... when you're happy the Steam release of the old Lucas Arts graphic adventures has come out so you can replay classics, and not finally get to play them.

... when you compare EQ to a DikuMUD and not WoW to EQ, or a newer game to WoW.

...you know why you should hold down reset before turning the power off on an NES.

...you were nervous when you forgot to do it.

...you know who jumps higher, Mario or Luigi.

...you know which boards to use Peach on.

...you played the ORIGINAL Castle Wolfenstein.

...you know how to say "Qix."

...you know that Donkey Kong had a son long before Diddy Kong.

...you know that there was, is now, and forever shall be, only 1 James Bond game, and it is Goldeneye. Amen.

oh god yes the original monochrome very deep wolfenstein.. god that game was awesome....

hehe i'm really happy i made this thread, i'm glad theres so many of us around!

anyway.. you know your a long time gamer when: you find this joke hillarious:

Ever since the age of 12 bob spent his whole life playing Doom and Doom2. He never really did much else... At the age of 40 something.. he died.

at the gates of Heaven, St. Peter said to him "so... well you never really sinned... ever so I cant damn you, but... well you never really did any good so we cant allow you into heaven... so while we figure out what to do with you, we'll give you 3 wishes..."

bob grins and says "great, give me IDDQD"
"whats IDDQD?" asks Peter.... "it doesnt matter" he just grants bob IDDQD "next?"

"gimme IDKFA!!"
Peter doesnt bother.. he waves his hands and grants bob IDKFA "and?"

"SEND ME TO HELL!!"

Some of the best games in history didn't even need buttons. Pac Man and Pong, for example.

... You wonder why the need for more than a D-pad and two/three buttons on a controller.

But at least the NES controller could take it. If you tried biting a Wiimote you'd probably crunch right through it.

You can't even THROW controllers anymore. Time was, you'd get hit by a Hammer Bros. hammer, you'd spike the NES controller, and it would more than likely just bounce back up into your hand. At the worst you'd have to worry about damaging your floor.

God Of War made me spike my SixaxiS. A mini-screwdriver and 4 hours later I was able to restore limited function to the R2 button.
I tell ya, they just don't make 'em like they used to.

Am I the only person on the internet who has never once broken a controller in frustration? I just hurl profanity at my television, then flip it off once I pass the section that is vexing me. Sometimes I even say "THAT'S how it's done, bitch.". This behavior makes my wife laugh at me.

I have never broken a controller in frustration either.
