Until recently I'd thought that most folks who fly flight sims were an older crowd, but there seems to be an influx of people on HL who at the very least ACT childish.

So I thought I'd ask, just how old are you?

Me? I'm 22.

At the point of my birth as the beeing I am now I was 21.
That was exactly 7 months after the Battle of Teuteburg.

I am 43 yrs young. I remember my 20's. I remember my 30's. Let's just say so far my 40's are allot better than either of those decades. It has definitely gotten better with age. I am actually enjoying growing older. I was an idiot in my 20's. And an arrogant idiot in my 30's. Not sure how I would describe myself now, but, I know I am better off in allot of areas, maturity being one of them.

45 here. Feel much younger though ( or much younger than I thought someone in their mid-40's would feel back when I was in my late teens/early 20's ). Vividly remember my teens/20's/30's. Better physical shape than ever, thanks to a more health conciousness ( that getting up in years brings on ) Eyesight holding out....knock on wood.

Other than that, my thoughts pretty much mirror Quazi's.

It is good to see very young members that get into WWII flight sims. With all the games & technology at their fingertips, actually what they have grown up with to date, it is good to see.

When we started our squadron back in '03, we had a young man that lied to us about his age. I don't know why he did. Maybe he thought that if we truly knew how old he was that we wouldn't allow him to join our squadron and fly with us on a regular basis. So he said he was 17 yrs old. Well, after a year or so I ran into his sister on Yahoo thinking it was him. And she was curious how a group of adults could stand a little kid hanging out with them flying this sim. I told her that 17 yrs of age isn't to bad and that he acted much more mature than his age. She laughed and said that he just had his 13th birthday the week before or something to that affect. So we allowed a 12 yr old kid join our squadron under the premise that he was 17 yrs old and at that point had been flying with him for nearly a year week in & week out. lol Pretty crazy thinking back on that now. Anyway, of course we, as a group of adults & some with children older than he was, decided we needed to have some communications with his parents & let them know that we had no idea he was as old as he was & to reassure them that he was safe flying with us, that we weren't a bunch of perverted old men that played games in order to meet kids, hehe. And to beat it all, at that age his maturity level was such that we had no issues getting along with him in the least. Today? Well, he is still with us fixing to graduate high school and has just turned 18. Pretty cool.

But it is good to see the young ones here, out & about. Kudos to the younger members here!

Only problem with that is you probably find yourself saying more than you normally would`ve done if you knew he was 13.

Persoanlly, I think the fear of dodgy older men trying it on with kids over the net is exagerrated. exaggerated to a point of silliness.

I remember playing Red Orchestra and as sometimes happen you team up with another player who happen to fight especially well and we teamed up. We waffled about the cruelty of war and the game. He then said he was 14. whoa! I had no idea he was that young, he spoke like an adult, but fair enough. he asked how old I was, i said 40.
He quit.

How weird was that?

That`s why I hate the net sometimes, suddenly you feel like you`re a pervert when you weren`t. In reality I wouldn`t even have spoken to a kid that young cos people get so weird these days. Or maybe I just crimped his style, as my daughter says, "You`re old!"

You are at the start of the best opportunities in your life. You have no life baggage yet. Nothing. From this moment you could be the best at anything if you focus and apply yourself now... Or at least within the next few (like 3 years) years.

Your life is an open book waiting for you to write it. Do all the hard work from now until you succeed, then plenty of time to relax and rest and enjoy yourself when you`ve made it.

Fencing rocks stick with it, when your 18 youll be pleased your good at something and have something going for you. Lots of kids get to 18/20 then realize their no good at anything and go downhill. Plus the women will like you more if you keep in good shape through fencing.

Feelin' alive at forty-five!

The comments about the paucity of "youngsters" in this more adult-oriented gaming sphere reminds me of a similar situation in astronomy. Our RASC Centre here in Ottawa has virtually no members of teen age, and not many in their 20's, either. No, it's mostly a bunch of grey-hairs or nearly so. But in decades past there was (I'm sure) a rather higher percentage of young un's into astronomy--they were called "Juniors" up 'til the 1960's.

Declining youth participation in many areas could be the result of the shorter attention spans resulting from our get-it-now-without-effort instant gratification life styles. It takes lots of patience, some studiousness and a maybe a wee dose of maturity to invest the required effort/energy in the simulation side of gaming. (And of course an abiding interest to begin with!)

To those wee bairns among us, I salute you!

I'll be the youngest then. I'm 14, but I'm not all that happy, with it. There is no time in the day for me to do anything I like. Schools hard, and I fence, so I have fencing practice almost everyday.

You are at the start of the best opportunities in your life. You have no life baggage yet. Nothing. From this moment you could be the best at anything if you focus and apply yourself now... Or at least within the next few (like 3 years) years.

Your life is an open book waiting for you to write it. Do all the hard work from now until you succeed, then plenty of time to relax and rest and enjoy yourself when you`ve made it.

Lets put it this way... Next May I'll be able to get my driver's license. If I can get my permit first, that is. Half a year and my parents are still too busy to do (Or care, for that matter) much about it.

Thanks for advice guys.
I'm going to try to stay in fencing till i'm to weak to walk.

I also really like how this sim isn't just for one age group, there are several age groups, and it's really cool.

Yeah the age question! The feelings of how old one is seems to me to be dependant on the time of day! I feel older and have aching stiff joints when awaking and getting up, then get progressively more supple as the day progresses and hence feel younger! So life is good as long as you can awake and enjoy being alive;it makes you cherish life and enjoying the sunlight and environment Well physically I've been here for 53 years but I still relate and emphasise with my 11 yr old daughter,(best mate) and can appreciate the youthful exuberances of the simple things that make kids laugh and smile.Enjoy life whilst you can as one day we will all be either infirm, dependant on others or dead before we should be. We all know friends who have passed over whilst still regarded as young or youthful.

I also got the chance to put down a very busy life and explore computers as an occupation. I doubt I would have had the time to get into IL2, or on-line gaming at all; life as a house-builder doesn't leave much time for play.
