The Reality That The Symbol Makers Now Control us, our perceptions of experience. A castle as a plaything no longer exist for most adults. It now symbolizes work, debt ownership, mortgage, responsibility.
What if this symbol of our time as being 90's kids is really something more significant? Something designed to appease children to play with it for a short period of time before being placed into the corner of a room. For some reason it's the toy that me and my friends would play with at their houses and at my house with lego men and so on.
It's fascinating to me that we come from this bizarre time in culture where suddenly the market was flooded with such an iconic array of products and as a transition from a space age society to the information age society having computers come in resulted in a complete alienation of older generations. It stands out to me how kids these days don't have this transition and their parents have iphones, not a hesitation to push a button.
it is fascinating
we're really fortunate to have the 80s and 90s to ground us - especially if you're parent
If you didn't had that castle as a kid your parents LITERALLY didn't love you
Remember having to fuck around with this...
That's a piece of gear I haven't seen in a while.
Because you remember an easier, simpler, better time.
That looks familiar but I can't remember what it's for.
So that's what those plastic things were for
I'm 45 and I remember some of these.
There must be some true oldfags here, because the average 4chan user these days is about 16, and would have no idea what life was before the internet.

The good ol' days
Nostalgia to me is just remembering what it felt like to see something new for the first time. As you grow up you experience things new and it felt good like as a kid the world was huge and exciting. Now that you've seen everything there is to see you don't feel that anymore. But when you hear that song or see that image from your past that feeling of awe was recorded in your memory too, i think that's what nostalgia is but I'm no bill nye
My first exposure to the Internet was through Prodigy in the early 1990s.
It was a computer system we weren't meant to understand (apart from learning hints for those graphic adventure computer games).
Today's kids have no idea just how much life has changed though these incredible advances in technology.
They should remake this with more relevant future factions. SJW's/Islamists/BLM/Bronies etc
I think nostalgia threads are my favorite. It's like we emerge from the shadows of b to discuss the shit we grew up with. I find it hard to believe that our generation is responsible for all the uninteresting, repetitive, not funny shit that gets posted 24(7
what a way to fuck up a fun game.
probably you still have imagination and want to play with it but would consider it weird if someone finds out.
I honestly would like to play with my GI Joes but if people found out they would go this guy has gone totally insane, or something like he finally lost it.
Fucking sucks that we can't use those things on consoles since the ps3
This one had a tiny hole in the bottom for some reason. I found out that you could put it in the bathtub (closed) and it would float but gradually fill and sink in 2 minutes. This made it even more awesome to me.
People say that because no one wants to be part of a shit generation...but honestly...you think that some 40 year old fucker is in the same generation as a 16 old today. You agree with that.
Fuck those indoor playgrounds.
Kids are too spoiled, and their parents are rotten.
Go play outside and scorch your ass on a hot metal slide in the middle of the summer.
dude im 28. i no longer feel nostalgia, love, excitement, or any sense of wonder really. ive been contemplating suicide for a while because of it. enjoy your nostalgia while you still have it
I used to have 12 of these things and still don't know what they're called
>A castle as a plaything no longer exist for most adults. It now symbolizes work, debt ownership, mortgage, responsibility.
Speak for yourself faggot. I went to pic related last year and drank wine while pretending I was a fucking knight before a siege.
People who went to school in the 70s and early 80s will remember these and the smell of the paper when they were fresh off the ditto machine.
Yes. Never grow old. Not really.
Pretending's the best
It helped with "natural selection". Stupid people wouldn't be able to spread their stupid gene, until the politicians suddenly started protecting everybody with all of this safety bullshit.
It was the beginning of the end. The pussification of America.
>Pretending's the best
fuck yeah do similar stuff whenever i go camping.
Are you one of those people who refuse to recognise anything from 2000:s being nostalgic?
I know this may shake your wrinkles but I'm nostalgic for the ps2 and I'm 21 years old.
i had this and virtual boy in the mid 90's
indy 3 was one of the harder lucasarts p&c games. I wished they had turned The Fate of Atlantis into the 4th movie. would've been a trillion times better than what we got...
>inb4 edgelord or something
Please tell me I'm not the only person who played this.
>Thus began Anon's hatred of black women
There is nothing fudge nor chocolate about that thing ...
I cannot believe how shit and barely playable LCD games were in hindsight
fuck I've been trying to remember what those were called for years, thank you.
Appropriate dubs for an awesome little "movie". Had that on VHS back in the day. To think this was top of the line computer graphics at one point.
There's something sort of charming about pre-2000's era rendered animation like this to me.
I went to a party once. Parties are overrated.
Well, those two groups are not as distant as you think.
I grow up seeing both 70s, 80s and 90s shows, and same with music.
it's the 2000 generation the one that has lost contact with the past.
no they didn't. 35 year old teacher here. I'm actually quite amazed how much most of the ppl in early 20s enjoy old shit. being it vidagames, music or movies. it's the kids between 12 and 18 who are still more attached to what is new, but that's explainable with their actual phase of age. (sorry, not a native speaker here, but I guess you understand what I mean)
does make sense. at that age I started to become a weirdo as well. and here we are as grown up man, posting on an anime imageboard
that pic ain't TFOA though dude. it's indy3
Same here. It's nice to know someone else watched this besides my dad, brother and I. Reboot was one of my favorite shows as a kid. That and beast wars/machines. Nowadays 3d animation is so cheap and good looking it makes me sad we can't go back to when cgi actually meant something.
