Who the heck IS 30plusgamer anyway?
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.

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.
Interview with Barry Collins, Developer of Ashen Rift
Freedom Wars is a third-person action game developed by Sony’s own “Japan Studio”, exclusively for the Playstation Vita. For those holding their breath wondering whether Freedom Wars would turn out to be the killer app the Vita deserves, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Freedom Wars is every bit as awesome as you were led to believe. Aside from a […]
The Evil Within got a lot of hype due in large part to Shinji Mikami being involved with the project. They marketed it as a survival horror game going back to the roots of what the genre used to be, instead of being overly action heavy as it is now. Add in some fairly popular […]
Operation Thunderbolt, Taito (1989) Rolling on the success of Operation Wolf, Operation Thunderbolt gives us more of the same with a fresh graphical engine and the ability to have two players at once shooting terrorists. Possibly inspired by the 1976 hijacking of a plane in which the rescue mission is also referred to as Operation […]
Movies and video games have a long history together. There are many games out there based on movies, and horror movies are no exception. There are some we all know, but there are also a few many people haven’t heard of. Here is a list of some video games based on horror movies, some you […]
I know what you are probably thinking: “I’m an over-thirty gamer with only so much time that I can spend outside of work, family, maybe a social life, etc. I want to use my time playing my favorite video games, not reading about them!” I know how it is. Time never seems to be on […]
Ninja Baseball Bat Man, Irem (1993) I’ve never been one for baseball, personally speaking. I do know it’s big in the ‘States and possibly as big in Japan, but it’s not really hit the mainstream here in the UK. Having played some baseball games, I’m fairly certain I know enough of the rules to be […]
Styx: Master of Shadows is a tale of a crotchety goblin who uses his sneak skills to steal, kill, and exploit. The only thing Styx doesn’t do with his skill set is keep the player engaged from start to finish.
Night Slashers, Data East (1993) Data East has a history of hit and miss gaming. This one is more of a “skewed off to the side” kind of game. In the same vein as Final Fight, Mutation Nation, Violent Storm and other such brawlers, Night Slashers takes a sort of Van Helsing approach to gaming […]
Futuridium is a game that brings back many fond memories growing up. Reminiscent of old school space shooters with the look and feel of Star Fox for the Super Nintendo, I was instantly attracted to Futuridium. Don’t be fooled by the retro styled graphics, though. This is a game geared towards the hardcore and gave […]
The NewZealand Story, Taito (1988) Once again I only WISH that I was on drugs at the time of writing this, or at least the offices of the planning department of Taito when they came up with the story and idea behind this game. I can imagine it along the lines of them looking out […]
Horror games provide us good thrills and scares. The horror genre has a large variety in stories, and gameplay giving each gamer many different games to love. We all have our favorites and personal preferences so here are some of 30plusgamer’s favorite horror games. Happy Halloween everyone! Megan E. Pearson Condemned: Criminal Origins I am not entirely […]
Mutant Fighter, Data East (1992) In some fighting games you get the opportunity to take someone on, one on one in a 2D arena while in other fighting games they get you to play in a sort of wrestling arena where you can move into the background and sometimes have an actual jump button, while […]

What is a trophy? According to Webster’s dictionary, trophies are defined in full as something gained or given in victory or conquest, especially when preserved or mounted as a memorial. Unless you count all of the gold stars and happy faces affixed to some of my spelling tests, I was never fortunate enough to excel […]
