Thread What tech jump in the last 20 years made you go? WOW!
We were early adopters of DSL from 56k so that was pretty mindblowing. Going from not really using the internet ever to coming home from school and watching Gamespot's live shows was amazing. That is the closest to 20 years ago, slightly longer than that it was seeing the Dreamcast compared to the N64 in a Best Buy. I was a later adopter of a smartphone and high speed internet so the wow factor was already normalized by then. Oh! Going from playing DOOM at ~30fps on low settings to 140-150fps with everything on a newly launched 1070 and new 144hz monitor was phenomenal.
