That's a LIE, Haids -- I'm never aging past 25!

You know I'm playing.  8) *sighs...* I guess there can be... two... awesome events in 1987. No others allowed.  :thumbsup:

Well, Haids did come to defend you... but unfortunately, the awesome event count maxes out at 2 in 1987. :)

I apologize. :-P

Maybe you should contact the government about changing your birth year. :D

I was born in 1987 as well so that definitely makes two awesome events and one INCREDIBLE event!

EDIT: My birth is only one event. :P

What the BLEEP. What's the deal with people being my age on here... I remember about five years ago, everyone was WAY older me on adventure game forums.

You know... I do believe media sources that say that people in their teens and twenties are the ones that reject and don't play adventure games are DEAD wrong.

Wooooooooooo! :jester:

I always find it interesting when people here are younger than me.  I think of adventure gaming as a "my" generation thing, not something these wee little lads and lasses would even know about.

Doon is just overly awesome, proving me wrong. ;D

I am 18 and have been playing adventure games for at least like 10 or 11 years.

started with KQV.

yeah the adventure genre may not be mainstream any more but it's not dead.

You know... I do believe media sources that say that people in their teens and twenties are the ones that reject and don't play adventure games are DEAD wrong.
I think we may be the exception rather than the rule, though (22, btw). A forum dedicated to adventure games is going to be likely to attract those in the teen-twenty range who do enjoy adventure games, but I would assume that there are more who are into Halo, WoW, Half-Life and games that have high-quality graphics, lots of action and console versions.
Not that there's anything wrong with those games (I love Half-Life and its sequels), but when games that are more action-oriented are the trend, people will tend to follow it. I think this is especially true because people will tend to do what their peers do because it's "cool."
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

I find that the people that have heard of/played/enjoyed/etc KQ are usually about a half a generation older than me, so early-, mid-thirties

MUWHAHAHAHAHA  :devil:
