You forget Star Wars & Trek, @Zeldafan79.... A Team, Buck Rogers, Mission Impossible series and MacGyver, for a start

the era of renting more games than we owned.
no internet walkthroughs.
just game magazines for tips.

Yes the good old days where you literally getsurprised by the game when you played it. Today everything is revealed on the Internet on day one.
Actually the only reason we received a NES on Christmas was because we rented one with Castlevania before hand!

Ah, the Eighties, when nobody thought twice about that nice young Michael Jackson fella singing about his love for a PYT (Pretty Young Thing)...

I may be 24 (turning 25 on October 24) but I remember the good old days of no internet walkthroughs. Well, there was internet, but I never used it.

Lol I mistakenly assumed at 34, I'd be one of the oldest here. Guess not.

I'm pretty sure I count as "old school" though, given that my first gaming experiences were on the Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum, which predated the NES (which is kinda the beginning of the games industry as its currently understood)

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

My heart just sank when I saw old school. I still feel like it's the 90s and I'm in my teens. I'm 36.

Y'know this has me thinking [queue old person tangent] our generation (lets say 30 somethings) was probably the last one to go to school without cell phones being a major thing. I know they were around but I didn't have one until after I graduated. Heck, in elementary school we barely had computers. We had a "computer lab" with about a dozen that were shared among all the classes. They had Mario Teaches Typing on them (as was the style at the time). We probably were the last generation to have VHS tapes, cassette tapes, and rf adapters. The point i'm slowly working towards is - i'm technically a millennial but i have more life experience with ruddy, low-fi, analog stuff and most of the time that's what gives me the nostalgic warm fuzzies. I hate facebook (dont even have one), twitter, and the "always on" condition.

And back in the day nickels had pictures of bees on them. "Gimme five bees for a quarter", you'd say..... [ramble, ramble]

Ironically, always being connected often makes me feel more isolated. I couldn't tell you the last time I had a conversation on the phone.

@Losermagnet Donkey Kong Country Returns feels very heavy and I'm not a fan of the new enemies and how you control the characters at the same time. It doesn't have better gameplay, art, music, animation nor characters than the original trilogy and there are just a few Kong members and animal buddies. The level design is good but not great with only a few surprising stages but Rare did much more than that. Every little thing that DKCR changed is worse than what Rare created, Rare basically created the whole Kong universe, and Retro only added one of two interesting ideas and removed tons of them. Tropical Freeze is better than Returns, at least they hired new graphic artists that did a better job designing the enemies and David Wise is back as composer but the rest is pretty much Returns but prettier.

@Losermagnet @Slowdive I agree, as millennials (next generation is Generation Z), we were the first to use the current technologies but we weren't obsessed with them as now everyone, young and old, are. Because we have lived that change in our youth, we can see the worst part of the new times. Paradoxically, most older people don't mind the change but for us those changes ruined the fun, that is, clubs, talking to strangers, normal dating, using the phone for calls, etc. Today, making friends and finding a partner is much more complicated and unnatural and that makes me sad.
