Welcome. Enjoy the ride.

I am actually the opposite, I pretty much can't get into PC games at all and am only 28. But I do mostly newer games too on PS4 and PS3 but am getting some older ones as I can afford to. The PC games I have been really into are ones that are not even really popular mainstream wise, like Flight Simulator was my biggest thing when I was a teen on the computer. I did pour thousands of hours into it, but I am not into that anymore either. I like Civilization and stuff and certain strategy type games of the like and Sim City type games though. But its a very diverse world and theres room for all of us. One thing about PC is I am also a staunch physical media guy and things like Steam are killing that and I don't like that either. Its happening to consoles too but not as bad yet. Plus Windows 10 is a malfunction itself, a lot of the games I have on disc don't work for W10 and I shouldn't have to rebuy them on Steam. Having to rebuy a game on isn't true backwards compatibility. This happened with Civiliazation IV which I like a lot. And 2K says there is no fix and all I can do is get the Steam version apparently. PC Backwards Compatibility is overrated too. Having to buy it again on Steam when I have the disc isn't BC.

PC Backwards Compatibility is overrated too. Having to buy it again on Steam when I have the disc isn't BC.

I do buy my older games (and newer ones if available) on GOG (a DRM-Free digital distributing site) which do try to optimize older titles for newer operating systems as well as having a non-encrypted exe version due to being DRM-Free. I'm not opposed to digital or physical copies, but irregardless of the format, I am highly against DRM.
Another reason is probably because I enjoy niche titles (and eurojank games like S.T.A.L.K.E.R series), in addition to indie titles. Older games most of the time can be fixed (if not by the distributor or develope) by the fans, in the form of unofficial patches or by creating am open source engine.
Another personal rationality is that , I prefer running older games on widescreen (in the same aspect ratio as my monitor but if not stretched would do) and/or windowed mode, which they ere not designed intially to do, but due to the tools such as DxWnd and emulators such as dosbox, dgVooDoo or Glide. If a game runs poorly on modern Windows OS or does not natively suppprt Linux, using Wine and tweaking the settings of the game by the use of the command line is always useful at least for me.

 I also do have some physical copies of games but some do contain DRM which is not supported on my current OS (Windows 10) causing them to crash, but can easily be fixed due to downloading third party patches or by pther means.

To summarize, I guess what I mean to say is I appreciate the "open-ness" of an open platform like the PC. I can see how it can turn some people way but for me the ability to tweak your games and make them run on systems they werent designed to, was always fascinating.
