    Play Legend of Zelda on an NES.

      Oh! I still got a working copy (along with the working NES), I should go and finish it in one go in the very near future, in the name of all the nostalgic people out there!

      For me, it'd be Ocarina of Time on the N64! I've never actually played the original.

    Run and have fun doing it. I used to just run around the yard, run around the neighborhood, run in the woods. I loved every second of it. Now if I try to run I hate every second of it. I watch my son running around and he has the same glee in movement that I used to have. Makes me move around a bit more, but man do I miss that feeling of excitement at just moving.

      unrelated, but I love your ouroboros in your profile picture

    Tree climbing. A part of me is always judging trees based on their climbability and planning branch routes to the top of trees that look fit for ascension. The other part of me thinks I'd look insane climbing trees as an adult.

    Go into one of those ball rooms where there are thousands of colorful balls. McDonalds has them.

    Playing sports in general. I used to be very good at football and basketball, and was a very fast runner. I don't do any of those anymore, but sometimes I miss them.

      You should check out meetup groups in your area. I was of the same feeling of late and found a few good pick up games near me. Let's me burn off some of that extra competitiveness, and get some good exercise that's not running on a treadmill.

    Playgrounds.

    Everything used to be so giant. Climbing up a slide was such an accomplishment.

    Monkey bars felt like they were 100' in the air

    The inedible challenge it was to get anything from the top shelf.

      Haha. The inedible challenge has turned into the hide and seek challenge. If the food isn't hidden well enough, its gonna get eaten.

    Honestly, I just miss not knowing what the future holds. As an adult I know that for the next 50 years my life will consist of going to work at 8 at getting home at 5:30, and doing the same ol' stuff on my days off (watching tv, maybe watching tv in a different room with friends, etc.). When I was a kid and I went to bed, the possibilities were endless, and that was just for what I was doing tomorrow, much less what I could do for years in the future. I miss that.

    Have a sleepover where me and some buds watch DBZ all night long and have mock battles shooting ki blasts.

    Be uncontactable and get up to mischief. The days when I go out out with my mates and wander about in the local countryside as long as we were back in time for tea. That feeling that you're no where anyone can get in touch with you, the freedom....mobile phones have a lot to answer for.

    Front flip on a trampoline. Would be in hospital if I tried it now!

    Walk hand in hand with my parents and jump ahead only to have them swing me back. Unless they grow to be 12 foot tall, that will never happen again :(

    Adult-size playplaces when

    I also want to go back and do Disneyland

      What do you mean by adult sized play spaces? Like the Gym?

    Playing Stealing Bases. I was still in high school when I last played this game. I'm 22 now and still wish I'll be given a chance to play it again.

    Jump in a ball pool!

    To be honest I haven't really spent much time outside since I was a kid. Instead of going to the park or even my back yard, I am content just sitting in my room where I can have an internet connect. It's the same when I am with friends and we always make sure to be in a place with wifi (god forbid we not be able to go on instagram). If I am not in a building it is almost always because I am moving from one place to another.

    Either be involved in some kind of music or do more crazy outdoor exploring for sure
