    Out of curiosity, how old is the average iPhone / iPod Touch gamer? I ask this because I was thinking the age, on average, is a bit older than the average console gamer. I figured this is a good way to find out. ;)

    Wow, more 14 years than I expected

    but I don't personally know any 14 year olds I would trust with metal scissors let alone an iphone.

    There was a great thread on this some time ago. I know it wouldn't come up in a search as the search can't be on 3 letter words. So I found it for you. It's very interesting and worth a read through:

    [EDIT: it says a lot about how busy this forum gets when the 12th Dec 2008 is "some time ago"!]

    You'd be surprised. Some of us teens (I myself being 15) aren't just your usual smart ass kid.

    Oh Nice, I'll definitely check that out. Hopefully this thread (with a Poll) gives the lazy people a better idea though. :)

    Well I noticed my 4 & 5 year old nieces really enjoy miphone (cpywrtn)
    They seem to navigate through the device better than most adults, first hand.

    But I wouldn't trust them to just take it whenever they want, they don't have enough respect for the device...it's just a thing to them.

    Thats why it boggles me because youngsters tend to be pretty careless

    At least thats what I thought when I found an itouch in a class room in a school I worked at. It was just sitting on the floor after class let out....we knew who's it was and also knew he didn't want to ask about it because his mom would have spanked that a$$.

    No way you get the copyright on that, I've been using that reference for a year now.

    Well I got my first one from my grandparents when I was fourteen. My new one took a couple years of savings out of my wallet.

    see the thing about this poll is that i think its rele only showing us how old people on touch arcade are rather than how old iphone gamers are. Cuz based on the usual top couple apps (ifart, crash cart...) i think the age of iphone gamers is a lot younger than a lot of u guys think. I mean in the big sceme of things i think that you 25+ers are in the minority rather than leading the poll.
