Early millennials would agree that video games were easily the best thing about the 90’s. Summer holidays were all about morning bicycle rides and afternoons sessions with the Nintendo. Even in a time where we were decades away from a high-end game like Assassin’s Creed or No Man’s Sky, we’ve played these Nintendo games like our lives depended on it.

Maybe that’s why we still have some serious emotions for the simplest games we’ve played back then. On the occasion of Nintendo day, here are the best Nintendo games from that era that can bring up some serious nostalgia.

1
Super Mario Bros.

Do you remember that pesky giggling dog every time you missed shooting those ducks? It easily brought out the most competitive side in us.

A cross between Super Mario and Tetris, the fondest memory of this game was that trippy sound that played throughout.

One of the very few Disney cartoons that made it as a video game, Chip and Dale sure was one helluva game.
