There is a short, somewhat visually oriented quiz over at BuzzFeed that will attempt to guess your age based on your video game preferences.
Some of the questions were straight up simple for me to answer.
Others were… more obscure to me. And there were not that many questions, so the whole thing was soon attempting to assign me an age… or no age at all. I got this:
So that’s it, the blog is going to change to The Ageless Gaming Noob. I have certainly been around for almost every generation of video games, though I have never been the best gamer on any block.

That can’t be right. I certainly am not big on streaming or league gaming, and I certainly remember a world without the internet. It was a grim place of half-guessed trivia and not quite knowing where you had seen that actor before.
I blame knowing how many Pokemon there were for that result.
Anyway, a moment’s distraction on the internet… which I suppose is like pointing out a drop of water in the ocean, but there you have it.
