The Old Gamer

Marie and I were watching some competitive gaming the other night, and while she joked at me that I should enter a competition for one of these games, I had to inform her, I’m simply too old.

Which is kind of weird when you think about it, at only 35, I’m too old for competitive gaming. My eyesight isn’t what it used to be, my reaction time is no where near what a teenagers is. It’s kind of sad.

Then I start thinking about the flip side, we looked up a couple of these players, see when they retire and such, and the average retirement age is around 25…

Heck, even hockey players can make it into their 30’s before they’re considered “not as good”.

Competitive gaming is hardcore people. Just hope they make enough from their winnings so that the next 60 years is easy on them.
