Games I Played as a Kid

Rachel Mii Double JumpHi guys, it’s Rachel.

Now that Kris and I have started this blog, I’ve been looking through all the video games I have. Some games I forgot I had.

I went through some really old games and found myself saying, “Oh, I remember that one!” So here are some games I played as a kid.

super nintendo video games

I grew up with a Super Nintendo as my home console. I often watched my sister play video games all the time until I became old enough to attempt them myself.

There were games we played together all the time and then there were other games that I played by myself.

The Lion King

Who doesn’t love The Lion King? I remember playing this game a lot and not getting very far in it. I always died way too early. I mostly enjoyed watching Kris play the game.

Tiny Toons

This was a great game. I never understood it, but I remember playing it a lot with Kris. She was always better at it, but I did enjoy the mini games.

Streetfighter

I absolutely loved this game when I was little. No one would ever play it with me though. It wasn’t Kris’s thing so I often played alone at my grandparents’ house because they owned a copy of the game… for some reason.

Goof Troop

This game was… not so good. Though I thoroughly enjoyed it when I was a kid. Again, Kris wasn’t very smitten with it, but I made her play with me a bunch of times. It was just better (and easier) to play with two people. One person played as Goofy, the other as Max. I often roped my dad into playing it with me whenever Kris wouldn’t. I remember being Max picking up barrels and throwing them at Goofy. Then my dad would get confused as to why he was hurt.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time

By far the best (and quickest) game ever. I mean, looking back on it now it’s not the greatest game, but it’s still one of the best. Kris and I are huge Ninja Turtles fans and we played this game a lot, though I don’t think we ever beat it. Either way, we had a lot of fun with it.

What are some games you loved to play as a kid?

  1. I never had a SNES but I did have the NES (I am 28 so I am probably older than both of you 😉 I played Super Mario Bros & SMB3 with my mum and we would leave the console running for weeks, if not months until we finished a particular game. I also had Paper boy, batman, Boat Duel and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The latter of which brought both frustration and great joy. Frustration. Because games back then weren’t exactly clear on what you had to do and Joy because watching my dad jolt the controlled pad up and swing it in the direction he wanted the character to jump. It was probably because of people like my father that we got motion controls for the Wii 😉 A lot of fun times to be had and now videogames are even better today!
