The following ads are all from either the late 80s or early 90s, and were found in the pages of my old comic books and wrestling magazines:
Bill and Ted on NES . . . Excellent! And Game Boy Too . . . Not Bogus?
One of the all time best! I bought this on Xbox Live a couple years ago and it still holds up!
I'll still take the Pond Scum Thank You Very Much!
I had this and didn't really care for it to be honest. Nowhere near as good as the X-Men arcade game that was out around the same time.
"Streets of Rage" was a pretty good beat'em up. I liked part 2 a lot better though.
This game was so ahead of it's time! I want "Smash TV" right now!
Tiger games were always pretty bad imo. I never played this one though so I can't say for sure.
This series was pretty much on it's last leg at this point, but the live action movie was the final nail in its coffin!
A True Classic and the introduction of an icon!
The only Sega CD game that I ever played was "Sewer Sharks" because they use to have it at Block Buster Video on display. I remember a friend having "Night Trap", but there really wasn't much you could do with that one . . . So horrible!
And last but not least, who could forget the Game Genie? This was the only way I was able to play hard as shit games like Castlevania when I was 7.
Well that is all for the Video Game Edition of SMF's Vintage Print Ads. Next week I think I'm going to round up some toy ads to showcase!
