Okay, I turned 30 in August, so this list is a little late. I'll be adding more to it as I come across games that jog my memory.

I loved flipping the people off the bookcase - that was my favorite method of demise. But what a pain this was to set up! Still played it at least twice a week with my friends, though.

Obvious 90s game. We all played this, yes?

I cringe at the thought that I even owned this.

The electronic voice in this got annoying after a while "SALE! CLEARANCE!", but I did love using the fake credit card. It's a great game for teaching your kids how to be materialistic over spenders. I blame the debt crisis on this game.

God, I was such a stereotypical 90s kid. Loved using the map in this one - I felt very immersed in the BSC universe.

A hidden object game before the advent of the computer version. But it wasn't just a simple seek and find - the cartoon side made you think a bit.

I remember, after having my 3rd kid in this game, saying "where is the 'get an abortion' space?" and offending my one conservative friend. Who I didn't know was that conservative. Jokes - I suck at them.

This was more fun because of the cute themed hotels you could set up.

This was one of my favorite Goosebumps books, and thus, one of my favorite games.

I have Muscular Dystrophy, so when I was a kid, it took me some extra force to smash down on the lever to make the hippo open its mouth. But it was one of my favorite ways to get out some frustration Too bad I always lost because I wasn't fast enough.
