Retirement homes can cut down on staffing and should stock up on ergonomical control pads! (and diaphers...)

That is awesome. I know my replies in this post were light-hearted and possibily could be taken in a way unintended. (besides diverging from the OPs topic a bit). Just wanted to put this out there to let everyone know I fully support everybody who plays this game, regardless of age. I know in a few years I will be just like Thulcondar. Don't want my previous posts to be taken as disparaging against anyone because of their age.

I haven't knowingly run with or against anyone of this age group . Never really thought about it either before now. No reason why anybody of any age would/should not play, I fully intend to continue my computer games all my life.

Now, I'm trying to get my Mom to play. She is very computer savvy but she is resistant to this genre of game. Most likely because to play this game is necessarily more complicated and involved. It'll take a little practice and some new memory muscle skills to learn, but hey- everyone of us had to do that at some point. I'll keep pushing and cajoling, but trying to use Jedi mind tricks doesn't work well against ones own parent.

Today is my 50th birthday, and I've played mmorpg's since Everquest. I am a main healer and founder of my guild, and can be found pretty much every night in an ops group somewhere. I recently started writing fan ficiton, and love it. This is a great game for everyone, but I feel like the majority of the players are more mature than the ones I used to encounter in that other mmo community
Love is the strongest magic of them all.

I took no offense but if you come to Jung Ma and play Alliance, I am going to pound your...

Pandamonium rocks btw! Great guild with great people.

I think it's great that older people are playing this game. One of my closest friends is 62, and I met her in WoW. Haven't come across that many others yet in TOR, but I'm sure it will change as the game grows older.

We are not grandparents yet, but I am 45 and the little lady is 44. We have 50's on both sides, but these days mostly just play very casual due to work.

In the previous years we played SWG, Aion, WoW, tried GW and of course Tor.

Just thought I would add our age bracket and situation to the conversation.
