There seems to be an unusually strong feeling of nostalgia recently, especially for the 80s and 90s. It seems especially prevalent for cartoons, movies and video games of that era.

Has anyone else noticed this? Is there any particular reason?

I've been playing my PS2 all week. Not as early as you're talking about, but still getting a bunch of nostalgia playing Tony Hawk 3 and 4.

Star Wars I is back in 3D, everybody. Goddamn film studios taking advantage of our nostalgia


Now if it was 4, 5, or 6 then I would understand, but Episode 1? No, just no.

Yeah I just listed a shit load of games for PS1 that I played and I really wanna play them now. 90's were the bomb.

It's b/c of the Pavement reunion tour, everyone listened to "Gold Soundz" too much & thought it was 1995 again.

But as for me, I do my best to quarantine the past.

I read an article recently about this phenomenon. It proposed that the internet is a great resource for indulging in nostalgia. It also mentioned the descending economy and constant influx of bad news we are more inclined to look for an escape to the seemingly good old days.

The conclusion was that all this looking back holds back forward motion. Myself, I only partly agree with that. Combining new ideas with old ones can lead to interesting effects.

Now I can't sit down and play the same game for several hours straight, I either have something else I'm supposed to do, or I pop in a different game. Now it would take me forever to beat another 100 hour game.

not sure which gran turismo it was but do you...
remember the 500 lap races and after you won you got like a series of flashing cars as a reward unlock but you had to time it just right to hit x on the right the right car? ??? lol then you win and get the wrong car and rage like a mofo bc the race took three hours lol???

as far as nostalgic things in modern media...yo gabba gabba ftw!!! lol that shit is all nintendo styled, if you will...,,in my defense though, I do have a child

It's because the 90s were ****ing awesome. No generation has had a childhood as badass as the kids who grew up during the 90s because they didn't have Nicktoons, Cartoon Network, N64, PS1, or Gameboy. That decade was the high point for being a child. It will never be that awesome again.

Yeah I got a GameBoy emulator, and a Nintendo 64 emulator. Been playing some sweet games.


I wish I hadn't left my PS3 and PS2 back in Dubai though. I planned on selling the PS3 before I left, but I didn't and I really miss it.
