Nowadays, video game fans have the Xbox One and PS4 to fight over which is more powerful, while PC and Nintendo fans are kind of just off doing their own thing. However, if you liked video games in the 90s, you probably get flashbacks to just how heated the rivalry was over which console you preferred
In particular, these 25 images will take you through just how close we all came to total playground destruction, all over which thing to play video games was the "best."
It's impossible to overstate just how revolutionary and influential the Nintendo Entertainment System was to video games.
Nintendo even followed it up by giving us the Game Boy, the first system that let us take all of our games on the go.
However, in the late summer of 1989, a challenger appeared: the Sega Genesis.
Sega didn't waste any time trying to seem like they were that much better than their rivals at Nintendo.
For starters, the console was 16-BITS instead of 8! That was twice the number of bits, which meant it was twice as good!
Let's not forget BLAST PROCESSING either!

Not only that, but their new mascot, Sonic the Hedgehog, immediately threw down the gauntlet against Nintendo's already iconic Super Mario.
The system even had ports of some super popular arcade games on it... that you could play at HOME!
In short, it was every kid's dream come true, and we all wanted one.
But then, a year later, Nintendo fired back with possibly one of the most beloved consoles of all time: the Super Nintendo.
It was ALSO 16-Bit, and could even do these crazy Mode-7 graphics!
Not to mention Mario was back, and this time he brought his new dinosaur buddy Yoshi along for the ride.
And just like that, everything changed. The Console Wars of the 90s had begun.
Things just get uglier from here...
Everyone drew lines in the sand. You were either on Team Nintendo, or Team Sega.
It was Final Fight versus Streets of Rage.
F-Zero versus Outrun.
Final Fantasy III versus Phantasy Star IV.
Kirby Super Star versus Ristar.
Contra III versus Vectorman.
And of course, The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past versus Beyond Oasis.
Which one you chose was serious business. Seriously, fights started over this.
Playground arguments were had between each set of fans for days at a time.
Except of course for that one rich kid who had both.
And that one weirdo who was all about the Turbografx-16.
At the end of the day though, what we remember most is the games.
Using the computer as a kid was kind of a privilege that you didn't get everyday. Kids now have little computers in their pockets from a young age, so probably a lot of the novelty has worn off. Even when we weren't allowed to use the internet, there was one program that would entertain us for hours, and that was Microsoft Paint. The simple software that came preinstalled on every computer was basically everyone's favorite thing. The only thing we would use more than Paint was probably Solitaire. Between Paint and Solitaire we could have spent hours on the
We've all been waiting months for the details of the new Charmed reboot and now we finally have our first look at it. That's right, the CW released the first trailer and it's a lot to take in. We find out the general plot of the show, a little bit about the three sisters, and see a small hint of the supernatural elements they will be going up against. First of all, one original 'Charmed' witch is not that happy about itThe WBEven though it's too late to do anything about it now, Holly Marie Combs, who played Piper Halliwell,
John Travolta has played a lot of roles over his long career, but there are very few more iconic and important than the role of Danny Zuko in Grease. The movie came out 40 years ago, and still it remains a beloved classic that literally everyone loves. I mean, if you say you don't love it chances are you're lying to yourself. Travolta may fall into the tabloids a lot with some rumors about his life, but the fact that is always indisputable is that hes one of the biggest stars, and his role as Danny was the actual best
If you grew up in the 90s, you've watched Whose Line Is It Anyway?, at least once. It was one of the biggest shows in the country and was the introduction to improv comedy for each and every one of us. Drew Carey was the host of the show that made us all laugh hysterically for years. He was joined every episode by Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles. Wayne Brady was almost always there too, so eventually he became one of the regulars as well.ABCThey would also have another guest on every episode to fill in the last empty
