    What is the Oregon Trail Generation, you ask? It's another word for xenniels- that cohort that captures the youngest Gen X'ers and the oldest Millennials.

    If you spent your teen years listening to this

    to log onto AIM so you can A/S/L some dude posing as a hot chick, then you belong to this generation.

    1 & 8 do not apply.

    I always thought Oregon Trail & Where in the World is Carmen San Diego were corny as hell.

    I grew up playing King's Quest, Leisures Suit Larry, Goblins (basically the best Sierra games) The Incredible Machine etc. when it came to PC games.

    That's me, except NKOTB.

    The dial up sound was fucking magic. Except late at night when I tried to sneak online, the loud ass modem in our Gateway 2000 always woke my parents up and they'd send me back to my room. All I wanted to do was ask random "girls" in yahoo chat rooms A/S/L? I'll tell ya, that 5 seconds waiting for an answer to that simple question was something else back in the day.

    Then we had MSN messenger, and holy shit......that thing was a game changer to a 15 year old boy back in 2000.

    I actually did play Oregon Trail (and Oregon Trail 2 and SimCity 2000) in my elementary school's library and a few of those things like AOL, Dial-up, and Discmans managed to stick around long enough to be part of my early childhood. A '93 kid tho so I don't really make the cut.
