So, you think it's all about games?

FUCKING WRONG. That's at the bottom of the list.

Lemme count the reasons...

1. The fact that PLENTY OF SHIT WAS UPBEAT. Evident in commercials, TV shows, movies, etc.

Much less "FOX 5! WE'LL SCARE THE SHIT OUT OF YOU!" corporate crap.

2. Music? Oh yeah! It existed back then! Faith No More, Nirvana, Pantera, etc.

Talent lacking by "FATTY SPEARS" or "J-LO."

3. The Internet was a virgin, and occupied by smart people up until post-1996 or so.

4. Clothing? Oh yeah! Much less of it was blatant advertising bullshit. Patterned tees ROCK COCKS!

5. LIBERAL IDEAS!

6. Lawuits were much less prevalent. Common, but not compared to today's "SOCCER MOM" standards.

7. Congress was even more laughable with Lieberman's and Brownback's "Assualt against Violent Games/Media" which was based upon entirely made up facts. Oh, and "Media Effects" research from the 1920's.

I miss laughing at the bullshit fair after Columbine.

8. You actually needed an I.Q. above 3 to use a computer.

9. You needed a 120 I.Q. or higher to use the Internet, up until AOL's web browser for AOL 3.0 came out.

10. Ads used to be funny? Shit! That's amazing!

They weren't based on fear? WOW!

Sega's ads rocked the socks off any proceeding campaign, besides 7-Up's. Oh wait, that was post '99. My bad, carry on.

I remember other ads that made me piss my pants, but I forgot what they were or what they were for.

11. You could buy something made in a non-Commie country, and it would last 20 years, not 20 days.

Case in point: CD Players. Oh yeah, and desks too! They were built out of better particle board!

12. An economic boom!

13. 3Dfx Voodoo. Word.

14. The Y2K "bug" - What a riot!

15. Beavis and Butthead.

16. Good Simpsons Episodes.

17. Fantom Vacuum Cleaners. Aboslutely the best. Every bagless vacuum you see was an innovation by Fantom. Oh, and modern uprights with attachment mounts also copied Fantom's innovation.

You used to be able to pick up shit like pennies, peanuts, screws, dead mice, and other objects with a $200 vacuum.

Want to do that now? $400 for a Dyson!

I miss not having to sweep up shit before I vacuumed my shithole.

18. Laptops and calculators that WORKED. You know, they lasted for more than two months before something was damaged. Presarios are excluded from this.

19. Dude, like you can have 16-Bit sound on your PC? WORD.

And MIDI music? WHOA! I mean like, that's the awesomest thing ever!

20. THE GAMES.

There are more, but they aren't coming to me now.

So please, go and fuck yourself!

EDIT: I forgot this:

Fuck off Descent :thumbsup: the 90's were just a rehash of the 60's, 70's and 80's. There was nothing orginal about 90's.

Yeah, we did. We had an IBM PC until Dec 1995, when we got a Dell Dimension P75t.

No, Descent, you got it all wrong... You're supposed to count the things that DID NOT suck about the 90s. Shorter list.

1.) Super Nintendo
2.) Genesis
3.) Command and Conquer: Red Alert (???)

Yeah... It's all about the 'classic' video games in the 90s... That's about it. TV Shows blew in the 90s, with few exemptions, and don't get me fucking started on the music. I'm gonna be hated for this, but after Nirvana (and because of Nirvana), the music industry was doomed to an industry full of whiny teens singing pop and grunge garbage. Nirvana ruined music, They destroyed the art of music, they killed the solo, and others opened the hole for the festering ball of crap that is pop-music to snowball from it's not-so-much-pop 80s.

Oh, one more thing that was good about the 90s, just to be fair...

Before chips came in 99 cent 'big grabs' and became more expensive, when they said that 1 in 3 bags would win, they actually meant 1/2! Not 1 in 100 like it is today.

Jesus, I can't remember how many dayd during the summer when I found myself just going back and forth to the nearest corner store after repeatedly winning 'A Free Bag of Chips!!!' and I would always effectively get more than if I just bought a big grab...

Fuck, winning free bags of chips owned back then... Companies weren't so absolutely tight over money.

Reasons the 90's sucked:

1. Oaklahoma City bombing
2. First WTC attack.
3. Just as many dumbass fucktart commercials on TV as there are now.
4. Just as many dumbass fucktart TV shows on as there are now.
5. Laptops that weighed a fucking god damn ton.
6. The war in Bosnia
7. The war on drugs was recognized as a failure
8. All of the shit the Clinton presidency gave us including "the definition of is"
9. Pokemon
10. All the blatant advertisements on clothing (Bana Republic, Levi's, Lucky's, Swatch, Body Glove etc....)
11. Al the insane media coverage of Princess Di's death.
12. The first Gulf War


Etc. etc.

You like the 90's because you were young and didn't have to face reality. The commercials weren't funnier then, you were just more easily entertained. Then life got harder and you miss the old days.

I love the 90's based on the fact that I was a young carefree adorable child, considered intelligent by that decades standards.

Look at me now, a pimple scarred idiot who has an inexplicable love for hobo's. The 90's to me was my brother punching me in the face everytime I lost horribly at Super Mario World. Good times, good times.

Hey is the same guy who had that avatar with some guy with OpenGL written on his head. What happened to you? I use to read your posts and they actually had some intellect, made sense before, and you talked about other stuff besides computers and the 90's. :confuse:
