wave To Glynn, Plilipp,Ditlihi, Teresa, and anyone else out there(besides me) who's 60 and over: Wow, I didn't realise there are so many of you and even more over 50 playing computer games!

I don't know anyone personally who plays. The people my age all think computer games are "all violence" , "a waste of time", "crazy", or "why do they play them anyway" or any other negative remark they can come up with. Needless to say, when I'm around that talk, I keep my mouth shut and think how boring life would be without this great entertainment.

I also am a reader and a traveller, maybe that has something to do with it-many do not do these things either.

Hey Bigmamma wave Do as I do and make the case that computer games sharpen your obversation and concentration skills and they can also help create a closer relationship with ones children/grandchildren . By the way , I just BAAGed NOLF2(no one lives forever 2 ) , can't wait to play it. happydance bravo lol

How about a great grandma who's an adventure game junkie? I don't like the action games either because my reflexes ain't what they used to be. I have about six games going right now and have ordered several more, plus I have completed probably two dozen games. Guess I should do something more constructive with my "remaining" years but these games keep my mind active.

Hi Robert this is a good question and its very interesting hearing which games people like to play.
I am female and just turned 30. I used to play computer games as a kid but stopped for years. It was was Myst that got me back into playing games and now I play adventure games the most. But I also love Silent Hill and Tomb Raider and I was addicted to the Zelda games both on the Nintendo 64 and when it was on the gameboy. Apart from playing Half-Life with a load of people online, I am not that keen on shooters or racing games (have never been much good with a gun). But I love the Sims! smile

I'm 35 & was strictly adventure until this past year. I, too, was one of the Boomers enchanted by Divine Divinity & now I can't get enough of RPG's. I generally play one RPG & one adventure at the same time, so if combat gets too hairy I can relax & twitch my brain instead of my fingers. RPG's last sooooo much longer so I usually go through 3 adventures in the course of one RPG.

I don't usually like shooters or action/adventures unless there's a god mode. But I have been enjoying Beyond Good & Evil, which is a very odd, but fun, game. Loved Outcast. Can't seem to get the hang of surviving in NOLF, but I've got death down pat! wink I don't play anything that requires jumping. I'm a total klutz & spaz out every time.

laugh Love, Jen laugh

I'll be 74 this month, and the only non-adventure game that I care for is Diablo/Hellfire. My son got me started on that even before I discovered adventure games, and I still enjoy popping in the CD and play one of the characters I've created. But I don't play on-line (got tired of those foul mouthed little twerps propositioning me lol ) and I didn't really care for Diablo 2, because of the saving system...

Hi Sandy
Yes come try DD, we'd love it and you'd be a riot--I can just imagine all the trouble you could get into--and AND there are BIG hairy spiders and some pinchy bugs too. Oh and bees and wasps. Yicks I didn't realize when I started to tease you, that there were ALL your scary bugs in the game. They are a tiny part of it though.

I'm 51 and when I joined Gameboomers (not long ago) I was a strict adventure game player and then came the fall...and now I keep a very open mind about all kinds of games. (Now my favorite game would be Real Myst with Loot! whistle )

Hi Sandy.........DD is totally addictive and Ana should be ashamed of herself for getting someone else hooked on it.
I'll admit it, it's totally immersive and I'm loving it. I reek at it but it's fun. I'm warning you though, save your games and save often! Also, set a timer so that you will leave the game in a reasonable period of time to take care of other matters..........like child care, meal preparation. bill paying, just the little things that must be done. It looks like it could take a looooong time to play this one.
Oh, warning....don't let your child be in the room while you're playing if he's squeamish.
Ana strikes again!

Hi dithika and welcome to the forums welcome

dithika writes , quote: "I am female and just turned 30. I used to play computer games as a kid but stopped for years. It was Myst that got me back into playing games and now I play adventure games the most."

I'm glad to see younger people like yourself playing adventure games and you can always count on other members of Gameboomers to help if you get stuck or need tech-support with a game. wave

To jen in chgo : I've seen alot of posts about Divine Divinity and have decided I'm gonna have to get it thumbsup I played Baulders Gate a while back and had a lot of fun with it. DD looks like a similar type game , but with more depth .

I thought Beyond Good and Evil was a wonderful game . The last boss fight is pretty hard , but very rewarding when you beat him . happydance

I didn't really get into BG&E. I found it too bizare and there was no real intro as to who you were and what your supose to do at the begining. Tho i kept playing for abit longer i just gave up. This is on the xbox i tryed it on as i recommended it to my bro as i thought it would be a sorta adventure game but in 3d and a bit of action but its mainly action/platform sorta game. Big let down from what i thought it would be like.

DD looks ok but theres nothing thats gona beat Kotor i think for a RPG.

Hey Skeeter wave

My problem with "Knights of the Old Republic" is the turn-based combat. I'd rather do my own fighting .

I had the same problem at the beginning of BGAE . They should have laid out the objectives more clearly. But after a while I got the hang of it . smile
