Interested after hearing a few people over the past 4 years say things like "hurry up and release before it's too late".

    Great idea, except the doctors & nurses will be able to creep up on you undetected...

    52 here. I've been gaming since the Pong and arcade game days, right through the home micro era with the ZX81 and Commodore 64, then to an Amiga 1000, and onto PC ever since. It's been a wild ride and absolutely amazing to be there from the start, and to now experience VR when it's just starting to find its feet.

    I've been finding gaming is getting pretty stale recently with most of the AAA games looking and feeling very similar. I love VR because it's like going back in time to when everything was new and we were discovering what works and what doesn't in video games. Every day brings a new experience or a new technique. Exciting times!

    It's nice to know  I'm not alone.  60+ and keeping my Rift a secret because my family will think I lost my mind.

    I'm learning something new everyday. TIL a "zimmer frame" is what they call walkers in the UK. :) Now I'll be better prepared the next time I visit.

    Wow, we are an aged bunch! 
    I'm 47 this week! had my rift since last september and loving it.

    I too feel like I did at the beginning when I got my spectrum 48K! and started my love of computer gaming!

    I went through the stages of Spectrum 48k, BBC Micro, Amiga 500, Amiga 1200, PC 286, PC 386, PC 486, Pentium, Core I7, Xbox, Playstation, Wii, 3Box 360, XBox One! 

    When I look back, I've spent a small fortune!!
    Now I only really use the Rift at any and every opportunity.  Did 4 hours in "In Death" last night!!

    Our Lass says she is a "Rift Widow", as I tend to crawl into bed just as she is getting up!!

    I wonder if cost has something to do with it?

    Also, awareness that VR is a thing, i know there might be the odd advert out there now but to really read about it you have to read in depth articles, or watch 30+ minute videos from Tested to know that it isn't perfect and you have to do a little work to get it up and running successfully.  18 year olds don't do that.

    You guys in your 40s are babies. You will be here when a headset is as light and small as glasses. I'll be gone or on my way out.
