Are there many older gamers playing W101?

I've been playing this game on and off for at least 8 years, there is nothing wrong with playing a game you love. i'm an older gamer also.

Yes, I am an older player with two kids. My daughter actually got me started on this game when she was just starting Jr. High. Now, she's graduated. But yes, there are a lot of older people that still love and play Wiz101

I started playing with my kids. They are now grown and out on their own and I still play. I still watch Disney and Dreamworks movies too.

Growing old is mandatory, growing up, however, is entirely optional

Older player here. Nothing wrong with enjoying what was intended to be a kids game. They get all the good stuff these days. Me and my kids love it. Been playing off and on for a few years now. I even got my boyfriend into the game. Lets just say there is a large community of older players here. No shame in enjoying your time. Plus, this is so much better than the Roblox community that also has a lot of older players. Enjoy your gaming experience.

I've been playing for many years, started with my son who is now a Jr. in college. Over fifth tea. :)

I play with a friend that I met randomly and later found out we had kids the same age. I still enjoy playing!

I'm not that old, but I'm not 8 years old. XD

Cuz I'm level 69 and I know a lot about the game.

I am also an older player. I don't usually broadcast it, but one time someone told me that they felt a little self conscious about their age because they were in college and most of the players here are much younger. I thought it was funny and said that I am much older as well. When pressed for how much older, I replied that I watched first run episodes of the original Star Trek. The person then replied that I was "creepy" old and immediately unfriended me. Sheesh!!! I have a wizard avatar and I'm building an aquarium and someone responds like I tried to lure them into a van with offers of candy. So, that is why I keep my age to myself and just enjoy playing my necromancer.

Older Myth Wizard HereHave been playing off and on since 2009 I have been known to help out others a lot and on Special Events, when I do help people, I often gift packs to them! It helps to be friendly

I've been playing since December 2008 and I've grown with this game over the years. It's definitely been a wild ride through here through all the updates and people I've seen come and go.

I've been playing off and on for 9+ years. My oldest grandchild got me started she is now 17. I love this game, not only do you battle, you can craft, fish, garden, train pets and KI works on having a safe play enviroment. I play with my younger grand boys now, but I play on my own too. I have two accts so the kids play on one (I also have wizards on there too) and I play with them. Since I play mostly during the day, I come across many moms and grandparents as well as dads too. Enjoy the game, its great!

I'm an older player. Old enough to have a dad who watched the moon landing live at his school and old enough to know who all the old movies actors and stuff are

A few years ago the University of Hartford, in Connecticut did a demographic study which revealed many older players in W101. Also, AARP has mentioned Wizard101. From these facts, I think we can safely conclude that there is a wide spectrum of age among the "young wizards," taking classes at Ravenwood.

older player, I was around when the game first started. seeing the tv commercial at a very young age is what lead me to coming onto this cite. I mostly still play ( I am a teenager ) because it's a less tense game when it comes to other players. I don't have to fear being beaten to death by a higher level and losing stuff. Anyways, I am still active and wouldn't mind a chat buddy, lol.

I'm not sure how old is "older"
I am considered a legal adult, but rather you consider me old or not is a matter of opinion.
I did start playing this when I was much younger though so, take that as you will.
