Subject: 90s kids rant

Written By: Baltimoreian on 08/26/16 at 2:08 pm

So I finally saw a rant that looks so legitimate on 90s kids, that I have to post it here. It's time to expose the 90s of what it actually was.

P.S. I really didn't take it seriously, because I barely gave a crap about 90s nostalgia.

He pretty much reminds me of Filthy Frank, who does the same comedy. Although, I just think of 90s nostalgia as a meme nowadays.

I think he made the video because 90s nostalgia wasn't as cool as the actual 90s were. Especially when he mostly talked about late 90s babies who weren't even kids during the 90s.

Hey I agree with everything in the vid.  Now if people like the 1990s then it's all fine and good. But when it goes on..and on...and on... and on to the point where it feels like a majority of media is pandering to 90's nostalgia then it just gets out of hand. Enough with the dumb buzzfeed articles, annoying facebook/twitter posts, blogs, terrible remakes/reboots of old 1990s movies/games, and arrogant people. Nowadays I don't care too much for the decade, but it doesn't bother me if other people like it.

Now in the end he did just insult Swing Jazz music. So I'm in a very bad mood. >:(

Hmm, I agree with what he has said, but as he mentioned in the video, the 90s were nostalgic for the 70s. The 70s were nostalgic for the 50s with shows like Happy Days. Last decade had a lot of 80s throwbacks, and I believe next decade will have a lot of 2000s nostalgia.

I personally am not (might be nostalgic for a 90s game I played when I was younger or a movie, but not the decade as a whole or any years from that decade) nostalgic for the 90s as I only lived a year in the 90s. I like a lot of 90s music, movies, and games, but that's how every decade (pop culture wise at least) is for me from the last decade of the 19th (marching band music is good  ;D) century to this decade.

I'd disagree with the video that people who are too young to be 90s kids are the only ones doing the bragging. I've seen plenty of people born in 1993 and before (those who are actually 90s kids) bragging about the 90s.

In general, I think childish-ness is a common theme of my generation, the Millennials. There are all these Buzzfeed and Facebook articles by people in their 20s-early 30s about how working is soooo hard, or that they just want to finger paint, or asking "Why can't I eat candy at the doctor's anymore?" ::)

It definitely will. I've seen the future, there will be a retaliation against the '90s elitists since the '00s children had to deal with them so long, a large group of these '00s children become '00s elitists.

People near your age have matured over the last few years, so I can easily get over it. Maybe it's just me, but it's seems like the later half of "decade" kids seem to brag the worst about a decade. Like for example, it seems like the 1983-1986 born's are very mature about the 90's, don't brag about it, and they are quick to mention the positive and the negative about the 90's. 1988-1991 born's on the other hand, are immature about the 90's and brag so much about it including coming up with all these crazy memes and spreading all this misinformed information about the 90's that wasn't true, including lumping the early 2000's with the 90's as well. I feel the same way about our 2000's kids, it turns out that the 1998-2000 born's are going to be immature about reminiscing the decade while the 1993-1995 born's are going to stay mature about it.

I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you, however that sounds very stereotypical and biased. There are plenty of people who were born in the Mid 90's, who are already guilty of bragging about the decade. Just take a look at some of the threads on this site; a lot of them are based on how 'great' the Early 2000's were or what it was like to be a kid back then. Most of those threads were created by people who are around the same age as you. How can you suggest that 1993-1995 borns are going to remain mature about it? If anything, at the present time, they are more 'immature' about it than 1998-2000 borns, in my opinion.

As for myself, I personally don't feel the need to brag about having the majority of my childhood in the 2000's. I have a lot of great childhood memories from the 2000's, however I don't particularly like a lot of the kids culture from the decade.

I feel like it would be a thing in the near future. Possibly in the late 2010s or early 2020s, since the late 2000s are nearly 10 years old, especially 2007.

They sound a bit like those Toys R Us kids from 1982 and 1996, although they were more mature about toys. I may be really nostalgic for the 2000s (I mean it, really), but I wouldn't go and look at 2000s kids memes, since they barely exist on the Internet, thanks to 90s blinding their nostalgia.

The year that the parents decide to "get-it-on" without "cover" is the moment where your birth date is decided. So if you hate your birth date then you have a group of people to blame.

Pretty much. I seem many people around my age who're are the ones you'd see in them annoying youtube videos and comment sections acting all arrogant due to being "90s kids" and whatnot. The early members don't see to act that way, but I think the reason this happens is due to the fact that once a nostalgia wave for a decade begins the early kids are already too old to really be on the internet making fun of the younger people for not growing up in the same decade. By 2020 1993-1995 born will be 25-27. By the time 2000's nostalgia hits its peak they would probably be in their 30s. Too old to care at that point. You're from 1996 yet you certainly don't seem like you'd be the immature type to me. Then again I don't think anyone on this forum will be regardless of age.

Early '00s IS similar (but not the same) to the late '90s, but that would still make you a '00s kid.  But then again someone from 2000 isn't even an early 00's kid as they may not have much memory of the early '00s (maybe 2003, but that's it).

Well, I'd say if you were born in '94, a good portion of your childhood did take place in the '90s. They are somewhat late '90s kids, but mainly early '00s and mid '00s kids.

1994 babies were only in elementary school during the 1999-00 school year as Kindergartners, which wasn't really a full year in the 90s. So, they were mostly early 2000s kids by that point.

