10 Games You Played Because You Owned The Wrong System
You can't have everything.
For most 90s kids, owning a single video game system was a luxury that only other, richer people could afford. Owning more than one was a ridiculous fantasy, so decisions had to be made: a console war born of necessity raged. As a result, there were some brilliant games that all of us missed out on simply because we owned the wrong system.
Maybe you got lucky and knew a neighbour that owned the console you didn't have, but for the most part, seeking the lost experience meant plundering our own game libraries for an adequate substitute for what we couldn't play. Which is precisely why developers ripped each other off so casually. The process was a slippery slope, of course.
Sometimes you were rewarded with a hidden gem, but more often than not you got burned on a blatant knock-off that could never match the real thing. Like video game Mockolate. But one way or another, these games still left an indelible impact on your childhood gaming memories.
