Am I old?

#1 - 18. Dec 2016 16:34
So I was lecturing some students the other day, and during one of the breaks this conversation happened.

Student: Espen, are you a gamer?
Me: I play now and again, but not as much as I used to.
Student: What did you used to play?
Me: Back in the day I played a lot of Counter-Strike.
Student: Ah, cool. CS:GO?
Me: Haha, no, before that.
Student: Oh you mean like CS: Source?
Me:...no I mean before that, like 1.5 and stuff.
Student: Oh... wow.

And it occurred to me that a lot of players today have probably never heard of the older versions like 1.6
Now I feel old!

btw, HI!

I guess most people that visit style productions are as "old" as you.
I myself am one of the younger people who have started playing Counter-Strike in CS:GO.

Classic espen thread. Disappears for years at a time just to pop in every once in a while and tell everyone how "old" he feels in a gaming community that spans nearly 18 years xD

Yes you are an old fart, just like many other people. But don't worry, if you manage to get very old, there will only be a few farts as old as you :-)

Interesting, for me it was REALLY WEIRD but flattering when I was watching my 14 year-old cousin doing exactly what I did when I was 14, editing on Sony Vegas and recording frags and uploading them on youtube. But he uses CS:GO and it just brings me back the memories :X. He also apparently makes money off it while I never got a single cent. Kids these days :X. Oh and he has an Alienware
