We still remember the good old days when going to the mall was cool and playing video games at the arcade was awesome.
Here are 10 Amazing Memories That Will Make You Miss The ’80s:
10. ’80s TV
Back in the ’80s, “Must-see TV” meant Knight Rider, The-A-Team, Miami Vice, and Magnum PI. Some were sitcoms, some were cartoons, some were for grownups, and some were for kids. They were simply too good to be forgotten!
9. ’80s Movies
Who could forget the classic movies of the ’80s? Box office favorites such as Back To The Future, The Empire Strikes Back and E.T. entertained millions and influenced pop culture.
8. Blockbuster Video
Going to video rental stores was part of our daily life. It was almost a ritual. Even though now it’s much easier to watch the latest films and TV series, there was something cool about browsing the shelves of Blockbuster and hoping to find a good movie.
7. The Mall
6. The Arcade
Decades ago, arcades sprung up all over the U.S. From kids to grownups, everyone was crazy about arcade games like Burger Time, Pac Man, and Donkey Kong.
Arcades were also a major hub for people to connect and hang out. Today’s arcades are completely different than those from the ’80 and lack that special feel and atmosphere.
