Subject: Why the 2010s is the greatest decade

Written By: 2001 on 03/20/16 at 2:39 pm

Alternative Title: What does the 2010s excel/fall flat at

There's way too much negativity on these boards about present times. This is a thread where we talk about what the 2010s are good at compared to previous decades.

I'll start off

Fashion

People can call it 'hipster'all they want, but It feels like the 2010s are the first decade to bother dressing classy since the early '60s. Preppy looks are in again and no one bats an eye that you're dressing to kill when you're walking to the convenience store. In previous decades it felt like if you were dressing too well, you would get scornful looks until you dressed like everybody else.

Low Crime

Crime rates are down across the board for almost any crime you can think of. You won't think it if your glued to your cable news, but we are living in the safest decade since the 1950s.

Great TV shows and Cartoons

http://www.digitaltrends.com/movies/why-the-golden-age-of-tv-is-not-ending-anytime-soon/

Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, The Office, Sherlock, Daredevil, Bloodlines, Silicon Valley, Suits, Scandal etc. and I can really go on forever. Critics and viewers alike are not shy to dub the 2010s as the Golden Age of Television, and it's no surprise why with the amount of great content that's out there that suits everybody's taste. I don't watch many cartoons, but almost all that I've seen have been excellent. Phineas & Ferb, Gravity Falls, Adventure Time are some of the greatest animation ever made in my opinion. I'm sure someone more knowledgeable about this can back me up (Toon ;))

Great dance music

This is not as lively as it once was, but if you were a young adult in the early 2010s, you're most likely looking fondly back at the raging club scene of the early '10s where we got the great dance hits of Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, Maroon 5, Flo Rida, Calvin Harris, Bruno Mars, Oily Murs, PSY, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and the list goes on and on. Every decade has its great dance hits, but at the very least I'm thankful that I'm spending my young adult years in the 2010s and not in the 2000s at least. I love to dance!

What else do you guys concede that this decade is good at?  ;D

Well, here are a few positives about the 2010s:

* HD format being standard. It looks great.
* There being a higher percentage of people supporting same-sex marriage.
* The early 2010s produced a lot of great YouTube videos, pop songs, and television shows.
* Some of the movies this decade are pretty strong, especially bolder ones like Carol and Straight Outta Compton.

Other than that, I have little positive to say about this decade. The fashion's atrocious, the social extremism is raucous on both sides, the video games suck, the technological lean towards convenience and corporate greed is abhorrent, there's the ugly fact that I still find it impossible to find a romantic partner in spite of the cultural emphasis on diversity, the music's so underwhelming, and there's the disgusting cultural obsession with pointless social media like Instagram, it's all pretty wretched, in my opinion.

Even though I hate this decade in general, I believe there are some positives.

* We're still living in the golden age of television. Especially with streaming services like Netflix being popular.
* The economy has been great as the late 90s.
* Obama (even though he's been panned down by Republicans).
* Gay people are becoming more accepted, thanks to the lifting of same-sex marriage bans from the U.S. Supreme Court. Even though some people would disagree, especially from the Southern U.S.
* Indie games are now the rage. (e.g. Undertale, Five Nights at Freddy's)

Besides those examples, this decade isn't my cup of tea. At all. The cartoons are overrated, the Internet culture is horrendous, companies like Viacom, Nickelodeon and Nintendo aren't doing that well, the social media sucks (especially Instagram and Snapchat), and the f*cking presidential election is a living hell. Seriously, there are barely any candidates that seem acceptable. I just despise them except for Clinton. It's just a joke. I don't know how anybody could be proud of being American, when we have people voting for Trump as president. Sorry to sound like a SJW, but it disappoints me with despair.

I agree with you. The 2016 election is going to be a f*cking train wreck. I mean you have Adolf Hitler 2.0 vs Obama 2.0. Oh how fun this election season is going to be.

In Canadian politics, I really like the second half of this decade. Justin Trudeau is our Prime Minister, tuition is going to be free for low-income families starting next year, my city's mayor is urbanist and building subways, LRTs, and bus lanes. It's left-wing paradise.

edit: the best thing is that there are no elections until 2018/2019. In 2016 and 2017 I'm not reading any newspapers! I can just sit back and relax and trust that the country is in good hands.  ;D

I guess it could be an affirmation over common sense, since Trump doesn't even have any political experience. But sadly, uneducated Americans believe it's the truth, by looking over a stupid businessman's name.

Isn't the 2000s identified with flip-phones, ringtone raps, Soulja Boy, early YouTube, Windows XP, and more? I really don't know how people don't think it has a unique identity, when we're using technology that has been introduced in the 2000s (e.g. smartphones).

What I don't like about American politics is how long the campaigns are. Why can't all the state primaries vote at the same time? Why is it drawn out over 4 months?  :o Huge waste of money.

In Canada, primaries only last 3-6 hours/one day LOL, done. Election campaigns only last 4 weeks. ;D

From all of this, at least 2016 has a better cultural identity than 2006. That's something I could agree with Slowpoke on. I mean, 2006 pretty much had the same identity as 2005 for crying out loud. That's saying something.

I liked the 2010s portion of my high school (2009-10) over the 2000s portion (2006-2009). After the recession, it became more acceptable to be studious/nerdy and hard-working, and after Prop-8, homophobia became unpopular very quickly.

I guess maybe it's because Canada is more liberal than the United States. Homophobia is still popular in the Deep South, even though I don't live there.

The 2010's aren't great but I'd rather live in today than the dark age past (the real 2000s). But it still stands that every 20XX year that isn't 2000, 2001 or 2002 (maybe 2003) I have no interest in.

I feel like the US is about where Canada was with gay marriage around 2005/2006. In Canada, it was legalized where I live in 2003 (equivalent of 2012 Iowa in the US), and nationwide in 2005 (equivalent of 2015 nationwide in the US), but it took until 2008/2009 for homophobia to be as unacceptable as racism/sexism. Maybe that will be 2018/2019 over there.

When I think of the 2010's I think of that one stupid song on the radio, "Stay With Me" and how drawn out, bland and melodramatic it is. Why is the 2010's continuing the awful whines of the real 2000's? I miss how upbeat the 80'sm 90's and early 00's were. I do not understand the 2016 sound of music, it sounds like nails on a chalkboard to these ears.

The 2010s sounds way different than the mid-late 2000s. It wasn't defined with Drake, Justin Bieber, twerking Nicki Minaj, or anything that sings "twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk that ass". That kind of sh*t is like nails on a chalkboard.

2010s music is very upbeat :o I've never heard many describe it as sad (though 2016 is trying way too hard, but most the popular stuff is upbeat). In general I felt like when Obama got elected and the great recession ravaged the economy, people tried to be hopeful for the future, and upbeat music and colourful fashion followed. I'd list examples but I'd be here all day, so let's go with the charts.

2010

1. TiK ToK (upbeat)
2. Need You Now (sad)
3. Hey, Soul Sister (upbeat)
4. California Gurls (upbeat)
5. OMG! (upbeat)

2011

1. Rolling in the Deep (upbeat sad?)
2. Party Rock Anthem (upbeat)
3. Firework (upbeat)
4. E.T. (upbeat)
5. Give Me Everything (upbeat)

2012
1. Somebody That I Used To Know (sad)
2. Call Me Maybe (upbeat)
3. We Are Young (upbeat)
4. Payphone (sad)
5. Lights (upbeat)

2013

1. Thrift Shop (upbeat)
2. Blurred Lines (upbeat)
3. Radioactive (upbeat)
4. Harlem Shake (upbeat)
5. Can't Hold Up (upbeat)

2014

1. Happy (lol)
2. Dark Horse (upbeat)
3. All of Me (sad)
4. Fancy (upbeat)
5. Counting Stars (upbeat)

2015

1. Uptown Funk (upbeat)
2. Thinking Out Loud (upbeat)
3. See You Again (upbeat)
4. Trap Queen (upbeat)
5. Sugar (upbeat)

Some of these songs I only sampled for a few secnods, so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Maybe someone more fluent on the charts can do a top 10. Going by the top 5, 2012 was the 'saddest' year, though honestly Payphone is such a good song that it deserves to be up there, even if it is sad.

Those songs somehow gave me some nostalgia. Not the kind of nostalgia I'll get from the 2000s, but some recent nostalgia. Thanks, I guess. Although, I just hate 2012 for my personal life. It was just the absolute worst for me.

It's hard to decide whether a decade is really better than another or not. You gotta look into it deeper than that. It depends on what age you are growing up, your family situation and the type of pop culture you followed, the world, politics, lifestyle, the economy, the mainstream TV shows, movies, sports, etc. or the kid culture. You can't just automatically say that the 2010's were better than the 2000's with everything. It doesn't work that way. You gotta look at the big picture. There's many things about the 2010's I think are better than the 2000's, and there are many things about the 2000's I believe are better than the 2010's. My opinion on this would obviously be different had I been born 10 or 20 years earlier, heck, my opinion might have changed had I been a different race and/or born in a different country that doesn't have the same type of government or pop culture as the U.S.  :o

Tony Hawk, Pop Punk, Chain Wallets, the wacky hi-jinks of Dubya and Clinton, co-existence of the PS1 and PS2, we had it all. What a rad time to be alive! The 2010's are the decade of sissies.

