    do you think you have in you? What age do you think you will call it quits? I think I got at least another 15 yrs b4 I really consider putting the controllers down for good. That would put me at 48 yrs old.

    Probably when I'm 40 or so. Videogaming is actually becoming a true hobby for me. I used to hate sittin' in the house, now I can do it for hours. But I think I'll call it quits once my two year old twins are old enough to make fun of me for playing video games, lol.

    I'm 37 and don't plan on stopping. I plan on kicking my kid's butt in NCAA Football 2015 and then kicking my grandson's butt in NCAA 2035! Gaming slows down as your family life grows but there is no reason to quit.

    My kids are in to video games right now but my 5 year old son doesn't really play any sports games. Just Mario and games like that. Their joy for games will keep you playing with them.

    I'm gonna second this emotion. I'm 43 and still play on a regular. Although, it's not like before. I can't stay up all night gaming, and I don't have 5 different games going with multiple leagues, dynasties, franchises, etc. I run a football game and a shooting game, and half the time I'll just rent the shooter stuff.

    Between family time, work, porn, and a social life, the hours just aren't there...

    Helli, Bun in the oven!??!! Nice!!

    Considering I dont really like to watch TV besides The Yankees and Football....I probably wont stop. it is a nice stress relief and I am a very interactive person....I dont like spectating much of anything....I want to be playing or involved at some extent!

    If I have a son one day I think I would enjoy teaching him how to play Forza or some sports games!!(y)

    I feel like I should be able to play into my 40's. I'm 27 right now. As long as my wits about me, I want to keep playing. I would love to be able to compete in NCAA or Madden with my kid.

    I voted for 5 more years, but I meant that as being involved with online leagues. I feel like I'll always have a system, but I don't think I'll be involved in scheduling video game time for much longer than 5 years from now (when I hit 29).

    Married, three kids one is an adult now.

    I coach two sports.

    I love to game, I dont have the time I once had or the want to...

    User games are still a blast. Other games like Bioshock 1&2, Doom and games like that I still love to play and finish.

    I dont see stopping anytime soon.

    Gonna play til my arthritic hands can't do it any more.
    I got 2 kids 6 & 7, a business that eats up about 55 - 60 hours a week and a wife I share the living room and TV time with so don't get to game nearly as much as I did when I was in my teens or 20's. My son is 6 and starting to play football games and I'm looking forward to some heated dynasties and co-op play on shooters in the coming years. Hopefully I don't teach him the negative aspects of my hyper competitiveness/poor sportsmanship. My brother and I used to get so mad at each other that we wouldn't talk for days. Video games will either keep me and my son close or cause WW3.

    Seeing as I'm nearly 37 with two kids (ages 2 and 1) and I'm still playing video games, I don't see it stopping anytime soon.

    Like Juggernautblitz, I'm hoping that video games will be something that I will be able to connect with my boys on as they get older.

    Man Dru, you must be my east coast clone. Im just about to turn 37, have a 2 year old son and a new baby girl due in July. I still enjoy the sports games. Not so much the others. I dont see me throwing in the towel anytime soon.
