* An {{iTunes}} app was released of the Fairlight CMI Series II, (a $100,000 machine invented in 1979 in Australia which is considered both one of the first major digital workstations and the first commercially available digital sampler.) The app was designed by one of the Fairlight's inventors. Fairlights were used in TheEighties by many top artists with the cash to buy one[[labelnote:i.e.]]producer Trevor Horn (with ArtOfNoise, ABC and Music/{{Yes}}), Music/{{Devo}}, PaulMcCartney, {{Erasure}}, Music/{{U2}}, Music/{{Queen}}, Music/StevieWonder, Music/FleetwoodMac, Music/ElvisCostello, Thomas Dolby, Howard Jones, Hall And Oates, Music/TheCars, Music/DefLeppard, Music/MichaelJackson, Music/PetShopBoys, Music/PeterGabriel, Music/HerbieHancock, Music/KateBush...[[/labelnote]]. In today's world, where $1,000 can get you a decent workstation that can wipe the floor with the Fairlight, the app is getting mixed reviews, partly on being seen as "generic" and "more of a toy."

* FiveSecondFilms' schtick comes off as this, now that anyone can make regular ''six''-second videos on Vine.

* Wiki/SCPFoundation: Due to how the writing style and the general atmosphere of the setting evolved, many of the oldest SCP entries, once acclaimed as some of the best, seem out-of-date now and would be considered subpar if they were written today. For example, [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-173 SCP-173]] (the very first SCP item) or [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-017 SCP-017]] are sometimes criticized because they're little more than a short description of a monster and the creepy things it can do, while today's SCP articles tend to be more like complete stories in themselves.

** ''WebAnimation/EvangelionReDeath'', being the UrExample of abridged series, was hit particularly hard by this trope. When it was first released in early 2000, it was quite the phenomenon, being regularly played at anime conventions and spawning numerous [[MemeticMutation memes]]. Now, its writing and voice acting are considered to be quite dry compared to the works of Creator/TeamFourStar (the only group whose works still maintain the level of popularity that ''[=ReDeath=]'' had), and many modern viewers find it hard to believe how big of a phenomenon this 30-minute short film was over a decade ago.

** Even then, the GagDub and AffectionateParody of many popular series [[OlderThanTheyThink was already a VERY old trope by the time LittleKuriboh started recording his voice over everything]]. With the advent (and subsequent popularization) of TheAbridgedSeries, old UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash movies like "Dragon Ball Z in a Nutshell" and "A Mile a Minute Star Wars" (Both considered quite popular and humorous, which use many of the tropes that TheAbridgedSeries now use) now seem like imitators... of ''poorly done'' abridged series.

* YouTubePoop even. Granted, some [[YouTubePoop YTPs]] are still quite as funny today as they were back in mid 2007 when the fad was new (like where Link decides to toast spaghetti for dinner and HilarityEnsues), but some jokes have been used so much people may think "Oh, look at the use of the word 'Come', and Robotnik is saying something that sounds like Penis" when they view a few [[YouTubePoop YTPs]] that came up with it.
** Some other early [[YouTubePoop YTPs]] that were simply screwing around with Windows Movie Maker or other such effects also come off as boring today because we've ''only'' heard everything in G major by this point.

** Many "[[WretchedHive Deep Web]]" horror stories are starting to develop this - a notable cliche is that every single person on the Deep Web will hack your camera and take a picture of you. Why this still happens despite the popularity of these stories on YouTube, people don't just [[FridgeLogic cover their webcams with a band-aid]]..
** Subverted with ''readings'' of {{Creepypasta}}s - many readings that were made in the early [[TheNewTens 10s]] are still watched today.

* AdobeFlash movies. Browse any website full of them and then point out how many cartoons that were "hot stuff" back when they were made now seem rather generic, loosely drawn, or poorly animated. Especially sites like {{Newgrounds}}.

* The [[WebVideo/TGWTGYearOneBrawl That Guy With The Glasses One-Year Anniversary Brawl]]. It's now fully expected that several of the site's members will get together to make a movie celebrating an anniversary, but at the time it was a complete secret what was going to happen, and just the sight of so many contributors in one room was absolutely mindblowing. And of course, now it looks downright primitive with the lack of any plot besides everyone fighting, and lasting only 20 minutes rather than the feature length extravaganzas of {{WebVideo/Kickassia}}, WebVideo/SuburbanKnights, and WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee.
