58 here...

 

and I never played on a console until I read about this game and thought "I must have some of that!!!"

 

Loving it so far - just practising my gamepad skills in SP mode before I go online.

 

Are there any crews for old guys?

I'll be 46 in a few days. Nice to see some of the older folks enjoying video games. I've been playing them since Pong. The Commodore 64 has always held a special place in my heart. Some awesome games with good replay value.

Wohah! Do anyone of you play on PlayStation? Because about 85% of people I meet on PlayStation are younger than me.

 

And I am only 16!

Yes darling. I've got a ps3, you're welcome round my crib ANYTIME!

Have yourself a shower and smoke some weed and get drunk and that x

 

Do you like guys with gray beards? :)

44 years young here, have not really been in to gaming for a while and certainly not online, but got back into it with GTA V, very addicted to it, very excited about the new games for the PS4, The Division and Watchdogs, will wait to buy one until I get bored of GTA.

 

My first game was something like this :

 

photo_TAndyTVscoreboard3061thum.JPG

 

Played pong and a shooting game and some other games.

 

First "computer" was the Synclair ZX-81

 

sinclair_zx81_1s.jpg

 

It had 1 kB memory !!!!!

 

Saved like crazy for the 16 kB extension  :lol:

 

Played text-based adventure games, seems like the dark ages  :santa:

I'll be 43 in May. My Dad bought us Pong when it came out in the early 70s. It was a big deal. I've been gaming ever since. So has my dad, just in a somewhat lesser capacity. He's in his early sixties. Enjoys a racing game, my Dad. Most of the gamers I know are mid thirties through to late forties.

 

Every single one of them agrees that GTA4 was the weakest title in the entire GTA series.

I'm 56 & I love the GTA games. I played all of them apart from the 1st 2 so that's all the 3d one's. I like to explore & take in all the details that make these games so much fun.

you should do yourself a big favour and play the first 2, they're amazing if you can look past the graphics.

I would like to know if there are other older players enjoying this game. I have been gaming since the first video games came on the scene, like Pong, and Intelevision. I am just turning 63 and am curious if there are others like me, or if I am an anomaly. Please reply if you are another "old" person. By the way , I think this is the best video game of all time. I play every day although I am only at rank 51 online.

52 here and yes I do enjoy the game SP most of the time, I play around with MP but because of work I don't play as often as I would like ,I have been trying to rank up online but if I don't play it seems everyday I lose rank online.

I am 40 and absolutely love GTA V and GTAO.  My online partner's dad who is 67 JUST BOUGHT GTAV and apparently is blown away by it.  He's a Forza freak so we'll have to get him to the online races.

 

I am very pleased to be alive in this era, to be able to enjoy a type of entertainment that 50-years ago was inconceivable, and I look forward to experiencing the next giant leap or two (Oculus Rift and beyond) in immersive gaming in the coming years before I leave this earth.

And no, We don't think this is the best video game of all time, neither one of the best

But We still play it for some strange reason

47 here...

 

My first video game (arcade type) came out a little after pong (Space Race)-- I was 7 years old and played it at a pizza place in 1973-- Shakey's Pizza Parlor in Riverside California.

 

http://www.arcade-mu...hp?game_id=9681

 

I played atari 2600 and atari 5200 til I got a commodore 64 then played mainly PC games-- took quite a bit time off of gaming (college and navy years) until I got a PS2 in 2002 and fell in love with GTA-- my first being Vice CIty.... My favorite game has to be Red Dead Redemption though....

 

Not to mention being registered here for 10 years! This is awesome and slightly inspirational. I agree with you on RDR as well! Patiently waiting for another installment in the series.. 

 

I'm 76 and I like this game, now I'm retired and I imagine if my life is like michael

 

Let's be real.............

Well, when I started this topic I really didn't expect a lot of replies. But I'm glad to see some older players still with some child left in them at this stage of their life. I also liked  the other gentlemen who mentioned RDR as the best game ever as I agreed with him until I played GTA 5. But the argument is still a valid one. I think what I enjoyed about this thread mainly though was the lack of negative replies that I usually see in the posts from other threads. Perhaps because It was an older crowd commenting on and appreciating the advancement of gaming since the era that we started playing games like Pong. Thanks for all your comments.

I'll be 31 next Sunday, been gaming since I remember, my first gaming device was an MSX BASIC, was like a Spectrum but of "blank brand" and games were in audio tapes. If life allow's me I'll be 80 and I'll still be gaming for sure. I played all GTA's since GTA 1, never got them to 100% though, I was doing it for IV but then Rockstar messed it up somehow and my 97% went to 46% or something so I decided It wasn't worth it. Didn't play V yet because I'm waiting for PC version, I don't have a console since SEGA Dreamcast (well I have a PSP but it's not the same thing), but I'm expecting to take V to 100% and keep in online for long time (I played an online game for 5 years till it went to hell, and others before for 1 or 2 years till they closed and got broken, so I expect a better support from Rockstar).

Big respect for keeping a gamer at that age.
