Will it continue?

Post by rossi46 » Mon Apr 03, 2006 1:49 pm

..after back to the Eighties has run its course? Will a 'Back to the Nineties' feature start? This section is the first one I turn to when I get each mag, and is easily my favourite.

Dunno why I like it so much. I guess it takes me back to being 15/16 again, starting my first job, having my own money for the first time and wondering what machines I could buy.

20 years later and my money's not mine anymore (mortgage, kids, bikes, cars etc) but I still find myself wondering which machines I can ask my wife for.... :(

I was thinking the same thing today, but realised that by the time the 90's do come around in the mag, the info will be old enough for it to be in Retro Gamer.

And in 15 to 20 years it will be "OMG look at Far Cry's crappy grafx ROFL!"

What's wrong with the 70's?

where do you start?

rubbish games, hair, clothes, colour coordination, cars, tv shows, hardware, electrical goods, shops, porn, no internet - the list is endless :P

Oh God, yes. This is irony at its cruellest. I want the PS3 and the Revolution. I can probably talk her into one, but not both...

You could argue most of that for the 80s as well ;)
