Do you miss the fun and thrill of playing the game Fingerboard (skateboard) back in your childhood days? Well, many know it by its popular name Tech Deck.
Does it ring a bell now?
You may or may not have played Fingerboard when you were a kid, but I'll bet you've seen Tech Deck. The great finger skateboards gained popularity when they came out in 1994. Back then, we used to call ourselves Fingerboarders.
A fingerboard was a person who played the game exemplary. There used to be these small skateboards that you could pull apart, making them smaller and easier to carry around. They were called the tech decks. If you haven't heard of them, then read on. This post is for you!
The Fingerboarding Nostalgia
What's old is new again! If you...
GeezeZone is all about nostalgia and the good old days. Today, I decided to reflect on the past and how nostalgia plays a big role in our lives.
We have been gaining organic visits every day. This is something that we should not take for granted. It means many people love to connect with the things that made their days back then. We love looking back at the past and enjoying the moments.
Nostalgia is a powerful emotion that certain people experience. It's an emotional feeling that reminds people of things that they themselves experienced in their childhood or most recent memories.
In this article, you'll find out why nostalgia has such a significant impact on us as human beings, and also learn about the 90s Nostalgia Effect and how it...
Discovering the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game must be one of the best things that happened to me in my childhood. I can still remember how it felt when I first discovered it and how much time I spent playing with my friends on weekends.
Today we will talk about those fond memories of a game that many would have forgotten. And by the way, which Yu Gi Oh card are you?
Yu-Gi-Oh! The Nostalgia of the Game
We all remember playing Yu-Gi-Oh! as kids. Those evenings spent battling friends and family, or even just trying to win that one epic duel against our opponent, were some of the best memories we ever had. Yu-Gi-Oh! was a game that was all about nostalgia for many of us - and it's no wonder because the card game is based on the classic...
When you think of the past years, what comes to mind? What's your first thought when you hear the words "nostalgia" or "2000s?" For many people, they might recall memories of watching their favorite TV shows like Friends, The West Wing, Heroes, and Will & Grace. The '90s even took it a notch higher with hit series that you just can't forget.
Now that we're on the verge of a new decade and have a few of our own TV shows to watch in this new decade, it's time for us to reflect on some other memorable television shows from the 2000s - and what better way than with a blog article!
It's hard to believe it's been almost a decade since the last season of Friends aired on television. And in that time, the show has become one of the most...
Do you remember the first time playing the Pokemon Trading Card Game? I do. The excitement of opening up a new pack of cards and seeing what was inside, the thrill of trying to collect all 151 non-evolutionary Pokemon, and completing my Pokedex - it's impossible to explain how magical this game was as a kid.
And now, twenty years later, I find myself enjoying the game in a whole new way. As an adult (with an adult income), I've discovered that Pokemon TCG is good for more than just playing with friends or family. It's also a great game to play on your own.
Background History of Pokémon Trading Card Game and Gameplay
The Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG) was first released in Japan in 1996 and quickly became one of the most popular games...
Ren and Stimpy are Some of the Most Unappreciated Cartoon Characters Ever
When the classic Ren & Stimpy show was taken off air in 1996 and no one could find it online, i was devastated because it was one of my favorite shows back then. however, I was happy to find out that the show had a huge following and many people are calling for a reboot of the show.
Ren & Stimpy is a cartoon show that aired on Nickelodeon from 1991-1996. It was one of the most popular cartoons during its time and was created by John Kricfalusi, who is now known for creating the show "SpongeBob SquarePants".
Ren & Stimpy are some of the most underappreciated cartoon characters ever. They are also considered as one of the greatest cartoons in history. The show had...
The late ‘90s marked a lot of changes in many sectors in the United States. But the technology, gaming, and computing sectors made a major leap back then. It was at this time that animation and gaming took center stage.
Many different players in the gaming industry provided cutting-edge gaming experiences through their new and upgraded consoles at the time. This heightened the competition at the time and so did the quality of the animation and game.
Around 1998, Spyro The Dragon came into existence. This was one of my favorite games back then. I guess it is just because I loved the looks and the antiques of the purple dragon. I could just not get enough of him.
Back then, we would play the game and look for cheats online for the...
Apart from Nickelodeon and Cartoon network, any other Cable TV network of the 90s you remember? Do you have a recollection of the Boomerang? Back then, we used to identify the cable network with some of the best series and cartoons.
The early 90s marked an era of rapid technological advancement in many sectors of the economy. TV and movie industry was among the top industries to enjoy the goodies that Silicon Valley presented. Cameras, the internet, movie equipment, and everything that depended on technology to work improved tenfold during this period.
