What made the 90s so great in terms of technology?

is it truly rose colored glasses or were computers/internet socially superior to what we have now?

Im surprised /g/ doesnt have more nostalgia threads in place of the fucking same battlestations/desktop threads with the same shit that gets repeated to death.


>then i remember the majority of /g/ was born in the 90s and too young to have experienced the golden age of computing.

>there will never be another ZONE.com

im honestly surprised no one has even attempted to recreate Gamespy arcade, Heat.net, Zone, or Mplayer.

you would think given the success, and the demand for some easy way of playing old PC games without having to use hamachi or some other arcaic way to connect, someone would have at least emulated it.
