Diary of a Fangirl: 90s Video Games

It's getting close to that time of year where gifts appear under trees, and I've pondered carefully one of the things that I'd like, but will likely never happen.

I'd love for video game companies to make new consoles of the original Super Nintendo and Sega that would have compatible adapters to today's televisions.  I'd totally by that man.  Super Mario, Mario 3, Sonic, Street Fighter, Mortal Combat..

When it comes to video games, I don't care about the best graphics and what looks 3D or not--I care about what's fun.

And not just playing the games themselves, but holding those familiar remotes, hearing those jaunty tunes, blowing on the cartridges to make them work...


Sigh, childhood.

Note: Apparently, Nintendo was founded in 1889.  How about that?


  1. I use to be a beast on Mortal Combat. Kinda scary. Loved that game. You know I ran to the theaters when the film came out. "MORTAL COMBAT!"

  2. Mortal Combat is the shit :P I enjoyed the first film, but remember little about the second.

    Huh. Wonder if they'll do a reboot of those in a few years?
