I have no children but love playing the game, at the early stages sure a child can get into it and play around and have fun but later on it really shines for the adult player. Sometimes I wonder should I be enjoying this mmo lol I see more and more adults actually do play it seriously which makes me happy.

Older gamers? Depends on the definition of older.

People grow old only by deserting their ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest wrinkles the soul. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope as old as your despair. In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, so long are you young. When your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and then only, are you grown old. And then, indeed as the ballad says, you just fade away. (Douglas MacArthur)

I am very young at and I play Wizard101

Most of the postings are correct, it depends what one would consider older. I play on a daily basis with a friend I found on the coast. I also play with my son and his children, so yea I am a grandparent and I love the game. Well until the mess up with the new world not very happy about that but still enjoy the game. So if some of the 'older' gamers ever see me on give me a shout.

My best friend introduced me to this game one night when I was staying at her house. Honestly, I thought it was stupid and childish at first. When I got home I decided to check it out again and once I really started playing, I was hooked. I reached level nine and about a half the first couple hours I was playing and had to get a card the same day. I will stop being a 'kid' in February and college is just around the corner... I love this game. I think Wizard101, while geared towards kids it seems, is fun for everyone!

I saw a couple posts in the thread where grandparents are playing and it makes me feel better about being addicted to this game! Me and my best friend who is only a month older than I am spend whole weekends just playing wizard101. I'm fighting dragons, she's still fighting crocodiles.

I'm an older player - 37 to be exact! My 8 yr old daughter convinced her dad to get her an account (he's a former WOW player). They both played for awhile before getting me on board. I'm still going strong, but they've moved on to other games. LOL! I have to say I'm glad that I'm not the only older player who LOVES this game!!!

started playing when I was 27 I'm 31 soon to be 32... I love this game. No kids yet and all my friends wouldnt play this game if i paid them lol. I love growing my character and I'm a Magic the gathering player so this fills my card playing and gaming needs. I would love to get a gathering together of the older players in my local area.

Older player here... I enjoy the game and am happy to say all my friends are "mature" as well. I have 3 complete characters (zero quests) and am closing in on the last 3.

idk why age really matters. I am younger than a teen and I have soloed the game easily with a myth. Why are so many people having trouble in Azteca? Does age really matter?

Old, young and in between. Wizard 101, according to numerous Gamer Mags, is an MMORPG that spans the generation gap. I for one am glad of that. There are statistics out there that show just how many grandparents keep in touch with their grandkids by playing Wizard 101.

When I first started playing online games I was concerned that I was too "Old" but that is just silly. Fun is fun no matter what your age. Now the only numbers I concern myself with in any game is my WINNING Score.
