    Altough you are right about the reaction time etc, you might not have a real place in the competive scene or in the very high rankings. Just because younger person can handle faster for obvious reasons :-)

    I'm 38 and I play competitively -

    My reaction time is a day to day basis, it has nothing to do with age, it has to do with stress and life. Some days I am a god and sometimes I just turn off the game. The days I turn off the game is because I am stressed out or I have too many tabs open in my brain while playing so I ended up being distracted and my reaction time has gone down the toilet. It's hard to react when you're thinking about stuff you need to do the next day or anything that is going on in your life at the moment. When you're young your responsibilities and stress levels are no where near as they are today or you just cared less back then.

    I take stress/relaxing supplements over the weekend if I know I have a lot of gaming to do and it works well. If you smoke Pot that works best but it makes me sleepy:)

    Anyways your reaction time doesn't degrade it improves if anything. If your can't play as much as you once did then yes you can't react as fast as you're out of practice..

    I also play hardcore... lets team up sometime
    41, playing since the 80s.

    I usually go ok. Usually get in the top 5 in conquest.

    I play normal if I'm feeling old, but HC mostly.

    My clan leader from the game Crossfire was 68 years old back in the days of 2010-2013. A cool guy and even bought some of his favorite members in-game currency from time to time.

    No age limit

    I don't think there is an true age limit, just look at this guy.


    LOL. That ADS/fire spam though. Even 66 year olds abuse the AA.

    I've never actually witnessed anyone doing that. Damn. AA is OP like that.

    Anyway, I'm 36 and I used to play games a lot my younger years but stopped for awhile and for the last 6 months or so I started playing all the time thanks to BFH/BF4. I think it annoys my wife but she watches a lot of tv and its not really different if she watches 3 hours of some chick show on Netflix or I "kill" other people in online gaming.

    I've always been bewildered by that. Some girls didn't like the fact that I played games but they sit for countless hours watching reality shows.

    My dad still plays and he's 65. Not battlefield, mostly tomb raider/ resident evil type games. It doesn't matter it you're good or not, its just good for your brain. There's a great doc on the bbc i think its a panorama, looks at the elderly who play games and how there brains change. Also if they make you violent. Which they dont.

    The party don't stop till my body drops so therefore there is no such thing as age limits for video games (except for giving young kids like rated M games *cough* *cough* Call of Duty *cough* *cough*)

    Haven't played any of the Modern Warfare games and don't intend to shell out $100 for a game series I haven't played and we haven't seen any gameplay of it except a smidgen of the campaign. Preordering it for Infinite Warfare is blasphemy

    I'm hoping they'll let you get the remaster without having to get that new ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ game. I hate the newer ones.
