To me gamers have always been all over the place and great for bringing ages together. At Quakecon gatherings there were groups of people all chilling together from 15 - 50 like it's nothing. All just friends.
I dig kids at games, though lots of people say kids are bad I feel like I was better at games when I was 10 - 18. I've also gamed with a 65 year old who played Quake 3, competently. <3 the old timers as well.
