Pretty cringe worthy stuff. It's pretty weird growing up on the internet. My adolecance has been documented on the internet and it's the weirdest thing going back and looking at it. At 14 I don't think anyone I knew even knew what a forum was. And I was astonishingly technically savvy even at that age. Life, that is all.

Haven't you figured it out yet fanboys? Your mommy can't afford both consoles! Be grateful with what you got and shut the Fuck up.

I remember thinking the same thing. Back when I had a DeviantART account, I used to dabble in writing and messing with fractals. Now, seven or so years later, it is kind of odd looking back.

Scary to think that I had my first computer in the mid nineties before I hit ten years old, and I haven't looked back since.

LOL I didn't get my first computer until my Freshman year of college. Dreamcast got me on the internet for the first real time around 2000. HS sucked because everything had to be typed luckily I lived close enough to walk to school so I stayed after all the time.

That explains some things.

I'm in my early twenties and I've actually had the pleasure of literally growing up my entire life with a computer thanks to my dad being a complete nerd. My earliest TV was an old Amiga monitor lol and I've had a personal computer and internet access for probably the last decade.

If you're internet memories don't include dial-up and having to fight with others about who claims the only phone line in the house, then you aint shit!

And I have the reverse effect, I look back at post when I was in my early 20's and feel dumber now in my late 20's.

Yeah it's pretty odd looking at the stuff I posted in my teens. It's still the same person at heart but a lot of little nuances and attitude are different. Like trying to be a little edgy. Not vulgar or disrespectful but trying to poke my horns out a little bit.
That stuff makes me cringe but it's alright. I'm curious how I'll look back at my 20s many years from now haha.

Case in point.

Hey Guys In the past you have called yourselves hardcore gamers because you play allot of video games however my definition of a "Hardcore Gamer" is someone who is a General in halo 3 and who is Gifted at ALL multi player games but all of you suck at multilayer games none of you are even past SGT in halo 3 and you suck at Gears 2 "No Offense" you even admitted to sucking at gears 2 in the past cagcast. So how can you guys call yourself a Hardcore gamer? . Please Answer Me!!!!!


ugh. Like what was possibly going through my mind.

Haven't you figured it out yet fanboys? Your mommy can't afford both consoles! Be grateful with what you got and shut the Fuck up.

When I first got access to the internet, I made my own website about video games. It was on one of the free places like GeoCities or Angelfire and it was designed just like 90% of the websites from that time period... Centered text down the whole page, crappy bullet gifs from clip art websites, a terrible background, and pictures taken from other websites because it took too long to upload my own pictures on dial-up. Those were the days :lol:.

I remember when I was 14 I used to go into aol chatrooms and get girls so easy. And when you met up with them, they were actually girls! Good times. Shit, that was 14 years ago!

Remember looking at porn? Just pictures. How the hell did I even manage back then..

See, now, I had the opposite experience. I was one of the very first people in my HS who turned in essays that were printed by a computer. And I had to get special permission when I did so - the teachers had it in their minds that that was somehow cheating.

As for the posts that were reported/deleted and ended up getting some people temp banned - I have to say they did have a point or two. OP needs to chill. 18 or 21 or whatever is not all that different from 14 or 16. You'll be saying the same things at 25 and 30 and 40 about your previous self ;).

Just Pictures? What kind of a fucked up world is that? I never even needed mags or DVD's growing up.

I am not and wasn't even denying that to an extent. That was not what he was trying to get at, something much more hateful because he differs with me. Certain broader ideological things I.E vs. discussions will never change. All I was getting at.

Ah, but those will change too - I think that was the point. But I don't want to dredge that back up again so we can leave it be.

Someday you'll look back at your post from when you were 14 and say something similar.  Sadly a lot of the stuff I posted when I was your age is long gone and lost to the winds of time.  Some of it is probably on archive.org but there's no way for me to search for the URL it existed on and I've long forgotten.

Man, I was looking at my own profile here today and realized I've been on this forum for EIGHT YEARS.  Jesus I'm old.

I woukd have to look for old IRC logs to find stupid stuff from when I was 12, but I do remember when I first got unreal tournament for the pc. It was my first online shooter (had played c&c and, warcraft online before though). I spent the whole night playing against bots thinking they were people online.
