Which past gaming year/moment would you time travel to? ("Time Loader" Keys - Ended)

If you could time travel, which past gaming moment or year would you return to?

"Time Loader" is a game about returning to the past, with tons of nostalgia for the 90s.
If you had a time machine and could travel to the past, which year or moment in gaming would you return to - and why?
Do you have fond memories of a certain time in your life with gaming, favorite game/console releases, or gaming cultural moments? Alternatively - are you having the most fun gaming in the present day?

Let me know why in the comments below, and in a few hours I'll DM Steam keys for "Time Loader" to thoughtful replies! (All done for today!)

  • My fondest memories when it comes to gaming would have to come from Christmas as a kid. My parents would go out of their way to buy me and my sibling whatever new console or portable device had just come out. Even if they weren't in the best position financially they would find a way to make it happen. If I could travel back in time I would probably revisit anyone of these Christmases since non of them mean more than the other.
