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?

  • Walking into Zora's domain for the first time in Ocarina of Time. It just felt so magical and the music was on point. I hung out there for like an hour just running around and exploring every corner.

    On top of that, I was absolutely GUTTED when you go back as adult Link and it's frozen over.

    Loved the the magical music it had inside. Made it feel so cool! Awesome that they kinda "remade" it for Zora's Domain in BoTW too
