If you were around in the 1980s and 1990s, you surely remember the arrival of home gaming. Along with these home gaming consoles, were of course our favorite arcade games. Arcade games that have shape our childhood. The excitement and the thrill did it all. Win or lose these games will surely make you want to play it more. Very happy memories, especially if the whole family would play video games together in the living room. The feelings that we have every time we play these classic arcade games were unexplainable. I mean who will hate these cute characters, funky graphics and groovy sound effects?
Now if you remember Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Galaga, Tetris, and of course, Super Mario Bros, we want to give you a high five! Nothing beats the classic games that we had back in the days.
Now let’s start with Donkey Kong. Who will forget this ape-like character throwing barrels while you’re trying to avoid other obstacles and fireballs to rescue Pauline. The Jumpman, as your character, will really do anything to rescue his girl. Truly, love wins!
And of course Pac-Man, which is one of the classics and icon of 1980s popular culture. Pac-man is one of the highest-grossing video games of all time. That is why it’s one of the most famous arcade games of all time.
And yes, Galaga! Wherein, you’re the hero that will save the earth from aliens. You will take control of the starfighter, firing on enemies swarming and firing bullets to crash your ship. You will encounter a boss Galaga at the end of each stage. By the way, Galaga has 256 levels!
Tetris was an immediate hit, earning ecstatic reviews and selling in healthy quantities. The game’s fame was spreading, but as Tetris’ name became ever more valuable, the tussle over who should own the rights to it would soon intensify.
Who will forget the Super Mario Bros.?? It’s one of the best arcade game ever made! But what’s so special about a decade-old game revolving around an Italian plumber trying to save a lost princess? It’s all about history. When Super Mario Bros. came out, the video game industry was a wreck. But Mario helped save it — and it wasn’t even in another castle.
And so, classic arcade games were part of our history. The classic arcade, with dozens of games lined up and people playing shoulder to shoulder, is an anomaly in this world. The retro gaming vibe is back with hip classic gaming consoles. So don’t forget to power up to save the Princess!
