Ready for your daily trip down memory lane? So am I. Here are 13 gaming consoles from the distant past that you totally forgot about.
Prepare yourself for some extreme childhood nostalgia up ahead – especially if you were a budding video game enthusiast.
1. The holy grail
I spent most of my formative years on my Gamecube.
2. Responsibility 101
Truly, whether or not your Tamagotchi lived is a clear indicator of if you’re ready to be a parent.
3. The Intellivision!
Remember when your controllers had numbers on them? No… no you don’t. Nobody does. Because this thing came out in 1979!
4. RIP Sega Dreamcast
This short-lived console sure packed a lot of surprises.
5. The real O.G.
Phew, this thing is ancient. It’s crazy how much technology has developed over only a couple decades.
I mean, this basically looks like a giant air conditioner at this point.
6. Aw, memories
Imagine playing Legend of Zelda on this bad boy.
7. This really sent me back
What a beautiful spread. It could bring a tear to my eye.
8. Is that a microwave?
I kid, I kid – but that’s a pretty thick screen.
9. My kind of mood board
This imaging is so calming.
10. The low-budget route
Just some very light programming at play here.
11. Here’s another discount game
Water and plastic – can you get any simpler?
12. The alternative option
It’s too bad Atari had to split in the 80’s. They had some pretty stellar products. This portable Lynx console was definitely a dark horse.
13. Virtual Boy, Power Glove, Game Gear, and… ummm…
Did anybody actually own any of these? And WHAT IS THAT IN THE RIGHT HAND CORNER?!?!
Wow, that took me straight back to my childhood. If only we could go back to those simpler times – even for just a fleeting moment.
