What memories do you have of the innocent past life?
i think that was also the menu music right?
Once, this was all the mattered in the world
I played this game WAY TOO MUCH.
What was so fun was intentionally fucking up history so that nazis won the second world war and end up nuking England.
I still have mine. 31 years old here.
I somehow bypassed this and moved straight to bicycle. I took the training wheels off when I was five and taught myself how to ride it in about ten minutes because I didn't have a father or anyone to teach me things. ;__;

My most beloved childhood toy. I never saw the TV show it's from, didn't even know what it was until I was an adult. Anyone have this?
Not many people I know remember this game, I played this to get through the hot summers of the 2000s.
This was at my grandma's house. She had cooler toys than we had.
>tfw you will never go back to those times where you were just an innocent happy child who had no idea of the dark and harsh future that awaits
I had a children's music tape I listened to every night at bedtime. One of the songs was about a strange machine. I can't remember any more details than that, does anyone know what I'm talking about?
The lyrics were like "It went blip when it bopped" or something.
I never had this, but I had a Lego catalog that I would look at every day and circle the ones I really wanted. We were poor so I never did get them.
I miss creepy crawlers, I would spend literally hours making and playing with these. My favorite were the dinosaurs.
here's another. Not my pic, but I still have these.
I never knew what these were for, but I still collected them
These got me.
Anyone have one of these things?
Fuck yea, of course. I remember building Makuta and his motorcycle on my floor.
Pic related pretty much only things I read in elementary school
>Posting the castle
>Not posting subjectively superior vikings or pirates
This fucking game
captcha+muting is making life hell
I used to build huge railways that would loop around my bedroom and into the hall
Fucking miss this desu
Holy shit I fucking loved those things. You were supposed stand them up and flick them to try and knock other ones down. If you played with a friend you could, for example, make bets to see who could knock one down first and trade them. They were called gogo's, my friends and I all had them.
You play against another person. Both of you line up your things on opposite sides of an arena, and takes turns flicking them with your finger at the oppenents things. Whoever has the most remaining ones wins. At least that's how I played it with my brother.
Mortal Kombat II on SNES and Mortal Kombat Trilogy on Playstation 1. Those games turned me into the Street Fighter lovin' fightanfag I am today. Even though I used to love MK, I completely skipped on MK9 and MK10 because they aren't "hardcore" like SF4, or something like that.
I didn't play with these in the traditional way. My brother and I would wage wars with them. Each type of piece was a different race or part of a different faction or something, and the long rod pieces were their weapons. When one died, we would break the weapon piece off to show that they had dropped it. We had hundreds of these things and the battles were huge. We did the same thing with Lego, those toy army guys, stuffed animals, even marbles. I wish I could go back, man.
fuck. I remember this
if you type "B-E-R-R-Y" at the home screen you got a cheat menu where you could pick any level you wanted to play.
I never got past that god damn place with the giraffes and hippos where you swing while listen to "cant wait to be king".
The last level was GOAT as fuck.
My older cousin taught me how to get past it, thats the only reason I could.
That level was made hard on purpose so that people renting the game wouldn't be able to finish it too quickly and would buy the game.
>walk into class and see this
I'm crying now because I can remember that I was actually happy back then... I remember this toy all too well, the distinct clicking sound it made when you brought the car up to the top...
How do you know you played ti if you dont remember?
Nigga. I had a whole thing in my head about them.

Playstation and playstation 2 all day with my friends
Going online in Ratchet and Clank 3 for the first time and getting yelled at by 20-somethings, and enjoying the shit out of the whole experience
Going to my buddy's house to play halo 2 because my parents wouldn't buy it for me
Posting on nerf gun forums and borrowing my dad's tools to modify my own
Listening to music my parents didn't like and feeling rebellious as hell about it
>tfw my parents couldn't afford to get me a pair
I did get a pair of SOAPS though. Got to grind on benches and curbs all day.
Until you ran over that tiny imperceptible stone that was lying on the schools linoleum floor, heard the dreaded scraping, and went flying head first into something.
