no one reads the intent of the thread, which was to question the non dev community! hah

open question: who thinks they are the oldest here? :P

I am a unicorn at 55...   though out and about, I get pegged as 40 something which is quite amazing, maybe it is the fresh mountain air of living in Neverland.

First RPG -  Wizardry on 5 1/4 floppy Apple IIe In Color!    78' or so
First real MultiPlayer PvP  - Myth II soulblighter with WWII Mods...   8 v 8 arena battles in 98'  that would still hold up to most players standards today...   los, physics, action combat in that you could juke and jive and cause misses, rolling grenades...

Who else played these relics?

I don't think I'm the oldest, but figure I'm up at the top of the list @ 51 +female makes me extraordinary! :)

Actually in the realm of MMOs you're statistically not that extraordinary. MMOs specifically trend toward much higher numbers of female players (in the 40%+ range for most MMOs) and in general trend more heavily toward older users. You may be surprised how many of the people around you share your demographic in many of the games you played and you simply assumed they were young men :)

And this is data from a study that's probably about ten years old now (or however long ago it was I had to write a paper on it), so you're probably in even more demographic company now than even those numbers suggested.

 

Edit: See, look, Frykka right there!

The MMOs that draw the female demographic are those where the avatars are highly customizable and well, "sexy". Don't see much of that in Crowfall. I have only met one other female player here. Not sure where you're getting your information, but females have always been the more rare demographic, especially in PvP oriented games.

In my experience in SWG, GW1, Shadowbane, GW2, and EVE, the membership of my own guild and guilds I have been a part of in said games, and any quick google search. Hey here's a few quick links:

https://www.dailydot.com/parsec/adult-women-largest-gaming-demographic/

https://www.statista.com/statistics/232383/gender-split-of-us-computer-and-video-gamers/

There are exactly four women among players in my guild playing crowfall right now, with another five waiting for soft launch (of a total 20) and this is similar to my past experiences in MMOs. Like I said, you may be less alone than you think :)

Last thing I binged on... well... I've been playing the Witcher 3 for a while now. That's all I can think of.

 If you were abducted and were greeted by aliens that told you you're the first human they've met, what would you say to them? Humanity is counting on you.
 

I need to get into the Witcher series; I've just got a ridiculous backlog of games I want to get through and it's been difficult trying to prioritize that list when new hotness comes out!

If I were abducted and greeted by aliens I would probably just say "Turn around, don't drown!" or ask them to take me along instead. Staying on Earth, or space travel with rando aliens, hmmmm tough decisions.

valkro, killer of threads...

Question for the Crows: Which CF community member would you most like to meet and why?

Gordan for sure . His time in the industry that i have grown up in makes him a god among men. He has been creating my hobby for nearly his entire life.

I would like to meet @Tinnis everytime when  we talked or he is writing something. I imagine him as a 18 years old nerd looking like Sheldon from big bang.( I know that he is older)

I'd actually like to meet Tark, if I could find the "Real" Tark from among on the clones.
