In other news, the forum will sooner or later need to be renamed "Mad Man's retirement home". My arthritis is getting worse, and, ach, my eyesight is not what it used to be.
Perhaps I've watched too many Hong Kong movies, but aging only means increased power levels and treachery. :b
4 years away from 50 here, my eye sight has taken a hit over the past three years. Always been bad, but now the decreased elasticity of cornea means I'm in bi-focal territory. A rotator cuff injury makes my joystick arm less durable for prolonged sessions.
This may also be why I find myself preferring wizened characters in fighting games these days. Although there is a lack of solid middle aged fighting characters. There's a solid 10-20, then 60-∞ assortment, but not a whole lot for middle aged ranks.
FGC Retirement Community sounds good. Keep the mind active, and moral up. Teach the younger generation of caregivers the old ways of the FGC to continue the legacy of the genre I love. :P