It was totally different for me growing up. I used to be obsessed with The Mask. I got a copy of it on VHS for Christmas in 1994,and watched it so many times the tape eventually tore up. I even had these really rad Mask action figures I used to play with back in the day.

Man, I'm gonna feel old as hell when that starts happening. And the weird thing is, it's probably not that far away either. You might start seeing some 2007 babies showing up here on the boards in another 4 or 5 years. :o


I would imagine 2007 babies being really immature here on the forums, and I would be surprised that you could somehow be nostalgic for the 2010s at a very young age. Although I did became nostalgic for the 2000s since 2014, but it would be different here in a few years now that I think about it.

1994 babies were only in elementary school during the 1999-00 school year as Kindergartners, which wasn't really a full year in the 90s. So, they were mostly early 2000s kids by that point.


Definitely, but I wouldn't disregard their '90s influences, it would mostly be early-mid '00s influences though, I agree on that.

It was totally different for me growing up. I used to be obsessed with The Mask. I got a copy of it on VHS for Christmas in 1994,and watched it so many times the tape eventually tore up. I even had these really rad Mask action figures I used to play with back in the day.

Oh, I had a Mask action figure too! I think I got it from Burger King or McDonald's and the like. It was The Mask with a button on his back, and when you push it down, his tongue sticks out!  ;D

I often see people born in the mid 90s like to brag about how they're 90s kids, and how those born in the late 90s aren't, and I'm like "NO! Neither of you are!" ;D

If they have older siblings that help refresh their memory, the balance could easily tip the other way. My brother remembers 98/99 almost as well as I do (although honestly I consider 1999 to be an early 2000s year anyway).

Actually, if you were born in the 90s, that's still not enough to make you a 90s kid. Your a Late 90s kid, semi. Not the full gene that seen the peak of Power Rangers for example. You have to be 8 or 7 by 93 to be a 90s kid. The same goes for 80s and so forth. This is some real stuff I realized. I was born in 90 of September and I appreciate that it gave me the privilege with being really a Late 90s/Early 2000s kid, my two in general favorite eras.

I could see that you were in middle school at the time, but personally I loved the pop culture at the time, the way TV was in general, the movies, some mainstream music, and the video games. I think the pop culture during 2005 gets underestimated too much, and the internet/social media still wasn't as big yet as what would happen by the late 2000's/early 2010's-present. Then again, you're 3 years older than me and grew up 4 grades ahead of me, so I can understand why.

2005 was all horrible and there was nothing good about it! Pwned! Sad!

Just kidding. 2005 was mostly the year from hell but there are some things I like about it. The TV shows were AMAZING, there was quality TV everywhere, though the explosion of reality TV really bogs it down. Even if the music on the radio was unlistenable, there were still some songs that were decent, and despite what Jordan says, rock was still fun.  Video games were decent, I don't think there's any year in the 2000s that's particularly bad for video games to be honest. I didn't play any console games though, I was playing mostly Sim City 4, Sims 2 and a lot of other tycoon games and simulation games, and Runescape lol.

2005 was when I noticed social media taking off though. Spring 2005 was when I noticed the first few MySpace pages, mostly from the 8th graders and people in my class hit 13. Even if social media didn't completely take off, me and most people in my class were on MSN 24/7 anyway. It was sort of the same thing, although I find the socializing experience on IMs much more rich.

That barely makes any sense. For one thing, you literally start going to elementary school at age 5, when you start Kindergarten. That's when most people were probably starting to get into kid culture, even though I was into the kid culture of the 2000s in preschool. Despite that, I was mostly watching preschool shows like Sesame Street, Barney, The Wiggles, and some shows on Nick Jr. It wasn't until I went to kindergarten in the 2004-05 school year, when I was really into stuff like Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, and Boomerang. I could never forget when I watched Spongebob so much when I was Kindergarten, especially the first three seasons.

While being in a toddler in the early 2000s makes sense for me, I kinda did some kid culture things. I watched Rugrats a little bit, and it was sort of like the first non-Nick Jr. show that I watched. But I barely remember it, considering that I wasn't a big fan of the 90s Nick shows. Being aware of kid culture and politics are like two different things. You could be into kid culture around your toddler years, but you'll mostly get into it around Kindergarten or 1st grade. I wasn't really into politics until I was a preteen, since I was only aware of the Obama election in 2008. Before that, I didn't really care that much.

But you're still a kid at ages 5 and 6. Sure, they don't have that much maturity yet, but they're still kids. They still go to elementary school, like 7-10 year olds, and they still do the same stuff that 7-10 year olds would do. That might include watching TV.

I find it hypocritical when he's says only 2000's kids claim things from the 90's as theirs, yet he claims Mario as a strictly 90's thing when Mario was also huge in the 80's too, and even if Mario's best games were from the second half of the 80's to the early 90's, he was barely born or a toddler around the time anyway, at least before Super Mario 64 came out.

That's the funny thing. IT IS THE ACTUAL DEFINITION. Or at least according to the wiki. To pull a quote from the wiki:
A toddler is a child between the ages of one and three. The toddler years are a time of great cognitive, emotional and social development. The word is derived from "to toddle", which means to walk unsteadily, like a child of this age

Once you hit preschool you ain't a toddler. Simple as that. Especially since a 4 year old doesn't "toddle" since he/she would've already learned how to walk well enough by then. Or at least well enough to attend pre-kindergarten.

