I'm 23. I know people of various ages who know and love LucasArts, ranging from ages 18 to mid 40s.

None of the friends I had at school played/heard of/or liked adventure games. But only 1 friend I had at college did.

I think I only discovered the LucasArts adventures a couple of years ago. The first one I played, if I remember right, was Escape from Monkey Island. But my first ever adventure game was Simon the Sorcerer back in the early/middle of the 90s. Loved it.

Looks like I am the oldest for the moment.
I am from a generation that played these games when they were released at the end of the 80s and 90s (it makes me feel old saying that). I remember in particular the CDs that were bundle with a mac we got in 96 (Full Throtle, Sam & Max and DOTT) although I had played to a few other adventure games before that.

I've been playing adventure games since my family got my first PC, a 80386SX with whopping 16Mhz (I was about 9 or 10 then)
