“N64 slumber parties with goldeneye.”

“Parents having no idea where I was, and everything turning out just fine.”

“Life without social media(and before anyone says it, yes I know I can just choose not to use it but it’s not the same), good music, weekend sleepovers, no responsibilities, writing notes and journaling, being goth(back before Hot Topic bastardized it).

I went through my teens in the 90s and I had a blast. If I could go back to 97 or 98 and just freeze time forever I totally would.”

 

-Deleteduser

 

“Positive outlook of the future.”

“Old Nick shows. Legends of the Hidden Temple, GUTS/Global GUTS, Clarissa Explains It All, All That, Figure It Out, Double Dare, etc.”

“No cellphone. Amazing parties, clubs, bands, street life.”

“Lack of social media. Not being able to be contacted on a moment’s notice. Yeah we had landlines, later on beepers, cells became common place in the late 90s. But text, as much as I love it, is a double edged sword. People feel the need to contact you via text whenever they have the whim.”

“I miss the commercials. I remember getting so excited for my favourite commercials. They were more colourful, more wacky, and generally more fun than ads nowadays.”

 

-Tennybrotha

 

“The newness of the games. 1999 was the peak year for the Nintendo 64 from my perspective.”

“The overall optimistic feel with them. Things feel far more negative now.”

 

-Flick1981

 

“The TV Shows. There are definitely amazing shows out nowadays, but I just feel like TV was more fun back then. Cartoons too.”

 

-Insidendonut88

 

“POGS! Can’t believe how stoked we all used to get over circular pieces of cardboard.”

 

-all6the6same

 

“Collecting and trading Pokemon cards. Never actually played, only collected. It was awesome.”

 

-LJLondon

 

“90s music was top-notch. Probably the last decade before things started to feel really manufactured and lame. Still listen to 90’s bangers to this day.”

 

-Bubble12738f4

 

“Quality of the movies. Solid stories, fun and funny and exciting and a lot had cool cold opens. And they didn’t replace writing with CGI nonsense, or stunts and effects with CGI nonsense.”

 

-TR8R2199

 

“How insanely vibrant everything was. Neon clothing, neon lights, music everywhere. Between the grunge inspired existential angst and the Y2K fears, there was a strong sense of “party today because tomorrow is gonna suck”. This was the height of the Scene scene- the rave scene, the Chicano party scene, the NY party scene, etc. There was before camera phones and social media, so what you did didn’t have the social ramifications that they do now. If the 90’s were a movie, they’d be Batman Forever, only with better music.”