I was just about to mention that. For one Mario ISN'T strictly 90's. The Mario franchise was a hit in the '80s (with Donkey Kong and the ever legendary Mario 1-3 on NES which are from 1985 - 1988), in the '00s (Mario Sunshine, New Super, Galaxy, Mario & Luigi, Paper Mario etc), and the series is still going on in the '10s. Saying it's strictly '90s just because of Mario World and Mario 64 is complete BS. And you're right he was barely born by the time the "Best" Mario games came out. Dude needs to get over himself. I've seen many 90's kids who claim 80's things. From cartoons, toys, movies, fashion, and music. For example how many times have you seen a "best 90s kid cartoons list" and saw Ducktales or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles '87 on there for example? Those are 80s yet 90s kids say otherwise.

Also in one comment is says that 00's TV show quality changed after 9/11. How in the hell did 9/11 effect the quality of TV shows?!!?!?! The only thing that changed was the trends in TV shows, but that was just due to the fact that trends change overtime. NOT because of 9/11. That's just nonsense. In the 2010s we've been having problems after problems, but the quality of the shows/movies are great. We have cartoons that have higher ratings then they did in the 1990s. And on IMDB most of the top 100 rated TV shows come from the 2000s/2010s due to us being in a 2nd Golden Age of TV (according to the Wiki anyways).

I-I can't read anymore of his garbage. Crap like this is why I've disabled the Youtube comment section (there is a plugin that would completely remove it from all vids so you have to see them). And I don't like to discuss kid things on any place besides InThe00s. Mainly since while people here do prefer a certain time period over others they aren't rude or immature of it.

TLDR? Well in short! F**k that guy. The time period you grew up in doesn't make you a better person. Or someone who was "lucky".

The comment remover/disabler is the main reason I can tolerate Youtube more often. I don't have to worry about seeing dumb comments when I scroll down to look at the related videos for example. And I don't have to worry about finding toxic users.

I find it hypocritical when he's says only 2000's kids claim things from the 90's as theirs, yet he claims Mario as a strictly 90's thing when Mario was also huge in the 80's too, and even if Mario's best games were from the second half of the 80's to the early 90's, he was barely born or a toddler around the time anyway, at least before Super Mario 64 came out. What a f**king hypocritical douchebag.


"Mario's best games" is kind of subjective, except when taking about Mario 64, then it's fact. And I don't care what anyone has to say, that game was a huge part of my childhood.

You aren't a toddler, but your still to young to leave the front porch. A 90s kid was able to travel blocks.
I wasn't referencing politics in the slightly. Video games is just as much a part of kid culture and I had no idea of the genre until Late 96. All I cared about before then was recess.


I was allowed to travel blocks and ride my bike into other neighbourhoods only after I turned 10. If we're talking about travelling the city, I started riding the subway and bus by myself when I was around 14.

If you literally mean leave the front porch, then I was allowed to go to the neighbourhood playground by myself when I was 5/6, but technically the older kids were supervising me.

Same can be said by people who had Mario Galaxy as a huge part of their childhood. And that game is the highest rated Platformer (and Mario game) as of 2016. Although my favorite Mario games are Paper Mario, Luigi's Mansion, Paper Mario, and Mario 3.

Mario Galaxy was kind of disappointing tbh. Either it was too easy, or it was too hard because of bad controls (that mantee level ARGHH). Finishing levels didn't feel rewarding. Also my Wiimote battery was always low so it took 7 years to finish it.

And I see you listed Paper Mario twice. The acclaim!!

Any similar stuff I've said in these type of threads ring a bell?


She sounds like a 90s supremacist (a person who's an 90s elitist, but takes everybody about the decade way too seriously). I'm somehow afraid of commenting against her, since she'll say that 2000s kids are inferior, due to the fact that they weren't 90s kids. Which I find painfully obvious, because we didn't control our f*cking births. By the way, to the point of where she thinks everything that she had as a kid was in the 90s is completely stupid. Especially with Mario, considering that not only his first game was well known (Donkey Kong) since the early 80s, but it would also debunk her point on saying that.

I tend to dislike the 2010s, but I wouldn't really call 2010s kids to be inferior, just because they grew up with cartoons that I don't like personally. I would've been okay with them, since they didn't have any control on telling their parents to be 2000s kids, since they have little to no memories of the decade. My first memory was from 2002, which was the year after 9/11. So, I can't factually recall anything related to New York before Al-Qaeda took down the Twin Towers, despite planning on destroying the towers since the late 80s/early 90s, which was when TheKittiesKill was only a toddler by then.

Also, considering that she defends her childhood to the extreme reminds me so much when I was known as Baltimoreian on the IGN Boards. It was kinda cringy to some people, considering I argued so much about the 2000s being great. Mrpops238 (which somebody like mqg96 would know on IGN) was basically the reason why nobody should defend their childhood with a passion, despite pretending to defend the 90s.

Once you hit preschool you ain't a toddler. Simple as that. Especially since a 4 year old doesn't "toddle" since he/she would've already learned how to walk well enough by then. Or at least well enough to attend pre-kindergarten.


Yeah, but people tend to disagree with that definition. I seem to know that you aren't a toddler by age 4, since you're in pre-K by then. Especially when most kids are already toilet trained by that age.

I was just about to mention that. For one Mario ISN'T strictly 90's. The Mario franchise was a hit in the '80s (with Donkey Kong and the ever legendary Mario 1-3 on NES which are from 1985 - 1988), in the '00s (Mario Sunshine, New Super, Galaxy, Mario & Luigi, Paper Mario etc), and the series is still going on in the '10s. Saying it's strictly '90s just because of Mario World and Mario 64 is complete BS. And you're right he was barely born by the time the "Best" Mario games came out. Dude needs to get over himself.

