My good god, I've heard this too many times of late. Mention SNES even, and they have no idea what you are talking about. It is a botheration that kids these days know nothing of even modern history in relation to what they do EVERY SINGLE DAY.
;____; This makes me sad... and scared. lol Though, I didn't know what the Intellivision was so I guess I was one of those kids before. =(
Fortunately, our Nintendo still works 15% of the time, so my younger brothers have some classic Battle Toads and Duck Hunt experience.
To be fair, 1998 was 12 years ago.1985 was 25 years ago, though.
Battle Toads! Seriously great game!
When you're old, 12 years doesn't see like it was so long ago, does it?
This is even worse with people who say 'NES' or 'Genesis' in place of 'N64' and 'Playstation'.I was born in 1985 too guys and even I think these people are a bunch of fucking hipsters with nostalgia goggles welded to their faces.
Feh, if you didn't play it on an Arcade machine, a C64 or a BBC Micro you're a poser nostalgia wannabe.And yes, I have my cane here & I'll beat the fuck out of you with it pansy boy
Battle Toads: the true masochist's choice of side-scrolling beat-em ups.
I taught in a high school for a while, had some 14 year olds make a Warcraft reference, so I responded with a comment about murlocs being the best. "You play games?" "I was playing games before you were *born*."The 4 smartest students (read: "nerds") got a present before I finished teaching there - a CD each of old 386/486 era games and NES/Genesis roms..
At least NES and Genesis are actually vintage-ish. I mean sure, it's no Atari 2600 or Colecovision, but they qualify a lot more than the first true 3D-capable machines.
