Just turned 40. Got a 360 and a massive haul of games for my birthday.

Can anyone else over 40 give me some pearls of wisdom?

Funnily enough, I don't feel too down about it! :-)

I hit that age in March, other than the fact I spent my birthday in Vegas so was gambling, firing automatic weapons, eating well and getting rather drunk it hasn't really made any difference to me at all.

Except now I can't say I'm late thirties any more. :-(

First thing I would do is sell all my game consoles...

Oh.

All I'll say is complete those games quickly, you may not have much time left! :D

It's all arbitrary anyway. 40 is just a number of years we decided to attach significance to. You're merely a day older than yesterday :)

My daughter was born 5 days before my 40th birthday which was great because it completely upstaged the whole turning 40 thing, and was probably the best birthday pressie I've ever had.

Age is what you are up here (taps head). If you make it to 42, still have as much passion for games as you did when you were 6 years old, still skateboard and mess about with lego and still don't know what you want to be when you grow up, you're probably doing OK.
