Wow what a long post. OK I am 44, very soon to be 45. I have two children 8 and 9 who keep me very young, but also very tired. I only got into gaming 11 months ago, it's never too late to start wink wave

I think it's a big misunderstanding that gamers are just a bunch of teenage kids with nothing else than "the finger on the trigger or on the joystick".

Don't forget the many of these "oldies" (including me) learned to play and love games in the late 70ties with the good old Sierra games such as King's Quest and all the other Quests...

It's been a long time since I have visited the GameBoomers site...I've just been overwhelmed. But I decided I needed a fix.

Anyway, I have not read the 18 pages of responses (Yikes!) so I don't know how your question was received, Dee, but I am 51 and will be 52 in April!

You are not alone!

How old am I?You can check it out in my profile but incidentally I don't think age matters as much as youngsters would have you believe.After all the definition of middle age is 20 years older than you are. laugh
I just hate ageism though.Finally the British Government are considering removing the mandatory retirement age.About time too.Keeping the mind sharp is what it is all about.

Incog.Hoping we all have a happy games playing 2003.
