    Seeing that mario and yoshi boxart made me think that it would be like Super Mario World. Not a tetris type thing.

    That spiderman one was horrible. PATHETIC.

    Funny stuff, my personal favorite was Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. I feel bad for the people back then...although come to think of it, they probably thought the game had fantastic graphics.

    Brings back memories. That Battle Chess was horrible. I remember waiting FOREVER for the Knight to overtake the Pawn and chop off its head.

    Lmao, those made me laugh.

    Thanks for humoring me during my boring gap between lessons, and distracting me from some really annoying banging noise, I have no idea where it's coming from.

    That is a very cool list. My personal favourite is number 9.

    I don't know if I could take that writer seriously, especially if he doesn't even know what chess piece is the king, lmao

    And I remember playing those old atari games, they were awesome, but you needed to use your imagination to make those blocks look like something.