Paper Mario = Best game ever. All jokes aside Mario Galaxy isn't my favorite Mario game either. But people seem to treat it as "the best geim evah".


But it's definitely better than the inferior Super Mario Sunshine by several miles. I never cared for the Paper Mario series so I can't say anything about that. I think the few people who hate on Super Mario Galaxy are seriously blinded by nostalgia goggles if they were huge fans of Super Mario 64. Sure, Super Mario 64 revolutionized 3-D platforming gaming and it was great for its time since nobody had ever saw anything like it before, but that doesn't mean it was perfect. There are some elements in Super Mario 64 that hasn't aged well, especially that camera. There were certain levels where that camera would seriously screw you over, and there were a few glitches too where you could possibly go through walls. There's more to it, but other than that I loved Super Mario 64, and to this day it's the only 3-D Mario game where I officially completed it 100% with all 120 stars, including those annoying 100 coin levels.

Back to Super Mario Galaxy, like I said before, it was a huge step forward after Sunshine's disappointment, it brought back a lot of elements that made Super Mario 64 great. The idea of that game was amazing. It introduced Rosalina to the Mario series perfectly, by telling a story about the lumas and how she came in the observatory to watch over the galaxies or something like that. The level designs for Galaxy was one of the best I had ever seen in a Mario game. Whether it was Honeyhive Galaxy, Toy Time Galaxy, Freezeflame Galaxy, Spacejunk Galaxy, etc. Super Mario Galaxy felt like a sooo long timeless game because there were 42 (FORTY-TWO) galaxies in the game! That's mind blowing compared to Super Mario 64's 15 worlds. Bowser's evil plans in this game is also a step up from other Mario series, instead of Bowser just kidnapping the Princess, taking Peach's castle into outer space (btw that cutscene gave me chills), and taking all of the castle's stars away again, Bowser now wants to take full control of the universe too. He mentioned that during the final boss fight. It makes Bowser more intimidating than he did in any Mario game. Last but not least, the amazing soundtrack. Super Mario Galaxy had the best unique soundtrack in a Mario series, the orchestra mixed with classic Mario themes and other new theme music was just flawless. So I'm sorry to be harsh here, but while most Super Mario 64 fans I know loved Galaxy 1 & 2, any Super Mario 64 fan who hates on Galaxy or considers it as their least favorite 3-D Mario game is completely blinded by rose colored glasses. I actually find beating Super Mario Galaxy 100% to be a lot more challenging than beating Super Mario 64 100%, because while each game requires 120 stars, Super Mario 64 only had 15 worlds, and in each of the worlds you knew right away you needed 6 stars and a 7th one for the 100 coins, really simple, although some secret castle stars can be difficult though. Not to mention in Super Mario 64, unless the races against Koopa the Quick or the Penguin counts, there are NO timed levels. In Super Mario Galaxy, there are 42 galaxies and in each of those galaxies you never know what you're going to get. Some comet levels are easy, but some can be difficult especially if you're timed in those God awful purple coin levels. On top of this, to complete Super Mario Galaxy 100% you have to beat the game as Mario AND Luigi, and with Luigi they make those comet levels much more challenging. So I like the balance that Super Mario Galaxy had overall. Same goes for 64 too.

Now anybody can complain about the controls, but in the end. That's gaming. PC gaming with keyboard buttons can be a challenge if you're used to console controllers all the time. Handheld controllers with the D-pad can be challenging if you're used to analog sticks all the time. The N64 controller can be a challenge to use because of the awkwardness of the analog stick being in the middle of controller and unless your thumb is really long you have to hold that controller unevenly/unbalanced. The Wii controller can be a challenge because it's motion controls. Using a Playstation controller can be a challenge if you're not used to the X's and O's buttons on there instead of the A & B buttons on a Nintendo controller. That's just the life of gaming. I've learned to control things differently. Video games have different mechanics and different physics too. That's just life get what I'm saying?

I like all 3D Mario games. Bugs me that Nintendo decided to move away from the 3D Mario games (3D World/Land don't count) due to people (aka filthy casual noobs) apparently finding them "hard" as they would have trouble platforming in 3D space. And because people in japan apparently had 3D motion sickness from the games and would end up getting lost in the levels (still don't know how this could happen in Galaxy). So they made 3D Land/World to appeal to both 3D and 2D fans. My issue with this is that while the games are decent they don't have the same spark/fun that 64-Galaxy 2 had.

As for the controls I feel that they would always bother some. Due to playing so long I don't have issues, but I due remember playing the Gamcube, N64, PS1/Ps2, Wii, Wii U, Xbox etc for the first times. Getting used to the controller placement was always odd for me. But hey it's something you're supposed to master.

So, I watched the video earlier and I have to say it was hilarious ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I agree with what the guy was saying, but honestly I think he exaggerated too much. While the 90s itself clearly wasn't a utopia, it wasn't that bad. I mean, every decade no matter what has positives and negatives which makes the world stay in balance for a reason. The 1930s were obviously horrible due the economic Depression, but on the bright side, there were brilliant movies being released at that time.


