Oh me God! You joined ShiaChat when it was that horrendous blunder of a mess? And, you stuck around? Goodness me! That be the craziest thing everrrrr!

 

Ah, bro, yes, I predate SC the forum. As to the emboldened bit above, I have absolutely no doubt about that :blush:

I've been reviewing some of these pages, and have a question:

 

Doesn't anyone play cards anymore?  Or board games?

I don't have fond memories of board games; my sister used to beat me up if I won. I was stubborn enough that I tried to win anyway. She always won Monopoly because she cheated by slipping extra bills from the bank, but I often beat her at Trivial Pursuit. (I've always been an encyclopedia of useless facts.)

Maybe I should get over it and teach my kids some games.

My older sister was a cheat, too. Even at crochet.

Me, when in grade school, when I realized I had no chance of winning, to use adult idiom, I would experiment with new strategies and continue playing.

 

What I do look back on and see where games are inadequate, they most all reduce to "stimulus-response" and have no multi-variant options.

 

Like Monopoly which l liked; Random decision by dice; buy-or-pay-or draw card-or go to jail. But there are no variables.

For pwwnd123 and those who are following this topic, the Sega commercial was removed. Problems with that 1999 video: the female spy has too tight clothing and no headscarf, she injures [fatally?] the night security guard, airline radar is hacked causing airplane to crash into a tall building (reminiscent of the 9/11 tragedy), theft of motorcycle, car crash and images of violence, and spilling of perfectly good coffee. The final scene of a blonde girl flirting with NFL player Randy Moss was absolutely off-topic for a Sega commercial. ;)

The best nostalgic time, I guess is when we were kids. All we "had" to do was: show-up for meals, show-up for school, 'come-in' on time, and stay-out-of-Mom's-way.

^ Which means you were a boy. When my brothers ran outside to play, I had to wash the dishes, sweep the floor, mop the floor, etc. My mother was my best friend. She took me shopping to buy groceries. :)

Oh man I missed a sega commercial?

Dang it...

Dear brother pwwnd:

To answer your question, no, I do not consider that ad to be nostalgic.

Firstly, because I never saw it until you posted it here.

Secondly, because Super Mario Sunshie is from, like, two years ago. Or something. It's really new, is what I'm saying.

This ad, however, is nostalgic for me (and I am sure you will appreciate it):

That is because your mother knew you had to be trained to be a good mother.  ;)

When I was at university we used IBM PCs running MS DOS. A friend discovered Macs in the geography department and that's when I first started to use them and never went back to DOS or windows. This is the very room with the very same Macs. ;) Photo was taken during a visit by Princess Anne (I am not in it).

When youtube was in its infancy I would often stay up all night playing computer games and listening to this:

Ah, here is another piece of my nostalgia:

 

Network_Q_RAC_Rally_Championship.jpg

 

 

Network Q RAC Rally Championship

 

My father had this game (he might have gotten it in Saudi Arabia or India) and this is one of the first games I played. I used to play it on one of my old PCs that were running Windows 98.

 

Anyone find this to be nostalgic?

Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? was a video game where you help Interpol catch a criminal, while learning geography. :)

Lol@Carmen Sandiego xD!

Can't recall my first videogame but I know that one. I think the first videogame I pkayed had to be one from the Atari, one of those many videogames added in a pack or collection of games. It is impressive to look back at how everything was. This industry grows so fast, things change so quickly.

Years ago there was a drawing class on educational tv. Commander Mark drew ufo's and stuff in the Secret City show. :)
