Nostalgia thread! Let's see how hard we can make each other nostalgia
This image just makes me worried about the safety of that puppet.
>tfw pizza day
>always buy an extra pizza for $1.50
>ate like a king
>Try to download music and anime
>Ended up downloading porn instead and giving my computer aids
I miss Limewire
Sorry my bad. Just looked up and you guys had a totally different commercial. We had https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uN-MewkSjns
On a related note https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFEBaAxO7W0our Intro is also better than the other.
>ANON! Get off the internet! I need to use the phone!
>tfw you will never play thins on a LAN party with your friends again
>All those Weird Al songs that weren't really by Weird Al
Only Canadians will understand this.
>Cafeteria had snapple machine
>No money to buy any when i wanted some
>No money for ice cream
>Okay, anon, you have been good all week. You can rent one movie and one game for the weekend.
What game and movie was it /v/
Pokemon Puzzle League
Goddamn this channel was God Tier
I remember i downloaded something and it ended up being a porn where this guy busts through a window and then anal fucks this girl while he gives her a swirly in a toilet.
Craziest video ever.
>Fucking everyone gets nachos because of course
>Something was wrong with the cheese and half the school is out sick the next day
>I packed a lunch that day
I actually just found it again but they edited out him jumping through the window into her house. I swear its like leon busting through windows in RE4.
skip to 10:22
Free music and free TV shows/Movies/Videos. Do you know how groundbreaking that was at the time to get any song or video you wanted for free? This was the early internet days before Youtube existed. Sometimes you would end up downloading porn and viruses but it was worth the risk
I remember I used to come home from school as quick as possible just so I could watch Xplay and Attack of the show.
I barely made it, every time.
Animusic is the shit
our music teacher would play them sometimes, and my dad used to watch them at home or on tv
>2005, King Kong just came out of theatres
>want to be that kid who had movies while they were still in theatres
>tell my friends i'll get King Kong for them
>download Xxx.rip.King.Kong.2005.cam off of Limewire
>5 GB takes a month downloading
>open it up
>shot of fat black woman's horse pussy
>it's 3 hours of BBBW porn with an old bojangles black man fucking her
>shut off computer
>lie in bed and try to think up a lie to tell my friends
>mfw that's how I discovered porn
Hello /v/ it's me Face! You all have grown up so much! I've missed you all so very much! Let's catch up sometimes!
>There will never be a lineup this great again
This one got me. Bus would drop me off at like 3:50 and I would get in the house by like 3:57 and turn on X-Play.
Then one day the Cops epidemic started and Adam Sessler got replaced by a robot when the show got redone.
Sony was the first one who used memory cards?
>those memories are all coming back
>Dim the lights, cue the applause, you’ve been watching, Robot Wars!
>"You'll never know who you'll run into next"
Whoever invented these was literally worse than hitler.
>you'll never stay up late to watch the first episode of Gundam Wing and talk about it on the playground the next day
>cogeco starting out
>starting to get all kinds of channels(Space, Family, etc)
>YTV emerging into its own, PJ Katie's Farm, The Zone, etc
>those old 3D animation shorts they'd play between shows to fill space
>all these kids with their dollar store tamagotchi and I had this
no idea, I found mine at a rummage sale for a buck in the late 90's
the machine takes 4 D batteries and vibrates like crazy and makes sonic noises when you use the flippers and hit stuff.
the machine isn't very complex but it was a lot of fun as a kid.
Just google Dragonball Z Tournemant game or something similar.
It uses shockwave and it might be a bitch to load.
Power Rangers had a fucking metal soundtrack
Those are called "tazos", they were made for spics and other third world country shitholes and the fucking monkey played with them like they were toys, shit was sick
Whenever I see the Gen I Pokémon gameboy covers I nostalgia hard.
Also pic related.
Not necessarily the game itself, but Monday night wrestling and talk the next day with your buddies about all the shit that went down.
>the shapes made it taste better due to holding the cheese differently
>modern Kraft Dinner tastes like shit due to cutting costs on ingredients and wanting you to buy luxury 'velveta'
No, the Sega CD and Neo Geo AES were
HOLY SHIT NOSTALGIA'D HARD AS FUCK
I use to love this fucking game
>those fucking 'steel' stickers on all electronics
buckethead did it u shit
>A little kid
>Dad works at hardware store distribution center
>Would always buy a bunch of random crap in bulk because of some kind of sale to get rid of product.
