You might be old skool if you actually took the cover off your nes to get it to work better and also had to tape together your controllers after throwing them at things.

You might be an old school gamer if...

...you remember 1200 bps as once being wicked fast.

...you still have a Roland MT-32 connected to your computer.

...you ever used a hole punch to upgrade your storage media.

...you ever envied the guy with the 20MB hard disk.

...your "gaming machine" required a boot disk to start.

you might be an old school gamer if you remember watching the "Video Power" game show with Johnny Arcade as its host on television or remember watching "The Wizard" movie with its "teaser" videos for SMB3!