Even the distribution of movies and TV series at the time was enhanced. Thanks to the introduction of many other new cable networks and acquisitions that increased the chances of shows...
It has been a while since I last posted. How is the new year going? How about your resolutions? I hope you are holding up fine. With the war between Russia and Ukraine, things have been moving so fast with all the attention of the world and media taken by the events happening over there. This has come at a time when people are just recovering from the pandemic that destroyed the economies of almost all the countries in the world. It is not a good time or a war!
But that should not stop us from taking our little trips back in time and re-live the peaceful times we had back then. Today I bumped into the Kidz Bop music on YouTube. It brought all the memories of the good old days. Just when the millennium was settling in. The early 2000s...
It has been a while since we last talked about the popular and nostalgic toys of back in the days. Today I have been inspired to write about the Lego after watching the movie. This took me back in time when the I first received my Lego set. At that time, it was the best present one could have. I loved the creativity that the Lego toys instilled in us back then.
Background History of the Lego Construction Toys
The Lego construction toys have been adopted into many forms. There are movies, series, toys and even buildings that have been built with the Lego concept in mind. The Lego have really evolved over the years and this has made Lego remains one of the most popular brands in the world.
Because the company’s founder started off...
It has been a minute since our last post. How are the holidays? It has been a busy last leg of the year. But we cannot close it up without going back in time as usual and looking at the not so old but classic shows of the early to mid-2000s. Today, I was going through the archives and bumped into The Brak Show! This ignited the memories of the good old days. Those days when sitcoms were the thing. The animated sitcom was a slightly new concept at the time. I immediately became a mad fan sitcom in general. Who doesn’t love laughing anyway?
I guess the fact that The Brak Show had the adult swim, made it even more appealing at the time. Just like Family Guy and other similar shows with an adult type of content, it made it become even more...
Nostalgia and Its Psychology
The idea of reminiscence appears to be evident at the start. When you see a videogame you used to play as a youngster, a title that seems like one you used to play as a small child brings back memorable moments. But let's take a closer look: Why does my mind desire to play in the first place? Retro gaming can elicit sentimental ideas, perceptions, and sensations. This is an excellent illustration of what occurs when the mind's recollection and incentive systems collaborate. A noise, a fragrance, a specific picture, or a concept can all elicit a happy remembrance. This causes dopamine, a chemical implicated in joy and reactivity, to be generated from a person's rewarding area in mind. Individuals searching...
The 90’s was a nice period for the gaming world. As most of the game manufacturers were upgrading their gadget with even more innovative features, while others were trying the waters with completely new products. Sega was already on top of the list with some of the best-selling consoles in the United States and across the world. The Game Gear was one of the top handheld gaming consoles by Sega that was released in the 90s. You could confuse this console with the Game Boy. Although Game Gear had its own distinct features that differentiated it from the rest of the handheld consoles at the time.
This console had an amazing history that I could resist but write about it. As we take yet another nostalgic trip back in time courtesy of the...
What comes to mind when I say the word "Nokia"? I'm sure 'nostalgia' will indeed be among the top replies for a fair number of individuals. However, there is one aspect of Nokia that everybody is familiar with, and I will mainly focus on in today's Article, which is Snake. Snake is a game available on old handsets, specifically the Nokia phone series.
Now, of course, over the years, the famous Snake Game evolved as Nokia released more modern phones, and eventually, the renowned title lies waiting for eternity in history. So, why don't we take a walk down memory lane and dive into it?
Nokia wasn't the initial business to release a Snake application gadget. However, because of the game's accessibility, versions date back to 1976...
How old were your when you made your first post in a forum or “bulletin board” as we used to call them in the 90s and early 2000s? Well, today we take a look back at the home of community interactions. The boards have been and will forever be in existence for many years to come. Even with the strong appeal of the social medial over the web forums, the technology is still evolving and it is even becoming better by the day with even high-quality niched down discussion compared to social medial.
Today I figured we can take a look at the mother or father of all bulletin boards. The vBulletin, its history and evolution over time. Even as the competition become stiff from the likes of Xenforo and MyBB, vBulletin has remain steadfast and...
It has been a while since we had a retro review of the devices of the ‘90s and the 2000s. Today, I feel motivated to go back to the nostalgic days of the Nokia. The days when Nokia was still the top mobile phone company. What strikes my mind is the Nokia N-GAGE gaming mobile.
The early 2000s saw the rise of the mobile smartphones. Different companies came up with unique futuristic designs of their phones with additional features to win the clients. Nokia, being a leader, predicted the growth in the gaming industry. And because of that, they released the N-GAGE, which was a perfect combination of a phone and a gaming device. This device did not sell as much as the standard phones, mostly because of the ergonomics, but I loved the look...
