We investigate the aging behavior of lattice-gas models with constrained dynamics in which particle exchange with a reservoir is allowed. Such models provide a particularly simple interpretation of aging phenomena as a slow approach to criticality. They appear as the simplest three-dimensional models exhibiting a glassy behavior similar to that of mean-field (low temperature mode-coupling) models.
