• Welcome to Senior Gamers!

    Senior Gamers [SNR] is a community for mature gamers formed in 2012. We started as PlayStation gamers but now we are fully multi-platform with members also playing on PC, Xbox, Switch and other platforms.

    We used this website from June 2012 until March 2020. Technology moved on during this time and we have now moved to Discord. If you are familiar with it already you'll know how quick and easy it is to use. If you haven't tried it yet, you really should!

Potential for me to be able to go as it's about 2hr 30 min drive for me. However after having made Mr Plax go to Eurogamer a few years ago, he now resolutely refuses to come with me to things like this.

LOL, not quite although he still occasionally brings up the fact that you introduced yourself with your PSN names. He's not a gamer so doesn't understand.......
I think the whole thing was just totally alien to him. Getting dragged about to look at games and stalls etc is just not his cup of tea. Didn't help that the place we stayed was on par with student accommodation either. He still goes on about that as well. On the bright side I am now no longer allowed to be in charge of booking any accomodation when we go away.
