Who is the oldest gears player in the community?


Over 60 LMAO! I will keep playing GOW as long as there is a campaign and horde and VS with AI. I turn off gore but leave the language on because I’m yelling at the same time. Its tough that a lot of games now charge for everything extra. I was a big Fable, Mass Effect, Viva Pinata and COD because of finding goodies but never had to pay extra and spend so much time accumulating “scrap” to get something new. I have been doing daily MS Rewards so I can purchase more stuff! I want to say thanks for having these “events” so that I can get enough Credits, etc. to buy your gear packs!

43 years young. Been playing since a few months after gears 1 came out. Sadly my 1st game was Cold Planet cause some doofus talked me into getting it instead of Gears. What a moron! Didn’t play it till April 2007 when I went to my brothers and he had it. Was hooked instantly and played it non stop since.
Even became a collector of Neca gears memorabilia. Have some pretty sweet rare stuff. Since I’m older I can afford to buy some nice gears treasures. Anyways, I digress. My reaction time has become slower but, I’ve learned to change my style and adapt. I’ll still give you a hard time. Most of my games I end up positive. I’ll do things you wouldn’t expect from a younger run of the mill every day player.
NO…I’m not giving any of my secrets away.

I’ve played with a few people in their 60’s so they definitely had me beat …which I’m OK with. Being the oldest one at something isn’t a position anyone holds for too long.

I started playing the first Gears in 2007 and I was 33 years old. I’m 44 now. I’m the freakin Gears G.O.A.T.


I am always the oldest and don’t know why it would be flagged

Some people are just jerks (hoping people here are old enough to get the reference).

An old friend of mine I used to play Gears with killed himself last year.
He was only pushing 50.

He had some issues with his ex which led up to it, but he left his kids without a father.
Not sure if that’s worse than the guy you know of getting killed by his own kid though. That’s just brutal.
