Started playing online with Quake 1 (when i got cable)
Quake 1 CTF
Little bit of Quake 2

Played some Half life 1, counter strike, BF1942, city of heroes.

Then a year back i tryed BF3 but i gave it back to a friend of mine afther 1 day.
it was so difrent from bf1942 what was a really good game..
I then bought Black ops 2, played that till BF4 came out because i wanted the bf1942 experience back and so far i like it allot

I just turned 35, FPS origins Wolf and Doom and Quake on pc and of course CS since 1.1.

First found XIM on some MS forums and have purchased 3 different models.  I think I bought 2 XIM360's due to temper tantrum after someone stole my xbox and then 6mos later buying new xbox and needing new xim lol.

No, honestly, I thought the average age here would be lower than 20. I just began playing FPS games on pc pretty soon, and then I decided to switch to X360 and came across that sweet XIM tool.

Wow i never thought there was so many active older users on here (30+)
Really glad i started this thread now :)

Thanks for replying guys!!!

It actually makes perfect sense to me....

Most of us older guys (44 here) started out with Atari and Nintendo.  As things progressed we (at lest "I") moved to computer based games and got use to using a mouse.  When the Playstation and Xbox came around and the consoles took a big leap, it came time to move back to consoles rather than upgrading the video card every other week.  After using a mouse for years it's hard to go back to the sticks so that's when it's time to find XIM. :)

49 - I thought I'd be the oldest. Good to see others that I can call gramps and other old names! LOL

Started playing Doom DM against local friends via 9600 baud modem (dial-up for you really young players).
Graduated to Duke Nukem 3D via modem and LAN parties.
Had my first "online" FPS DM via a program called Kali.
Next stop Quake 2 via BROADBAND! Did DM, CTF clan ladders (Remember the TEN network?)
Got lost in Everquest for a few years and went back to FPS's.

I'm tried of updating PC's when the consoles are so much more ....  ummm...  convenient. But as hard as I've tried I just can't get the hang of a console controller for FPS. I thought I was destined to be a Xbox n00b the rest of my days. I can't wait for my revenge! Mwuahahahaha!

Pretty much sums it up for me.  I got tired of hacking in pc or always suspecting it, and the cost of constantly having to upgrade converted me over to console.  I refused to buy a console until this little device called a Xim came along.

For me too, I’m one of the “gramps” here (56), one of my nephews had an Atari and I used to play with him. Then early 80’s got into computers in college (punching cards) after it was all PC games, from the first MS flight simulator to the last; also Doom, Quake all of Half Life’s, etc. Got into console PS3 because friends at work but could not use the controller found XIM and the rest its history.

I don't think that's true at all.  Most of my friends and co-workers are all primarily PC gamers and only a handful are console players.  My co-workers are all much younger than me (I'm 45) and they have no interest in consoles at all.  I am primarily a PC gamer as well.  I just have a 2 close friends that only game on console so I use the XIM so I can play with them without wanting to pull my hair out.

For background, I went from Atari 2600 > Colecovision > C64 > Amiga > PC.  I've always owned all the current consoles but after the C64 mostly played on the PC and definitely when the 3DO/N64/PS1 generation came out I found out how ridiculous it was to try to play a FPS with a controller, especially after years of playing Doom / Duke 3D / Quake / etc with mouse & kb.

Anyway, I just wanted to clear up some misconceptions about PC gaming - it's bigger than it's ever been and nowhere near as expensive as people like to make it out to be and you get a much better game experience overall.  Consoles are great because they can limit the amount of hacking / cheating and they never need to be upgraded (which is also a downside).

THIS.  -- I am 28 as well. Wife, House, No kids yet... I offered my wife a puppy instead.. it isn't going well.. although I still ended up with the dog. haha

Trying to remember my first PC shooter.. I want to say was Wolf 3D back in the days before strafe.

I do remember the tedious task of cleaning the lint out of ball mice.. until my father brought this cleaning kit home that he was using at work (nerds.. like father like son)  It was like a velcro ball the same size as the mouse ball, you drop that in and then use the mouse on a special pad.. a few swipes and your mouse was good as new.

Well I don't know how you are concluding that PC gaming community is bigger than ever. The biggest it ever was, its when command and conquer and battlefield 1942 were popular .  its declining everyday because of hackers and prices of upgrades which in my opinion its a rippoff . we should focus on topic though. I don't think I will ever stop gaming. Its always been a part of my life and I will keep playing until I can't anymore :)

Exactly why I am on xbox.

Less hackers
Don't have to upgrade as often
Thanks to XIM, I still get to KB/M.

thexder, that is a blast from the past. My favorite store in high school was Software ETC. and I remember when they only had a dozen games to pick from at any time. felt like 1 good game came out every few YEARS back then. Thexder was one of those games I bought for my ibm model 30.

GATO 1 and Starflight  and Bards Tale 1 got my hooked on PC DOS gaming. when I was a grade schooler. Back when a 8088 Zenith PC with 256K of RAM and a code wheel for copy protection was cutting edge.

back in "those days" you had to understand how to edit your config.sys and autoexec.bat files, including having multiple configs for your computer for different programs!

I remember learning how to use internet FTP back in 93 in order to download a shareware program called Return to Castle Wolfenstein. From there I cemented my passion for technology and led to a career.

its almost sad today that 99% of games just "work" and don't require fiddling with your PC so its like that gateway to technology is closed.

fun to reminisce with you old timers! ha!

