    Default Getting old sucks

    Years ago I lost interest in playing guitar and lately I'm losing interest in arcade games. I guess I'll have to pretend I'm an old frog and do word puzzles.

    Been there too a few times. It totally sucks.
    Hope things get better for you.

    Yeah. Well, the only thing I can say is, try not to think about it that much, it will make things worse. Do anything else, the interest will come back eventually. I can't tell if there's a formula, but avoiding overthinking is always the first step.

    Naw, I'm not overthinking. Just that I'm disabled and have chronic pains.

    Shame on me then. I made a gaffe. Sorry.
    Which games have you been able to play?

    Nah, don't worry about it. Been like that since 91 (onset was 83 as a result of a stupid driver who was speeding in a neighborhood and slammed into me at a corner).

    I do mostly word games and puzzles. Seems what I'm interested in lately. I'll play my retro console once in a while, mostly c64 and Amiga.

    What about the old point and click type games?

    Oh my. So so sorry to read that.
    Anyways, what about turn based (j)rpgs? Great stories and slow gameplay (not in a bad sense).

    I got a few I'm checking out. Mostly point n click mystery games and puzzle games. I hate beat the clock games.

    I have over 4500 games to check out. That should keep me busy.

    Sure does suck! But at least without a legacy, we have the escape of auto death to look forward to.

    That's nice. Would you mind writing some names? Let's see if there's something we both played/intend to play eventually.

    That's going to be a problem because I didn't save or BM them. I remember though one was a Nintendo medieval game about a mad doctor/scientist. I remember another called Zelda. That was a fun game and I completed it.

    I remember Time Tunnel and Bonecruncher on c64. Those were my fav games. I guess if I bounce around 1000s of games I'll remember more.

    Oh, okay. Don't worry. It's not that big of a deal. Oh, Zelda. Cool. That's one of my favourite game series ever.
    I used to have a C64 when I was a little girl. My favourite games were shooters and snake-alike games.
