I've been gaming now for over 20 years, and will be for another 20 at least.

I've already taught my kids to game, and they ALSO write gaming books now, which is awesome!

Hopefully I will be teachng my GRANDCHILDREN to game, and maybe one day produce a book written by three generations of gamers in the same family.

While I don't write my daughter might once she is finished with collage. I to am looking forward to a three generational game.

"No, I'll be dead"
"No, because 5th edition won't be availible for tabletop. But I -will- strap on my latex virtual reality suit to play in the online 3d environment."

On my birthday this March I will celebrate playing for 23 years, ever since my mom looked all over town for that weird hobby store with the game I read about in the local hippie newspaper (where you explored dungeons and killed monsters "on a board you made out of graph paper") and got it for me for my 15th birthday. The other day she was visiting my house and flipped through one of the game books lying around, and asked me whether I'd like something special gaming-wise in a couple of years when I celebrated my 25th anniversary :) My wife just rolled her eyes :)

Yeah, I think I'll be gaming 20 years from now.

If I'm not gaming, I'll still be creating worlds and characters in my head and figuring out how they interact, which is like gaming only with no friends. Honestly, I don't think my brain would be functioning if I weren't. I simply cannot imagine a life that doesn't involve gaming or game-related creativity in one form or another.

So yeah. Double my age (almost), triple my gaming experience. It's a sure bet.

I sure as hell hope that I'll be gaming to my heart's content in 20 years! Maybe I could be the sponsor of a D&D club at the high school I end up teaching at.... or maybe.. just maybe....

I won't stop gaming until someone pries my dice from my cold, dead fingers... and then I'll come back as an undead and take them back! :D

Hell Yes! Our group is now on its 21st continuous year, with four founding players and two who have been around for almost that long. We have a running joke about how we will all wind up in the same nursing home, and have the nurse's aids bring us down to the lounge each night to game.

Seriously though, I figure in another decade our next generation will be at the table as well, since one player has started a group for his 13-year-old, and my 9-year-old has been having a blast helping me create NPC's and stories for my current module.

I am a late bloomer. I did not start gaming until six years ago when I was 39. It has become such an important part of my life so I have to say yes I will still be gaming twenty years from now.

As someone who took a near 20 year break (took finding the gold box 3E adventure game in the WotC store at the mall to get me back into gaming), I don't see myself stopping. I regret all the years that have passed that I could have been gaming.

I've gotten my kids into the hobby. They like playing D&D. My son loves CCG's. I just started getting into Warhammer and hope to get him involved as well.

So, I'm definitely going to be playing in 20 years.

Roleplaying is my primary passion, my creative outlet, the oral tradition by which I intend to pass stories on to my descendants. Something could change that, but it would have to be something that I can't even imagine now.

Like Elf Witch, I came to the hobby late. But I was born to game. I can't imagine not doing it. If I can't find players in the real world, then I'll DM and play online. Unless my mind goes, I will continue to game.


i said yes, but i don't really know. but i've been gaming longer than pretty much anything else in my life, so i imagine its a yes.
