I was born in the late 80s, grewing up in the 90s.

I am part of the last generation that played on the streets, also I am part of the first generation that played Video games.

It is the last generation who would record songs from the radio on an audio-cassette, we were pioneers of the walkman-times.

We learned how to use an Video-recorder, we played with Super Nintendo, Game Boy, Sega Genesis and Nintendo 64.

We are the generation of the Ninja Turtles, He-Man, Kickers, The Batman Animated Series, Duck Tales and many more.

We lived in the time when Pokemon and Digimon were on their first seasons, when they were still good. Back then there only were 151 Pokemon and we knew them all by name. It was the golden time of Dragon Ball.

We DID NOT have a CELLPHONE!!!! Unbelievable, huh?

We rode our bikes in the summers for miles and miles because our mommy would not drive us everywhere.

We did not have 200 TV-Channels, Flatscreens, MP3, IPod or IPhone. We did not have INTERNET at all. Yup, that means also no Facebook and no Twitter.

A kid from today who might read this will probably think: "Man, they had a ****** time back then." But let me tell you this good kid: "WE HAD A GREAT TIME!"

I would easily go back to that time if I only could.

Post here if you approve.
 
I too am a child of the 90s. Not sure what you're getting at but I approve that you're getting at it!
 
You can't forget that we listened to grunge music while wearing flannel shirts and being sad.
 
Heck ya! The 90's rocked!

But today's pretty cool too.
 
Anyone ever want to see The Jungle Movie get made? It's sort of like a Samurai Jack thing never being done.
 
I saw this on facebook earlier. It's hard to believe how much has changed in the last twelve years.
 
I too am an 90's kid,I sure miss it and especially since I'm just nostalgic about everything,Damn I wish I had a Delorean Time-Machine!!
 
90s animated TV shows are far superior to the drivel I occasionally see advertised nowadays.
 
You're not part of the first generation that played video games. What, you never heard of the Atari 2600 or Pac-Man?
 
I also grew up in the 90s but we weren't the first to play video games...

Beat me to it.

He-Man is not yours, either. Nor is the Walkman.

And, yes, you did have internet. I graduated in '94 and we had it.

I also love how he fawns over the "first great season of Pokemon." That crap was never good.

Plus my mom had a cell phone in the 80's. Sure it looked like a brick and had half an hour of battery life, but still.

More accurate thing to say would be NO smart-phones.
 
My problem with this post is it seems he mashed stuff as late as 1999 with stuff as early as 1980. It's a hodge-podge of prefab nostalgia... A rose-colored view of a world that never really existed.

Except to those of us who were born in the mid 70s. In that case, we thoroughly enjoyed everything from 1980-1999.
 
You forgot Power Rangers.

Even though the yellow ranger was totally a Japanese dude and the monsters and bad guys were horribly dubbed over to English...it was awesome.

Yellow ranger was a chick and she was killed in a car accident. :dry:
 
Cellphones existed, BUT the games we had were snake. Now? You can play Max Payne on your phone! Back then it was amazing to have a cell phone as a kid. Today? Every kid has one. So, yeah, cell technology was huge. I'm upper middle class and in the final years of middle school getting a cell phone was beyond cool! Today? It's nothing to kids lol. So yeah, cell phones have changed a lot.

We went from floppy disk to cd as well for the computer. And movies from vhs to dvd to blu ray. There was no video on demand, you had to drive to blockbuster.

We are the true rebels of downloading. We are the heart behind napster and downloading. We led to i tunes, if it wasn't for us? Would have took a while. Unsure how late this is, but we went to torrents after napster ended which eventually led to streaming sites.

We were the x-files kids raised in a time of the simpson's golden years and tgfi also meant a tv marathon on abc. We are the kids who will still tell you how awesome goldeneye 64 was. We were of the age where superhero movies we seen as children's fare and x-men and blade revolutionized eveeverything

Absolutely approved! Fortunately my husband & I have so many dvds of our childhood cartoons for our son (who can't appreciate them yet at 4 months old). We have at least one season of:
Fraggle Rock
Batman the Animated Series
Duck Tales
Chip 'N' Dale Rescue Rangers
Darkwing Duck
X-Men
& some I can't remember. There are so many more on Netflix too! I don't want my kid to be a tv addict but I do want him to watch the good stuff when he does! ...I get way too excited about this.

Not in the fight scenes. Those were all shot in Japan and the Japanese version had a dude as the yellow ranger. You never wondered why the yellow ranger had no boobs?

Trini was made up here in good ole Amurca.
