I'm finding out how old the average OFP player is (If you only play ArmA but visit here, don't vote, only those that still play OFP can vote.

I have nothing against age (In fact I am rather young compared to most of you anyway. Most would consider me between a "CS and BF playing candidate") this is just for comparision (I'm going to do one in ArmA forums, but not in other games forums (People would just put fake ages, I trust this comunity) so you can vote in both if you still play both)

20 going on 21, I occasionally hit "the Flash" when my cousin and I play FLAGFIGHTGUNS on Nogova and get reams of laughs.

I also play good ole OFP when I want to not get a random crash every 30 minutes... Posted Image

maybe you could put the age poll of ArmA and OFP together and see if it shows anything

me = 26, 27 in August.

Fell in love with OFP when i played the demo on a friends pc cause mine was too weak for it back then, he found it odd while i absolutely loved the freedom ( even in the demo ).

17 now, dunno when I started. Got interested in it by playing lots of Ghost Recon(before it got weird and all that is) and got into it by playing both demo's(CWC and Resistance).
So I firstly got CWC alone after playing through most of the campaign I wanted to have addons, but I found out I needed Resistance. So I bought the GOTY edition online and damn, I got hooked...
You just read one hell of a useless post! Thanks!

I'm also counting to the senior-scene of OFP-players. Posted Image

Age: 42. Posted Image

Playing OFP since it was released, because of its fascinating possibilities. Most of other games have these damned scripted way to fullfill your tasks - OFP let you choose how to go on.

15, 16 in July. I think I've played OFP since 2002 or so, and still love it!

Propably wouldn't play much today anymore without mods like Invasion 44, Seb Nam Pack, Liberation 41-45, FDF and The Unsung though.
