Well, I found your site by googling "Senior Gamers"; I was actually looking for the over 50 crowd, but I figured seniors might relax the 65+ rule for a disability pensioner at 61. I had no clue that 'Senior Gamers' were only 25 and up...really, who knew? So yes, I would like to be a full member of the group.
Anyway, that's me; I'm 61, a retired (on disability) former sailor in the Canadian Navy. I like shooters, sims and RPGs, mostly....in pretty much that order.
.....and RockBand/Guitar Hero are sims...of a sort.
I do like the shooters, and I like them best when my tag is not consistently at the bottom of the board, after every game. When I started playing COD2, you know, I wasn't too bad, really; give me a Lee-Enfield, Garand, or Bren, and I did OK; top 1/3, sometimes down halfway, playing online against my three sons & their friends (they called me "Boom, Headshot!" Instead of "Dad" when they got on a hot streak).
I started gaming some time ago, to distract myself from pain; first on PS2, the XB360, then Wii, PS3, then XB1&PS4.
Not counting PSP or Nintendo DS....
....or PS1, NES & Super Nintendo ; 'cause I don't game on-line on portables (except iPad/pod/phone), or the earlier consoles, (or PCs), and I didn't use those for pain control.
Really, I started gaming in 1973 on Pong; first played it in a café in Amsterdam. Then again as a console in '83. Got an NES IN '88 (for the kids), & their grandfather got them (& me) a Super Nintendo in '94; we skipped the Sega & the 64, & went for the Playstation next, playing a lot of PC-based games as well.
The first connected console I played was an XBox 360, and it hooked me; not "it", but the games: COD2 and Project Gotham Racing multiplayer.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to meeting more people in my skill range; that is to say: old, slow, with poor eyesight & worse hand-eye coordination, somewhat impaired by chronic pain and drugs to treat chronic pain.
TTFN &
"Have a day"

Hello and welcome! So what consoles do you have currently? Xbox 360 / 180 (sorry "one"), PS3 and PS4? I have xbox 360, PS3 and PS4 so I guess we should at least have one console and a handful of games in common somewhere.

Do you have any of the Battlefield games? COD isn't very popular here. I stopped after MW3.

Anyhow feel free to send me a friends request if you feel so inclined (I have Steam as well)

Welcome to our little corner of the internet, @Brew the CSE :waving:

It's good to see that we're now top of the search results for "Senior Gamers" :D

Hopefully you've read the About Us section. Yes, we are for 25+ which must seem pretty young to you ;) but don't worry, many of us are older than that. Generally the age is 30s to 40s (I'm in the latter) and we do have some in their 50s and 60s. We've also got @Acegadgets who is around 130. :lol: Most of us are from the UK and Europe, but we do have some members from the US and @Sportsvee, our dynamic duo from New Zealand. Hopefully you'll get to game with us despite the time difference.

So, how did you come about your PSN ID?

Do you have a PS3, a PS4 or both? We have a mixture in the community, with some having moved onto the next gen consoles whilst others remain on the plenty-of-life-in-it-yet PS3.

What games are you currently playing? Regular games with the Seniors currently are BF4, Killzone Shadow Fall and GTA Online. We're always open to suggestions for other events though, whether they be regular or one-off.

It's good to hear you're after full membership. :) For this, we ask that you play online with us with comms so we can chat and have a laugh whilst gaming. Then if you've not been put off, we can sort full membership after this. Comms is useful besides socialising, it makes a difference with games like BF4.

Anyway, take a look around, feel free to join in any discussions and I hope to see you online soon. :)

Cracking intro by the way. Sounds like you lucked out, as we're all old farts who are crap at games (I'm 46 btw).

Feel free to bung me friends request and I'll accept it when I get home. Look forward to a game or two.

Welcome Brew, make yourself at home. With my 33 years I'm one of the young ones here. But no need to worry, I can't hit a barn door.

Hiya Brew!

44 in 2 weeks, so still a whipper snapper in comparison to you, but what I lack in age I make up for in terrible hand eye coordination and general ability to run headfirst into bullets. I am 99% on BF4 when I do get online (late nights most evening).

So ex Canadian Navy, does this mean you are based in Canada now, or are you now on the right side of the Atlantic? ;)

Hope to see you online soon!

Hi Brew, I wouould imagine that if they got rid of me the average age of the seniors would go down from about 40 to 35 as I am the only Senior that can boast that they lived in the1950,s.
Most of us as mentioned are English speaking Europeans ( except Spruijt} who communicates with us using Google translate.
We pretty much all are playstationers although I try to get them into more sophisticated P C games its a difficult task.
If you are a PlayStation user who is likely to be aboot during your morning time then I would gladly play a few games with you. I currently am addicted to Warframe PS 4, like Battlefied 4 and probably won't be playing much else till Watchdogs comes out.

:waving:Thanks to all for the kind welcome;
In answer to the questions you've asked me, yes, I am based in Canada; the best (or left) coast, in Victoria, British Columbia, aka British California. The ID is from Brew(ster), which has been a nickname forever, and CSE for Weapons Engineering Officer, (or Combat Systems Officer in the RCN.)
Games by console: PS4 => Battlefield 4, Assassin's Creed 4, as well as Warframe, Blacklight Retribution, and Pinball.
XBOX 1: Call of Duty Ghosts and Forza Motorsport 5.
PS4: Battlefield 3, COD MW3, Gran Turismo 5, the Last of Us, the Uncharteds, and a hockey-sock full of the premium freebies. ... Oh, and Batman Arkham City (which I have not played yet).

XBOX360: all CODs (xcpt Ghosts), all of the BFs (xcpt 4), Forza 2/3/4/Horizon, Ghost Warfighter 1 & 2, Gears of War 1 & 2, Medal of Honor Airborne & ??, Gads, but they go on....bunch of RPGs, other racing games, and a few flight sims: Ace Combat 6 & 7, TC's Hawx 1&2, IL2, Birds of Prey, and Over-G Fighters (still the very best).
Anyway, guess I'll pop on and send a few friend requests back at you fine folk.
TTFN &
Have a day:|

Ola Brewski. Glad you still have the ps3 (I'm guessing that was a typo above) as we haven't all been converted to (or able to afford) the PS4 - although I am sure it will happen eventually.

Hopefully catch you online. Oh & I am currently 40 going on 20...

Well I had a very brief game of BF4 with Brew tonight but the lag on Naval Strike was super "badder" than normal and being somewhat unreasonable to me so I poked it I the eye and run off (alright I had a strop and switched it off). Hopefully catch you again though another time!

Sorry @Brew the CSE , I did not realise you where in my game (Operation Mortar) when I left the first time. And when I joined back it seemed like you where on your way out again, so let's hope for better luck next time :)

Yes, I tried to join you, but once I was in the fame, couldn't find you, and my mic/earpiece don't seem to work consistently...either it's not working well, or no one is talking.
Hope to catch you sometime, TTYL.

Hope to, yes; wasn't able to find you in the game...probably me not knowing the game well enough to join a specific player. Next time; pretty sure that there will be one.