People near your age have matured over the last few years, so I can easily get over it. Maybe it's just me, but it's seems like the later half of "decade" kids seem to brag the worst about a decade. Like for example, it seems like the 1983-1986 born's are very mature about the 90's, don't brag about it, and they are quick to mention the positive and the negative about the 90's. 1988-1991 born's on the other hand, are immature about the 90's and brag so much about it including coming up with all these crazy memes and spreading all this misinformed information about the 90's that wasn't true, including lumping the early 2000's with the 90's as well. I feel the same way about our 2000's kids, it turns out that the 1998-2000 born's are going to be immature about reminiscing the decade while the 1993-1995 born's are going to stay mature about it.
You wanna know why? It's not just that they matured over time, but also that the older members were actually adolescents during the decade itself while the younger ones were children which makes the former understand that not everything was awesome and they aren't as nostalgia-blinded as the latter are.


I was kidding. Actually, I agree with quite a bit of what that guy said (except about The Mask, that movie kicked ass 8)). The "'90s elitist" types are extremely annoying, and I myself have been speaking out against them since the late '00s.

Now that we're almost ten years removed from the early stages of '90s nostalgia, I wonder if "'00s elitists" will start becoming a thing soon? :o
I think it will. I mean, we already had the 80s and 90s elitists, so it wouldn't be surprising if the 00s ones emerge soon. In fact, we had already encountered one on here sometime ago and we haven't seen him since and so far, there are some of them on YouTube (that's how all of us mostly find them by going on that site).


I don't consider people born in 1994-1999 to be 90s kids, they're 00s kids. :P

I often see people born in the mid 90s like to brag about how they're 90s kids, and how those born in the late 90s aren't, and I'm like "NO! Neither of you are!" ;D



No one born from 1993 onward is a 90s kid. 1992 is a hybrid. If a majority of your core childhood took place in the 2000s then you're a 00s kid. And I still don't get what there is to brag about in terms of being a 90s kid.
Honestly, most people are actually both, and I really think it's better to split childhood into halves considering that both stages are different and that each section has 4/5 years minimum.


1994 babies were only in elementary school during the 1999-00 school year as Kindergartners, which wasn't really a full year in the 90s. So, they were mostly early 2000s kids by that point.
Uhuhuhuhuhuhuh, not if they went to elementary integrated with a preschool. Some schools have PS-5th.


Well, I'd say if you were born in '94, a good portion of your childhood did take place in the '90s. They are somewhat late '90s kids, but mainly early '00s and mid '00s kids.
Agreed! If you look at childhood in halves, then their early portion took place during the 90s.


Yay I'm a 90s kid!  :D

If they have older siblings that help refresh their memory, the balance could easily tip the other way. My brother remembers 98/99 almost as well as I do (although honestly I consider 1999 to be an early 2000s year anyway).
Yeah! Me too! ;) :D ;D

And/or other older relatives especially if they are in your age range.


Actually, if you were born in the 90s, that's still not enough to make you a 90s kid. Your a Late 90s kid, semi. Not the full gene that seen the peak of Power Rangers for example. You have to be 8 or 7 by 93 to be a 90s kid. The same goes for 80s and so forth. This is some real stuff I realized. I was born in 90 of September and I appreciate that it gave me the privilege with being really a Late 90s/Early 2000s kid, my two in general favorite eras.



I go by when your old enough to understand what's around you. While I remember a few glimpses of 94-96, I had no idea of the majority. I really became aware of things by 97.
Well kids can understand their environment at an earlier age especially if it's local or non-political. I'm sure there were many young kids who recall the countdown to Y2K, the 2003 Blackout, the NFL superbowls, the MLB world series, etc.

You might not have been aware of your surroundings until you were 7, but that doesn't mean it was the same for others.


Y2K era kids



Late 90s/early 2000s kids.



Basically prime Y2K era kids.
Pretty much this considering that the 1991-95 group had a chunk of their childhood taking place in this era.

They definitely don't speak for 90s kids especially since they put others down for no reason, and are arrogant and ignorant at the same time.

Whoa whoa. My previous comment wasn't directed towards anyone in this particular thread. Was mainly on the general topic on 90s kids and whatnot. But hey it doesn't matter what people call themselves, I suppose. Doesn't change how they grew up and what time period they mainly grew up in. "90s kid", "00s kid" etc are nothing more than just dumb labels. Wish it was never brought to such extremes as it did now.

TheKittlesKill strikes again.... This was a tough decision, but I'm going to post this commentary. Tell me what y'all think of this. I showed this to UltraGameDog last year but this time it's been updated with recent comments. Talk about a 90's elitist or a hypocrite. This guy comes into that category easily, and he was born in 1989 (then again, that's why younger kids of the decade tend to be a lot more immature than older kids of the decade, tough to except but it's true...)

Honestly, I actually feel kinda sorry for whoever wrote all of this because it's clear they haven't had much of a life since they were in elementary school. The truth is, most '80s babies I know actually love the 2000's. You know why? Because that's when we were actually old enough to, you know, do stuff. As much as I love the '90s (and everyone knows how much I do), the fact is I was only in 7th grade when the decade ended, still living under my parents roof and under their rules. The '00s was when I really started living. That's when I got my drivers license, started dating, got my first job, started buying things with my own money, and moved out and went to college. 2000-2007 in particular were some of the best years of my life, because those are the years in which I really came of age. It's kind of sad, really, to see somebody who thinks their life peaked at age 8.

What I don't like are these people you see on places like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter who actively attack others just because they happen to be younger than them. That's the kind of stuff that really bothers me, and I always feel compelled to call it out.

Oh you mean ageism? Can't stand it either.  >:( If someone's teen experience sucked then I can understand that, but I find it hard to believe that ALL arrogant 90s kids have crappy teen years. Apparently they preferred the time before they had the freedom to get out and experience pop culture (and not kid culture). To think that just because you didn't grow up watching a certain show people would make fun of you for it.

