In our childhood, we played lot of video games on our PC’s. Those PC’s however were not like what you are using now. Our PC’s back then had a Big Fat Monitor, A Towering or Desktop PC, Big speakers, A mouse with a ball inside. It is absurd in current time to even imagine to use PC with 16gb hard drive, 64mb RAM, YES I REPEAT!!! 64mb ram. We had those PC’s. Those Pentium I’s, Pentium II’s.
No doubt, we made some good memories playing video games in our childhood. Playing games in window 95, 98 in MS-DOS……NOSTALGIA!
I am arranging 5 best games we played in our childhood, In other words 5 best 90,s games. Before you proceed to list, This is my personal opinion, you may or may not agree bit it sure will be trip to memory-lane
1-NFS II SE
Need for Speed II SE better known as NFS II SE was the second installment of the famous Need for Speed Franchise. If you are not a 90,s kid then you may not have played it but you might be familiar with other games of the franchise. What NFS II SE gave us, no game in the franchise can. Yes I am talking about 2 players Split Screen mode. Who remember playing knockout with siblings and friends?Raise you hand if you do! Ummm you can lower you hand I guess. I can’t see them sigh! technology needs to improve more right?. No matter the graphics, the game-play was no doubt the best and ahead of its time. Choosing McLaren for speed and Ford Indigo for twists and turns in later maps! THIS GAME WAS GOLD.
Tell me below your favorite car from the game. And yes who remember those GO cheat codes?

2- DOOM II
As you may know, Doom is popular video game franchise. With over 6 releases, Doom franchise originally started in 1993 with the first Doom game. The game I am highlighting is the 2nd game of the franchise, Doom II: Hell on Earth. DOOM II was better then first release in my opinion. This game ran on MS-DOS platform. Yes it,s true. The game was the best FPS out there back then in my opinion. It was fun shooting Demons and Undeads as proceeding through levels. Who remember the bloody face of that playable guy every time he gets hurt? At minimum level of health the playable dude actually bled from eyes too. I wonder why modern FPS games don’t use that. That thing was cool. By the way the game is still available on steam! Click here to get it
Midtown Madness i a racing video game developed by Rockstar San Diego, The guys behind GTA and Bully. The game was released in 1999 and it followed open world racing mechanics, unlike majority of racing games that force player to race on a track. Midtown Madness was also a multiplayer game, Which were rare to see in 90,s. The game was a famous back in 90,s and I am sure most of you have played it. I believe we all have memories about playing the game with our friends, racing from checkpoints to checkpoints, Racing with a bus, Police car, or Truck……. Even now the game is played online in GameRanger.
4- Dangerous Dave 3
Dangerous Dave is a video game franchise. Mario was the inspiration behind the games. The franchise released over 4 Dangerous Dave games. I am focusing on the 3rd game pf the franchise, Dangerous Dave’s Risky Rescue. In this game protagonist fights enemies along the way to rescue his nephew from the evil Dr. Nemesis. Who remember those animation when Dave was killed? Again modern platform game don’t use those mechanics although it was pretty cool. No doubt DD3 was one of the best game our childhood
5- Jazz Jack Rabbit
Jazz Jack Rabbit is a platform game developed by Epic MegaGames in 1994. The Jazz Jack Rabbit franchise have other releases to but the first one was best than other’s in my opinion. That’s why I will be focusing it. It followed adventure of the rabbit chasing after a turtle to save his girl friend The game had sci-fi setting with player moving from planet to planet in each episode. It adopts the famous Hare vs Tortoise rivalry from fiction “The Tortoise and The Hare” by Aesop. According to Wikipedia, It was on of the first game to bring side scrolling platform style in the PC gaming.
So which one is you favorite 90’s game? tell me in the comments.
