Was probably the best decade because the economy was changing. Nowadays people care more about when the next iphone, blackberry, or droid is coming out than improving the economy. This was back when video games added lots of new, creative and original things to them. Now all people want is the next Call of Duty and Halo. This was the time when network's like Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network actually lived up to there names. Now there's all this teeny bopper crap on there.
