Too old to be a Gamer?

Not a lot of people have given me a hard time about being 37 years old and still enjoying video games. But according to many on social media, it almost seems controversial to be a middle aged gamer, but the fact of the matter is, we make up a large majority of the gaming community. The average age of a gamer in today's world is around 36. So, there’s that.

The Positive Gamer Challenge

What is happening to the gaming community? Have we slipped into a never ending loop of toxicity? Sure, a little trash talk is commonly found in the competitive scene, but we have gone beyond that.

I have certainly gotten used to the trolls and they really don’t bother me, but I’m not coming across any new friends either. This is what bothers me.

It seemed like every store I walked in, had a standup arcade or pinball machine. While a quarter per play didn’t seem like much in the moment, arcade games had a way of draining my already tiny wallet, but I enjoyed every minute of it.
