51yrs old here. Computer forensics investigator.
Oddly enough, the IT department I'm with is filled with techs half my age; and none of them are gamers. There are only three gamers in our department of about 60 people. All of us gamers are in the 40+ age bracket. It's the strangest IT dept. I've ever been with in my past 30+ years of IT work. Many of them don't even watch sci-fi shows/movies and know little to nothing about Star Wars.
I mention I played a Sith all weekend and get nothing but blank stares.
PS. My wife's 52 and addicted to MMOs also.
