    I just have to ask because I've got this funny notion that Dredmor players skew older than one might expect. Let's make this a poll! (Answers are private; no worries.)

    I think roguelikes naturally pull in an older crowd. I'd wager I'm younger than a bulk of the fine folks on this forum.

    Dang, am I the only 13 year-old that loves rougelikes?

    Been playing ADOM since I could type, and Dredmor is easily one of my favorite rouges ever.

    ps. making a mental note to stay away from the wandlore jokes, for I fear it could hurt my sanity.

    Well technically I should have voted in a lower bracket, but since in one month that will be wrong, I didn't.

    Speaking of which, wow I didn't realize it was so close to that time again. :( Now I feel old.

    For me it's pretty normal, I'm in the middle of one of brackets' range.

    And I'm not as ancient as some guys there, but I definitely perceive myself as "old".

    33 here. I'm glad I'm not the only Old Fart enjoying DoD. ;)

    reminds me vaguely of a standard distribution

    It's interesting that there's such a large number in the late twenties and then a normal distribution around 18-20.

    I'm here, too :p

    The only other roguelikes i've played are the first and third Shiren the Wanderer games (and one of the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games, but it's easy compared to the others.

    I really need to try ADOM/Nethack (sp?), don't I?

    rouge (plural rouges)
    1. Red or pink makeup to add colour to the cheeks; blusher.
    2. Any reddish pink colour.
    3. (Canadian football) A single point awarded when a team kicks the ball out of its opponent's end zone, or when a kicked ball becomes dead within the non-kicking team's end zone. Etymology uncertain; it is thought that in the early years of the sport, a red flag indicated that a single had been scored.
    It just invokes a Berserker Rage in me when people don't get "rogue" right
    SkyMuffin and Kazeto like this.

    i'm surprised this isn't more skewed towards older people. or maybe older people are less prone to browse internet forums.

    According to the poll at the moment, I am in the largest age group.

    The spread is actually a little lower than I thought it would be. I'd have thought 26-29 would be larger than it is.

    Demographics: Maybe not as important as you are lead to believe. :confused:

    I'm at the high end of the 25-29 (28), so I almost put the 30-35 since that's how old most of my friends are.
  17. I am trying to guess who the other younglings are. Werediggler? Omninegro?

    Also, I clicked on the topc thinking it was asking how odd players are.

    It depends on what you define as "younglings". Those below 18? Those below 25? Something else entirely?

    I just polled as 35 - but I'll be 36 in just a few hours. FWIW.

    I think this is the part where we all get our canes out and shout at everyone to get off our lawns.
