Gamer culture undergoes maturation to stay relevant with grown-up gamers

Implications - Video games -- a market segment heavily made up of teenage boys -- are undergoing something of a maturation with products that appeal to the 30 or 40-something player that still takes pleasure in playing, but needs a balance between gaming and adult commitments like marriage, physical health or vehicle ownership. This new community for aging gamers removes the stigma associated with gaming after 20 and expands the market into new, unexplored areas that give new relevancy for a pastime predetermined as being juvenile or weird for men or women with their own children to partake in.
