    I was looking through a thread poasted by turtle112 " how old are you " and it would seem that the average age of the Wii owner is >20 . Although mosx's stated age is fourty four .
    But what I would like to know is , how many Wii Chat members are older than 35years?
    Have you played video games since day dot?
    I'm 38 years old , first video game - SpaceInvaders 1980 .

    I'm not so sure.

    Here's the thread so you can check if you want. but from what I can see, there's actually quite a few 20+ people.

    Of course, the amount of regular posters on this thread will enivatably be low, considering the kinds of people that don't have the time for forums would be older people anyway...

    I was 7 or 8 at that time, playing pinballs in a games arcade and I saw people putting in the first Pong machine, we were all very excited. Since then I have been hooked by video gaming. :lol:

    I think you need to look at a different form of media if you want a realistic answer. While it may seem that most Wii owners are younger than 20 if you look here, you have to consider: firstly, how many 40 year olds join forums, and secondly, how many kids who say they own Wiis actually paid for them with daddy's money.

    With that said, I'm 17 and every piece of technology in my possession was either paid for out of my pocket or given as a present.

    listen..Im only 14 (I turn 15 on May 21'st), and my dream is to be a writer for "Nintendo Power" magaziene, but despite my age I take pride in saying that I know as much as any body that has been playing video games since 1974...Oh and by the way, september 19 1974 was the day that the first video game, being Pong, hit the shelves.:smilewinkgrin:

    37 here.....been gaming since the early arcade days '77ish, had an Atari 2600 as first console, ZX81, ZX Spectrum, Atari ST, Amiga plus most consoles along the way....currently have a Wii, PS3, DS and PC. Love gaming, although my reactions aren't what they used to be and I much prefer a JRPG or Strategy game these days....although I'm really enjoying Motorstorm on the PS3 and just finished Zelda Twilight Princess on Wii.

    :D
