im interested in what group of people hangs out on this forum. like, what is your age and your experience with gaming. nothing too personal, just that basic information if possible. since i have been hanging on here i get the idea its mostly teens. which is fine, but its not really my scene, anymore. im curious to know what your age and your experience with gaming. do you go any further in time before 00s??

Haha, many of us are way older actually, it's just that we act childish I guess.

I just turned 30, and I've rarely had a week without gaming since 1994. As a kid I used to always play on PC, because my parents wouldn't let me have a video game console. I did however play a lot of SNES games on an emulator in my early teens, and that's what really kicked off my love for video games. In 2004 I finally bought a GameCube to be able to play The Wind Waker on my own instead of watching it over at friend's houses.

I have love for the PlayStation and its exclusives, but honestly I have never been loyal to just one brand. Right now I have a Switch and PS4.

I’m 19 and a half, my first console was Gameboy Color and my favourite game is Pokemon Blue (NOT Red!!!)

I'm 100 years old. I'm just about to have an afternoon nap before playing online with Captain Tom Moore later.

I was playing Rocket League at the start of LockDown and was teaming with a random player and we done OK. He / she messaged me and said wow we did well how old are you?

Wrote my age and the other person made me feel like a peado. What are you doing on Rocket League talking to kids? (bear in mind the other player msgd me)

I was like. Errrr, can we just play another game - want to keep this winning streak up.

So yeah I understand the sentiment. I wish there was a way to not be teamed with youngsters.

@themcnoisy That's one of the reasons I don't voice chat. Having been gaming for almost 30 years I'm painfully aware there's plenty of youths who'll just think it's plain weird to be playing alongside someone twice their age. Also I'm generally not very good at many online games, particularly shooters, and don't really appreciate being enthusiastically told so.

@Arugula If it makes you feel better, the average traditional home console gamer is around 34. I think people in the 27 - 35 range tend to be predominate on online gaming forums as well.

My age is.. unknown. I completed my first video game on ultra hard difficulty when I was 6 months old and I was brought up by three cyborg velociraptors. They call me Lieutenant Fatman and this is my story.

Well no wonder this guy thinks we're still adolescents based on comments like the ones above, lol.

Here's a serious reply: I'm 24 years old and I started gaming back in 2005 with my first system being a GBA and my first game Pokémon Sapphire. Compared to most people here, I started playing video games quite late relative to my age. But ever since then I've been gaming pretty much nonstop, experienced all kinds of systems and games, and today I simply love to explore and play as many different games as possible. I enjoy titles from Call of Duty to Metroid to Persona, it's simply a wide spectrum and I love that aspect of my gaming life. I can't imagine playing the same game or even the same genre for a long time without some variety.

If you are an adult and you’re playing a game with a bunch of kids, go for it. Who cares if people think you’re a peado!

Most things I don't care about but that's a little much. 🤣

@Arugula hey now if you ARE a peado that’s a different story. But you shouldn’t not do something in case you look like a peado. I have every right to pwn n00bs, children or otherwise.

And if you are indeed a peado, stay away from kids online and offline and seek some help!

Of course I go further back in time than 2000, that was only about ten years ago wasn't it?

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Ralizah I've seen stats like this before. However feel massively in the minority in my own age group (35-50) whenever I talk about gaming in work or socialising one or two are happy to chat, the vast majority don't game. Some even think its immature. Wherever that's my own environment - Merseyside has a unique culture, I'm unsure.

@Arugula I don't voice chat unless it's with the Pushsquare crew or a couple of mates. No chance on earth!

@TrueAssassin86x Haha yes, it's strange actually - after that scenario I stopped playing online as much. Unfortunately with Rocket League you have to game with randoms as the single player against AI is too easy, once you have good experience.
