Tell us your atariAGE!

Recommended Posts

Ah, what the heck. I won't be the youngest or oldest by any means, more or less dead on average.

 

Demographics: 33, married with 3 kids (19 month old triplets). I got a Video Pinball (which I still have) in 1980-81-ish, and an Atari 400 in 1982.

 

Sad fact: I went to the dump to get rid of a broken monitor today and almost came home with a Laser 128 Apple compatible that someone threw out, but my wife wouldn't let me in the car with it.

dang! I didn't think that atari fans got any younger than I am! I was born 05/03/84!

 

As for my first system, it's the Atari 2600! I actually found the original payment slip for it and found that my family has had the 2600 since I was about a month old. So I learned how to repair my atari 2600 when I was pretty young seeing on as how some of the controllers were starting to act up when I was about 8. I actually didn't have any other system until about 1997 when I purchased the Atari Jaguar. Then I got an Atari Lynx, and I don't remember where I went from there. Maybe the 5200?

I want to start a little contest: who is the youngest and the oldest classic-gamer

on the AtariAge board?

 

I think i am the typical classic gamer, because i am 30 (born on 14.august 1971)

 

What is your birthday?

These old threads are crazy! Born in 1971 is 47, not 30! :lol:

I'm currently 29 and started posting here when I was 13, needless to say I've come a long way from being an annoying teen who used emoticons way too much.

I was born in February of 1985 so at the moment I'm 33, soon to be 34. :)

Yikes! So right between the 7800 and the NES! You're the opposite of retro, kid!
