Street Fighter was a great game, but MK will always be my favorite. Looking back, spending so much time playing a game were you can rip your opponents heart out at the age of six is probably why I'm so creepy and voilent now. what ever, it was worth it.

Mortal Kombat was the best thing to hit the Genesis since Sonic! Who was the guy that threw his hat and chpped off peoples' heads?


Kung Lao I believe. Scorpian was my favorite, thats how a Ninja should be! not this Anime crap we see nowadays.

I never really played that one. I always played either Street Fighter, or Mortal Kombat. All the Mario games on the Nentindo were my favorite.

@Indigo Rose:

I never personally had one, but I seen a few. I don't know what all the hype was about. :?

I've seen him on one of the cable news channels a few times over the last couple years, so he's still around.

Ah, the 90's. MTV still played music videos; The Simpsons were in their prime; Disney was premium cable channel; we were introduced to the first Nick Toons (remember what the first 3 were? Doug, Ren & Stimpy & Rugrats.) and pop music was at it's least annoying (until the boy bands started polluting the airwaves.)

And then this wonderful thing called the internet made it super easy for horny teenagers to look at porn. Remember that dial-up song the 28.8 kbps modem would sing as it logged you on?

Yep! Followed by "You've got mail." :lol:

Oh sh*t! Remember that stupid movie "You've got mail" with Meg Ryan?

I hate AOL!

Yes, the '90's. Spent a few years working in a record store, which meant lots of free cd's and marijuana. Grunge started pissing me off after hearing it every day at work. I was glad when it died.

Met my life partner, quit the job at the record store and went to graduate school, then moved to Chicago and got a real job.

It was a busy decade, but fun.

In the U.S. in the '90's, a lot of young people dressed in '70's inspired clothing and listened to '70's funk music. Jam bands started becoming popular. I was living in a college town, so it was especially annoying. Drugs and smoking were much more common than they were in the '80's as well.
I do like Gen X-ers and their values more than the Gen Y and millennial kids. Gen X-ers were smart and cynnical. Gen Y kids are really gullible and process everything on a surface level.

Toys back then were cool.


Yes! Those things were the greatest thing at pool parties for years and years!

These days...they all seem to be Furby-esque interaction things...

*yawn*

Those Furby things were demented, I swear! I use my brother's old one for a target for my handmade bow and arrow. Mine...the white fur was pretty, so I just left it alone and took out the batteries.

Remember those Tamagotchi things? I had one back in first grade...

:|

I remember those tamagotchis! I got one in the summer after second grade. My family and I went to visit relatives and I played with it all the time on the plane and trains ^^;


I never really got into those things...those were so annoying. Why they brought it back (my youngest cousin has one and begs me 24/7 to 'check it out') these days, I can't fathom...

><

Yes, the 90's. Comcast was AT&T, and they had no digital guide. But, somehow, TV was interesting back then. Now, it's just an every day thing.

I f*cking want that guy's hair!!

Anyway, even though I'm the youngest BBS'er, I remember the 90s fairly well. I, like all the other girls my age, was a Spice Girls fan. And I don't care how crappy you think it is, Spice World is a f*cking awesome movie!

Then I drowned my brother's Buzz Lightyear by accident back when Toy Story was cool.

My Tamagotchi died, but that's because you couldn't trust a five year old with a pet, especially a digital one.

Dare I say it, but I was a Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears fangirl! N*Sync pissed me off for reasons yet unknown.

Me and my brothers use to watch wrestling all the time. So that also meant we use to beat the sh*t out of each other.

One of my brothers was obsessed with Backdraft. he recorded it on TV and watched it over and over and over. We had these orange and yellow blackets that he threw on us and would yell, "OMG! JANELL'S ON FIRE!!"

And me and my brothers each had our own favorite channels. Jared's was Nickalodean, Dominick's (crazy fireman) was Cartoon Network, and mines was the Disney Channel. We use to fight all the time over who got to watch what first. Just because it was the end credits didn't mean it was over, dammit!

I suddenly ran out of things to say. but if anyone brings any 90s pop icons up, I'm sure I'll remember it.

I F*CKING LOVED TITANIC!

I doubt it...I might be younger.

Anyways...I was a strange child even then. I was practically raised on Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones by my dad when it came to music, so I never got into the pop bands of the time.

:oops:

Ooooh, Titanic! I loved that movie, too!

I have an idea for our show music next year! Since our show this year was about the 80s...

Memories, Moments, and Music of the 90s. Selections include Wannabe, Walking on the Sun, My Heart Will Go On, a bunch of Weird Al parodies, mostly polka, and other random crap I've failed to remember.

Drum major Janell Parfait is your band ready to take the field?

SHYEAH BABY!!


You know, I was mentioning that at showcase talking about how i use to headbang to the Spice Girls. So to prove how much of a "rocker" I am, I headbanged to Wannabe.

Another fun movie from the decade was "Army of Darkness." Albeit the third Evil Dead film, I liked how it was less splatter and more smart-ass.

The constant zooming the camera did when Ash got his new hand was hilarious.