That's why I had the alternative title "What does the 2010s excel at". The point was to admit to something the 2010s was good for. :)

Overall as someone who was kid/teen in the 2000s and a young adult in the 2010s, I much prefer this decade. The last one was very bland. Just my opinion of course, as you said age and personal interest factor in a lot.

2011-2012 felt very raucous. I was in uni then and we had Occupy right as I got in. Then there were protests against rape on campus, then in the end of the year there was a massive protest in Montreal (200,000 demonstrators) and a lot of my friends bussed there. That sheesh got wild, they were dropping frogs in the staff washrooms LOL. That was the year the Libyan civil war was in full swing, so I don't consider it peaceful like 2009/2010 were.

Actually, mainstream TV is still really good, if not better. The Flash is awesome! Agents of Shield, Arrow, and Gotham are pretty decent or ok. Not sure about Supergirl though. The Walking Dead which is one of my favorite TV shows of all time is still on as well as House of Cards and Game of Thrones. Empire is a decent show. I'm looking forward to Samurai Jack making its comeback on too.

Yeah, sitcoms and episodic TV shows in general aren't very popular anymore. Not sure that I care too much, there are still great comedies like Community and recently I heard Superstore is very good too.

I hope it makes a comeback someday. People need to realize that it's not the format of a show that's at fault. It's all in the writing. Any show of any format can be good, with good writing and characters. That's why people still enjoy shows like Seinfeld and Fresh Prince of Bel Air. I refuse to believe that sitcoms are dead. All it takes is for one really good sitcom to bring the format back.

Nope! The Anthem single came out in early 2003! ;) Besides, Little Things was already a pretty big hit in 2001 and The Click had gained some recognition thanks to it being the Undergrads theme. ;) ;) The Anthem doesn't even sound like a real 00's song! How could you? It's 100% spirit of 1998! >:(

No, the lady in my avatar isn't me, even though I wouldn't be upset if you thought she was! So long as you don't imagine me as a man, I think I'm pretty satisfied!

I'd post my picture but I've revealed a lot of things on here I haven't revealed IRL and I'd hate for that to be traced back (even if the chance is remote). I wonder if there's a way to only show members photos instead of everybody.

If Beavis & Butthead wasn't still airing new episodes throughout 1997, then you'd surely have to categorize that year with 1998-2002! Beavis & Butthead is pretty much the only major thing about 1997 that makes it seem overall mid-90s instead of late 90s, imo! :P

In all honesty, February 1997 was like when the scale first crossed into late 90s territory, with mid-90s influences now truly losing ground. The transition continued, however, in March, when Biggie was murdered and Savage Garden and Hanson blew up; in May, when Tony Blair became the Prime Minister of the UK and Radiohead released OK Computer; in July, when Star Fox 64 was released, Cartoon Network entered its golden age, and the Backstreet Boys finally caught on in America; in August, when South Park premiered on television, GoldenEye 007 revolutionized console gaming, and Princess Diana lost her life; in September, when The Simpsons jumped the shark; and finally in November, when Beavis & Butthead aired its last new episode.

Oh if we're talking core then it's core 2000s. But I thought millennium period meant late 90s and early 2000s combined. Early 2000s definitely doesn't end until December 25,  2003 when we get Cheaper By the Dozen, the last early 2000s movie lol.

Nope! When I MYSELF thinks of Millennium period; I mean the VERY late 90s(1998 and 1999) and VERY early 00s(2000 and 2001). It was it's brief own thing. It did not last THAT long. Maybe kid culutre wise it did. But if you focus on the actual mainstream pop culutre, for me it's a different story.

I think it's hilarious just how complicated these theories can get regarding the boundaries of the Y2K era. Personally, I can go with this:

Early Y2K era: February 1997 to February 1999
Core-Y2K era:  March 1999 to September 11, 2001
Late Y2K era:  September 11, 2001 to December 2003

The XTREME! era will always be 1998-2002 to me. It did in 2005, it does now and it forever will be. These are the facts. Why? Because I, Jordan: Hero of America, say so. I am the Early 00s Guy after all! Why would anyone dispute my words? ;)

1997 and 2003 are just transitions. 1997 is super mighty because it's a real 90s year and the 90s kicked ass. 2003? The real 00s sucked dog turd so it's only 50/50 good.


No way!! Everything about that movie is early 2000s! The kids don't even computers in their houses and use that giant CD player! >:(

I agree. That movie is far too loud for the real 2000's. The real 2000's was all about being a huge wimp and wearing your hair all over your face.

No offense to you guys but topics about the 2010s always seem to turn into debates about when an era starts or which era was better from different decades, not angry or anything, just saying. :)

I beleive that the 2010s could be better if we all had unity and if there was no selfish world leaders serving on their own interests. The economy also really needs to pick up, which will probably not happen in the next 2 years as I think by 2018 we will be in a recession. Hopefully afterwards the economy picks up and no Mr. Obama, I cannot accept 2% GDP growth as the new normal, that should not be the new normal. There will be a significant change in the atmosphere after the Presidential Election. Hillary or Trump will be president and I choose the latter.

There is going to be significant political upheaval in the next few years and then we will see a relative calm afterwords. Whatever president is elected will shift the country into each parties ideological sides. I would much rather see a republican than a democrat in the White House as Hillary will just be the same old thing that we have had for 8 years which I think we should have a better leader. Hillary will be a one term president if elected. Trump has a more possibility of being a two term president if elected as he is of a different party.

The 2010s would be such a golden decade if we had a booming economy of the 1990s combined with the relative peacefulness of the 50s.

Well dude, you gots sh!ts like Nu Metal and Pop Punk on that list and a lot of those hip hop/RnB songs sound like the early 00s but you also got Lil Jon and the Crunk Overlords. In the middle I guess. Somewhat spirit of 1998 but moving towards the spirit of 2004.

2003-2006 were the most sombre parts of the new millennium to me. From the Iraq War to the Israel-Lebanon war and the Madrid train bombings, "Operation Iraqi Freedom", 2004 election, Asian Tsunami, London bombings, South Asian earthquake in between. I made a post about this in another thread, I'll look for it. The 2010s are more angry rather than afraid, like the 2000s are.

Edit: yeah, these are my thoughts on 2003-2007


I liked the rock/emo music of the time  ;D (*flameshield against JordanK1982*). Some of the R&B music was good too, but you had to wade through a lot of crap to get to the good stuff.

I hated the fashion of the time, even though I was at the top of my own game. It was just too sloppy.

The movies and TV shows are great but I don't miss the reality TV shows and all that celebrity gossip. Seriously, we witnessed the crash of Britney Spears,  Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Smith (R.I.P) those years, it was disaster everywhere you looked.

Also for some reason I remember a lot of natural disasters happening that period which was very distressing to me. You had the Asian Tsunami in late 2004, then you had Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and I believe there was an earthquake in Pakistan/India as well that year, then you had the terrorist attack in London happen a few weeks later and then in France you had riots. Couple that with the Iraq and Afghanistan war ongoing and the Israel-Lebanon war in 2006, I thought the world was coming to an end.  ;D

Personal life wise, I enjoyed 2003/early 2004 and a bit of 2007 (and late 2006). That mushy part in the middle though...  8-P

One thing I like about the '10s is the greater acceptance of individualism and the decline of the homophobic "macho male" culture that prevailed throughout most of the 2000s.  In the '00s, you could be called gay for something as simple as ordering a craft beer instead of a Budweiser.  If you were male and had any sense of fashion you were considered gay, unless you were emo.  The more I think about it, the more I remember how much that any self-respecting heterosexual guy could NOT do during the 2000s that has nothing to do with sexuality at all, all because it was seen as gay.  Couldn't order a strawberry lemonade or any fruity cocktail.  Couldn't listen to anything but hip-hop or rock (dance/techno was a HUGE no-no and boy bands were even worse).  All clothes had to be 2 sizes too large, because clothes that fit were gay.  It was very difficult to remain secure in your sexuality last decade.  I am really glad most of that has gone by the wayside.

Two guys could not go to the movie theater together (unless they left a seat between them) or to a sit down restaurant.  Male conversation had to remain shallow, usually about sports or sex, and not go into anything personal or emotional. It was pretty pathetic.

I remember in middle school when kids would call each other gay for all of those reasons he listed. Even if you accidentally admitted the word "gay" and didn't know how you were using it people would cross you off their friends list in a heartbeat. It's always been common for girls to wear tight clothes or undersized clothes, while most guys always wear regular fit clothes or larger. So before the hipster style of dressing got popular in the mid 2010's, most guys were called gay or homo for dressing up girly or wearing tight clothes unless they were emo liked bchris mentioned. However, it's always been common for homosexual people to dress the opposite of their sex, but NOT all are like this though.

