30Plusgamer.com is an independent video game website devoted to the surprisingly HUGE segment of the video gamers out there that are over the age of 30. Did you know that the average age of the most frequent video game buyer is 35? I didn't think so - it's a huge group that NEEDS it's own voice! We're working hard every day to be that voice! 30Plusgamer.com has been providing resources for advanced video gamers with original, groundbreaking video game content since January 2012.
There have been a lot of articles/videos/opinion pieces, etc put out discussing some of the problematic areas in the gaming industry. Discussing things from sexism, racism, and violence. In response to this there have been a lot of groups that have come out in full force demanding that these opinion pieces need not be shared […]
Advanced Warfare has been a massive hit, and thousands of players are joining the ranks of exo-suit mayhem every day! Unfortunately, that also means a lot more competition for us folk who don’t have as much time to play as before. We’ve already talked about the basics to playing ANY Call of Duty game, but […]
Story What story is there to speak of? It’s a puzzle game, there’s no evident back-story but one could extrapolate an idea from it. You’re an electron microscope operator and decided to remove pesky rogue elections from orbits around atoms (Not getting into the S, P, D or F orbitals for that point) before thinking […]
Zoo Keeper, Taito (1982) The further back in history I with regards to video games, the more obscure, random and quite frankly, uniquely interesting I seem to find the games to be. 1982, a fantastic year even if I do say so myself, brought about such games as Q*Bert, Lasso, Dig-Dug and of course, Zoo […]
Zerowing, Toaplan (1989) All your base are belong to us, Gentlemen make your time and a whole host of other such bad translations are what plagued the Megadrive/genesis version of this game, but now we have just the arcade version which features solely the gameplay and no shoehorned plots and cut scenes that the console […]
Zero Point, Unico (1998) Everything about this game seems to scream “We’re not quite Point Blank”, a wonderful gun game by Namco I might add that was released 4 years earlier. It screams of plagiarism and ripping off another product and like a lot of instances of this, doesn’t quite measure up to the original […]
2014 was filled with a lot of wonderful games. The newer systems finally got up and running, but PS3 and Xbox 360 weren’t forgotten in the process. Throughout the year gamers have gotten to experience a lot of great games, and here are the favorite games of the 30plusgamer’s team. Megan E. Pearson Halo Master Chief Collection: While […]
Youjyuden, Irem (1986) In what initially appears to be a rip-off from games like Ikari Warriors and Commando, Irem give us this hidden little gem, Youjyuden. Taking the idea that the Gods and Demons have run amok and one man decides to stand up, slap on a helmet, occasionally grow wings, and goes into battle […]
Yie Ar Kung-Fu, Konami (1985) There’s always been something about the Mystic East that has driven people to make films about sorcerers, dragons, magicians, martial artists with inane abilities like flying, floating and being able to leap huge distances. Yie Ar Kung-Fu tries to take that kind of approach to the martial art genre in […]
Yam! Yam!?, Dooyong (1990) It’s hard to know where to start when you’re faced with a game that has so little exposure and at the same time, so little understanding of what the history behind the game is and what on earth has small furry bear like things got to do with this particular genre […]
The PC community for Dark Souls 1 and 2 had a mini-heart attack during this past week, as the popular (if not completely mandatory) DSFix patch was taken down, momentarily, by a DMCA claim made by Namco/Bandai. While the company did not intend for this community-made patch to be taken down, the fans felt insulted […]
