I remember when/nostalgia thread

This thread is for old cunts to talk about things they remember that were better and that.

I remember when console gaming meant you didn't have to install anything.

I remember when chocolate came in foil and paper.

That kind of thing, pricks.

50p on the pick and mix almost guaranteed you could make yourself feel sick when I was a kid. My local shop also did a £1 random selection bag thing and that was a summer holiday thing when you'd get it in the morning on the way to play football for 8 hours straight down the park.

I remember when you could pass the time with a game of curby

I remember when Star Burst were Opal Fruits

I remember when the bus was 60p return

I remember when it was ok that your clothes were abit big for you, because you'd eventually grow into them

I remember when before playing a computer game you had to wait for a tape to play whilst watching the pretty colours on the TV and the beeping noises at the same time as fannying around with a screwdriver in the top of the tape machine (was that just mine?) - then right at the end get a message: TAPE LOADING ERROR

I'll gladly take a 5 minute download on the ps3 whilst I go and make a brew.

Music was something you either saved up a lot of money to own, or more likely you were given a tape casette copy. And an album used to be something you'd really listen to back then. When I mean listen to, I mean every day after school, alone in your room, played a few times through till the tape needed to be tightened/loosened. Serious business.
