Joystiq has an article up recounting what gamers over the age of 30 should not be doing.
It is especially funny since according to the ESA, the average age of a gamer is now 30 years old. With my birthday coming up, I am pretty close to the average age of gamers and its funny because now I want to play almost more games than I did when I was a child.
Some of the funnier on the pretty long list include:
- Quit your job to pursue a pro-gaming career
- Play any game with Princess Toadstool in it
- Live in your parents’ basement to support a gaming habit
- Pretend that movies like Doom and Tomb Raider are anything but crap
I still dream of being a professional gamer some day. I think that would be cool, but every time I see one of those videos with some super FPS player killing hundreds of people without dying, I get back to work…
(And Mario Sunshine is the best!)
