I don't know if games like Pong or the Atari Asteroid games count but at least I've succeeded in dating myself--so there's that. Then there were the educational games like Oregon Trail and the ever so popular Donkey Kong. After a very long hiatus, last summer/fall I upgraded my PC in a major way, and went all-in -- at least for me. I ended up purchasing an RTX-2080 graphics card which came with two games: Control and Wolfenstein: Youngblood. I felt obliged to give them both a whirl. After mastering both of those games (insert long, and sustained wink, here), I then purchased Disco Elysium and Outer Wilds. Outer Wilds was a great game but introduced me to one of the frustrations that can occur when I was near finishing and my progress settings disappeared--sigh.
In summary, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I actually enjoyed gaming. I always had imagined it was not for me but I quickly got hooked--even at my not so young age.
