Love your user name. 

 

Probably 85 or 86 for me with the release of the NES. So, a little over 30 years now.

.I'm probably one of the eldest statesmen here on PSNP. Perhaps they should gather us up, create the Council of Elders and we can hold the youngsters accountable to properly carry on the gaming traditions.

I wonder what the age spread is here on psnprofiles. Someone should do a survey or something.

1991 - NES Playing the Marios on my cousin's system. I also remember playing those Nintendo electronic card thingies: people jumping out of a building onto trampolines and the dodging car one.

After a certain point....some of us just stopped counting...the level up counter stops increasing...whatever..

 

However, there are some members that are sensitive about their age/birthday and don't include that in their profile...so any survey won't be 100% accurate...

I started in 1983 or 84 when my parents got an Atari 2600 from someone. So that would make me 5 or 6 (6 or 7 if it was at the end of the year, downside of late birthdays). Played the heck out of it day in and day out, before school and after school. I had to leave it behind in 1987 when my mom packed my sister and myself back to Montana. We got a NES for Christmas of '87 and several of my new friends also got/had one and the rest is history.

 

I guess that makes 34-35 years of gaming for me now.

Since I was a kid, early 80's with the original Atari 2600. Been playing one system or another ever since.

At least 19-20 years, possibly a little over that. My memories are vague pre-dating Spyro the Dragon

At least 25 years, since 1992. But I first grabbed a console in around late 1990. My gaming time was very limited, so I barely had a chance to play games at all.

 

I still played the NES console in the early 1990s. My sister who is 36 years old played Nintendo before I did, so we basically just shared the console. Then in December of 1992 we got a Sega Genesis for Christmas with Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is probably 2nd on my list of all time most nostalgic video games. First is Super Mario Bros 3 for the NES. Wonderful, wonderful games. So happy I spent my childhood in the 1990s rather than today.

For my 5th birthday, my grandpa and uncle gifted me their old Sears VCS. That was December of 1979. Prior, my parents had a standalone Pong machine, though I had no easy access to it (being that I was under 5, and it was kept in the attic unless we all played).

 

Games were much easier to play back then. The joystik on the Atari had one button and a stick, which made it perfectly easy for a 5-year-old to play it. The Pong game we had used paddle controllers, which again are easy for a kid. There's no way a 5-year-old today is making much headway with the Dualshock.

 

I find more kids to be playing mobile games, or at least playing on a Nintendo console.

 

I can't see a kid getting through Batman: Arkham Knight that uses all the controls of the Dualshock. Plus with there generally being two - three different moves for one button in given situations in that game, that's too much for a kid to understand.

I've been gaming for 29 years, since 1988.

I started my gaming life as I currently do; split between the Past, Present and Computure. I had a hand-me-down Atari 2600, a brandnew Nintendo, and played games on my moms Commodore 64.

 

I started gaming on a 13" Black & White tv thru UHF (didn't even have coaxial yet). A tv sort of like this one, only instead of white and black, mine was woodgrain with silver trim. But looked very similar to this one.

Around 25 years or so, I guess. First console I owned myself was the SNES, before that I somehow already was a PC gamer as my father had a computer on which I could play some games. 

 

I remember Block Out, Dinosaur Predators, and Tom & Jerry Cat-astrophe.

It's hard to say for sure, but I think it was the year 2000, or close to that at least. So about 17 years in total. The first games I remember playing are Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon on my PS1. :)
