I can still remember it like it was just yesterday: school was done for the week and I could finally go into chill mode and spend time with my siblings riding our bikes, making up dance routines, or playing video games. A good portion of our Saturdays and Sundays in elementary school, especially during the winter, were spent either in the basement attached to the Playstation or on the family desktop computer playing with one of our CD-Rom games (that were all kept in a giant zippered CD wallet, of course). We would pass the time playing popular favorites such as The Sims, Nancy Drew, and Spice World, and the only time we would break was to make Totino’s pizza rolls or to grab another pack of Gushers.
Before the days of binge watching Netflix series, baking copious amounts of banana bread, and gluing ourselves to our Nintendo Switches, there were the video games of yesteryear. Here are 8 of our favorites.
