Very in joke but I think it is the best and we should go with it.
Although I suspect that more people have taken part in this thread than the actual contest!

Cookie3: "We'd also sit around in town killing aimless merchants so we could buy that Ring of Speed -1 {cursed} for 500,000 gold."
markh: Hey - I've *done* that Smile
markh: Of course, we didn't use gold back then...
Morgoth: You paid with broken sticks?
markh: If you wanted something, you killed someone for it. None of yer fancy 'shops'. You kids have it easy.
Morgoth *grin*
* markh cuffs Morgoth round ear
markh: Kids, eh?
* Morgoth grins
Cookie3: "We had to fight mean looking mercs for their magic items. Of course, they'd only drop Slime Molds, but we were lucky if we had food."
markh: Food? *Food*?!?
markh: We'd have *loved* hearing about food.
markh: I didn't even know food existed until I was 20.
markh: I had to eat dirt.
markh: And considered myself lucky.
* markh shakes head
Cookie3: "Dirt? We were lucky if we could find dirt. We all had permanently cursed Rings of Levitation. We couldn't even touch the ground if we wanted to."
Cookie3: ... ah, but kids today, they just don't understand.
markh: *lol*
Cookie3: "Of course, the Rings of Levitation were magical, and magic would fail 95% of the time, no matter how skilled you were."
Cookie3: "If a Ring failed, you were tossed into space, never to be seen again."
markh: Magic? *Magic?*
* markh fears he's turning into something from a Monty Python sketch...
Cookie3: "Not only that, but if you wanted to play Angband, you had to code it yourself. Since we didn't have Hard Drives, you could't save even if you wanted to. "pre-compiled" didn't exist back then!"
markh: Ha! Ha! I bet you had one of those fancy 'keyboards', didn't you?
markh: Pah. I had to enter the whole game via switches first!
Morgoth: and you had to retype the source every time you wanted to play
* markh nods to Morgoth. I see you're a veteran.
Morgoth: And compiling a compiler without a compiler - that was fun!
markh: And I couldn't afford paper so I had to memorise all the switch positions...
Cookie3: "Keyboard? Nay, you jest! We had to use ROCKS!"
Morgoth: You had Rocks?
markh: Rocks, eh? Call me Lord Cookie
* markh looks disgusted

This is from Angband, too funny not to quote

I still prefer "Insert tagline to continue," but this is better.

Little late chiming in (and apologies if this has already been suggested) but "When Gameplay Mattered" sounds bitter and defeated.

For an alternative how about: "When Gameplay Was King"

Much more positive connotation, much more nostalgic/majestic.

[Ninja edit: Just saw Andrew Sage's "When Cassette Was King", so credit to him Smile]

If you want nostalgic, go with "Back in my day..."

"Yes, well, that's the sort of blinkered, Philistine pig-ignorance I've come to expect from you non-creative garbage."
