Hey man, my mom was pretty much the same way. I borrowed the Halo disc from a friend of mine whose computer wasn't good enough to play it. (Mine wasn't either, but nevertheless, I did it.) I never bought that shit either, is the point, and even then, it was years after people started talking about the game/all my friends were already playing it.
Still, I was allowed to play Mario 64…I'm sorry Anon. You can still have the joy of playing those games now, but yeah, I don't think the worlds will feel as real, massive, and important…games def changed my life in a huge way because of when I played them…
Your gameboy memory I can totally relate to - it was hard as shit to play before backlit screens came around. I tried picking up my gameboy advance original the other day - scratched up screen with no backlight was damn near impossible to play Kirby's Pinball Land on. >>319>>320>random late night anime that you don't understand
My man. FLCL, Big O, Ruroni Kenshin - shows I thought were the shit, but I'd only see here or there, or just happen to see duplicate episodes of on random nights when my parents were asleep early. Luckily shows that are still around and that I can look up/download today.
I duno if anybody else watched "Our Gang: The Little Rascals" but I used to go get the VHS tapes from the library with my mom and we'd watch those. Recently found a torrent of them, and they're still really funny/comfy/good.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