I only ever broke my bones once, and it was because of these things. Snapped my wrist trying to recover from falling, because of the tiny pinhead sized rock lying on the floor.
Fuck these things.
You ought to try heroin.
It made me feel like an innocent loved child again. It brought back that childlike ignorant bliss and euphoria, with feelings of contempt and love.
Two years later, and i had to get clean, it was the worst. Now i am always reminded that that feel waits for me, for 20$ a bag at the corner around the street somewhere.
You wrote something sad and added a pic of a guy drinking alcohol, how does that not mean something?
Do you realize you are browsing r9k? What do you expect to see? Normal people?
Fuck off - you and your alcohol
LEGO System was honestly the best thing they've ever done.
They had absolutely amazing sets that you could use to build a billion things.
Now it's basically
>oh, you want a regular truck? $400 please
I lost my innocence at a young age, not virginity I just was exposes to the horrors of the world and realities that no young child should deal with.
Did anyone else play with the Lego Jack Stone sets? Jack Stone was the best as a kid.
These marble toys. One of my friends had the biggest one and I would always play with it for hours at his house
This was something i got for my 3rd or 4th birthday. Coincidentally, my grandmother is also a hasidic jew. I guess she was trying to start me young. I had so much fun with it until i lost the coins, and figured out you can cheat by pressing the little levers in the coin slot with something. I tried the same thing with every vending machine, gumball machine etc. from that point on.
I had both of those games man
Can't remember what happened to them though
I remember, my father used to get this big thousand page catalog from a hobby outlet that had everything in it, from tools to electronic components to wires and all sorts of shit.
I would spend so much time reading through all of it, looking at all the components, trying to comprehend what they did. I circled the ones that really interested me, it greatly calmed my nerves. My parents thought i might have been autistic, but came out relatively normal.
One day my father bought me an electronics starter toy box set that had a breadboard and all sorts of components in it with instructions, and i had a whale of a time with it.
I made contraptions that would trigger a lamp when a plant needed water, i made a light that would turn on when it got dark, i made an alarm that would activate when a contact was opened, etc.
Ever since i have been more interested in the theoretical and scientific realm, as the emotional world always greatly confused me.
I loved my PS1 when I was younger, so many good games which give me warm feelings, especially things like Spyro and Rayman.
>implying Bill Nye or magic schoolbus were boring
>I wish I could go back, man.
i know this feel, and i know it to be true.
Did anybody order a Nostalgia vault, extra edgy music on the side?
>tfw I had this set
It was one of my favorites. I remember the Lego factions: b-tron, m-tron or something, and the ice planet guys with the neon orange chainsaws. Good times.
Sorry too lazy to post a pic lol
i had this one at one point but lost parts and the whole thing very fast
I remember those catalogs. And this whole line of Legos.
Before Lego sold out, now most of their shit is Marvel, Star Wars and other name brand merchandise.
But they're still Lego after all
Anyone else have this? I can't find a picture of the actual toy but there were a bunch of soldiers with various weapons, a castle with removable parts to simulate destruction, and all the artillery would shoot marble-sized plastic balls to break the castle. There were also siege towers that had destruction bits too.
Holy shit was it fun. My dad and I would have large battles with this.
I think I may search for this on ebay. Best toy.
Why was the playstation 1/2 so GOAT? I loved the shit out of Jak and Daxter + Ratchet and Clank in my teen years
That game is nowhere near old enough to be nostalgic for me, but I kind of know what you mean. I've played it so much that I can't enjoy it the way I used to any more.
It's far and away my favorite game of all time. I've beaten it hundreds of times with basically every possible character build, done multiple NG+6 SL1 runs and gotten every achievement. The only thing I never bothered to get into was speedrunning.
No but my brother had the pirate one and I had some shitty one where it was just a catpult and a handfull of knights.
