1. The Oregon Trail
Ahh Oregon Trail… Feeling like a rich man when you buy 100 decks of cards, an axe and some pemmican only to lose them when you try and caulk the wagon and float.
Whatever you do, don’t name your characters after your family members unless you want your favorite cousin dying of snakebite or dysentery. Fair warning.
3. The Logical Journey of the Zoombinis
5. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego
So nostalgic it hurts. Positive yet painful neurons bounce around as you think of it. Oh where are you Carmen?
Back then I literally thought I was traveling the world AND had a cell phone.
7. Chex Quest
Oh I’m sorry… Did you think I was going to put DOOM on this list? Nah dude. Because young me got a sudden case of cereal aisle diarrhea when I saw this baby on the shelves.
Tearing open that cereal box so fast and finding out what? That this game is basically FREAKING DOOM!!! (with way more cereal than the original). At a time when I definitely was not allowed to play DOOM thats like 6 year old me breaking the Da Vinci Code.
10. Math Blaster
Sesame Street gave me that proper syntax while games like this made me semi-interested in long division. Thanks Mom and Dad!
11. JumpStart First Grade
Cooking brownies with a talking dog, only to have my young fingers fumble and mess up the recipe… “Oh no! The glop monster!!”
14. 3d Pinball
What was your high score? Because ten year old me was a pinball millionaire.
15. Sid Meier’s Civilization
Pimping out my throne room with palm leaves and a tiger rug.
You go straight for the nukes don’t you Gandhi? All i want is to trade wine for horses and saltpeter.
18. Age of Empires
Wololo Wolololo Wanana…. I’ve converted your catapult to Christianity.
20. Ecco The Dolphin
I don’t really understand what this game was about. I remember some jellyfish… I think.
22. Chip’s Challenge
24. Ski Free
Please note that Ski Free broke the nostalgia meter…
This is going surprisingly well… I’m avoiding these rocks and pine trees like a boss.
