THIS IS AWESOME!!! I thought I was a rarity, sitting around playing adventure games at the "ripe ol' age" of 39! You all have convinced me that I will NEVER give up my gaming! :-)

I knew I liked this group for more than one reason. It's very diverse, yes....but....I also feel I'm in a group of my peers. I love it! I love it! I love it!

My 43-year-old best friend thinks I'm WHACKO to be playing games at my age. Personally, I think SHE needs to loosen up and enjoy life!

This would be a good thread for game developers to read. Maybe then they'd realize that they DO have an adventure market, and that it's NOT 15-year-old boys, for the most part!

Hi,
I am 71 years young and really enjoy Adventure games. i have even played a few "kill-em-deads", but they are not my favorites. I just wish there were more "true" adventure games.

Hello to all happydance happydance . Don't get me wrong, I love them dearly, but a break is really nice.

I am currently playing Watchmaker and because of all the good remarks from some of you at Gamerboomers on Dark Fall, I have ordered it and it should be in my mailbox by tomorrow.

You know, Girlgeek brings up an interesting point. Her friend thinks she is whacko for playing adventure games, like, "At your age, REALLY NOW!"
I don't know anyone who plays cdrom games in my social group, extended or close. When people ask me what I do with my time and I mention my addiction to playing these games, they look at me like I'm from another planet and change the subject.
Glad to know I am part of this very supportive group. You go GAMERS!!!!!! wave wave wave:

As a relative 'newbie' to posting on gameboomers I thought I'd mention that 1951 was a good year. I play all the adventure games with my 10 year old son by my side so that I may benefit from his insight. He is almost as good as a WT.

Good deal MacDee - someone ought to send this thread off to the game publishers (just so they could figure out once and for all who's footing the bill).

For the record - I'm definitely not the oldest, and I'm sure not the youngest - but, I'm holding at 48 (for another month anyway).

I'm 49 and I too play many of my games with my 8 year old son whose great intuitive powers has saved me lots of stumbling around!

48 years young here and my husband is a fan too, at 46. Love crosswords and stuff and so when I discovered adventure games, became a BAAG lady. This website is the best! Is it from watching too many Jon Hall movies on TV when I was a child?

Hey all,

33 here, but I started adventuring at an early age on my VIC-20 with "The Count" and moved on through just about every game that Infocom ever put out (yes I was a public-schooler playing text adventures while everyone else was playing with their Atari's and Intellivision's). Of course I evened out the field by playing football for a number of years (so actually my knees may be in their early 40s, gosh knows they feel like it somedays).

I may be a youngun but I know I've turned for help to a number of the more 'seasoned' adventurers out there so it's obvious to me that no matter what our ages, adventure gaming is far from dead and, sooner or later, the males 16-25 that haunt the shops will figure it out.

Besides, how many 60 yr olds will buy Unreal Duke Nukem Quake vs. Predator XVIII?
