Any Older Gamers Here?

136 posts in this topic

I'll be 42 in September and age isn't gonna stop me from playing, even if it's not as often as I would like. Definitely getting a ps4 when I've cleared my large backlog of ps3 games.

Just to let you know I won't be adding anybody who has a higher trophy score than my own.

Savoring what little I have left of 29 over here. Without the 2 in front, I won't have an excuse for not acting my age anymore :( . Anyways, I've been gaming since my 4th birthday when a nice neighbor of ours gave me an Atari 7800.

Bloody hell, that list brings back some memories! I still think it's mad that they got Patrick Moore as the Gamesmaster!

Kids today are so lucky, I remember getting home from school and putting a game to load in my Commodore C64, an hour later I would be lucky if it had completed loading. 

 

I dunno about that. I kind of missed the days of the simplicity of just popping a game in and playing. Plus, history seems to be repeating itself with digital games based on what you've described there, lol

Almost 38. My memories of gaming date back to times of Atari 2600, but the 1st console i bought was PS3 hahaha. I'm from the couch-coop generation, always hanging around at my friends' houses or relatives (siblings). I guess because of that i was never in a hurry about to buy a gaming device. Time passes and responsibilities and people moving, it cannot stay the same. But the hobby survived and here i am, still gaming. :)

I'm 28 so I'll be getting there soon. I find I am trying to find time to game but work takes over most of the time. I remember the days of coming home from school and just gaming for hours on end but I have too many responsibilities these days. I doubt I will stop gaming any time soon regardless of age.

Just out of curiosity-- why?

As to the original topic, yes. I'm in my early forties. The closest thing I had to a console as a kid was a Game & Watch Donkey Kong game. Of course the first thing I did when I was old enough to leave home was save up to buy a Sega Genesis. I've only grown more passionate about video games as I've gotten older. Maybe it's because they've become more immersive and diverse as technology has improved. Or maybe it is I that have improved as time has passed. :P

Yup, I'll be 39 in a few months.

 

I'm somewhat of a trophy hunter, and I've been playing since the NES (which came out when I was 10).  My parents never bought me any earlier systems, except for that tiny arcade-machine-looking Donkey Kong, as well as a few game-and-watch portables.

 

I've had NES, Sega Master System, SNES, and 4 different Nintendo Game Boys (they kept breaking).  Then my brother got Sega Genesis, Sega Game Gear, Atari Jaguar, PS1, and Nintendo Virtual Boy.  Then, I got a Gamecube, PS2, Xbox, PSP, Xbox 360.

 

Now, I only have a PS Vita, and frankly, I think it's the best system around.  You triple AAA lovers be damned!  Give me innovative indies over $60 same-old-shiz garbage anyday!

 

Aaaaannnnnd... I'm spent!

36 year old gamer here. I started off pretty casual in the Atari 2600 days (played at a friend's house, but never owned one). I morphed into addicted with the release of the NES and was back to casual by the time the N64 was coming out. I got hooked again hard toward the end of the PS2 Era and have been hunting trophies on the PS3 since 2010. I even dabbled in PC gaming while in college, but i'm a true blue console gamer now. I own a PS3 with a huge backlog, Vita, and a PS4. I still own a NES and N64, but rarely fire them up anymore.
