I've put together the great games that I grew up playing during the 90s.As the years go by you can see the improvement on graphics and gameplay which was brilliant and more enjoyable as I got older.I lived through the magadrive era and was lucky enough to get the best games released from the console and enjoyed plugging away on some of the most addictive games ever made.I also watched games master which was a classic show presented by Dominik Diamond and the puzzler of them all Patrick Moore not shor if any of you guys and gals ever watched it but it was a really cool show.So here is the list hope you enjoy looking through.
To start with is a classic, strider a hero with daggers that can help you climb walls and his athletic skill was really cool jumping through the levels.There was some real interesting villains in this game with a robotic t-rex and a huge ape.It was a quite strange game set in the future but over all it wasn't bad.
This was a very clever game,or shall I say you had to be clever to get through the levels without letting your useless lemmings die.The music for me is the most memorable bit in it.It was very humorous and went well with the type game lemmings was.The levels were extremely hard as you went on they were very thought out on how you had to save the little gits.Over all Lemming was a very entertaining game with lots of fun.
This is one of the first games I ever played, it was very fun and very hard in places.You play Mickey Mouse that can only jump on his enemies that were little trees and clowns,you name it right to the very end to defeat the evil queen and save minni mouse.It was very good back in the day and kids today would love it.
The action star himself James Pond is robocod ready to take down some toys.This games is very fun to play and its out on the DS. I think kids today like as well showing that some games never get old.Its another game I never managed to complete but it didn't really matter though but was also another addictive game.
This game needs no introduction it was just a full on blood shed game especially if you could do the fatalities.There's loads of cool characters to choose from,I think the first game is the best one because it really showed how fight games could be really brutal as well as being fun.
For me street fighter was so amazing for its great characters and fantastic moves which they performed on each other, with some groovy music to fight to. I loved the arenas which you battled on. There was always repeating movement from people and animals in the background which was really bad now looking back but at the time playing it looked quite cool but then it again it was only 32-bit.
Every body remembers this game,I don't think it was very hard to complete but it had some great visuals and cool beast that you could change into I think every bodies fav was the wolf.Its an ancient game and a classic,I know that they made a remake but to be honest I'm not interested in them because they don't have the same feel to it and magic that made it a success.So my advice is stick to original!
This game reminded me of manga films and had a real Japanese feel to it.I loved playing this game as akid I thought it was really cool playing to heavy doods with big guns tearing through apocalyptic worlds to conquer gods.The action in it was quite relentless and you had breathing spaces when you entered a shop to get upgrades on your weapons and buy armour to survive the levels.A game for its time so I'm not shor if people would appreciate it any more but for me it was aclassic game for the early 90's.
I cant really talk about this game to much because I didn't even complete the first level.All I can say is that the graphics really attracted me to play it.It was visually very eye catching for its time but the gameplay for me was a bit stiff and hard to control but I think if they made it today I think it would do well.The intro was really cool when you see the character escape with a stolen disc it was quite an impressive footage for its time.
Earth worm Jim was just amazing,I was always into super heroes like any other kid but this hero was different.He was a worm that managed to get special suite and a little red gun it was aimed mainly for kids.It could of been a Disney type of game because it was very colourful and had some funny humour in it.Over all it was a git to complete but an amazing game.
I think this is the best Spiderman game ever made it has great music that suites its dark feel and levels.There's loads of the comic book villains that show up which is great.You get the chance to take photos,have a look at them at end of the level and get cash to charge your web cartiges up.I just feel it that stays closer to the comics and his great spidery ability even if its quite dated.A very fun game and can be really tricky in places.
This game is defiantly fun to play.I've always liked both characters but when you get to use Robocop in this it is really realistic with his trademark movement.Although you only get to see the terminator character once its still really entertaining all the way through.The main villains such as ED 209 and Kane characters were a great choice to be put in and gave it more of a movie feel.
I don't know why but when I was a kid I would always try and find this game in the arcades I just think its perfect for that.I never really got that far but I found it was really fun to play but mainly it was very addictive. When I would just about give up on it I would carry on, or go back to it again loads.Its quite good but its defiantly a game made for its time, very retro.
Shonibi is defiantly a favourite growing up I just think he is a really cool character to play mainly because he's a ninja.He can perform some wicked specials to attack his opponents.I never managed to complete the game I always wanted to what the main villain was like but I do remember the boss that looked like Spiderman I thought was quite a hard boss to kill not shor if any one else could remember him.
