Vintage video game ads from the 1980s and 90s

Sonic the Hedgehog is celebrating his twentieth anniversary this year. First released on SEGA Mega Drive in 1991, the famous blue hedgehog has become a worldwide gaming icon from a time when you actually had to plug the controller into the console and if you wanted to play against someone you had to go and get the kid next door. Sacrilege! This collection of video game advertisements from the 1980s and 90s features many of the classic motion pictures of the time and their accompanying video games. Of course, the collection wouldn’t be complete without other childhood favourites like Super Mario, Donkey Kong, and my personal favourite, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
