Anyways, do you ever feel that your timed has passed as a gamer and you have to move on?

I play guild wars with a 44 year old grandmother and her 19 year old son,  your never too old, just there is alot of immature kids online.

check out The Older Gamers community. I think you have to be 25 years old to join, but there are tons of people in there, and like 5 guilds at the 100 member limit, plus several guilds allied with the main ones, all filled with people from TOG.

I know what you mean, but 20 is still young.  But it's hard to have much leisure time as you get older.  Personally I prefer to read a book than play video games.  I've never played with someone else, I don't even know what it's called or how to do it.  I mean, I've played with friends in the flesh...but whatever that stuff the kids are into these days with that microphone deal and whatnot-haven't done it, and not interested.  I'm 26f and I only play maybe 10 times a year.  When I get a new game though (which isn't often) I'll play a bit more. 
I played more when I was a child, with my coleco, atari, NES and SNES.  Only at night though, during the day I was usually outside playing, as all children should.  It's sad how most parents nowadays just plop their kid in front of tv/computer/video games and consider them being occupied and out of their hair.  SAD. 
 
I do think this generation is too technology reliant.  Any thoughts?

No. I still do play videogames but not that very often. I wouldn't stop playing videogames because that's the only choice I would do in my own time other than just something else that I'm not interested in.
