Yeah, I'd say that was a good year for games.

Wow! It really is like looking back on classmates from my childhood (only with games, and more gradeschool era).
New games just don't speak to me like that.

Reminds me of an article where someone compared the Capcom Classics Collection to a High School reunion.

Yeah but they were released in 88 also lol. Doesn't matter those two years especially 87 made video games so big. The master system is out, the nes is full swing, the arcades were still killing it, the Entertainment was awesome, the music, and the mania and the madness were becoming the MEGAPOWERS BROTHA!!!!!!
