Happy Video Games Day everyone!!  Whether you’re a fan of Nintendo, PlayStation, X-Box, Sega, mobile gaming or even retro classics like Atari or the Commodore, today is the day to shut those curtains tight, stock up on snacks and game the day away!

In celebration I’m going to list the favourite gaming moments I’ve had throughout my life and would love to hear some of your own!

This is where it all started, my first ever video game on the NES!  A truly iconic game that has stood the test of time, I’ll never forget discovering the Mushroom Kingdom for the first time.  Mario is still going strong too, every one of his games is almost guaranteed to be an exciting play!

The very first Pokemon game on the Game Boy!  Everyone had their own favourite starter (mine was Squirtle) and who can forget catching their very first Pikachu!?  There were 151 to catch in this first game (did anyone manage to get a Mew?) which seems like a tiny amount compared to the 800+ there are now!

ROUND ONE, FIGHT! My first introduction to Street Fighter was with the second game on the SNES, with only eight characters to choose from it was easy to try them all out and find your favourite, Chun-Li FTW!

The very first Mario Kart!  One of my all time favourite series, from humble beginnings on the SNES we are now up to our eighth instalment with a deluxe re-release on the Nintendo Switch which I think is the best in the series.

“Kick! Punch! It’s all in the mind” I was obsessed with this quirky PlayStation game when it first came out and have fond memories of free-style rapping over every song (usually messing it all up!)

Being a huge fan of Japanese RPGs, Final Fantasy VII came along and blew me away!  A huge expansive story and world to explore that I probably sunk 80+ hours into and probably my favourite selection of characters from the Final Fantasy world.  A remake is due to hit the PS4 in the next year or so and I can’t wait to play it again with updated graphics!

Bringing us bang up to date is the brand new Legend of Zelda game on the Nintendo Switch, possibly the finest game of the whole series (although I’ll always hold a candle to Link’s Awakening on the Game Boy!) it’s a perfect example of how exciting video games can be!

If all this talk of gaming has got your trigger finger itching for some goodies it would be well worth checking out our selection of Gamer Clothing and Gamer TShirts as well as some of the other assorted giftware we have.  We’ve got a great selection and I’ll include some of my favourites below.  Enjoy Video Games Day everyone!!

As 80s kids, we spent much of our childhoods living through the weird and wonderful time that was the 90s. This was a strange, mysterious and generally colourful place where you could be wowed by even the simplest things like analogue controllers, 3D gaming and even split screen gaming!

Like most teenagers in the land then and now, gaming was a huge part of our social and anti-social lives. It passed the time during school holidays and weekends, it brought friends together aaaaand probably caused the odd sibling argument over who was hogging it the most. We’ve all been there.

Doing what we like to do best, we’ve been looking back on these good old days (are we really that old already?!) and thinking up some of our biggest memories from these pixel-tastic times. Check out some of our top retro gaming memories!
.
1. When you console was one of the only things you could play music with…
Yep we’ve been there. When we first had a PS1 we were still rocking our old tape player. This might just be us being behind the times but for a lot of us, the trusty console was the newest and best thing ever and we used it for as much as we sure could.
2. Remembering passwords to get you to your current level…
Yep this might be a shock to many gamers out there but back in the day one way which consoles could get around the lack of any memory was to reveal passwords that would unlock levels. Simply enter the last password you had and you’d jump to your level….if you could remember it or find the scrap of paper you scribbled it down on.
3. Loosing the manual…
Now on the surface probably not a biggie right? But imagine you get stuck or can’t remember or figure out how to do something….with now trusty Google in your pocket or a trip to a laptop away. It’s a scary place to be people.
.
4. Running out of space on your memory card!
Okay so this was a genuine problem! You had a load of games which you had spent far too many hours playing only to find that you would have a constant battle of sacrificing that precious game data to make space for your latest conquest. It was cruel and it’s something we will never get over.
5. Playing multiplayer meant sharing the same screen.
Now this might seem obvious and perhaps trivial, it it’s a game changer! You enemies would always see exactly where you were, what your were doing and how much life you had left. Cruel.
6. Playing on a huuuuge, heavy and hot telly.
HD? HDMI? LED? Resolution? We didn’t bother ourselves with such things as long as we had a telle and it worked. Well….we actually blew one up in a puff of smoke playing Command and Conquer for about 5 hours straight. RIP.
7. Renting games…
Yep, pretty much a retro as rending tapes from your local Blockbuster, games were also up for grabs for just a few pounds a week which meant you could enjoy a whole range of games without forking out a small fortune. BUT it also meant having to return games you had yet to complete.
8. Blowing on your cartridges to get them to magically work.
Times were simple. If your game wasn’t quite booting right or wasn’t doing anything at all. A quick and frantic spit filled blast would sort any problem you could think of.
9. Trying to shoot the dog on Duck Hunt..
Because he was the worst.
10. Having games cases that no matter now careful you were, where you put them or how often you played them would always crack…
So there you have them retro gamers! Can you relate to any of these? Know any more which feller gamers would totally get? Shout out your comments bellow.

Don’t forget to check out our huge range of Gaming merchandise including PlayStation T-Shirts, Nintendo gifts Mario T-Shirts, and so much more! See you there.
