I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.
I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.
I don't hate much, but I hate Apple© with a passion. If Steve Jobs was alive, I would punch him in the face.
Originally posted by Edany I'm thankful that all of you bitter old bastards in here make me feel young again at 37.
It's not about how old you are NOW. It's about how old you will be when the game goes LIVE!
I am proud to be part of the 40+ crowd... interesting that, right now, it's the most highly represented on the poll.
...and it seems I opened my "The Eldritch Wizardry" just yesterday.

Originally posted by grvmpybear Can't vote from mobile, but I'm 22. DAoC was my first MMO.
Sheeesh...you were barely out of diapers when DAOC came out!
I put myself in the over 40 group as I turn 40 in...29 days. NOOOooooooooo.........
Course...I have a 2 year old son (my future gold farmer) and we are talking about a 2nd (wife 4 years younger). So in 2 years when CU comes out...my then 4 year old is going to have to play with the 2 year old so I can play CU! heh.
DAOC was technically my 3rd "real" mmo, but the first one that made it more then a year (6+ years)
40+ in da house! (Because we generally don't like to leave the house... ever.)
Seriously, I think this is a very interesting breakdown, especially considering the <20 crowd is so small. I watch my own kids play on the iPad and iPhones, but they have little interest in the consoles or computer games. This is a fascinating cultural trend.

I am so old and bitter, I can not even stand to be on comms with teens anymore....
I am in the 40+ group and also can't stand listening to people talk on coms. It is one of the reasons I can't play Xbox Live any more--I always think: "Just f***ing shut up everyone..." It is maybe less efficient typing but it makes me feel so much better.

I think (hope?) there are a lot of us out there that feel this way.
I know I'm not an actual fan of CU, but I wanted to see the results so I selected my age group. To think this may be the last poll that I'm not lumped in the "and up" group is a bit of a downer, but that's cool. I got into MMOs with EQ and I was in my 20's then.
For some reason this had me remembering how frustrated I would get with people sometimes. I'm happy that's all in the past. Nothing has shocked me or garnered an angry response in a long time now.
At least we start with a higher wisdom than others these days. ;-)
Best of luck to the lot of you with CU. I hope it shapes up to be what you are looking for!
Originally posted by Lawtoween Originally posted by meddyck Man, you couldn't have added a few more older options so I wasn't forced to vote for the geezer one?
Painful, wasn't it? I'm used to being one of the more "mature" players of the games I play, but I don't really think of myself in the terminal age group. I just made this one, though.
Plus, when I was playing WoW with Archer (and he was just getting out of diapers) there were two members of our guild much older than me, so even though I was playing also with my son (not Arch), I didn't feel that old (8 years ago). By the time this game launches my son won't even be in the youngest age group.
Now I'm depressed. Thank God I didn't read this thread until the kickstarter crossed $1,780,000 or I'd be even more depressed.
Ya ya ya.. I pretty much was. And now I have a kid on the way.. So I think we can both 'feel old' in our own right. :-)

I know, and I'm sure it showed in my gameplay I started in early 2003, and try to play my warden like a hero. xD I would've been... what... 11?
My grandma bought me the game as a birthday present (I was super into medieval stuff) without knowing it was subscription based, or even what an mmo was. I remember my mom took me to see Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers that same day, and I read the box and the booklet the whole way there. I remember watching the movie and thinking, "Wow! I can be whoever I want in this game! I could be LEGOLAS!" On the way home, I found the section about need to pay to play. I was devastated, so she agreed to pay the $15/month and did so for 2 or 3 mmo-addiction filled years haha.
Nothing can come close to the way I felt when I played DAoC. I was so young and it was all so new to me. I guess I'm hoping CU can bring back a few of those fuzzy feelings.
There's good commo discipline and then there's Xbox live players. The two never meet.
TS is hand down the most effecient way to do group pvp.

I hear you, brother. When the world is new and fresh, gaming is so exhilirating. It is sad when this falls away to bickering over mechanics and balance and so forth. We would be wise to rediscover our child-like wonder and forget the cynicism as we age. Easier said than done.
Here's wishing CU hits the mark for all of us!
wow we're a bunch o old farts!
btw thanks for reminding me I'm in my 30's now haha

40+ is theoretically lumping 40 year olds with 100 year olds ;p
Originally posted by ucidaitaci Wow 40+, I thought your generation dislike video games (which includes my parents) but damn, I wish I have you guys as my parents.