>One day he comes home with a trash bag full of stuff.
>Says he has a surprise
>Dumps the bag out on the bed
>A literal mountain of brand new digimon pocket pets in the box.
>At least 30-40
>End up killing them all
>The fuck was a hardware store doing with bulk digimon virtual pets?
>The shapes made it taste better due to holding the cheese differently
HOLY SHIT THIS. The texture was also better. My mom never understood and kept telling me they all tasted the same
It varied from version to version, some were about finger flip tricks like a butchered version of marbles while others were a butchered form of Pokemon battles in that whoever had the element advantage and most tazos won.
I had one or two as a kid and they get old fast because the ball is super weighty, the triggers feel cheap and clunky, and the noises were super loud. They were only like $20-25 though.
Hey face! Remember that one time you got drunk on New Years and told me to "grow a pair"?
Regular Bop-It fags move the fuck outta the way king's coming through
Same, I got one thinking it was like a Digimon pet because my classic Digimon virtual pet had broken or something.
I was surprised it was basically a tiny rpg.
It turns out the reason they were unpopular is because being a toy about aliens stealing parts somehow triggered people over 9/11.
What a shit tier snack, step aside scrub
Oh god how I miss the dijon mustard in these badboys
Dude what the fuck. This actually hurt my childhood right here. Why did Face say that? That's so out of character
As someone who's always loves Link's Awakening, that guy always kind of freaked me out. Face Shrine vibes all over the place.
I can still hear his voice.
Did anyone else go crazy for Oreo O's? God damn that shit was good. I'm tempted to order some from Korea, or wherever it is that they still make them. Not sure it'll be the same though.
Holy fuck somebody else on /v/ played this game
I don't think there's a single junk food I miss more
>Got one from a friend
>Would not stop making noise no matter what
>Threw it into my closet and never looked back
>To this day I can hear weird electronic noises every so often
>mfw haunted by tamagotchi
Pogs were exclusively about knocking down towers of pogs.
In the end my friends stopped the "for keeps" rule, my collection was getting ridiculous
Ah ok so the rules are different.
pogs were a fad in north america, cardboard circles like Tazos but smaller. The game was created in hawaii where a passion fruit drink called POG was sold. People would collect the cardboard filters and made a game out of them.
It was kind of stupid, the rules were both players stacked their Pogs like chips in the center and each player used a larger metal coin pog to throw directly into the pile.
Any pogs that landed face up from the impact went to the player, in play for keeps rules you kept them.
This caused collection autism in kids and it was a huge fucking thing for a very brief period in 90's.
>Pour a big bowl of pic related
>Grab a pop tart too
>Sugar high the entire fucking day
I'm amazed I don't have diabetes
>The Jalapeno ones
Holy shit my nigga. Literally the best cereal ever. I remember when I was really sick and my mom went to all the stores looking for it but those cereal bastards had taken it away
>More youthful adventure vibes
It was fucking everywhere I swear, was I just imagining it? KH, Pokemon, Digimon. They all made it seem like an entire world of discovery was waiting. Places to be explored, challenges overcome, allies made. It all seemed so easy, so natural. Life, it was calling to me.
Now I don't want to leave my house most days.
Now most days I wish this wasn't my life.
>implying this still doesn't give you chills
You feel it too, don't you?
Why are we here... just to suffer?
108 here. it didnt register the first hundred and always said "8" on the high score selection. my friend always tried to beat it but never could because he wouldnt believe i got over 100
Holy smit. I had a huge stack of these. Gave them to my friend whose big into sonic a few years ago, but he immediately turned around and sold it for drugs.
Fuck em' though, some of those were special edition and still in sleeves. #regrets
Meh, Gohan going SSJ2 was better
I wanted one but nodody I knew had any interest in it. But I did have pic related.
I remember searching for Love Hina and found some Love Hina hentai anime and I was so shocked, I was just a kid, I just closed that shit and didn't even delete the file off of the family computer.
>eyeball at the top
what did they mean by this?
my mom used to buy me packs of these that i would resell marked up and then i'd use that money to buy more.
my mom is great
I don't want to feel.
Probably wasn't selling enough.
