I do play alot of FPS games, so my twitch stays frosty.  I don't use any fancey mouse or Keyboard, just standard fare.. a regular ole 101 KB and 5 button mouse.  I have no problems being at the top of the heap in BF3 , Chivalry, etc. 

GW2 and Tera are just more icing on the cake.  Games like this keep my reflexs sharp.

haha, would those around you say you haven't slowed down?  I am guessing 'your' answer will be 'no' so don't worry.  

lol well sure there is that... the devil is in the details and all that.  Sometimes you feel like you lose a step but, thank god I'm not playing COD or anything in console land to make myself feel ancient as I get facerolled by some 10yr olds screaming the latest fould langauge they learned at school. :)

Mate, you want to see my latest effort to keep fit, pulled so many muscles it hurts to sit here responding to you.  

That just shows how dedicated you are to these forums.  As a gamer you can't be bothered by little things like pulled muscles, a sore back, arthritis, carapule tunnel, young kids bouncing on your junk.  You grit your teeth, you suck down a bottle of asprin, slap on some Heatpads and fire up that PC and bring the pain!

Well was using beer as a painkiller, what is latin for that?

Try being in your 40's AND having australian latency (avg 300 ping).

Thats why I like my Lotro.

Playing: Lotro, DOTA2, ESO, Darkfall
Also played and worth mentioning: UO, WoW, Lineage2

I know I'm only 30, but I use a Naga and Nostromo from Razer and I can easily compete with almost anyone.

I'm 25 now and i've definitely noticed my hand eye coordination and response time getting slower.  I was at my peak when I was 16-17.  I could join a match in Counterstrike and just demolish the room, constantly getting headshots.  Same with Unreal Tournament 2k4 - I could join rooms and just demolish whole guilds.  I sometimes played with the bigboys who were in leagues and tournaments and I was never as good as they were, but I definitely could dominate in public rooms. 

I stopped gaming when I was a freshman in college.  I started gaining a little more weight, stopped playing sports, and basically when I went back to gaming, I just wasn't as dominate as I was - mmorpgs pvp included.

It sounds silly to say, but i'm a wiser gamer now; i'll take the time to learn the mechanics and then play rather then just dive in and grasp everything at a frantic pace - but my overall skill has definitely dropped.  I think being physically fit along with playing competitive sports again might improve things.

I'm 41. Played competitive PvE and PvP in WoW for 7 years and later in TOR with no problems, doing quite well. Then i started LoL and boy i was in for a nasty surprise. This game is all about fast thinking and fast action / reaction and although i try real hard i just can't keep up with some of the 20 or 25 year old lads i play with or against. Even when choosing a champion with no skill-shot abilities my performance is just mediocre and sometimes my teammates yell at me because i do costly mistakes. It seems that i can't put my mind and reactions in overdrive any more like some years back. However i am quite stubborn and i keep on pushing and trying.

I can't say its all that I have slowed down or gotten old, I know for a fact a large portion of it is that I just don't care enough to try to keep up.

I used to get mad when I died in DAoC and was actually trying to kill folks, now I find more often than not I go into a BG, give it the ol' college effort to survive, take a guy out, die, shrug, watch TV for a couple minutes, then remember I'm still in PvP and go out again.

I like PvP and I like learning my classes, I just don't have enough competitive spirit left to stay on top of all effort people put into their games anymore.  Give me a template and I'll learn to use it without asking why it works.

With games like GW2 I gave effort in WvW but in PvE I barely could be bothered to dodge, let alone dance around like a fool for every kill.

I do like GW2's limited keybinds though, I also can't seem to be bothered to spider-finger around 40 hotkeys either lol.

Maybe I am just a slow lazy old fart.

In my teens and early twenties I was quite fast, but I had lousy, lousy accuracy. To make up for it, I learned to play the tactical or long game (especially with FPS deathmatches later on). I learned to dominate the map, work up some good sense of sound, develop useful deathmatch ESP and practically bore my opponents into defeat! :) I used to win hour-long deathmatches with scores like 1-0 or something, haha.

I still try to do the same in any game, which means in MMOs I try to make up for the lack of twitch & accuracy skills with knowledge of mechanics and use of terrain. But the truth is, when you face another player that does the same and has top-notch twitch to boost, you're pretty much toast. :) Because even for control play you still need good shooting and dodging (or movement or positioning) skills, or a good player will take you down with even a disadvantage.

