The only game I played more back in the early 1980s was Q-Bert, after I had scored as high as I felt I could in both Pac-Man (235k) and the much tougher Ms. Pac-Man (135k).
Retired in late 2008 at age 45. Cashed in company stock, bought a lot of shares in a big bond fund and am living nicely off its dividends. IRA, SS, and a pension await me at age 60 and later. No kids, no debts.
