Welcome to Old Video Gamer's!
I've been playing computer and video games a little while now... started in the early 1980s on a Sinclair ZX81. Compared to 15-year-olds and Korean gaming pros, I'm definitely an old geezer... far from retirement but not nearly fast enough to avoid getting whooped online by youngsters with lightning reflexes...
I play the occasional game (so don't expect a post a day), oldies, more recent blockbusters, not so serious casual fun. I'm not an IT person, a celebrity or an activist, just an average Old Video Gamer with an average daily routine. I travel a fair amount and I look for games to take me traveling to new destinations and stories too.
I like my games innovative, interesting, fun to play and somewhat relaxed... A good story is important. But I don't dig head or heart wrenching real world dramas... Blowing up people mindlessly or surviving zombie terror is not my idea of fun (in real life or in gaming life).
Mostly I thought I'd share some of the video games I come across here and there and that other old video gamers may like too.
Reviews are usually written within six months of game publication, using my own hard earned gold. I've also asked some old video gaming friends of mine to contribute the occasional review.
How the Old Video Gamer likes his tipple:
I try to keep my reviews simple and short but I tend to blurb...
Story: A good tale or yarn, interesting characters and brave new worlds to discover.
Playability: Simple to get into with tutorials that ease players into the right mood.
Annoyance: Being an old video gamer, I don't have the skills and the patience to time keyboard combos to the millisecond, nor the perseverance to repeat the feat twenty times to get through a level.
Beauty: Games pleasing to the eyes, with great acting and cool tunes are digital works of art.
Price: I'm a value gamer. It depends how much you pay for a game. Some games are worth a lot more than the 3 dollars you have to part with.
