Top 10 Worst Types of NostalgiatardsThere's different types of Nostalgiatards. Regardless of what type they are, they always manage to be annoying. Something that genuinely isn't surprising at all. What do you consider to be the worst type of nostalgiatards? Being a nostalgiatard is not a good thing.
The Top Ten
I used to be like this up until maybe a year ago. Just about all of the mainstream music since 2010 has been terrible. Then I discovered some non mainstream bands like King Gizzard. While there is some good music this decade, it's not as good as the music from the late 60s-early 2000s.
The most common type. They usually whine about how modern music sucks, and how *BLANK*'s decade was superior than today's music. It makes me question if they even bothered to listen to the non mainstream music of this decade. Which isn't even that bad but oh well.
I agree these ones are so annoying. Maybe it's because I don't like either decade of music but seriously I don't seem to find what's so good about old music
Honestly every decade has bad songs. Sure 2010s music hasn’t exactly been the best but people who say like THE 80s WAS THE BEST DECADE FOR MUSIC are kinda blind
This list wouldn't be complete without this type. They usually prefer 80s/90s cartoons over modern cartoons. They have very biased reasoning towards modern cartoons. Regardless of the animation quality or if the voice acting isn't even that bad.
True, they're probably the worst nostalgists.

I heavily disagree. Mainly because I am a somewhat video game nostalgist myself so I'll voice my opinion on the video game controversy. But honestly in my opinion a lot of new video games are the same or try to focus more on reallistic graphics and complex gameplay than fun and simple gameplay. Now of course that does not go for all video games, I mean Nintendo got better as time went on until it went slightly downhill in 2015 do make pretty awesome games but I miss when games actually taught you stuff like vocabulary and required to you think what action you should do. Sierra Entertainment video games are the most prominent examples in my opinion. Most games nowadays lack a sense of this and it's like almost completely obvious what you are going to do which adds no challenge almost.
One of the most annoying types out there. They'll act like old videogames weren't bad or questionable at all yet hate every new one that has come out. Half of Nintendo's fanbase is guilty of this. Especially some of the Mario fanbase.
Also, they often blatantly overlook the fact that more-or-less all of Nintendo's SNES sequels to its first-party NES and GameBoy games were also basically remakes of said games (meaning that the trend has been going on for considerably longer than most of them seem to give it credit for)
Do these count? Anyway, they just bash on the new games just because they are new and aren't Gen 1
Extremely pretentious and annoying. Not to mention like any decade the 90s did have its flaws. No decade is truly flawless. That's a truth that I feel like most nostalgiatards ignore. Doesn't surprise me though.
90s Kids hate everything from 2000-
Very easy to encounter these people. One of the biggest examples is the Star Wars fanbase. Who literally bash every new Star Wars movie that has came out because it "ruined" Star Wars for them. There's probably more examples that I didn't list.
I think a lot of newer movies are better than older
These people are such ungrateful retards, like be thankful you have internet and have advanced medicine and science and that we live in more peaceful times compared to the past
Oh boy these guys suck. They whine and moan about everything in this generation and caught up in the past
I ran out of item ideas, but yeah these people are just obnoxious as the other ones on this list.
I was born in the right generation because I have access to lots of stuff like Duolingo
The 2nd most common type. Similar to the music one they complain about modern T.V. shows a lot. It doesn't help that they're pretentious either. I'd recommend avoiding these types of people at all costs. To put it simply trying to reason with them is not worth it.
One of the most biased types of nostalgiatards out there. They ignore some of the flaws of the 2000s such as: The war with Iraq, 9/11, the bad unemployment rate of 2008 and so much more. You can find some of them on this site. But granted you probably already expected that.
Another example of how pretentious nostalgiatards can be. They act as if their favorite decade had no flaws. When in reality, that's far from the truth. Like most nostalgiatards their reasoning is weak and pathetic. You probably already knew that.
They're not completely wrong though in my opinion. Even though Gen-1 had questionable pokemon like Muk and Pidgey, I think on average, Gen-1 was on average better than a lot of more recent gens. My favourite gen is Gen-3 though followed by Gen-2 and Gen-1
These are people who only like the first generation and say all newer Pokémon have bad designs (even though there are bad designs in the first generation too, which Genwunners tend to ignore)
Never encountered one of these before...
