We often feel like we miss the good old times too much, and we think that we are not alone, as many people out there probably miss something from the 90s, just like we do. We were glad to see that many people on Reddit shared the things from the 90s they would like to have back, despite being outdated in 2022. This is why the list below exists. It shares some amazing suggestions. You can read the whole discussion on Reddit.
1. The video stores
This person mentioned one of the things that we miss the most, and we wish these stores are back in some form. Browsing through the endless catalog was an awesome experience.
2. The apartment
Here is just how much life has changed for the past 30 years, and this is only the financial part of things. There are a lot of other things we’d like to have back.
3. The costs
Being alive today is not easy, as even the essentials and the commodities you can’t go by are a lot more expensive than they were back in the day.
4. The soda
The surge soda we remember had the taste no other drink could replicate. It seems that we are not the only ones who miss this drink. Someone should start producing it again.
5. The politics
We know this is a sensitive topic, but many people seem to have lost their trust in politicians after these particular events took place, and we all remember it like it was yesterday.
6. The economy
We understand that today is very different from yesterday, and tomorrow will be even more different, but we had it better in the 90s, we believe.
7. The housing
We remember how much easier and cheaper it was to buy a home back in the day, and we are not exactly sure what went wrong or when, but we need to admit that it is impossible to buy a decent home for cheap today.
8. The kid
Those who were kids in the 90s tend to miss everything from that era, and it is understandable why that happens. Kids associate everything about their childhood with good vibes, at least most of them.
9. The hip-hop music
The golden years of hip-hop are long gone, and we are certain that songs like the ones we used to listen to non-stop back in the day will live forever, as they are legendary.
10. The MTV
We still remember the days in which “I want my MTV” was a popular saying, and it seems that MTV became the phenomenon that many people still miss today.
11. The youth
This is one of the main reasons why people sometimes miss the 90s, and we believe that there are many things about being a kid in the 90s that are no longer present today.
12. The daily life
Today’s life is different from the 90s, and we believe that we are not the only ones to think that it was way easier to live in the 90s, as the life we live today is more stressful.
13. The songs
This person pointed to the way we were thinking, and we cannot stress enough just how much we miss the old-school music that generated hundreds of world-class songs.
14. The body
There is no doubt this is the thing that would be easy to relate to if you are 30 or more. There was a time our bodies did not make a single sound.
15. The privacy
Here is how something that we think we have today was a lot more realistic back in the day. We used to have real privacy, without any social media or pictures of every step of the way.
16. The phones
Phone addiction is a real thing, and we believe that people out there would hardly admit this, but it is the truth. It is something we were free from back in the day.
17. The tuition
Here is the kind of thing that we believe we believe should be restored – college tuitions. People today are forced to pay a fortune for their education.
18. The relations
This post is very true, and it speaks about something we hardly think about or talk about, for that matter. This person has a point, and we could not agree more.
19. The home phones
Having a landline was the only means of communication back in the day. We have phones in our pockets today, but we still think we are more stressed than before.
20. The hair
Being young is a blessing we never understand until it is too late and we become people in their middle age who need to be careful about what they eat in order to stay healthy.
21. The communication
This is one of the best posts on the list, as it states the kind of thing we miss a lot. We remember what it was like to communicate with each other for real, not using chats and messages.
22. The future
The future always seemed brighter back in the day, and we are not sure of the exact reasons why this is a fact. We just know it and we believe others would confirm that.
23. The products
This person paid attention to something we can confirm. The overall feeling we get from everything around us is that the quality of everything has dropped.
24. The connection
This is one of the things that we accept as an advantage today, but we know that not being able to reach someone 24/7 means less stress, and that is a fact we cannot argue with.
25. The cellphones
The long period of having Nokia phones around was a great time. Long before the smartphone era, we used to enjoy these rugged, indestructible pieces of tech that are still cool today.
26. The plane
We live in a challenging time today, and we understand that the reality we put up with on a daily basis will probably change. Still, it was way easier back then.
27. The malls
Some parts of the world still have indoor malls which are the best place to be on a cold day, but there seems to be a trend of replacing those.
28. The games
Offline video games were a huge thing back in the day, and we believe that it was an amazing experience. We have a bundle of things to choose from today, but that was something special.
29. The software
This is something that we remember well, and we wish things were that easier once again. All the mentioned software instantly used to become our property after making a payment.
30. The web pages
We all used to enjoy having these pages, as they made our lives a lot easier, not to mention the purposes behind the whole thing that are different today.
31. The stereo systems
We have endless streams of music on our phones these days, but we also miss the old days when we used to have stereo systems, Walkmans, and CDs.
32. The cartoons
We miss these cartoons, and we have no shame in admitting it. There are multiple cartoon channels today, but it is not the same as waiting for your favorite TV series.
33. The Tamagotchi
It seems that there were a lot of trendy things we enjoyed in the 90s, but these small electronic pets were something we all loved and wanted to have.
