Hey, what's age anyways..we're still all kids at heart. I've been playing these type games since, well..lets just say Johnson was President...thats LBJ..not Andrew Now that I have completed my 26 year term in the Army as an attack helo pilot (see..I even got to play real games and blow things up for a living), now I work on the Comanche program, get to fly the simulator weekly..more gaming..hehe..but the best part is, I get to work out of my house most of the time. So when I get tired of work..sitting here in my sweats gettin paid is certainly stressfull, I turn on a game or check the web. The funny thing is I don't really care for any of the flight simulators..I guess after really doing the real deal for so long, nothing can compare to it. But I do like SEIV and a host of others.

I'm 24, work at home as a freelance writer, and have too much time on my hands. I'm actually looking forward to the time when business picks up and I Don't have time for SE4.

30'ish, finished a 10 year stint in the navy keeping ships steaming, now am a network admin (read finally getting paid to be a computer geek) working on my masters in middle school education.

Always wanted to be a teacher, figured i pick a teaching age when the kids need assistance cocking automatics, seems safer to me LOL

I'm 56 and an aerospace engineer. Does that make me the official "Old Fart"?

I'm 42, and was a computer programmer when I was working, but am now living on disability benefits. Even without a job, I don't have enough time to play all the great games I have. I started collecting wargames in 1972, with Avalon Hill's 1914.

Good one Nitram.

I'm 16, still in High School, and have plenty of game playing time on my hands.
