66 here (birthday in Feb.) - glad to be a member of this wonderful group - I do believe we have more in the 20-30 group but I could be wrong. It's funny how one gets an impression of a players age and gender from their 'handle' and their posts.....doesn't mean you get it right but a mental picture forms in ones head and its a surprise if/when you find out you were way off base...
Love, Betty Lou laugh

Hey everyone,

54 here, and in good company. Someone earlier on mentioned how gaming bridges the generation gap, and I find that to be true usually whenever I go to my local EB or GameStop store. Recently I was in there, heard a man looking for a game "like Myst" and so showed him all the cool adventure games on the shelves. He ended up walking out with three of them, and the young male clerk thanked me for my help. BTW, he was very knowledgeable about adventure games, and we had a fun discussion about them. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

I, too, think that a poll would be interesting, although we may not have the numbers here to impress a publisher. Worth a try, though, TSS! And you bring up a good question about how many of us would be willing (or able) to shell out $50 to spend on a game. Well, I just heard that the average yearly income of a college graduate in this country is $75,000!! eek I think I need to move to Mexico, in that case lol My limit on a game price is way under $50...

"Do you think one of the reasons that gameboomers works so well is the heavy influence of older people?"

Mornin' Everyone. Just like a couple of folks above I will be 66 next month. Even though the old bod doesn't respond as well anymore the mind sure does. That's probably why I enjoy adventure games so much. I'll be damned if I'm going to just lie back and let old age be an excuse for not having some fun out of life. You all are wonderful. Happy Gaming, Claudette

65 and single, planning on staying that way. (After 4 failed marriages I figure I must not be the marrying kind).

Got hooked on Sierra games in the early 80s and been gaming ever since.

Plan on playing music and gaming as long as I can lift a sax and move a mouse.

TSS 'bite your tongue'. smile Have been a sci-fi reader since I was ten. Liked playing The Dig and The Ward. Embarassed to admit used the walkthru so could find out what happened next quicker on Ward. Also like seeing what other places look like and 'visiting' historical settings and times. Particularly liked Beyond Atlantis and The Messenger. Don't leave out mysteries like Laura Bow and Amerzone and book related games. Can leave out all the spooky scary ones though, revenge themes, and time sequences. blush wink <img border="0" alt="[winky]" title="" src="graemlins/winky.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="pacify" title="" src="graemlins/pacify.gif" />

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!

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?
