I was feeling nostalgic for some old playstation games so I set up the ps1, when the startup sound played I got this pang of nostalgia and wanted to recapture some of that old magic.

So gen chat what makes you nostalgic, makes you remember the good old days. Be it gaming, tv or movies, collectibles, a certain time in your life, etc. Just to note nostalgia isn't limited to a long time ago, you could be nostalgic for something from a few months ago even.

I recall people here reminiscing about the built up to Gta V on the forums, how the sense of excitement was palpable, people eagerly awating new news, similar to the RDR2 section at the moment.

So Gtaf what makes you feel nostalgic?

This video, it was probably the first video I ever saw on YouTube, at least that I can remember. Back when gaming companies were against pesky YouTubers putting videos of their beloved games online. I'm actually surprised it managed to not get deleted.

 

Also this song. Anyone who has watched an YouTube tutorial around 10 years ago will know why.

Good vid. I remember spending many hours watching San Andreas videos. A lot of them were accompanied by this tune.

Many things make me nostalgic because I'm old. 

 

The good ol' sound of dial-up internet and hoping someone in the house didn't pick up the f*cking phone:

The first console I remember best:

I played Atari as a young child but never got that into it. Got the original NES for Christmas when I was 12 and played Super Mario all day long.

This was a good thing. It is all on mobile phones now.

 

I am one who used MSN for long time. Now everyone has mobile apps. It is very strange. 

 

When I get a nostalgia it is when I see a big brick block PS1 with Gran Turismo 2 or when I play Top Gear for the Super Nintendo. 007 Goldeneye I still have it and the N64 so I play it when I have time to take it from the box, unplug everything from the TV, plug all the N64 cables, and blow the cartridges. Which is almost never.

 

There is a similar topic going on Technology forum: http://gtaforums.com/topic/905697-could-you-survive-a-week-using-only-2000s-tech/ 

Could you survive a week using only 2000s tech?

-Dial up internet tone.

-90s cartoons like Ren & Stimpy, Pinky & the Brain, Johnny Bravo, Rocko's Modern Life, Biker Mice From Mars etc.

-Video stores. With Netflix and other online streaming it's been about 4 years since I actually rented a physical movie. It's even more nostalgic thinking back to the days of VHS tapes and having to rewind them.

-Trying to master a yoyo.

-Slinkies.

-Getting excited to get a new toy in a McDonald's happy meal.

-Speaking of which having birthday parties at McDonald's.

 

I'm not implying those last couple of things are something I still do. Or do I? *nudge, nudge, wink, wink*

 

Anyway I really could go on. I miss my childhood so much. :(

Despite all the sh*t my family went through in the early-mid 2000's, I miss those days anyway. Mainly because of the cartoons, the videogames, and not having the constant pressure of not knowing what to do with your life.

What I do not miss are my experiences at school, my classmates (f*ck all of them, nasty assholes) and my lovely behavior when I was a noob on the internet around 2007.

-This stunt video. It's the only reason I found modding. Eventually, I found this forums and now I'm a part of a great community.

-Territory War flash game. I remember playing this game all day long during my 5th grade summer vacation holidays.

-Stunt videos of video games.
-Jazz Jackrabbit

The past will make me feel nostalgic no matter how bad it might have been. I mean, it's ironic how I know right now that I'll be nostalgic about this moment although I don't feel like anything's special and nothing amazing is happening around me anyway.

 

To materialize the nostalgia with an example, I'd say I miss the years of 2010/2011 when I was really at the peak of my Internet presence and I was deep into gaming. I also miss 2009 when I was deep into the Internet and was discovering it. But I mostly miss the year of 2014 when I had my first love and is by far the happiest year in my entire life. I still remember places, songs, feelings, moments, dates, etc. Now that's gone, long gone, but I still walk around those places alone, listening to those songs, remembering anniversaries, moments, and attempting desperately, yet quietly, in my head, to recreate a present from those memories, yet it's impossible. 

 

I guess nostalgia is built around moments when we were really happy, and we only feel nostalgic if whatever moment we're in isn't making us as happy as we used to be. That's why we are nostalgic about the childhood, because we were so young and naive and easier to make happy, and now we're too logical and everything can be explained and seen objectively that it's lost all its' magic. Technically, we're nostalgic of our own ignorance.

I played Atari as a young child but never got that into it. Got the original NES for Christmas when I was 12 and played Super Mario all day long.

I can relate to every single one of them except switch the cell phone with a Nokia and that was my kiddo, teen and high school years

 

Nintendo - Coming home from school and playing Super Mario Bro all day til supper

 

AOL Dial Up - Coming home from school and running straight for the computer and listen for that final sound that told you the vault had opened and you are now Online (I never got any e-mail) and then spending all day and night chatting with girls in chat rooms and trrrrrrying to look at boobs but the 56k modem so slow it took an hour just to show half a nipple and that was only if mom didn't call and kick you offline to check and make sure you were doing your homework

 

Nokia Cell Phone - My first cell phone was a pre-paid Nokia and I spent so much money on minutes on it because of texting my girlfriend after 9pm when she wasn't allowed on the phone anymore (]i]This was before the free calling/texting after 9pm deal[/i])

Nights, Virtua Fighter 2, Fighters Megamix, Sega Rally Championship.

Managed to get them all back, and a boxed Saturn. I don't play them. I just keep them for memories.

I miss gaming at the Arcades with my old friends from school. Skating at the roller rink on weekends for only $5. Miss drive-in theaters and so forth.
