Too old to be a Gamer?

Not a lot of people have given me a hard time about being 37 years old and still enjoying video games. But according to many on social media, it almost seems controversial to be a middle aged gamer, but the fact of the matter is, we make up a large majority of the gaming community. The average age of a gamer in today's world is around 36. So, there’s that.

The Positive Gamer Challenge

What is happening to the gaming community? Have we slipped into a never ending loop of toxicity? Sure, a little trash talk is commonly found in the competitive scene, but we have gone beyond that.

Once a common ground for people of all walks of life, we now simply hate one another. I have my fair share of ideas about the subject. What brought us here, why so many continue to insult and belittle one another.

I have certainly gotten used to the trolls and they really don’t bother me, but I’m not coming across any new friends either. This is what bothers me.

Honoring a Gamer upon death

The gaming community is many things. It can be a wonderful place where like minded gamers make friends and enjoy an entire landscape of art, fun, fantasy and so on. It can also be a toxic place for online trolls that prefer to make the experience miserable for all those around them, because misery loves company and trolls are clearly miserable. Am I right?

Video Games changed my life

At some point in time, every gamer out there receives their very first video game system. I’m not talking the first video game they have played or the system they played it on. I’m referring to the very first console that was officially their own. Whether it was a gift or personal purchase (usually a gift), it is a memory that resonates with many of us, as if it were just yesterday.

Gaming since the 80's

Being a little kid in the 1980’s was a wondrous time for video games, but it wasn’t until after the market crashed that the industry really became the staple it is today. It seemed like every store I walked in, had a standup arcade or pinball machine. While a quarter per play didn’t seem like much in the moment, arcade games had a way of draining my already tiny wallet, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

I am Gamer

I have lived and died so many times, saying I have lost count sounds like an understatement. Knowing I’ll be sprung back to life if I’m struck down, brings little comfort to me in the moment. I’ve been burned alive... shot, stabbed, drowned and more. All physically painless, I don’t even flinch. Like a moth to a flame, I’m attracted to the chaos, except I don’t burnout.
