21 Gaming Memories Only 90s Kids Will Have

WC: "No time was more magical for gamers than the 90s, it was a time when games were still a little wobbly on their feet as technology fought to catch up with the grand ideas of developers. Today, graphical fidelity is astounding, but it’s not astounding enough to make us forget those early years where every new world was filled with exciting discoveries that we would go on to cherish for the rest of our lives.

Games have a unique and powerful trick up their sleeves when it comes to connecting with an audience in a way that film, television or books simply cannot. This being the fact that the player does not simply observe a world and its story – they become a part of the world and a central figure in the story. Video games afford the player levels of freedom and interaction not possible in other mediums, and so they often find themselves on a fast-track to the deepest places in our hearts, like cats and fireworks… or Shigeru Miyamoto."

really? "click next to continue reading" i wonder how many clicks and ad revenue they miss out on simply beacuse of greed, and one click not being enough.

Snookies121377d ago

Yep, I'd have no issue if it was just split into two halves. I'm not even bothering to continue reading when I have to click to another page for each one, though...

thorstein1377d ago

Totally agree. Great article, too many clicks. I would even go as far as 3-4 pages if there were 21 memories.

But this is ridiculous.

equal_youth1377d ago

this list brings some awesome memories back.

MWH1377d ago

I like the title. i feel privilidged having been part of the gaming's golden years.

Snookies121377d ago

Same here, those were the absolute best times to be a gamer.

WeAreLegion1377d ago

Wouldn't now be the best time to be a gamer, seeing as you can just play all of that stuff again, anyway? Plus, you can play all the new stuff, as well. I'm 25. By the time I was old enough to game, the NES had been out for awhile. That didn't stop my parents from buying me an Atari 2600. I loved it, even if it was "outdated".

SnakePlissken1377d ago

They were some of the best, that's for sure. 80s too though. Being a child of the 80s, there really was nothing like being in a darkened arcade back then.

Colecovision and NES! Waking into a store and seeing a big Kiosk gaming machine! 90s did produce so many crazy and unique consoles! Even all the handhelds.

80s and 90s were the best times for games in my book.
