Hey Dee, thanks for posting this question. So many people who I've never seen post before have added their postings to this one. It's nice to see new faces smile

Boy, I go off line for a couple of days, and when I come back, you have this really fun thread going. So I have to join in too - I'm 61, and my only regret is that I didn't start computering and gaming long ago.

P.S. The reason I was off line is I was moving into my new condo where I have a real "computer room", with lots of space for games, WT's, manuals, etc. Of course, these things are strewn all over the floor right now, cause I was so anxious to get my computer up and running again. Glad to be back! happydance

I have been away working and look what I find when I come back. True confession time.
I have been 39 for such a long time that I cannot remember any other number (65 sound familiar). <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />
I have been tinkering with computers since the first main frames got on line long before the web was ever thought of. I have read every SF that was ever published. I would not give up my computer for anything. I will never get old and want to live for ever just to see what new thing are coming around the corner. And let me say this, I have never meat a GameBoomer who was old what ever his/her age was. wink

Hi All!
I agree with Laura... Good Merlot does wonders for longevity! 1954 was a GREAT year! wave

Hi All! What a great topic! I have just turned 60, (yikes), some days feel and look like I am 40, and some days feel and look like 70!
This IS a great site, very friendly and helpful.
My husband and I spent the afternoon going to EB, Best Buy, and Circuit City. NO adventure games at all. What gives?

I'll be 54 on July 7th. But when I'm playing games, I am whatever age the main character is! wink

Just think what games we might get written especially for us:-

The Big Grey Adventure
Alice through the Magnifying Glass
The Departure (sorry!)
Gallstone Chronicles
Blue Rinse
Broken Hip 1 (and 2)

Second thoughts, don't think we should tell the
developers how old we are!

There are days I really can't remember how old I am. Have to constantly do the math - just like right now <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" /> - am 54 til September!

Randy at JA+ has done a couple of these demographic surveys of adventure gamers at his site over the years. I know that he's been trying to forward this information on to designers and developers over the years, but I don't think he's had many takers. If anyone remembers more, feel free to jump in.

I may be mistaken, but I remember that the results did indeed show that adventure gamers were by in large older, better educated and made more money that your average gamer (and half were women).

As a 33-year old, may I just say that you people make feel very young. Thanks! laugh laugh laugh
