Archdruid Gaming Contest | Gaming Decades: The 90's - Total Prize Pool: 30 STEEMs!!!

What’s up party people!

We are officially at the end of 2019, June! Amazing how time flies by :O Hope you are all doing well, and playing games, or at least reminiscing or fantasizing about them (like me) hello darkness my old friend XD;

@archdruid wrapped up our 80s contest a couple of weeks ago, and we saw a whooping jump from only SEVEN entries for the 70s to NINETEEN for the 80s!!! AMAZING!!! That’s OVER 9000!!!! over 170% of growth in our participation rate!!! MUCH THANKSNESS TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED * ___ * You are all our heroes You Say Run from My Hero Academia plays in the background * ___ *

And so it is time to launch the next round in the theme: Gaming in the 90s !!!


  1. You are to create a post about a game from the 1990s :D
    The 1990s was one of THE defining age for Gaming! Many said that the decade spanning from 1990 to 2000 were the age of INNOVATION for video games! New gaming tech was born, new gaming genres began, new gaming cultures took roots ! New spiders were sent to your homes !!! Whichever way, if you had played a game - ANY GAME - from the 1990s, this is a perfect opportunity to pay homage to a momentous decade in Gaming! C'mooooon you had to, there were so many games, like japan dude... STOP MAN WE HAVE ENOUGH AAAAAAA AAAAAAA AAAAAAA
  1. The post does not need to be about a game review or a video of actual gameplay!
    You can do fanart, or fanfic, or commentary piece about a game's soundtrack, or a cosplay of a character from a game that was released in the 1990s, or photography post with your collection of oldie-but-goodie games, ... you get the idea, right? perhaps you can do a fanart of the fanfic about a gamer reviewer that takes photographies about her favorite games while doing a cosplay and listening to a soundtrack! ANYTHING GOES AS LONG AS THE POST HAS A RELATION TO A GAME RELEASED SOMEWHERE IN THE 1990s! We are opening up the playfield and we welcome Steemians of various genres to come and join the @archdruid's love for gaming!
  1. Limit of 3 entries per author. Like more than two but don't over do it making four please

What were the NINETIES like for gaming???

Here are a few examples of how gaming was that might inspire you but you can do whatever you want :D

Age of Empires

Build stuff!!! Smash stuff!!! Wait for your turn !!!

Expand you empire with strategy and the fine art of hitting buildings with a sword untill they catch fire!

Baldur’s Gate

A spider’s mind was blown when a spider found out that a spider could decide to kill and be mean to a spider’s party members :D

If you explore for a while you'll find a murder-hobbo on crack that kills like 20 Gnolls by himself!!!


Just… just let me play ONE MORE TURN!!! …. OMG why is it 4 AM??!!!

Time to put on some Blue Jeans and Listen to Pop Music!!!

Command & Conquer

A spider experienced a spider’s first taste at RTS MULTIPLAYER :D Friendships were lost !!!

Chinesse militia spawned x2 totally unfair... but totally hilarious!


The game that ate a spider for a few years. WHOLE.


The Elder Scrolls

A spider played this for looting houses…… There were SO MANY HOUSES ; __ ;

I had to use that gif, Todd made me!


Apparently, not the first MMO but one that we can all blame for the genre, anyway :D !

When I was a little dragon I bought this game without knowing I needed an internet conection... you can laugh now


Making post-apocalypse a cute and nerdy thing :)

Don't go to the Radscorpion cave alone, for real!

Fire Emblem

Collect all the pokemon characters!!! ALL. OF. THEM!

How did we ended with a waifu petting game? Not that I'm complaining!

Gabriel Knight

Graphic adventure’s Prince of inconsistent New Orleans voice acting

Hey! Mark Hamill was in this!

Grand Theft Auto

Grab a car off the street! Paint it new! Now yours to murder with! WHEEEEE~

Yeah a lot of fun at all but remember that because of this we had the helicopter mission!

Half Life

Making bespectacled scientist with spanner a date icon

The legendary spammers of mods!

Monkey Island

Hello! I’m Guybrush Threepwood! Mighty Pirate! :D


Mortal Kombat


I miss the legion of identical ninjas


Pretty puzzle solving~

Ooooh that's what that do!.. The game


Gotta catch them all :D



Like Doom…. But different. But, basically Doom.

The multiplayer made me think my firends didn't liked me

Resident Evil

Who knew a city named so cutely could be so intense! Raccoon City, where Rocket might be from!

This house is dangerous, there are terrible demons, OUCH!

Soul Calibur

A spider played this game just because there was a giant sword with an eye in it :D

Have you seen how she dresses? And people complains about DOA

Sonic the Hedgehog


We will not talk about any adaptation here




Streets of Rage

Campy gaming goodness * ___ *


System Shock

A spider played System Shock 2 for a grand total of 2 hours and countless screaming :D

Antivirus are important guys


Hwoarang is the sole reason why a spider played Tekken . __ .

Remember when your little bro always picked Eddie?


A rare game set in the steampunk genre :>

Be as bad as you like

Tomb Raider

The world fell for Lara’s polygons * ___ *

You could make Lara explode! with a british accent...

Tony Hawk’s

Skating, and turning it into a gaming icon :O

You still remember the soundtrack


Did you all see the movie???? ; __ ;

For Doomhammer!

Wing Commander

Luke Skywalker was in this :D :D :D

English Post / Spanish Post

Good Luck to All, and thank you so much @Archdruid! 💕

This is my entry to the contest. I wanted to post it sooner but life happened :sweat_smile:

I'm finally getting a comment to cross-reference where I posted these, even though I finished them all comfortably before the deadline:

The 90's: Decade of the RPG:

The Joy of Total Annihilation: in hindsight, this name sounds really sketchy

Doom: The First Great Shooter:

Good Evening @archdruid !
(It's @Tesmoforia using Vanuzza's account)

I would like to ask if, pretty please, there was the possibility of extend the time to post a little (just a couple of hours), since my laptop went out of battery and I would like to post my second entry, but there was a general power outage on the city a couple of hours ago, and I don't have any way to turn on my laptop until the electricity comes back on the early morning
; ---- ;

Hello again! Here's my second entry for the contest ; 7 ; I know the deadline was yesterday, and that I wasn't able to post on time due problems with the electricity at my zone, but I still share it hoping you will like it and to be able to figure within the participants 🙏 👾 ✨
