Oh the 90s. A time when boy bands serenaded the world (“Might sound crazy but it ain't no lie baby bye bye bye!…Tell me why! Ain't nothing but a heartache…tell me why!”) while we danced around in our light up sneakers and adorned our hair with jiggling butterfly clips.

But the 90s nostalgia wouldn't be complete without the addicting games that caused us to waste our childhood away. Miss your Tamagotchi? Longing to have sore fingers again due to hours of Crash Bandicoot play time?
