    I'm in the low 50s. I have played The Sims continuously since The Sims 2. I've been game playing since was a teen in the mid 80s when my family bought a Colecovision (not sure I spelled that right, its been a while).

    Early 50s but still feel like early 20s in my head. If only my old bones were the same 😄

    I'm in my early 50s also. But mostly feel I'm in my 30s. I remember back in the late 80s when my Dad bought his first computer. It was a Desktop Compu Amiga. There was no such thing as Windows & Internet back then. I remember enjoying playing the Adventures of Sinbad & the 1st Original Civilization games. They where on a volume set of 3 & half floppy disks. DVDs didn't exist yet.
    And what I think of what's funny is now that I know that there was an Original Sims PC game called Sims City, I wonder why my Dad or I never, ever heard about it.
    Anyways, that's my story on how I got introduced to computers & PC games. ;)

    I just celebrated my 61st birthday.🎉 But I am thinking about aging backwards from now on.😳

  • GrimlyFiendishGrimlyFiendish Posts: 517 Member
    I grew up playing an Atari 2600, and MS Dos games, and going to physical arcades and pinball parlours, and playing Sega Mega Drive, and Nintendo, and Quake, Wolfenstein and Doom when they were first released, plus the original release of Sim City, etc etc etc. And yet there are still some people who seem shocked and amazed that a 50 year old could possibly be interested in all forms of gaming. LOLWUT?! I literally grew up gaming as a child/teen/young adult, why would you think that I'd just randomly lose interest once I hit a certain age. :D

    Amen to that. I so agree. I remember the original Atar. My Dad got that 6 years before the Compu Amiga PC. I tried to explain to my grown-up daughter that electronic games & PC games did exist back in the 80s but she just gives me a blank stare like she doesn't understand that. Her generation which is the Millinial generation doesn't get the X or Y generation.

    LOL yeah, exactly! Two of the top 5 hits in Australia for the years 1979 and 1980 were Computer Games by Mi-(actual word for woohoo) and Space Invaders by Player One, but nah we were never into gaming back then. :D

    Old enough to be semi-retired. I started playing with TS3, picked up TS2 along the line and now pretty much play TS4 exclusively. For me, it’s not about some kind of nostalgia for my youth, in case that’s what EA thinks. I wasn’t a kid when I started. The game has always been a creative outlet and was a major stress reduction strategy while working in long term care during a pandemic. The thing about younger players is that a lot of them will move on to something else at some point. They always have, and always will. Those of us that are still playing after all these years will continue to play until the game folds or we can’t play anymore. Definitely, you have to bring in new players. But the regulars, no matter what the age, provide the backbone of the base.

    I just hit 52 chronologically anyways, I have lupus so physically feel like 70, but like others my mind thinks I'm 21 lol, legal but pre kids! I was 19 when a good friend bought a home computer pre Windows and introduced me to the Quest games (Police Quest, Space Quest, and Knights Quest). I was hooked. Bought my first computer after saving money during my first military deployment in 1991. My son got me into Sims 1. I always preferred RPGs and Strategy games and thought Sims would be stupid cause really who wants to play a game about working, cooking, and cleaning lol, but I was hooked. Owned every game, pack, and store item since, except for some of the current kits.

    Mid 50s here. My first computer was a Tandy in the 80s that was basically a keyboard that you hooked up to a TV set.
