Are you over 40 and still play MMO's? Are you some big wig at some corporation and the kids that work for you would be shocked if you kick their butts in pvp? Or do you have all the time in the world like me and you pick and choose your MMO's? Maybe your a single perent that runs with the kids in their game of choice?

Lets hear your ya I am over 40 and I run a guild story. For me I am in between games right now I prob will sub again to WoW MOP just because it looks like fun. Been thinking about making a lvl 24 twink just to kick some hordie butt. Not to thrilled with any other MMO out now. I love the fact that I am on my schedule and no one elses.

So lets hear it if your 40+ give a shout out.

    What the heck is a guild story?
  • Johnie-MarzJohnie-Marz La Puente, CAPosts: 865Member

    I'm + 40 as well.

    I Got into MMO's because my brother lived in a different state and it was a way for us to hang out.

    However, having played pen and paper games as well as many rpg computer games, including the gold box series, I love the potential of MMO's, even if I haven't found that game that has, Everything I want.

    As a result, I just want well made games irregardless of whether they are Sandboxes or Themeparks.

    That is for example if you are over forty and you run a very successful guild on your fav MMO.

    I'm over 40, man.  I think Warcraft is very groovy and far out, but I'm playing GW2 at the moment until I can play that sweet, sweet MoP.

    20 year olds don't have mid-life crises unless you're a hippy and don't expect to live beyond 30.

    Actually no, this post has nothing to do with the definition of a midlife crisis. Sorry.

    Its about someone who loves a hobby and is interested in other people of a similar age who also enjoy that hobby.

    I am 61 and have my own game room in my house set up just for computer games.  My colleagues think I am nutz, but I enjoy the hell out of them. Screw em

    I get my ass handed to me in PvP, but screw it...I enjoy it.  I have a very high stressed job, going into another world relaxes me.

    I'm 62 - retired - enjoying TSW at the moment. Sometimes I am rebuked for my less than stellar reaction times during raids (or any group play) but it's ok - having fun and passing some time - delightful

    I am 67.   Like others have said most people think I am in my second childhood.  I also have my game room with a 35 in flatscreen for a monitor, a computer, and an Xbox 360.

    I have been playing computer games since they started.

    I'm 45 and even though I'm not currently playing any MMOs regularly I still enjoy gaming every chance I get. I play mostly single player games right now as I'm kinda burnt out on the whole multiplayer scene MMOs included. I'm sure all it will take is a really good MMO to come along to suck me back in though. So far I figure since most MMOs are basically single player games now anyways I might as well save the extra expense and just play single player games. When a truly Massively Multiplayer MMO releases I'm sure I'll be all over it.

    No required quests! And if I decide I want to be an assassin-cartographer-dancer-pastry chef who lives only to stalk and kill interior decorators, then that's who I want to be, even if it takes me four years to max all the skills and everyone else thinks I'm freaking nuts. -Madimorga-

    Never trust anyone over 30.

    I don't really post much anymore.  I lurk, but that's about it.  A lot of the people that made posting pervy things fun have left...

     

    I mean look at Zorvan... I figured he was gone for good.  It takes a seriously interesting thread for me to actually break out of my lazyness and push a few keys to enter my user name and password.  More often than not, it's not worth the key strokes and the mouse click.  image
