Wow, it was only ten years ago you were a sprightly young 60 year old on the PS2!

Oooh. Just noticed! That's 13 years now. My bad luck I suppose! An extra 'Father's Day' glass of fizz tonight to celebrate, I think.

And so it came to pass that I reached my 18th OAP Birthday. :beer:

It’s great to see that a few of the names in this thread are still around too. Sad that at least one has passed away. Always wonder what happened to those that just faded away, e.g. Old Red. Presumably lost their gaming mojo.

It was an incredible gaming time, back in 2003 and in the years that followed. Some brilliant memories of games played (loads of Socom, obviously!), competitive matches on the Gamebattles ladder, being Purplerinse captain for many years after Lorry left. But especially of establishing many friendships in a virtual world, several of whom I met briefly in Cardiff when I drove down for the meal with a young Diddy (Ben).

A great deal has changed for us all in those 18 years. My children grew up, two got married & those 2 each produced 2 fantastic grandsons, whom I’m lucky to see very regularly. I went through two redundancies followed by periods of unemployment, before going self employed in 2007.

A great shame that the writing is on the wall for this old place, but at least I have access to the Facebook page!

I shall make a point of getting onto Socom Confrontation tonight, to celebrate another anniversary. W00t! :grandpa: :beer:

Nice work old mate!

Yeah it's sad to see forums fall to the wayside in preference for the horrid social media nonsense but I guess that's progress........ not.

Gaming has also come a long way since 2003, no fiddling around with a network adaptor and its setting sto get online, havng to rush to get the gamertag you usually used on the different games as they didn't all use the Central Station Handle, great times though and i do miss them, far less oiks about online then too and even less cheaters (except on PC, that's always harboured the scum, which brings me to this cross-play bollocks we have nowadays, if i wanted to play with PC cheaters i'd get a PC, but that's a whole different matter).

Enjoy your first legal OAP drink mate and don't get too rowdy!

:)

edit: just realised, today is my 17th OAP Birthday! (it's already the 22nd here). - it seems i only realise this on this thread! :?

Strewth, it's my eldest's 18th birthday today. Hasta is older in OAP then she is in life. That's quite scarey.
