Nothing really drills in the fact that one is aging as deep as seeing some of your favorite things grow old and turn “retro”, and in 2015, everything from 1995 is turning 20. But what a good year it was; Toy Story and Billy Madison came out, No Doubt’s Tragic Kingdom blew up on the radio and Japan was killing it in the gaming community. Not only did Nintendo release the Virtual Boy, but they unveiled the upcoming Nintendo 64, and North America got both the Playstation and Sega Saturn in one year.
In celebration of an all-around awesome year, I’ve put together a list of 20 games that are hitting the big 2-0 in 2015. And for your viewing pleasure, I’ve added the original trailers for most of the games.
