Not even old enough to spell correctly.

44 here, and CTO of a medium sized company. I've been playing MMO's for 15 years. Sadly, we now get to play with the WoW generation of gear check gamers that can't accomplish anything on their own merit.

Personally, I am 25, and have been playing MMOs since I was 12.

When World of Warcraft came out and I was 17 or 18 I got my Dad (who is now 62) to start playing them. He has been a big fan of WoW, Rift, and now SW:TOR.

Not that it bothers me. It keeps me young in mind and heart.

It got me to thinking, "How many others out there are like me?" I'm sure I'm not the oldest player out there. So, if you fall into the geriatric crowd within SWTOR, give a shout out with your age and profession. It will be cool to know who is out there.
48 here - own my own company and log on to be squashed regularly as a Republic Trooper and Jedi Knight. Great thread - nice to know that some Star Wars originals are around me who stood in line for the premier of New Hope.

Haha...excellent!

47 is considered Geriatric!??!?

I am 40+, Animation Director, but in this industry I am in, it would not surprise any of my coWorkers to know( and they do know!) that I play MMO's.

37, 2 kids, spouse, SW Developer. We're out there. It is a bit more common in my field. Always a little surpised when I find out one of our VPs or Directors is playing an MMO. Tough to talk about though, because of the opinions that people can have. I do find it is more accepted these days. I'm guilded up with some RL friends in the same age group. Some professers, astro physicists, IT guys like me...etc..
