If you were old, would you still play video games?

    Most old people (above age 50) don't play video games, but what about you? Would you still play video games, if you were that old, or even older?

    For me, I'd probably say yes, especially with VR games becoming more prevalent and games evolving to be more realistic and more for everybody. Playing games have been a part of me for years, and will continue to be a part of me. Maybe when I retire in the far future, I'll sit back and play some of today's classic video games.

    I don't see why not, though I could see as the joints age and ware it being difficult on the hands to play a lot. Who knows if we'll even be still using a controller by then though, tech is moving so fast. I like video games a lot and can't see myself ever completely dropping them, at the very least I'd be watching others if that's still a thing. I can't wait to see where games go next.

    Well based of the new generation, many older people will become fond of new technology an most likely use it in the future as well

    Interesting! I wonder how grandchildren would react when they see their grandfather play video games. Perhaps it'll be the norm since video games are well-established in our generation.

    Most likely yes, and I believe many others will too. We live in a more modern age, I believe Generation Z, growing up with technology as we were kids. Therefore, many of us were previously gamers and such, therefore, there wouldn't be any reason why one will not play game as they become older.

    I think it's a possibility however in order to maintain a family and a job at the same time, video games will probably have to go. Coming back to play video games later in life would prove rather difficult after leaving them 30years earlier. However I think it will just be best to wait and see. ;)

    Yeah when you have a family/kids everything else goes pretty much bye bye!!! But that depends of the kind of game you are playing (for example Black Desert required a ton of time)...If you are competitive and want to have the best items all the time (means you must play everyday)... or if the game is casual and u can get everything by playing an hour a day!!!

    I would absolutely still play video games when i am old but not as much as i do now. I mean a lot of us in this age range play video games and people in this age range would be considering themselves gamers so it isn't surprising to see more old people playing video games in the future.

    Yes, I fear that this community will adapt to video games.
