What websites did you visit a lot when you were young?

>pic related (basically a site full of kids' games, went there all the time when I was like 8)

>Disaster Labs (group of people who made games, flash movies, webcomics, and other stuff; they disbanded in the late 00s and I still don't know where everyone went)
>Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, etc.
>every cheat code and FAQ site under the sun
>Newgrounds, Albinoblacksheep, and all the flash game sites that grabbed games from them

i'm too old for this vid to find this specific vid nostalgic, but i love the idea of this subtle, relaxing nostalgia fuel. it makes me want to try and make some of my own?

what would your scenes be like?

mine would be: journaling/doodling late at night while i listen to Art Bell on the radio during a thunderstorm, rp-ing on lotr forums while listening to loreena mckennit, sneaking downstairs at night to watch cowboy bebop on adult swim after everyone else had gone to sleep.

when i was little, i had a digital alarm clock then when you held down the snooze button, would produce an orange glowing light. at a close range this proved to work well as a flashlight.

i'd use this clock to read chapter books and archie comics when i was supposed to be asleep.

No.769

Playing minecraft hunger games in the evenings with my buds would be a big one. In the summer we'd spend the afternoon at the pool then run home to play once it started to get dark. I'd convince my mom to let me skip dinner so we could keep playing. The server we played on was cool in that you could go way out into the map (like thousands of blocks) and were only pushed back in after a while. You could build floating bases and stuff and defend them, it was really fun.

Also my first year of college I was really depressed and would spend the nights hiding in a corner of the library reading and texting my high school friends. Kind of weird to be nostalgic about it since I was pretty unhappy, but I guess you forget that with time.

No.770

>>769

aw, i like these. i have similar college memories of finding the most isolated corners of the library stacks to do work in, all night long. it was lonely and sort of spooky, but it also inspired me somehow. i never want to pull another all-nighter in my life, but you're right, somehow those memories are still nostalgic.

The comfiest scenes of nostalgia fuel for me would be late night grinding on Guild Wars back in, I guess it would've been middle school. During summer days my room would be far too hot without AC, so I'd only be able to play once night came around, and if it was raining the atmosphere would be even better, with the cold breeze and smell of rain refreshing my room; pretty similar to OP's vid.
I feel like I can never re experience that feeling unfortunately, the closest I can get is mid-spring late nights spent studying and listening to music.

No.955

Sitting on my old PC finding random websites to come across as well as various anime forums and geocities all the while watching late night anime on TV in the early 2000s.

I played the 2nd game and I liked it a lot. It was fun to have 2d and 3d levels.Yoshi is the best addition and his items allowed for some cool levels.

The challenge was high enough for young little me to take over a year to complete it 100%. Still my favorite Mario game.

The galaxy games were past my time, but not by much. Super mario 64 on the N64 and then Sunshine on GC were mine, and yes, the music in both of those games I regularly listen to. Video game music has become a really big part of my audio library.

Either way, we can all relate to the fact that Nintendo makes wonderfully memorable games with levity and a great ability to make you want to lose yourself in them for a time.

So recenty I been having a blast for what was like to surf the internet 10 years ago when things were not so centralized.
There was always something new and different right after the next corner and every new place had new people.
I haven't felt that feeling of novelty when you stumbled upon a new resource, flash game, webcomic and so on in a long time, it was always different.

The internet is no longer the wild frontier it used to be and all the pioneers have disappeared.

Years ago common forums were very active and lots of people had personal pages
Today not even google can take you somewhere new.

Not sure if it really belongs in a nostalgia thread, but: http://www.adriancole.org/index.html

It's a memorial website for a young baby, Adrian, who died of meningitis. The mother, 18 at the time, shut the biological father, Matt, out of her life and was raising the baby with her (even younger) new boyfriend. The father only saw his son, he claims, when the baby was in intensive care at the hospital before his death.

It was suspected that the boyfriend, Josh, had shaken the baby and contributed to its death with abuse and neglect. It went to trial but the boyfriend was found innocent and acquitted. The father, Matt, set up the website and blogged about the trial. Here is the last entry, from 2003:
>The End of court…
>by matt

>Josh was found inocent and every charge, he some how got completly out of every thing. I don't know what to say.. Right now I really don't wanna talk i'll leave one last update tomarrow and leave more on my update about what happened, I don't fully understand it, the DA said they will call us tomarrow morning let us know why he was found inocent on all charges… well i'll be back when I understand better…

I really feel like it's time for me to sell my old games and move onto playing new games.

>>753
Regrettably I have already sold Kirby: The Crystal Shards for N64, but do you have a SNES? If you still want Kirby's Dream Course for the SNES I'll mail to you if you live in America. You don't even have to pay me directly, just promise me on your honor that you'll donate $25 to either Bernie Sander or Andrew Yang via secure.actblue.com/‎
to fuck the corrupt capitalist 2 party system and then post your address somewhere and you'll get the game. Just so you know, it's a mini-golf game. (Kirby's Super Star and Kirby 3 are probably the best Kirby style platformers for the SNES, but I only have the first one.)

Alternatively, I'll mail you Kirby's Super Star if you donate $30 to one of those two Democratic candidates. (And I'll mail both of them for a $55 donation.) Shipping is free because the Ebay or Amazon conglomerates would charge me that much for commissions, and my total price is cheaper than what I've seen on ebay or Amazon. Fuck the capitalists, I want to make free college + universal healthcare or universal basic income happen. (Yes, I've become an ideologue who would rather spend my time screaming at Bernie Sander's enemies on, than to play video games. You can play these games, while politics will be my entertainment until Bernie Sanders wins, or dies trying.)

Eh nevermind, I think I should just sell them to be honest and volunteer for the Sanders campaign. Money isn't going to be enough to win the election.

I really wish Bernie Sanders would have won in 2016. He was screwed out of his nomination so bad. I'm honestly worried that he's just simply the "Ron Paul" of his party now.

Yes, I started watching wrestling in '94 and stopped around '06 but been watching on and off still yet. I was big into Monday Night Nitro as well and flipped between the channels during the Monday Night Wars. I watched Money In The Bank tonight, it's so disappointing and sad to watch the way things are now compared to how they were in the late '90s during the Attitude Era and early to mid '00s with the Ruthless Aggression Era. Do you keep up with wrestling any today and/or know about the upcoming promotion AEW? If so, what's your thoughts?
