A bit of video gaming nostalgia... that doesn't ask $10 for 8-bit graphics...

    Listing 1980's Video Game Commercials

    I can still remember the days when you could turn on your NES and get Tetrisized, or flip on the SNES and begin Playing with Power. fun times, sad we'll never see those days again, now everythings about graphics, or multifunction, and not so much on gameplay. I miss the days were all about points and high score.

    Super Ghouls and Ghosts is an evil, evil, game. Evil.

    I remember the old commercials, but as I was always behind the technology curve, they were always advertising games I couldn't play. Oh, those were the days...

    Back in the day I was all into Super Ghoul's and Ghosts because of the graphics.
    It's all relative.

    yeah, that game kicks ass. the genesis one I played through in a day...had to leave the system on while I took a break once I found out I had to go through it twice. the snes one was real hard too, and I have NEVER been able to beat the last boss.
