My older brother got a Genesis from our parents before I was born so I started playing that when I was 3. We also had a Macintosh which was pretty cool but couldn't play Lego Island that I bought at the book fair...
Eventually got a N64 a year after the rich kids got it, then same thing with a PS2.
Got into PC gaming after that and didn't really keep up with modern consoles after that.

I think if my parents had bought a SNES instead of a Genesis I would be a somewhat different person. I like fast paced and/or overwhelming music (hardcore, black metal, noise, post-bop, IDM). I think if I had the generally calmer games of the SNES without the gnarly Genesis FM synth I'd probably more into classical and pop music but idk, maybe I'm putting too much emphasis on it.

Started out with an Atari 2600 my parents had bought my older sisters in the 80s. It was actually one of the Sears Video Arcade 2 machines. Manufactured by Atari for Japan I believe but rebranded and sold by Sears stateside. Moved on to a Genesis and then N64 since the Saturn was such a non-factor in the US. Kept gaming through the years on everything (never really stopped playing the old stuff just because there was something new).

4chan has gradually gotten more diverse as moot implemented new boards, so it's not uncommon to see cross-posters from other boards.

Besides, gaming has never actually been a "male hobby." From what I've seen of studies on demographics, men and women were usually always tied in terms of video game purchases. And they also tended to play the same genres, including sports and FPS.

I came across those stats, yes, and was wondering how relevant would they be to so-called retrogaming communities. I think in terms of age repartition /vr/ seems quite similar to general all encompassing stats about gaming in general. But gender wise it's very different, at least here, so far. I was expecting /vr/ to be more male, but not in such large proportion. But as I said, could it be also this particular type of gaming? It's funny though because I remember as a kid that when the coleco came out, we were all playing in my classroom, boy and girls.

>>3318057
Yes, you're completely right, but that's why I was more interested to ask here rather than on pcenginefx, nintendoage, chipmusic, nesdev, etc. That said I do not know which source would be the most representative, these venerable forums are also so much linked to a previous net culture, I do not know if people, say in their 20s, would go there as much as those who grew up with these kind of Internet forums. It's also a completely different mode of address. Myself I do not know behave the same depending on the board/platform.

OP again

>>3318053
I find it super natural, personally. I grew up in contact with people of all sorts of age/background when it comes to computer/consoles. When I was 15-16, it was a 55 years old guy who introduced me to the Atari ST disk swapping and cracktro scene. It was also super common in BBS to interact with young/old people, this was also the same atmosphere in computer clubs. And if you're a bit into mainframe computing history and the early machine networks, you can quickly witness such age diversity as well. It's only more recently than computer culture started to be seen as some fragmented market. With some irony, I think that the late 90s democratisation and increasing marketing of consoles as something for kids and teenagers lead to this situation where "old" and "young" being mixed.

>>3318059

37 Male

The people I personally know in my age-range, who are into games are 98% male. I think that's because video games in our western culture was considered a "boys toy" for the longest time.

I think you'll find a more even split in Japan, for instance, where it's more unisex.

There's also tons of new people arriving to the hobby as it become trendy among hipsters and nostalgiafags, which can be hard to account for, but anyone who is and 20-something currently really into the Nintendo 64 is probably not for the games themselves, but for nostalgic reasons.

Nostalgia is probably the only redeemable reason for being into the N64 in any capacity anyway. If you grew up owning the wrong console, but played it anyway with friends, it's the time spend with friends that you fondly remember. If you really want to feel nostalgic about the N64 experience without paying eBay scalper prices, then just dip your glasses in vaseline, find the most uncomfortable piece of plastic you can hold your hand and have someone scream "IT'S A-MEEE! MAAAARIOOOO!" at you until you get over it.

Then get a Dreamcast if you're interested in playing some real games.

Its consumer research had said that the golden age was 17, in that a 12-year-old wants to be 17, and a 25-year-old wants to be 17 again. So SCEA wanted to aim its message at that age group.

Fascinating, thank you. I don't really agree that 25 year olds want to be 17 again on average, but it's interesting seeing where the thinking comes from.

It may have been perception, but Playstation seemed to me to be marketed more towards the college crowd than other consoles had been before that. That the N64 was still mainly a "kids" machine and that PS was what older gamers played. And Saturn was for the super hardcore nerds.

That might have just been how perceptions turned out as opposed to how they were intended.

I'm 28 year old male.

To be fair, I was a picky shit who didn't play anything that wasn't connected to Mario, or based on a cartoon I liked, until the Gamecube era. And I didn't get too deep into retro games until the Wii virtual console became a thing.

Can totally confirm this.

The Ninty autism set in with the 64, and will probably die out post NX.

My friends who grew up with SNES' showed no signs of rampant Nintendo nostalgia and have varied tastes in vidya, and usually pick up Nintendo consoles for the jrpgs or non-11st party exclusives.

The autism wave really went 64>3DS>Wii-U after 64 kiddies realized how socially maladjusted they were and said fuck it, I'll wear Pikachu pyjamas out in public.

I'm not surprised at the average age being mid-20 to 30. I see the same every time there's retro game tournaments.

Holy shit, this is spot on. I feel like this is every time I hear people gushing on the 64.

Pretty sure those were just unfunny troll replies.

I'm not even sure about the MtF / FtM replies for that matter. Trans people generally wouldn't identify as trans and single themselves out, they'd announce themselves as whatever gender they identify as.

>> No.3322983

>>3322489
Unfortunately the left has been trying to push "trans as identity" for years now.

The left pushes "trans visibility" when most trans women don't WANT to be visible. Identity politics is seriously destroying the left's credibility; more and more fags and trannies are getting redpilled and joining the alt-right.

First system was a sega genesis, then got an N64 and later Playstation. Then 6th gen stuff, etc

38/m. First game was Pac-Man on an Atari 800 at age 3 or 4... Actually managed to finish the first board on my last life. Was told I did well by my parents who watched (and were apparently surprised I finished the first level), and I was immediately hooked.

Atari 2600 & 800 were my mediums for many years, didn't have an NES until I was 11 or 12, but we had like a hundred games on the 800.

Dad got rid of the 800, even after I offered to buy it numerous times to give it a good home. I still wish I'd gotten a hold of it... M.U.L.E. played better on that than it ever did on the NES (even though I love my NES)

Then got a sms, and after my mom flipped out and got us banned from the only store that rented sms games, I got an nes and was always really disappointed in the graphics.

My first games were browser games specifically this point and click called Lenny in Space. I played Donkey Kong 64 when I was in a hospital and then later on got a PS2. Now I am just tired of a lot of modern trends so I look to the past for good games. Working on Mario 2 right now,

Earliest gaming memories were of NES TMNT2 and Kirby's Dreamland.
The first time I beat Kirby I ran out of the bathroom from taking a dump to tell my mom of my "accomplishment".

A bit of an embarrassing story but hopefully y'all find it chuckle worthy.
