Re: Any older gamers out there?

44 in 14 a true child of the golden age of gaming.

 

I keep a couple of my old friends in my office to remind me of the smell of quarters and the sounds of a full arcade.

44 here, still a player but I'm much more picky in what I play now. In my younger days I would play anything that could be played, action, adventure, sports, you name it. Nowadays I mostly only play tactical (like Heroes of Might & Magic, Eador, etc), grand strategy (not real time) like Crusader Kings 2 and Europa Universalis 4, and turn based or pausable RPGs (not action RPGs) like the Persona and Mana Khemia series (unfortunately this type of RPGs seem to have been relegated by console game developers, but they are resurging in the PC with kickstarter initiatives).

38 here, been gaming since the Atari 2600. Still have all my old systems, even though the wife keeps asking me to sell them. Too many memories to get rid of them.

Rainbow Moon is a good one, it justified the expense of my PS3 more than anything else I've played. Sequel coming, too.

36- Born the same year the 2600 was released. It was my first gaming experience... Just a joystick and a button.

Didn't really go crazy until I was about 10. I would save my lunch money, collect bottles for the deposit, search all couch cushions and scrape together anything I could to stop at a little carpet store on my way home from school. Which (for some reason) had a Double Dragon machine in the lobby... I think I kept that place in business with my change.