This is correct.  If you were even suspected of being gay, nobody wanted anything to do with you.  I envy '90s-borns coming of age in this decade where it is okay to be a little bit different.

It may be a different ballgame in New York.  Here in the rural South everything I mentioned was actually considered gay, and it wasn't all that different in the larger cities in this part of the country either.

This stuff started to slowly change in the late '00s, with younger Millennials first.

I lived in Toronto in the 2000s and it was still pretty bad. Probably not as bad as the South though, I still had a lot of friends, especially girls because they didn't care about that stuff. The whole macho culture seems to be a 2000s thing for the entire Western world. I think NewYorkEagle missed it because he was still a kid. I don't remember 'gay' being used an insult that much in the early 2000s, probably because I was still a kid at the time, but I'm sure if I were older I would have went through the same thing I did in the other two thirds of the decade.

It may be a different ballgame in New York.  Here in the rural South everything I mentioned was actually considered gay, and it wasn't all that different in the larger cities in this part of the country either.

This stuff started to slowly change in the late '00s, with younger Millennials first.


Yeah... maybe that's why. New York is pretty much liberal over LGBT rights, even in the 2000s. I think back then, if we enjoyed something that was girly (e.g. Hello Kitty) then it might be considered as weird to boys. Although, I haven't gave a f*ck.

In the 2000s, swinging your hands while walking was gay. You had to put your hands in your pockets. The social attitudes of the 2000s were just nasty.


I remember people in middle school saying that you were gay if you wore the color purple because it represented Barney "the gay dinosaur". Yet nobody would say anything if you wore pink since they said tuff guys wear pink. How about your sports teams colored purple like LSU Tigers, Minnesota Vikings, or LA Lakers? I also hated it when people would play a game at the lunch table with their phones and would load up inappropriate photos on google images and tried to show it to you, and the rule was that if you accidentally looked at the bad or inappropriate photo you'd either be called "straight" or "gay" depending on what it was. I also hated it when gossip or rumors are spread around the school about a person who's being made fun of, and people are like "you don't ever talk to this person, and you don't ever put your eye on him, otherwise, you become gay and we don't talk to you no more." Every little thing caused people to get homophobic, and it made me homophobic for a while until I had to learn the hard way early in high school.

I lived in Toronto in the 2000s and it was still pretty bad. Probably not as bad as the South though, I still had a lot of friends, especially girls because they didn't care about that stuff. The whole macho culture seems to be a 2000s thing for the entire Western world. I think NewYorkEagle missed it because he was still a kid. I don't remember 'gay' being used an insult that much in the early 2000s, probably because I was still a kid at the time, but I'm sure if I were older I would have went through the same thing I did in the other two thirds of the decade.


I agree with this.  The early 2000s is when the homophobia started to get a lot worse.  It was the absolute worst in the mid 2000s, when I was in college.  The LGBT community at that time was starting to become more visible everywhere and I think the macho male culture was part of mainstream pop culture's backlash against it.  I am also sure hip-hop didn't help much.  The electropop era was when people finally started becoming more relaxed about things like sexuality and the stereotyping really started to decrease.

Dude, nobody has ever called me gay. Especially in the 2000s. Although, if this was about stuff that seemed girly (since that was another slang for gay), I honestly never even been antagonized for that sh*t. For instance, I've been into Hello Kitty since 2007, and barely ANYBODY said to me that it was weird in my face. I was just wondering why the stuff bchris02 said is considered gay, since I barely knew anything about LGBT culture when I was a kid.


Probably because you didn't start middle school until 2010. I didn't even know what the word gay was until I entered middle school in 2007, that's how irrelevant young kids care about that stuff throughout their peak innocent childhood in elementary school. Throughout the whole 2000's decade middle school and high school students had to go through hearing all the gay jokes and insults. Sadly, the people who were making fun of folks gay or homosexual ended up becoming homophobic themselves at some point, some even had family issues and took that stuff seriously.

One thing I like about the '10s is the greater acceptance of individualism and the decline of the homophobic "macho male" culture that prevailed throughout most of the 2000s.  In the '00s, you could be called gay for something as simple as ordering a craft beer instead of a Budweiser.  If you were male and had any sense of fashion you were considered gay, unless you were emo.  The more I think about it, the more I remember how much that any self-respecting heterosexual guy could NOT do during the 2000s that has nothing to do with sexuality at all, all because it was seen as gay.  Couldn't order a strawberry lemonade or any fruity cocktail.  Couldn't listen to anything but hip-hop or rock (dance/techno was a HUGE no-no and boy bands were even worse).  All clothes had to be 2 sizes too large, because clothes that fit were gay.  It was very difficult to remain secure in your sexuality last decade.  I am really glad most of that has gone by the wayside.

I didn't notice or remember any of that stuff. But there is no question LGBT is wayyy more accepted in the 10's than the 00's, which is definitely a positive thing about the 10's.

Yeah it was not good to be wearing bright colours in the mid-2000s. Purple, orange and yellow were off limits. I remember we had this other game called "the circle game". People would lift one leg up,  put their fingers in an O-shape (like you were saying things are a-okay), and put their hand below their leg. If you looked down and saw the "O", you were looking at an asshole, and you were gay, and the other person was allowed to beat you up. I took it lightly though, it was a pretty fun game ;D

This is correct.  If you were even suspected of being gay, nobody wanted anything to do with you.  I envy '90s-borns coming of age in this decade where it is okay to be a little bit different.


I envy those a few years younger than me as well. When I see people on here wishing they were Jordan's age or wishing they were born in the late 70s, I'm screaming hell no! inside. ;D I think my teenage years would have gone much better if I were born 10 years later, and not spending my teen years in the 2000s.

It isn't fully acceptable, but its better than it was in the 2000s.  In my area, you don't want to be open and out of the closet because homophobia is still a big problem here. What has really changed however is the hysteria straight people had regarding "appearing" gay.  I know some guys I graduated high school with who haven't moved on from that culture, but most people today won't object to going to the movies or a nice restaurant with a male friend, or wearing clothes that fit or ordering a craft beer or glass of wine.  Heterosexual guys wouldn't have been okay with that in the mid 2000s.  Most people no longer use "gay" as an insult, except for the jocks who are now 29 and 30 and haven't mentally moved past high school.

If you come out of the closet though and actually admit to being gay, it is still a problem in many parts of the country.

You guys are lucky you do not go to a all-guys Catholic High School.  ::) We still use some of that language even "gay" a little bit(and stylize it instead of "gay" its "gey"), though it seems like this senior class will be the last people to really be all about that, so goodie! :) There is a bit of a creepy undertone of homo-eroticism though.  :o Though I am not gay myself I am glad that using that word is phasing out with the seniors and a bit of the juniors. :)

I can tell you that even where I am, we are much more open to discussing many things, politics, the world and many other things. You are no longer considered gay for talking about your feelings a little bit(Kairos which I will go to  next year really helps with that as I have heard everyone even the macho cool guys cries by the end of it. Its a three day retreat where you open up to everyone.) The social cliques have relaxed a bit though they are still prevalent, you can sit down at any table pretty much.

Well we all know how toxic the youtube comments can be. I'd never look at those when I'm searching for good discussions since nearly all the users bring a whole new meaning to the word 'immature'. But yes over millions of people go on Youtube. Whether I think the community is toxic or not doesn't remove the fact that we still have tons of ignorant/prejudice people in this world.

I'm not sure about that. Prop 8 passed in California in 2008. I lived in a different country, but I was still devastated by the results. As for day to day living, I can't really comment but it might be better to get an actual gay person's input. I know a lot of Canadians who think homophobia died in 2003/2005 and that we were super enlightened long before that, but that is a complete whitewashing of history. Homophobia is still a thing to an extent,  to this very day. If you watch some movies like "Friends With Benefits" (terrible movie, released 2011), you can see that calling a character "gay" can be a way to emasculate someone. Basically the character is artsy and everyone calls him gay so he doesn't get any girlfriends. Most straight people wouldn't even notice that, but if you're gay you become hyper aware of these things.

Proposition 8 was actually the main factor that got me aware of LGBT politics. Up until the Yes on 8 commercials appearing on tv and especially the initiative passing, I didn't realize there was still such an embarrassing level of discrimination against gay people. Though I already knew I was trans for a few years, I didn't know much about gays or their place in society until that point; I actually attended a wedding in 2004 for my lesbian aunt with my family, so it seemed like it should be taken for granted that people of the same sex can fall in love and live together. But regardless, the upset passage of Prop 8 was pretty much what galvanized the LGBT movement into the productive juggernaut it has been in the 2010s because it opened so many eyes, not just my own.

I don't even live in the US, but I also remember Prop 8 getting heavy air time on the news in Canada, and it was a popular social media topic among kids in my class (like how Cecil the tiger became a hot topic, so did Prop 8). It was around that time I noticed homophobia becoming uncool and being progressive became trendy. It really opened up people's eyes to the plight of the LGBT community. I also agree with you that it was exactly at that moment when the LGBT rights movement kicked into hyperdrive, with a lot more activist feet on the ground. In 2010, Prop 8 was struck down and Don't Ask Don't Tell was repealed a few weeks later, the dominoes were starting to fall.

