Thirsty Conversations: At What Age Do You Intend To Stop Gaming?

Thirsty Conversations: At What Age Do You Intend To Stop Gaming?

It’s blasphemy, I know. Some of you are already spewing bile at me, saying, “Is this guy freaking crazy?! Gaming will never stop for me!” Okay, that’s you, but some people actually intend to stop gaming when they arrive at a certain age. Take Games Thirst user Foxton for example, who said by the time Grand Theft Auto VI comes out, he won’t be playing games! The man believes that after a while, when one gets older, kids are demanding, wife wants more attention and life itself leads in other directions, he’ll have no time for gaming. That’s understandable.

But what about you, do you intend to stop gaming at a certain age? If so, what’s that age? Let’s talk! It’s the official Games Thirst retirement program.

    Well, uh, if there’s some way into afterlife, I don’t think I’ll ever do.
    Seriously though, I will never do that. Even if it means just one match or one session of a game in a week or something, I will never stop that. It’s my passion.

    I plan never to stop gaming. Ever. In fact, one of the first things I’ll teach my kids is…..you guessed it.

    I also never plan to stop gaming, but sometimes you just have stress on you and just the gaming feeling goes away. And who knows maybe the gaming industry will crash, or maybe the stupid COD MW4 or 5 screws up the industry so much like what happened to the Atari with crappy games and the industry crashes for a decade.

    Just hope I can get a GF who loves gaming like I do. :D

    I’ll never stop playing, maybe grow busy to the point where I can’t play as much, but never stop. Even then though, I’ll be sure my significant other plays games, and pass it on to my kids… Yea haha.

    well, playing games in general never, ill just keep going through older games.
    but playing new games, well, that will probably be VERY soon!
    the way the industry is going, ie copy this, copy that, uniqueness and originality being illegal, ill be surprised if in 5 years time im still buying new games!
    im just sick of going to the store, picking 3 games, bringing them home, playing them and sighing saying dident i play this last month?
    honestly have not had a unique different experience since freaking heavy rain!
    and before that, i honestly cant remember!
    the amount of titles we have had this gen which have truly been innovative and unique, created their own genre if you will, could literally be counted on 1 hand!
    wheres this generations ICO, SOTC, indigo prophecy, beyond good and evil, ect, ect?
