    VCR's were great, the auld fella never got the concept of watching 1 channel and recording another, so i'd set up the player to record Raw on a friday night and arrive home to find 2 hours of a talk show recorded instead.

    Remembering that the key to getting to Oregon safely is to buy lots of ammo and parts for your wagon.

    Have you seen the Organ Trail? It's actually pretty fun. You can find it on Steam.

    People not understanding my pop culture references usually does it for me, although there are a few people here that understand my sense of humor. Being at school does it too. I'm a good 10 years older than most students there, and I relate to them a little less every day

    Any angles for replay value?

    Although I guess it was cheap enough that it shouldn't really matter

    If you have the paid edition maybe. Supposedly has bosses and stuff. I played the free one which is about as replayable as Oregon Trail. Probably good for a laugh every once in awhile. I almost laughed out loud at work when someone caught dysentery

    There's a free one? That would have been nice to know.

    And on topic, I stopped to buy cigarettes on my way home tonight, and the guy carded me. Then when he saw my ID he was oh sh** you're 30. Sorry. That one certainly did it.

    My mental age is five years ahead of my physical age and I missed/dodged to current American youth culture and I get along socially better with ages 25-dead . So yeah 17 going 18 and I already feel old.

    Yeah I just tried the free version and it kept crashing on me. The paid version hasn't done that at all. I didn't play far enough in either yet to notice any gameplay differences though. It'd definitely be a fun phone game. I find that I end up playing the more simple ones more often because I usually end up playing with my phone when I'm like sitting in a waiting room or something when I don't have a lot of time or attention to give. I play a variant of scorched earth more often than anything else. I have a couple decent tower defense games too.

    Oh and Gurk 1 and 2. Those games are awesome

    I'm still addicted to Bad Piggies. I shaved a dramatic amount of time off of a time trial and immediately went to reproduce my vehicle in every other instance I thought had a chance of working. Definitely my go to game. That and machinarium are about the only things I've paid for on my phone.

    Soris, I was the youngest of five so I know the hanging out with the older crowd deal a good bit. I actually still remember my first true old man moment though. Stupid JP Losman. Growing up with football the assumption for most of my life was that the quarterback is to be looked up to. The wise and powerful leader. Usually traits of someone older than you. While technically he is older than me, it's only a couple months. That jerk had the audacity to be close enough in age to make me realize that maybe I'm supposed to be an adult too.

    Bad Piggies? It's an engineering game which is weird. Free on Android though so that's an easy yes on worth a try

    Well damn. I'm still young enough to feel too young when I get carded, but that probably hurt sad

    Oh, and regarding Bad Piggies, it's by Rovio and in the Angry Birds universe but don't let that aspect turn you off of it, it's quite an amazing and challenging game. The kind of vehicles you can make to launch your piggies to the finish line are amazing and sometimes hilarious.
