1. Nintendo Entertainment System
So what kid that owned these didn't spend a majority of their time a) detangling the controller wires and b) shoving their face up to it to blow air as hard as they could into the disk slot.
2. Super Mario Bros. 3
The first game my mother ever brought home to me. The mother-fucker was shrink-wrapped. A by-gone era, so long sweet sweet childhood. The store actually had a heavy duty shrink wrap machine that smelled really funky.
How do you play this game!? I know how to watch the movie. I remember pestering the VCR repair guy (probably a meth-head) into helping me decipher this weird monstrosity. It still remains a mystery.
4. Super Nintendo Entertainment System
I didn't own one of these for a long time but the store would "rent" systems out to people and there was 1 Genesis. So after school I would hook this baby up if no one had taken it out. I'd be in the middle of Captain America and the Avengers and someone would want to rent it and well...
6. Cool Spot
really loopy animation similar to Rayman because the Spot barely had limbs...then again. What the heck IS a Cool Spot? I guess when you drink you're tasty fizzy beverage and you say, "That really hit the spot." You're talking about a little red poker chip with black shades on.
7. Sonic the Hedgehog 2
My little brother and I would carry our Sega Genesis when we would travel to stay with family. We'd spend hours running around the "3-D" stages and trying to beat this damn game. Family is overrated.
8. Streets of Rage 2
The perfect game for my brother and I to play on the floor in front of the TV. I think I was usually the blonde dude and he played as the skater.
