I was born at age zero. But there is a fundamental problem with how people count age.

I work off the premise that I was nine months old when I was born...

I dont see an option for 50's. Does this mean Im not born? That would explain a lot.

I was 9 months when I popped out.  If that helps.

I was born in the Space Age.  A year earlier when Neil did his walkabout.

You already have more than that for 9/11 and your point is?  One is fiction the other is fact.  Both mind boggling in complexity.

Born in 81.  I was a latchkey kid growing up in a rough neighborhood so I was basically raised by John Matrix, John Rambo, and my Nintendo. 

When I was 8 we moved across the street from my small towns mall.  So I spent most of my free time hanging out at the arcade...when i didn't have money I would just watch other kids play and shoot the breeze. Man i miss those days!

Born in 81.... Couldn't be happier. I got to experience the 80s in my own way, going to arcades and playing outside, and play pick up baseball, malls, Rotary dials... you know all that stuff that kids have no idea about today. All that pre-internet stuff.

I was fortunate to have a gamer for a dad. He introduced me to Atari 2600 and the Atari 400. I remember the arcades had a lot of different games, From Missile Command to the 4-player turtles. Not to mention the Hologram Time Traveler. I also was at a prime age to experience the Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat craze. So I can honestly say I have experienced in the wild most Arcade games from then till now.

What I missed completely is the 70s. And how Arcades were. I see clips from movies like the Original Dawn of the Dead and I go "What game is that?"
Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

I was born in 73, but I’ve kind of learned the sweet spot would’ve been born in 69. That way, your teen years would have been the mid 80s and not the early 90s.

Millennial = 0.  :lol

Yeah right.   I'm sure there are Millennials here, but are too scared to mark themselves down for fear of ridicule.  ;) Millennial is the new bad word now, replacing hipster, though they aren't exclusive to themselves.

Born 1966.  I remember a few of us riding bikes up to the 7-Eleven to play pinball and the excitement when Asteroids showed up.  Then in high school they opened up an arcade called Fun Spot and my favorite eating place Zero's pizza had a Wizard of War video game.  Several years ago I decided to buy the pinball machine that I remembered being my favorite in Fun Spot so I still own a fully functional Time Warp pin with banana flippers.  I bought a MAME cabinet premade from Hanaho games around 1999 and kept it many years till I gave it away to a friend for his kids.  I've got a full size virtual pinball machine but my build thread was on the HyperSpin website and got archived into non-existence.  I'm back working on finishing my full size virtual arcade machine.

I loved the old vector games. Asteroids, Ripoff, Armor Attack. Then when this new whiz-bang game with all the buttons, called "Defender" came out, people seemed to gravitate to those. Maybe the vector monitors didn't hold up as well.

I grew up in the Golden Age of arcade games (pre video game crash).

I am older than Saint.

Old, but not obsolete.
