Topic: How many " older " folks play with the 3DS?

Posts 1 to 20 of 98


Just curious, what age bracket are you?

My wife is in the 50's bracket. I don't play games much, but I am starting to get excited about a couple games I bought her for Christmas ( ok, I bought 2 for me, MarioKart 7 and SteelDiver )



I'm actually 20's (which is still older than what most people would assume 3DS players are).

Got a nice selection of both more "mature" games (MGS3D, AC:AHL, DOAD, FE:A) & "kiddie" games (SM3DL, MK7, KI:U) amongst others.

Glad to hear that there are people of your age group interested in the 3DS' lineup. Never to old for gaming

My mom is 56 and loves her DSi. Doesn't have a 3DS, but is always asking me about the games.

I'm 20 and my friend who enjoys Nintendo is 21. No sign of that stopping any time soon.
I already feel old but I'm happy that there are other gamers in my age category.