I'm not sure about that. Prop 8 passed in California in 2008. I lived in a different country, but I was still devastated by the results. As for day to day living, I can't really comment but it might be better to get an actual gay person's input. I know a lot of Canadians who think homophobia died in 2003/2005 and that we were super enlightened long before that, but that is a complete whitewashing of history. Homophobia is still a thing to an extent,  to this very day. If you watch some movies like "Friends With Benefits" (terrible movie, released 2011), you can see that calling a character "gay" can be a way to emasculate someone. Basically the character is artsy and everyone calls him gay so he doesn't get any girlfriends. Most straight people wouldn't even notice that, but if you're gay you become hyper aware of these things.
Yeah, that was awful when it passed. I remember watching the news when the anchorpeople announced it. It basically set us back to square one. It was weird since California is a liberal state. Maybe because there was Republican president ast the time.


I'm from the West Coast and I distinctly remember people at my school still using gay slurs as late as 12th grade (2010-2011).



I was living in Santa Cruz during the 2010-2011 school year, and kid were still using gay slurs there as well.


I'm not saying that no one was was barely using those slurs. Yes, there was still homophobia as did I hear it and it was negative, but it really wasn't as bad like in the south.

If you guys want to know, when I was in 7th grade, I was asked by someone on the bus if I was gay of if I liked guys (probably he witnessed me doing certain things that would perceive a person non-straight) and I unknowingly said yes.

I noticed this as well. As soon as those laws were gone, there began to be more acceptance. Oh and at my HS, there was a club for the LGBT and one of the days throughout the year they had a silence day where they would acknowledge those who have been  criticized for being LGBT.

Do you also think the music being electro-pop and the fashion being colorful changed the attitudes regarding LGBT?

Prop 8 vote took place on the same day as the 2008 election actually. It's so strange to think the same day that so many Democrats came out to vote for Obama, many also ticked off yes to outlawing same sex marriage.

My school had a gay straight alliance club. We didn't have a day of silence, but we did have "Day of Pink" where you wear a pink shirt to school, after a kid was bullied at school for wearing pink one day in the eastern part of Canada.

I don't read YouTube comments mostly, so I haven't noticed this much fortunately. More reason to stay away.

However, in positive news, the usage of the word has decreased significantly on Twitter over the years.

http://www.nohomophobes.com/#!/all-time/


It seems like most of the Youtube comments are dominated by teenagers. I've noticed this, because I remember commenting on Youtube back in 2008 & 2009 always feeling like the youngest one for awhile watching every Youtube video, whether it was a tag video, rant video, tutorial video, video gameplay, or nostalgic video. Now since I've graduated high school up to now I feel like the oldest one looking at Youtube comments. I think a lot of it depends on what you follow too. It seems like all of the college students spend time posting on blogs/websites like these or other mature sites instead of posting on Youtube with all the immaturity.

It was a close call, and a lot of people who voted yes did so on accident, but I think one of the key reasons the initiative passed is because a lot of California's liberal voter base is Hispanic, and while they tend to be economically progressive, a fair number of them are also catholic traditionalists who don't support things like same-sex marriage or abortions, even if they're registered Democrats. They're still way more open-minded than white southerners, and they've become a lot more progressive on LGBT issues in the past several years, but there definitely hasn't historically been the same foundation for LGBT movements within the Hispanic American community as there has for middle-upper class urban whites.

The city of Santa Ana, for example, had one of the highest turnouts for Barack Obama in Orange County, yet it also said yes on Prop 8 by 61.82% (they also had the highest yes percentage for the abortion-inhibiting Proposition 4); conversely, Newport Beach, a heavily affluent, white city, has generally tended to vote among the most heavily in favor of Republicans in the county, yet it also came alarmingly close to voting no on Prop 8, with only 51.52% of the population saying yes (they did vote no on Prop 4), higher only than Laguna Beach, Aliso Viejo, Irvine, Dana Point, and Costa Mesa in Orange County. Even some of the non-coastal suburban cities in Orange County, like Mission Viejo and Lake Forrest, voted more liberally on these initiatives than the predominantly Hispanic Santa Ana did. It's ironic that in many cases in California, the rich, stuffy, suburban Republicans have voted more progressively on social issues than the Democratic minority class, something that would not be the case in a state like Texas (excluding Austin). San Diego is pretty similar; wealthy suburbs like Scripps Ranch, Carlsbad, and Carmel Valley have voted far more liberally on gay marriage than the South Bay, which has a particularly high concentration of Hispanics, even though urban areas like North Park and Mission Hills, as well as parts of the North County Coast like Leucadia and Del Mar, are far more socially progressive still.

Ahhhh nice! And that's what it was called here as well.

And that's great. A day of pink would be a good idea here as well. That way, one for silence and one for pink.

Yeah, at least we killed it about 2 years later in 2010 and have gotten back on track especially with LGBT marriage being legal since last year.

And yeah, it was embarrassing  ;D. Oh also with regarding music, I listened to plenty of female artists back in the mid '00s such as Rihanna, Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, Shakira, Mariah Carey, and the singer Jojo and I wasn't afraid at all  :) ;D

That's true especially since most of the Hispanic population is here in this state. I have many friends who are Hispanic and they are definitely Catholics. As for the issues like abortion, I'm sure they're against it as some of them already have kids and would not trade them over for something better.

Now for your second statement, that's really weird. Despite this state being liberal, we seem to be in reverse with some issues compared to the south.

Of course there is still homophobia, just like there is still racism. I'm not sure these two types of bigotry can be compared though.

I can definitely see homophobia still huge, even in a year like 1995. Even the late 1990's was just the beginning of gays being accepted. Remember Ellen DeGeneres coming out in 1997? People were a bit cruel to her.

I remember GLBTS, etc, type groups being available at my brother's high school in the early 00's, like around 2002. I remember as the early 00's became the mid-00's, there were even more GLBTS groups being formed.

And the Matthew Shepard murder of 1998 is pretty scary stuff. I do feel that by the mid-00s, homosexuality is more acceptable than even in a year like 1999. Crazy how just a few years can make such a difference.

The funny thing is, I would still feel more comfortable in general, even as a lesbian, during the 2000s and maybe even the 90s, just for the fact that I would connect far better with others over just about everything else besides my sexuality. I'd rather be denied the right to marriage and have a fair number of people being openly uncomfortable with me, so long as I had a small trusting few who I got along well with, than to have the right to marry yet hardly anybody to really connect with on a personal level and thus nobody to marry anyway.

It's a lot like what JordanK1982 has said about the 1980s - the decade may have had a conformist facade, but there were still vibrant underground niche communities that weren't ruined by social media; it's very different from the 2010s, which profess themselves to be diverse yet are technically the most conformist time in several decades.

Why do you feel like you would have connected with others better in the 2000s?


It felt like there were more vibrant centers of expression, with online forums being far more popular than social media. Back in the 2000s, I was able to connect with others easily despite my starkly unique interests, thanks to active online communities that supported them. For DDR, I visited DDR Freak, DDREvolved, and Bemanistyle; for eurobeat music, I went to Eurobeat Prime. These websites are either now defunct or significantly less active, and it's hard to find many other forums like them where big ideas are actually embraced as opposed to groupthink social media centers. The mere fact that I still spend most of my online activity on an Internet board like this instead of Twitter or Instagram shows just how old school I am when it comes to the web.

Additionally, music and video games were a lot more diverse in the 2000s, not to mention social attitudes were mostly still pretty laid-back and not overly politically correct. There were still a fair number of video games and songs/albums that I was interested in during the 2000s or that I could connect with others over, though more so during the first half of the decade. Nowadays, everybody seems interested in the same junk, or at least predominantly stuff I have little interest in.

The constant use of homophobic slurs, especially by bros and jocks, was unfortunate, but at least you could still very much find your wonderland, even if you were a social outcast.

Stage 1: During the Decade we all hate it and look back on "the good old days"
Stage 2: Right after the decade there is a bit of backlash against the trends and new pop culture is established
Stage 3: A few years removed we start getting kind of nostalgic but not with overwhelmingly rosy glasses.
Stage 4: 5-10 years after the decade we start looking at the nostalgia in very rosy glasses.
Stage 5: Nostalgia becomes mainstream, "oh those were the days", "Dont you remember the N64, that was so much better than the XBOX 360!", "I want to go back to the 90s". Impacts the decades fashion slightly
Stage 6: The media plays into the nostalgia and everyone starts getting tired of the nostalgia, starts declining.
Stage 7: Whatever decade we were looking back on with rosy glasses becomes a distant memory, and with this we can look back on the decade with the best hindsight, a new decade nostalgia overtakes the older decade.

In 5-10 years we will look back on the 2010s with rosy glasses.

