Subject: Will you be nostalgic for the 2010s in the 2020s?

Written By: 2001 on 01/24/16 at 12:25 pm

It's 2025 and someone raves about rewatching Breaking Bad, or someone starts dancing the Gangnam Style, or a lady with black-thick framed glasses walks in wearing a red plaid shirt and skin-tight black skinny jeans complete with the uggs, and let's not forget the beige H&M scarf. Do you see yourself getting hit with a nostalgia bomb?

I'm pretty young so my last year of high school was 2009-2010 school year. I'm already super nostalgic for it. I had the whole neon fashion down, black skater hoodie, the orange with white-fade in v-neck, skin-tight skinny jeans, and neon orange (yes, orange!) basketball shoes. I remember playing soccer on the field during lunch hour and even playing leapfrog, and when it would rain we'd play Mario Kart on our DSes or maybe BlazBlue on our PSPs.

I'm nostalgic for every other year too, especially 2011, 2014.

i want to elaborate more, but first I want to hear what you guys think. Do you see yourself wishing "take me back to summer of '11!" or hell naw? :D

I constantly rant about today's culture on this site, so you probably already know my answer  8-P. We still have 4 more years of this decade left, so perhaps I'll be nostalgic for the late 2010s, but definitely not the early-mid portion.

I don't see myself getting nostalgic over those things. But I do see myself getting nostalgic over the tech that I own like my Galaxy S6 Edge, and Surface Pro 3 with Windows 10. I will probably be nostalgic for some the mobile apps that I use now too as those won't be around in 2020. I will probably be very nostalgic over my university days that I am in currently because by 2020 I will be probably be out in the real world working. I won't be nostalgic over popular music and fashion, I will with the music I listen to that's not mainstream. I think popular trends these days such as the "selfie" and memes will receive a backlash in the 2020's and be looked at as very cheesy. Then in the 2030's these things will be looked at with nostalgia. I mean I can totally see people cringing over the word "selfie" in 2025 and kids in 2029 making fun of the "Watch me" video. Oh yeah and let's not forget the so called "hoverboards", people are gonna say "People used that thing, were they crazy?" XD I see the 2010's as a cheesy era kinda like the 80s, things will get more serious in the 2020's and people are gonna look back at this decade as very corny yet nostalgic at the same time.

Depending on how long the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies last, I'll be nostalgic over those obviously. The excitement of the iPad being brand new or how fun and addicting Angry Birds were. TV shows like The Walking Dead or The Flash when those end. I'll be talking about how epic playing Call of Duty Black Ops with high school friends were. How amazing the electropop era of music was, especially in 2010, or how great other music were like Eminem- The Monster, Mark Ronson- Uptown Funk, or Adele- Hello. I don't know, we'll have to see in due time.

I don't really think I could ever become nostalgic towards something that I despise the most. This decade sucks. Of all the decades that I learned throughout history and what I remember, this decade is boring as sheesh. The media, pop culture, current events, and politics seem really excruciating.  Even on television, there's barely anything on now. Even when some people think that TV is good nowadays, I disagree with them. Today's TV is nothing more than a pile of sheesh. All I've been doing since 2014 is either being nostalgic for the 2000s, playing GTA, watching YouTube vids, etc. I wouldn't be nostalgic over that, since that would be the time I'll wait for the 2000s to become older.

Depends on how the late '10s go.

As of now, I am and will remain nostalgic for the early '10s.  The mid-10s not so much.

I'm usually only nostalgic for things that're over 10 years old. Anything from say 2004/2005 or before is what I'm nostalgic about. Usually moments that're distance from today in terms of culture. As of the 2010s I don't hate the '10s at all, but I don't see myself being nostalgic for it until maybe the mid-late '20s. By that time I can see myself being nostalgic for the early '10s, but I won't be nostalgic for the mid-late '10s until the '30s probably.

Why do you need to depend on the late 2010s to be nostalgic over this decade? You can just only be nostalgic for the early 2010s, if that matters to you.

I don't see how selfies will receive a backlash. Kids love taking photos, and teenagers of today take the most selfies of all. I can see stuff like selfie sticks being made fun of though. Although I can see an extremely inaccurate 2000s revival taking place in the 2020s, so a selfie/smartphone backlash does make some sense. I can see hoverboard culture replacing skater culture. They'll wear sunglasses and nylon silver pants.  ;D

All awesome  :D I'm definitely going to be nostalgic for some of the superhero movies and TV shows, even if it got saturated a while ago. It's very decade defining.

