Am I too old for Minecraft?

Hello everyone.

I am 16 years old and I recently got back into playing minecraft. I hadn't played it for a good year and a half because I simply got bored of it but I am now back and I feel ready to play a bunch again. You see, I first started playing minecraft back in the fall of 2010 when I was only in 4th grade. I've seen this game grow and evolve over the years and I can't tell you how much fun i've had. But only recently, when I started playing again. I felt... Left out, or not in my place. I feel that because i'm 16 and all my other friends have moved on the other games. I feel like I shouldn't be playing. Right now is a time in my life when I have started to think about my early adult plans in a couple of years and I can't help but wonder if I should be playing at this age. Now I know what you guys may be thinking, "Oh! You can play at age 50 for all I care, It doesn't matter! Aslong as your enjoying yourself!". And to an extent this is true, but I can't find people my age to play with anymore. Everytime I play a game and someone asks if they wanna discord. They always turn out to be way below my age and I feel like i'm an oddball in everyplace I go. I never thought back in the day, everyone was my age too. I figured there were a diverse range of ages playing the game. Basically what I'm trying to say is. Am I welcome?? In this community that I have come to love for 43.75% of my entire life!? (Yes I did the math). I really don't want to feel this way. Is there anyone out there my age or older that feels the same way? I have a pretty good YouTube channel going that I have had for 2 years now and I've uploaded 100+ videos and my subscribers enjoy what I do post but I don't DARE upload a minecraft video because to them it's "Childish". So again, if there is anyone else out there that feels the same way I would love to know. THANKS!

Of course your not too old to play minecraft, and dont think that uploading a minecraft video is "childish"

Look at Petezahhutt(I might have spelled it incorrectly), a youtuber, he streams minecraft and gets a good amount of positive feedback

I think you're looking to deep into it Mr. Bud... I've been playing Minecraft for a long time and i'm older then you, most of my friends are around the same age as i am and we all still enjoy playing Minecraft from time to time, i spend most of my time running servers more then i do just playing on them, i also play it in a different way then most people do, i don't go around playing mini games and stuff like that, i like City life servers like how i run mine. Age in many ways is just a number, be you and do you, Minecraft is for anyone who enjoys it, i don't think people outgrow Minecraft with age. You see, it's a game that's only as fun as you allow it to be, if you can think it, you can do it! You need a bit of imagination to play, if you go into Minecraft with none it's not all that fun. So it's not that you're too old, it's just that the others lost what it was like to have fun playing the game, so do yourself a favor and don't lose it! Stash it away once in awhile so it's that much more fun to come back after awhile but never lose what fun Minecraft can be, because once you do, good luck getting it back.

Surely this can be solved reasonably.

Hey there Snowy_Parker! I'm 15 and had your problem once before. If public opinion about you is all you care about, then go ahead and drop minecraft in favor of a game such as PLAYERUNKOWN BATTLEGROUNDS. However, if like me, you couldn't care less, then go ahead, do what makes you happy. I mean, the game is rated E for everyone for a reason right? Like, a game like that appeals to the greatest common denominator and would have a larger impact on a larger audience. Yes, minecraft is filled with at the very least 65-75% kids, And on console, this number is almost certainly 90%. You said you wanted to think about your future, which I respect, however, don't let your plans get in the way of what makes you happy, because that's what life is in the end right?

I wish you luck on your journey!

Dude , I'm 13 and I freaking play on a server with 9 year olds . It's good , bad and great at the same time. Just because you are 16 ain't gonna mean that everybody's gonna laugh at you playing 'Minecraft' It's RATED E for everyone! It doesn't matter if you are 16 and the other people are below in age. The server I play is filled with 9 year olds and most of them are my friends. Tbh , Minecraft is filled with like 60% of it with kids , so you gotta get along with them. And yes 'Minecraft' in my opinion cannot be consider childish. Why ? Just because little kiddies play it? Remember the time when Minecraft was in Beta and Alpha? There were so many grown men and 15-18 and 20+ year old men playing! But yes... as life goes on... we change our opinions about things. Today I am playing Minecraft and a 50 years later.... I would have forgotten it.
So in conclusion , my pal . don't quit the game because you feel different. If there are kids , try to be friendly. Keep a friendly attitude with them. They wouldn't be afraid of you. They wouldn't want to be away from you.And yes, don't be afraid of posting Minecraft video's on your Youtube Channel. Minecraft is one of the most popular Youtube Topics! There are many Youtubers who are 20+ and still play the game and have many subscribers! I'm pretty sure if you work hard too , you would even reach a lot subs.

And keep on playing Minecraft!!
Don't break your childhood memories!!

P.S: I know about those cringy annoying kids. I have faced many of them in my life too. Especially on Minecraft Servers. I suggest to avoid them.

There are plenty of people way older than that that are still playing.

I remember when I was in middle school and my dad told me I'd grow out of Pokemon when I got older. I'm 22 now and I still play because I still enjoy it.

I'm turning 18 in 2 days and I still play minecraft, the best example of mature people playing this game is youtubers and modders, like the hermitcraft community, they're all adults.

But the big difference between when I was 15 and nowadays is that I don't play on pvp and minigames servers, I only play technical survival (redstone/farming) on both single player and multiplayer, I'm also working on my own mod, so you can say I moved to a more mature way of playing.
(here's the link to my blog post about my upcoming mod: Minecraft 2.0, it's also a contest blog so support ^_^ )

btw pm me if you want to join my friend's survival server

Oh God. Thanks for sharing your ages everyone. It really helped me to find out that I AM LITERALLY DOUBLE THE AGE of most people on here...

The first computer games I played looked like this.
Paperboy

And I still play Minecraft. When I get too old, I'll let you know.

I LOVED PAPERBOY. That probably dated me, but whatever. I'm closer to 40 than 30 myself but I still play.

Not Paperboy. Minecraft. I haven't played Paperboy since the 90s.

Of course not. Sure, Minecraft is perfectly kid friendly but if you think about, there's a lot of non-kid friendly games that have an abundance of them.

So there's no need to feel awkward about playing it. It's nostalgia, anyways.

Honestly, I don't think anybody is too old for Minecraft. If people like DanTDM play this game and enjoy it (he's like in his early 20s) then anybody can play it and enjoy.

I'm kind of in the same boat as you Snowy_Parker, I came back to the community 6 months ago after taking a 2.5-3 year break. I'm now 17 and many of the server communities just don't suit me. My answer was to create my own server community, one which would hopefully attract some older players, which it actually has. Ultimately I have found there's a lot of players out there my age, you just have to find them, hope this helped
