Yeah, I'm doing A-levels right now. I'm doing English, History, French and AS-level Music. In fact, I'm just about to go and get some kip, coz I have an English exam first thing in the morning.

What A-levels are you taking, Wardz?

21.

Turn 22 on 07/23/2001.

I don't have any kids yet, which is suprising enough. I should be attending U of L or IU(IUS), this fall, if I'm fortunate. Eventually I hope to head to Full Sail and join in on their game designing program.

Hell, that was a surprise! And I thought I was getting too old for games...I'm 24!

By the way, there is no legal age for someone to drink alcohol here in Greece, as long as you don't drink and drive...

Yeah, but you'll find it's far less fun when you can do it legally.

I was at school on the day of my 18th birthday, but I was down the pub within 10 minutes of school finishing, for my first legal pint. But it just wasn't the same

OK here's some info on PC gamer demographics:

In 2000, of the most frequent Computer game players:

28% are less 18 years old
30% are between 18 and 35 years old
42% are over 35 years old.

So it looks like the geezers are the most common PC gamers.

See the IDSA 2000-01 State of the Industry Report (Adobe Acrobat Required).

From this month's Computer Gaming World:

40--Percentage of computer gamers that are women
27--Percentage of console gamers that are women
15--Percentage chance that IDSA makes this stuff up
48--Percentage of Myst players that are women

10--Percentage of CGW who are women
50--Percentage of CGW editors who scream like girls
10--Percentage of CGW editors who throw like girls

Pretty interesting stuff, I must say.

Well, never thought of myself as an old geezer before...but I'll be joining that 42 per cent statistic next year.

Although I'm not worried at all by age, or age differences, I do think a lot about how things are going to change. After all, I'm twice the age of some of the people in this thread...so I got to thinking about what games are going to be like in another 17 years (assuming we don't have some major catastrophe with civilisation as we know it).

I really can't imagine what it will be like.

I mean, the first electronic game that I ever owned was a pint-sized version of Space Invaders (wonder what ever happened to that...hmmm...) I can't remember when exactly that was, either, but I know it was quite some time ago...well before the age of consoles, anyway...

The first game I remember playing on a PC (which I believe was an 8086), was Sopwith. Basic CGA graphics (I think there were 4 colours, but I can't be sure). It ran smooth off a 5.25 inch floppy disk (formatted for 360k of course!) The size of the prog was probably under 10k. I seem to recall it ran at something like 4Mhz. When we upgraded the comp to a 80286, Sopwith became unplayable - because it ran too damned fast. That was around 1987-88 (I think).

I remember being introduced to Eye Of The Beholder II around 1991, and compared to what I had been playing, it blew me away with it's graphics, interface, and story.

Now look where we are. Waiting for JKII, with in-game graphics that put yesteryear's CGI pre-rendered animations to shame.

With the way technology is moving at the moment, in 17 years I can imagine the PC as a gaming platform disappearing, to be replaced with a go-anywhere device that looks like some cool wraparound spectacles, giving you a full 180 degrees of virtual gaming mayhem, which allows you to vid-conf with multiple people on different parts of the planet simultaneously, and which you can turn off to become a pair of neat sunglasses.

It's certainly becoming a possibility, with cheap, ultra-high density storage, ultra-long life batteries, super-fast low voltage CPUs etc all in the pipeline for the near future, let alone nearly two decades hence.

What do you people think you'll be playing on, with, when you get to my age? Just curious...

Sorry for not posting my age sooner. You can blame the school system! (Exams).

I turned 17 in April. The first thing I announced at school on my Bday was exactly as fallows:
"ONE MORE YEAR TILL LEGAL DRINKING!"

Okay, so what I said is not completly true. Up here in CANADA our wonderful "too strong for Americans" beer is only legal (in Ontario) at age of 19. However, since I do live incredibly close to the province of Québec I don't complain.

God bless Québec for the corner stores that sell beer for allmost nothing without bothering checking your ID! . *sniff* It just brings a tear to my eye.

Hey StormHammer, can you say cyberpunk?!!!
When I remember my days with Amstrad and then think that with my new job I'm planing on buying a Sony LCD projector for my PC I get dizzy...!
I cannot even imagine what I'll be playing in 17 years from now and that's not because I don't have enough imagination...
All I can think of is that massive multiplayer games will dominate the gaming world with reallife quality graphics and incredibly realistic gameworlds. As for the way these games will be playable..., I don't know but my guess is that it won't be with keyboards or even Vagabonds craziest dream of game controllers...
And although many people are affraid of this evolution of technology that is called Virtual Reality and have good reasons to do so, I CANNOT WAIT FOR IT!!!
