So this has turned from age to sperm count? logic sense it makes!

I'll add sperm-count to user stats. Expect them above your avatar in the near future.

Do you know what I hate in being old? that moment when you admire some celebs and figure out they're younger than you :/

Judging from this thread, I'd say it's worse realising that the people whose coding you admire around here are younger than you!  Wink

I'm 34 - age or sperm count, you decide!

And as for drinking, well it's got to be Hobgoblin seen as I live on the same street as the brewery!  Grin

Glad to know there are older folks here, gives me confidence I'll be doing this for a long time and won't ever get bored =P (currently I can't imagine a world where game development would be boring).

Cripes, I feel old!  Still, I can tell you that wisdom doesn't come with age.  90xx is the JMP instruction for the SC/MP, C4xx was LDI (Load Immediate).  Go figure.

Turned 40 this year, uurgghh.. Not the oldest here tho it seems  Wink + still feel young  Cheesy

I started writing games around 25 years ago on the Acorn Electron (using BASIC), in the days of saving your code to audio cassette, taking care to set the volume level of the tape recorder to around 70% (otherwise, it wouldnt save properly, losing all your hard hours work).  What fun.   You all have it so easy these days.  Have made around 20+ games since then and so far, total earnings due to game development still stands at a big fat: $0.0   Sad    I'll graciously give up one day.

Still get the same buzz writing code as I did all those years ago.

14.

Programming web since 11. (Gave up because HTML/PHP is useless for games. Did not know about Javascript)
Programming Java since late last year (modding Minecraft)
Programming my own games since the start of this year.
Programming a networked game (without Kryonet) since two months before I turned 14. (but I gave up)
Programming with LWJGL since 1 month before I turned 14.
Programming a voxel engine since two weeks before I turned 14.

You must be my lost twin lol Wink I'm 14, too, started HTML/PHP at ~12, gave that up, started Java last year by modding Minecraft, started programming my own games since this year, did some stuff with network programming, started lwjgl 1 month before I turned 14 and have started a voxel engine since I'm about 14, too.

The sense of how fast time passes is directly related to how much you remember of that period.

How much you remember, is directly related to how interesting something is, and whether it is a genuinely new experience.

It is not directly related to age, but when you get older, you tend to get into these patterns and much less of what you experience is new or very interesting.

well "objectively interesting" since you do remember bad things too
I remember staring at the wall thinking "when I'm old and people ask what I did when I was young, I will have to say: NOTHING" (I was mad because I wasn't allowed playing PSone Cheesy)
Luckily some of my oldest memories are video game related: toy firetruck, christmas tree, playing ATARI 2600(Stampede & Laser Blast), Lightning strikes my house and it was like a sound grenade, Street Fighter 2 on Amiga, vomiting on an airplane
everything somewhere between age 3 and 6

Ah, the good memories of the Acorn Electron!  Think I've still got one in the loft somewhere, though it died long ago.  Cry

Also remember coding a program that played tunes on the Spectrum.  Took more tape to save the program than to record the tune it played!  Grin

Same here,  mine is stored in my parents loft in the UK, and still works strangely enough.
Programming was great, although was always fustrated as the BBC B was so much better
(mode 1 with 4 colours was fast, and Repton was full screen with excellent sound + other games better).

Suprisingly, I still remember most of the BASIC commands so definitely related to how interesting it was..

Ahhh!! Wash your mouth out with soap!  Funny,  I never programmed in BASIC.  I copied BASIC programs for books/mags but that was it...and it was more than enough.  P.S. Why doesn't Pascal get much nostalgic love?

BASIC is just great. I don't understand why it's fallen out of fashion. It just gets so much done for so little faff and pomp, and it's a piece of piss to teach.

BASICA was my first programming language, but Turbo Pascal (with the book with the chalkboard on the cover) was my first real experience programming. I remember trying (and largely failing) at trying to write a natural language parser.

Ever heard of freebasic? It allows you to use any DLL you can write a header for. That's actually how I got into sdl and opengl. (Just a bit of tinkering)

I always thought I was stupid and could never possibly become a real programmer because I could never understand what those long strings of DATA statements in those BASIC programs I typed in from Compute! magazine actually did.  I know there were better dialects to come along later, but I still have no loving nostalgia for BASIC whatsoever.

Good old utterly simple Commodore BASIC is what got me into programming properly for the first time. Along with a bit of BBC BASIC. I had dabbled a bit with Pascal beforehand but being only about 7 or so I didn't really grasp a lot of Pascal's concepts.

Later on I really enjoyed using GFA BASIC, STOS BASIC and AMOS. Then BASIC got unfashionable and kinda vanished, roughly around the same time I got a job in the "industry" (doing Powerbuilder, no less, which isn't that far removed from BASIC anyway).
