Hey, I'm over 30 and I still play games on a regular basis. In fact
I just finished a session of "No One Lives Forever" (fun game). I
hook my laptop up to the TV and play while my wife lays on the couch
and shouts advice to (at?) me. Better than TV. Though it's true that
I now spend more time coding on my own game, and less time playing

I would say people over 40 maybe, because they were less likely to grow
up with video games, but even there I would be skeptical.
