With a few exceptions, I have found that most people online seem to be in there 20's or older. What is the average age do you think?

I'm 33, so I guess I'll set the mark high.

Most gamers on xbl are in their teens. Of course you get the smaller kids which make up a far less percentage of the population than most think. You also have the guys/girls in their 20-30's as well as a few in their 40's. If i was to guess an average i'd say about 22, and don't ask how I got that lol.

If I was a betting man I would say the average would be 12, cause thats what seems to be on the other end of my headset every time I try to play....

Nah, im sure thats only because you notice the little kids more because of the high voices, so it seems like there are more of them.

I dont know the average age, but im 15.

I'd say the average age ONLINE is 18 or 19. The average age of Xbox gamers in general is probably something like 15. It would be hard to get an accurate estimate on a Gamespot forum, because the majority of us are in the 16-30 set (some older, a small amount under). The only way to really estimate would be to poll a couple thousand people, ensure you're not focusing on one niche (like online gaming) and find the median age. If you were to do the same here, you would end up with a median age around 20 or 22.

I'm 22.

You mean the asians? I get one or two of those every now and again. All the 12 year olds are normally all on Halo 3. Other then that, I would say the average age is 19-20. I would say 75% are 18+ with 15% being 12 and under and 5% being asian and 5% being other. I base all this on nothing.

I'm 21.

The average age is probably 15-20 or at least thats the most people you will meet. It also depends on what game you play. CoD4/R6V2 are going to be older than the average Halo players but I dont see why everyone complains about people yelling in your ear on Halo I never hear the other team and normally im at least playing with one friend so if the annoying people are on my team which they never are but if they ever do I just private chat my friend or mute.

The average Xbox gamer is 9,672 days old. Not counting leap years because leap years are stupid.

Wow,

Everyone seriously under estimates the average age of gamers. Teenagers appear to be on the lower tail of the distribution. I did a google search and found mutiple sources that state the average age of a gamer is anywhere between 29 and 33. I myself am right there around that average at 34.

http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/2004-05-12-gamer-demographics_x.htm

Although, according to one of those articles, the console crowd tends to be younger than the pc gamer - which makes sense due to the high cost of pc gaming.

I think there are a lot of older gamers that aren't counted on websites like this.

I'm 38. Folks my age have been playing videogames since Pong.

The 360 rocks!

Suuuuuuuurrrrrre you won't. Just like the rest of us in our 30's who didn't think we'd still be playing now.

its a hobby, same as its always been, and video games as a hobby have always been popular with adults. (just like models, electric trains, Remote control cars, airplanes, boats.)

It's most likely to be 42, since that is the answer to everyting.

Without any research my guess would be either late teens or early 20's.

Well I'm 21...but I'd say the average age falls somewhere in the 18-25 range. But I swear to god every pre-teen from the Northeast and/or Midwest plays on xbox live and insists on playing their music for everyone through their headset. Brilliant.
