Eldest person playing?

All of us love this fantastic game. But how old are you? I'm 25 and I can't see myself ever giving it up. So does anyone's grandparents play? Are you a grandperson yourself?

How old (young with stlye) is the oldest person playing this game?

I'm an old man at 50. A co-worker is over 60 and plays. At least until his shoulder and arm start hurting from the mouse clicking!

I am 56, my friend who also plays is 58... and I started with a commodore 64.. and remember "Bard's Tale" as my first rpg computer game.. which was as addictive as Diablo and DiabloII.

I'm 36 an have played DII up till I switched to WoW. I will probably play video games till my eyes go completely blind.

I recall that there was a post where a 69 year old grandmother played all the time.

I'm 30.. thats right I hit the big three-o a couple of months back. I still play D2 sometimes but not as often as I used to. Right now I'm looking towards WoW or Guildwars.

I'll still be playing computer games at the nursing home when I'm 90, if I live to be that age.

I'm 29.

Until he got a new game I played (on Asia1) almost every night with a Canadian guy that was 45. On the nights I didn't play with him I played with his 8 year old son. On the nights they weren't on they were on East playing with their father/grandfather who was in his sixties. I hear generational pk is fun.

I can see a future when we will all be begging our children to send us to the retirement home - by then shuttlecock and bingo will be long forgotten and we will all be playing computer games (but retirement homes being what they are a lot of us will only be able to play DII because the computers won't be able to handle WoW let alone anything else).

I actually feel young being 23 years now :D

Not like on bnet, that seems to be filled with 14-16 year olds... There I feel like I'm a grandfather :lol:

Well I am 50 and been playing since the Clive Sinclair days. And DIABLO I won in a competition set by Blizzard on its release in the UK :)

First Dungeon game I ever played was Rogue on a Sinclair. A whopping 8k of memory and a single 8" Floppy.

26 and ALSO played on a Sinclair ZX Spectrum once...
I guess I'm just old enough to be somewhat part of the Sinclair era. :D

edit: lol, what in god's name has happened to my avatar (stored on rpgforums.net too!)... Looking very strange here at least... Oh well, can't be bothered to fix it :)

started off with manic miner, jet set willie, Halls of the Things and Fairlight on Spectrum 48 and then discovered Dungeon Master on AMIGA. Never looked back :)
