I'm a 18-year old college student at San Jose State University. I work at a Flea Market on weekends and get paid to harass people, and setup and breakdown the equipment for the mariachi band on Sundays.

It's been my lifelong dream to setup and breakdown for a mariachi band.

You are the luckiest man in the world. :rah:

It's actually kind of fun, because I get to cruise around in a little cart that (assuming I take off the trailer for all the equipment) I can do incredibly small donuts (I'm talking small - like a 7' diameter) in at about 20MPH.

"Too old" is a state of mind and has nothing to do with the number of birthday's you've had.

Besides... you're only young once, but you can be immature forever !!!

I'm 19, in college and i live in NYC. I'm not so much obsessed with the game, BUT i play it whenever i can, even with my girlfriend and other friends around, they have laughs off the game so much. I'm a Computer major, so the gameplay and graphics of the game is what interests me. The way everything is put out in the game. like a fully explorable......everything, it pretty interesting. I'm trying to figure it out for myself. Eventually, I'll pull apart the PS2, and have a look inside and just see what makes it tick  :D

Work @ a Law Firm, sometimes play Vice City during Lunch w/ colleagues. ;)

To Pumpkin, actually YOU shouldn't be playing this game,   If we were going by age.  Those "old" guys are the ones making your games......Your statements show your mautrity level, that goes for everyone.  There's a fine line between confindence & concided.  

But we're not here to restrict others :cool:

So, Keep on Killin... :r*:

Uh . . . which part?  The first part you'd hear at your typical AA meeting, the second part is from a Chris Farley sketch on SNL . . .

I'm not going to assume anything by saying this, but I hope that today's youth realize that the stuff Eminem and Puff Daddy put in their music isn't necessarily original . . .

Heh, I'm 15 years old. I have 3 games for PS2, and two of them are GTA games. They may be aimed at adults, but the GTA games are the best games I've ever played. Right now I'm 40% done with this game, and I think most of my main missions are over.

39, father of 1, web developer.

To the younger ones on this board -  as Noisses024 said  "Those "old" guys are the ones making your games". How true that is. I have been playing video games since Pong came out (when I was 12) for the home and Pac Man and Donkey Kong were the "cutting edge" games. If it wasn't for us "older guys" that were playing games abck then and contiuned to play them you "younger guys" wouldn't even HAVE video games. So be kind to us "older" guys :)

Alright, WTF IS THIS sh*t.

Video game=Usually played by a teenager. Your acting like it's a damn way of life or some sh*t like that. That statement you said just pisses me off. But keep in the back of your mind that Vice city is a VIDEO GAME.

I love the way so many "text messages" in this forum get interpreted as "angry" or "condesending" or "nagging."

Some of the "interpretation" is due to poor writing, but most of it has a lot to do with the  HUGE chip on the shoulder of the person reading it.

If you have a something mean or condesending or nagging to say, then use a frickin' smiley and slap it on the end so that the disgruntled youth of America in this forum will know when to get mad and when to use an emotion other than default. :O

So if someone types something you don't agree with, chances are it's just an opinion.  People have those.  They share them with others.  If you don't share the same opinion, feel free to disagree, but remember you don't know any of the people in here and they don't know you, so chances are good that their opinions were not directed at you or intended to offend you.

Just tellin' it like it is . . .
