For me, it would have to be Grand Theft Auto 3. Sure, there are GTA’s that have come out with better graphics, more cars, and weapons, but GTA 3 was a total game changer. Never before were you afforded that much freedom to fuck shit up! What other game at the time let you pick up a hooker, have sex with her, and then rob her to get your money back??? Countless hours spent on that game and not a single regret!
I’m still stuck in the 90’s. I don’t think I will ever get over it. The carefree days of playing video games, taking a break when the ice cream man rang his jingle and not having to worry about bills, insurance, rent, office politics, and the myriad of other bullshit that comes with being a grown up. The only comfort I can take is remembering the good ol’ days and the good ol’ days consisted of a lot of video game playing, specifically NES. Here’s a selection of 10 awesome NES games, the boss fights and the ending to help take you back to those carefree days.
A lot of people remember this game as being relatively easy, and it could be – assuming you cheated. The famous Konami code would give you 30 lives, but if you instead tried to play without it, you are given only three lives, and any random pixel coming at you could spell doom. With no regenerating life, no armor, and no cover, all you can do in this game is run and run and run.
