Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The [Nostalgia Thread] - In Which 80s/90s Animuus Are Discussed
So I was sitting in an auditorium today, waiting to hear some orchestral music, and I noticed this eight-year-old kid sitting in the row in front of me.
And I was just idly listening to my iPod prior to the show, and a few tracks from the first Pokemon album started playing on my iPod.
Suddenly, I realized that the kid sitting in front of me was about the same age I was when I first got the CD version of the Pokemon album, which has since been lost to the sands of time.
It also occurred to me that if I asked him to listen to a couple of tracks, he'd start asking me about Dawn and Max, instead of Misty and Brock... Or maybe even a few of the characters from the Bakugan anime.
And this made me feel like kind of an old dude.
SE++, what recent experiences made you realize that shit that was popular when you were a kid is no longer quite as popular?