Oh, well. I was never exactly champion-level in this stuff anyway, there's always someone better out there. You don't always win, and you don't always lose; just knowing I've played smartly, brought something to the team and maybe pulled off some nice moves is good enough for me. :)

At 40, it's pretty much the same as it's always been, I guess. I've never been much of a fan of high speed twitch combat.  Now, if you're simply using 'twitch' to mean 'player must react to something', then it varies. I kinda like to have some of that, so long as it's not constantly 'player must perform action(s) within half a second or die horribly, while circle strafing and bunny hopping' (I hate, hate, hate hate that kinda thing), but it generally is not (and has never been) something I want a lot of or want to be focused on. I can't really tell if I'm any worse at it now than I've ever been, as it's always been something that- at high speeds- I never enjoyed enough to bother getting good at. I guess, basically, I like to have something like, 'I blocked that attack, so now I can use this post-block attack in response or start this attack chain that only opens on a block', and not  repeatedly  nothing more than 'counter that attack or it takes a huge chunk of my life!'. I'm good at one of those, and I hate the other so much that I'm only 'good enough' at it and put up with it only if I like the rest of the game enough to look past what, to me, is unenjoyable combat.

To sum up, I guess my reflexes are pretty much the same... but since I never honed mine to a razor's edge, a bit of dulling might not be so apparent.

I have been wondering if it's just me or if any of you other older gamers have any issues at all with the fast paced, relfex-centric MMO's that are available in today's market.

I am finding more and more as time goes on, that I really don't play well when it comes to the twitch gaming, button smashing games, which i used to thrive at.

Kinda made me wish longingly, for a newer more up to date Turn based combat MMO, something to give the older folks, like myself a few seconds to make that tactical decision, was watching/helping my granddaughter play a 101 game ( arrrr )  and was thinking man this is kinda nice, time to think about what you are doing, and still some MMO fun.

I wouldn't mind something like that f a little more adult oriented, for myself  and perhaps others in the reflex challenged generation.

Oh anyone who knows of a turn based combat MMO, toss it a mention :)

 

 

 

I have a limited attention span problem.  I cannot be bothered to sit and concentrate relentlessly on a twitch mmo for hours. I have the TV on, or I am doing other things, and I do not want my entire evening to be spent solely starring at my monitor.  So yes, I also miss the more relaxed playstyles.  

Edit: I also enjoy P101 for the same reasons.  

This is why I do not like games that are slower paced.  IMO if you're distracted enough to not even bother playing the game , or worse off don't feel the need to use all your focus on the game then the game becomes pointless.  But each has thier own beliefs.

 

Used to always hate playing a game like WoW and hear people talk on vent about what movie or show their currently waching.  I do not understand that philosophy myself.

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!

Can't do TERA or Vindictus type games.  Subject to motion sickness.  Not fast enough to PvP.  Doubt it is a reflex problem.  I'm just not really "there" all the time.  My mind wanders like medieval bardic aristocrat.

48.

I am still ok in MMOs, I think. Not exactly top of the game, but I wasn't top of the game in Ultima Online either. But FPS... oh my god I feel OLD!

I remember in the early CS and TF, I was actually a threat to be reckoned with. Always in the upper half I revelled in hunting down hackers, attacking them from angles they did not expect. Yur mind was very focused when the turn started "Kill kill KILL"

Nowadays though... I enter CS for example, buy my weapon and half the team is already in position. Then run forward... see an enemy! Here the only thought is supposed to be "shoot!" Not nowadays... its more like "Oh look, a guy. is he an enemy? I think so, he is aiming at me, I need to aim too! Let me see.. try for head? Yeah, try head... Aaand... respawn"

The whole idea is evolutionary of course. I can live with that. Old people are slower in mind and body, so when a group is attacked by predators the old ones gets eaten first, and the younger who can still multiply and support the group, gets away. But when the threat is not wandering tigers but a funny game, its damn annoying!

I'm 40 years old and have Psoriatic Arthritis, but I still do fine and am competitive in whatever game I choose to focus on. Whether I am doing PvP in WoW, RvR in DAoC, WvW in GW2, Counter-Strike, etc (or dungeons/raids) you just have to figure out how to adapt and use a class that you can utilize throughout whatever shortcomings you may possess.

Far as consoles go the more buttons on a controller the more confused i get. :)

 

My kids laugh at me. I think it is funny too ha! 

 

You should watch me try to play Call of Duty on the xbox with my son. When I see another player I try to target him and all you see is sky or ground...then I die.

I actually used to hate video games and thought they were a waste of time. Then my brother-in-law wouldn't shut up until I tried SWG...I have been playing mmo's ever since.
