Getting Decrepit

June 19th, 2007 by Troy Goodfellow · 2 Comments · Me

The first sign of aging is not losing your hair or your memory, but your hand-eye co-ordination. That’s why most athletes peak in their mid-20s. (Sure you have the occasional freaks like Roger Clemens who go on forever, but they’re freaks.)

My aging was brought into bright light yesterday when I first tried Space Force: Rogue Universe, a game I’m reviewing. Three tries at the first mission (introduced with interminable cutscenes and treacle so thick it would stop a bullet) and I’ve only reached the point where I am willing to admit I am too old and too unschooled for this sort of thing at the moment. Maybe I should be a trader instead of a policeman.

    Interested to hear your thoughts on the game. It’s on my “maybe I’m going to buy” list.

    Practice, practice, practice. Consider that one of the reasons why youngsters are so good at games is because they have all of that extra time to practice.
