10 Signs You Were A Gamer In The 90s

The 90s was a great time to be a kid and a gamer. Some might argue it was the best time for gaming—there were no micro-transactions or online passes, and heavy hitters like Nintendo, Sega and Square Enix were knocking them out of the park with every release.

Talk to any gamer in their twenties now about their top favorite games and it's practically guaranteed they'll go into a nostalgia-tinged rant about a Mario, Pokémon or Final Fantasy game from the 90s. And rightfully so, since those were some of the best games ever made.

Man that picture makes me think of my younger days... Sitting on the floor with a Nintendo, SNES, Genesis, etc., a big ol' box TV, and some snacks on the side. Good times... Good times...

3-4-51998d ago that I think about it...a good portion of my younger days we were on the floor gaming..

why didn't we think to use chairs or pull the couch closer ?

Maybe we were too excited to start the game.

Nostalgia More often than not means the game was actually good/fun and it's not just your memory.

We don't get Nostalgic about games that sucked do we ?

Ah yes, when playing a game didn't feel like you had to sign a contract first, multiplayer felt more social due to physical interaction through both arcades and split screen,
the war of consoles felt more hilarious and enjoyable due to to funny commercials which were friendly nudges, when a game sucked it was treated as such without creators calling gamers names (entitled, alarmists,etc), unlockables were FREE!!!!!

*nods* Not to mention developers could focus less on graphics and more on gameplay.
