I've been a gamer for 30 years...

...and tonight was the first time I ever broke a controller out of frustration.

I can't take the fielding and base running in this game anymore.

Gamer for 40, you need Paxil

As a matter of fact yes (I am 43), Space Invaders, Asteroids, Pac Man, or my all time favorite (Donkey Kong). Much simpler time, no worries about being told to “git gud”, being hashtag wrecked or other crazy [censored].

My Dad was a hobbyist, we had a bit of money and he had a dedicated room with all of the aforementioned game cabinets among pinball machines, Atari, C64....

Only score I cared about was my previous best. Personally, it is hard for me to relate to a gamer mentality, or perhaps I see things differently.

JK on the Paxil comment, just another witticism that clearly missed the mark, I meant no offense

OP said 30, I said 40. Either way it’s cool that a niche hobby back in the day is mainstream, I may not like most of the mindset but I still stick to it

Edit: apparently I am confused, two posters one icon

That's the truth. That game has been responsible for more broken controllers and household damage than any other.

I agree this game is some carnival level of ripoff. I wish I was at the FTC and could launch an investigation into their practices. It's pretty comical.

I find ranked seasons relaxing compared to FUT champs

45 year gamer here. I can understand the anger but it’s not worth it.

I’m telling you, we need an over 40 men’s league where our old eyeballs are all on the same level playing field. RS is totally frustrating at times. One game you’re hitting great, the next game you can’t touch a fastball.

Me and Donkey Kong have a bit of a love/hate relationship. Whenever we are at a place with a DK machine my wife always ends up having to physically drag me away.
