    Do you know what? I don't think I've played any of those. Not that I'm too young, they just either never took my fancy or I didn't have the requisite hardware at the time. My brother might have had GTA2 and possibly Driver on his PSX (?) and I have played other versions of Worms, Quake and Unreal (1), but that's the best I got.

    @ModSquid the early Worms games are quite similar, with Armageddon being almost a carbon copy of its predecessor Worms 2. I had very specific tastes (still do) - loved my arena shooters and driving games, so that's what I tended to look out for! Amazingly, most of these games still play very well even now... if you can find the hardware to run them. :)

    I was about to make a comment about how old and decrepit some of ya'll are, but then I realized I've been hanging round these parts for a full 20 years now. Hopefully I'll die in the climate wars before another 20 years pass.

    As someone on YouTube put it, "you're not old, you just need to stretch". I would add, eat lots of vegetables and protein, get plenty of outdoors time, move around throughout the day, do cardio at least once a week.

    It's so basic that it's become a cliché, the 'proper' lifestyle. But I keep meeting old as balls people who are pretty spry and comfortable, because they look after themselves. I'm working on it but finding tech is the enemy. TV, social media, computers, desk jobs, cars etc have made sitting still for hours on end the default human activity, replacing actual activity. Undoing it is a tedious active effort that must push against the current of our society. I frequently lapse into slug mode and immediately feel 'old', like so many 30-somethings and 40-somethings who have no right to feel old (medical conditions notwithstanding).

    I once met this guy in his 70's with a like new Lotus Espirit V8 twin turbo in bright yellow, I went and spoke to him asking about the car...

    "I'm 76 years old, I've had this from new, I'll drive it till I die or can't get in it!"

    He then gives it full beans leaving the petrol station and flies up the road, driven how it was intended, what a legend!

    That guy was the essence of how to live your life/retirement!

    Clearly from the poll, we're not as young as we used to be. I joined in my 20's, and now in my 50's wtf (albeit - late 20's early 50's).

    I can't believe I'm currently still the only one in the 60+ bracket (68 in 9 days)!




    Actually I still find it difficult to believe I'm this age anyway.

    Got a few years before I join the 50-59 bracket so I'm content. Consuming my greens has been the secret to keeping my boyish good looks ;)
