5 nostalgic video games ’90s gamers will remember

Certain video games mean different things to people and, during the mid-to-late ’90s, a ton of influential titles made their way to game consoles. (Culture, Final Fantasy VI, Pokemon Red, Retro, Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)

I totally forgot about Golden Eye. I wish I remembered to add it.

I hate to be that guy, but Golden Eye was just okay if you were already were playing PC shooters... Sorry N4G.

Turok 2...forgot how much I loved that game

Yeah that game was great it had that weird (and uber rare)feeling of immersion when you played combined ancient ruin environments with sci-fi, dinosaurs, awesome weapons and a dreary feeling, it gave me the chills back then!

aah the days of JRPG's like FF VI, how I miss them. Now we get nothing but westernized hybrid crap with a few exceptions here and there like Ni No Kuni.

Ni No Kuni is pretty awesome. It's one of the first JRPGs to remind me of the epic that was Final Fantasy VI.

I remember spending countless quarters on Street Fighter 2 just to beat Bison; or when Killer Instinct was first brought to the arcades and we didn't think fighting games could get any better; or when Tekken 3 was proof that Namco could make a near flawless fighter; or when Gran Turismo was the first simulator for PlayStation and you actually learned to drive correctly; the list can go on forever.

I miss the 90's gaming scene, too bad a lot of the newer generation will never know what it's like to game in the golden age of gaming. I'm not talking just emulators either, I'm talking actually waiting at Funcoland/Babbages (for those who remember) for Mortal Kombat 2 to be put on the shelves just to argue with other gamers on who gets what.

And there was a sense of variety as lots of games were unique.