I can say definitely 2010-2011 right now. Just from the music though. But I will still hold on to my 2000s nostalgia with more praise as long as I live by then.

Sure, they'll still be people taking selfies. But it probably won't be defining pop culture the way it does right now. As for an inaccurate 2000s revival, I really hope it doesn't happen. I just want fashion to be more appealing in the 2020s. I hate the hipster influence that currently has a grasp on 2010s fashion. It literally makes me want to puke  8-P.

By hoverboard culture, I really hope you mean real hoverboards, and not those lame mini segway things we have nowadays. Because it would be awesome to get real hoverboards in the 2020s. I don't care if I'll be entering my 30s in the 2020s (though I'll technically be in my 20s in the early 2020s), I would totally love to ride a hoverboard! Nylon silver pants and sunglasses? That would be a step up from the awful hipster fashion we have nowadays!

I think in the 2020's we should throw away our cellphones and start using Dial Up again. Then, we throw out the skinny jeans and flat hats with the stickers and bend our brims/take off the stickers like proper normal people, wear baggy dickies like in the 90's-2003 or fitted (not skinny) Levi's like in the 80's. After that, we should start going outside more and become human beings again. The sooner society learns that all this technology isn't good for us, the better.

2010's totally suck all the way though. I will probably continue to do what I've been doing since 2004/2005 and be nostalgic for the 80's up to 2003.

Nah, I think people should just use flip phones and broadband Internet (no Wi-fi). Also, lets just use portable DVD players, books (obviously), and Walkmans/early iPods whenever we travel. It's better than using smartphones and tablets that have dumb Internet service anyway. As for TV, let's just use cable. Netflix, Hulu, Roku, and Amazon Fire seems more advanced than digital cable for crying out loud.

I would love for all those things to happen. It'll be awesome when the backlash against the current era of fashion occurs, and when it does, 2010s fashion is going to age terribly. It may get some sort of BS revival in the 2030s  ;D

The only one that doesn't seem likely are people throwing away their cell phones and using dial up again. I mean it may do society good, but knowing the way things are going, I don't think we'll ever get those days again. Unless a solar flare occurred, but that would basically wipe out all technology, which would probably make things even worse. But there has to be some way things can improve in the 2020s. All I know is things can't keep going the way they have been in this decade. Everything has it's breaking point. All I know is I have to hope for something. I know I sound a bit dramatic, but we're living in pretty messed up times in the 2010s.

That's too mid 2000's for me. ;D Flip phones get a pass because you could get those in the 90's but the rest of that stuff wasn't too common until 2004. Maybe broadband and the occasional DVD you could fit in but that's it. It's all about the Discman, Windows 98 PC's, Dial Up, VHS tapes and cassette Walkmans! Throw in some LP's too 'cuz Records are rad. No more of this 100% digital society crap.

Yeah, I wish it would but a dude can dream, I guess. Wiping out technology would be pretty awful. Some of it is good but most of it is intrusive and unnecessary. Not like the old days when it was just a useful tool and nothing more. Now it's a bullsh!t way of life. The 2010's are even more messed up than the mid 2000's! I don't like the culture of 2004-2007 but the 2010's make them look much better.

Dude, what's wrong with using portable DVD players and broadband Internet? Barely anybody uses them anymore and I remember playing it with my collection of DVDs when I was little. It's even obsolete compared to smartphones, since you can access everything that you want on apps. With DVD players (especially portable ones), it only matters on your DVD collection. All of that "crap" is less digital than the stuff we have now.

Me, too! 2004 had some very, very small early 2000's leftovers which made the year slightly better but it's mostly like 2005 was. Awful and generic. Personal life wise, the mid 2000's were pretty good but uneventful and lacked the fun adventures I had in the 90's and early 2000's.

Starting in 2003 but more so in 2004, my friends started getting "older" and "more mature" and things didn't work out between a lot of us so road trips became frequently less and less. I did go out on road trips with my then-girlfriend/now-wife but not as much as we did like the years before. I'd mostly travel to see bands in different cities but this is around the time when the mid 2000's style was taking over. I didn't feel up to going to different cities to see bands in skinny jeans and eyeliner. 8-P Them the next year I went to Warped Tour 2005 and decided this new Pop Punk direction was not for me.

