this term confuses a lot of people. the term “80s baby” doesn’t mean a person born in the 1980s. it means a person that was a teenager in the 1980s and experienced the youth culture of the 1980s.
You are an "80s baby" if:

If you played Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Pole Position, Centipede, or Super Mario Bros video games

Played outside til the street lights came on

Wore neon colors, catheads, leg warmers, jean jackets, jumpsuits, acid washed jeans, oversized shirts

Went to the movies to see E.T., Breakin', Real Genius, The Muppets, Karate Kid, Ghostbusters, Coming To America, Krush Groove, Mary Poppins, or Beat Street

Woke up earlier on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons, and Zoom/Mr. Wizard's World so you could do the same experiments the kids did on show

If you knew the lyrics to Self Destruction and Fight the Power.

Played duck duck goose, simon says, double dutch, kickball, hopscotch, dodgeball.. etc

Remember seeing Michael Jackson's perform "Billie Jean" on the Music Awards Show
