Although my geek/gamer life hasn't followed the same pattern, I can completely relate to that. I grew up with a computer geek Dad who was the IT and Network Admin guy before it became cool; I loved spending days with him fiddling with the computer and I used to be incredibly amused by the old detailed defrag program with all the colourful blinking blocks.

I remember him getting me an old Apple that had the basics of...BASIC. Haha. It was amusing. I wish I could have learned that in school too, instead of just keyboarding.

Awesome, awesome article. Go you! Anyone else notice that it's so much easier to find fellow geeks and gamers AFTER you get out of high school? I had one gamer friend in high school; now I work with a bunch of them and we all trade games or have Wii and BYOB nights. Much fun.

ah, it takes me back. ANd makes me count the years since I first picked up that orange d6, oddly with Arabic numerals instead of the dots on the dice we used in Monopoly. twenty-six. And twenty-seven since I first held the joystick of an Atari 2600 and played Yar's Revenge (I was the reigning house champion, though my brother could school me in Demon Attack).

Heh...it's fun to look back, and to look forward to many more years gaming up a storm.  I think as folks get older we either embrace the geek or hide it.  I'm much happier doing the former.
