    Default Genesis fan ages....

    Just curious about the ages of all you Genesis gamers out there. I'm in my early 40s, but notice that a lot of people here are 20-somethings (with a dose of 30-somethings and teens). So I'm posting a poll to see the age demographic for no other reason than sheer curiosity.

    I'm 21, but I'm turning 22 on the 18th of this month. My dad is the immortal one. He's 66. Yes, my father was 44 when I was born, and I brag about it, because he is immortal. my mom is 12 years younger (54) and it is said if you are married, or with someone younger than you, that you live longer...

    Throughout history, suspicion has always bred conflict. The real conflict, though, resides in people's hearts. This conflict has just begun.

    Heh; I'm glad you approve. I had a fear it may have been done already but was honestly too lazy to check.

    I'm always surprised when I see a teen on this forum as they would have been too young to play the Genesis when it came out. I'm always curious how someone that young "comes into the fold".

    Personally, I grew up with video games. I remember when Pong came out, and I spent many a youthful hour playing the Atari 2600. I've gone in and out of console gaming over the years, but have watched it grow from blips and beeps into full blown 3d worlds.

    I've often wondered if my predilection for 2d gaming is due to the fact that my "formative years" coincided with the 2d gaming heyday of video games. I've played 3d games, but feel the paradigm shift has lead to less focused and less interesting games, where graphics and formulaic gameplay have replaced the simplicity and diverse creativity of the 2d games of my youth...

    Nah, it's because most modern games suck balls, which I believe you went on to say, though not in so many words and far more eloquently.

    Heh; I agree for the most part. The only recent-gen game I like is a 2d platformer, Little Big Planet. Media Molecule did a great job of making a genuine platformer that takes advantage of modern consoles capabilities without actually breaking the gameplay.

    I do feel like, in the 16 bit days, due to the constraints of the platforms, developers were forced to be creative trying to come up with a new take on 2d games. That creativity seems to have been replaced with graphic flash. And I won't even talk about the endless iterations of sports games...

    Physical age, or mental age? (maturity).

    Two vastly different things.

    I'm going for physical age. It's easier to quantify No way am I revealing my mental age...

    I can't really pin down my mental age.

    Physically, I'm 29.

    Ah man, if it were a year and a few days from now I'd be able to say that I'm twenty. But no, I can only say that I'm a teenager right now.

    I'm 33, my greatest memories were of Atari and then Sega. Sure, I played them all but loved those the best.

    Newer games just don't appeal to me. I was really hoping that Force Unleashed would make me buy a 360, but no. Been waiting for a great Star Wars game since Dark Forces.

    Lego doesn't count, that was more about Lego with a twist. Still fun on the GameCube tho.

    I approve all of the responses so far because it keeps this thread up so it can get more votes and therefore a more accurate response.
