r/gaming – How I feel browsing this sub sometimes.

I am such an old fart that my brain considers Mario Galaxy “after my time.” Like, I was already a grown-ass man with a full time job when it came out, so I was too busy to ever play it.

I exist in yon auld days of yore, with Super Mario World on SNES, and Star Fox (the fucking first one), and Metroid, and Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2. I got so good at Smash 64 that my high school friends had to 3v1 me to win.

I played fucking Warcraft: Orcs and Humans. I was hype as fuck for the release of Starcraft 1 (not Brood War, the base fucking game). I mowed lawns all summer to buy my own PC so I could play it. As a legal adult, I played WoW when it first released, and stuck with it all the way through Battle for Azeroth.

I’m ready for the retirement home, wtf. What happens to the time.
