    "So what was it like before the internet??"

    "You didn't have a phone growing up? OMG"

    "What was 9/11 like?"

    Every damn time I see the "You cannot purchase alcohol unless you were born on this day 199X"

    good point on the internet, you wanted to know something you looked at a physical entity called an encyclopedia. Christ i remember getting stuck on a game, walking into town to the game shop picking up a guide reading about where i was stuck putting back the guide and then walking back home to continue on.

    Those were the days, you had to actually play a game to finish it, no YT videos, no forums, no online friends to ask for help, just you and the game.
    I used to take the disc and memory card (PS one) to a friend whenever I got stuck somewhere, hoping he could get through it.
    The games seemed more difficult, but also way more rewarding when you finally succeeded.

    Man now I feel really old...

    The fact that I have to scroll down to find my birthyear now when prompted to enter my age on websites.

    I'd often go to stores and check out the gaming magazines for cheats, tips or walkthroughs and do those things at home if I remember them.

    The fact that I've always thought I'd never live past 20 and I'm going to be 21 soon enough.

    Hey, I'll have none of that in this thread, it's dark and depressing enough to think that Shrek came out more than a decade ago!

    In Doom 3 typing those codes stated you have a good memory.

    That some people only know Russia and that the USSR might as well be Babylon.
