Memorable Video Game Moments!

After out growing action figures and making the transition into…no not adult hood…comic books and Baseball cards,my interest in video games also became more prevalent.Video games gave me the ability to actually control the comic book characters  as well as play out a full 9 inning game of Baseball using my favorite teams.Enter the Nintendo Entertainment System or NES!I didn’t get to own one of these bad boys until the tail end of its popularity and it was a good thing because at that point there were tons of quality games out  for it.But the two games that really made an impact on me in the early 90’s were LJN’s Wolverine and  RBI Baseball 3!I remember walking into my local Electronics Boutique and seeing these two games on  display.I would pick up the display boxes and shake them a bit first,wondering if the actual game was inside,and then turn over to the back to check out the screenshots and drool at the prospect of one day having my own copies of  Wolverine and RBI 3!

After saving up enough Christmas cash I was finally able to pick up a copy of  Wolverine and RBI 3 and didn’t leave the house for a good week or two.I played both of these games religiously ,waking up early on the weekends  to spend more QT with my NES  ;) .

  1. RBI Baseball was good but I loved Bases Loaded lol. I was thinking of doing some art work with the same title very similar to yours. Illustrations of things like your girl friend getting punched in the gut in the beginning of Double Dragon, talking with the old bald man in the green room in Rygar, etc… It’s always fun looking back :)