That means those who say they despise the 00s are actually in the minority. I agree what you mean though. Yeah, most us here were children during at some point in the 90s, but in reality, we were pretty much doing things that were kid-related such as PR, Pokemon, Furbies, etc. and the 00s was when the bulk of this generation had more freedom of doing everything you mentioned. Heck, even 90s folks (when we were adolescents back then) even enjoyed the decade considering that some of us were in secondary school, had thoughts about dating, hanging with friends generally, do crazy things, etc.

I have a feeling that you genuinely miss the 00s in general despite the terrible things that happened. I don't blame you for that. If you want to know, the majority of this cohort is definitely going to be nostalgic for the 00s within the next few years especially since the decade is already pushing 20! :o

But yeah, the atmosphere of the 2010s is truly disturbing because of the events that have occurred in the last few years.

It's funny how all the issues with the 90s kid fad seem to be centered back to the arrogant 90s kids.

Eh. I could've liked being a young adult in the 2000s. Although, I kinda like being a teen in this decade, since I don't have to go through a lot of modern kiddy stuff.

There are some kids who are actually interested into watching video reviews of their cartoons. It's a rather big community on YouTube. Although, I think most of them have heard about bronies, and other cartoon fanatics that are a bit cringy to see.

Hahahaha, My Little Pony IS and has ALWAYS been for little girls. She's in the main target audience for it. It's just that major brony trend that started right when the show began which caused an internet fandom of ponies everywhere and it's been annoying as hell the last several years. My Little Pony has been an ongoing franchise since the 80's (a lot of people forget this, Friendship Is Magic is a reboot), and even before this decade began I always viewed ponies as something for girls, just like Barbie, Bratz, Strawberry Shortcake or American Girl.

I really agree with this. I may be a former brony (and somehow watched one of the G3 specials as a kid), but I'm not sure how could any boy be that interested into My Little Pony? I only cared about it because it looked cute to me, but then I found out about the internet fanbase. I just wish I forgot about my brony life, since it's really embarrassing to talk about with people who don't seem to like kiddy cartoons. Although, I'm not a big fan over modern children's cartoons.

Yeah, but the Internet tends to dislike bronies. If I was still a brony to this day, I would've been stereotyped with jacking off to the characters, since they tend to think that most bronies sexualize them. Also, I don't want to be labeled as a cringe type of guy, and have most of my stuff being on cringe compilations on YouTube.

Oh yeah, they did! Thanks to them, 90s nostalgia is not only embarrassing because of the assumptions, but now people truly want it to end so badly especially since it began too early! Had the movement started a few years ago, it would have definitely been much better and more realistic than what we're seeing right now. Oh, and as for the high crime rates, that decade is when it actually began declining and it's been that way ever since. In addition, the reasons there was such a thing is not just the causes I mentioned in another thread, but also that there was lots of property crime which occurred the most in those days and much of it still happens today since phones, MP3s and other devices are mainly stolen in a variety of ways.

That doesn't mean guys shouldn't watch it. By that, Hot-Wheels, for example was always somethings for guys and not girls. See what I mean? I think it's better for both sexes to have to have the other gender toys, so that not only will it make them more comfortable, but it will also develop certain skills they will need in the future.

I'm not sure if you noticed, but since girls have always played with dolls and took care of them, they gained skills to take care of kids very well when they have one which is why the majority are babysitters, nannies, etc.

It would be a joke as well. Can't believe it's been about 10 years since 90s nostalgia has been around, and that's when 1997-1999 wasn't even a decade old yet. I could be contradicting myself, since I do tend to be nostalgic over 2007-2009. However, I don't get that nostalgic over them (okay, maybe except for 2007).

But My Little Pony hasn't really targeted towards boys ever since the franchise was around in the 80s. Sure, there's G4 MLP, but most of the fans (or bronies in this case) are grown adult men. I don't even think a lot of little boys like it that much.

Yeah, I know. The reason 90s nostalgia began early is because the 1990-94 era seemed to have gotten lumped in with the late 80s (1985-89) due to both periods having some similarities.

Well, as somebody who likes Hello Kitty (and other characters made by Sanrio), I could agree with this. But whenever I see Hello Kitty, it's usually a little girl who admires her. I never really saw a boy at any age like Hello Kitty, aside from myself. Even after 9 years since I got into Hello Kitty, I barely see any boys like it. In fact, I only see one other guy from Twitter who genuinely likes the franchise.

Same here, from 2002-2004 the only reason I watched some of those cheesy/crappy Barbie movies is because my sister was hooked into those. As a kid I actually didn't mind some scenes that were hilarious, but watching a Barbie movie is not the same as being into the toys. Barbie toys looked boring to me as a young kid, if anything it was a turnoff. I was hooked into Hot Wheels because I liked the idea of different type of colorful cars and models, and the Planet Hot Wheels website was amazing because you got to create custom tracks and race against people around the world, and buy new/custom car parts too. The Hot Wheels Highway 35/World Race video game was a huge part of my childhood as well. I was hooked into anything hot wheels throughout the first half of the 2000's. As an adult, I guess the same argument can be used how automotive/mechanics is a lot more interesting than babysitting.

To be fair, Hot Wheels evolved in a great way throughout its time. Barbies have just been the same way since its debut in 1959, despite a few changes to the dolls. I may not be interested towards automobiles, but you could pretty much do a lot of things with automobiles/vehicles in your imagination.

