Classic Video Games

As if my poll I put up earlier wasn't a big enough hint I will be mainly discussing the big names. Which are, Donkey Kong, Mario, Sonic, and Mega Man.

Ah yes the games I so thoroughly enjoyed in my youth. I remember putting hours upon hours into these series. Who knows how much time I've "wasted" having fun with these games. Well enough personal nostalgia for the moment.

I will mention Donkey Kong Country first.














Donkey Kong Country was released in November of 1994. It is a side-scrolling platformer. Like all the games I will be going over the next couple of days.

In Donkey Kong Country you are on Kong Island, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong must retrieve the hoard of bananas stolen by King K. Rool and the Kremlings. As you collect the bananas from the islands different areas, the Kongs must eliminate many different foes, some native to the island as well as the Kremlings. Which are essentially alligators and other reptiles. Well that is the basis of the game. I know thats kind of a crappy overview but not sure exactly what to say. So instead have a video.








Thus concludes part one of my overview of classic video games. Stay tuned for other parts.
