Why is it all I seem to find and play with are 15 year olds and younger? Where the hell are the players over 20 years old? Not that I have an issue with the younger generation but where the hell are the parents and why the hell are they playing this game?

Its summer time and their parents are working...
Also an Xbox is cheaper than a babysitter.

in all fairness i started playing GTA when i was 11 but to be honest i dont know how parent let their kids play this type of game online.

i let my 2 kids(11 & 5) play in sp but not online, for 2 things, first i dont want them to get frustrated/stressed by all the griefin and 2 because they would just mess up my stats!

Considering I heard a sexist asshole in this one session bullying this one kid...

 

 

Nah, the oldies can go f*ck themselves. I mean, the squeakers are bad too, but no matter what it seems everyone is an asshole in game chat. I, personally, prefer the squeakers since they still have time to mature.

E: Who's the necromancer in this sweet month of 2015? Anywho, before anyone thinks I meant all "oldies", nope. Just the ones who act like a dick when they know better.

I'm 30. I don't cuss because of my beliefs, and I don't randomly kill. In game I live by if you start it, I'll finish it.

They are playing other things, maybe or working or whatever. And you're saying that you don't have a problem with kids playing it but you're wondering "why the hell they're playing this game". Boy, let them be. If you don't like this you can always play in invite only sessions or do other stuff.

On PS3, they're in my crew. We have a few young whippersnappers but the majority are 21 and over. Hell, I'm damn near 40,but act like I'm 12 sometimes.

I think a lot of adults are just busy with life and have moved on to a different game when they find the time to play something. A lot of Millennials (people in the age range that you are looking for) are having kids right now, and that severely cuts out on your gaming time - it sure has cut mine down. (I am 30 - which is an old fart on this game). On top of that, GTA:O really hasn't seen new game play in a minute, so it is stale for a lot of folks. I find a lot of older people playing late as sh*t at night, when I mainly play. Most reasons are work, GF/wife and/or kid demanding the daylight hours. I think that more older folks will return when new game play is added (heists, new map, ect).

I started playing GTA when I was 12 and honestly I think many people did too, It's hypocritical to call out squeakers when you did the same. I seen older adults act immature so it's not just them.

I turned 50 in June, and I'm in Los Santos on a daily basis making money and making trouble with my crew members comprised of like-minded grumpy old farts. We like to get together and talk about Matlock episodes while we grind out missions.

They're not playing, they know better.

 

I do actually still play occasionally, but I refuse to play in public servers.
