When I was your age, playing games with friends meant going outside.
When I was your age, trophies were only earned by champions.
When I was your age, I could remember what I was gonna say next.
When I was your age, ........... :hmm: .........nah, it's gone.

When I was your age... (video games)

My controller was a joystick with one button
A video game "ball" was a square that bounced around the screen
Multiplayer was going down the arcade with your friends and waiting for your turn with a quarter
Online meant someone was stepping on the power cord of the machine

When I was your age... (Other)

Cell phones (with power pack) were bigger than your laptop
Los Angeles had two professional american football teams
We recorded songs off the radio onto cassette tapes
...and Star Wars movies were good

-survival horror was a genre
-Sega had a handheld system and it's games had theme songs
-pacman wasn't retro
-I crashed diablo because my druid was too strong
-We didn't have voice actors in video games

When I was your age... There weren't as many shitty remakes and tween movies. Milk and Gas prices were okay and I never had Facebook and a cellphone. I ACTUALLY WENT OUTSIDE AND DID PRODUCTIVE THINGS! xD

When I was your age...

We fixed games by blowing into the cartridge as hard as we could!

I had a cynical alternative to this...

When I was your age, games didn't really blow, but you really had to blow on them.

This! Exactly this!

When I was your age, we learned how to do things by ourselves and for ourselves instead of having umpteen million computerized devices do all our thinking and learning for us.

Nowadays most kids probably don't even know their parent's cell phone number because it's on speed dial. To be fair, when I was their age I didn't know my parent's cell phone either.

(Cause it didn't exist...wah wah wahhhhh...)

When I was your age I asked to borrow my folks car, not just take it.

When I was your age I gave 25% of my weekly wage into the house as my contribution, not expecting to be fed for free!

When I was your age I had respect for other peoples stuff

When I was your age I appreciated there were consequences to every action I took.

This whole thread reminds me of Ice Cube's "Doing Dumb Shit" particularly the first verse


So In the same vein, when I was your age...

...I used to hang with the seventh graders
Little bad motherfucker playing Space Invaders
Fucking with the girls in the fourth grade
Either feeling on they butts or pulling on they braids
Walking with the schoolhouse bully
By doing that, I had a lot of pull, G
Cheating on tests, making a mess
Cussing like a sailor at recess
It must a been a half moon
Cause you'll catch me running out the little girls' bathroom
Chewing on Good and Plenties
Got my gamble on at lunch pitching pennies
Yo I was living like the class clown
Pulling all the hokes, making all the jokes man
When you young it's hard to see
That it's wrong throwing rocks at the RTD
Popping out your window with a BB gun
Better yet knocking on your door and run
Playing hide-and-go-get-it for a little stank
Even though I was still shooting blanks
As soon as the dark hit
I was stealing candy out the corner market
Until I got my ass whipped
Cause I was ten years old, doing dumb shit

Blank friend requests are always rejected.  Stating you are from PSNP doesnt mean you will be accepted either.  If we don't chat here, and we don't play the same games, you'll probably get rejected.

- When I was your age, the Playstation controller didn't have analog sticks and was grey.

- When I was your age, I'd ask my mom to buy me more tokens so I could bounce around in the Jurassic Park arcade game at Chuck E' Cheese.

- When I was your age, Toonami existed. (Even though it was pretty much just DBZ all the damn time <_< )

- When I was your age, Grand Theft Auto's camera was top-down.

- When I was your age, I would beg my dad for quarters so I could play Metal Slug 3 at Pizza Hut.

When I was your age.... game controllers where rectangles.

When I was your age.... Dial up was the fastest internet in town.

When I was your age.... A/S/L was a popular question.

When I was your age.... Resurrecting threads where vogue.

When I was your age my younger sister could get a higher score on the Pac Man arcade machine at the local 7-11 store because she could memorize the path patterns better than I could.

When I was your age, arcades didn't sell beer

 

When I was your age, cellphones were as big as your hand and were as rare a holographic Mew pokemon card

 

When I was your age, Yu-gi-oh was as cool as the other side of the pillow.

 

When I was your age, Game boys had no color and there was no such thing as a "3DS"

"When I was your age"

 

We didn't have YouTube for video game walkthroughs,we had to make our own game guides with a pen & paper.
