This is a question Midlife Crisis

I've hit my forties, and my midlife crisis has manifested itself in old band T-shirts and a desire to go on camper van holidays. How has it hit you, or - if you are still a youngling - your elders?

I'm buying
all the things I wanted when I was a kid.

A C-64, proper real 1702 monitor, 1541 disk drive like rich people had, and ALL THE FUCKING GAMES :D

Annoyingly, the games are 3 - 4 x the price they used to be!

Only got a few more carts to collect, and I'll have the lot. Then start on the speccys!

This is extravagance verging on the extreme
I can't justify buying a BBC Micro because I have a free emulator program that works every bit as well (indeed better) than the real thing, but also because any genuine decent working Beeb goes for over £100 on eBay and anything that has been running well for 25 years must be about ready to break.

You'll regret it.
Retro-gaming is a sea of disappointment.

so far
It is about a 35 / 50 / 10 / 5 % ratio of pretty fun games / total drok / failed to load / 5 failed to load in a fun way where the graphics are a bit broke on the floppys.

Been having hours of fun with these.

Suppose I should have gotten a motorbike and a younger wife, would have been well cheaper :D

I've got boxes full of old Speccy games I'd be glad to just get rid of
You can play Rebelstar and Chaos online these days, that's all I was really keeping it for
