    HELP! :lease:

    I am one of those 4o+ gamers who unitl they ventured into the world of Xbox live thought they were pretty good (well ok). I have only been online for a week or so and would like to add gamers of my age and abilty to my 'friends list'.

    I'm still a novice when it comes to online gaming but hopefully getting better day by day Tiger, COD2, GRAW and FIFA are the games I've tried on line anyone wishing to play someone woh has re-found his youth or as his wife would say 'a big kid who never lost it' let me know....18 holes at Sawgrass or a deathmatch in Stalingrad let me know

    Cheers

    However, for the record I have a few more years before I hit the big four zero. :D

    And look at his weedy gamerscore. Kids today eh? When I were a lad we wouldn't have shown our faces on a forum like this with less than 10,000 in the gamerscore bank :rotfl:.

    I'm surprised at the number of 40+ers too though. Thought I was one of the oldest at 36 but now I feel young again. Although I am old enough to remember going to the arcades and playing a game for 10p, I bet our 17 year old friend can't lay claim to that. I'm not talking about one of them new fangled 10p's that look like 5p's though, oh no. I'm talking about the old big ones, from back when 10p was worth something and it felt like it too.

    Maybe he traded one? But even so, detective Steve does it again :D. Did you notice though, straight out with a feeble excuse. Kids today always have an excuse :D ;).

    Yep, it is quite refreshing to be amongst so many gamers of a similar (or older) age... Live is so much better since I found these forums :smashin:

    And yes 10p used to buy you quite a lot - 30 mojo's for instance... or a bus ticket to school... and my school was a fair distance away :)

    Oh they certainly do, teenagers are by far the worst for this... you should hear some of the excuses they come up with for being late for work :eek: I would never have had the nerve to use them at their age (or even now for that matter!). :rolleyes:

    We only ever got 20 mojo's round our way :(. Actually, there was one shop which did 4 for a penny but it was in a dodgy area any you only went there if you didn't mind the risk of getting your money nicked. It was rarely worth the extra Mojo's :).

    We should watch out though, better not rib the young 'un too much... He might tell his mum on us :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: .

    33 last week old and worn out (i spend my life in bed :rotfl: ) so if anyone want to add me feel free as about most days from 12pm. My step dad plays alot as well (hes 46) and Im trying to talk him into getting his own machine so we can do link ups (I got him into games when I was 17 as hes a games addict now but had never touched them when I met him). We even had a split screen game co-op on gr3 at weekend.

    I miss the old 1p cola bottles anyway whatever happened to them (I mean the proper coca cola ones not the fizzy and still tiny ones you get nowadays) and gorgo bars and of course space dust!

    Thanks to all who replied....I'm glad I'm not the only one who has to no doubt continually explain to his wife that 'I'm catching up on my lost youth'...I'll add your names to my friends list which at the moment stands at 0 (Billy No Mates) Anyway thanks a lot everyone even the young wipper snapper who tried his best to hijack the thread!:smashin:

    I'm no catching up, I'm just extending a misspent youth :D. Fortunately the missus doesn't give me any grief and she has been known to get completely absorbed when she starts playing. There was one particular 8 hour Pikmin session that springs to mind!