Alot of shit stops due to that. Galaxy did alot of chocolate mousse pots and they were heaven on earth but stopped even though I bought at least 40 a week and know others that did.
Other shit is like Sara Lee Gateau, Fizzy spangles, Flake snows, Taz bars, Violet crumbles, Flumps, Squeezeits, Funny feet ice creams and nerds.
I cannot eat fruit because I always had friends who ate fruit cups, baggies of apple slices, whole oranges, etc. in the most loud, lip-smacking, juice squirting way. Slurping and making gross noises. I have gone my entire life eating fruit on maybe 5 occasions because I am too fucking grossed out by how the people around me ate fruit growing up.
>Had Digimon lunchbox filled with my Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh cards
>Didn't even play with them, just liked looking at the artwork
>Had it for nearly a decade
>I find it in my dad's tool shed covered in dust
>Decide to look over the cards for old times sake
>Leave the lunchbox on my bed and go out for a bit
>Ask my mom where it went
>She donated it to the church's toy collection bin
>possibly hundred of cards gone in a flash
Any of you amigos had a Super Van City?
It was a pain in the dick to find a battery for this thing like 10 years ago, can't imagine now. I didn't get to battle much because I only knew one person with one and his brother took it apart for shits and couldn't put it back together.
How come did Minecraft never ever get it's own food? Bookstores are fucking filled with Minecraft shit but you never see it in grocery stores.
>Look for songs, end up finding random AMVs
>Get super confused
>To young to understand video editing so I thought that the bands playing were actually covering whatever anime was on screen
How retarded I was.
To this day. I both love and hate Linkin Park. Every song is just so lovably cheesy and edgy and to this day both LP and Evanescence (you know the one) are used in shitty AMVs.
Weird m8, I mean there were specific rules to getting them to digivolve but if I recall, simply cleaning their shit, feeding them and giving them vitamins normally would have him go into Greymon.
If you didn't clean up shit, he became that slug digimon.
Sometimes he would become something that looked like a Hitmonchan but I don't remember what digimon that was supposed to be. I think this was if you overfed him.
My cousin supposedly got him to Metalgreymon once and I usually got him to Mozaemon.
well since you can watch all the cutscees of a brand new game on release you'll probably never know
hell chances are you'll know the entire game before it releases because people are impatient faggots these days
Who the fuck remembers ZBots, these things were the shiiiit, I used to have so many of these including the big base one that had missiles for fingers.
>had one when i was 3
>spiderman themed i think
>the glass broke one day
>out of curiosity i ate two of the balls and almost choked twice
>after my parents initial shock they told me to poop it out
>it never came out
Only once did I actually manage a really high score by getting that weird rubber-ball upgrade. I never bothered again after that
>Toonami teasers and promos
ARE YOU JUST GONNA KEEP RUNNING AWAY!?
I really liked this commercial as a kid.
holy shit. I used to eat those nachos religiously.
the better question is how is newgrounds still alive?
i don't know mate, the kids over here won't shut up about the game not unlike how we wouldn't shut up all those years ago
anyone played the computer game based on this?
>He finds lunch box in toolshed
>Takes it to room to look at
>Leaves on bed to go out
>Is gone when he gets back
>This is somehow acceptable
nobody actually used picto chat senpai
I think I trolled the public DS demo display like once and that's it
>try those at a free sample booth
>fall in love
>mom never lets me get it because my older brothers liked AppleJacks
>they get discontinued
I never even got to have a bowl.
>be at daycare
>eating the lunchables hotdogs
>end up getting sick and blowing chunks
>was too tiny so they tried to force me head into the trashcan, accidently pushing me in it
>upside down throwing up in a trashcan
>in a panic they lock me in the bathroom with a child safety lock from the inside
>mfw stuck in a bathroom covered in puke until mom picked me up later that day
>mfw waking up from having a sleepover at some kids house and ate the entire box before he woke up
>trying to make multi-image pictures
>race to see who can make the first all-black screen so we can copy it and make white-line drawings
that thing was godlike for car trips
She was just sifting through stuff to donate, we have so much junk in our house that telling me about it never occured to her. Hopefully some kid is enjoying the first gen Pokemon cards, regular Yu-Gi-Oh cards and the
dozens of bootleg Yu-Gi-Oh cards that I got from the Mexican flea market with the shiny foil because I didn't know any better
>pic related is the lunch box
It's alright, my mom was just being a good Christian and donating our stuff, besides I was like sixteen when that happened.
