    Now that we know where you're from

    Post  Soozicle on Wed Jul 11, 2012 9:30 pm

    What's your age range? I'm wondering what the average MM demographic is. I'm thinking we're probably mostly older. Kids don't have the patience this game takes Razz

    I'll be 38 on Saturday. I hope I get lots of MM gifts!!

    24 Smile I'm also guessing that most players are women (including me). I think that's becoming a large trend in the online/social gaming industry. Articles like this talk about that:

    I'll be 36 next week. I'm guessing the majority of my MM friends are a bit older too as they actually write words in full and know the difference between your and you're..... (one of my pet peeves) Hee Hee!

    I'm also in my late thirties and a female (which is kinda obvious from my name Razz).

    36 as well - as for now we are in the majority Wink
    From the tone on my wall, I'd suppose about 80% of my friends are female. Smile

    Happy birthday, Sooz!

    Yeah, I'd say my friends list is at least 3 to 1 female based. I figured that would be the trend, since the Facebook games that take a lot of tending to like this are only played by my older female friends.

    I decided to spice up my game by injecting humor into any wall posts I make. I told someone yesterday that when I visited them, everyone was asleep so I ran through the manor yelling "fire" and may or may not have been naked at the time. Razz That probably won't last long since that takes so much effort and eventually will have to evoke a lot of creativity to keep the jokes from getting stale. Besides, one guy I wrote out a three-wall post note to wrote back in Russian what I can only guess was I don't speak English! lol...

    Happy birthday, soozicle! I'm female and 44, but I have 3kids who are very much into computers, video games and texting, so their "speech" tends to rub off on me. It's the only way to keep up on what they are up to... I was a die hard anti gamer for ever...until I found this game. I think the social part is what got me hooked, we moved from ny to sc last year, and I have yet to really connect with anyone here. Strange, I just realized it.

    I am 47 and female. I never pictured myself playing an Internet game in which I chat with my friends and certainly never expected to be chatting in a chat room making a post like this! My fiance has threatened to throw my ipad out the window. (he was kidding) He actually bought the ipad for me as a X-mas present! See what MM can do!

    I will be 30 in September and yeap I'm female. This is the only kind of game I can play. My son tried to teach me (through his laughter) how to play his shoot'em up game on the ps3. I found out very quickly that my right thumb has zero coordination with my left thumb!! And don't even get me started on all the other buttons..........

    Well I have been a "text based game" gamer since before "gamer" was a word, but I suck at and get incredibly frustrated with even 15 year old adventure games. Remember in the movie BIG where at the beginning Josh (as a child) was playing a computer game that was asking him what he wanted to do next? http://www.bomtoons.com/biggame.html I played an even more primitive version of that type of game back in those days!!! At the time ours was the only house I knew of that had a "computer" of all my friends. Can you believe how far we've come?? Did we ever really believe that the kid-with-awesome-technology movies from the 80's would ever come true, much less come much closer to Star Trek technology, in our life times?!?! Some times I can't believe this "tablet" I carry around with me is actually a micro computer/communication device/gaming console/Recipe book/atlas/self contained mobile library/shopping mechanism/1000 other things... When you stop and think about it, all this stuff the kids these days take for granted, it really is awesome! But then I did walk barefoot up hill to school in the snow, both ways. afro

    I don't like things that require eye-hand coordination. My daughter plays me in FIFA soccer on the PS3 because she knows she can win....same with the Mario brother eating game! LOL

    I'm great at puzzles and finding things though...so MM is a perfect for me. :-)
