Today show says that people over 30 shouldn’t play games

Videos News

The Today show confirmed their, and in general, the mainstream media’s, ignorance regarding video games.  But you probably already knew that, huh?

“Do you think it’s okay for men to play video games in their 30s and over?” Today show viewer Elizabeth asked  TV personality Donny Deutsch.

Despite the fact that the median age for gamers is over 37, Deutsch says it’s not okay: “When you’re in your 30s, there should be something more on your mind or attention than video games.”

Kathie Lee Gifford decided to add her unwanted two cents in as well.  Check it out below and then facepalm yourself until your head hurts.

But this is actually interesting, as we have here a clip of one Mr.  Al Roker playing a game on the Today show just a few months ago. Are you saying he is weird?  Thats just offensive and mean Today. Sheesh…

    That guy must just be terrible at games, that is why he is haten.

  • Considering that the older you get, the less you have to fill your time with, I think it’s perfectly acceptable to play more games the older you get.

    Ah. I usually watch the Today show. I didn’t see this though.
    I say do what makes you happy. Screw what other people think!

    What a bunch of idiots.

    You know what. I say if you take care of your other responsibility (i.e. Bills, food and the like) you should buy whatever makes you happy.
    If you want to spend your free time playing games what’s wrong with that?
    I’m sure they wouldn’t say the same thing for BOOKS, which are a hobby, they put you in a fantasy state of mind, and you experience things that aren’t 100% real.
    So, like I said before, do what you want. Ignore the haters.

    • TOTALLY AGREED! Listen to this Cellophane Girl and become wise, TODAY SHOW
