    Just found the site on Facebook and signed up. I am 53 and my wife tells me that I am too old for video games to which I politely reply that age ain't nothin' but a number!! Recently purchased a PS4 (still have my PS3, too!) Love playing Fallout series (playing Fallout 4 on the PS4 and Fallout New Vegas on the PS3), Assassin's Creed (Syndicate and Black Flag), Arkham Knight, The Witcher 3, Destiny, and many others actually. I work for the Department of State and am currently assigned in Eastern Europe. My PSN ID is yt_dragon so drop a note here or on-line!

    Welcome Mr @yt_dragon!
    I can see that we don't play the same games (I mostly play Battlefront and Battlefield), but it's always nice with a new face!

    Welcome to Senior Gamers, @yt_dragon :wave:

    You are definitely not too old for video games! Gaming keeps your mind active and young, you tell her that! Oh and you're not the oldest here either. :)

    So, you found us via Facebook? How did you come across us on there? I think you're the first person who has discovered us via that.

    We've got a bunch of folks here who play on the PS4 and some still play on the PS3 too. You have a good selection of games to keep you going there. :) I'm enjoying Fallout 4 (I've played Black Flag and that was fun). I played Destiny but stopped that a while back but there's a bunch of folks who still play it especially with the new content. Warframe is my personal favourite (800+ hours, though not as much as @WetPaintGaming who has 2000+ hours and I think @Skarpar has around the same too) - it's a free game too, worth a try if you haven't already. Star Wars Battlefront is well played by a bunch around here too. Battlefield has it's die-hards like @Bogus4Real. :)

    A bunch of us are from the UK but we also have some European members as well as a few in the US and in New Zealand, so hopefully you should find some of us gaming at the same time as you.

    Anyway, have a look around the site and feel free to join in both here and online. :)

    Hello and welcome @yt_dragon I'm one of the few remaining Destiny die-hards, my main game at the moment.
    Not really got into Fallout, but I did have another go at Fallout 3 last night on the PS3. I think it's going to take a while to get used to the mechanics and I did think the graphics were quite meh, but then it is quite an old game now! I have New Vegas still in the shrink wrap as well.
    Make yourself at home and I'll probably see you about!

    Hi mate and welcome to the Seniors. I'm ever so nearly 48 myself and I never give being too old a second thought. Friends request in the post.