Yeah, but lets be honest. DVDs are actually more advantageous than apps/streaming, especially when it comes to quality and selection. With DVDs, you can watch it anytime, without having to worry about connection problems, formatting issues, bad picture/audio quality. And lets be honest, bad digital quality is worse than bad film quality. Not to mention with all these apps and streaming services, you only get a limited amount of choices, which are likely going to change every month. With DVDs or any other type of physical media, you own it, and can watch it anytime you want.

I don't know about you, but I'm still supporting physical media. For some reason, society automatically thinks of convenience over quality. Which is just stupid to me.

While wi-fi is a form of broadband (because high speed interwebs), it's possible to use broadband Internet without Wi-fi. You could just use an Ethernet cable from a router and plug it into your computer.

Ummm... didn't DVDs also have bad picture/audio quality whenever it's scratched or dirty? But I actually agree with what you're saying. DVDs seem really superior compared to streaming services. Hell, I wish Netflix could just focus more on their DVD rental services than their streaming. It sucks when you have a membership for streaming there, but they have a huge-ass library for DVDs.

I may be nostalgic for my community college years of the early 2010s (actually, I already am), but as for the decade as a whole, I can't see that happening. There are a lot of things going on this decade that I don't care for (male fashion being an exception -- the metrosexual look is kind of appealing to me), such as the political climate and shallow social media culture. I'm not even nostalgic for the 2000s, to be honest.

But broadband was something different back in the mid 2000s. Most people used it with Ethernet cable back then.

Yeah, I know but wouldn't that only mean their way of connecting to the internet was different but the type of connection is the same?

Nah, I think people should just use flip phones and broadband Internet (no Wi-fi). Also, lets just use portable DVD players, books (obviously), and Walkmans/early iPods whenever we travel. It's better than using smartphones and tablets that have dumb Internet service anyway. As for TV, let's just use cable. Netflix, Hulu, Roku, and Amazon Fire seems more advanced than digital cable for crying out loud.


That sounds like the apocalypse  ;D

Why would you use a portable DVD player though? iPods can play video.

I definitely don't want to use cable. It's awful, I cut the cord ages ago and never looked back. Netflix all the way, I like being able to watch TV shows on my own time, and not break the bank at the same time.  :o

I may be nostalgic for my community college years of the early 2010s (actually, I already am), but as for the decade as a whole, I can't see that happening. There are a lot of things going on this decade that I don't care for (male fashion being an exception -- the metrosexual look is kind of appealing to me), such as the political climate and shallow social media culture. I'm not even nostalgic for the 2000s, to be honest.


Yay, I'm not alone!

I'm not nostalgic for the 2000s either, except the early 2000s, but I was a kid so it doesn't even count. Maybe a bit of late 2000s, but not as much as the early '10s for example.

I agree the political climate of the first half of the 10s has been completely rotten. Let's hope the second half goes better. In Canada we elected a Prime Minister who isn't science-illeterate so I am hopeful for us at least. My province's premier (equivalent of governor) is still extremely incompetent though.

I'm already blown away that 2007 is closer to 1998 than it is to now.  In fact, the first sliver of it is already equidistant from 1997.  Just the fact that '07 had so much social media and YouTube and other web videos were on everybody's radar, not to mention it was when I entered high school, and now the year is closer to the time I was still in preschool.  It's a strange thought.

Classic iPod models (and early iPod Touch models) are a pain in the ass to play video, while portable DVD players can play it just fine. Plus, the screen is much bigger on portable DVD players.

Have fun searching for a show or movie that they probably don't have anymore. But with all due respect, I do accept that Netflix is more affordable than most cable services. However, YouTube has more variety than Netflix for crying out loud. You could buy any movie or TV show they have, which probably cost less than your annual Netflix subscription fee.

Yeah, but lets be honest. DVDs are actually more advantageous than apps/streaming, especially when it comes to quality and selection. With DVDs, you can watch it anytime, without having to worry about connection problems, formatting issues, bad picture/audio quality. And lets be honest, bad digital quality is worse than bad film quality. Not to mention with all these apps and streaming services, you only get a limited amount of choices, which are likely going to change every month. With DVDs or any other type of physical media, you own it, and can watch it anytime you want.

I don't know about you, but I'm still supporting physical media. For some reason, society automatically thinks of convenience over quality. Which is just stupid to me.


I hated DVDs! I was buying VHS up to 2005. What I hate about DVDs is that a little tiny scratch renders the whole thing useless.

Blu-ray is much better, it doesn't scratch as easily. Digital copy > Blu-ray > Streaming > VHS >>>>> DVD.

