you might be an old school gamer if you have to blow into the system, put the game in, turn it on, blow into it, turn it off, unplug it, take the game out, blow into it, plug it back in, repeatedly hit the power button, turn it on, turn it off, put the game in, turn it on, then yell when you see that all your high scores are gone :bomb:

If every time you're stuck in a game you look for the phone number of a tip line in the back of the game's manual("I should just look where?... what the hell is a 'GameFacts'?")... you might be an old-school gamer.

You might be an old school gamer if your first video game experience was Pitfall and E.T on the 2600 at the age of 4. Or you prayed every time you put your cartage in that your screen would not blink blue.

you might be an old school gamer if you still have a tv that works with the zapper to play duck hunt and hogans alley that still has dials on it, yell at the track and field pad for not working and have a pong machine in your basement.

You might be an old school gamer if the following phrase brings back nostalgic memories:
"You are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a boarded front door. There is a small mailbox here."
