Time Machine: A Link Back to 90’s Videogames

 

 

Recently in my internet wanderings, I chanced upon a rare buried treasure–the sort that used to pop up regularly before the death of the web.

 

The following piece of archived video only runs three minutes, but in that short time it captures the look and mood of Nintendo headquarters in the High 90s–right around the time Link’s Awakening, not A Link to the Past, came out.

 

Take some time to watch the video and return for a few brief minutes to the era when JRPGs came into the height of their powers, CRT monitors monopolized desks, and four-head VCRs were the only way to time shift TV shows.
