After spending the last few night watching, “The 80’s: The Decade That Made Us of the National Geographic Channel, it suddenly occurred to me just how much I’ve been pining nostalgic for my childhood. I was six when the 80’s officially took hold and I remember a great deal of the decade, especially the toys and the video games that filled my life with things to do and pretty bright lights. So, just for fun, I thought I’d give a little rundown of a bunch of great video game commercials from not only the 80’s, but also the late 70’s through the 90’s. Sorry, but the ads now-a-days just can’t hold a candle to the classics. So strap yourselves into the Way-Back Machine and check out some great ads.