I use Google Play to rent movies sometimes. Never TV shows though, those are too expensive.

If it's not on Netflix though, I usually don't care to watch it. It's the same problem with Cable, if you don't have this $40/month cable package then boohoo, you have to buy it even though you already have 90% of those channels on another cable package. If it wasn't on the cable package I had then, I just wouldn't care to watch it.

Then if it's something on HBO, ShowTime, or any premium channel, then why couldn't you just buy it on Blu-Ray? I can get that you didn't want cable because of how expensive it was, but I suggest buying more Blu-Ray discs if Netflix goes out.

Well, it's really only interesting if you frame it in terms of the past century or so, since the world evolved utterly dramatically throughout the course of the 20th century.  Even growing up, before I got interested in analyzing popular culture by decade, I was always hung up over the fact that the year 1900 was technically part of the same century as 1999.  The former was still the Victorian Age, hardly had automobiles, was defined by extravagantly formal fashion, and both film and sound recordings were in their infancy at the time.  It's just weird to put the year of Super Smash Bros., Britney Spears, Eminem, The Matrix, the Internet boom, cell phones, and my own childhood under the same umbrella term as all of that.

That's why they say "Be Kind, Rewind" dude. You must have a low tolerance level if you think the... "whirring" sound is annoying. DVD's break a lot easier than the mighty VHS, too. You also don't need scene selection on a VHS because it remembers exactly where you left off.

I was only 0-12 so I didn't notice things like video quality detoriaration. I would go to the rental store with my uncle and he'd pick out a cool 80s movie from his teenagehood and we'd watch it together. I didn't care if I could practically see the pixels  ;D

That is definitely true. 80's movies often do have that kind of look whereas late 90's/early 00's movies are more clear (but they still have that film quality). It's still got a lot of charm. Plus, watching the original Star Wars tapes should be the only way to watch Star Wars!

I don't know what the future is going to bring. The 2010's are only a little over halfway through, we've got plenty of time left. I really can't say if I will miss the 2010's or not. Since I've had really great times throughout the 2010's, I probably will miss it. The 2010's are my youth decade. However, I'm really not one to look back on my past too much. I don't revel in nostalgia, but it could also be my age. I'm only 20, why should I miss being 10 years old? My life is so much more interesting, fulfilling, and fun now, and I had a great childhood!


A 2010's movie will include these archetypes.....

-The far Left/Liberal social justice warrior.
-The hipster with that haircut, and the hipster clothes.

I'm sure there's more.


If it were taking place in the early 2010's then that hipster stuff will apply, but not the mid 2010's which have been more diverse. I do agree with the first option though, although I have never met one in real life.

I think it has more to do with the technology that the movies was filmed with than VHS deterioration. Like, 80s movies have this quality about them that late 90s/early 2000s movies don't.


Which is why I prefer DVDs when there's a late 90s/early 2000s movie.

That red VHS image also reminded me of thing called "Vaporwave" which is a basically a music genre where you get music from the '70s - '00s and edit them a bit while also slowing them down. Vaporwave started sometime in the early 2010s so I thought I'd bring it up.

Why is that a problem to you? You can just go to their scene selection and find the scene where you left off. VHS tapes were only good in the 80s to mid 90s, and DVDs made it better once it was released in 1997 in the United States.

I'm usually only nostalgic for things that're over 10 years old. Anything from say 2004/2005 or before is what I'm nostalgic about. Usually moments that're distance from today in terms of culture. As of the 2010s I don't hate the '10s at all, but I don't see myself being nostalgic for it until maybe the mid-late '20s. By that time I can see myself being nostalgic for the early '10s, but I won't be nostalgic for the mid-late '10s until the '30s probably.

I think in the 2020's we should throw away our cellphones and start using Dial Up again. Then, we throw out the skinny jeans and flat hats with the stickers and bend our brims/take off the stickers like proper normal people, wear baggy dickies like in the 90's-2003 or fitted (not skinny) Levi's like in the 80's. After that, we should start going outside more and become human beings again. The sooner society learns that all this technology isn't good for us, the better.

2010's totally suck all the way though. I will probably continue to do what I've been doing since 2004/2005 and be nostalgic for the 80's up to 2003.

