Can you see yourself playing 40k in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?

I was just thinking about how long I've been playing 40k (Since the early 1990's), and was trying to picture myself playing in 5, 10, or even twenty more years. I KNOW 40k-ers who are in their fifties, but I don't know if I can see myself playing at that age...

So what about you folks? Can you see yourselves pushing around Space Marines in 5 years? 10 years? Or even 20 years from now? Can you see yourself teaching your grandkids how to play? Or do you think you will have moved onto other things by then? And why do you think you'll still be playing years from now?

Now THAT's more of the kind of answer I was looking for, not the quick, "gotta get my post count up" ones...

Come on, guys, think about it. Can you REALLY see yourselves playing in your 50s? In your 60s?

I'd LIKE to think I'll be playing 40k at that age, but with all my current health issues I probably won't live that long. Maybe somebody will invent a real Golden Throne?

Yes, yes and yes... I am board game addicted, and 40k is perfect for me... I cant just leave this hobby... I have sworn an oath to protect the Imperium of Man and to serve the Emperor, so there is no way out...

Nice response, here's mine.
Must get my thread count up by asking dumb ass questions.
then get my post count up by being a sarcastic cunt towards the people who reply.

you didn't say give a reason why we will still be playing.
so a simple yes or no will service.

you don't have to be young to play wargames it's not like our hobby is skydiving or boxing.

we paint and play with little soldiers, so why would we not be doing it in 40 years for that matter.
