What do you miss about the old days?

Recommended Posts

I love this tread. Agree with many or most of the offerings.


Here's some flying ones.

- leg room (I'm 6 foot 4", I can't afford first class or business class)

- free baggage check in.

- a choice between a steak dinner and chicken cord don blue.

- real utensils

- real glasses

- a pillow, free

- a blanket, free

- no preboard screening of my private parts

- no scanning of my private carryon

- neck, no screening at all

- no endless, platinum, gold, silver, business..and any other card holder privileges for boarding.

- guests sitting with you while you wait to board a plane

- being greeted right at the boarding station by your family instead of 2 miles away down endless corridors and security protocol areas.

- being able to bring my own food, drink onto a plane

- did I mention leg room.


There are probably many more.

Some of their scenery was even better than most payware today, despite it being for older sims and not having the graphics tools of today. In fact, I still use a number of them.


I have everything of theirs installed :)))

As a child I miss coming home from school having a quick snack and going straight out to play with the neighbourhood kids.


The games were all "make believe" without reliance on electronic devices or expensive toys.


Often stayed out after dark without worrying about being abducted (or worse) and many times invited to stay for dinner and then walked home.


This was before most houses had television.

I miss when very many fliers were using CRT monitors running Nvidia 3D and wired shutter glasses. Also in racing sims (so much easier to see the curves fast approaching ahead). 

AMD Ryzen5 3600 cpu, 2060 SUPER gpu, 600 Watt Gold Thermaltake psu, 2K 32" Sceptre curved monitor, 16 GB RAM. Entire system including monitor under $1400 iBuyPower (IBP brand had best user reviews at BestBuy).
