What game era are you from?


One of Dannys funny posts got me remembering the good old days when I was young(er).

So, that got me thinking. We probably all have some game memories from different stages of our lives.

I remember the really big kids haven the Commdore 64 games. We were to young to get such devices. But I do remember when the Atari TV games arrived in my home. That was awesome. The brilliant tennis game of just to lines as players and a dot moving on the screen. The Asteroids and Pacman.

Then the first Game & Watch devices were high priority on the wishing lists. Donkey Kong and a Mickey Mouse game where he should catch eggs.

Then the tetris era came and somewhere after I lost track of game development. I watched Super Mario from a distance and tried to play and understand that a few times. But I remember the sounds! All of them.

So I revealed my age in some way here. What game era are you from? Do you remember the sounds or the characters from your favorite game?

One of Thumbups posts inspired me to find this video in combination with the game talking.

This is NOT a good way to drive! But it is a great song from the Swedish band The Cardigans 🙂

And for you who don’t hear the music, here’s a lyric version, but then you miss the car driving action. See both videos if you want to know what the song’s about.

  1. I had a Commodore Vic 20. Game consoles I had were Puck Monster (a poor man’s Pac Man) and Astro Wars. Still got them both in the loft. The board games that were popular when I was a kid are still for sale-Mouse Trap, Ker Plunk, Connect Four, Operation, Buckeroo etc etc. Seventies and eighties must have been the Golden Age for board games.

  2. I’ve only played foosball. I build computers but I’ve never had any interest in video games, or any kind of games. This is something I’ve never even thought about before. I don’t even know any card games. Now I have something to think about for a while…

    • I’m glad the post made you think 🙂
      I like games, but I get bored really fast and I don’t always understand the importance of winning. So I’m not good at competitions!

  3. I remember Atari, Activision, and Commodore 64 games…but I’m a big kid, so I played Nintendo up through the Colour Game Boy with my son, LOL – we kicked butt at Tetris and conquered Super Mario I, II, and III quite handily! I took “computer science” in junior high (grades 7 & 8) and have had a computer in the home from the age of 12 until the present…and I still play computer games! I prefer MMORPGs, but I do like a few of the 1st-person shoot-em-ups…and, my claim to fame is that my face is actually in a fairly popular PC / Mac game!

  4. Same era, same-ish age I’m guessing. Atari was fantastic at the time. I remember one called Intellevision shortly after Atari as well. My kids are blown away by the lowly games I was forced to endure as a kid. Didn’t even have cable until I was 10. Gasp!!! 😃
