One thing I do miss about the 90's or even early 2000 was that people were more required to understand how their computers worked, or how to deal with problems to a degree, what with using DOS, and as much nostalgia as I have for old OS's they weren't perfect and you had to figure annoying shit out. Nowadays it feels like no one knows how a computer actually works and get one to check their Facebook. Everything revolves around fucking social media shit and it drives me crazy.
>New generations are complete retards
Doesn't every generation think the new one is retarded, though? However I would be lying if I said I didn't think the new generation isn't retarded. I guess we'll just continue to grow more retarded with each new gen.

>Doesn't every generation think the new one is retarded, though?

People think this way because they have conveniently forgotten being retarded when they were young. When you've learned a lot more life lessons than another person, they're going to seem stupid to you, especially if they don't take your advice. Chances are very high that you have been the stupid kid who wouldn't take someone else's common sense advice at some point in your life… that's just what happens as one generation ages and another rises up after them

kids these days are shitty little assholes just like they were when I was a kid. Western society is more fucked up in some ways and less in others. I can't really say things are better or worse overall, I can think of too many examples of each.

I tend to lean towards "worse" but I guess it depends

though if we're talking strictly about media, then yeah, probably worse overall.

Your retarded is showing. If you ever watched 90's anime when it was still current, you probably suffered through a lot of trite stinkbombs like Kimera and Burn-Up, on the slim hope that they might be as good as Serial Experiments Lain or Battle Angel Alita. Just because you torrented some Yu Yu Hakusho blurays doesn't mean you have any fucking clue what it was like to be an anime fan in the 90's.

>for every dancing WII game there for fags are 1000 ultra realistic atmosphereless generic fps

FPS has always been, and still remains, the genre where the most technological innovation happens. Doom's design philosophy has had far-reaching influences in the entire MEDIUM of video games, not just its own genre, and games like Half-Life and Bioshock continue the trend. Oh, and nice homophobia. You're a textbook case for Asperger's.

>all of them were kids with the 2000 combo Bush/Obama legal terrorism (but now with steroids)

Can you say that again, in English?

>implying modern anime is moeshit

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Berserk movie, Higurashi, Psycho-Pass, fucking KAIJI. You're a git, mate. And of course I realize the 90's had good shows too, but you people have to realize (are you listening, >>2193?), those shows were uncommonly good. Just like Kaiji is uncommonly good for 201X, Evangelion was uncommonly good for the 90's. The sheer VOLUME of anime produced in any given decade is so great, you can't possibly expect all (or even half) of it to be good. Remembering only the stuff you liked about a decade and forgetting all the bad stuff is the definition of nostalgia.

I'm not saying the 00's were better than the 90's, I'm just saying they're not worse. If this thread had started with "fuck the 10's, 00's were better" do you think we wouldn't be having this same exact discussion?

>best of the 90's is better than best of the 00's

Still say they're about equal. If I had to make a top ten list of all-time favorite anime, I think the 80's, 90's, and 00's would all be equally represented.

>Anime was better than the modern moeshit

Not necessarily. I think a lot of modern anime is easier to watch and there's more diversity now. There's simply more out there, so the shit is more noticeable.

>Music had musicians and not mercenaries


There's still plenty of great music out there, it's just that the mainstream focus is on all the wrong things.

>Kids played the BEST videogames unlike the shit nowdays


I would debate that. A lot of oldschool games aren't as good as you remember, and the early 90s still figured into the NES era which was full of shovelware and artificially difficult games. A lot of 2D games are bland and repetitive, and even modern 2D games like the ones for the DS, or indie titles like Cave Story and Bastion seem to have more depth to them. There are still some great games being made, and games overall have advanced not just in terms of graphics but in terms of gameplay.

The real issue is that games didn't develop much past the release of Half Life 2 or so, not the 90s. The PS2 had some truly great titles and was probably largely responsible, with games like Ico, Shadow of the Colossus etc. for video games being taken more seriously as an art form. Not to mention the Dreamcast, which for those outside Japan was more of a 2000s thing than a 90s thing. Shenmue II, Sonic Adventure 2, etc. quite a few iconic titles there.

PC gaming brought us the likes of Morrowind which set all kinds of new standards.

Even then I enjoyed quite a lot of 360 titles.

I would say the golden era of games was from 1993(release of Doom) to 2004(release of Half Life 2). I would even extend it to early 360 to an extent.

>Economy was stable


Largely due to being built on bubbles that have now popped.

>I WAS YOUNG


That's more of a personal thing. Being young for some people can be depressing.

>OSs were developed with responsability


Honestly, there are a lot of creature comforts in modern versions of Windows you wouldn't want to give up. I don't find Windows 7 to be all that buggy either.

>our politicians werent so FUCKED UP


Things are a bit more crazy now but a lot of the same attitudes still exists. Not to mention in terms of politics, you didn't have as much in the way of LGBT rights and if I was on HRT in the 90s I'd probably be given pregnant mare urine. Ew.

>New generations are complete retards


Smarter in some ways, dumber than others. IQs have been increasing somewhat. But there's a lot of toxic attitudes largely due to the influence of the internet in it's relative infancy and other factors. It does need to be looked at, but every generation says this about the generation that comes after(or before) them. It's hard to knnow right now.

In all honesty, I'd rather be living my life in the 90s than now since there was a more positive feel, but I'd still look forward to various things in the 2000s as well, now that I'd know what to look for.
