  1. After browsing through the community and forum topics for a while I realized (somewhat to my surprise) that there seem to be more (๐Ÿค” how do I say this without offending anyone) โ€œolder gamersโ€ on PSNP than I thought. The topic โ€œHow long have you been playing video games?โ€ started by @ShadowStar83x hardens my suspicion even more ๐Ÿ˜‰ To make a long story short: This is reason enough for me to start this poll as I think it would be really interesting to see the rough age distribution here on PSNP so... How old are you? The poll options are pretty spacious on purpose as I do not want to force you to give away too much personal detail if you do not want to (but of course you can let us know your real age which would even be more interesting). Voter names are also not made public. Further itโ€™s important for me to say that itโ€™s not my intention to derive anything from this poll. No prejudices, no discrimination, no nothing. Your age DOES NOT MATTER as we are all just gamers and trophy hunters sharing a fantastic interest. So please do not participate if you feel offended by any means. As I started this topic Iโ€™ll start of ๐Ÿ˜ I am in my best years right now and 37. Finally back into gaming again. Though I do not have as much time for it at the moment as Iโ€™d like to have. ๐Ÿ˜œ
  2. ๐Ÿ˜ My words! My hair is already seriously turning white on the right side of my head. Almost canโ€™t wait for it to turn white completely. Itโ€™s all about the style ๐Ÿ˜€
  3. It was clearly not my intention to start this kind of debate with this topic. ๐Ÿ˜… Suggestion to make a minor change as someone might feel offended was made - word exchanged, all fine Iโ€™d say. ๐Ÿ™‚ Gamers stay young all their lives to some extent anyway. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  4. A coffee machine that produces unspeakably disgusting coffee ๐Ÿ˜–
  5. Thanks for the suggestion. Just updated the original post. ๐Ÿ™‚ I got my first console (NES) when I was 7 and my first game was Jackie Chanโ€™s Action Kung Fu. Getting nostalgic while writing these lines.
  6. Hate that to! If I wanted hours of cinematics Iโ€™d stream a movie. Games I like to play, not watch. Worst thing is if there is no skip option available. That should be forbidden.
  7. Uh, has been silent here for a while, but there are still great game trailers out there ๐Ÿ˜€ Castlevania Lords of Shadows 2 is just epic
  8. Might not be exactly what you are looking for as it s a 2D Beat โ€˜Em Up but totally worth giving a try at least: Bud Spencer & Terence Hill: Slaps and Beans
  9. Both awards go to: Velvet Assassin (Xbox 360) - this was one of the worst games I have ever seen. In all aspects, be it graphics, story, gameplay, everything seems to be wrong with this game to me personally. But thanks to my trophy-hunting genes I had to complete it nonetheless. Wondering if this fact should make me rethink my gaming habits ๐Ÿ˜
  10. Hollow Knight
  11. Oh my gosh! Totally forgot the game "Bud Spencer & Terence Hill - Slaps And Beans"! This is a MUST ๐Ÿ˜€! It's a 2D Arcade Beat 'Em Up game.
  12. Oh dear, from my own experience I can tell that your play-style is probably a LOT better than mine as what I currently do (or did - as I stopped that about 2 weeks ago) is playing like 4-5 games at the same time. My problem is that I do not really get into a game because as soon as there is the smallest annoyance, I switch over to another game and so on and so forth. Once I play a game for a while, I typically tend to forget the controls, combos etc. for another game I played before (probably comes with my age ๐Ÿ˜‚). When you are already halfway through a game and stop playing it for about a month or so it is damn hard to get back into it. So I started to do what you are currently doing. Letting my backlog be my backlog and grow and instead focus on ONE game at a time and enjoy it. The 100% thing is another topic though where I cannot give much good advice except to not care about that too much (had the exact same problem a few years ago - my problem was solved the day my first kid was born ๐Ÿ˜…).
  13. What about the "Lego" games? Single screen as long as both players are close together and changes to kind of a split-screen when you are further apart. Do not know if trophies are awarded for both players though. ๐Ÿค”
  14. Which never has
  15. @Celestial_Lily, thanks for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚
  16. Yes. Have you ever heard the sound of a hedgehog having a snack?
  17. Broke my left shoulder in a bike accident ๐Ÿค•
  18. Oh, that was Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu on the NES ๐Ÿ˜€
  19. My 2 favorites: "Donโ€™t practice until you get it right. Practice until you canโ€™t get it wrong." โ€“ Unknown "If You're Going Through Hell, Keep Going" - Winston Churchill
  20. Fully agree ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the design of the site and so far only met very nice and funny people here.
  21. QTEs in some games. Donโ€™t get me wrong, QTEs are not a problem in general and 1 or 2 chained after another is all fine. But there are games out there which are driving me nuts. Knightโ€™s Contract on the Xbox360 for example. Anyone beat the final boss in the hardest mode? Itโ€™s 7 QTEs in a row! 7! And the response window is just insanely small. One miss and you have to start all over again.
  22. Yes I did. Back in the days when Warcraft I and II were still a thing ๐Ÿ˜… Totally ruined my experience!
  23. I donโ€™t know why, but sports games do not give me any pleasure at all.
  24. Almost exactly 30 years now ๐Ÿ˜— My first game was Jackie Chanโ€™s Action Kung Fu on the NES.
  25. There are too many awesome songs and genres available ๐Ÿ˜€
