    I want to officially apologize for putting false information in the poll. As "Joined" date is visible to everyone, I couldn't possibly be in 0-5 age range. But I'm young at heart.

    Also, having a 66+ option was brutally rude. Obviously everyone knows the only person there is Crispy

    To treat the topic half seriously, I think the success of stuff like Divinity 2 shows there will be "RPG" fans for a long time to come. Whether that fits your personal definition I dunno, but it's a lot closer than Assassin's Creed and Witcher 3.

    Point of order: Boomers didn't grow up with vidja, though I guess there are some who picked it up as adults.

    I just turned 50 and I mostly grew up on coin-ops. First RPG was like King's Quest or Zork and I was already a teenager.

    Try being in the 36-40 bracket by only a handful of months, heading to the 41+ bracket.

    I don't give a fuck about the death of RPGs but the emptiness is still there.

    Sometimes you simply are what others make of you, though. I don't really see gaming outlets and communities tripping over to talk about at least half of what Codex discusses.

    I recently turned 35, and I feel O-L-D.

    I will NEVER stop playing games, and more specifically cRPGs as long as I am able to.
