People think gaming is for the youth. But think about this for a second. In the 1970's video games first gained popularity. If the programmers of that era were in the 30s and 40s, they are now 70-90 years old. And gamers of that era are now over 50.
I fit that latter category. I'm coming up on 60 and I probably spend more time gaming than I do anything else. I've loved it ever since I played my uncle's Magnavox Odyssey game console. I was hooked. Then in the 70s my dad bought a video arcade and I had unlimited access to every game in the place. Only the loss of my hands or sight would stop me from playing.
I am Tirabi in almost every game I play. I am Tirabi.
