"Touchscreens (in the end). At the beginning it was seen as a nice gimmicky feature but unusable. Like AR glasses at the moment."

 

"The lord of the rings trilogy."

 

"Super Mario 3"

 

"The miniseries Chernobyl. Just watched it again last night for the upteenth time. Chernobyl and Band of Brothers are damn near perfect."

 

"Lionel Messi. Every time when an Argentine young player comes up he is hyped to be next Maradona. But many faded from half way in their career. Messi was hyped way too much in that regard from the age of 17. Now almost at the end of his career, most of the football lovers and pundits consider him on par or above Maradona on footballing ability."

"I was so excited for spiderman ps4 and my god did it deliver"

 

"Spotify premium.

Longest running subscription I have, and totally worth it."

 

"Iron Man (2008).

“Alright, a movie made by Marvel, how bad could it be?”"

 

"Bioshock

I still remember all the great trailers set to Bobby Darin’s “Beyond the Sea” and how cool the plasmids looked and the flooded art deco aesthetic. Then the game turned out to be even better than expected."

 

"The Xbox. For a Microsoft product, it was actually pretty damn good."

"Parasite. See it if you haven’t."

 

"Life after high school.

Was suicidal as a teen but fortunately listened to the advice of “It gets better”. Hot damn, it really does. Got out of my small town, got to finally live life for a change outside that stifling, judgmental environment, and experience how living really does beat the alternative."

 

"The Dark Knight. I remember the hype train being like no other movie I can remember. Wonderfully orchestrated media, really harnessed the internet in all the right ways. I started to think the movie was gonna be all hype and little substance. When the Joker put the pencil through that guy’s head, it was all over for me. Within the first quarter of the movie, I was already declaring it the best super hero flick I ever saw (at the time)"

 

"Lebron James. He was hyped as the next Michael Jordan. ESPN was covering his high school games. It was said that if he didn’t become a hall of famer then he’s a bust. Not only did he lived up to the hype, he exceeded it. He became 1b to Jordan’s 1a.

Also, except for The Decision and some China [email protected]#t, he barely has any scandal which is crazy during these social media times"

 

"The Internet.

In the early days when it stopped being solely for universities and government, people, media, etc. was unsure what to make of it and how useful it would be."

"Thanos.

Ever since he was teased at the first Avengers movie, he was being made out to be THE villain you didn’t want to [email protected]#k with. His underling cowering before him, Ronan wincing as we heard him speak for the first time… Thanos was teased at throughout the timeframe, and was a buildup for a grand finale.

I would argue that Thanos not only met expectations, he EXCEEDED them. Josh Brolin gives this portrayal of a villain convinced that he knows what is right for the entire cosmos. He has his personal reasons for why he wants to kill off half of everything in the universe. No monologues about describing his scheme, just a simple plan of getting the Infinity Stones and knowing how to manipulate the Avengers into basically giving him what he wants. And it just [email protected]#king works. He has ungodly strength, yet he can [email protected]#k with his opponent without even raising a finger.

To this day, the Thanos Snap still is being memed at."

#6 Wrong. PS4 Spider-Man is overrated. Combat was clunky and had too many forced-in elements.

Viola,

99 out of a 100 people obviously disagree with you if you look at the scores and reviews by critics and users...
Maybe it's just you that didn't like it?

Augustina,
Was your comment written by a 60 year old cranky grampa that doesn't like "all those newfangled things"?

I live in a small village (1700 people, when I was born maybe 500 which was even better) near Brussels (20 km from te centre,say 12 miles) and say 8 miles from Leuven. Love it. Green. Birds. Our own forest. You can walk an hour without seeing anyone but you are very near to the city. Why would you want to move to the city by God?