Same here, from 2002-2004 the only reason I watched some of those cheesy/crappy Barbie movies is because my sister was hooked into those. As a kid I actually didn't mind some scenes that were hilarious, but watching a Barbie movie is not the same as being into the toys. Barbie toys looked boring to me as a young kid, if anything it was a turnoff. I was hooked into Hot Wheels because I liked the idea of different type of colorful cars and models, and the Planet Hot Wheels website was amazing because you got to create custom tracks and race against people around the world, and buy new/custom car parts too. The Hot Wheels Highway 35/World Race video game was a huge part of my childhood as well. I was hooked into anything hot wheels throughout the first half of the 2000's. As an adult, I guess the same argument can be used how automotive/mechanics is a lot more interesting than babysitting.


Yeah, my brother and I had a total of 200 to 300 hot wheels cars. We loved those from around 2002-2006. We would play with those a lot back then.

Hot Wheels sound so Early 2000s. Haha I remember seeing boxed packs that would let you see the cars lined up through the plastic in stores that looked juicy along with trains I was more into from 96. The Hot Wheel cars I don't remember buying had a addiction that would sneak up on you. It just hit me hard! I remember bringing literally one to school in 2001 at the time I mysteriously departed from the fad. I recall bringing it with me every day as if it was my personally friend I used to constantly roll on the desk in class and one of my temporary friends commenting on it. Hot Wheels was actually a thing in my neighbor back then. I was just mostly absent. 2004 was basically the last year Hot Wheels were relevant.

Well the 90s memorial/nostalgia wave is nothing more than a fad. Fads/Trends do overstay their welcome, but they eventually fade away as people do get bored of them.

It's funny how all the issues with the 90s kid fad seem to be centered back to the arrogant 90s kids. I swear they ruined everything. 1990s wasn't a utopia as any decade with a crazy high crime rate scares the heck outta me, but it I didn't end up disliking the decade until the arrogant 90s kids came around and made themselves and everyone else look bad. 1990s isn't an awful time (only awful time I can think of is the 1930s-1940s due to WW2, Cold War, Great Depression, Holocaust etc although I still love those 2 decades) as it did have some good stuff.

A few years ago i met a guy born in 1980 who thought the Late 1990s sucked.  Another awful time i think sucked was the mid and late 1910s due to world war 1

I know the 90s kid thing is stupid to gatekeep, but c'mon... being 0 on 9/11 doesn't make you the "ultimate in 90s nostalgia"! If anything, they'd be the Ultimate Generation of 2007-2011 nostalgia. Chowder, Flapjack, Bakugan, early Adventure Time, Silly Bands, Poptropica, etc.

However, when I commented a whole bunch of people started attacking me and saying "You're not a 90s kid...you're a f*cking 00s kid", "You were only a baby pooping in your diaper in the 90s...you idiot". I felt really bad and I was confused...it's been a long journey since then.

90s kid means "sad nostalgic man-child" when it comes to the elitist ones.  I'm a 1990s kid as I was born in 1990, but people said I was a 2000s kid despite being 10 by the time the decade started and 19 when it ended. 90s kid is nothing more than some dumb label. Whether or not I consider myself a 90s kid or not won't change my experienced childhood in any possible.

I'm just happy the 90s kid disaster has died down since about 2014 onward. It's one of the only things I really didn't like about the early 2010s when it came to internet culture.

Well they're stupid for saying that. You're definitely a 90s kid whether they realize that or not. The 90s kid elitists got on my nerves during those years because they would constantly attack other decades and be projecting the 90s as a utopia.

I remember getting into arguments with some of them around that time, and they were completely arrogant and ignorant for as bunch of reasons. I'm actually glad that has been over for some time despite that I have occasionally come across those topics.

  Yeah, they ruined 90s nostalgia for me. I think the 1990s is cool, but I didn't hold it as high as the elitists did. I didn't see it as a amazing utopian time period, but just a time period where despite its flaws was generally good when it came to kid culture (was only 9-10 when it ended so I can only relate to early and core kid culture).

Funny that we've both had problematic arguements. For me as a 1990 born I was mainly getting annoyed by the elitist 1980s born. For you I'm sure there were people my age who were getting on your nerves. Heck I've seen 1992 born acting like elitists. It's like who ever is within the exclusive "cool 90s kid" club seems to start acting like a**hats. All people want to do is just have a good time talking about 1990s pop culture, but they had to ruin it by talking down/insulting people for trivial reasons. How I see it is if you've experienced 1990s culture in any way then I have no issue talking with you about it. Doesn't matter on age. You're from 1993, correct? I'm sure you have a quite a few late 1990s memories from your childhood when you were 3-6 in 1996-1999? And even in the early 2000s there were leftovers that were still around. But don't tell the elitists that!

As long as you can recall 1990s stuff that's good enough for me. Don't care on your age. I mean is it a crime if I talk about 1980s stuff? I remember seeing people say that you should not be allowed to enjoys things that is before your time. This is dumb as if everyone thought like this then history literally wouldn't exist. I can't like 1920s Jazz or look at far off outer space planets because they've exist long before I was born?

Well the 90s were great, not just for kid culture, but also films, music (especially the variety), games etc. It can't get any better than that. OTT, I still agree that there were flaws in that era that the elitists refuse to believe.

Yeah, I have plenty of memories from the late 90s that I think about from time to time ranging from video games, movies, TV shows, music etc. and I agree in the early 2000s, there were some leftovers that kids enjoyed.