I think that has more to do with DDR dying out, rather than communities of that type dying out. This isn't the only forum I go on, there are actually two other ones I go on.  Though I can see what you mean with becoming less active. There's a possible chance that some have moved on to Reddit. Now I personally hate Reddit because I hate the stupid upvote system, and most the site is cancerous IMO, but it could be possible that the community moved there and that is why those forums you listed are less active, and Reddit is a good way for niche subcommunities to form.

I see what you mean about the video games/music. Some of the genres in the 2000s were better and possible non-existent in the 2010s. Although, in terms of video games, since I'm a huge Nintendo fanboy and we're becoming ever so rarer, whenever I take my 3DS out in public or see someone else playing one, I regularly get caught up in conversation with strangers talking about Nintendo things.  :o Although I can see from your perspective as a DDR fangirl, there aren't really as many people playing that game these days.

In the 2000s, swinging your hands while walking was gay. You had to put your hands in your pockets. The social attitudes of the 2000s were just nasty.


What universe did you guys live for the 2000s to be this bad!? I do not remember XXL clothing after 2003. Loose sh!tty faded jeans, yes but not anything too baggy like 90s-2003.


I hate that word man spreading, if I want to spread my legs then I will do so wherever and I don't care if my zipper is open.


Me too. It's just my way of showing my dominance as king of the animal kingdom over the cretins. If my zipper is open it's because I have the privileges the lowly peasants do not. 


I'm still stuck in the 00's. I wear a lot of dark black and baggy clothes and listen to early Eminem a lot.


I wish I was stuck in the 2000s. The pop culture in this decade just makes me miserable every day.


The only 00's I'm stuck in are 2000/2001/2002. Not even real 00's years.


I envy those a few years younger than me as well. When I see people on here wishing they were Jordan's age or wishing they were born in the late 70s, I'm screaming hell no! inside. ;D I think my teenage years would have gone much better if I were born 10 years later, and not spending my teen years in the 2000s. Although, if I were that young, I wouldn't be able to appreciate how good I have it.


Dude, my teen years were sick. I would love to live in 1995-2002 forever.

Yep, I definitely do. I remember low rise jeans being more of a provocative club fashion than anything else. Outside of clubs, I don't remember being them that common (maybe in the mid 00's they got more popular but I don't seeing them everywhere in 2000-2002). I don't think they've been popular since the late 00's.

Yeah, but it's not as common in 2005 anymore. There are more wings haircuts. 2005 is a lot less baggy than the early 00s! You did not have baggy dickies being worn anymore.

Probably because you didn't start middle school until 2010. I didn't even know what the word gay was until I entered middle school in 2007, that's how irrelevant young kids care about that stuff throughout their peak innocent childhood in elementary school. Throughout the whole 2000's decade middle school and high school students had to go through hearing all the gay jokes and insults. Sadly, the people who were making fun of folks gay or homosexual ended up becoming homophobic themselves at some point, some even had family issues and took that stuff seriously.

Honestly, Nas's Hip Hop is Dead from 2006 was when I first understood gay was. ;D ;D ;D  It's only because I misunderstood the lyrics. ;D ;D ;D ;D

The best part about the 2010's are the mainstream movies and TV shows. It keeps getting better and better. Music is still ok for me but hit or miss.

The political, lifestyle and worldly culture with Donald Trump, the riots, shootings by the police, ISIS, gun control, social media always growing & becoming more sensitive each day, etc. are the worst things about the 2010's.

I actually miss the early 2010's a lot more than I thought I would, but I'd still take the late 2000's any day over late 2014-present.

I feel like the 10's are darker than the 00's. But that's probably because I was a kid in the 00's so it felt more upbeat.

It depends on what part of the 00s you're talking about. But yeah, the recent 2010s are MUCH darker than the late 00s; that's for sure. And they're even darker than the early-mid 00s.

Nah, even if it's a little below the waist. As long as you see the underwears, it's saggin (taggin... baggin... raggin... ).

I remember a lot of tuff Pop Punkers sagged their dickies in the early 00s. I never did, though. I thought it was stupid.

2003-2006 were the most somber parts of the new millennium to me. From the Iraq War to the Israel-Lebanon war and the Madrid train bombings, "Operation Iraqi Freedom", 2004 election, Asian Tsunami, London bombings, South Asian earthquake in between. I made a post about this in another thread, I'll look for it. The 2010s are more angry rather than afraid, like the 2000s are.

Edit: yeah, these are my thoughts on 2003-2007


Back in the day, I thought the mid 00s were pretty upbeat to me.... as a black boy! We had the housing market bubble, crank and snap rap, over the top funny comedies, etc. The VERY late 00s felt the most somber to me;( probably because I was in late grade school); but the economy went to sheesh, MJ died, my Rams REALLY sucked during this time as well.

No, because the pants are below the underwear stretchy waist so it's still sagging. That kid is most definitely not cool; reading is interview answers made me wanna punch the dweeb in the face.

All the wars, high oil prices, natural disasters in the mid-2000s made me depressed, it felt like every time I turned the news on there would be hundreds of more dead people. I can see why you find the mid-2010s depressing, but really these social problems existed in the 2000s as well, they're only on the forefront of people's minds because social media and camera phones made it easy to expose police brutality, which resulted in public anger we see today. It's wrong to say police brutality and racism didn't exist in the 2000s though.

Pokémon is the greatest kid fad to have ever existed. Jelly? I played NES, but Atari was better tbh. I caught Degrassi on reruns. 1994 kids had it better.

Not my grandpa. He looks like a goofball. He tells me I look stupid but I don't think he's ever looked at himself in the mirror.

Not really. Pokemon was super lame. You think the Atari is better than the NES!?!?! The best thing about Atari is the band it inspired! 1994 kids grew up in a garbage post-2003 world.

That's you. You're a full communist. Maybe if you stopped being stubborn and agreed with the facts I preach then you will be freed from Richard's scummy soviet hands.

If you're grandpa dresses like the dudes on the first page then he's 10/10.

Pokémon was the greatest, everybody knows Pikachu and Herman Cain used the Pokémon theme song for his campaign not the TMNT one. Facts. I had both an NES and an Atari, but I preferred the Atari it had great SHMUPs.

1994 kids are young adults in the 2010s, which means they are happier on average than someone born 1982.  8) 94ers are the same age now in sweet 2016 as you were in lame 2004 :P

The 2010s are only better than 2004 by a 0.5 margin. 2016 isn't glorious like 1996 is. ;) 2004 is lame, though. 2000/2001/2002 for life.

I started watching Family Guy in 2003 when Dragon Ball GT came on. I started watching Teletoons instead which had The Detour (adult swim) at that time slot. There was The Oblongs, Family Guy and Futurama. My 1994 born brother watched it then too. Damn, that makes him more Xtreme than you. He watched Family Guy before you did.  8)

It depends on what part of the 00s you're talking about. But yeah, the recent 2010s are MUCH darker than the late 00s; that's for sure. And they're even darker than the early-mid 00s.


Politically, they are darker than the 2000s. Especially with this year's election. I know that the 2000s could be defined with George Bush Jr's presidency, but the economy was alright for most of it (2001-2006/7).

That's awful :( I'll concede the 2010s are worse in Europe. Whenever I turn on the French news, I have to cognitively disassociate as much as possible because otherwise I get depressed. Terrorist attacks, rise of fascism, Euro crisis, refugee influx, François Hollande etc. The news over there is rarely positive, and this attack isnt helping :(

I'm always ready to update my Spotify playlist every month based off the billboard charts or non-mainstream/alternative music that are really good.

I think I have had a better experience this decade than you have (you are around the same age as me as well so we have similar experiences.) 2011-2013 were years of great change and hardship, especially 2013. 2014-present has been an improvement. 2014 was the best year of the decade for me. 2015 was the third and 2016 so far has been very good.

I sort of hope there is a backlash against the PC culture that has been prevalent since 2013, it is getting to the point were it is getting very annoying. The pop culture improved a bit in 2015 but still, not as good as some of decades past.

Because sometimes google can be really inaccurate, even the GPS on my phone too. There were many times when the GPS on my phone led me to the wrong place, a more dangerous route, or took the longer way when I knew a shorter way to get to my destination.

Early '00s had tons of '90s stuff around. I remember visiting a Gamestop in 2002 and still seeing PS1 and N64 games (probably since the N64 and PS1 were still availabe in stores at the time). And most of the movies at my local blockbuster were  90's movies (whether on VHS or DVD). I'd walk into the store and see a VHS copy of A Goofy Movie on the shelves. Fashion was similar (for the most part). Sound of music was somewhat similar (depending on the genre). Tech was somewhat similar.

As for the 2010s if there is one thing that I like about this decade internet wise is the memes. Nothing more then random images with funny captains. Do to having a strange sense of humor where literally anything can make me laugh I have taken a liking to them (I have childlike humor in an adult body)

I do hate how memes are used to advertise products to the general public, though. I'd prefer them to just stay as simple internet jokes. Now I'm not sure how everyone else feels about memes as I've actually seen a lot of people who do not like them.

