Re: 66 Years Old and Still Gaming Strong

My dad plays videogames and he's in his mid 50's. He use to spend hours playing the resident evils, silent hills and ace combats.

I'll be 45 in December and still going strong with the gaming. I remember having Pong, Activison and Atari when I was growing up. Then there was a long dry period where I didn't do any gaming.

Got back into it a few years after the PS2 came out. Went on to buy a PS2, Dreamcast, XBox, XBox 360 and then finally a PS3. Throw in quite a bit of PC gaming as well throughout the past 10 years and you have a hard core gamer.

I have seen my gaming time dwindle lately, but I am by no means done with it. GTA4 and the release of NCAA09 will undoubtedly give me a revival!!

Poundtherock, you are my hero. Right alongside 60-something adult film star Dave Cummings. Like you two, I hope to being both things when I hit 60 and beyond.

Me too.....

Poundtherock is definitely and inspiration. To be honest, at times over the past few weeks I have thought maybe I'd lost my passion for gaming but I don't believe that's the case. Other things have crept in that is occupying my time. I'm sure once my daughter's softball season is over, things will return to normal for me....gaming bliss!!!

Reading PTR's story has given me a fresh fire for gaming!!

Great story. I imagine that's how I'll be...someday. One thing was bugging me though. While reading that story I kept envisioning Grandpa Simpson's voice. wth is wrong with me.

Re: 66 Years Old and Still Gaming Strong

I went to MM and used the search engine, I put in "Poundtherock is 66" or something like that.

At the time of the thread and post he was 65 (BD in Nov like me hehe!)

I saw a thread made with his name directed at him, he responded with something like zzzzZZZzzzzzZZzzz.... Hahaha!

I then saw the introduce yourself thread where a few people did a "huh What!?" when he put towards the bottom that he was (then) 65. He provided a link in that thread to another thread that must be the one where he showed his ID to show his age. But the link is no good any longer, it is broken.

I'd love to read the original thread where he posted the age any people could not believe it, then he posted the proof.

Not because I do not believe you PTR, I do in fact.

I just would love to read the reactions of people being floored with the info and proof! hehe.
