Revisiting something old in the midst of something new.

Post by gamer2 » Sun Feb 24, 2008 1:32 pm

Lately, I have been wanting to go back and revisit things that I had or Mmy family had when I was little. I have been playing NES emulators more often than my roomates Wii or PS3. He also has blu-ray but I have been wanting to go back and revisit a format that we had when I was younger.

CED

I sometimes find myself looking on ebay for a player and some movies just to recapture what I had when I was little that my parents sold.

Does this seem odd?

It's called 'nostalgia', nearly everyone gets it.

Every once and awhile. I crave a little nostalgia too. So it's a normal thing to do dude.

Who knows if the Namco Portable will ever become a reality? :P

Nostalgia doesn't suck it's a great thing i get it now and then

I turned my huge nostalgia of me playing my commodore 64 when i was little into a great time.

I got commodore 64 projected onto the house and playing it with my cousin (we use to be c64 nuts) and it's grown into a regular thing now we have a few drinks and play some boulderdash or the great giana sisters etc.

It's quite common it's why retro gaming and mostly anything retro has become cool these past few years everyone is getting more active with there nostalgia instead of going thoese where the times :wink:

Probably the reason I bought a FC Twin, and recently Chrono Cross. I still can't past that bastard Hydra, but I'm trying!

That's exactly what I do.

A few months ago I went on a binge of TMNT cartoons and Batman: The Animated Series.

I also have an idea for a project. A CED/Laserdisc combo unit.

Thats a pretty cool idea. The only time I bother with nostalgia is emulation, I don't have money to spend on classic consoles and games sadly.

My first memory is actually beating Eggman on the first level of Sonic the Hedgehog. I was born In 1995, that's as nostalgic as I get. BUT I played our old NES more than our genesis.