In Canadian politics, I really like the second half of this decade. Justin Trudeau is our Prime Minister, tuition is going to be free for low-income families starting next year, my city's mayor is urbanist and building subways, LRTs, and bus lanes. It's left-wing paradise.

edit: the best thing is that there are no elections until 2018/2019. In 2016 and 2017 I'm not reading any newspapers! I can just sit back and relax and trust that the country is in good hands.  ;D

This very much.


I like the movies and television ain't that bad. Music? It's better than mid-00s music, but it could still be a lot better.

Must not have listened to much mid-00s music if you think slothy, uninspired pop is better than conscious, creative music back then.

Yes, these communist PC SJW 90's nostalgic bronies from useless social media like Tumblr, Instagram, Snapchat and Vine are the ones that are ruining this decade. I hope this doesn't carry over to the 2020's and people should be nostalgic for better 2010's things such as music rather than these useless stuff in the 2030's. Had these bad things never existed, the 2010's would have been a far better decade and I would rather have true 1990's kids doing a 1990's revival in the 2010's instead of false 1990's kids who like to pretend that they hate the future.

Must not have listened to much mid-00s music if you think slothy, uninspired pop is better than conscious, creative music back then.


Mid 00's and 2010's music are both for the dogs. If you ask me, it's 2000/2001/2002 where the gold is. ;)

2011 was a decent year for pop. It's probably the last full year that I can actually consider "good," although 2013 isn't far behind. You had some great hits such as "The Edge of Glory," "Someone Like You," "E.T.," "Mr. Saxobeat," and even "Party Rock Anthem." It was definitely an overall step down from 2009 and 2010, however.

The Dark Age was late 60s to the late 2000s. I'm scared that we'll enter another 40 year dark age, but it will most likely be a Gilded Age of sorts.

The golden age of fashion is clearly the late 70's to early 00's. C'mon, you can make stuff up but if you look at the facts you'll see the truth. ::)

No, it's the YouTube comment communities theory, though. Dude, I was watching Right Now and the song is alright but I forgot how much I hated his haircut. He's, like, 40 with 16 year old girl hair! Simple Plan is much better than SR-71. Stronger hooks and melodies on No Pads ("I Won't Be There" smokes any SR-71 song). Also, that Nu Metal album they made sucked. I listened to it today and it sounds like some whiny Linkin Park bootleg. I'm surprised there was no rap or DJ'ing.

Simple Plan is super cheesey. I'm surprised you were in your 20s when you heard them. I thought it was targetted at us 9-12 year olds. That's why it's called "I'm Just A Kid", not "I'm Just An Adult"!

Late 70's disco looks much cooler than your hipster skinny jeans! You also had rad dickies and 3/4 shorts, too! ;)

Yeah but so is SR-71! Like, you listen to the first SR-71 and he's bitching about something. You listen to the second SR-71 and again he's bitching about something but this time it's Nu Metal bitching which is worse than Pop Punk bitching! I was 19 when I heard them 'cause that album came out in March. Didn't turn 20 until late that year. How could I not like it, though? It was "recommended for fans of blink-182". Didn't even care if the lyrics were super cheesy, either, (TOYPJ came out the year before and it's lyrics are just as bad) 'cause it had good hooks! A lot of people my age were into Simple Plan along with the other Pop Punk bands like New Found Glory and Sum 41.

The 2000s had 2000, 2001, 2002 whereas The 2010s have no good years. Overall the real 00s are just as awful as today... 8-P


Simple Plan were unknowns until 2002. Don't be an early 90s Guy about this :P

2000/2001 are good, but 2010 smokes 2002. 2010 is when even people on the news were talking about "pop music as an art form" when Lady Gaga came out. It was objectively good. Also there are degrees of bad. 2013 was boring, but I don't think I'll ever live through a year as atrocious and vapid as 2005 ever again.

Everybody knew who Simple Plan was in 2000! ;D

Dude... No... Stop... 2000, 2001 and 2002 are all the same thing so if you think 2010 smokes one, you think 2010 smokes all of them (it does not, though. 2010 was lame). It's not objectively good, however, and Lady Gaga was also lame. You want objectively good? That title goes to the 80's! Duh! ::) We agree on one thing: 2005 was a black hole of boring nothingness. My god, what an awful year. Fall Out Boy, Panic at the Disco, Warped Tour 2005, wing haircuts... 8-P

2002 was 6th gen era gaming. That hive doesn't have as much nostalgia honey as 2000.

Stop listing why 2005 was a half decent year  ;D It was that reality TV show, GTA clone, John Cena, ringtone rap, whale tail, George Bush, PSP era that makes it suffocating.

Nope, the 2000s were the greatest decade ever. When were you born? Most people born in the mid 90s like myself like the 2000s because we grew up in them.

Yeah, but no 5th Gen games came out in 2002. 5th Gen was arguably in its peak in 2000. 2002 is pure 6th gen and Mario Party 4 ruined my childhood. That game was atrocious. No one wanted to come to my house to play that  :\

GTA is decent but not GTA clones. How is that any better than the FPS ad nauseum we have today.

Well, yeah...

So the very last best selling PS1 game, Yu Gi Oh, didn't come out in 2002? What about Harry Potter: The Chamber of Secrets? Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 (N64) and 4 (PS1)? Digimon? Delta Force? C-12? Dexter's Lab? Those are all 5th gen games from 2002. :P 5th Gen was not at all at it's peak in 2000. 1997-1999 was it's peak whereas 2000 was all about the PS2 build up. I dunno about Mario Party 4, I never played that one but I do know that Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4 was really rad. You should of invited them over to play that! It had 4 players. ;) Wait never mind. It only had two players. Whatever, you guys should of taken turns. :P

You mean like True Crime? That was a fun game! There is more variety in GTA clones than in FPS games but I see your point. GTA is still a lot of fun to play, regardless. Call of Duty is not.

GTA clones and the original GTA games were the sh*t back in the 2000s. It was like real life, but with PS2/Xbox graphics. Hell, even the radio stations were amazing. My favorite ones were from Vice City, San Andreas, and Liberty City Stories.

I only played Digimon out of those. 5th Gen was old news by 2002. 2000 had Mario Party 2, it's by default my favourite video game year lol. It also had Pokémon Stadium, Majora's Mask, Pokémon Gold and a lot of others.

I liked the first True Crime, but only because I was a horny 12 year old. The second in New York was god awful.

If it was old news it wouldn't still have a best selling 5th gen game now would it. ::) If you google "Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4" which just so happened to be released October 23, 2002 what is the first photo that pops up on the side? The PS1 photo, that's what. It's obvious to me what's important here. 5th and 6th gen were in harmony for the first three years of the 00s. ;) 2000-2002 are all equal in my mind. Each of them had good games to offer that brought me lots of enjoyment like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4. :P

Streets of LA from 2003? Oh yeah, that game was rad! I haven't played New York in a while but I don't remember it sucking. What was wrong with it?

The 2000's nor the 2010's were the greatest decades ever, it's an opinion depending on what type of pop culture you liked or followed at the time. I'm a mid 90's baby too but a year younger than you, and I loved 2002-2006 (my peak childhood) the best whether it was because of the kid culture or my personal life.

I know many people near our age who are enjoying this decade better because they didn't have a good childhood. Their kid years could have been traumatizing due to family issues and history which makes them try to forget it. Some adults when they were kids were in a foster home or were poor, so they didn't have the same privileges like some of us had growing up. So as they get older some can handle a lot more freedom being out of the house away from their parents or they prefer the pop culture of this decade over the previous one, like the TV shows, music, fashion, sports, or movies. Although, not everybody can handle the freedom being away from their parents due to not being responsible with their job, college, or payments so it can be stressful. Therefore like you said it can be tough decisions to make.

Personally, I think the comic book shows/movies and sports culture of this decade have been amazing, but the political, lifestyle, and social media sites being so strong are the suckish part about this decade. Music rotates. Music depending on your favorite genre will always have up and down years.

PS1 is irrelevant. Want to know why there's so much N64 nostalgia on the Internet but zero PS1 nostalgia except for FF7? All the cool kids had an N64 and there were no N64 games in 2002 . The nerdy kids bought these nerdy Yugioh and Harry Potter games but it's old news.  In 2002 it was all PS2/Gamecube/Xbox. :P

The True Crime games are all terrible. It was just more obvious in the New York one :P

PS2, GameCube, the original XBOX, and Game Boy Advance were the biggest gaming systems in 2002.

Regardless of how much you focusing on incoming 6th-gen influences during the early years and leftover games in 2002, they're still definitely not totally the same. I was an active gamer since 1998, and I can speak from personal experience that the gaming industry changed drastically in 2001, to the point where 2002 seemed like a totally different time. I still often came back to Star Fox 64 and Donkey Kong 64 a lot well after 2001, but that didn't mean I thought it still felt like 1999.