>Parents were willing to shell out big bucks for all these expensive toys for my brother
>When I wanted pirate or knight toys like what he had (didn't have to be expensive) my parents find the cheapest shit they could find
>tfw I now realize my parents never actually wanted me
T-thanks mom and dad.
At the time, there was no other gaming experience like it, save for the arcade.
When the N64 and PS1 rolled out, they delivered a gaming experience that was pretty much only found in the realm of high end super expensive computer hardware.
When i played my first PS1 game (Running Wild it was called or somethin) with my friend, it was mind blowing awesome how good it looked, and how much fun it was.
Today, every smartphone can deliver a gaming experience that rivals a PS3. We have become so accustomed to it that it no longer holds a special place in our minds.
I had the DOS game and I think it gave me autism
Yep, it was a big part of me and my brother's inter-universe battles. The castle couldn't hold up to giant fucking dinosaurs.

It sucks these threads are always full of plastic toys, video game references , and junkk food. I was born into a poor hippy single mom household so i never get to nostalgia with you guys.
Also though you guys lives fucking disgusting childhoods
>I go to some cheap shit store and see all the cheap-ass toys.
>For a second I forget I'm 18 years old and want to get one.
>Army men with easily-snapped limbs, miscoloured dragons and shit...
>Then I remember I'm an adult now and I'll never have a Christmas where the floor is covered in presents again.
>I feel immature for wanting to be a kid again, but sad because I have to do adult shit now.
I guess we all have to grow up sometime. I guess I'll just buy my future kid some of the same knock off army men and crap Korean action figures I had as a kid and play with them myself.
I'm crying a little right now...
who else got this for their 10th birthday?!
this was my favorite..along side with my mighty max collection! damn 90's!
I got one of these when I was 5
I tried to make some with my parents but they would never read the instructions on anything
It ended up as a failure
Even now, they still will not read instructions
Did anyone else here play that one PC game with the detectives that were dinosaurs? I distinctively remember something about wandering around a desert city solving a mystery and something to do with "Pharoah Fawcett's Tomb"
Played it around the same time I was playing Freddi Fish and the Jumpstart Advanced games
waldorf kid here, want to post wooden toys with me?
Downloaded it again a while back, works on win 7 with some tinkering and still fun.
Haha hey cool man! I was in waldorf too, have spent so many hours messing around with those polygons. Did you ever make halfpenny dolls? Pic related. I remember making tons of those with wooden swords and stuff.
When did you start playing vidya? If ever?
Are you me? My family collected all the catalogues, the earliest was from 1990 and the oldest Lego set my brothers had was from the mid 80s I so wanted these goddamn Space Cop sets from the 90s, the ones with the red plastic glass. They looked so amazing and still do.
yep, those faceless fucks were creepy in retrospect but I liked them way more than watercolor.
When was your first taste of the internet? I was homeschooled so it was sort of a creeping thing, like go online and do this lesson or research something, eventually I ended up hanging out in Wikipedia's IRC channels while pretending to work, they told me about the best vidya and non-educational websites.
my castle > your castle
Just as an example, see pic.
> just got AOE1 (after playing aoe2 for a long time)
> Play it on my sisters computer
> young as fuck, using cheat codes
> parents and sister are gone so grandma is taking care of me
> microwaves dinner that mum prepared

> go with chicken curry which was the most delicious thing of all time
> play some more aoe
Its funny how sometimes totally unimportant things like that stay in our mind completely clear. I miss my grandma desu senpai
Playing Lego's while talking to my therapist.
Lego's and yellow flowers remind me of how I was fucked since childhood.
Hahaha right? I didnt realize how creepy they were till i looked them up to ppst here. Its crazy how much of a part watercolors and felt played a part in my childhood.
Hmmm good question..
Honestly dont really remember. I wasnt homeschooled and probably used the internet a bit at school when i was young. I went to middleschool at a school my mom tought at though so id have to sit in her classroom for hours at a time and that was the first time i got free reign on a computer. I was immediatley obsessed with tv because we never ever owned a tv in our house (still to this day) so i would sit there all the time downloading shows and going on fan forums for the shows and goofy stuff like that. Found four chan pretty quickly and then my nonbrowsing days were forever over haha
Typing this out makes me realize how fucking weird most people would think my life has been...
Interesting. I too have memories of lego and yellow things. I was a particularly troubled child with huge disregard for authority and established protocols, that caused me many problems in preschool and kindergarten. The only time i ever felt happy, at ease was when i played with my legos.
Tell me more.
Yellow flowers because I was bullied from elementary school through the end of middle school, I once got beaten up so bad that a kid gave me a broken arm and eye shiner and I needed to go to the hospital, there was yellow flowers by my bed.
lego's because I developed anti-social behavior and my parents got me a therapist
This at grandparents house while playing video games. yup.
>videos being watched right now
I remember that every so often a porn clip would pop up in there. Now those were some good faps.
>tfw probably fapped to underage tits on youtube at least once in my life
Just the sheer amount of time I spent on art and visiting state parks and such with the homeschool group is super different from the average elementary school experience when I think about it. Bet most anons never visited an organic farm and brought back bags of wool for crafts.
WHERE DID THE TIME GO
High school, my parents couldn't keep it up financially and didn't have degrees anyways so I was basically learning everything independently by then. I had trouble socially (what board are we on?) but the academic system wasn't much of a problem, first test I ever took passed me out of algebra and geometry. That's when I got full freedom with video games and computer time.
How was farm life? Despite all the naturalism I've always been a city boy.
Oh yeah, and beeswax crayons beeswax candles beeswax sculptures DAE BEESWAX
Until i took some toilet paper, rolled it into a wick, layered the outside with the beeswax, and lit it on fire and burned half my room down, yes, shit had so many uses.
I used it to take impressions of coins, then filled it with molten plastic from other toys, let it harden and used the plastic round i made in gumball machines.
>tfw sitting in mom's lap watching her play Donkey Kong Country 2
>tfw laughing at her making up vulgar names for the levels
>tfw her parents would tell her to stop cussing in front of me
>tfw playing basketball with a hand-me-down ball and a garbage pail instead of a basket
No I didn't, I never played OoT. It was too expensive and we were poor.
>tfw nostalgia isn't a comfy feeling anymore
>tfw stomach and chest pain from thinking about lost childhood
anyone else share these feels? seeing these toys just makes me want to die t b h senpai
Fuck I remember that.
I also remember Commander Cold from Ice Planet 2002. That Chainsaw is what stuck with me.
I used to play Unreal 2004 for hours every night in HS. A lot of people say 2003 was better but this is the only I played. There are still servers up, but they are custom'd to bits. Just reinstalled with the 5 or 6 cds a few weeks ago.
Also, pic related after school everyday
I got the turtle van and some TMNT figures for Christmas in 1989. I was so stoked.
There was only Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Unreal Tournament 2004 and the newer garbage.
UT2004 is where it was at. Tons of mods, Ballistics Mod one of my faves. I used to be really good at making levels with the map editor, so i build an oversized replica of my bedroom, and me and all of my friends would play against each other on it, after every session there would be some comments, and i would add more stuff to it. The scale was like ants, everything was fucking huge, you could go into my computer, vents in the ceiling, awesome stuff.
I am so sad games don't allow you to be creative anymore. Now it's like this, you're given 10 maps by the company, and if you want 4 more you gotta wait a year and pay 20$.
I so desperately wish the Battlefield series would include a level editor.
I never got into map making but there are definitely some awesome ones out there. May I'll check it out. Just don't have anywhere near the amount of time I had back then. I actually really liked a lot of the stock maps and wish more servers cycled them. Well, I guess I mean I wish there we ppl to play with on those maps still. Now it's either people running the demo map Torlan or mods.
Hi, I'm Bill Ding and you're... BUILDING!
How the fuck has this not been posted yet?
>Happiness was this a bunch of matchbox cars
Whenever I see these, I am always reminded of this game. Don't know why I loved it so much
That and lode runner
