Nostalgic Gamers Recall Their Earliest Gaming Memories

Most of the time, the only 'engagement' that brand accounts manage to inspire is severe eye-rolling. But once in a while, the gold replies to a brand's engagement bait make the cringe worth it. @Xbox's simple, straightforward prompt incited a wholesome and funny thread filled with gamers gleefully accepting the journey to Nostalgia Town.

The answer to such a question immediately dates the person responding, which makes the thread feel like a wild, randomized timeline. One thing is for sure—if someone were to make a Venn diagram of the past few generations, gaming would be dead center. Keep scrolling for a trip down memory lane.

Nostalgic Twitter Users Reminisce About The Perks & Pitfalls Of Their Parents Jobs

As the world mostly seems to be falling apart, it's really clutch that we enjoy (and fully appreciate) any positivity we can get our proverbial hands on. Sometimes the good vibes come in the form of wholesome memes, or happy human interest stories. Today, that goodness is coming to you in the form of a nostalgic Twitter thread. A few days ago, Twitter user @causalinf asked his followers to share the perks they enjoyed as children thanks to their parents careers. The thread really brought us back to simpler times, when going to work actually seemed fun from the outside. While the stories are mostly positive, a few people decided to share some of their less than happy memories. This keeps the thread a bit more realistic, as not everyone had an idyllic childhood with gainfully employed parents. At the end of the day, though, it's nice to look back fondly on days when drawing on computer paper and getting spoiled by a workplace of adults was a real treat.

'Vintage' Video Game Ads For A Dose Of Nostalgia

A long, long time ago, gamers and tech aficionados used to receive more circulars than promotional emails. A once-per-week delivery of the latest deals is definitely preferable to incessant marketing ploys and clickbaity subjects. They also doubled as lining for a pet's crate or cage. While we no longer have the satisfaction of flipping through a vibrant catalog of Gameboy deals, we're pleased that there are kind souls on the internet who are passionate about taking us down memory lane. These clips of circulars are sure to stoke a great deal of nostalgia with millennial and Gen X gamers. They may even leave you craving a game of Tetris. Win/win.

New White Claw Drink Triggers Hilarious Four Loko Nostalgia

White Claw is getting a boozy makeover with its newest hard seltzer 'Surge' and the news has many reminiscing about the original Four Loko, notorious for its chaotic recipe consisting of taurine, guarana, caffeine and at one point, wormwood. The caffeinated iteration of the fabled 'premium malt beverage' was discontinued in 2010 after a series of Four Loko related deaths and accidents, but that hasn't stopped Twitter from expressing tongue-in-cheek nostalgia for those Loko nights of yore. Many are drawing comparisons between the infamous malt beverage and White Claw, which has even roused some hot takes from the Four Loko Twitter account. Whether you've got a taste for the sauce or you're a curious tea totaler, the fact that beverage news has triggered such an impassioned response is pretty amusing in itself.

30 Nostalgic Memes Only Some People Will Get

As an aging millennial it's easy to find myself yearning for simpler times. While yes, dial-up was technically the internet, it was very hard to find yourself glued to a screen for 14 hours of the day. New music was something you read about in a magazine or stumbled upon at a brick and mortar record store. Blockbuster was thriving. We could wax nostalgic for days (what is a day, even?) but we'll save our breath and let these memes take you down memory lane instead.
