Man, I just found 4 unopened Tamogachis at Goodwill a few weeks back. I had to double take because it's like holy crap these remained unopened for 20 years??

Also born in 1997: my undying love for Taylor Hanson.
I was in high school in 1997, so I remember all those things. Crazy how time flies! Happy birthday!
Wow! That is an amazing list of movies! Has to be one of the better years ever for Hollywood
What I remember from 1997 is the excellent dealmac forum, where so much helpful information was shared and accumulated for years. Until someone senselessly decided to change the format of the forum, ruining participation, destroying the friendly community and losing the stored knowledge.
