    WoW Player Ages

    I wanted to see what age most wow players are. I thought it would be interesting. Not much else to it. So put your age into the poll and we'll see.

    Depending on which study you look at, the average age for MMO players ranges anywhere from 28 to 35. Last I saw, the average age of WoW players specifically was a little over 28. I don't have any links handy, but it's not that hard to google it.

    Me, I'm 34. Been playing since just before patch 2.3, so however long that's been.

    36 here. Sigh... hate having to tick that 35-40 box on surveys, it makes me feel downright ancient...
    When asked about the role of women in video games, Samus Aran said, "..." - and then she blew up the planet. AGAIN.

    I used to work at a high school. None of my kids knew who Duran Duran was.

    A little part of me died that day.

    Nor am I. 30+ tends to be too.... life-oriented for a major time-investment game like WoW. And anything under 15 tends to be too immature to be here.

    Ugh... someone on my RealID because he's a reasonably good tank had a broadcast the other day about how Linkin Park would be remembered far longer and far better than Duran Duran ever would. I could only quietly facepalm and shake my head for a moment. There just are no words. I've gotten used to ending up being the 'den mother' of most any guild I'm in, but now and again the age difference really hits me.

    Still and all, my grandpa (rest his soul) was playing Nintendo games with me when I was a teenager, and at 65 he could whip me and most of my friends at Super Mario Bros., so IMO there's no such thing as too old for games as long as you're still having fun.

    You know, you are sampling the age of MMO-CHAMP and not so much WOW with this poll.

    I'm almost 26 and I've been playing since 2005. I don't always act my age, and I like it that way (my room is decorated with fuzzy posters, among other things, but apparently I can get away with that because I'm an artist ).
