Each one of us have our own childhood stories, experiences and ways of having fun which we cherish throughout our lives.
However, there are still few things which are common in the childhood days of the people born in 80s and 90s. Here are the few games which will put you on the ‘rewind’ track and take you to the good old days when games simply ate-up most of your time.
A salute to all the game developers who blessed us with their greatest innovations without which the world of games would have been quite different today.

1. CLASSIC HAND-HELD WATER GAME
The all-time favorite hand-held game of our time. Get the colored rings into the rods with hands, device-shaking, bubbles and pure willpower. This was the ultimate test of luck, skill and patience.
2. BRICK GAME (First Gaming Console)
Our first graphical calculator with built-in games that made us spending a lot of time playing Brick Game, Snake, Arkanoid, Racing and Frogger . The geometrical blocks explained a lot of complex things in the simplest ways.
It was fun controlling the little yellow mouth shaped greedy gut who used to gulp dots & fruits whilst avoiding the scary ghosts. Indeed, Pacman is still existing in our mobiles & tablets says it all!
4. POLE POSITION
The revolutionary F1 resembling racing game created benchmarks in the gaming industry. It also introduced the ‘rear view’ style of racing games – where you see the car on the track – still used in games to this day, though the sound effect sounded like a scratching spoons on the plate. The coin operated arcades placed at the local shops came complete with a steering wheel and gear stick.
5. ROAD RASH
Everyones’ favourite combat motorcycle racing game in which we have to participate in violent and illegal street racing. We enjoyed the fun of speeding our bikes,evading cops and beating opponents to win the race.
6. WOLFENSTEIN 3D
The classic shooter Wolfenstein 3D was released for DOS on May 5, 1992 almost twenty-two years ago. In this, player assumes the role of a World War II Allied spy, William “B.J.” Blazkowicz, attempting to escape from the Nazi German prison of Castle Wolfenstein. It is widely regarded as having helped popularize the genre of run-and-gun on the PC.
7. NEED For SPEED III: HOT PURSUIT (1998)
We all have experienced the joy of racing using exotic sports car when such cars were the rarest phenomenon on the city streets. Need for Speed for the first time offered the two-player split-screen mode, allowing two players to race using the same computer.
8. THE SUPER MARIO
The most epic game on the video game platform created by Nintendo featuring the shortest and chubbiest mustached man named ‘Mario’. We all have been a big fan of this character from mushroom kingdom repeatedly on missions to rescue the kidnapped Princess Peach.
We all are fond of the memories about those pride moments after completing stages of this epic video game ‘Contra’ on our Nintendo. Controlling two armed military commandos on a mission to neutralize a terrorist group and save the planet. 10 different stages and few upgrades such as weapon flying capsules empowering player with different guns while S-Power was the all time favorite. Still remember playing two player’s with a friend and quarreling for the consumption for powers!
10. ROAD FIGHTER
One of the most favorite car racing games where the goal is to reach the finish line in limited time without hitting other cars or running out of fuel. Do you remember the superman resembling mascot flying by the side of the road if we progress to a certain point in the level without crashing?
