So I was going through pics my parents have and found this gem of myself. I am 30 years old now and I have no idea how old I was in the picture but that is a joystick for my Commodore 64 :)  Just look at the concentration on that face , the pimping brown gamer chair, lol

The way you held your joystick seems to make it look like its part of your body.

Hah! 
Only sad thing is that it is sitting rather low on his body. 
That would mean he probably had super tiny legs and a long body.  
Freakshow! join the circus or something!

That actually is a pretty awesome pic. 
 
I would take my consoles and games up to my room and put them in my bed with me while I slept. When I woke up I would be covered in my presents, and then I would hook everything up and play them. The only reason I didn't play my games right away is because I would usually wake up around 3 or 4am.

@Gamer_152: Curious where your icon is from. By sheer coincidence I just watched this video and noticed John's shirt has the same design!

The 80s were the greatest era in history. No time period has been or will ever be as lame and simultaneously awesome all at once.
