Come on in!
« on: February 24, 2006, 09:34:51 PM »
Everybody introduce yourself here :)
I'll go first.

My name is Kushan, I'm from Ireland although I currently live in England while I study at University.

I'm studying Computer Games Technology, still in my first year but so far it's going well.

I hope to eventually become a proper games programmer for consoles like the DS ^_^

Ok, now your turn :P

I'm bruceg,

I'm from the USA as well.  I own all the video game systems out there, but I mainly collect, so I'm not very good anymore (eye hand coordination skills have gone way downhill).

I also can't believe Roger Poco was a prison guard.  He looks like he's too damn nice (saw his picture with his turtle).  Probably treated the prisoners well also.  Well, he's a nurse now, so he's treating people well all the time  ;D

Listen,though.Im over 30,3 kids(11,7,5).Oldest(son)plays nds(really he is primarily interested in home consoles)2 daughters play the GBA nonstop(Daddy will you flash..... ;))
I think bruce,whats throwing you on the age is that people right in our age bracket have pretty much been privvy to the entire evolution of"Video games"(Im going back to 1968,1969-Spacewar,people have their own opinion.from the reading i have done,it seems to have had the most profound impact)
Anyway,as the hobby matures,the age brackets it will support will continue to grow.its hard to go to the pro shop at a golf course in the us without Tiger Woods 05,06,whatever,playing on the tv.i have seen a group of 3 65 year old men,gathered around playing.

So dont feel too bad.The days are short sometimes,but life is long.

I am dying for the Revolution(ummm..-not quite what i mean,i guess.).

Truth be told,ive been in the sony camp for a decade now,and had pretty much written off Nintendo altogether.Son still had N64(1997,1998,1999,somewhere around there),but no Nintendo for me.
Neo-Flash has actually caused me to give them more of my money than ever,and i have created three game playing rugrat freak-o kids ;D,that will buy games for the rest of their lives.
Hows that for advertising,Big N... ;)

My first video game system was the atari 2600 (it was the greatest system I had ever owned up to that point -- I meant before we had Pong, but the 2600 could play all these new cartridges.  My dad drove me miles to get the latest cartridges that came out.  Then, in the 80s-90s, I would hang out at the arcades all the time, since the games there were better than on any "home" video game system. 

Well, the arcades in my area all closed eventually, and now the home consoles, and even handhelds are getting really powerful nowadays, so that's why I'm here (long story short)

Well, kinda late joining the discussion, but I'm here in cold Canada (at least, its cold and snowy today...) and have been living here all of my 29 years.

I spent a bit of time in college with Electronics Engineering (and had an intro to C++ that got me hooked, logic and math being my strong points).

The first console I owned was an Intellivision. I think my dad found it at some auction, it had a tonne of games (2 shoeboxes full) but those controllers never did work right. I built my own though that did work, being about 10 at the time, that was quite an accomplishment (I didnt even have a voltmeter to trace the connections inside :).

I think in my lifetime I have seen one of the greatest things happen: an actual bridge to the "generation gap". And yep, all thank to video games (and one of its distant cousins, the internet).

cory, we all know how smart you are, so further revelations about being a child prodigy really come as no surprise  :D
