If You Played Video Games In The 90s, You Remember Doing At Least 8 Out Of These 10 Things

90s were, undoubtedly, one of the best eras to live in. When you will tell your kids about how you got your first phone in the 10th grade, they will laugh. When you will tell that 90’s songs are still your favorite, they will tell you to put on some Justin Bieber.

But for every kid who lived in the 90s, video games are a huge part of our childhood.

Gamers of today will never know the struggle of being a 90s gamer. Growing up during the golden age of video games had its downfalls every now and then, but we can only sit back and laugh at them today. Here are a few of those experiences:

1. Your sibling would always steal a life on Contra because they suck at the game and only want to ruin your life.


2. Road Rash blew your minds as a kid.


3. The first heart-break you ever faced was when you realised that 9999999999 games in one cassette was a lie designed to make kids buy that game.

4. You never completed Mario as a kid but you’ve always wanted to get that console back to do it.

5. Blowing on a cartridge/cassette solved all problems.

6. Most of us remember ‘HESOYAM’. Remember, back in the day, how excited we were to get our hands on a thick stack of cheats and walk-throughs.

7. We spent almost all our pocket money on learning every move that Yoshimitsu could do.

8. Only the worst people picked Eddy in Tekken 3. You guys suck.

9. We couldn’t install a game because one of the multiple discs either didn’t work, or was misplaced.

These games came with four discs in them rather than one in order to fit in all the cinematics. Now, the issue is that disc four would only be needed when you finally got the part in the game. You now get to the last disc screen and realize that it has gone missing and you are unable to continue playing.

10. You tried shooting this Dog from Duck Hunt.
