I have 2 kids, a wife, mortgage, college loans and I'm almost 40. I still get drunk at home though so maybe not much has changed.

I know them feels, buddy. Having a mortgage is pretty kick ass in the long run...when we moved and sold our house for a decent chunk more than we paid a decade before, that sudden influx of cash came in pretty damn handy for setting up our new home.

What I hate is how much my gaming + tv + movie watching time has diminished. It's impossible to keep up with any of the hobbies anymore so I quit even trying. I'm balls deep in the PS2 library and I'll be retired before I ever make a dent in the PS3 library. Doubt I'll even crack the plastic on a majority of my PS4 stuff until my kids are through college.

Hell, my current favorite hobby is this new thing called "going for a walk on the trail". Just enjoying nature and shit. It's pretty cost effective, being free and shit.

I play some games but I mostly just stick to anything that doesn't require any longterm commitment. I did pick up MGS5 but I kinda lost interest in it. I never really got into the base/army building games like Peacewalker and now MGS5. Zero interest in playing soldier Pokemon. Shadow of Mordor was fun and quick. I liked Titanfall a bunch. My guilty pleasures have been ZvP: Garden Warefare and Splatoon (super fast games, simple reward systems, none of this 50 levels of customization and perks bullshit).

Life-wise, I've taken up learning Japanese and I love hanging with my parents on Sunday to drink a couple bottles of wine and take it easy. I can't stand at least 98% of TV dramas. There's a few rare exceptions but I'm largely not interested. I cut the cord at least 2 years ago. Movies are still occasionally fun but I've gotten to this weird point where I see a movie once and then I have no interest in ever seeing it again. Even movies I absolutely adored. It's like the thrill can't be recaptured so I don't bother. Deadpool was good. StarWars was ok but it was literally just a rehash of the first movie. For people that have already seen prior entries, I'm not sure why this warranted the hysteria it got. Meh, maybe I've just seen the same old shit too many times to get my feathers ruffled.

I'm big on taking the girls outdoors and doing fun stuff when we can. I genetically engineered the best kids you could possibly have and imprinted my own hobbies and likes onto them. "Dad, can we watch you play Punch Out tonight?!" Of course, children. Of course you can.

I just saw this recent video go up on the SNES drunk youtube channel for Ninja Five-0 (awesome channel btw for cheesy background nostalgia fun). I remember you raving about back in the day. I picked up a copy and played it and had a good time. I come to find out that it goes for shit tons of money on ebay. I just looked in my old game stash and I can't find it :-/ Shit.

Introduce your kids to the world of Geocaching and they'll be the ones begging you to get out of the house. I was bit by the geocaching bug a couple of years ago and it's still going strong.

As much as I love my free time and current responsibilities that don't involve children (I have a lot of disposable income!), I'd like to have kids, but nature isn't currently letting that happen. I'd like nothing more than to have children that I can mold to my liking (help me play video games, make them play video games and I watch, and play guitar with me), so take advantage of this time to teach your children what is best for them (and you!).

I watched your SNES Drunk link and then saw the above video with the Ren & Stimpy image, so I clicked it, I listened to the audio and even before Ren started speaking I was able to identify that audio as something from a mad trippy moment in Ren & Stimpy; that Sven Höek episode was great.

I showed an episode of Ren & Stimpy to my neice when she was around 6 or 7 years-old and she asked me what was wrong with them. Those kids need Ren & Stimpy!

I REALLY enjoyed Shovel Knight, cute, good, nostalgia filled and perfectly balanced game.

I can't even begin to think about tackling something like Witcher 3. Too big, too involved.

I did enjoyed Jessica Jones and Deadpool, but i am watching a shitload of documentaries and ted talks on netflix, because... i don't why really.

But most of the stuff people hype, i'm just meh, not so good.

It's a lot of fun finding some classics for kids to play. Last Christmas I brought an emu box with Bomberman to the family dinner, and a few kids jaded with some FPS on PS3/4 went from "wtf is this shit" to get really into it. 4-player Gauntlet was also big, its pretty simple to pickup and even younger players can participate for a bit. And save states means nobody complains too much when its time to go do something with the adults.

At home Mario Bros. is a huge hit. They even figured out some tricks I never thought about (or forgot). Dragon Warrior was less appealing though, they're already too into Minecraft.
