I’m pretty sure that PlanetPhillip.Com has a higher average age than most gaming sites. Regular readers will know that grey gaming is something that interests me, not just because I am a “going grey gamer” but because of the idea that gaming was only for youngsters.
So, last night I was watching my town’s annual parade, where people from the town dress up in themed costumes and walk, dance, roll, jump, “fly” and skip along the streets. The last “float” was full of wrinkles and it was very funny.
That got me thinking, at 45 I am definitely not the oldest player and I know a few PP readers are in their 60s and 70s, but how old IS the oldest FPS player. Would make a great story.
So, here is the deal….
Let’s find the oldest FPS player in the world.
The only “rules” are they must play regularly, say at least twice a week and they must have been playing for at least 3 months. Any FPS game counts, SP or MP, it doesn’t matter.
Ask around, post on your favourite forums (don’t forget to check back here), send emails, tweet it, FaceBook, podcasts, ask friends, colleagues, ANYTHING, but let’s start looking.
I will interview, assuming they agree, the person and see if we can get a story going, maybe even something in some national newspaper and some of the bigger sites.
