That electric seaweed is calling my name!

Longie_long889d ago

The sound when you touch it... I hear it in my dreams.

ZeekQuattro888d ago

I remember one of the levels in Retro City Rampage was paying homage to those seaweed segments. Not quite as hard but man did it bring back bad memories of my many deaths on that level. Never did beat that game without the Game Genie. Same with Battletoads. lol

The top-down view theme music was stuck in my head all day as a kid.

I'm not sure if I ever completed a no-damage seaweed run.

Double Dragon 2 is one of the best!! Several good games on this list! Shadowgate, P.O.W., and Klax. That is actually a super fun puzzle game! TMNT, I think every time after the seaweed, I only had like 1 Turtle left. lol

Shadowgate was how I got so familiar with Nintendo's helpline lol. But man did I love that game.

And wow I forgot all about P.O.W. until you mentioned it. Man being a kid with a NES really was the good ol days.

Best birthday ever: 15 and I got a Super Nintendo with Super Mario World, Pilot Wings and Street Fighter. (Spoiled rotten) And I saw Basic Instinct at the theater!


25 Best Video Game Consoles of All Time

Since 1972, video games in the home have been changing pop culture as we know it, but what's the best video game console of all time?

Ok 25 are too many but then again so many consoles have been released throughout the years.

If I had to choose 5, I would pick N64, PS1, Switch, Dreamcast and Gamecube (based on the time I spent playing with friends on consoles).

For home consoles (not handhelds) I have created a mini interactive encyclopedia here as a hobby


Video games have a fascinating history

Tapani155d ago (Edited 155d ago )

I'd choose PS1 as my first choice due to the amount of RPGs that were groundbreaking and still hold up well. PS2, SNES, PS4, NES and Switch are the next entries.

I own a PS5, but have not bought a single PS5 game on it, bought it to play my PS4 catalogue with it, but unfortunately the patches are far and in between. At least the sound quality is better than on the PS4 and PS4P, menus and loading faster, and it is silent and the controller is good.

Commodore Amiga CD32 was an amazing piece of kit with the jump from floppy to compact disc it were like witchcraft I'll tell ya

SyntheticForm156d ago

The PS1 was probably the most exciting for me.

SNES, Sega CD, and everything else in the 90's were also very exciting. Just an exciting decade all around with some absolutely fantastic gaming.

ChasterMies156d ago

Wow, can’t believe they whittled this list down to only 25. I was trying to make a list of the best U.S. states and could only whittle it down to 50.

anast155d ago (Edited 155d ago )

PS1-5 and the NES are the top 6 consoles. Since Nintendo hasn't done anything different since the NES, the NES is the one to beat.

The top 2 are PS1 and PS4.