Fair enough. I'd already bought the Dreamcast in '99 and the PS2 at launch when it came out in 2000 so I'd already experienced the newness of the 6th gen early on yet I played both the 5th/6th and bought recent titles for the PS1 up until 2003-ish. Aside from that, I can see how the final establishments of the 6th gen with the Gamecube and Xbox made things feel a lot different to other people. To me, the early 6th gen games felt like updated versions of the 5th (with the PS1 still ongoing) so it felt like one fluid thing as gaming was still diverse and more than FPS this and FPS that.

To me, the early 6th gen games felt like updated versions of the 5th (with the PS1 still ongoing) so it felt like one fluid thing as gaming was still diverse and more than FPS this and FPS that.


Yeah, from a gameplay standpoint, the sixth generation isn't a huge one-up from the fifth. Even though, Super Smash Bros. Melee felt like a huge improvement over the original for the N64 – it still feels more sophisticated than most new games today, despite being released closer to 1987 than to today – while the first Halo certainly set a lot of the foundations for what would later turn into dudebro culture, quickly replacing GoldenEye 007 as the multiplayer FPS pizza party game of the day. Still, at least in the early 2000s, there was still as much variety as there was in the late 90s, and gaming culture hadn't degenerated into the Fight Club it would be by the seventh generation. Pretty much the entire period from about 1997-2002 felt like one large golden era for gaming, in my opinion.

1998-2001 was my gaming prime as well. I'd throw 2002 in, but I was playing mostly Mêlée that year, a 2001 game, and a lot of the Gamecube games that came out that year were inferior to their N64 counterparts.

Oh yeah, definitely. Melee was everything great about the first one with it's sense of adventure and how true it was to the spirit of Smash/Nintendo but with much more features and characters and the advantage of the Gamecube. I still think Halo was a pretty great game. Maybe in the context of today, people might look back and say "man, screw Combat Evolved! It started all this FPS crap!" but during the time it came out, it was just a fun game. I can totally get on board with 1997-2002 being a golden age! I miss the days when there were games for everyone. Franchises like Tony Hawk, Halo, DDR, Smash Bros., Ratchet and Clank, Kingdom Hearts, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, Need for Speed were all big things yet there was something different about each one of them that would attract all kinds of people.  Even today, I go back to my PS1 and PS2 (or even N64, GC, XBOX) games and there's still something special about them.

You should throw in good ol' 2002... :-\\

From a Playstation dude's viewpoint, the PS2 was much better than the PS1. Everything good about the PS1 was improved with the PS2. I also had the Gamecube and the games felt roughly on the same par as the N64 in terms of quality and enjoyment. On a side note: Some of the early 6th gen games graphics still look like N64/PS1 games. ;D

The 2000's nor the 2010's were the greatest decades ever, it's an opinion depending on what type of pop culture you liked or followed at the time. I'm a mid 90's baby too but a year younger than you, and I loved 2002-2006 (my peak childhood) the best whether it was because of the kid culture or my personal life.

I know many people near our age who are enjoying this decade better because they didn't have a good childhood. Their kid years could have been traumatizing due to family issues and history which makes them try to forget it. Some adults when they were kids were in a foster home or were poor, so they didn't have the same privileges like some of us had growing up. So as they get older some can handle a lot more freedom being out of the house away from their parents or they prefer the pop culture of this decade over the previous one, like the TV shows, music, fashion, sports, or movies. Although, not everybody can handle the freedom being away from their parents due to not being responsible with their job, college, or payments so it can be stressful. Therefore like you said it can be tough decisions to make.

Personally, I think the comic book shows/movies and sports culture of this decade have been amazing, but the political, lifestyle, and social media sites being so strong are the suckish part about this decade. Music rotates. Music depending on your favorite genre will always have up and down years.

Okay but the 2000s were still the best decade ever!

For me, the best is 1993-2002 which are my teen-young adult years. The events that happened during those 9 years shaped my tastes and interests; each one of them is definitive to me and I still look back upon them and the memories fondly to this day (despite the sandwich throwing that may or may not have occurred ;)). I can even through in 2003 because it was pretty good, too.

The Nintendo 64 was definitely more successful and more mature than the GameCube, however the GameCube mostly had better/higher quality games when it came to the specific Nintendo franchises. Not all of them though. Most of the crowd believes it goes like this with the Mario/Smash Bros. games.

Mario Kart Double Dash >>> Mario Kart 64

Super Mario 64 >>> Super Mario Sunshine

Super Smash Bros. Melee >>> Super Smash Bros. (original)

The Wii Mario platform games were better than both what the N64 and GameCube offered but the direction the Wii went in with the motion controls appealing to the casual audience and a lot of its games being too kiddy/watered down was a huge weakness. Nintendo is just way too predictable nowadays.

Talking about the seventh generation, the 7th gen was as much diverse as the 5th and the 6th gen for games, unlike how most people perceive about the 7th gen being mostly shooters.

During the 7th gen, you still had:

Assassin's Creed 1, 2, Brotherhood and Revelations
Band Hero
Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
Battleblock Theater
Bayonetta
Burnout Paradise
Castle Crashers
Crash of the Titans

Dark Souls
DJ Hero 1 and 2
Fable Anniversary, II and III
Forza Motorsport 2, 3 and 4
Gran Turismo 5 and 6
Guitar Hero II, III, World Tour, 5 and Warriors of Rock
Kinect Sports
The Last of Us
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
LittleBigPlanet 1 and 2
Mario Kart Wii
Need for Speed Carbon, ProStreet, Undercover, Shift, Nitro, and Hot Pursuit
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Portal 1 and 2
Ratchet & Clank Tools of Destruction, Quest for Booty, A Crack in Time and Into the Nexus
Rock Band 1, 2 and 3
Skate 1, 2 and 3
Street Fighter IV
Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
The Sims 3
Viva Pinata 1, Party Animals and Trouble in Paradise
Wii Fit
Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort

None of the 7th gen games that I listed above are shooters. So yes, the 7th gen had that much diversity and not just too many dudebro shooters.

I don't feel like much of a h8r today, so I don't have the energy to list everything I hate about the 2000s, but my older post in this thread summarizes why I hated 2005 at least.

"Stop listing why 2005 was a half decent year  ;D It was that reality TV show, GTA clone, John Cena, ringtone rap, whale tail, George Bush, PSP era that makes it suffocating."

I wanna add popped collars and dudebros to the list! Terrible year.

I play video games when I go to my friends' houses or they come over to mine, but I don't really follow video games anymore or consider myself an enthusiast. I'm completely out of the loop!

I don't mind SJWs, but my interaction with them has been extremely limited as to be nonexistent. Technology zombifying actually started in 2004/2005, I should add that to the list. MMOs (World of Warcraft) and cellphone culture really took off that year. Gaming is terrible, I agree with you there. There were many decent releases in 2010/2011, but I've been out of the loop since. Movies are actually one of my favourite things this decade  :o I've been going to the theatres about 5-6 times a year which is impressive considering in 2007 I thought theatres would be dead by the next decade. But hey, we all have our favourite genres (I'd say horror, action, animation, and kid-friendly are my favourite).

Most of the games listed were mostly from the first half of the 7th generation. I do agree that there was definitely diversity at that time; however, the gaming industry was already taking a nosedive because of:


Unnecessary DLC and micro-transactions

More interest on graphics than gameplay

Games becoming less diverse overtime

More focus on online gaming rather than local (many games today now only have offline single-player and online multiplayer)

No bonus or hidden unlockables

Games are not exploring anymore, but rather restraining

The hype for games that are supposed to be awesome are actually lackluster than expected



I prefer 7th Gen to 6th Gen to be honest, but 7th Gen was mostly shooters and dudebros games. (so was the 6th gen but a lot of people here don't wanna hear it, 5th Gen was the last Gen where people didn't associate the games you played with your personality/subculture).
No, it wasn't. There was absolutely more diversity in gaming. There wasn't many dudebro games like today. Furthermore, the shooters of the 5th and 6th generations were totally different from the ones of today.

I consider the release of GTA: San Andreas to be the official start of the dudebro gaming era. I don't see how GTA clones are any less dudebro than first person shooters, personally. The diversity by then was already lacking. The 2005 video game sales charts are a 15 year old teenage boy's wet dream.

Were PSPs that awful?  I agree that cellphone culture started around that time, but the contrast between then and now is significant.

PSP got better after 2007 when Crisis Core, Phantasy Star, and many other Japanese RPGs came out for it (in an era when they were going extinct on consoles). But in 2004-2006 it was an awful system. It actually exemplifies mid-2000s dudebro culture perfectly. The system had watered down PS2 ports but teenagers bought it in droves simply because all the advertisements said you were cool if you bought it. When GTA Liberty City Stories came out and was as mediocre as any non-dudebro expected it, that's around the time the disillusionment with it settled in. After that people only used their PSPs for porn. It was a huge waste of money for most people, I still pick on a few of my friends for buying it (and picking on me for not buying one).

My cousin attempted suicide in 2006 because her parents took her phone away because of the crazy charges she racked up. We were deep into cellphone addiction culture, and teens addicted to their phones was already a huge trope by then. I agree though, it's even worse now. But when people hate on kids today for being on their phone I can't help but roll my eyes because people said the same thing about our generation. They'll be fine.

