Today is the national video game day and you know how we just love to talk about our childhood and bring in themes of nostalgia. So, how can we let this one go?
All of us have different childhood memories, adventures, and delightful pastimes that we treasure for the rest of our lives. However, a few aspects from people's childhoods in the 1980s and 1990s still hold true today. The world of gaming today would be very different without all the game developers who have given us their finest innovations.
Here are a few titles that will transport you back in time to the good ol' days when playing video games consumed the majority of your free time.
Pokémon Stadium (1998)
The greatest joy was experienced in the mini-games, even though Stadium Mode was fantastic! And you could import your own Pokémon from a Game Boy cartridge!
"Dig! Dig! Dig!" was everyone’s favourite, at least until the N64 chose to freeze when you were winning.
The Sims (2000)
Okay, let's be clear about this: at some point, we've all burned or starved our Sims to death. Apart from that, it was just so much fun to start a family and live the ideal life—with a few cheat codes, that is.
Super Mario 64 (1997)
Playing Super Mario 64 felt completely different because it was one of the first Super Mario games to utilise 3D visuals. Even though it took some getting used to, the changing camera angles made exploring the surroundings and castle grounds even more realistic.
Diablo II (2000)
Numerous factors contributed to Diablo II's incredible quality. Everything was created to capture your interest, whether it was the plot, the character development, or even the menacing music. Additionally, the PVP and multiplayer components significantly enhanced the experience of playing with friends.
Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos (2002)
Playing Warcraft III was a massive experience thanks to the grand battles, compelling campaigns, and occasional theatrical cutscenes. Additionally, things become slightly more intriguing if you were able to obtain a manual or any cheat codes.
