Three of them are still going, only one of those started on the PS and they all suck. MGS is basically a movie, FF has had four good games at best, and the PS RE have been ported to better systems, like the Saturn and, later, the Dreamcast.

Before 2007 I made a shitload of bro tier internet friends who weren't pretentious sensitive assholes and had good taste in vidya, music, movies and had a great sense of humor. I used to meet all kinds of interesting people with lifelong friend qualities. They all just fucking disappeared sometime near late 2009 and every online community, forum and vidya community turned to complete utter shit and got flooded with what I can only call normies because these people who flooded the internet after the myspace containment website died and facebook exploded are fucking nutless sacks of self absorbed shit.

What the fuck happened? Did Obama single handedly fuck the entire world over?
>>
>>26288347
I remember a time where the only vanity was the amount of posts you had made on a forum and if you were a super/master user or whatever the sites equivalent was.

I miss forums and real discussion in general, 4chan was always a pile of shit.

But now its the only place we have left.
>>
>>26288347
yep obama made your internet buddies quit hanging out with you
good call anon you really nailed it
>>
>>26288347
Obama fucked all of America and most of the developing world, yes.
>>
>>26288347
For me its more like:
>Logs into MMO I used to play
>Talks to randoms still playing
"No new generation came in"
>The people still playing are the same strangers I used to play with, they just log on and AFK. They just can't get themselves to leave the game behind, but the majority of the community did.

H-how did we end up here!?

All forums are dead.

I just feel like everything got fucking ruined. All of the niche nerd internet communities got invaded by normies. I can't meet any genuinely cool people who are into animu and cosplay at conventions because it's overrun with teenage attention whores with daddy issues and their beta orbiters. Actually, it was more ruined by females than normies. I don't even hate women, but they ruin everything they touch; the beta males who worship them are even more at fault, tbqh. Every internet community I've involved myself in over the past few years has been toxic as fuck, all in all.

Also, I remember when mods on forums were a part of their respective communities and generally lenient, but now they're all power hungry faggots who will ban you for saying tranny or nigger.

>Actually, it was more ruined by females than normies.

Now you know why women in Muslim countries are required to cover up. Can't whore for attention if you're required to wear lots of shit.

I mean it's like a crowbar type of approach, but it's still effective.

To be fair, most of the popular Jewtubers back then were normie teenagers like Smosh and Nigahiga, but idk. Something was just different. People were generally less faggoty, even on the websites with normies. Maybe a lot of them were cyborgs, as opposed to full-on normans.

Anyone feel that the 00s were like an "updated" version of the late 90s until 2006-2007ish or so?

Take for example pic related. That movie came out in 2004, but it could've just as easily came out in 1998. Then look at something like Hannah Montana: The movie. It was released only 4 years later, but it feels like a totally different universe.

2007 was the turning point, as it's when the Bieber iPhone shit 2010s culture started:
>Big Bang Theory first airs
>Apple releases the first iPhone
>Johnny Ricitello becomes CEO of EA
>NSA launches PRISM program
>Kids stopped playing outside and became spoiled brain-dead shits
>9/11 babbies turn 6
>Remaining 90s shows on TV ended
>Normies began invading the Internet and casualizing it
>>
>>26291085
I completely agree. The early 2000s very much resembled the late 90s, in the same way that the early 60s very much resembled the 1950s. In both cases, there was massive social upheaval. You wouldn't even have recognized the world in 1969, and the same can be said about 2009.

I honestly feel like social media ruined everything; turned people into self-serving, mentally unstable narcissists.

I hate Facebook so god damn much.

I had an online qt3.14 gf on there. Fucked her two times IRL, and found out a Chad in real life was fucking her. Not only that, but it's full of stupid sluts who think they're the shit because they have chemicals in their hair and have skin cancer from tanning beds. They'll be all dried up by the time they're 35 or 40 and I'll laugh when they turn into meth dealers and can't get a job in the socialist and PC society they created. The moment they complain, I'll swiftly tell them to shut the fuck up and get over it, because in all honesty, I don't give a shit.

They ruined the internet with their cancer normie bullshit, and they'll ruin MY children (if i ever do have any) with their smartphones and bullshit like that.

I'm glad I grew up in the time I did, because at least now I'm self-aware and not in a giant collective circlejerk called Facebook.

Fuck the internet. Seriously. Even YouTube is going to hell.
>>
>>26291649
You are the normie, normie.
>>
Facebook ruined most of the net, quit posting fucking pictures of food you ate or places you visited cause nobody gives a shit.

No more Animaniacs, Ren and Stimpy.

I also miss Spoilsbury Toast Boy, Burnt Face Man and a variety of fat-pie flash animations. Not trying to be edgy, at the time they had a certain eerie charm that was unsettling.

A lot of games are now flat and devoid of charm. All flash and no substance. Largely because game companies make their budgets so large it's a financial risk and become afraid to try something new.

I sincerely hope the world somehow fixes this collision course, cause everything's going to hell.
>>
>>26286600

I was a kid back then, I was born in 96 but I can definitely relate to this.

Forums and communities were great, I made tons of friends playing online games and they we're really interesting people and I miss those times were the only achievement that mattered was the level of your character or your rank on the forum instead of how many tweets do you have and how many friends you have on facebook, I miss those times when there were no attention whores and people wasn't constantly taking pictures of themselves.

I miss my childhood.

Maybe we all stop using it then and go back to living it like the 1970s or some shit.
While Normie is living in his digital age of mindless bullshit we have our own underground again.

Halo 3 came out though and that was probably the best part of my life. 2010+ is when everything went down. Somehow the 08 recession doesn't seem over anecdotaly.
