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.
Hey, I played Bard's Tale. Wizardry was better, though.

A-Team? Sure :)
Knight Rider? Sure
Battlestar Galaktica. (Old one. Lorn Greene. Shinning planet known as Eaaaar-th). ah-yup.

I think the show you were really looking for was..
Don't forget Dukes of Hazzard and Dallas, friday nights at 8 and 9, and Friday night Videos before there was MTV

I'm 35 and still play quite a bit.

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.

Of course, now that we're generationaly challenged..Ah-ha, Dixies Midnight Runners, Flock of Seagulls or Duran Duran music pumped way loud with six packs of New Coke, Rubik's Cubes and chicks in tight pants, belted big shirts and with big hair will get us running (shuffling) every time.


I am a child of the early 80's and quite proud thank you very much :)

I absolutely loved galactica. then again I'm sure part of it was because I had such a huge crush on Starbuck :eek:. Funny you mentioned this show too cause was only a couple of days ago my bf and I were talking about how much we both enjoyed it as kids. and since its now to late to lie and say I'm 21 I'll mention my real age which is 38. and yes in case anyone wondering? I am a woman :lol: started playing because my kids were always talking about the game and I never had the foggiest clue what they were talking about. So i figured the best way to do it was learn it by playing it. and that was ages ago

I guess you dislike the new one.:eek: a female Starbuck?! Blasphemy!!!

Being 20, I grew up in the Computer age corrupted. I rarely play DII now because I found some more AD&D mates to roleplay with.

Im 30 now, been playing a couple years now and don't intend to stop. On the generational pk issue, my best friend who is 30 also, plays side-by-side with his son now 6 and his brother 28 who also has a son now 8 that plays. We also play with his uncle 40-ish and his two sons both in their mid 20's. D2, bringing families together......for pk-ing...lol :lol:
