I'm an older gamer. I play wizard101 while my fiancé plays his playstation 4. lol I have been playing this game for a long time and I love it. The funny thing is when I went to go buy a wizard card the cashier asked me if I really play this game. I was like yeah, it's a good game despite kids asking you if you want to be their girl. lol Well he said I don't look like the type that would play this game. lol I told him don't let my looks fool you I am addicted to this game. You should try the free trial and see if you like it. Oh yeah I got my niece and cousin into this game also.

I am a lvl 54 ice wizard, I am older and would love to have some questing friends that are older too. I am currently working on Grizzleheim, and finishing Ds (only mmalestare left) any suggestions on how to get some questing buddies that play evening time after work like me. Thanks!

Would like to find older people close to lvl 55, who need a questing buddy. I would be happy to help you in exchange for the same "help". I am working on grizzleheim as well as defeating malestare any suggestions?

Thanks

I am a young teen. I play but I know my parents play also we do stuff together. And I have met some older gamers also. I think wizard101 appeals to all people youing or old. That's because its fun challenging and absolutely amazing! My dad only plays it because he loves doing bored games like this. My mom does not play but when she does we do youtube wizard101 movies play games and work on on baby wizards.

Have you tried posting for help or buddies on any of the fansites? They have groups of players who volunteer to help with difficult areas, and also older players looking for friends/buddies. Here is a link to one of the fansites in case you are interested:

I am an older player. I missed playing another game I liked, which doesn't work right for me anymore and decided to try this one :)

I may not be a child but I'm an adult and I must say that I am enjoying W101, at first I thought it was a childs game but I now realize that this is not true it's for all ages and it does take time to get to where some players are, I've already completed wizard city and krokotopia and am working on Marleybone.

when I started playing i had the same question, but if you go on to youtube you can see the majority of game plays are made bye people in their 20-30's, and i think that the only reason people say it is for little kids is because of the fact that it is "magic" and "childish graphics" but put some one in the game and they will fall in love with the challenge it puts in front of them.

I've been playing for a long while now, but finally peeking out of lurk mode. Another older player here, checking in! So far I only really have one character I play as, but it's kind of funny: more than once now I've been asked if I had a higher character, say in the level 90+ range. Players seem very surprised when I say my currently-level-70 Life wizard is my first character.

Supposedly it's because I "look like I know what I'm doing"! So always a good sign, guess I'm doing something right!

checking in, college age here. Good to see older players as I would assume they would be more cash shop able and that would give the game more longevity. I also played Fusionfall when it was around, and of course many more adult oriented traditional mmorpgs. I played FTP/PTW/Cashop and also sub games too. Been PC mmoing for a decade now. Nice to meet you oldies :)
