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.
While it's been known since 2015 that Nintendo was teaming up with Universal to create a park that would give all of us a chance to explore our dream worlds, it's been a long time before we got any news. But now, three years later, Universal has finally started building. I know, I'm screaming too. The best thing about this park is that while the first one is getting built in Japan, they aren't stopping at one. The Nintendo theme park will be coming to both Orlando AND Hollywood. That means we don't have to take these huge international trips

This Throwback Thursday, we're flashing back to the business classic Barbarians at the Gate. Originally a book written by business journalists John Helyar and Bryan Burrough, the HBO film version was released in 1993. Barbarians at the Gate tells the (ultimately unsuccessful) story of a group of RJR Nabisco executives who attempted to buy the entire company in what's called a leveraged buyout.On its own, the story is a fascinating look into the world of business, and an overall great example of business reporting. It's also home to a lot of lessons for anyone negotiating on behalf of corporations.
