So, this question applies to anything - Games, movies, music, etc. Are there any types of media that you never experienced at its time of release, that when you finally got around to it, gave you a huge nostalgic feeling even though you didn't grow up with it?
My pick for games would be Beyond Good and Evil. Everyone told me it was good, but I never gave it a shot until I found the PC version being sold in the bargain section of Target around 2014. But actually playing it evoked a feeling I haven't gotten since the PS2/XBOX/GC era of gaming. It was a polished love letter to action-adventure gaming at a time when it was just a standard procedure to release games FINISHED. It gave me huge Wind Waker vibes as well, but maybe I'm a little biased considering Wind Waker is my favorite Zelda (next to Majora's Mask.)
For music, it would be "Consequence Free" by Great Big Sea. I just heard it randomly pop up in my Pandora playlist a few years ago, and instantly wrote the name down so I wouldn't forget it. It's the kind of song I can imagine hearing in the car on a long road trip with my grandparents down to the San Francisco beach. Even though I haven't heard it until pop was already well into its dying years, it still, as with the above entry, evokes feelings of an era long gone.
Movies, I don't really have a pick. I want to say Marley and Me, but that movie isn't that old. I might just be having a placebo feeling right now since I just watched it last night.
Have any of you ever had similar experiences?
