I am unsure which site it'd be, but heard from an acquaintance that apparently a lot of old Nintento (8 bits) and Super Nintendo (16 bits) are online now. I don't know what URL that'd be though, but if it's even remotely true, I'd browse there ASAP.

I am a child of the late eighties and nineties (born in 1981 so childhood and puberty in late 80s and 90s) and all stuff from that era, even the guilty pleasures, make me nostalgic: Eurodance (I don't think stuff like 2 Brothers On The 4th Floor, Cappella, Dr Alban, Haddaway, Whigfield, etc would be "good music" really, but the nostalgia element makes me enjoy it whenever I hear it on the radio) , images of the 90s football/soccer games that occasionally get repeated on TV, ... and yes, video games!

As a kid and teenager, I spent hours and hours every week on Nintendo, Game Boy and Super Nintendo. I remember how PacMan and Tetris were still considered "high tech" when it comes to quality of images... My biggest addictions were all Super Mario Bros. games: Super Mario Bros 1 + 2 + 3 (all on Nintendo), Super Mario World + Super Mario Kart (both on Super Nintendo)... Super Mario was my priority, the memories make me nostalgic about childhood again Other games I remember well: Street Fighter II, Lemmings, MegaMan, ...

Then there were the early games for PC (which back then was Windows 3.1 ): "Cats", "Minefield", "Tetris", "PacMan", different card games, a few very early tennis and soccer games, Sim City, a racing game which included the option to build your own race track and then race against a friend or against the computer, ...

I'm getting melancholic here Would be awesome to play those games again, even if only a minority of them would be online!

I had a huge trip down memory lane when in one of the pubs I frequent, I noticed a new videogame console. Man, the memories...

They had Street Fighter II (it was like +20 years ago I last played it ; this version allowed to use Balrog, Vega, Sagat and M.Bison, and had added characters not existing in the SNES version such as Dee Jay, Cammy, ...)

They had Mortal Kombat (never liked that one that much, but simply because of nostalgia I enjoyed it)

They had PacMan (that game never ever gets old )

They even had a football (soccer I mean) game from the early 90s with graphics as if it were really still 1990. Also, you could select to play with team USSR or West Germany, countries and national soccer teams not even in existance anymore (well, the unified Germany team is in fact considered to be the legal continuation of West Germany according to the international soccer federation FIFA).

They had some platform games too, although no Super Mario but they did have Donkey Kong and I think I recognised Sonic the Hedgehog...



Oh how time flies. This was a massive saudade to play those games again I used to play as a child and early teenager Such a pity Super Mario Kart wasn't amongst the options (I adore that one!) and pity that the joystick and buttons on a gaming machine are totally different from the ones on the NES and SNES. That means you have to insert multiple coins just to get used to which buttons to press and play for longer than 3 minutes before being "game over".

But still, this was awesome! Nostalgia to full extent!

Makes me wonder: which were the very oldest video games?

I'd guess Pacman and Tetris will be on the list, and it is awesome they're still being played today.
Weren't there some car racing games and pingpong games too that even predated the first Sega and Nintendo consoles?

I dont like these NEW multigame cabinets because its all digital.... The games dont sound as good and dont look as good!! (Mostly the sound is not as good)

If im gonna play an early 80s arcade game ON THE CABINET ITSELF I would prefer the originals