Someone "hacked" Into my Independent School district's shared drive on computers once and everyday there'd be a few LAN parties, sometimes for people in other high schools. shit was dope.
Always had MJ on my team, he da best
>This album came out in 2003
>2003 was 13 years ago
>There are teenagers who weren't alive when the PS2 came out
>High school seniors' first consoles were the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii
>We're the last generation to remember a time before 9/11, constant surveillance, datamining, social media, memes and smartphones
WAKE ME UP
>that one movie you dragged your parents into seeing and now you feel so bad you had to make them suffer through it
What was it /v/? Pic related
I'm sorry mom. I was 13 and a little faggot
>Go to drink bottle of coke
>Dad put liquor in it
>Smell every bottle I drink now
>Surge was brought back
>but Orbitz never will be
Also, OP reminded me. Sure the games might not have been the best, but I think the supplemental material and such was so much better in Gen 1 and Gen 2.
I might just buy those old Pokemon Manga.
Well I supposes there's that, I just can't imagine my parents just coming into my room and taking shit to sell.
Toonami was always the hypest shit with its promos.
It was kinda weird in the UK, started off as CNX then Toonami then ended a few years before it did in the USA.
So good watching shit like Outlaw Star and Gundam though.
I'm not the only one that saved up enough labels for the dog plushie, right??
i still watch action league now once in a while
the part at the end where you take back the castle was hype af
Thanks for this thread. It's good to think back on simpler times. You're all diamonds.
>Kids will never grow up with Mr. Rogers ever again
>Kids these days are too spastic to even appreciate him
>Kids only want positive feedback asap, think he's boring
I feel old complaining about kids WHAT IS THIS
Meh, the cards reeked of moist soil so they probably weren't worth much at all and the actual lunchbox was dented to hell with all the shit that was on it, so bad that it couldn't lock properly.
MORE FUN THAN - A PILLOW FIGHT
Nostalgia threads are always God Tier on /v/. There are ALWAYS perfect. Part of the reason why I still come here
I saw this with my older brother and I remember nothing about this, it felt like a blur to me. All I remember was the theater was empty even though the movie was recent at the time. It must have been really bad then.
It's such an alien concept to me, I'd be fucking furious.
You too anon,
we can never go back ;_;
It was called The Stress Game and it basically put an overlay over top your actual desktop background and let you shoot with a machine gun or smash it with a hammer or a bunch of other shit. We installed that shit on every computer in the lab in middle school man.
implying this wasn't the better game
You Eat and you Earn, noob
My fucking ankles
>not still having this in your basement
>You were that lonely kid with few friend
>You wanted a robot buddy
>The robot toy explosion of the late 90's early 2000's tricked you again and again with their mechanical pets.
an example of something I actually had.
You weren't one of those faggots who fingered the hole, were you?
>That level where the power was off and the house was filled with ghost
>That level where you play as Spike in that dark creepy sewer
>That level where you get chased by those geese
>That mini golf level where if you going exploring around in the pyramid, you get attacked by fucking mummies
>That level where you fight those creepy robots in the basement
This game was fucking nightmare fuel as a kid. Why did they make it so fucking scary
Holy shit I vaguely remember this. What was this shit?
>"MOM AND DAD DON'T KNOW"
Kinder Surprise Eggs are banned in the USA, but guns aren't.
HOLY FUCK WHY DO I STILL REMEMBER THIS
For the britbongs, getting home from school and watching the following...
I know right? I tried to show my nephew it once and he got fucking bored. They have the attention span of flies nowadays. Mr. Roger dug pretty deep with issues to though, showing that not everything is happy and innocent. ie. divorce
>hiding behind the couch when the clown toy appears
I miss not caring about whether I can source my food or if it's owned by Monsanto.
The N64 game right? I think I might have had it. Was it the scavenger hunt one?
back when I was into flash games I'd have about 2 hours of this before my dad got home, he didn't want me playing violent videogames. I find it quite ironic now because given my minimal exposure to violence I grew up to become one of Japan's most cunning serial killers. As i speak I have at least 4 bodies in my basement cooler and another 2 dissolving in acid. I also cut off my dad's pinky finger after he died to have something to remember him by. Love you dad.
