When did you start playing games and how old is everyone?

Also what is your favorite videogame?


I started on Pong in the arcade. My first home console was a pong console in 1976, when I was 4. I'm almost 41 now, so that's 36 years.

Favorite game? The Mass Effect Series. If I have to pick one - Mass Effect 3.

16 yrs ago I got my gaming habit started on a Playstation with 2Xtreme. Can you believe I actually liked that game back then? I'm 24 now.


I don't think I ever played 2xtreme but I used to play the hell out of Xtreme Games and loved it. One of my first PSone games along side Street Fighter Alpha.

around 10 years. I think i started gaming in the 5-7 year old range. I'm 16 btw.

Im pretty sure i started at 7. Now im 35. Can't believe its been almost 30 years of wasting so much time, but hell, escaping reality is still totally worth it.

Started playing when I was 5 or 6 with Pong. Moved on to the Atari 2600, then NES, SNES, PS1, N64, PS2, XBOX1, XBOX 360. I had a Sega Saturn for a hot second too, but I never got too far into that.

I am 37 now. I thought I was the old one here. I am glad to see some 40somethings still at it!

I don't have a set favorite game, but some of my favorite games/series are:

Forza
Mass Effect
The Aki N64 wrestling games
Any pre-EA Bioware RPG
GTA and Saint's Row (yes, it's possible to love both series!)
Def Jam: FFNY
Pro Wrestling (NES)....RIP Wayne...miss you bro!)

Huh... I started at the arcades, and played at friend's houses. I started playing when I was 4 or 5, 38 now, so that's how long. I don't even remember what our first platform at home was. We had a computer that used cassette tapes, I remember that.
