    My favorite game in the olden days was Wing Commander II, but also liked King's Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest, Leisure Suit Larry and all those series.

    In an attemp to help you laugh at yourself and maybe feel a bit better - you could have them chip that above statement into your tombstone.

    I don't know what else you've achieved in life, but you've always got that!

    its good to see other peeps the same age as me still playing games. I'm 34 and have been playing games since the Coleco Vision. 8 bit gaming at its best. i would get my weekly allowance and blow it all on arcade games at the mall. remember arcade rooms?! at the time, my fav was Double Dragon. Then came Street Fighter.Next was Mortal Combat.I've owned almost all game consoles from the Atari 2400 to the Sega Master system. those were the good ol' days. Games were harder to master back then. there were no continues or games saves, only cheat codes like Contras up down up down left right left right b a b a start for the first Nintendo.Then came Doom for the pc and everything changed.The games that got me hooked on pc gaming was the first version of Unreal Tournament and ofcourse the ALL MIGHTY COUNTER STRIKE 1.0! I guess i'll be a gamer for ever.i dont go more than a day or two without playing some sort of video game. Big up to all my hardcore gaming brothas n sistas out there!! Gamers rule all!! :rockout:

    The Tanger Outlet center where I work has an Arcade room! Probably my fav. part of working there... my least fav. is that i don't get paid enough to have any change to play at the arcade :(

    Well, 50 here. Interesting to know I'm not alone.

    Got back into system building a couple years back, and thought I'd finally see what gaming was like. Been enjoying Mass Effect 2 a lot. Also played Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway, Call of Duty: World at War, Wolfenstein, and others.

    Used to play arcade games on my Commodore 64 a long time ago.
