Games Domain has got absorbed into Yahoo. Sigh a lot of links I had are now history.

Yahoo seems full of yahoos - they state that computer games are youth's unofficial pastime and think no-one over 35 will have heard of them.

What if we STARTED playing before 35? Are we allowed to keep playing or do we have to stop?

I sure am glad they didn't mention seniors, or I would have been in trouble, whew! I guess it's just you 35 year old's, who should worry. LOU

Hey Tigger, you and I were on the same wave length - I hopped over there and read it, and immediately sent them a not-so-happy message. With many exceptions of course, I think almost all of the Adventure Game community exceeds their age limit.

I also sent them a letter. I started playing PC Games well over 35 and have spent more years in computer gaming then most of them have out of diapers.
