Mature Players? Over 30? Who is The Oldest?

134
I'm 43. Just wondered how many other mature members there are in here?

I tend to play in an evening after the kids are in bed for a chill. First played Sensible Soccer back in the early 90s, and KICK OFF back in the 80s. Would love to know how many other oldies are in here, and how long you have been playing Fifa?

    I am 50, started with subbuteo as a lad and that Wembley board game, played most football games since. Football manager on the zx spectrum, Kick off 2 and Sensible Soccer on the Amiga 500. On ps2 I was a pro evolution soccer fanatic, started playing fifa much later.

    FIFA 18 was the first football game I'd played since playing Match Day on the zx spectrum decades(!) ago. Spent many hours on football manager too.

    I'm 32 not sure about mature though mate. If I was mature I'd stop playing this garbage.

    31. Exactly.

    I was about to say the same thing! 34 but not a mature bone in my body. My 9 year old Daughter has definitely surpassed me in the maturity stakes 😂

    54, been playing Futbol games since childhood. We used to play in my cousin's room. The floor was made out of tiles so it was easy to delineate a pitch. We made players out of Lego pieces and used big coat buttons as a "ball" you had to pass, take turns and score. Later I moved on to the Sega Genesis console and never looked back. Played "World Championship Soccer". So addicted to this shhit, gotta stop soon. I think this will be my last fifa ; )

  • There is actually a Facebook group called "Fifa Geriatrics - A Safe Place For Mature Fifa Players" with a few hundred members, so it looks like there is a community out there!

    I'm 35. Started on the Spectrum daily Thompson decathlon and international match day. Played all the fifas up to about 2000, then switched to pes. Started uni 2002 and just played champ manager still play 01/02 now) until world of warcraft came out. Played that and football manager until Modern warfare 2 came out.

    Didnt bother with football games again until fifa 12 game out. Was driving back from a friends wedding and some mates were telling me about Ultimate team, went Tesco when i got home and been hooked on it since. Still love games like Witcher and Skyrim but my gaming time is very limited now as have a 2 and 4 year old.

    By time got them to bed spent a bit of time with the mrs it's nearly best time so restricted to at tops few hours a night. Pretty much why I only play fifa or cod, you can just turn them on and play. Games like Skyrim, RDR2 you need time. Got RDR2 last Christmas, hardly played it. Switched it one the other day by time I worked out what mission I'm on it time for bed
