I meant an age table, just for fun. I know I'd be in the top whatever :D

If we had active admins,tbey couldprobably pull the age data from the member list.

I'll be 44 in April too, but I don't think I'm near the top of the table.

I think nothing of it.. being a gamer, and always have, I don't care in the least what anyone thinks! I love it, always have, I'm sure always will. These days I find are a breeze compared to the halcyon 8-bit days when you'd get called "nerd" or whatever, these days those very same people are on their computers or devices probably even more than me.. how the tides change.

But I've never felt ostracized or different and I still don't.. you have to do what you really want to do, and goDAMMIT I shall continue to play those games ;)

actually an interesting point Antiriad brought up.. will games drop off once again as they did once? Hmm.. anything is possible. Games are just so incredibly addictive though, and there are more than ever before - there is essentially a "game to suit everyone" nowadays. So I don't know. I tend to think games are here to stay now.. I think the stigma is long gone and I'll probably even look outside and see the cat Miss Kitty playing with a Nintendo Gameboy or something, I just think gaming is too massive now to drop off, at least for some time anyway.

We'll see.