I won't miss all the dumb reality shows.  Kim Kardasian - Famous for getting busy with Brandy's little brother Ray J. Teen Mom - Inspired many girls to get pregnant cause they think its really like that.  That sh!t is glamourized.  Jersey Shore - Guido's and bee hives.  DTF GTL.  This show is very disrespectful and it offends me personally.  None of this is Italian.  Its foul mouthed sllutbags who are famous for being very immature.


They all should go away.

I think this is already possible well it was. By hooking up an adapter from the vhs player to a recording device that records on disc. You would use the same adapter used to connect a game player.

VHS was king during the late 90s to early 00s. It wasn't until 2003 that it really declined. Late 90's/early 00's movies look great on VHS. Not mid 00's, though. Too modern.

When it comes to VHS or DVD I liked both. I like VHS for reasons like how it always remembers where you stopped off and that I don't have to worry about scratches. For DVD I like how it holds more data so instead of having only 3 episodes on a VHS I can get 12+ on DVD. Although Blu Ray beats both VHS and DVD in the storage space argument.

I wasn't really talking about the Star Wars DVDs, but the format was made so people wouldn't have to deal with tape. Especially when DVDs can be compatible in DVD players, computers, video game consoles, and hard drives. VHS tapes are only compatible on VCRs. I know this is your opinion and all, but how can you still glorify a format that's extremely obsolete to any other one?

The VHS was made to compete against Betamax and that's it. DVDs were made to be convenient and compete against VHS tapes. You can even fit over fifty to a couple hundred of DVDs on their cases/wallets. The only way you can store VHS tapes was to get huge-ass shelves. They aren't even portable for christ's sakes.

Although DVDs can be easily broken, you can still clean them up. If the tape gets screwed up on a VHS cartridge, then you're fudgeed. You're never able to see that scene ever again. And what if it's rare? Then you or somebody else was wasting a thousand dollars towards that sh!t.

You can configure your computer and video games consoles to play VHS tapes if you are crafty enough. ;)

You know how VHS beat the Betamax in the 80's? Well, when DVD arrived, people predicted VHS would kick it's ass like it did the Betamax, Laserdisc, VCD, CDV, etc. You can make a portable VCR if you're crafty enough. ;)

Once the DVD breaks, that's it. It's no good and you have to throw it in the trash. VHS tapes are built like tanks and Nokia phones so they never break.

But sometimes things are out of the parents control and kids will get into things they're not supposed to. If they get to the DVD's, that's it for those movies. They get to the VHS tapes, they can take a beating and still work perfectly. Netflix will never be the great format that VHS was.

Netflix and DVDs have greater quality than VHS tapes. So I don't really think kids today could enjoy something that seems so obsolete since the late 90s.

Sony tried with the UMD format for the PSP. I think it was rumored for a while that the PS4 was supposed to use it, but it never caught on beyond the PSP, especially not with digital becoming the format of choice. They're small and look easy to lose, but I at least liked the plastic covering.

Sony tried with the UMD format for the PSP. I think it was rumored for a while that the PS4 was supposed to use it, but it never caught on beyond the PSP, especially not with digital becoming the format of choice. They're small and look easy to lose, but I at least liked the plastic covering.


I remember hearing about how those things kept breaking.

I think that if kids today were exposed to the almighty VHS, they'd realize it's superior means of the consumption of film and throw out their crappy outdated DVD's. That isn't true, I could watch movies on TV, too. I've always had cable. That is subjective. My grandpa thinks that society went downhill in 1980 and that we've been stuck in 1980 ever since. So, to you and I it is no longer the 80's but to my grandpa it is. He is human too and his viewpoint is just as valid so we must not forget about him. Nothing is lower than DVD quality after a couple of scratches.

I agree the political climate of the first half of the 10s has been completely rotten. Let's hope the second half goes better. In Canada we elected a Prime Minister who isn't science-illeterate so I am hopeful for us at least. My province's premier (equivalent of governor) is still extremely incompetent though.

Harper really began showing his true colours in the early 2010s. That's one reason I prefer the late 00s, if he was incompetent then, it was at least too early to tell. Unlike Bush.

This is what old VHS tapes look like if you played them today.

https://media.giphy.com/media/13ICuEL3gU4gSc/giphy.gif

I seems like people's tapes are deteriorating more and more. That quality is even worse than the last time I used my VHS in 2012.



So?

You sure about these statistics? Other sites I read have stated that Blu-ray never sold as well in it's first 2 years on market as the DVD did in the same time frame, yet the above seems to suggest the exact opposite. I'd be weary about that since I myself can attest that Blu-ray was very much niche back then.

