khnk222: Yeah, we're definitely a minority. Most people around my age that I know play Black Ops and other mainstream console games.

X3R022: Hey, it's not just the teenagers that play FPS's on consoles. I've been known to play a few of those myself.
My teacher who is 24 plays Black Ops 2. I'm not a huge fan of COD games and I don't own any of them but I did enjoy playing them when I did play them(my sister has some of the COD games for her PS3 and I rented and played a few of the COD games on my 360 in the past). I think old PC games are way better, less streamlined and more complicated, that sort of thing.

samtron75v1: I just passed the guy above me as being youngest.
I'm 15, been going out with my girlfriend for about 6 months. Checked out GoG to see if they had Sacrifice, as it was one of the first games I played, I'm pretty sure that I'm in the minority here age-wise.

I have nothing wrong with mainstream console games, but I find a lot of them don't have that spark that goes into a making a great game. A good game needs some passion put into the making of it, and for the developers to actually care about more than making a decent buck.
I am as old as the fjords and as young as a newborn lamb.
I'm too young to be old, yet I'm too old to be young.

Catch 22, yo. :(
24 and married. The wife isn't a huge fan of computer games, but she gets I play them

HomerSimpson: But when I offered to teach her how to play so that she could play a game of her own (as opposed to watching over my shoulder as I played) she declined. I asked her if it had anything to do with the exploding bodies that occurred with each kill (since I morbidly enjoyed it, I thought she might, too), but no that wasn't it, either. To this day, I'm befuddled.
Some people simply prefer to watch, rather than interact. They can mentally step back and appreciate the story, instead of getting caught up in the mundane details of which button does what, and what they need to do to advance the action. And they can enjoy your enjoyment, which comes partly from your having worked hard to develop a skill set they don't share.

My niece and nephew love playing Skylanders Giants. And I love watching them play it. But I've never played the game myself, and I doubt I ever will. From a moviegoer's perspective, the puzzles and challenges are fun, and the interactions are often funny; but from a player's standpoint, it's just not my thing.
19 and in college.
I just got my reading glasses recently. Married to a non-gamer who possibly plays games more than I do.

You have to take her on a plane ride and push her out.

My mother has been 22 for many years now. I think it started in her 50's.

Point Man: I'm curious, for those of us who are younger, what brought you to a site called Good OLD Games? At our Age i don't think we grew up with things like Might & Magic / Ultima or a lot of these games, yet we're here buying and playing them. Or at least i am.
I'm 21, and I have to admit, what caused me to create an account on GOG was that they gave out Empire Earth for free. I knew about the site from before because my dad had purchased some games here, but I never really looked into the site until then. I stayed here because of the community and all the great games.
18 here and foreveralone

They GAVE out EE!! FOR FREE!?!?! Shit, where was I?! That is one of the greatest games ever, minus the German invasion stuff; trying to get Norway quickly is never as easy as they make it sound.
