A couple of months ago I played some Super Smash Bros. Melee again, and the game keeps track of when you unlock characters and other stuff. And not only does it give you the exact day but also the exact time you did that. Seeing all that 2002-2004 stuff there REALLY gave me a nostalgia hit and made me realise how much time has passed since those days.

And when I booted up SmackDown vs. Raw 2006 on the PS2 last summer or so again and looked at CAWs I made of some of my classmates I had attended HS with it was REALLY strange. Those guys are people I haven't seen since like 11th grade, which was in 2006/2007 already. I don't even have them on FB nor do I have a faint idea of what they're up to nowadays. And we weren't that close of friends anyway. It was pretty much a joke we did. Create each others on SvR 2006 and give each others our favourite moves, attires and entrance themes and battle against each other for fun. Apparently one of the CAWs was holding the US title still and the other the WWE tag titles. What the hell man :lol

What about you?

I can totally identify with making CAWs of your friends. We did the exact same thing when I was younger. About a year or so ago, a couple of friends dusted off our very old Smackdown: Here Comes The Pain. Considering we hadn’t played that game since about 2005, it was really nostalgic to see the versions of ourselves we’d made back then. As we’re in our 30’s now, some of my friends have started to go bald, or get fat. Looking at the younger versions of ourselves was kind of funny. There were some CAWs of people we just don’t see anymore, too: some moved away, some we drifted apart from, one had even passed away. I know exactly what you mean when you talk about the nostalgia these things produce.

I sold off a lot of my old console stuff years ago, unfortunately. Massive mistake.

However, there are things on my steam account, like screen shots, from years ago, that give me a nice heavy dose of nostalgia.
Especially seeing old friends and the classic "2,589 days since ____ was online" dealio on my friendslist.

Certain games in general just give it to me.
The PC version of Halo: Combat Evolved always kills me.
It was the first game that really got me into PC gaming.

I also bought GTA III on Steam a few months ago and it was so jarring.
My friend borrowed it to me when I was in 3rd grade. Lmao... 3RD GRADE!
It's amusing how much you remember from things like that.

friends? hahahaha, if only i could relate to that.

me honestly i never created anything in any SVR game. too much of a long process for me to even bother. last CAW i made was probably when i was 10 and that was on no mercy and that's just because making caws on that was so simple.

but could i actually go back and create anything on that? fuck no, those games didn't age good with me.

its weird to me when I boot up something like sims or hitman and I can get dropped right back into a moment where I saved like 5 years ago.

overall I don't have any really old stuff cause its all gone. Oldest thing I found was a range rover in forza motorsport 3, we made a fleet of them for people in my chemistry class with our miserable bastard of a teacher's initials stamped on the side. That made me kind of sad tbh. Miss those days when you were just out to have fun. Time goes by so quickly, thats got to be about a decade ago now at least.

I do. The oldest save file ive still got as far as I can tell is a Vice City one from 2002.
I no longer have my N64, but I hope my Ocarina of Time, Banjo-Kazooie, F-Zero X, Star Fox 64, DK64, GoldenEye, Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, etc. files and records are still alive in the cartridges. So it's possible I have saves from 1996-2000 still around.

If you thought it was a long process back then, imagine nowadays :lol

Haha yeah. My CAWS never really looked like me even face wise, though. Also, I'm in my late 20s still, but ten years from now on I can imagine how different some people I met a decade ago will look.

Last year, I popped in my old Ocarina of Time cartridge on the N64.

When I saw the save files "FuckFace" and "TheGr8One" I couldn't help but think "yeah, those were the good old days" lol.

LOL you actually named Link FuckFace? The funniest thing I've named a character in a game was naming Gary Oak "Gay" in Pokémon Red back in 4th grade or so. :lol

I've always named Link "Link". He's not a nameless hero like the main character from Dragon Quest or something like that, so it feels pointless for me to name him after me or someone else.

Pokemon games only have one save file slot, so you have to delete your old game to save a new one. I always get attached to my Pokemon and don't want to restart so I end up playing on emulators lol.

But it's fun to fire up my old games and see what teams I had and what I was doing, especially when I nicknamed my Pokemon. I opened up my SoulSilver game to see I had a Mewtwo named Steve in my team that I didn't even remember catching :lmao And why was it called Steve? Was I thinking about Stone Cold when I caught it?

I would do the same with games of Civilization, I'd just load old saves to see my progress, especially in Civ II when you could rename the Civs. One of my save files had a bunch of WWE named civs and cities LOL.

Looking at my original Mass Effect and Dragon Age: Origins saves. :proud

How I wish I could replay those games for the first time. Absolutely epic.

I bought a used PS2 memory card and it had saves from 2002, complete with timestamp. It made me sit down and think of what was going on at that exact moment in the world whilst this kid was busy playing Final Fantasy in his bedroom.

I have had times when I played a game for the first time in YEARS and realize where I am at in the game I am like whoa wtf I remember this and I remember what I was doing even if it was like 10 years. I feel great when I play older games with old save files. Reminds me of a time when shit wasnt hard and life was just full of videogame love.
