I'm not sure why, but there seems to be an enduring Nostalgia for video games from the early 2000s. Recently, one user took a trip down memory lane to 2004, reminiscing about beloved titles like Ratchet & Clank 3, DBZ Budokai 3, and NFS U2, to name a few. They also mentioned other noteworthy games such as Black Ops 2 and Skate 3.

There's something about the solid games of the late 2000s and early 2010s that evokes a sense of pure gaming bliss. Whether it's the nostalgic factor or simply because many of us were younger and had fewer responsibilities, it's hard not to get excited when people share their personal experiences.

Of course, not everyone shares the same sentiment. Some express the opinion that the years since then have been even better. The replies vary greatly, with some mentioning additional gems like MGS3, Def Jam FFNY, and Prince of Persia Warrior Within. There may be more games that escape my memory, but let's not digress any further.

Among the discussions, there are mentions of The Sims 2, which unfortunately became unplayable due to the switch to the Origin client, locking the game to a single account. However, there are still dedicated players who enjoy titles like Unreal Tournament 2004 and Dawn of War to this day.

One user fondly recalls their childhood gaming experiences, playing these games on a small TV and a family computer. They express a desire for an Unreal Tournament 2004 remake, but are disappointed that resources were redirected to Fortnite, leaving this wish unfulfilled. They also express hope for sequels or remasters of other beloved games, such as the original Monster Hunter and Painkiller.

Additionally, they share a personal anecdote about watching a commander play WoW while in the army. Another user mentions an amusing coincidence, the release of Half-Life 2 and GTA: San Andreas around the same time.

Amidst the banter, there are humorous comments about the repetitive nature of these posts, with some suggesting discussing other games like Evil Genius.

The user also expresses disappointment with the highly anticipated game Fable, acknowledging that many years in the 2000s and beyond have brought great games.

“But you know what? I'll give you 2004. But not 2011. I liked 2011 too, but it just felt like a follow-up to that previous year.”

They also share a reply where various users mention additional games from that era, such as MGS3, Def Jam FFNY, and Prince of Persia Warrior Within.

“I know there are some people who get irritated by these posts, but I also know there are people like me who are genuinely interested in what people played and enjoyed during a certain time.
