Anyone miss being a kid?

dmartinationdmartination ogden, UTMember Posts: 25
I am almost 20 and I am really missing my childhood. MMORPGS were a big part of it and I really miss them. Now a days they are no fun. I hop to mmorpgs faster than i can finish eating dinner. Jagex even released a 2007 server of there game. I was a huge runescape gamer at point and that is not even fun anymore. I really miss when mmorpgs miss were fun and I enjoyed them. I also miss when MMORPGS came out and they werent all failures. Who else wishes they could go back in time??

    Sometimes i miss not having the responsibility I have today. Bills bills and more bills. Working 70 hours or more a week on average.

    I was an adult when MMOs came out so that is not a deciding factor.

    however I do love sex, and wouldn't want to go back to not having it.

    Yes... my childhood years were the best years of my life by far, I enjoyed everything more and I did more...all while being worry free, how the times have changed.

    You forgot "awkward around gurlz" and "more comfortable with physics", assuming you were shooting for the Complete Nerd Package.

    So yeah, kid had it's bad points.

    But so does blood pressure medication and proctologist appointments :/

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    The only part of being a kid I miss is the lack of responsibility.  Overall, no.

    Kinda do, things being easier and all that... not knowing how to calculate the volume of 3-dimensional object of unknown shape using a triple integral was blissful XD

    Nope. I like knowing things and making informed decisions.

    I miss school holidays, you don't get enough once you start regular employment.

  • rojoArcueidrojoArcueid GinnungagapMember Posts: 8,042 Rare

    the only thing i miss from my childhood is going to the wilds with my brother an his friends hunting birds with slingshots to take home and cook them when my parents were at work lol. Going to all the rivers out of my hometown on a horse. Stealing mangos and coconuts from some random fields outside of town and being chased by the random old man taking care of the field  hehe. And playing mortal kombat for the first time on my brothers genesis when my mom was not home lol.

    i do miss those times, but i will never want to go back. Adult life can be delicious in its own ways. Oh yes.

    I don't miss being a kid at all.  Some of us had really shitty lives as children.  I couldn't even conceive of getting a computer or playing games for more than 2-3 hours a week until I left home, let alone play MMOs.  Even if I could, when your family is deciding which utility they should do without from one month to the next, playing online video games becomes an impossible fantasy.

     

    So no, I don't miss it.  Be thankful to your parents for providing you with a good enough life that you can relate to other gamers.

    Sorry, all due respect, but at 20 you still are a kid.

    The scary part is one day the world will be run by adults who were never spanked as kids and got trophies just for participating.

    Yeah, a little bit.  Thinking back to junior year of college.  Parents paid for school and all spending money. (although was limited to 10.00/wk)

    All I had to worry about was going to class and getting decent grades, drinking far too much and chasing tail. (all sexually transmitted diseases were curable and non-fatal as well).  Pot was almost legal or overlooked (big regression on that in the 80's and 90's) and life was about as carefree as it could get.

    Only thing missing was computer games, which arrived the following year on the schools mainframe computers in the form of a Star Trek game.  (Arcade games had arrived in the form of Space invaders and some others)

     

     

    "Winning" at EVE Online since May, 2007! 

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Don't just play games, inhabit virtual worlds™

    My childhood was practically dictated by video games.  They took off right around the time I was in 2nd or 3rd grade.  I found a random wad of $20 bills in a parking lot that added up to $160 and I got to keep it all...First thing I did was go to the game store and buy an Atari 2600 and the games River Raid and Warlords and Combat and Pitfall to name a few.  I had a couple good years with the Atari and countless hours of fun.  Then around the 5th grade we (me and my brothers) got a Nintendo for Christmas (even though my Dad threatened to take it back after some trouble we got in to.)  Talk about upping your game!  Super Mario Bros, Punch out, Final Fantasy, Zelda...plus countless other games.  It was even better then the Atari and me and my friends traded games and gamed all the time.  It was pure bliss and obssession.  This is when I started playing RPGs and got obsessed with them.  I also got into DnD around this time also.  Of course games evolved as I grew older and they constantly got better until the past 10 years. Now most games suck and I don't game nearly as much as I used to but I still love gaming.  It was just more fun when I was a kid.

    Rather the age of a late teenager or early twen than beeing a kid....but at the end as kid or in the mentioned age..the feel of time  and beeing alive seems almost endless and really slow. But loosing the inner kid is a loss for sure, the older you get the higher the risk due to the pressure of our society and the changed living conditions.

    Iam for sure not missing computer games as a kid, teen or early twen even we played games somtimes... but, we did spent our time rather with friends or more outside.

    Yes i miss my childhood when it comes to computers, because there was none.

    People had so mutch more standing and a better moral and honesty then nowadays, were we talk about crowdmilking for example.

     

    Ill never forget the first virtual chatroom with real characters that could walk !

    That was on Amiga ofcause, intel PCs have not been that intelligent before ^^

     

    So my first MMORPG was the BBS modem dialup stuff, later via telnet.

    The linux kernel 0.96 compiled 3 days on my Amiga, the installation of that RedHat was another 3 days.

    Then i had a RedHat running Amiga what was incredible slow, lol.

    Cool times, cool games :)
