5 Old School Gaming Systems You Can Still Buy
I will be showing my age with this post because I can remember and enjoyed playing on all 5 of the systems listed in the article from Online Tech Tips!
Nintendo GameBoy – All my kids had these! We had the covers with the lights so they could use them in the van without the overhead lights on.
Super Nintendo System – This one we had a splitter so more of the kids could play. However, the cords were short and everyone had to sit right in front of the TV.. which were smaller back then too!
Nintendo NES System – Kids had this one for years! I remember having to blow on the end of the game cartridge to get it to play.
Sega Genesis – Oh, this was the one the boys spent hours and hours on when a new game was released.
Atari 2600 – My older kids used this one for “homeschool” games back when they were little.
We can even add the Commodore 64 to the list of systems we had around. Although the Commodore 64 was more like a computer than a gaming system.
And you want to know a secret? We still have all of them except the Atari and Commodore! Maybe I should drag them out and see about setting them up for the grandchildren. I might be able to actually play a game on these. The xbox requires my three year old to get set up for granma to use!
I enjoyed the article on Online Tech Tips…It brought back tons of memories of hours of playing with my children.
Did you have one or more of the gaming systems when you were growing up? What OLD SCHOOL game was your favorite? My favorites were Dr. Mario, Bubble Bobble and Donkey Kong.
