This is one of those great commercial series that I actually forgot existed until recently, but hey, that’s why we do what we do here at The Nostalgia Blog. Well that and getting women the right to vote. What’s that? Women have be able to vote since the 19th century? Well I guess we can cross one thing off our list. U-S-A! U-S-A! But back to these commercials. Growing up a Die-Hard Nintendo guy it was hard to admit I liked these commercials as much as I did. It was a very funny way to let the world know that Playstation had arrived on the scene and were taking no prisoners. Now almost 20 years later Playstation is my console of choice and Nintendo is only played in NES or SNES form. So it’s all come full circle…I think…I’m not really sure, all the circles I draw come out looking like cows.
Here is a video of Chad Neidt playing a 1 minute acoustic melody of 16 different classic video games. Personally I would have loved a little more time on on each song but you kids have fried your brains so much on game boys and Boy George records that it’s near impossible to keep your attention for more than a minute. I bet you didn’t even read this whole article did you? Nope, right to the video. Well for those of your who slugged it out to the end, here is theplaylist in order: 1. PacMan 2. Super Mario Bros. 3.
