This is why I don't like Sonic now, people bitched about it not being nostalgic enough and completely ruined it for me. :l
Might as well extend this to furry fandom. I didn't get into furry fandom because of nostalgia, I got into it because I genuinely like the concept of anthro, and I feel the people that got into it just because it makes them feel like a kid again water it down and give everyone else a bad image. (As if we didn't already have a bad enough one. :V)
It's never going to be properly respected by anyone if everyone views it as full of manchildren that refuse to grow the hell up. I have a hard enough time assuring people there is nothing childish about the things that I do without people trying to say the exact opposite.
Why base actions on nostalgic memories anyway? That type of thing seems batshit insane to me, it's like being obsessed with food or some other disorder people should probably go to therapy for.
