The 90s Nostalgia Thread:

I find my macbook pro to feel more futuristic than any other computer I've owned, but it's basically just a preference for those sleek, self driving audis in I, Robot over the flashy, flying delorian from Back to the Future.

I miss the 2D Platform Game craze. I have fond memories of Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, and Prehistorik Man.

Oddly enough, one of the moments I remember the most about the latter is its use of You Have Researched Drowning. I find it funny.
They Called Me Mad!! I decided to show them all; but when I looked on my works, oh mighty, I despaired: for it made me realize they were right.

Has anyone here played Shadow Of The Beast when they were younger? I first came across the game a couple years back and the whole thing just screams atmosphere, like a metroid game that traded in it's sci-fi elements for fantasy ones. Definetly the sort of thing tht leaves an impression on you.

Okay, I was just looking through all my old vhs tapes this morning. Amoungst lots of Turtles and Power Rangers episodes I found something called "The Admiral and the Princess." Now for the longest time I've had this memory of this animated show where a princess gets turned into some sort of bird by an evil wizard with a crystal. At the end the cyrstal gets thrown into the air and the wizard makes a dive for it. He's to late and the crystal shatters on the floor and he decays into a skelton mid-dive. Then I think the hero of the story asks to be turned into a buird to be with his love. For years I had no idea what this was from but I think I may have just found it. Does anyone else remember this movie? Cause there's nothing about it online.

Going down a trip down memory lane and rewatching intros of cartoons such as Rocko's Modern Life, Angry Beavers and Powerpuff Girls. Then I stumbled on the intro for Powerpuff Girls Z by total accident and I was like 0_o.

I'm aching for all the cartoons I used to watch, even if most of them were like Gross Out Show

Ooh la la!
The TGIF Friday night comedy shows on ABC- Family Matters, the one with Brendan Frasier that I can't remember the title of, Hanging with Mr. Cooper, Boy Meets World.

The earliest seasons of Law and Order and ER, Seinfeld, Homicide Life on the Street, and trashy daytime stuff like Sally Jessi Raphael and Ricki Lake.

It's bad... for some reason, I've been going through Stone Roses songs again... dunno why that might be... tongue

You know, I had pretty decent music choice back then: dusting off the CDs wasn't as embarrassing as I'd feared.

The Stone Roses — now there was a band who understood and used the idea of a dynamic range. Or enjoyed making people turn up their stereos then hitting them over the heads with the loud parts, anyway.

It's a crying shame that they got a major case of Fucked By The Label which resulted in releasing no more albums for years and years and years and wasting the prime years of their talent. They should have put out 3-4 records in that time, and we never got them.
A brighter future for a darker age.

@Cute: You do know Corgan's still pumping out Pumpkins albums, yes?

As to 90s nostalgia...

Alice in Chains with Layne Staley; Soundgarden at their height; Nine Inch Nails at their (well, really, his) most potent; Reboot; Beast Wars; plaid didn't get you called a hipster; Bruce Dickinson's solo career with Adrian Smith on guitar; the beginnings of the rebirth of prog-rock, largely via Porcupine Tree; Saturday Morning Cartoons (what the hell is this Sunday morning crap kids get now?)...

I could go a while...

I remember when I used to stare at this screensaver for hours on end. Must've been the (at the time) new feeling of viewing 3D graphics.

[up] I remember messing with the customization features of that and thinking it was THE COOLEST THING EVAR. Especially the psychedelic skins.

That makes me think of the original Sims game. Okay, yeah, that was 2000, but it still counts. I mean someone born in say 2002 wouldn't remember it. It had the best soundtrack of all the games, and it was ridiculously easy to kill Sims.

Very first Doom game I ever played was DOOM II. It was one of the games that Uncle Nick had, and I used to play the hell out of it whenever I was at my aunt's place. I still have the WAD for that game, as well as Ultimate Doom. I also remember playing — and beating — Duke Nukem II, the first major Duke Nukem game that had the guy fighting aliens.

...Oh wow the maze. I had forgotten about that.

Oh, the video games of my youth. I don't I ever played Dark Forces without cheats.

Sims music? The stuff on the radio was good. These four in particular. I used to have .wav files of them and push the fast foward button to listen to them at double spped. They sounded wicked.

Oh my god the nostalgia

Of course the best part was that all the kids who watched it missed the point completely and thought house hippos were real.

I could swear that I also saw a "Making of 'House Hippos'" video sometime - it showed the editing tricks that they used. I've never been able to find it again, which disappoints me vaguely.
