Subject: What was your favourite 2010s year?

Written By: Early2010sGuy on 01/29/19 at 9:31 am

For me, it would either be 2016 or 2012. 2016 was such a fun year, and also known as the peak of 2010s culture, as you had good music, ranging from EDM to Trap music, and with pop, you had artists like Drake, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Rihanna, etc., and EDM was so big, with the Chainsmokers, Calvin Harris, and Zedd. Games like GTA 5, Overwatch, and Roblox were popular, with PC Gaming overtaking console’s popularity. Trap music still sounded colorful and diverse, with Trap pop songs like Don’t let me down, Hotline Bling, and lots more. On the hip hop trap side, you had artists like Drake, Kevin Gates, and Schoolboy Q being popular. Movies like the force awakens, Deadpool, Zootopia, and Suicide Squad (It got bad reviews but it was still a fun movie to watch nonetheless), were popular.

Anyway, enough with the talk, what was your favourite 2010s year?

2015

That was the year I met Lee, and everything started going well for me. That Summer was so fun! I spent lots of time with my mom. Then in the Fall I met Lee. I still remember our first date!  :)

2018, 2012, 2010, 2014/5 (these two years blend together in my mind). Okay, I have too many favourite years ;D

For me, 2013/4 blend together and are easily the most similar years this decade.

So many times. Haha 2010-2011 was the highlight of my comfort zone but 2015-2016 and 2017 were just as, if not more quality for me. I'm starting to lean more towards the mid 2010s everyday.

The only correct respond at "blending together" is 2017 and 2018 I fear :-\\

Anyway, my favorite year overall is 2015, just a perfect combination of great personal life and great pop culture ;D

2012 is a highlight as a high school year, and 2013 a highlight for music (didn't end very well though school-wise :()

The year I wish I appreciated more was 2013, but unfortunately that spring semester my junior year was a tough time for my personal life and the summer afterwards. I liked Fall 2013 tho. 2014 was underrated and underappreciated, I'd go back to that year in a heartbeat. I really liked the whole first half of the 2010's TBH. 2015 was okay but not my favorite. 2016 was asinine. 2017 was a lot of fun, my first full year at 21 had a lot of fun moments, including my favorite teams having great seasons and transferring to KSU. 2018 was a bit of a disappointment, a year I thought would be better but it was kinda meh, but I'd still take that year any day over 2016. I'm just ready for New Years Day 2020 at this point. I have feeling that 2020 is going to be the most exciting New Years since 2000.

I didn't mean to say that 2014 and 2015 were similar, just that they blend together in my mind. I can't tell sometimes which of my memories are from 2014 or 2015, and some emotions for one year spill over to the other too :P

I agree, even though 2014 and 2015 had many differences, 2014 and 2015 are a lot more comparable than 2015 and 2016. After all, the years are part of the mid 2010's culturally too (not just numerically).

Yeah. 2014 is also one of my favourites, when Vine was at its peak, with KingBach, Lele Pons, The Gabbie Show, Rudy Mancuso, The Paul Brothers, they were funnier back then, unlike today. Everyone went crazy over GTA 5 and Minecraft, while I was on the Roblox side as opposed to minecraft  ;D Movies like Divergent and Malificent were fun to watch, and there were a lot of good songs, when Hip Hop was influenced by DJ Mustard with Don’t Tell Em, Loyal, and you had rappers like Drake and Iggy Azalea. Pop music was dominated by Sam Smith, Ariana Grande, and Taylor Swift, and you had EDM artists like Calvin Harris and Zedd. The most 2014 songs for me were Don’t tell em, Am I wrong, and Bang Bang by Nicki Minaj. It was a fun year, yeah.

2015, and half of 2018, in my opinion, were dark & depressing for my personal life though... I was having trouble with stress and growing up in 2015, and I was just depressed in Early to Mid 2018. Pop culturally though, 2015 was mostly good, but 2018, it’s like 2013-17 but darker or less 2010s influenced.

I guess 2013 and 2017 were the two all-around fun and exciting years for me.

I enjoyed 2013 because it was the year after I turned 21 and I started clubbing a lot with new friends. I know I will always look back fondly on that year.

Even though 2017 was horrible politically, it was an exciting year for me because of all the traveling I did. I attended the Women's March in D.C. and completed a study abroad trip to Spain that summer which included side trips to London and Rome.

Yeah, 2015 and 2016 are completely separate in my head. 2016 (end of 2015) is when I joined this forum! :D

Yeah, 2012 and 2016 are my favourite years, but 2010, 2011, 2014, and 2017 were good too. 2015 was ok, just had to go through dark times in personal life, and I hated how mumble rap was getting popular then with annoying Rich Homie Quan and Fetty Wap. Late 2018 and so far 2019, dark.

To me those years are different. 2014-2015 school year I spent my first year college in NY and was pretty miserable from mid 2015-early 2018 i spent the rest of my college years in NC and my life just felt different. In 2014 I couldn't wait to leave my little town and move back up north with my family and see my friends from my old church but things didn't go so well so I ended up back in NC. That experience really taught me to listen to the voice of God before making a big descion. I know most of you guys aren't religious but I believe God wanted me to stay in NC. That's why 2015 feels different to me than 2014.

For me, 2011 and 2012 are the only years that really blend together. All other years I can feel a distinct difference but something about both 2011 and 2012 that are exactly the same. I guess I had a lot of changes in my personal life throughout the decade.

Every year of the 10s feel distinct to me, but the years that blend the most would be 2016-17.

2010. There were a lot of good movies. There was variety in music (not just electropop) and there was diversity in everything from fashion, games and more.

2010-2012 for music fun, especially the summer hits of both 2011 and 2012 were so good! Still hilding strong. Heck, I want Gangnam Style and Call Me Maybe played at my wedding (no sarcasm!). 2013 was more sober, but it also was fun, though not as rememberable/silly. 2008-2012 music was like the modern version of the 80s without being as tacky/talentless as the 90s teen pop era.

For personal life: 2013 - mid 2014. Even in the secong half of 2014, especially August and September I met some very nice people abroad. I wish I appreciated 2013 and first half of 2014 better at the time. I was the happiest person on the world. :\' ( :)

I don't like 2015-present pop culture and trends hence it all blends to me. Also, I've been bothered by chronic depression since late 2014. Me giving off bad vibes makes others act rude to me. Night and day I pray to be happy and healthy again. :-[

Damn. I hope you feel better soon, I was also depressed in Early 2018. Just try doing what makes you feel better, and maybe ignore those people, talk to some friends, ya know, you got me

Overall I'd say 2015. It was overall pretty quiet and not as much drama, and more good memories than bad. It's sad to say that 2012 and 2016 were my "better" years. Also 2010, 2011, 2017, and 2018 were fairly good.

You can see that the mid-2010s were the worst for me versus the early-2010s. 2018 was better then 2017 so I hope 2019 is in the top five for the best years for me.

Awe, but the Early 2013-Mid 2016 was fun  :( 2018 was dark for me, music was upbeat, sure, but there was Post Malone, Bazzi, Juice WRLD, Billie Eilish, and other pop/R&B artists being popular, making music seem dark. Please don’t tell me to watch the 2018 YouTube rewind again, please, have mercy, I don’t wanna puke on that cringevid again  :\'( ;D
