How Old are You? Cause You Still Look Good!

You the know conception out there in the non-Gaming world . . . Gamers are teen slacker nerds who can't get a date.
We know that ain't the truth, I had a date a couple years ago.
And we know that people who game young, don't switch to bridge or cribbage on their thirtieth birthday.
And we know that as you get a little more mature, well maybe not mature, but just plain older, you get to put that experience and wisdom to work in higher paying jobs. And then you can buy the really cool gear;

Not many 18 year olds can afford gear like that.

So I know a Forum is not a mirror of the games population, but would give us an idea. At the IL2 Sturmovik Forum the average age turned out to be around 35, and ar World of Tanks it was more like 40, which was a surprise.

I've met PapyBriezh1957 and Grampa1963 online, but I got both of them beat . . . In fact, I bet I am the oldest regular on the forum, an just maybe the oldest player of the Game. (and I'm bragging about this? :roflol: I need counseling.)
Born in 1952, I am 61.
Much older than that and you missed the whole electronic toy thing.

I think there are older TM players than you but you are maybe the older guy to visit these forums :wink:
I know some French players who are not so young and I knew a very active guy, Lepapa (unfortunately he has passed on) who was over 60 as well.

I had been contacted by an old video games player by email. He was playing on Virtual Skipper 4 and was 83 :D
As he couldn't go sailing because of his advanced years, he was very happy to sail online and thanked us for having created VSK. It's one of the kindest email that I ever received. I thanked him very much for his message.

I'd be happy to know that I'm not the oldest online . . . coincidentally, I too play VSK after sailing San Francisco Bay competitively for years. I can still drive but leave the grinding to someone else.

Papyves is 60+ years old and Dédé is 75 (born in 1938).
Dédé is the oldest TrackMania player I know.

That's really fun to know that TrackMania can be played players of any age :)
I know Papyves but didn't know Dédé.

I don´t know who is the eldest player, but I know that my little brother startet to play Trackmania with 4 years :roflol:

He wasn´t really good (not surprising at the age of 4....) but he tried it.

Maybe he was the youngest^^

My nephew was three years old when he tried TrackMania. He could only go forward / back but was very merry when his car goes into the water.

Good idea for trial tracks ^^
