    We've all seen it posted, the term 'Old School'.

    For me it meant a time that was enjoyable, with fun interactions, even if just meant out exploring with no, or little, monster interaction.
    Rather than mere lip service to the title, it showed the true meaning and spirit of Legendary.
    There was relaxed friendly conversations.
    Always a fun wild time laughing, dieing, and at times even singing.
    Good friends, Good spirits and Good <What?> What does it mean to you? Please share

    Basically to me it seems to mean when things were done differently for whatever reason. "Old School" games have much different gameplay than newer games (notably being much harder and having a distinct LACK of a tutorial... instead you had a fairly informative manual), old school car engines are different than current ones (still internal combustion, but with a LOT less computer tech going on), methods and mindsets also change over time, food recipes change and we remember how different some food products tasted "back in the day" and so on.

    It's just basically a way of saying "how it used to be" and that calling a person "old school" is generally someone who does things by older ways... hand tools vs power tools, sculpting metal on a hand worked lathe vs a computer controlled machine, and so on.