I wasn't really talking about the Star Wars DVDs, but the format was made so people wouldn't have to deal with tape.

It was made so people could have a laser disc that they didn't need to call in a moving van for.

1. What gods? The gods who control the sweat shops in China to make those cartridges? Get the f*ck outta here.
2. Yeah, it was. Why do you think Betamax died?
3. So you call 333x480 pixels (VHS) better than 720x480 pixels (DVD)? lol
4. I kept my DVDs stored in their original cases, and they don't deteriorate in quality.
5. No, it's just that I find VHS to be bulky.
6. lol, billions of people. Does that include kids? Because I don't think they'll even care for them nowadays.
7. DVD's popularity started out in the early 2000s, even before 2003.
8. VHS is fit for people who like watching movies with terrible quality.


1. You wouldn't understand 'cause you don't know the gods. How rude. It's the DVD's that are made in China. VHS is made in America.
2. It wasn't made to compete, though. It just came out the same time.
3. Yes, as it is my opinion and these are only subjective things.
4. Because you have them in some 1,000 dollar DVD safe.
5. Yeah, sure.
6. You must be ignoring the posts in this thread that speak of the VHS tape's mighty ability.
7. But VHS was king before 2003. I know you can't be trusted because you think the mid-late 00's are better than the glorious early 00's.
8. DVD is fit for people who are lame and like things that break easily.

Nobody is really buying DVD's these days, it's "Netflix and Chill" these days. Which is why DVD's are nostalgic to me. I haven't seen a DVD in ages.

As for USB stick, I do still see them around but much less lately because everything is going on the cloud and Google Drive is very simple to use for students. So the nostalgia for USB drives is starting for me because they are starting to get older and older as cloud computing improves.

I'm sorry, but there's no way Netflix streaming or any other streaming service can replace DVDs, Blu-Rays, VHS, or any other type of physical media. Streaming suffers from formatting problems, such as poor picture quality, and bad sound, when played on a T.V. And say you lose internet connection (may be a rare case nowadays, but it can still happen), whoops no movies for you! And even with perfect connection, you can still have problems with the connection (there were times where I couldn't even start netflix, even with my perfect internet connection), and lagging (seriously ruins my movie experience). And, your choices of movies are limited. Even your favorite movie is bound to be removed in another month. I don't hate streaming, but it certainly is overrated. It has way to many disadvantages to replace physical media.

Physical media is tangible. You actually own it, and can rewatch the movie anytime you want. And if you take care of it, it'll last for a long long time. People are putting way too much faith in digital media. This isn't progress, it's stupidity. Don't they realize that their precious cloud could crash? All those important files end up dead in the water. Same applies to digital downloads of music and movies. Sure they can be convenient, but they are NOT a worthy replacement to physical media.

Personally, I don't care what society does. I'll always support physical media. Digital media does have it's place, but it's not a trustworthy replacement.

I agree with what you're saying, but in a couple of years streaming can improve a lot a match physical media. I know right now it's not exactly there yet, but in the near future it will be improved and become much better because the internet keeps growing and growing. But I get what you're saying, with physical media there is no way something can go wrong but with the internet there is always that risk especially today.

Now this isn't to say that I want streaming to disappear. As time progress and technology advances I can see streaming becoming more reliable than ever, but at the same time I don't wish for DVDs and such to go away. I like the idea of collecting my movies/games in real life. A world where the two coexist is the world I'd want to live in.


My thoughts exactly.

I'm guessing people would remember the 2010s as if they just reminisced over the 90s and early 2000s. I mean, it seems like that person wanted to use VCRs just like anybody else did in the 80s and 90s.


Told ya' people still use VCR's! :P

The last time I used VCRs to record anything was the 2013 Macy's parade. I suppose some people still use VCRs because, even today, it's still the easiest most foolproof way to record something off the TV. Lately I have no need to record anything from the TV which is pretty much why I stopped using my VCR.

Edit: alot of youtube videos from 2009 of footage recorded from the TV seem to be recorded by VCR indicating that it was still pretty common.

Here's a clip from 2014, which was still recorded on video tape:

I always find it funny when 2010s shows get recorded on VHS and still look &  sound relatively HD.

Probably using better VHS tapes that can hold data of higher quality. In the 2010s nearly everything should be able to handle HD now. They probably made VHS tapes that are improved to the point where they can handle HD videos.

We have a VCR built into our VCR/DVD combo but My Father barely uses it.
