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.

I think my grandad has one of those somewhere, it still had a box and everything

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
