AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH… THIS COMIC MAKES ME FEEL OLD!
It’s all fun and games until somebody loses their Pong.
I’m so old I can’t tell if that’s a Wii!
Boy its not very super to see the genesis of the gaming systems so down and out
My gpa lived from hoer and buggy to man on the moon. That’s scarier.
Chutes and Ladders must be in another alley.
I know a few geeks that would love to have those systems just for the collection aspect if not to play them still, graphics or not.
I still have problems with my wrist from playing Pac-Man.
I have trouble admitting this, but I once owned a Trash 80.
I can remember when Atari was not just a game machine, but the finest computer made at the time. Hand me my cane, would ya?
No guys, stop complaining about your age. The electronics industry has just fast forwarded at a rate nobody expected. Be proud that you were there for the start!!
Wish I’d saved it. I had an Atari. It had 64K of RAM, and on the box was the question, ’What are you gonna do with all of that memory?"
My doctor finally found a prescription that cured my Asteroids.
They forgot Coleco!
I was until I found my Palm Pilot and I-pad did it better!
Time for the old joke: A Nintendo engineer, a Sega engineer, and an Atari engineer are vacationing together in a place where the only penalty for any infraction of the law is death. Somehow these guys find themselves on the wrong side of the law; and the Nintendo engineer is the first one to the guillotine. When the blade jams, he screams, “Ha! I know the law on executions here; you now have to release me!” And he runs like h-e-double hockey sticks. So they march the Sega engineer to the guillotine; and again the blade jams. “I’m outta here!” he cries and blows town. Finally they bring up the Atari engineer; and for the third time the blade jams as they try to execute their prisoner. The Atari engineer says, “Hold on here; I think I see your problem…”
They’re still the ones to have!
I had one of the very first home video games, two “paddles” and tennis was the main game. It also came with color clings you put on the TV screen for color for the games.
And then I also owned a Timex Sinclair 1000, complete with a massive 16K memory module and a cassette tape back-up drive. High tech for the times actually.
For them it’s… game over.
