I am 38, and also lived through pong, mattell handheld LED games, Atari etc.

When playing a current gen game that isn't quite up to par, or perhaps has some annoying deficiency, I try to think "what would I have thought of this game 20....or even 10 years ago? And often I end up really enjoying the game more, and appreciating the things it does well, and I am not so bothered by things like the CPU poorly managing the clock or repetitive commentary etc.

Re: Looking Back in Time at 30 Years

I remember getting those handheld electronic football and baseball games for Christmas. I thought that was the greatest gift in the world. My friend got the atari 2600 with football and baseball and we played over at his house for hours and hours.