Haha, that's good that you're more open minded when it comes to movies. I'm surprised you can't find anything that caters to your tastes though. I mean this year we've had Zootopia, Jungle Book and Deadpool, all great movies, and we're only 4 months in! And that's just the ones I've watched! ;D

Doesn't sound like bootleg anything to me, sounds straight out of the 2010s. I actually got it when I played the Neon Trees radio on Spotify :P

It's total bootleg Pop Punk. How can one even call post-2004 Pop Punk when it sounds nothing like it? Makes no sense to me! It's like a bad Pop music with sissy jumps and no frosted tips or spiky hair.

They sound like every other Pop Punk band during the good ol' days (which is a good thing 'cause that sound rules) but his voice sounds a lot like Jared's. The second SR-71 album is definitely bootleg Linkin Park, though.

So you agree with me, it's not post-2004 pop punk, it's its own thing. It's not post anything. 2010s rock is 2010s rock. I'd call it pop rock if anything, it doesn't sound punk at all.

I only listened to the first album, and Tomorrow off the second one. They sound pop punk, but they add their own sound to it. I I could see them being half successful if they made music in the 2010s :P

Actually, yeah, I totally agree with that statement. At least 2000-2003 Pop Punk still had some roots to the older Punk sound, the newer stuff isn't really influenced by that sound.

I've listened to both. There's still three or four Pop Punk tracks off Tomorrow but the rest of it is bitchy Nu Metal where he cries about his dad being mean to him and how his ugly girlfriend is a cold hearted bitch. The first one is good stuff, though. The singer is very successful; he's written songs for Demi Livatto and other sh!t. Won grammies, too. SR-71 themselves would have to overhaul their sound completely to be successful in the 2010's, if you ask me.

The 2010's have definitely been a really good decade IMO. Aside from all the shootings and political stuff, which are the negatives of the 2010's, there has been great music, technology, TV shows, fashion, movies, etc. Inthe00s is a nostalgia forum so of course, many people on this forum are not going to like the 2010's, because they're usually stuck in the past and are dying for a cultural shift to happen at any moment. But people need to realize that this decade and its culture will never ever come back in the future, so its best to enjoy it while it's here because we only have a year left until the 2010's are officially over, and you may even miss the 2010's even if you didn't like it back then.

This is probably an unpopular opinion but I feel like every decade since the 50s has been progressively getting better and better, aka every decade is better than the one that came before it and so on. So yeah, even with all of the 2010s' flaws, I wouldn't want to live in any other time period than the present. Also, I know the people here tend to be biased against modern music, but 2015-present is one of my favorite eras for music of all time. I think a lot of the hate for today's music comes from what's on the radio, and all I have to say to that is: expand your horizons. I don't listen to a single song from the radio, it's honestly all trash and the staleness is actually depressing. Stop defining 2010s music by the manufactured trash on the radio. I've noticed that's a trend here.

To be honest, this entire decade besides 2010 - 2012 was very solid and good for me. 2010 - 2012 was the only bad and depressing period of my life. 2013 - 2018 were all very solid years and I am quite grateful to live through this decade and experienced my early 20s (as well as ages 18 and 19). I'm gonna try to complain less about things from now on, 2018 is actually also going good for me. But yeah if it weren't for the early 2010s, which was the worst period of my life, this decade would be pretty much flawless.

There's a LOT less bigotry this decade and that alone makes it better than any other decade IMO. Plus, everything from medicine to technology is so advanced compared to other decades.


Less bigotry? Are you serious? If anything there's more bigotry in the 2010s, than there was in the 90s and 00s. In the 2010s, you've gotten all these groups trying to push all these identity politics, and causing more division between groups than has been seen in a long time. Sure, things weren't perfect in the previous two decades, but at least people were aiming to be individuals and NOT apart of some victims group. On one hand, you have these SJWs who try to make it seem like everyone can be divided into the "oppressor" and the "oppressed". In their eyes, individual experience/thought does not exist. In their eyes, if you belong to "X" group you are oppressed, and if you belong to "Y" group, you are privileged, regardless of your personal individual experience.

Of course you also have identity politics on the other side of the extreme, with the Alt-Right, who peddle white identity politics. BOTH sides are ruining race relations. I'm speaking as a minority myself. I felt more in place in the 00s, when people treated me as an individual. Nowadays, especially living in the Bay Area, I keep getting fed all this victim-hood crap by these idiots who feel the need to "speak for me". I never considered myself "marginalized" due to my race, because I always saw myself as an individual with individual experiences. I never felt my "perspective" was different due to my race either. That too was on an individual basis. Sure, I've had bad things happen to me, but they almost always had NOTHING to do with race. Now of course, I'm not saying it's the same for other people who happen to be the same race as me. But that's my point that experience is purely individual. And by pushing this "oppressor/oppressed" narrative, these SJWs are not making things better for me or any of the groups they represent. All they're doing is taking part in the dividing of people by race, gender, sexual orientation, etc., and adding fuel to the fire that is the Alt-right/Neo Nazis.

Funny thing, is that once these so-called "accepting" progressive types meet someone who happens to be apart minority, but does not act in the way they think minorities should (ie., they support right-leaning candidates, they don't actively practice their culture, they relate to people even if they are not from the same racial group, etc.), they accuse them of being "ashamed", or being victims of "internalized-racism" or whatever other crap they pull out of their first year sociology courses that they constantly parrot off. The idea that someone of a certain race, gender, or sexual orientation can be an individual is somehow shocking to them. I know I've probably pissed off several people on here, but I don't care. This has really been frustrating me for a while, and it really bothers me when people claim that the 2010s are "the most accepting decade ever". It's also one of the reason's why the Bay Area has gone to complete hell.

The 2010s isn't by any means the greatest decade ever and it definitely wasn't perfect. The craziness of the decade has been stressful at times, with it's peak being in the mid 2010s. However, it's undeniable that some of the best music ever has come out this decade. Music is the most significant part of pop culture to me, so it's been amazing an decade as far as that goes. There have been some pretty good tv shows as well. I'm glad I got to spend my young adult years in this decade so that I could truly experience it in it's entirely.

The idea that someone of a certain race, gender, or sexual orientation can be an individual is somehow shocking to them. I know I've probably pissed off several people on here, but I don't care. This has really been frustrating me for a while, and it really bothers me when people claim that the 2010s are "the most accepting decade ever". It's also one of the reason's why the Bay Area has gone to complete hell.

Also, this post is bogus. You can speak for yourself but there are far too many things to address in this long essay.

No way. It's probably one of the worst decades out there, only behind the 30s and 40s probably. And probably the 1910s.

To be honest, this entire decade besides 2010 - 2012 was very solid and good for me. 2010 - 2012 was the only bad and depressing period of my life. 2013 - 2018 were all very solid years and I am quite grateful to live through this decade and experienced my early 20s (as well as ages 18 and 19). I'm gonna try to complain less about things from now on, 2018 is actually also going good for me. But yeah if it weren't for the early 2010s, which was the worst period of my life, this decade would be pretty much flawless.


It is the exact opposite for me: once 2012 went, everything went downhill.

Is that really the first thing you comment when coming to this thread?

In terms of bigotry this decade vs the 90s or 2000s, I think it depends on the situation and there are some tradeoffs.  As a gay man I am speaking primarily in terms of LGBT rights.  As a white person I can't speak first-hand regarding the struggles of racial minorities.  From my experience at the macro level (at least in the US) this is a very stressful time to be anything but white, heterosexual, and fundamentalist Christian.  The extreme right-wing religious people are in complete control.  They are angry about the progress made over the past several decades, especially when it comes to things such as LGBT rights.  They are out for blood and anybody who is any kind of sexual, religious, or racial minority needs to be concerned about where we are at in America right now.  The people in power believe that America is a nation for white straight Christians and ONLY white straight Christians. It wouldn't take much to make A Handmaid's Tale a reality and that is the exact society 40% of Americans really want to see.

With that said, I think there has never been a better time to be openly gay and this is the first decade where transgender people started to become more visible.  There is still a lot of hate out there but at the individual level I don't notice as much homophobia as I did in the 2000s. 

In terms of racial bigotry, like I said I cannot speak on this first hand but I have never seen it more mainstream than it is right now.  There's so much hatred surrounding things like #BlackLivesMatter and NFL players taking a knee.  I've also never seen so much hatred against Latinos and Muslims are there is right now.  Not even after 9/11 was there as much anti-Muslim sentiment.  It really is like we are back in the 1950s/early 1960s.  People are angry about having had a black President for eight years and its one of the many reasons it seems like this country has lost its mind.

It's very true. Being a gay white/latino mixed man I was happy where things were going under Obama with gay rights and I feel like with Trump he's wanting us to go backwards, back to the 1950s. With racism I didn't see it last Decade until Obama won the election of '08 and now fast forward to '18 and racist are coming out thanks to Trump. I'm hoping things will change in the next year or next decade.
