    So if you read my blog I was talkin about nostalgia
    So what are a few things that give you nostalgia?
    This is a big one for me

    Wish they'd bring back Toonami.

    Here's another one

    That game was sick.
    Also the first game I ever played.

    So yeah, post it up.

    Well a lot of stuff, but like the other dude who bagged a N64 recently I too have gotten back into that lately but never sold mine, just lost a good many games. Few I ditched I'd re-buy but I'm trying out fresh meat. I got Rogue Squadron, Pilotwings64(re-buy), Nightmare Creatures and Shadowgate64 which are all pretty damn good. I also knowing Dreamcasts are rarer to find in working order and games are a bitch since the medium is really antsy with scratches am looking to likely nab Hydro Thunder, R2R Boxing1, and Gauntlet on N64 as they're fantastic on there. I got a few other ideas for games lined up too.

    But hell if you want nostalgia fire up some old cartoons of the 80s I grew up on. You post that opening movie clip to the tv series ROBOTECH and it'll go flooding back. Hell stuff like Thundercats, Transformers, GI Joe (back when they shot each other and had PSAs at the end), and some of the other goodies of the era.

    what i really want to do is start playing consoles from scratch. for about 3 months each console. u know buy a nes and a crap load of games, play for 3 months and then move on, in the order or release. start with the nes and end probably when the ps5 is out lol. theres a few reasons i want to do this.

    1: i will get to play all the awesome nes games i didnt get to play when i was younger as i only wanted to play games like mario toy story etc.
    2: by the time i go from nes to the modern consoles all the great games and consoles will be cheap.
    3: by the end of it all i will have all my old consoles back. ive owned them all except the virtual boy and the sega saturn but ive sold them [​IMG]

    Music.

    If I listen to a song it reminds me of what I was doing when I listened to it. For example, 'Sailing to Philadelphia' by Mark Knopfler reminds me of walking to class at Bentley in the mornings last summer, because I listened to it so many mornings whilst doing just that.

    Sorry, I can't get this to embed properly
    Just remembered this one the other day. I loved the idea of this movie so much...

    And pretty much anything that was really popular in the 90s, I went rabid for. Tamagotchis, Pokemon games/cards/show... Bionicles were fun... but yeah, mostly pokemon.

    Pokemon, mostly.
    Especially the one's from Kanto and Johto.

    And the songs from the anime playing during those two region arcs.

    Wow that literally was the last of the non-halfassed american cartoons where it had good stories, good humor, and not massive skipped frames. Damn shame really.
