23 Video Games We All Wasted Time On As Kids
1. Super Mario Bros
What a banger, this was. Honestly? This game never - we repeat, NEVER - gets old. Long live Mario!
Whether it was The Ocarina of Time or the original stuff, this game was, and still is, one of your best experiences in life.
3. The Sims
Where your dreams met (virtual) reality.
Remember a time when your phone didn't have the internet? When your brick-like Nokia 3310 was used for calling, texting, and playing Snake only? Yeah, let’s not go back to those days. Can we keep Snake though?
5. Need for Speed
We were driving long before we got our provisional licences.
6. Prince of Persia
Technically, it was nothing complicated or fancy - you just ran, jumped, and used a sword from time to time. But you know what? It was magnificent.
7. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4
Wow, dude. What a great 360* ollie! Right onnnn.
Was he a dog? A monkey? An alien? Who knows. He was very good at grabbing things, though.
Fuck the police.
This was the first experiment in a series of many to verify if your friendship with Bob was strong enough to stand the test of time and mutual mild-roasting.
11. RollerCoaster Tycoon
It was just so fun to watch all those amusement park goers die in agony… Wait, what?
12. Grim Fandango
It was grim, alright. Also, it arguably had the best graphics ever at the time.
Ah, what a classic. It never gets old. Nom nom.
14. Duck Hunt
For some reason we were really into hunting as young adults. We blame Nintendo.
15. Sonic the Hedgehog
It got to the point when Sonic was going so fast, we had no idea what the fuck was going on. We still played it tho, we still played it.
16. Final Fantasy VII
Have you heard they’re making a remake? HAVE YOU HEARD?
17. Age of Empires
Oh boy, isn't it fun playing God?
18. SimCity 4
Oh boy, isn't it fun playing God (Part 2)?
When you think about it, this should have been the most boring game ever. But it’s not. How did that happen?
20. Crash Bandicoot
Destroying all those boxes and blowing things up with TNT helped a lot with our anger management issues as kids tbh.
21. Spyro the Dragon
It was one of those games that taught us early on that gender is a social construct.
22. Pokémon Red & Blue
All hail Pokémon. Thank God for Pokémon.
23. Disney Aladdin
What was supposed to be a seasonal, one-off Disney game turned out to be half of our childhoods.
