I was born in 1987. Around this time in video gaming, the Nintendo Entertainment System was dominating the video game market and everyone at the time already forgot about that wood paneled console named Atari 2600. Bleeps and Boops on the screen, and squares battling squares. It was primitive, but for it's time, it was groundbreaking.
