Ok, who's the oldest gamer here?

I'm 68 and it's getting harder to manipulate the controller and keep up with the action.

I'm reduced to puzzle games, trivia and whatever that's easy.

Getting old sucks.

How did you know?

Yep, it was a TI 99/4A back in the early 80s.

Damien, I hope Woody's ok too.

I'm 44 (young compared to some I guess )

The only game I really play is World of Warcraft on and off and that requires a lot of quick thinking and action with the keyboard and mouse, oh and the occasional bit of GTA5 when my daughter lets me near the Ps4..

I believe I'm one of the youngest here. There's probably someone even younger though!

Actually, forget woody57 at 95 years young... it seems that Photon is the eldest here at the ripe old age of 104

In other words, you hate the timer like I do.

By the way, check out the PC game, 4 Elements II. 4 Elements I is fun too but it's timed. 4E II is not.

Not me, I was born in 1962 so that makes me 56 and counting, but I lost count after 10 because I'm too fat and can't see my toes

It is initially then gets repetitive when you're solving the same types of puzzles over and over with just a bit of variation, the use of the environment to get clues was clever but only a few places did that. The environment itself is amazing enough, lots of places to go and things to see but the damn puzzles just got too repetitive for me to carry on!

Or are we talking about Infocoms 'The Witness' and not the one on PC
