    I don't really consider the N64 to be "old school". I like old school games. I still dust them off on occasion. A few months ago some friends and I were hanging out, drinking and we dusted off our friends old 2600 and spent some time playing Combat, Space Invaders, Asteroids, River Raid, Pitfall, Pac-Man, Q* Bert....

    and uhh...smurgen. during those "days" when you "HAD" to go to a book store and buy a book of codes for the C64 they had stores that sold actual game cartridges and software.

    Yea i know they had carts and things, again later on in the releases. But some of the best indie games had releases either in a computer magazine or in a book as i mentioned

    One game that should be brought up. Because it was one of the best games you got to play at school is Oregon Trail! I loved that game. I found the newer versions of it just seem to lack something though.

    There was this one game, can't remember the name, for the Apple II that was basically, like, you built a monster and did stuff.

    Oh, and my Middle School Math teacher had Marathon running on the school's network. When I saw the Halo map the memories came flooding back.

    Good times...

    at my high school the PC lab had Doom on the network. They were all like 386's or something I think. When more than like 6 or 7 people would play Doom the whole thing would crash.

    I was born clutching a 2600 paddle. One of my games was ET, and I think it fair to say that it's legendary suckyness was not overexaggerated- I remember that it was even worse then my Kool-Aid Man game (which didn't actually run). I got a NES when I was 6. The rest, they say, is history.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.

    Well the PSX is I think it's safe to say part of that gen, and nobody's talking about that as classic gaming.

    Or maybe they are, and I'm just getting blind and senile in my old age.

    Which isn't that old, compared to some people here.

    You know...I miss the days of going to the arcades with my friends. Sometimes cutting out early from school...I miss the days when Street Fighter 2 was the thing to go play. In 8th grade the neighborhood my Middle School was in had a bunch of corner stores that had Street Fighter 2 machines in them. Many even had a Neo-Geo MVS with atleast Fatal Fury in them. Which I used to often play while waiting in line to play SF2. And a couple of the real arcade even got SF2 CE. and later SSF2 on one of those 50 inch screens.
