Playing video games at 22 alright?

I used to be a gamer in high school. World of warcraft.. all that jazz. Got out of it after high school pretty quickly. I'm 22 now and haven't play video games in years. I think I would feel like a manchild if I start playing again. In the evenings when the day is over. Want to buy an xbox one and get surround sounds and make it bada$$.

  • There are games that are way more mature as in story, than many movies. The Last of Us is an example; I've never seen a movie similar to what that game portrayed and made us feel.
    Some people still see video games as games for childs, and they're absolutely wrong. Though there are games for kids, there's also games for adults, just like movies.
    Video games aren't just plain moving around shooting something, they now have a story, characters to relate to, morals and ethics...
    It's totally fine to be 22 and play games, even if you're 60, it's been proven that gamea help with diseases like Alzheimer.
    I'll ve a video game designer (hopefully), and I'll keep playing games till my eyes can't take it anymore.
    All in moderation of course, games can't be a priority, they have to be a hobby for when you have nothing more important to do.

  • All in moderation. There's nothing sexy about a guy who would rather play video games than play with me. But everyone needs some kind of fun release at times.

  • LOL video games are for all ages. Otherwise, there wouldn't be games like Outlast or The Forest. These games are only of the horror genre, but there are countless other genres for people your age.

  • Seriously, my brother is 28 and he is an avid Assassins (and other games) gamer. Of course it shouldn't start interfering with your normal day-to-day activities and social life.

  • I say they are totally fine at any age. I hope to still be gaming until I can no longer use a mouse and keyboard or controller.

  • Voted A. Dude, don't over-think. I'm 29, and I do play games - a lot! Have been a fan of gaming for almost 2 decades now.

    I do ensure that I only play during my free time, and I'm not addicted to games. As long as gaming does not interfere with your daily routine, it shouldn't be a problem. I'm pretty sure I'll continue playing games for as long as it's physically possible for me!

  • I mean... video games are certainly more enriching than watching football all weekend. You are solving puzzles or using your imagination or coming up with strategies depending on the games you play. Watching tv and sports is fine, but I feel like your mind is going to be more sharpened by an interactive leisure experience than one that doesn't involve any mental stimulation. I play a lot of video games and no one has ever had an issue with it.

  • Totally fine. There are times when I feel like going back to that stuff for a little while. I still have my PlayStation in my room. Haven't used it in years. When I was bored there were times when I felt like plugging it in, turning it on, and playing some old games. Good memories. Totally fine of having feelings and actually going back that stuff every once in a while.

    You're almost a decade younger than the average age of gamers. If you start playing online games, you may get called "sonny".

  • Playing video games for an hour or two is no worse than watching tv for an hour or two.
