IMO, the absence of these things are what made the 90s a great era in which to grow up. Kids today are completely OWNED by their technology. Noone can do anything without flipping open a laptop, messing with their phone, or playing with their ipod.

In the late 80's where life was lived outdoors. Life was much simpler then before the age of electronics. Playing ball or soccer, climbing trees, catching grasshoppers, building treehouses, those were the days were kids were most creative.

Late '80's, early '90's. Mid-'90's were kinda depressing.

Yeah 90's were indeed great. It was just so much better without all these laptops, iWhatever..

Music was good, cartoons were on their peak. I remember staying up till 2 AM to watch live feed of the NBA game. I remember spending days outdoors playing with pals etc.

Nowadays I barely see any kid outside shootin hoop or playin soccer. They just sit in front ****ty computers and play video games for hours.

Too bad this new generation won't experience what we have.

And yeah, I kinda got the feeling we respected elders more than the kids today.

late 80's, 90's were the best. We got technology (first game consoles, start of internet) but it wasnt overbearing enough to the point I wouldnt want to leave my home or go outside. Nowadays, kids have all sorts of gadgets I couldnt ever have imagined of. Im just glad I had a good fusion of new technology and I still wanted and enjoyed the outdoors

80's were great, if only for chewing on pieces of paper to fit in the small holes at the side of your casettes when you wanted to reecord something or dub them over, and you didnt have any tape around.

Or when your cheap ass walkmen ate your favorite tape. When you HAD to wear baggy jeans to fit in the huge walkman.
