Pinball (any but I had favs)
Breakout, Arkanoid, all those
Space Invaders / Mrs. Pacman / standards
Minecraft (lots of quarters on Minecraft).
Special Note on Breakout: This will age me perfectly:
Teenagers at the community center played one song every time I was playing Breakout and it’s forever linked in my head:
a) That song was current-ish (on the jukebox, a community music playing device with microtransactions)
b) I was not yet a teenager.
c) I was old enough to be playing and enjoying video games
d) I was independent enough to spend hours by myself in public
e) teenagers were still another species to me. (I could not relate yet)
How old was I? (no cheating)
Differences flatten out over time. My 13 yr old nephew sees a HUGE difference between “his generation” and kids that are 10+11 and those over 16. Minecraft kids don’t like Fortnite kids.
I was raised in a suburb that was pretty “age classist” and orchestrated by adults. Youth were well kept in age ranges. Didn’t like it then but what could I do? Oh – I got myself into a private high school (scholarship) that was K-12 by 9th grade so I broke out.
