Just curious, I was thinking most of us are old school bitter MMO vets.

I used to role-play a Warrior Priest now I role-play a writer.

    I didnt see that as an option.. so you picked the 0-15 as ageless would be 0 or infinity?

    After 66 votes, 85% are 26 or older.

     

    That sounds about right, considering the fairly high per person pledges on the KS campaign. If you can throw $250+ at a game that you'll only be playing in about 2 years' time, then you're most probably a working person with a fair amount of disposable income.

    Man, you couldn't have added a few more older options so I wasn't forced to vote for the geezer one? image

    It appears we are indeed a "mature" lot.

    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.

    Yeah I've succumbed to the fact that I am part of the "older" gaming generation at 37.  I wear it proudly now as I've seen pretty much everything that has come down the pipe from text based muds to free to play porn like scarlet blade ads lol. Whoever said it is right though, we might be older and fewer in number, but we have jobs and disposable income which explains why 10k people have 1.7 million posted up lol. Quality over Quanitity. Even if it doesn't fund at least it was nice having a glimmer of hope there would be a place for us more old school mature gamer.

    Holy jeez...

    My husband & I were in our mid-20s when we started playing our first MMO, EverQuest...

     

    Bloody hell I feel old now.

    I'm just glad the category is 26-30 instead of 25-29, 30-35.  I can be lumped in with the 20 somethings!  :)

    I like the idea of 0 existing as an age for a CU fan as if you could be one from within the womb or fresh out of the oven. 
  • tauraktaurak Member Posts: 174

    I'm 34 myself.

    Kinda glad to see a lot of us older people in on this game to be honest.

    Maybe we'll have a lot more mature server population, and be able to get back to the old days where your attitude on a server mattered.

    I'm sure we'll get a few trolls too though.

    I've seen a few age polls and each always seems to group everyone over 40 into one category. Funny as hell.

    You stay sassy!

    what a tragic day when your age gets lumped into the generic "40 plus" image



  • EdanyEdany Member UncommonPosts: 179
    I'm thankful that all of you bitter old bastards in here make me feel young again at 37. :p

    Couldn't agree more. When I listened to my ex's kid on xbox chat with other kids his age (from age 13-18) I wanted to stab my ear drums out.

     

    Thank god for the ability to make guilds in mmo's and only listen to guild chat/voice.

    You stay sassy!
