This is a board for the vidya, toys, games, food, and memories that keep us young at heart (and mind)

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

This is another thing I found on YouTube. I'm not really nostalgic for the track playing, but just the sights in this video radiate that nostalgic energy that I don't know how to describe…

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…
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhKgFjJIZzU
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.

It also holds a special meaning on top of it all as well. I played it alongside my very first crush which was a girl who worked at the bookstore at the mall where the arcade was. She grabbed my hand and dragged me to the arcade when I told her I had never played DDR yet. I wasn't really nervous about the music part in public. I was more nervous of being really bad at the game in front of people. I ended up getting pretty good and played a lot during the 2000s until my health started to get worse and I became really out of shape. By then I had to travel quite some distance to get to the closest DDR cabinet as arcades completely left my area.

I last played Aura Kingdom and returned to RuneScape with OSRS. I lost my Aura Kingdom account due to inactivity, which it was pretty much a dead game and I quit playing. Then OSRS I lost my account for reasons I still don't understand and lost A LOT of GP and time that I put into the game. Anyone here who has played RuneScape knows how much of a grindfest it really is and how much time you can accumulate without realizing. I'd love to find another MMO to capture me, but I don't think that's going to happen. I've been reverting back more and more to older games. I do enjoy getting on Fightcade and doing Netplay whenever that's possible though. I know it's been forever since both of our posts. But I'm going to check out that link and listen to a bit of that album.

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.

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.

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
I really wish Yugioh would have been marketed more towards an older teen demographic in the West as it slightly was in Japan.

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.

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.
