I liked the old doujin games from the era when they still had to distribute their games on CDs at Comiket. This was before Japanese indie developers started publishing on Steam, (which started during the 2010s.)

There were a lot of MUGEN fighting games. There was Eternal Fighter Zero, (a pretty awesome game of characters from KEY fighting each other (Air, Kanon, and One~ Kagayaku Kisetsu e~.) There was an Elfen Lied game, and one of Lucky Star characters fighting each other. It was a glorious time to play obscure otaku games made for otakus.

I wish Steam was filled with games like these.

It's like back in the 2000s otaku culture was in its' golden age. These obscure games were played by all the otakus. Anime was fucking good. 4chan was a decent website.

Good times.

This thread is for music that makes you feel nostalgic. Post yt links to songs that make you feel nostalgic (even if you don't actually have memories with them) and maybe what the song reminds you of or makes you think of.

I'll start…

This song reminds me of my earlier childhood (as far back as I can remember - 7yrs) but especially of my old school. I went to a private christian school in the booneys. This song just makes me think of that time. It reminds me of when things were sort of structured..having to tuck our shirts in…all the girls wearing these dresses that went down to your ankles that would seem way out of fashion now. Getting pulled to the principal's office by my ear with my friend. Going around the merry-go-round. Going to the top of the slide and looking out at a massive field with super high grass that seemed to go on forever and a green and orange forest that seemed to hug the school itself.

This is an unused song from the game Suguri, one of my favorite shmp doujin game franchises from the 2000s. Whenever I hear the soaring dream trance I feel like I'm happily soaring above the clouds and exploring a beautiful level they always wanted to make but never got around to doing. It might have been the best level in the game.

Yeah, it definitely wasn't graphically on par with some of the other games at the time and being a later PlayStation game at that. But as you put it, it's EXTREMELY comfy.

Here's a video showing off some of the 3D models for some of the cards/models that were censored. lol

Finally got around to watching it. Definitely had to get some good laughs out of a lot that he said. So true points such as Twin-headed Thunder Dragon being your best friend in the beginning of the game until you grind your life away trying to get better cards. I still remember literally having to beat the mages 400+ times myself and doing the exact memory card "cloning" of cards. Speaking of that, I should still have a memory card with my save data on it if nothing has happened to it. Haven't probably checked on it for about a decade now though. I've played the Japanese version since then through emulation though. Also makes me realize I shouldn't have allowed all of my childhood friends to have a copy of my save file after doing all of that hard work and made them all go through the struggle themselves. lol

I also agree about the starchips system in the game with booster packs as suggested in the video. That would have made things so much easier. Also his claims with Summoned Skull is false. I had one and pretty sure there was a mage or two specifically you faced to get it. (of course after who knows how many duels) I can only imagine how much of my life was wasted doing free duels to get 'rare' cards.

Pokemon, even though I have to admit that I didn't like gen 6. gen 7 and gen 8 but overall the franchise is precious to me. It always takes me back to the simple days of my childhood, sitting in a corner with my gameboy. Sometimes playing with friends, sometimes with my brother. Especially gen 1 - 4 hit hard, because then I was still a child, sometimes while playing it I remember stuff I had long forgotten.
Everytime I pick up a pokemon game it is like I hold a piece of my childhood. Themes like national park and ss anne make me tear up to the point that I have to mute the sound, else I can't contiune to play.

I think I was probably around 11 or 12 when I first got home access to the internet. It wasn't until I was 15 that I started browsing *chan boards. I'm glad I wasn't any younger- there's a certain degree of desensitizing I've experienced, but it hasn't full-blown made me feel utterly disconnected from other people.

If anything, one of my main take-aways from *chans (and the internet in general) is that most people have something that makes them weird as fuck, even if it's something they never share with others.

This thread should be considered a sort of shrine to notable people we've lost in our lifetimes. Given the board, I'd like to keep things /nos/talgic by focusing on positive feelings. Let's reminisce on the happy moments these people brought, rather than sadness.

I'd like to start with the event that inpired me to think on this matter: Kentaro Miura's recent passing.

I was never intimately familiar with Beserk, but it nonetheless influenced me. I recall watching a video essay about Miura's artstyle and was blown away by the intricacy of his scenes. It inspired me to not only learn how to draw, but to emulate him specifically. I look back on all the hours spent painstakingly crosshatching things I drew. Shading was an odd thing to focus on as a beginner, but it is with fondness for these naive moments that I remember the passion Miura's works instilled in me. RIP

RIP Miura, It hurts me to think he devoted all his life to his manga and couldn't finish it

The same week we got the notice of Miura's passing, two days after that, I got the notice of one of my only friends passed away as well, he was my first friend, we were friends for almost 20 years, it still hurts.

I had TMNT figures, Street Sharks, and Extreme Dinosaurs. Never did have a battle or anything with them though. Mainly just had them team up against other "baddies" I had laying around. I did use to have all of my figures in some really big toy cars/trucks I had do a bunch of races though. I'm sure I probably pitted them against each other in that manner.

Board games! Roleplaying games! Traditional and modern, chess and Dungeons & Dragons.

Do you have games in your heart you liked to play when you were young? What comes to mind when you think of a vacation at your grandparents, what sort of games did they pull out from that old toy-box?

For me it's pic related, Mühle. English name: Nine Men's Morris. I was always a bit too slow for chess but this I could play easily. This week I also started playing Go online. I might get really into it,

It captures the idea of "Easy to learn, Hard to master" very well. I like the philosophy of always looking to improve in the face of losing. I played & played & played and lost maybe 27 games of 30 but then I played against a friend who only knew the rules and I won every game somehow with just a few days of experience.

OP here again. Tomorrow is christmas and I get a Go board as a gift, it's very nice. I regret not asking for a more expensive one but plastic will do for now because I have an idea.

I promised myself that if I get to 10kyu I'll buy a more fancy & expensive one. I hope that after all those lockdowns my local Go club meets again so I can muster up some courage and go there.

I'm definitely showing my age with this one here. But I still have this Batman coin bank from the cereal in a box full of toys and other various things from when I was a kid. Might be the oldest item from a cereal box I have or at least that I still have. I don't really go out to the store very much now days and I don't usually get cereal pickeed up for me any. But this makes me wonder, does cereal even still package "prizes" or anything else? I never see or hear anything about it anymore. Seems like another thing that was taken from the youth of today or just odds and ends collectors.

I think that's okay. I also didn't show much affection for my parents other than an occasional forced hug. I think that happened because I couldn't relate to them, and so I didn't want to open up my soul because I knew they wouldn't really be able understand. Sometimes my mother reproached me in lack of emotionality but ironically enough I've always considered myself to be much more emotional than her, just never really showed that. I used to think that it was just some teenage angst and that one day I'll once again be able to have warm relationships with my parents just like I did in childhood, but now I'm well past puberty and I still feel the same. But I don't regret it at all, honestly. We don't get to choose our parents, so trying to act towards them dishonestly in any way will always be vain.

No.1033

The most interesting conversations, and the most intense fights, that I've ever had were with my mother. It's the affine combinations of mental disorders we share making our conversations sprawl and focus in chaotic harmony with each other. I manage to celebrate my disorders as helping me to see what most others wont, but she got the raw end of the deal in terms of severity and nonfunctionality. When she was weaning off her selfmedication, she grew more suspicious of me, eventually accusing me of things I didn't do, of manipulating her, which was really stressful, and I started to feel like she was manipulating me. In hindsight, it was probably the withdrawal and taking time adjusting to her new chemical balance, but we're effectively estranged now. She said she feared I'd kill her before she left the last time, so I can't even do anything about it.
