This year is the 10th anniversary of Trackmania!

We should celebrate, this is a very special year for the franchise, and I believe Nadeo would agree, speaking of which, are you guys from the Nadeo Team are planning to make a video to celebrate? Like how it was made with the 5th anniversary of the game?

After reading this I noticed I still have the box I purchased back in 2004 sitting on my shelf from the Original game before it was even called "Original". Didn't realize it's been nearly 10 years!
I shot this photo of the box yesterday... for nostalgic reasons...

I'm pretty sure they are preparing something cool for the 10 year !

I'm proud to be a TM & SM player since 2003 (I never missed one game !), and I have only 23 years old ! :yes:

Thx for all the fun Nadeo ! :thumbsup:

Yeps, me too. When I TM I loved just sitting and building, and I never thought it would go this far. At least till I saw TM Sunrise at Wal-Mart XD.
But can you have nostalgia for a game that's only ten years old?

I always have to pretend to have nostalgia for games twenty years old...

Nostalgic? Sure, why not? I think anything from the past the makes you smile could be considered nostalgic no matter how long ago it was. It reminds me of when you could buy a game in a box at a store. Sure there are still a lot of them but they are slowly fading away. I liked being able to buy a game, install it and play it. Didn't have to go online to activate it, you could reinstall it if you had to without having to re-download etc...

...But what makes me call TrackMania nostalgic is that I remember looking for a good driving game with a track editor and there really weren't any. There were some with good driving but you could only build small tracks with very limited blocks or the opposite, a good editor but crappy physics or poor graphics. Then I found one called "TrackMania" and thought it sounded promising. I bought the game, installed it and found myself thinking, "Wow. Someone finally did this right!" It had Great graphics, Good physics and above all an awesome track editor with enough room to build HUGE tracks (as big as you wanted them) lot's of blocks to build with and fun to drive on. You could really let your creativity go wild. You could race online with other people or race against your own replays (the ultimate challenge). Plus it had many ways to play... Race, Stunt, Puzzle, Platform. It's the only game I've found with endless re-playability.
So, when I look back and remember that feeling of finding a gem... Yea, I find it nostalgic. :D

I remember being wierded out playing Survival mode and realizing there were no collisions, and everybody started from the same spot.
But back then the only thing I thought that could improve the game was a singleplayer mode with actual AI. I've always been a singleplayer-only fan for most games... So TM stands out for making me like the multiplayer I guess. Not many games have done that. The lack of AI might have something to do with that XD. And that's probably why rounds games are my very snarky favourite.
