Only time I can really sit down and play a full game is when I get sick and the wife and kids are at work/school. Then i'll get some couch time for a few hours while under a blanket eating soup. But the vast majority of time, i'm focused on work, kids, wife, house, hobbies, etc and video games is a very low priority.

I do intend to pick up the next release of "Last of Us" and try to fit that in though.
Yeah i get where you're coming from, I don't really play GTA as much as i did growing-up.
Nowadays i'm more of a RPG ie; Skyrim type of player and when i do get to play i like to immerse myself in the world, Not play for 10-minutes and leave but that's just me; You can't just play Skyrim for 10-mins...you cant.

Here, here!!!

I'm 45, started playing video games back in 1981 when my parents got us kids the Sears Tele-games system, basically a knockoff of the Atari 2600. Space Invaders and Target Fun (aka Air-Sea Battle) were our 1st two games we owned.

Haven't stopped since. I've been a member of Big Fish Games for 10 years and have something like 60 games installed on my laptop. Got heavily into Sims and Sims 2. I just ordered the Atari Flashback 8 console, which has a lot of the games I played as a, child, and I was able to find web-based versions of the few that console doesn't have.

My latest gamer discovery is this site:

I have a cousin who was deep into video games at like 35 yrs old. He would be talking to people from all over the word and kids half his age he was competing with. He really seemed to be losing it but his good looks and boyish charm still landed him a lovely girl and they’re married now. I imagine he must still play.
