"Do you think it's okay for men to play video games in their 30s and over?" asks Today show viewer Elizabeth in a note sent in recently for the program's segment with TV personality Donny Deutsch, The Other View: Getting A Guy's Perspective On Love.
Ignoring that the average age for a gamer is 37 years old, according to a report from the Entertainment Software Association, 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, the oldest member in the group discussing the topic (she was born in 1957, and was likely too busy hunting woolly mammoths to bother with video games in her youth), also eloquently voiced her distate for older gamers by adding, "That's weird... Xbox."
Deutsch, Gifford, and Hoda Kotb all agree, though, that it's alright if you're playing video games with your kids. See, they're just talking about the "those weird ones in the basement" here.
