Re: 66 Years Old and Still Gaming Strong

My dad is 64 (in July) and retired - he plays all the time. He will play The Show, NCAA and Madden and sometimes NHL. He finishes every season, playing all 162 in baseball. I get a report everytime we talk, which is often. He is still on the PS2, though I am thinking he is headed to a PS3 soon.

great story.

I remember that thread when PTR revealed his age. He PM'd me and asked if he should do it, and I told him to go for it, there was nothing to be ashamed of.

PTR, I got you for 2-2-0, you were one of my most loyal members. Hopefully you can have a good season when the league starts this September.

Keep going pound. I turn 53 in August,and have my gaming room set up with 360,Ps3,Psp for trips,and of course the 42" Sony Hdtv. Also with a quick switch can game on the 24" Dell widescreen monitor. Life can get in the way sometimes,but I get in 6 or 7 games a week. 12 yrs from retirement,and then the fun really starts. Imagine what the systems and graphics will be like then.

Ha! Great story! I'm 36 and although my gaming time has decreased significantly since my HS and college days...If I had to categorize my personality...it would be gamer! Every once in awhile my wife or mom says to me.."when are you gonna grow up?" and I respond " to what?.."strip clubs?..pickup bars?..golf"? If I blew all my money golfing would that be acceptable? Anyway fun story, and I always wondered when I would outgrow videogames..maybe never is now the correct answer!

Hey, Laettner 32,
This is Mrs. PTR. Let your wife or mom read the article about Pound. And tell them I said the gaming keeps him where I can find him, like you said, out of the strip clubs and away from the wild, wild women out there! I know he is safe and secure in his man cave playing his Madden.

Great story, Chris! And I'm sure PTR and I will be able to get a few games in online again this year. Looking forward to it. Whatever keeps you young, do it!

You bet, Copter. Next game is mine, lol.

# 15 dave374 @ 06/10/08 11:00 PM
PTR is the first guy at MM that's ever made me feel young.

Dave, you and I lust after the same women, McFeever, of course, [MM joke] but naturally, after Mrs. PTR!

# 16 stizz @ 06/10/08 11:27 PM
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.

Ace Combat, I love. But they have a ways to go to get it right. Meld the technology of MS Flight sim and expand the theatre and they have a point of reference!

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!!

Hossier, I think we all in this age group got start on "Pong," lol. Or Buck Rogers, or whatever. Don't ever forget your beginning, but more importantly, we must not forget our ending, for our ending makes the beginning seem unimportant if we do. "In the beginning........"

For whatever reason, we all have times of priorities. You adjust. But don't leave a "love" for too long, lest that love leave you. I can tell gaming is a love to you. Just set the priorities.

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.

[No comment, lol.]

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!!

Okay, Spanky and Hoosier, I hope I get this right, that at 66 you wish to have the prowess of a pornstar and the gaming of PTR. Mrs. PTR concurs that she hopes you do too!

# 20 burnwood @ 06/11/08 01:30 AM
Great story. I imagine that's

See, Burnwood is my age......he took a nap. J/K.

# 21 Hellisan @ 06/11/08 01:57 AM
I love it. I missed the thread where his age was revealed. This totally took me by surprise. You go PTR!!!

Hellisan, Hellisan...you have got the most hellish looking avatar in MM. However, you make some very good observations. I consider it noteworthy of your comment here.

# 22 tyronebiggums35 @ 06/11/08 02:01 AM
THIS GUY IS MY NEW ROLE MODEL!!! MOVE OVER TIM DUNCAN!!!

Mrs. PTR just said, "who is Tim Duncan," lol.

# 23 Boltman @ 06/11/08 08:37 AM
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.

Thanks, Boltman. Laughing at oneself is good for the soul. That age admission came out during the "MM Old Timers Tournament.." I put my DL up through my internet site at the time but took it down after a couple of days dur to privacy reasons. Of course the name was blotted out. I'll check and see if anything can be revived, so-to-speak, and if so send you a PM.

Mdgoalie37, great for your dad and great for you that he's doing it!
If he gets the PS3, don't forget to tell him to send me an FR, Poundtherock, so we can get some games going. And make sure that he mentions your name so I know that it's him.

# 26 mobbdeep1122 @ 06/11/08 02:00 PM

Awww, Mobb, my young mentor, someone that is young enough to be my grandson but very wise in years.

The early times of the PS3 we weathered together!

Thanks for your help and inspiration. 2-2-0 in '09 is gonna ROCK!!!

Dang, Snaz, you the man! Keep on keeping on! I like your hardware and your attitude! That's what it's all about!

But.........................Mrs. PTR said you must quit referring to your space as a "gaming room," and replace that with "Man Cave."

# 28 Scottdau @ 06/11/08 08:21 PM
I think Jim the roster guru is over 90.

I need an FR so I can get a game. Not sure, but I hope I can be competitive.


Fellas, your comments have been overwhemling. If only one person gains inspiration to continue keeping the mind and body capable of what it can achieve in a healthy scenario, the story is a success!
