    I was born three years before Need for Speed debuted and I love a lot of the old arcade classics dearly.

    As I grew older, I cut my teeth on Half-Life, Splinter Cell and Jedi Academy (action), Midnight Club II (racing), Dungeon Siege and Baldur’s Gate (RPG) and Warcraft III and Battle Realms (strategy)…and I also developed taste for rare art pieces like Infernal, Sid Meier’s Pirates, Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, Heroes of Might and Magic, and one of my prized gems, Second Sight…and a few good GTAs, too.

    Now, I’m in the middle of a PSP throwback with Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Midnight Club III, Gun: Showdown, Burnout Legends, and MotorStorm: Arctic Edge. (Can you believe I’m getting paid to find out how to incorporate games into academia?)

    (Look these gems up on Gamespot and Wikipedia. They’re classic.)

    In 1984 I was in a bar with a couple of co-workers and one got me to play Pac-Man. Last time I played any video game.

    I was born post Pac-Man, but I still know it and have played it.
    My game of choice has always been Descent, but you know, that was back in the day.

    You kids today. Anyone else here remember Pong?

    Never got the hang of Pac-Man…never got the hang of anything later, either. All the games on my computer(s) either came with the computer or were associational with something else. Pong was fun, though.

    Oh gosh, that really is possible. He’d be 9 at the most.

    I was born pre nintendo, in the height of the video game crash

    Me too, the first edition, not just the remake.

    Me, too! And I had to go to a neighbor’s house to watch it!

    So who says these new comics are just for the really young?

    They’re in a maze of twisty passages, all alike.

    I preferred some of the other video games including “Defender” to protect humans from an alien invasion.

    They’re just a little young for Pac-man.

    I loved Beany and Cecil!