Oh yeah forgot to add, just got my 1st pair of prescription glasses yesterday, just for gaming! The optometrist thought I was kidding Lol... the ignoranus!

I was thinking of getting some new glasses for gaming lol.  I wear contacts 99% of the time so my glasses are a $20 pair lol.

Is this first set of glasses at all for you or do you prefer glasses to contacts when gaming..

Yeah this was my first pair of glasses EVER!

It was a pretty hilarious experience to be honest. I sit exactly 4 1/2ft. from my monitor. So I made the optometrist stand that far away with his little letter chart. He got so annoyed going back and forth between making adjustments and holding the chart 4 1/2ft. away that he called in his secretary to hold the chart for him. I wasn't leaving there until I had perfect vision at that distance lol..

I have 15/20 vision for distance. But reading off the monitor started to get a little blurred at times so I thought WTH I'll give glasses a try just for that. Man, I am amazed at how much it improved my vision for gaming. I see blacks and reds so much better that it almost seems 3dish. Everything really pops out, I would compare it to seeing 480p and then suddenly 720p. I'm seeing alot of little details that I honestly didn't even no I was missing. Pretty cool cause I thought my vision was actually really good without glasses!

Wow, I feel young in here.

16 years old.

Sorry for the double post.

But what you young guys don't realize is that when you get older you actually have more time for gaming. I'm not talking 20's, 30's so much because you have young kids usually during that time frame. But now my kids are all adults except one so it's just me and the wife mostly. Sure we go camping and on vacations, we both still snow board (I live in Colorado after all). But we have alot of extra time on our hands now. Way more then I did in my 20's and 30's. Hell I was fighting wars back then and in my Teens I was always chasing girls or running around town. Sure I had some Mario, Link and Tecmo Bowl binge runs but I game ALOT more now then I did back then!

42 soon like Obsiv :D but I am older by couple months. That is very important to me LOL

41 here as well, sounds like a good group to be in.  ;)

Oh yeah forgot to add, just got my 1st pair of prescription glasses yesterday, just for gaming! The optometrist thought I was kidding Lol... the ignoranus!

I can see thise banners at opticians now:
Want to improve your K/D ratio? Want to pwn and 0wn?! Get new glasses now!

I was thinking of getting some new glasses for gaming lol.  I wear contacts 99% of the time so my glasses are a $20 pair lol.

Is this first set of glasses at all for you or do you prefer glasses to contacts when gaming..

Yeah this was my first pair of glasses EVER!

It was a pretty hilarious experience to be honest. I sit exactly 4 1/2ft. from my monitor. So I made the optometrist stand that far away with his little letter chart. He got so annoyed going back and forth between making adjustments and holding the chart 4 1/2ft. away that he called in his secretary to hold the chart for him. I wasn't leaving there until I had perfect vision at that distance lol..

50.4 yrs old......like a guy earlier said and a line I use a lot is 50 is the new 40.
We have no kids.  Actually, I'm the big kid.
Use to be a die hard gamer on PC........I use to play only single player back in the day. The first game that got me into playing the multiplayer was Kingpin:Life of Crime.  I still remember the great times playing Return To Castle Wolfenstein.  I never looked back after that.
50 is just a number!!!!!
I'll be gaming until life is over!!!!!
Game on MOFO's  :)
Peace out.....................

I love the fact that many people here including myself were brought up in a pre internet age so we appreciate the tech advancements we have today a lot more.

My first console was an atari (xc12) that work only with tapes (blu-ray wasnt very popular back then ;)) and then i got an atari 2600 and mr postman which is still the best game ever made. even better in multiplayer :D

Agreed.  I was a big metal head back in the 80's / 90's (well, I suppose I still am heh).  Hair Bands was synonymous with Glam Rock (Poison, Cinderella, Bon Jovi, etc).  Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, etc, were just considered thrash bands (or even just metal bands).  Even though they had long hair they didn't spray or style their hair which, I believe, is how the name "Hair Bands" came about.

Metallica was definitely heavier than the hair bands except for their self titled album (enter sandman, unforgiven, nothing else matters).  That album was much lighter than any of their previous ones and had similar sounds to the hair bands at the time.  I remember many of their hardcore fans were so pissed with that album......lol.

though metallicas black album metal was watered down... sad but true was extremely heavy and may have spawned stomp.

its funny my favorite guitar players idol was van halen. its amazing how things change in 10 years let alone 30.

im still thinking its a cycle though between electronic and analog. well see.

41. (rockin games since Atari 2600. I spent many hour at arcades. Too hard to explain to the youth.)

2 kids (16 and 6) both gamers.

Wife (smokin' hot. Really, she won't let me post her pic to prove it because she doesn't believe I still play video games "at my age" with kids who would make comments about her. Anyway, she likes me for my mind:))

Full time job (i makes the $)

Disability (hence the need for XIM, not just a luxury - Thanks OBsIV)

I feel better that I am not near the oldest here.

forgot to mention, FULL BEARD since 30 years old. Scorp has me beat for volume and length (respect!) but I sit in a boardroom most of the day so it needs to be proper and business length.

Almost 70% of all members were born between the year 1969 and 1988.
