Hey Witchen, nice of you to chime in but unless I missed it in all the verbiage I did not notice that you fessed up as to YOUR age!! Hmmm. I'm 55 and have been a computer game addict since the mid'80's on my Radio Shack Color Computer (I also ran my business on it then). BTW, anyone remember the Atari game "Adventure"? I've also been doing and teaching martial arts for 20+ years. However, now, rather than keeping me young, it's starting to remind me that I'm getting old! Oy! I turned my 78 year old father onto Amerzone and then Road to India. He had to play with the WTs (okay, so did I, once in a while, well, sometimes, okay, OFTEN) but he really enjoyed them.

Wow! How did I ever miss 'this' thread!???? Oh, I guess it was probably the word 'nosy' and I'm not, so I just bypassed it. LOL! DOHHHHHHH! What a great subject!!!

I'm 62, ...going on 35! Life got sooooooo much better at that age that I never got past it emotionally!

There's a LOT to be said for being older! ...for one thing, no one asks me any of those dumb questions any more... like 'when are you going to get married' or 'what do you want to be when you grow up'! hahaha By this age, all the pressure is off! Everyone KNOWS that I'm not going to be a rocket scientist! ROFL!

I LOVE this age! ...and this group! I thought that *I* was probably the oldest one here! Hoorayyyyyyy for Boomers!

Now 62, had my birthday last Wednesday. Another benefit is that if you have a bit(!) of a tummy, no one asks when the baby is due.

Hey Howard the Doc--

I remember the Atari game Adventure!!!!! I totally loved that game! I still have it, but [blip]--I haven't played my Atari in years! That was such a fun game, even though it got rather predictable after awhile. Hmmm...could I classify that as my first adventure game?

Dawn (thinking of digging out her Atari.....)

Boy am I glad I ran into this, I am 54 and completely hooked on adventure games. I thought I was alone all my friends think I am nuts, there are even some people I don't tell. I got started by getting a game for my grand kids, but now I don't even let them use my computer. I purchased a new computer because my old one wouldn't play MYST. Now I have a difrent problem the new computer I have has windows XP and I can't play some of my old games. Any sugestions?

Bree, there have been some good posts here about Windows XP and old games. Some of them will run in the XP compatibility mode and some will not. If you post a question about this over in the technical support section, I am sure you will get a lot of advice and help. smile
