I've always been pretty bad at MMO PvP, even when playing UO at 12 and 13, but it was more about not being too great at multi-tasking. When I ran into a Player Killer I'd usually sort of freeze up and wasn't able to think clearly enough to balance the combat, healing, and movement.

Because my multi-tasking wasn't great (also pretty poor at RTS Multiplayer) I had thought of myself as excellent at FPS games. With these it was more about pure focus, reflex, and anticipation. For many years I was quite good at them but now at 27 I do find that I pretty much get my ass handed to me whenever I play them the same way I used to. Before I'd play these games almost entirely with a short distance 1-hit kill weapon like a shotgun, but now I can only really enjoy them with a Sniper Rifle from a distance. I can still anticipate where someone might go or when they'll pop up, but I I don't really have the reflexes anymore or especially the focus to shoot them before they shoot me. At least Sniping gives me time to line up a shot.


I also recently discovered that now, seemingly out of the blue, I enjoy the taste of licorice. I honestly could never stomach the stuff before. What's happening to me!?

My only "older gamer" effect is vision issues (i.e. these reading glasses).

But that one's pretty normal.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

Yeah OP, I have noted a decline. Ten years ago I could “whirly-gig” around in mouse turning melee combat with the absolute best of them but now? I am way slower and I notice it. I can’t keep up with the pace of the leet melee kids and sometimes my eyes blur when my screen is full of particle effects making it harder to track mine enemy. It’s lead me to want to play more ranged classes with solid CC to be competitive. I refuse to stoop to buying special keyboards and mice to be competitive as it feels like another kind of pay to win.

 

It has bothered me in GW2 recently with fighting thieves and mesmers in WV3. Some of those thieves vanish in and out of stealth so rapidly I can’t target and when I do its cleared with every re-stealth. Might ought to just go ele for a change and stand in a perma meteor storm. And when a bunch of mesmer clones are exploding I can’t see any detail around. LOL... I manage to compete. But I feel so old now for it. Makes me sad. Dogged little munchkins and their dual daggers.

50 this year

i guess reflex's arent as fast or as accurate as they used to be, but then im not sure they ever were

but i still enjoy playing FPS games so i guess im not quite over the hill yet, and while my K/D ratio in PS2 isnt that awesome, its not completely awful either, on the other hand i no longer spend half the night playing games either

I am shocked at how many other players are older gamers.  I always lied about my age in games because I was too embarrassed to admit that I was in my 40's.  Thought they'd think I was some kind of creepo.  I'm so glad that I am not alone.  All of you guys are creepo's too.

My reflexes and eyes are showing signs of aging. I have always had problems with the awkward left hand position on the wasd keys. Since i bought the Razer Nostromo however, my gaming has improved and with the customization you can make this device into whatever you need for a game. I love it and highly reccomend getting one if you play a lot. Your left hand will thank you for it.

 

 

They have a newer version called "Orbweaver" whoever came up with that crappy name should be fired. Anyways, the new one looks just as nice, but they removed the mouse wheel for an additional row of keys. I might get it eventually.

A G13 left hand pad, a Logitech MMO mouse, and a G110 keyboard. I prefer the Logitech over the Razer (which I also have) because the buttons are canted in a pattern and they are easier for me to locate. 

 

 

my exact setup, unfortunately I find myself getting too slow to use the G13 anymore even

Im going keyboard/mouse combo on most things

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

52 and I prefer twitch style combat.  As long as it isn't FPS combat.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

No way!

Im 45, been gaming all my life, and I am currently playing Planetside 2. I have no problems keeping up, and my k/d ratio is avg to good.

I think the key is staying active. I always have some kind of project going, and I have hobbies the keep my mind sharp. I dont use fancy keyboards or mouse. Just pure willpower.

Well getting older slows us down, but how many oldies here are staying in shape? If your body is in shape your mind can endure more. Why do you think we can't keep up with those kids? They are in the best shape of their lives. You can also combine getting/staying in shape with eye hand coordination training.

If you just sit on your ass all day you get slower, also on a keyboard ;)
