Christmas is a time of joy and giving and also hoping and praying that come Christmas morning, there are some very specific game changers under the tree that will improve your life and make you a more important person once the holiday smoke clears.
Continuing our journey through Christmas Past, here’s five top selling gifts that changed your life forever in 1995.
Virtual Boy Game System Kit
Remember back when 3D virtual experiences were going to completely change the game? Me neither. Look at this sweet ass tennis game, though:
It’s like I’m-a-Mario, and I’m-in-da-game.
Max Force Razor Beast
In the 90’s, everything needed weird bright colors, spikes, and a general splash of TOTALLY EXTREME. And nothing says EXTREME more than foam darts shot out of a gun called a RAZOR BEAST. I feel like the kid that would shoot you with this thing would pound a Mountain Dew and yell SEGA! into the camera right after. Your nerf fencing sword is so five years ago.
And you didn’t think I’d include anything for the ladies. You guys, Barbie is back and she’s here to TEACH. And before you say anything about her only teaching little white kids, there was also an edition that included a black child so that you and Barbie can reenact all of your favorite scenes from Dangerous Minds.
SHE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU.
Saved By The Bell: The New Class Game
Zack and Kelly join in on the fun!!!111!!! Holy shit this is depressing. I’d rather play the College Years game where the kids learn how long they’ll be paying off student loans. Standing at the end of tomorrowwww!
