Retro 16bit Gaming Had Some of the Raddest Visual Effects

I was in the single digits when the SNES and the like released to the world, and was blown away with the things games were allowing you to do. Even more so, the way the games started to look and sound. Since then, we’ve come a long way in terms of graphics and realism, but for me, nothing can trump the memories of pure awe from the 90s.
