Is it just me or is there a lot of old gamers, more than younger

You would think as time grows we pick up more younger crowds. but the old heads are hanging in here. Reading some of the topics here(sign if you are married and have a life) these guys have to be over 30 and pushing 40. I guess the 19-26 gamers are more on the casual side of gaming while your 30 and above guys stick to the roots of hardcore gaming.

Either that or gamefaq is the place for old people

How old are you again? I'm 17 and young as a bird at birth not able to even fly yet!!

99.99% of all topics/posts here say otherwise. It seems to me this place has far more ignorant/childish/hateful users, acting like children fighting day in and out about the most ridiculous things thn actual adults discussing ps3 related topics in a civilised manner

There are more older gamers but quite honestly with the way some act around here you'd figure they were the kids.

I know tons of people who are under 30 and married lol, that comment is pretty dumb.

And it's not really that gamefaqs is populated by older people, it's more that gamefaqs is populated by RPG fans.... since RPG's tend to not draw in the younger crowd anymore.... well i'm sure you can see where I'm going with this.

Most younger gamers are to busy playing CoD or WoW to post on a message board.

19-26 is a large part of gaming's demographic. More so than the 30+ years people you'll find on a forum.

Btw, I'm 19, but I grew up on 3rd gen systems and onwards. Does that mean I'm casual? Whatever 'casual' is lol.

25 here and I have been gaming since the original NES

there are plenty of younger gamers on par with the older.

you just do not see them posting on message boards cause they have not grown up enough to spew out the idiocy that you see on these boards
