Leaderboard: The age range of Massively OP’s core audience

    
291

Massively OP reader Nordavind inspired this week’s Leaderboard in the comments of our Daily Grind about the age range of the people in the MMOs we all play. “The real question is, how is the age distribution here on MOP?” Nordavind wrote. “To the pollmobile!”

I have a pretty good idea how this poll is going to go thanks to analytics, but then again, there’s a difference between the people who read and click… and the people who actually comment and vote, especially on the weekends. Plus I know how easy it is to confuse Google on age and gender (the Goog had me pegged as a 20-year-old male for a long time since, you know, women don’t play video games.).

So howsabout it? How old are you? Do we skew old or young or somewhere in between?

How old are you?

Cyroselle hey, firstI’m sorry I coudn’ come back to this conversation earlier, it’s quite busy here for me.
I think you get me wrong: that thing, that golden age, happened in France just as the Velvet Underground happened in the US but very rare are the French artists in this whole lot as they were coming from all over the world. Of those I have named only Giraud (Moebius) is French – now okay he was the master Yoda in this thing and that’s why Hayao Miyazaki became his padawan (he told in an excellent documentary filmed at his studio). There were many Italians: Liberatore, Manara, Pratt. . French: Moebius , Druillet, Charlier,.. .And Americans like Richard Corben, Vaughn Bodé, Barry Windsor-Smith.. Brazilians (Macedo), Swiss (Ceppi), Dutch (Swarte), Belgian (the illustrious Shuiten), and the ho famous Enki Bilal of course, French but of Yougoslavian origin, and I named just a few. It was something international happening there only because some guys started that thing there and many writers and illustrators decided to join to work and meet with people like them not to mention that the culture of comics was very much in advance in this place compared to the rest of the world and they could find an audience there. Look, I produced tours and show for many bands and DJs from the USA too and at a moment they received an audience they didn’t have in America yet till the public caught up there. Many times it’s the inverse, there are things that are in the US and take a lot of time to come to Europe. I was one of the first skaters to compete here in France and one of the very first 5 guys to ride a snowboard here for example and damn we were late compared to US riders. Things pops where they have to no matter the place and often they become international rather quickly and people gather from all the earth to the place to be till it dies naturally.

Voila, now be sure I’ll look at the names you gave me as soon I got some free time only for me and I’m avid to know more. About MOP, yeah I reiterate: there’s a need to my eyes to have more adults oriented games for being able to write about. Not about the complexity of the systems but the writing and illustration(? art design?).

breetoplay SallyBowls1 thatchefdude Pashgan Yup, for a while I was part of that. Even attended a female eve player round table at one of the Fanfests many years back. 
You just get way too much shit from other Eve players if they find out you’re female to the point where you can’t even play or do your in-game job because of the bullshit. As a result most of the female eve players I knew never mentioned they were female, and did not mark themselves as such when it came to player polls – and I absolutely do not blame them one bit. There’s a few more female eve players than the official numbers show, but it’s still a fairly underrepresented minority. Big can of worms.

Cyroselle wolfyseyes Because then someone would check once for how old they are and once for how old they feel (and once on elf butts because who can resist that?).

Turned thirty-one on the twentieth. I don’t sigh because I’m thirty-one, I sigh because I don’t feel thirty-one! I’m still that twelve year old kid that writes his own stories and is really into games, etc. Of the people in my life, half of them game and half of them wouldn’t understand! Haha!
