>> No.472639

Well... I think a lot of people undershoot the age of both gamers, and people who post on 4chan.

Also, a retro gaming board is probably going to attract an older crowd by default.

You could argue that, however those people don't exist on 4chan in any significant numbers and most of the userbase is in high school. I wouldn't estimate 30 yos at more than 5% of all posters here.

Sometimes they do. There's one mod who'll ban you for three months.

Only game from 1980 I've ever played much is PacMan, so I guess PacMan.

But looking at the list, there's some neat including a 2p terrorism-simulator on the Apple II called "Terrorism".

From wiki:

> One player plays the government authority, while the other plays a terrorist organization in three scenarios: the capture of a building and taking of hostages, air piracy, and nuclear blackmail

So yeah, a plane-hijacking terrorism-sim. I wonder what sort of shitstorm would happen if someone remade it on a modern platform
