Default Mortal Kombat is 25 years old and you are going to die someday.

These may or may not be related.

More time has passed from Final Fantasy's release till now than will pass between now and Final Fantasy's 50th anniversary.

The reaper waits for no one.

If a game has a 50th anniversary and no gamers exist to celebrate it, is the game still 50?

I almost had to write that one out on graph paper to figure it out. Now I'm imagining a math textbook where all the problems are framed as reminders of your own mortality.

The thing about this joke is that it won't work forever. When I see that first post from you that says "oh my god I'm old" I will print it out, frame it, and hang it on my wall

Meh. When I was a kid, stuff like the Moon Landing was literally ancient history. Once the balance tipped over and I realized my birth was closer to it than to my current age, I stopped keeping track of social milestones like that.

It's when I realize, say, I've been a fan of X or Y for over half my life that I go, whoa, that's a long time.

Is there anything from 1992 that *doesn't* feel like it's 25 years old?

That sounds like something from a horror movie. (At least for some people. I was distracted at work today thinking about a 3-dimensional fractal and what the formulas would be for its volume and surface area.)

Don't fear the reaper. Just throw holy water at him when he first appears and you can stun-lock him. (If you have the triple shot.)

Mortal Kombat is older now than Pong was when Mortal Kombat was released.

Mortal Kombat's release is closer to the moon landing than the present day.

Look if you keep this up I'm going to have to save the "Donovan drinks from the wrong grail" GIF permanently on my PC instead of having to look it up every time

Nope, I still lose the impact because I first have to pause, reread the statement and try to figure it out like a math problem in my head.

I guess I feel old because I feel stupid.

They already started this joke in the tags but I will
Mortal Kombat Announcer voice: Finish It!
MKVA: Reminder of Your Mortality!

And some other things that will make you feel old:
