It really depends on the type of game. I grew up playing video games, and I turned out all right. I don't think my parents ever really kept the violent stuff away from me, though I don't really remember when I started playing first person shooters or games with excessive gore. I was probably fairly young, though I still wouldn't want young children to play those games, despite how I turned out.

I don't think anyone can be too old to play video games. I think the notion of having a maximum age limit on playing video games is an immature one itself. Do want you want to do, for as long as you want to do it. If you're not hurting anyone, nobody should have a problem with it.

Pretty much what Tecca said. No such thing as too old. When it comes to children, well My son started at 3yrs old Playing Dirt 3 and Dirt showdown. Those are the only "grown up" games he is allowed to play so far, but he plays lots of educational and age appropriate games (Disney's Pixar Cars for example) as well. He is now 4 Years old and plays a few in browser games on PBSkids as he is learning to read so I make sure he is learning/playing with that sort of content.

Can young age of children control the games, so no worry, if lost control, is a other case.

Old age = if family with young children, set important for family first, the games is last way. Also control.

It is what i think off.

actually. i dont realy care? I mean. now i could see that i dont want children to play certain games. but man i was like 10 years old when i played turok. and realy. blood doesnt make children psychopaths.

I can see why you wouldnt let a child play amnesia, they might get some serious nightmares from that.
As for elderscrolls. i think i was 11 years old when i played my first one, i could be wrong here tho. And i WTF liked it. And i guess thats one of the reasons im hugeley into elder scrolls: Nos-fucking-stalgia.

On the topic of "too old" whoever tells you that you are immature if you still play video games when you are grown up just doesnt understand the medium, or like alot of people out there. Just wants to attack you, it seems irrational but my best friend for example will just use ANYTHING he can find to attack you, for no reason. Some people just want to feel superior. best you punch em in the gut.

Im thinking when im old. Life will be good: no longer worrying about looking atravtice, no workout, no more conversing with friends (theyre all dead), no more hobbies (Youll break your hip!) only video games and eating food.
actually that sounds terrible... better die with 50 or something.
