This thread is inspired by the "too old for Call of Duty" thread. As a gaming dad seeing all the awesome stuff out now, I'm kind of jealous I grew up in the 80s where most of my gaming was limited to a weekend arcade run. I'm also jealous that gaming is accepted vs something that got you stuffed in lockers over.
For example, son likes to watch gaming shows on Disney XD where all these cool commentators hang out on set. That got me thinking - I'm a pretty funny guy and good conversationalist. If only I was in my 20s I could have been an awesome YouTube personality getting invited to exclusive events. I'm happy that I still get to do the occasional magazine article on gaming and tech, but at cons like PAX it's obvious there's this whole other special media world for the young glamorous set.
