To Satisfy My Nostalgia...

To Satisfy My Nostalgia...

Here's a list of older games I used to play that are still up and running!


I was obsessed with computer games as a kid, so here are some online favorites that are still up! The nostalgia is real!

1. Club Penguin

Everyone loved Club Penguin as a kid! Now, it's new and improved! Membership is free! You heard it--free! The game works the exact same way as the original does. Now, there are more parties, celebrity appearances, and options to choose from in catalogs. You can collect stamps for double the coins in games. Parties feature limited edition clothes, hidden pins, and backgrounds. Puffles can be hoarded or cared for individually. I forgot how much I missed this game and starting at my screen intently for hours while my penguin mined and racked up coins. Club Penguin Rewritten saved my nostalgia!

2. Webkinz

Webkinz used to be SO expensive back in the day! The stuffed animals were ridiculously priced and soon forgotten once their unique code was entered on the site, unlocking the animal online. Webkinz made a ton of money off their target, but is now online free of charge. That's right -- Webkinz is free! I made a dummy account for laughs just to test it out and the rumors are true! You don't need a unique stuffed animal code to have an account anymore. Granted, some of the pet options are limited, but isn't the concept of the game still cherished? Along with its free membership, Webkinz sports trendy and annoying ads on its page, more now than ever before!

3. Purble Place

I remember this game was on the first laptop I ever owned. I used to play it all the time, but I vaguely remember the purpose of the game. Apparently, it is available for download to this day, but the websites look kind of sketchy and virus-y.

4. Rollercoaster Tycoon

This game used to be on a disc. Now they made it downloadable on PC for about $1! They also made different versions of the game, but the overall premise is still present.

5. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?

Following the creation of the hit computer game from the early 90s, the American TV show Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego began to air. Now, there is word about an upcoming Carmen Sandiego film starring Gina Rodriguez! The game itself was based off Detective Sandiego's career while successfully completing crime-stopping adventures. It was thrilling, addicting, and sure to pass the time.

10 Jonas Brother Songs That Complete The Perfect 2008 Nostalgia Playlist

My prepubescent 12-year-old self is still fangirling.


2019 is the year of the comebacks, with the most infamous one being the Jonas Brothers. My prepubescent 12-year-old self is still fangirling. I never thought the day would come where we would get another bop from the jo bros. In honor of this glorious event, I am counting down their best songs to date.

10. "When You Look Me In The Eyes"

This song is on this list only for my mother's sake. She almost fist fought someone during the burning up a tour and went on a rant because they were not going to play this. (They did for the encore)

9. "Year 3000"

This makes the list as number 9 because it was not only the first song that made me fall in love with them, but it also made me want to buy a Kelly Clarkson album.

8. "Play My Music"

Now granted, this was on the camp rock album it still is one of the best songs in their career. Every time they would play this on the Disney channel I would literally jump out of my seat to dance and pretend I was at their concert.

7. "Pom Poms"

The weak attempt at their first comeback due to creative differences gave us this gem. I will always play this at my cousin's soccer game due to the upbeat vibe and positivity it gives.

6. "Hold On"

This brought me to tears at the tender age of 9, with my imaginary boyfriend.

5. "We Got The Party" ft. Hannah Montana

Sweet Mama, this song is great for a summer day.

4. "Sucker"

This second attempt at a comeback was so much better than the first. This song is definitely the song of the summer.

3. "Lovebug"

This really put me in my bag and still does in 2019.

2. "S.O.S"

Kevin's dance to this made everything.

1. "Burning Up"

This was the first rap I memorized and is the most iconic song of 2008.