Oh definitely. Over the years I have been online, I have seen folks my age range talking down on others who weren't 90s kids telling their childhood was terrible, and that it will never be great as the "almighty 90s kid!".

No, it was actual 90s kids who were overhyping the '90s that made many mid-late '90s borns like myself want to identify as a '90s kid.

The reason is that we're born in the '90s and we watched a lot of the shows and did a lot of the things that were shown in the memes...so we thought that it made us '90s kids as well (especially when they claimed things from 2000-2006).

That's true. I found it hilarious when 2000-06 things (and even 80s things) were included in the 90s kid nostalgia which is why lots of people identified as 90s kids. They probably didn't realize they made a mistake, and it's what escalated into the countless 90s kids' debates over the years.

Oh well my bad. It sounded like you was saying something slightly different.

Anyways, yeah I agree with what you said.

Guys, I've had early '80s borns tell me that I'm not a '90s kid. There was an argument about this a long time ago where a guy said that anybody born after 1985 was an '00s kid.


Oh what the hell?!  ???  Okay so being a teen in the 1990s makes you the ultimate 90s kid? So what counts as 90s kid then? I can get 1982-1985 being early 90s kids, but that's it. And that's just early 90s. Telling me anyone from the 1970s to 1981 are 90s kids is just stupid as it doesn't make any sense.


I think what is more annoying, is that people tend to confuse us 2000's kids with 2010's kids. For example, I recently saw this article talking about how 2000's kids do nothing but play on the iPad, which didn't come out until 2010.
http://www.storypick.com/90s-and-2000s-kids/



I've seen claims like that in a lot of youtube videos, articles, forums etc. First off iPads didn't take off into popualrity until 2010 onward. In fact the very first Ipad is from 2010 meaning it was around for ANY point in the 2000s. So a 2000s kid wouldn't have them. You could bring up the iphone which was in 2007, but they weren't as popular as they are now in 2017 (literally 10 years later). In the 2000s it still wasn't too common to even find kids with phones or kids who spent a lot of time on phones.

To elitist 90s kids the 90s era is HUGE for some reason. I see things from 1980s and 2000s being lumped into the 90s kid lists. This ended up confusing people. Also 90s kids don't take into account for things that existed even past the 1990s and into the 2000s yet would claim that 2000s kids won't know about . When I see things like Pokemon or Ed Ed n Eddy on a "only 90s kids will know" list I cringe. It's funny as they make this double standard. You see they'll include 80s cartoons like Ducktales or Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers as 90s cartoons since they aired in the 1990s. However Ducktales ran into the 1990s as Reruns on the Disney Afternoon and Chip n Dale aired in 1989, but ended in the early 1990s.

Now I know you can base it on which decade a show aired longest, but 90s kids only do this with 80s cartoons. When it comes to 90s cartoons that aired in 1998/1999 and had a majority of their run in the 2000s or had a reruns that aired often in the 2000s they still just count them as "only 90s kid shows" and they don't count for 2000s kids. Meaning 90s kids can take claim to Ducktales of Chip n Dale, but 00s kids can't take claim to Pokemon or Ed Edd n Eddy for some reason despite them being in the same case.

Idiots I tell ya. If my younger brother remembers watching a 90s show air on TV I'm not going to argue with him as I've been with him throughout his childhood and can confirm that he used to love watching the shows. But to elitist 90s kids this just makes him a "fake 90s kid".

I HATE when people always do this, mixing up the 00's and 10's like they are the same, Buzzfeed do it all the time. It's so annoying, I had a very different childhood to someone born in 2010. :-\\

I agree it annoys me so much.

Some people stupidly think that if you were born after 1994 you basically grew up with a smartphone. It just makes me mad >:(.

I know. I've seen non-90s shows being lumped in with the decade all the time when it comes to nostalgia which doesn't make sense at all. Oh, and yes, 00s kids definitely have the right to claim shows as Pokemon, Ed Edd n Eddy and Angry Beavers as their own as much as the elitist 90s kids.

That's what I was telling them all along, but they refuse to listen. Oh, and I have always found it funny with them when they would talk about TV shows as if that was the only thing to be nostalgic for. I have mainly never the elitist 90s kids talk about videos games, movies, fashion or even books. It makes me think they're more a fake 90s kid than ever.


I agree it annoys me so much.

Some people stupidly think that if you were born after 1994 you basically grew up with a smartphone. It just makes me mad >:(.
Yeah, that's not true at all. Hopefully, these folks realize that smartphones weren't popular until a few years ago.

As an 85er myself I believe mid and late 80s babies are true 90s kids. To me early 80s babies lean more toward being 80s kids and 90s teens for the most part.

"I can get 1982-1985 being early 90s kids, but that's it. And that's just early"

Sorry Loony but gotta correct you. 82 and 83 babies are barely 90s kids. 84 and 85 babies(my cohort) are primarily 90s kids, not just the early 90s,  Mid to late 80s babies are  true 90s kids, early 80s babies not so much especially those born in 80 and 81. Some people like to use 85 as a cut off year, like there's this line between 85ers and 86ers when people born in these years have alot in common in kid culture we all grew up in. 84 to 88/89 borns have more in common then early 80s borns.

85 is not an early 80s year its a mid 80s year and if people are gonna break decades into two halves(which not correct to begin with) then 85 would be a late 80s year. First five years 80 to 84(early), the last five years 85 to 89(late). This goes for all decades.
