Star Fox was simply the best. FLYING AND SHOOTING AND NOW I'M IN A TANK AND JESUS CHRIST A BIG SPACE HEAD!

That was the last video game my father ever beat me at. The cheater read the instructions.

-insert do a barrel roll here-

Also, it was my first game in 3D! I still remember battling Star Wolf in Venom. Bad. ''Ass'.

@Malk: You know what I meant. Hating good stuff because it originates silly shit is wrong. Or at least I believe so.

It's not exactly naive. And it can happen. But it's tough. And definetly worthwhile.

Well I'm of the opinion that Scream wasn't that good to begin with, but this discussion is getting us nowhere so...

Batman: The Animated Series! How has no one mentioned Batman: The Animated series?

Also, Rushmore, Office Space, Clerks, Reservoir Dogs...

Also again, MTV animation. Beavis And Butthead, Daria, Liquid Television, Clone High(never got to see but I heard good things about it) and a slew of other good stuff.

Pretty much all the Dini/Timm collaborations were awesome.

Oh, speaking of Garfield, I am of the belief that Garfield And Friends was the best thing to ever happen to him.

Mar 15th 2011 at 3:49:07 PM

Justice League was awesome because it had my favorite character from DC comics. The Question.

The Question is now much like Deadpool for me since I actually read Denny O'Neil's run on the guy before he showed up on JLU. As much as a fucking hipster as it makes feel to say 'I liked the Question before he was popular' it's just damn true.

[up][up][up][up]Yeah watching that today I'm surprised by how actually funny it is.

I did love Garfield as a comic actually, so I'm reluctant to bash it now. I mean yeah most of it was the same gag over and over, but I have too many happy memories reading the book collections over and over.

Also, please tell me I'm not the only one who remembers the awesomeness that was Sifl And Olly.

I remember a lot of really more violent cartoons, and seeing End of Evangelion when I was eight, in 1999.

Sign on for this After The End Fantasy RP.

The nineties had The Simpsons. Thus, it was the best decade ever.

Mar 15th 2011 at 4:11:35 PM

To avoid nitpickers, it had the Golden Age of The Simpsons.

Ah, the 90s, when gangsta rap was still sort of relevant.

You can't even write racist abuse in excrement on somebody's car without the politically correct brigade jumping down your throat!

The 90's in media for me was defined by YTV (and early 2000's as well). Most of the good anime and cartoons were on the channel (well, looking back, a bunch of them were more "camp value" good). Power Rangers, Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, Pokemon, Digimon, Adventures Of Sonic The Hedgehog, Rugrats, Genndy Tartakovsy's stuff, and more (I only listed 90's stuff, after all). Teletoon had some good stuff too, but I didn't get that other channel in the 90's.

Not to mention The Zone's PJ segments, with their crazy antics and Story Arcs. It was my first experience with Put on a Bus / Replacement Scrappy too, though fortunately I got over it.
