Dust off your old vintage games and video game consoles. This is not another article that lists all the things that “only ‘90s Kids will understand,” but if you were a child in the ‘90s, we bet you’d love to get your hands on some of these vintage games. On September 15, 200 lots of vintage video games from Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Game Boy, N64, and more will be sold in an online only auction.
Long before the days of Pokémon Go, we all lived for these original Nintendo games. Here’s the lots that are bringing us serious nostalgia:
N64 Golden Eye 007 –Playing it years later, you realize how far technology has come, but at the time, this game was a pioneer for single and multiplayer shooting and stealth elements. With the choice of several different weapons, the game put you in the shoes of James Bond as he navigated the various locations of the film GoldenEye.
N64 Diddy Kong Racing –Diddy Kong Racing was released in 1997 and centered around Diddy Kong’s quest to defeat Wizpig through winning races by car, hovercraft, and airplane. Although attempts were made to create a sequel, the game’s only successful release was for the N64. Ask any video gamer who grew up in the ‘90s, and they likely have strong feelings about Mario Kart vs. Diddy Kong Racing.
NES Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3 – These games take the cake as the most classic games of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. The wildly popular Super Mario Bros. series has been re-imagined and developed on almost every subsequent video game console. If you have an NES, and don’t have a copy of these titles, be sure to pick one up.
N64 Pokémon Snap – This quirky cult classic was based around a plot line where Professor Oak required photos of Pokémon in their natural habitat for his research. It was released in 1999 in North America, and was a successful title for HAL Laboratory, the creators of other N64 hits like Super Smash Bros. and Kirby 64. Often described as addictive, this game is one to pick up for your N64 and try for yourself.
N64 Pokémon Stadium – Released in North America in 2000, this strategy game centered around fighting your Pokémon through gym battles or against your friends. After completing each of the cups, you had the chance to battle Mewtwo to unlock a higher difficulty level. One of the coolest parts about the game was the ability to transfer Pokémon from the Red, Blue, Yellow games into Pokémon Stadium. But I think we can all agree; everyone’s favorite part was the mini-games.
