'90s Gaming as a '90s Kid

The '90s brought about a whole new era in video games. From the jump to 3D to the rise of couch multiplayer, it was a truly remarkable decade, especially if you were growing up right in the middle of it.

Those were the days when I just played games. Before I got wrapped up in all the politics and bickering. Even the playground(well...lunch table since I was in high school by then) were so much more fun versions of the console wars, because we'd bicker, act all superior, then go to each other's houses and play on the hated console and just have fun.

Thinking back, while I was on the playstation day one it released in Japan(import w/ Toshinden), I was actually mad at Sony because I was such a huge PC-Engine fan, and NEC decided to abandon it and not bring the PC-FX to the west. Funny the things I thought back then. Wonder what I'll think in another 25 years.

I grew up with the N64 with DK 64, Aerogauge, Pokemon Stadium 2, and Superman 64(Yes, superman. I actually thought this game was good as a kid. What was I smoking?) and Smash bros. I regret not getting a ps1 and it's plethora of jrpg's.

DarkOcelet707d ago

Well, when we were kids. Most games were amazing. Even the $hitty ones.

Shnazzyone707d ago

aerogague... shudder. I got that thinking it was n64's wipeout. How wrong i was.

ApolloTheBoss707d ago

Lol well it was alright in my book.

jc12707d ago

God did I have a blast with San Francisco Rush 64, Waverace 64, Mario Kart 64, Goldeneye etc...

Paytaa707d ago

Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Mortal Kombat, Hydro Thunder, Nights Into Dreams, Slave Zero, Crazy Taxi, Sonic Adventure, and Goldeneye 64 were the standout titles of the 90's for me.

Gaming back then was so different and I would kill to relive playing all those games for the first time again.
