Long story short,

I used to like games like rhythm games like Stepmania and turn based games like Pokemon.
Now I'm buying a lot less of those games.

I used to like magical girl shows like Tokyo Mew Mew and chuunibyou-ish shows like Shakugan no Shana.
The try-hard moments make me cringe now.

I loved lolis and they were my absolute favorites. I was like "NEVER CHANGELOL".
Now I'm seeing quite a bit more big-boobed and more mature looking girls and my attention to lolis seemed lacking sometimes.

^ and she knows it



I honestly miss my old tastes. I'm probably speaking through nostalgia goggles but those were the good days. Do ya'll go through such things?

You're twenty now, if your declared age is to be believed? Yeah, that shit happens, enjoy the ten-year rollercoaster ride you've strapped yourself in for (maybe longer, I'm not yet thirty myself).

uhh....

It kinda just became a broader appreciation of different body types, for me.

Which I'm okay about because now I feel like I'm not completely and single-mindedly obsessed with this crap, like my younger self might have been.

This turned into a weird conversation fast. lol

Ha, that is true, I am a bit trolled by how enduring particular products of electronic media entertainment have been for our generation.

I remember playing Kingdom Hearts in tenth grade and being blown the fuck away that someone translated, and translated well, the feel of JRPG mechanics/epicness into an actiony battle system. Thirteen-and-a-half years later, I am well past the point where I'd be willing to shell out money for console gaming, but am looking forward to watching a playthrough of KH3 on Youtube someday to see the ending to this story which would easily have fit into a single game by PS1 RPG standards.

Like many Millennial kids, I first got into anime by happening to catch DBZ on TOONAMI when they were still airing the Ocean dub. I had read the entire manga in grainy old shit scanlations and watched DBGT fansubbed in the age of .rmbv before finishing puberty, and prided myself on knowing the entire story while the other kids at school eagerly awaited the TOONAMI broadcast of the Android Saga. And now, at the age of twenty-eight, I can watch newly aired episodes of Dragon Ball Super every Sunday.

Pokey the Penguin was my favorite ongoing webcomic when I was thirteen; it remains so today.

I remember sadly tuning into the "last" episode of Red Dwarf on its debut U.S. broadcast in 1999; I plan to watch Series XI when it airs later this year.

To say nothing of the endless revivals of old '80s Hollywood franchises like Rocky and Star Wars. It is all a bit weird considering I am old enough to remember the days when fandoms had to fight tooth and nail to keep even the successful things they liked going.

sad part of growing up. you can still probably get some nostalgia joy out of old shows, but it's you become more diverse. you could cling to the past joys kicking and screaming but then you would stagnate. go back 10 years and if someone asked me to list my top 3 animes, without hesitation i would proudly proclaim

1. Digimon!
2. Witch Hunter Robin!
3. InuYasha!

today, however, it would involve a lot more humming and hawing followed by a statement like 'id don't really have a favourite, but i like...' followed by a rambling list narrowed down by genre. i mean, i'll defend Digimon until my dying breath [though the dub hasn't aged well] and Witch Hunter Robin is still one of my all time favourite animes [still have my wall scroll hanging in my bedroom] but don't mention InuYasha to me, while i still love the dub, and the characters bring fond memories, that series killed my love of anime for a bit thanks to all the filler. to this day when people run up to me with a recommendation i'll shake them off if the series surpasses 24 episodes. very rarely do i watch long series. a series of 12-24 episodes is usually well contained. it's like a delicious piece of cake, you may end up wanting more, but if you're then presented with the whole thing you'll have a bad stomach ache and swear off cake for a while.

i still don't know my genre actually, i'll try a little of everything, i'm currently into comedy, but it wasn't long ago i was all about the slice of life [which i still enjoy] really, my favourite is whatever Lucky Star falls under, but even then it's hit and miss. many people recommend K-On and i found it boring. love love LOVED Non-Non Biyori however, and still need to see Clanned. Anyway, I guess my rambling point is people evolve and change, try new things and find what makes you happiest.

idk either but blerregh










Topic- I'm not so sure if the changes of tastes is specifically due to age or experience. It's like when you see someone pull off a style exceptionally well, you start to like the style itself even when you've never really paid much thought to it before and it may become a preference.

Everybody's tastes change at some time in their life.
