    I think one of the benefits of being today's "old-school-gamer" is to have been able to watch the evoluton of game consoles. Most of us will have played on the old Atari 2600 (or even older were the games required you to put a plastic sheet over your TV screen) and can recall how things got progressively better. You can almost draw a line between generations of consoles, especially around the time when their names began getting suffixed by factors of 8.

    Then there was that huge turning point when consoles and home computers started producing better graphics than "stand-up" video arcade games. Suddenly, our living room couches became more fun than travelling to the local mall with a pocket full of quarters. Oh sure, video arcade games tried to follow suit. But they started becoming less about gameplay and skill, and more about paying for time to play. I miss the days when I spent a good 20-30 minutes on a machine with just one quarter.

    I'll be disappointed if a Pong port (not a remake, a port) isn't the first game made available for OSVR :D

    As a 41 year old, I guess I'm an older gamer. Two kids. But I still love it and have started introducing my kids to characters and games, starting now with the Atari 2600. I plan to walk them through the console generations, so next is NES, then Super NES, then Gamecube, then Xbox 360.

    Just read about some older stars that are successful and still game, like Jimmy Falon and Elon Musk. Lots of others too like Vin Diesel, Jack Black, Mila Kunis, Rosario Dawson, late Robin Williams, Jessica Alba and of course Min-Liang Tan!

    My favorites on the 2600 were Megamania, Yars Revenge, and the original Pitfall.
    While my brother has that console now I still remember the WEEKS of time spent on those games and the several joysticks we had to replace. It's important to note that I think the industrial engineering of the controllers is a key component to the gaming experience that we "older" gamers can enjoy, since there is much more control afforded with modern consoles than we had with a one-button joystick. Good design and ergonomics make for more comfortable gameplay and it makes it possible to play for a longer period of time, but I will admit I don't take full advantage of ideal grasp position on an OEM XBOX controller.
    Still, I have not tried the a modern interpretation of Yars Revenge: http://store.steampowered.com/app/99120/ :)

    Turning 37 this week, started gaming on a 2600 but really got hooked on a ColecoVision. Back in the day, I'd argue with friends about gaming on the Apple ][ vs our ColecoVisions, then our NESes against our early IBM compatible PCs. Great to think that I've been debating computer vs console gaming for decades.
