I AM A 50 YR OLD RPG GAMER, I HAVE BEEN PLAYING VIDEO GAMES SINCE I WAS 17 ON AND OFF BUT SINCE THE NES IVE BEEN PLAYING FAIRLY STEADY, STARTING OUT WITH PLATOFRMERS LIKE MARIO, TILL I GOT TO THE SNES AND CAME ACROSS ZELDA A LINK TO THE PAST! GEE SURE DID ALOT OF CHEATING IN THAT GAME, COST ME A FORTUNE TO RING THE HOTLINE DAILY TO GET THE CHEATS. NOW I AM MORE FAMILIAR WITH THE RPG STYLE I DONT CHEAT VERY OFTEN NOW.

    Our ages range from 25+, with probably the majority in their 30's, a good proportion in their 40's, some in their 50's and one (I think you're the only one Bunyip) in their 60's.

    So as you can see, you fit right in! :)

    CAPS is ok, but as long as you don't mind people SHOUTING with every word they say, lowercase is more reader friendly

    And if you CAP everything, how do you SHOUT when you wish to ?

    Hiya Julie,

    Welcome to the Fabulous 50TogTeam! I'm 53 and started playing when I got BF42 for Xmas 2002 since then I've moved into DC and CoD. I think there are a couple of other 50ers I'm pretty sure HellDad is up there with us :D

    Julie, if you're going to SHOUT in a forum, then TOG is probably one of the few places where it's an advantage, but personally I'd prefer if you didn't use caps all the time....hang me, but I find it a little rude. :roll:

    I am 42 as of the 19th December, Dillon is around 50, and yes, OldGrunt, Helldad is waaaaay past 50 :)

    I'm only a young 29, but most of my friends are in their 30's. As for using caps in a chat room, unfortunately i'm a Diablo2 refugee, and the only ppl that used caps were those saying things like LOL, YOUR AMA SO SUXOR NOOB! and other pearls of wisdom that were spouted by the Diablo communities caps officianado's aka: those under the age of 18. So i don't mind you using caps at all, but you gave me some pretty hellish flashbacks then :D 8O :p :lol:

    julie,

    wayfarer and snake are our more grumpiest members if you find the shift key too onerous all lower caps is much preferred punctuation is optional imo but youll find the grammer nazis will catch you pretty quick in fact i wouldnt be surprised to find my post rewritten before the day is out

    Welcome aboard. I hope you have fun.

    I think our youngest would probably be an early teenager posing as 25+

    Your oldest player is probably 70+ and posing as twenty something.

    Isn't that how everyone behaves on the net?

    That's dreadful, Fox!

    Julie,

    Wayfarer (a really good looking bloke) and Snake are our grumpiest members!

    Riggs, you can't be serious - a crusty old fossil at the tender age of 28. :)

    HELLO JULIE AND WELCOME TO... Sorry, didn't mean to shout, I'll start again. Hello Julie and welcome to the TOG forums. I am 55 years old, and I really am a genuine old fossil rocker, as in I still play a guitar in a rock trio for money, as do some others in TOG, but who aren't old enough to be labelled fossils. On the subject of old age, it just occurred to me that Bunyip67 must be fast approaching 68, does that mean he'll have to change his name? 8)
