I was reading a book (Simon Stålenhag's Tales From The Loop) on my lunch break, hoping to catch a package delivery, when a particular passage mentioned the narrator recognizing a particular memory as being the first time he experienced nostalgia. It was interesting to me: normally one focuses on the past they felt nostalgic for, but in this instance it was a reflection on a past feel of nostalgia.

I struggle to think of what my first feeling of nostalgia was, but I among the earliest came about from watching a Charlie Brown and Snoopy cartoon where they gi looking for the farm they bought Snoopy from. They find life has moved on and the a parking garage now stands in its place. The line, referencing some intellectual (whose name is lost to me) struck a chord in my young, displaced mind: "I guess [they] were right; you really can't go home again."

 

So, do you remember your first nostalgic moment?

When i watched some videos about maplestory.

I had than this strange pressure on my chest and got sad because i can remember when i played it the first time.

I played maplestory with 8 or 9 years and i still enjoy it but sadly cant play it because of hackshield .

And i got a second  feeling of nostalgia when i saw new season of the anime pretty cure because i remember watching the first season as kid and i loved it.

I can't pinpoint one feeling, as I had a lot of it once I hit a certain age, but I think this one was around the time that they first made the announcement about old Pokemon cartridge batteries dying.  I got a sudden rush of memories about my first Pokemon journey, the ups and downs, and it compelled me to go looking for it.  To my shock, mine still worked, and I went through my Pokemon, just remembering how it first felt to play the game and how attached I was to my Pokemon.  It's the reason I started playing the games again, in fact.

I don't remember my first time feeling that way. I've never lived in one place for very long, so lots of moments trigger some sort of nostalgia. 

You just learn to stop feeling, it's for the best.

It's hard to pinpoint the very first moment of nostalgia but one of the strongest nostalgia moments for me was when I heard one particular video game OST. It was Cave Story+ which I had just bought.  I used to play that game when I was a kid and there was this very catchy opening tune and as soon as I heard it, I recognized it. Instant and strong moment of nostalgia struck me. I had remembered the music for so long yet I didn't know where it originated from. I was so relieved to have it finally rediscovered. 

Needless to say, Cave Story is just as good as I remembered. Even better now that I can read in English and actually know how to play a game properly. I Highly recommend you give it a try.

recalling certain scenes from my early, early childhood in the twin cities.

it was a tiny section of my life but so vastly separate from anything since then. so I had "nostalgic" thoughts at a young age.

Too fucking young to feel it, especially then.

But regardless, the first time is when I broke my Fallout New Vegas disc in a spectacular fashion that involved a fuckedup Xbox and an avalanche of poorly stacked items. After a few months I saw the case and, it made me miss it.

 

Now I just miss the old me.

 

I got a new disc.

I can't pinpoint a specific one, but a very strong one recently was listening to the song Killer Queen for the first time in 12 years. One of my very early memories was when I was about 4 years old. I was sitting in the back of my dad's car, and it was raining outside. I was looking out the window, and I very specifically remembered a song playing, but I didn't know what the song was called. 12 years later, and I find myself listening to Queen, right? Well, I click on a song called Killer Queen randomly, and behold, that's the song!
