The 1990's were a sort of golden age for console and PC gaming.

Gone were the days when E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial sold so poorly that copies of it were buried in a New Mexico desert. It was an age of creativity and quality.

With so many great games coming out of one decade, we tend to only remember some of them. Chances are that if even if you played them, you forgot them. And if you were born in the late 1990's, you probably never even heard of them.

We've got your back. Here are 20 games, in no particular order, lost to (recent) time. You should pick them up, brush them off (or blow into them), and get them back into rotation.
