My experience was much more fun, I had went to our local Wal-mart at 8:00 pm Nov 12, which made me first in line (Not really a problem as I may have worked there and could sneak into the break room for occasional soda). Well, eventually, this rather old fellow was just wondering around the electronics department. After about 30-45 minutes I point this out to one of the electronics associates, and I overhear that the guy is just waiting for the launch too. He was 72, SEVENTY-TWO, I was flabbergasted, well, we sat on nearby bench and just chatted for hours, (He was alliance, but I'll forgive him for that) He was just as enthusiastic as I was for this, he wasn't just buying for his son/grandson, though his son was the one who got him into it.He even came from the rather large city 30 miles away because he knew THOSE Wal-marts would be packed. Just a very fun experience to chat with an old-timer IRL about a game we both enjoy.
had a friend in an old guild, i dunno how old he was but he was a war vet and i remember at one time he had to have his leg removed, he was joking about it in vent how he asked the doctor if he could have it in a jar lol
