Hi, just a general question.
What exactly is the average age group of the players of Minecraft, and which audience age group is the game actually directed towards?
Thanks in advance.
The actual age range would be something like 5+
I've seen people that are about 50 who still play this game, i don't really think its focussed on anything

someone joined the forums that is 55 and playing minecraft
I'm 32 and started playing when I was 31. Games like this really have no certain age group, more like directed towards creative people. This and other games is a great way to wind down after a hard day in the military directing air traffic, or any job really.
Well my 4 year old brother plays minecraft so there u go
Oh yes. This post/comment is amazing!
I would say that there is no target audience age, the game is meant for anyone. But I think the majority of players are in the mid-teens, of course there are some very young, or slightly older players, but not as many.

It said on the box; "Suitable for all children age from 1 to 100 year old's."
^ there u go
I'll be back here when I am 101 and still playing :P
I'm 41 years old, I love minecraft Exploring is one of my favorite things to do I also like helping and meeting other poeple.
We need to add a Poll to see what the Age ranges are.
yay. i feel better now that i'm not the only 'old man' playing on the smp server.
I love minecraft, I'm 37 and growing more obsesive on a weekly basis. Minecraft is basically Lego for grown ups.
No. It's better than lego. Doesn't take up as much space for a start!
As for age, there is no limits/restrictions for who plays minecraft. Me, I fit in the supposed average age "Mid-teens"
You see before you, something you have not encountered before...
My dad plays minecraft off and on, and he's 56 lol
I was ,maybe, 6, when I started playing, and I still do. xD Im now 9, and I <3 minecraft! I really don't think mojang made an age group.
Be careful, I bite!
i'm about 17 and was first interested/heard of it at ....14ish?
yeah a game like minecraft lacks any age group
i also hearing of older Runscape players......
stupid quote goes here.
From my experiences most players are like 8.
Personally, I am 3.
The very best Minecraft server host.
isn't that true of most games though. I would swear from just looking at the chat screen whenever i played warcraft, that the average age had to be preschool. lol
Minecraft is the type of game that's geared towards anyone regardless of age, race and profession. All they need to do is enjoy the sandbox genre of gaming and they're set to have a blast :)
Gonna have to agree with Skyara here.
This game can be for all age groups from young to old. One such evidence is the Standard Galactic Alphabet that is used when Enchanting items actually comes from a game called Commander Keen that was released in the 1990's. I'm not saying only they would recognise it but it is a cool thing to add as a nod to older gamers.
Im 22 and play this game. I was sitting at a baseball game and these 2 kids, literally kids in the seats in front of me had IPhones, and their screensaver was a creeper from Minecraft so
Im not sure of the "Majority" of the minecraft audience, like the one guy said maybe you should create a Poll at the top, and if there is no edit button we should make another post with a Poll.. maybe something like:
I am "3 - 7 Years old."
I am " 8 - 12 Years Old.
I am " 13-17 Years Old."
I am "18 - 21 Years Old.
You can make the ranges anything you want but just trying to give you an idea
15 ppls :D
Hi, How are ya?
I'm 30ish and play ;) Its too much fun and all my friends that game enjoy it also. Age is just a number. I've made some really great friends that are different ages because of it.
I love Minecraft! Check out my creations Youtube: Rockbandprincess1
I'm 17 + 2
Minecraft is a great game to chill on (:
i think mostly 18 + ppl plays Minecraft
I am 16 and started playing when i was 14 i know someone younger that plays i know people older that plays
I think Mojangs prime audience is Jr. High cause, no offense to anyone, they have the most free time and will get addicted easiest....
I speak from experience...

The only thing that could make you want to be at least a pre-teen before playing would be on multiplayer, some servers allow less-than kind language to be typed
