You might be an old school gamer if you've played a game straight for 10+ hours because the game lacks saves, gotten to the final boss only to have the game freeze, and the blew on your cartridge and started again (and again, and again, and again...)

You might be an old school gamer if a flashing red light only means you need to blow and reposition your cartridge and not that you had to send in your system in for repair.

You might be an old school gamer if you stuff pencil erasers in the side of your controllers to still be able to play Tron.

(Anyone else have to do this for the Intellivision?)

You might be a old school gamer when the screw in part for you RC adapter broke on your NES, you just pushed in the coper part and wraped the silver wires around the male adapter on the back of the tv. "You kno you ghetto!"

Or you tried to beat the level 1-1 on Mario laying upside down over your couch.

Or while playing Rad Racer with the 3D glasses of course (yall know they didn't work) you would turn the controller like you were really steering the car.

Or if you memorized these 2 code:
Contra
up,up,down,down,left,right,left,right,B,A,(select,start for two players)
MT's Punchout
007 373 5963

I know I did 4 but it made me feel young again!
