Today, we’re gonna take a trip down memory lane. So pack a toothbrush and your…memory deodorant, I guess.
The cool thing about memory lane is it’s a road that goes for as long as you want it to. You can just keep driving down that and never arrive anywhere, enjoying the pleasingly familiar scenery along the way.
And to help us on our journey, we’re enlisting the virtual travel agents of Twitter. Take it away, tweets. Let’s ride.
10. It’s in the game
In my experience these were the ultimate tease, because you either didn’t have enough time to play them, or they were out of order.

9. In living color
The most popular gaming handheld of all time didn’t have a backlit screen.
I have no idea how we survived this.

You can just hear the THUNK right through your screen, can’t you?

5. Make it a Blockbuster night
In the era of endless streaming options, it’s really hard to explain why this was so exciting.

3. Mouse in the house
Before lasers, mice had balls.
And it was up to us to clean them.
