Well I was wondering what age group plays videogames the most. I'm 17.. 18 in February. It seems most video games are made directed to teenagers. I don't think I'll ever give up video games, even if i'm 80. The only way I'll stop is I'm either dead or blind. I wonder what the future of gaming will be? what more can they do? ne ideas?

I think in the future many games will become alot more educational.
Hiding education within a fun game is an ingeneous way to teach, and many people hate school, or at least find it boring.
That would be one of the positive futures of gaming.
However, as gaming becomes more realistic, people get more wrapped up in the games, and more obsessive.
Gaming will most likely cause a media backlash in the near future; there are already many reports linking video games to obesity in North America.
So, this would logically lead to the integration of exercise and gaming.
One such innovation currently on the market is DDR; another is PS2's Eye Toy.
While I am not a fan of either one, I think it is great that they exist, and hopefully the video game industry will continue to develop interactive games that target a more athletic audience.
Not only could these interactive games be fun, they would also lead to better general health of the users.
The bottom line, though, is that games will develop to suit the demands of the consumer.
So games will only exist that market research shows profitable.

with all the new technology coming into video games, it surprises me how they couldn't have done this sooner. They probably kept this away from the public just to make our anticipation grow more. I usually find out that the industry had worked on projects years before things even gets released. And for the educational thing, yea, some companies are taking that step to intergrate the two aspects.. but there are only limited amount. I doubt any videogame about shooting something can really teach kids anything. However, whatever the games topics are, I think the gaming industry should at least stop releasing some of the most crappy looking games ever. some games are just meant to be kept the way it was. for example, the contra series... I personally feel like the originals for NES was much better than shattered soldiers and especially the one for PS. Another example would be the Ninja Turtles series... I use to be a fan! until the recent games came out for it

I used to be an coutner strike & RPG freak, I quit at 19 coz I don't have time for that kind of game. I only play strategy game now like dawn of war & warcraft.
But my point is you'll get enuf all of those stuff someday
