Were you a 90’s gamer?

1 min read


I started gaming in the early eighties – but its the games from the nineties that really shaped me as a gamer. Late NES games (Super Mario Bros 3 <3), SNES and Genesis/Megadrive games made me.

If you played a ton of games in the 90’s, here’s a heart dose of magical nostalgia.

I’d like to (mistakenly) think that I have an encyclopaedic knowledge of games from the era – but this music quiz game really has proven me wrong. In my defence, I’ve never really noticed video game music much beyond the really classic, stick-in-your-head tunes – like Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario and the like.

I got just a little over a third of them without using the hints. How many can you get?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
