    Also, DirectX 5.0…

    You have Windows Vista and still haven't signed up for The Internet? Get with the times.

  4. Farnham on April 29th, 2012 2:07 am

    Is it sad that I know the difference between regular and spawn..? Also that I have a copy of DirectX 5.0 stashed away in an IT folder along with each major release after..? If not that, then that I played the game enough to memorize each quest, analyze the randomization engine, and even remember exactly what it's like to hear Griswald say "SKINNY LITTLE SKELETONS" even though it's been years..? I need help…

    Back then they had no idea what would happen with the internet. If only they knew….

    Suddenly… MEMES !

    Back then: Oh boy! I can't wait to go on this "The Internet" and meet many wonderful fellows that will be gentle and open to many different strategic planning on everyone's end and be happy with everyone as a whole collective!

    Today: Oh man, I can't wait to be a useless piece of shit and play online videogames all day.
    …my mom is a what? Is that even an insult?

    Goddamn, I feel so old, and I'm not even 25!

  9. Marzen on April 29th, 2012 2:17 am

    Hey, that looks like Mirrodin from Magic the Gathering!

    ……….I am a fucking nerd.

  10. Marzen on April 29th, 2012 2:18 am

    Oh? That's old? Heh.

    1996, a time when games were hard. What's that, regenerating shields? No you get a bar. And you better PRAY that bar doesn't go empty. What's that? Only 1 health point was lost? Well, too bad, you touched the medpac.
    And no, you don't get an infinite supply of hats.

  12. LitmusRemnantal on April 29th, 2012 2:21 am

    Dem graphics.

    Sign up for the internet? Nah, that's silly. It's only a fad! I'm going to get started on the next thing:

    Chewing on skunks!

  14. SirBlitz on April 29th, 2012 3:41 am

    I don't think any of us really knew what we were getting ourselves into when we signed-up for The Internet.

    As a juggler, I understand and laugh at this joke.

    Fun fact:
    In a limited number of copies of Diablo came this instructional video on how to use the newly founded "World Wide Web"
    This service was curtailed after it was proven to be ….insufficient

    Oh, you think THAT's old?

    How many of you here grew up with the older episodes of the Fairly Odd Parents?

    Yeah well too bad. The virtual reality helmets episode was 11 years ago. And you can't answer what many things you were doing in those past years off the top of your head.

    ive been playing diablo today, just finished the chamber of bone quest

  23. Rexxmech on April 29th, 2012 11:35 am

    Ah, the internet, it takes me back…

    Why does everything takes so long to load… WHY!?
    oh, you need to use the phone mom, ok i'll get off.

    Possibly the worst nostalgia I've ever had.

  27. LinkorZelda on April 29th, 2012 3:18 pm

    Back in my day that there internet was used to connect military think tanks!

  28. TheInsaneWombat on April 29th, 2012 5:01 pm

    What is this "Diablo" you speak of? Is it a shitty ripoff of Diablo III?

  29. Prof. Luigi on April 29th, 2012 11:10 pm

    I have a sudden urge to dust off my Baldur's gate Disks. not sure why.

  33. AlparTheGreen on April 30th, 2012 12:22 pm

    Ahh, The Internet. Youngsters nowadays don't show it due respect *shakes cane*

  34. Hareoic on April 30th, 2012 8:34 pm

    Back in my day, we called it COMPUSERVE. And we didn't have this fancy-pantsy Windows interface nonsense.
