Never really had to blow into my Super Nintendo or N64 game cartridges. That was only a NES thing.

Not owning a memory card so having to play the first 5 levels of a game over and over. Or having a game (like football manager) where after a certain point in the game the save file would become to big for any memory card

How about losing all your progress when the power went out or the batteries died? It's definitely not as common today, and with consoles like the switch that keep running even when the power shorts, it's a lot easier to keep going. Also auto saves weren't a thing, so getting your progress back was all rage and tedious rework. Fun stuff!

Medpacks. Oh and Memory Cards. Oh and my favorite, remember how tvs used to be big? With backs to them with wires and what not and not just black glass screens? I showed my little brother an old fashion tv I still have from the 80''s that still fucking works and he questioned why was it so damn big compared to his stupid fucking flatscreen.....

Kids will never understand the joy of N64 or other consoles that didn't have loading screens! As soon as u qued a race of Mario Kart, boom! There it was u entered the race immediately and didn't have to watch a load screen with some stupid loading icon in the corner of ur screen and a dumb, overly obvious game tip on the bottom of ur screen that would say something like:" shoot enemies to lower their health" 😂

Remember when carts had additional joystick ports on top of them (like Micro Machines Megadrive). Also i thik i had the Sega Saturn Bomberman black multiplayer link. That could entertain all the kids on the whole street in one go.

lol, when I played two player Golden Eye with my little brother, I put a narrow table right in front of the TV, so that one player would see the screen above the table, and one had to play under the table. Lol it worked pretty good.

I really fucking hated it whenever I had home console and some dumbfuck walks in front of me to get past and walking through the outstretched cable that's clearly visible, instead of going around or under the cables, they just fucking walk right through it without thinking. Some people are just so dumb and do not think before they do things, and I always kept telling them _"GO AROUND ME INSTEAD OF OVER THE CABLES YOU SACK OF SHIT!"_ not in those exact words, but you get the idea.
Alkaris (2 months ago)
Split screen multiplayer was really fun, while you could do it on Goldeneye and Perfect Dark, it's harder to do it while playing games like Diddy Kong Racing, and Mario Kart 64 since you're too focused on what's going on your screen, unless of course you're playing Battle Mode, then yeah, you can play devilish schemes against the person playing next to you and mess them up. Some multiplayer maps in splitscreen can be really confusing though, for example in Goldeneye, the maps like Stacks and Complex, everything is confusing and easy to get lost. I use to set the mode to disable radar mode so you couldn't tell how close you were getting to the other player.

i completely understand fog and i understand talking about video game graphics with bits and i know about good disney games like ducktales and castle of illusion castle of illusion even got a really improved 3d remake and i knew about when mario and sonic were enemies and i know about rare and when they were really good i played banjo kazooie and dkc and i understand having to go to the arcade to get better graphics like in 1993 with daytona usa and blowing the cart was never the solution it was taking it out and putting it back in and also i have used command prompt before and i have played with splitscreen

Hahahahha the split screen. People would screen watch all the time to get the upper hand on your whereabouts. Many standoffs. And my goodness I miss Rareware. Perfect Dark, Jet Force Gemini, I still have Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie and Diddy Kong Racing. Dreamcast was ahead of its time with online capabilities, but everyone everywhere still had dial-up.

I never used cardboard, we just called eachother screen peakers.
Iain Ballas (3 months ago)
You should do one on handheld devices, including "Streetlighting", when you were in the back of a car during a long drive with your GameBoy or whatnot, which in those days did NOT have a backlit screen, so you would try to plot your pokemon attacks in the half a second of light you got from the streetlights... or if you were lucky, the car behind you would have its headlights on.

Adam Epp (3 months ago)
I was around during the N64 days and I don't understand using cardboard to block out parts of the screen. Who the hell actually did that? Sure, it doesn't make sense now, but it wouldn't have made sense back then, either. Something like passwords or no saving would be a lot more relatable.

Level codes. Zero real progess meaning a single fucking damn unless you left your console on for three to six weeks (FUCK YOU EMPIRE STRIKES BACK!) because you're stacked and don't want to lose your score, which was the equivalent of trophies in my day.

Not getting butthurt about the fact that you can get a "Game Over", meaning you have to restart the entire game.

ugggh I remember a game Disney made a really long time ago.. it was one of the few for Donald Duck but I don't remember what it was called, I don't think it was Quack Shot but it might have been.. I was a very aggressive little girl though, I remember that much x'D Whatever game it was it used to piss me off horribly because of how often I died in it x'D
dannytheman1313 (3 months ago)
two rules when playing multiplayer back in the day, if you picked rainbow road everyone was allowed to be pissed at you for wasting an hour, and if you picked odd job everyone was allowed to punch you. Hard.

I want to become a game dev and publisher hype it up so much, but have it only available on multiple cd or even better... a floppy disk and only available at "brick and mortar" stores. Everything would be strictly offline. No in-game shops or micro-transactions. Honest to god actual cheat codes and no auto saves.

The thing with the bit naming was ditched because it didn't made any sense anymore. The Playstation 2, Xbox, Dreamcast and even the Game Cube were all 32 bit consoles, but still were sometimes called the 128 bit generation. The name scheme was taken from the architecture of the used processor. Like i said the generation after the 32/64 bit generation was a pure 32 bit generation, and the after that was mixed again (Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 with 64 bit processors, Wii and Wii U still with 32 bit processors). The actual generation has only 64 bit cpus.

Idiots!! "blowing into" a cartridge wasnt the thing that caused it to work.. It wasnt the wind from the players breath that did ther trick.. it was the condensation from your breath that collected onto the contacts thus causing it to make better contact and therefore remedy the issue... Same as breathing on a mirror. If anyone still has one of the old cartridge consoles trust me and try it.. u will find that it actually works. softly "huff" into the cartridge as if you were trying to fog up a mirror then place the cartridge back into the console... It isnt because its dusty people.. its dirty and worn metal contacts. Your moist breath will serve as a temporary fix... your welcome. Your lord and savior, Mike MAson

Blowing does not help. Taking the game in and out rubs the contacts together and can remove buildup. I use rubbing alcohol and a q-tip on my old cartridges. Works every time. 007 Golden eye + four player + thirteen inch black and white TV = Nightmare.

Not everything you said was entirely accurate, I remember the games before the computers, Atari, intelevision and having to go to the arcade in order to play a video game as in house consoles was not common as they just came out. I also remember the computer games for Windows 3.1 with the 5 X 7 floppies and in order to play you would have to spend a good 15 minutes typing computer code in to load the game, and coming from that Era I was amazed about the graphics for sega Saturn which was the most comparable to the arcade systems and you said that it was either sega people or Nintendo people and that is not true, several of us had both the Sega and the Nintendo as there were games that were only for one and not the other so in order to have that we had to have both. Now there were games that was made for both like Mortal Kombat and I can't lie, I preferred sega but that was the original console it was made for and it had blood which was bloody awesome. Regardless I was a kid in the candy store when it came to the introduction of Nintendo came out in the late 80's and to this day my favorite game of all time is Super Mario Bros 3. Those are my thoughts however, awesome video and thanks for making it. 😊

-Having to look at the back of the game box was the only way to see what the gameplay looked like, which meant having the attendant at Wal Mart unlock the glass case -Figuring out GameGenie made you look like a genius -Having to "unlock" blood on the first Mortal Kombat game -Being a die hard Sega Genesis fan and trying not to be jealous of SNES graphics -Deciding whether or not to ask your parents for an Atari Jaguar, and being thankful you didn't
