video games galore in the 1996 toys r us ad

I've shown you a Best Buy ad from 1996 before, but now it's time to take a look at what all the kids were asking Santa for from the Toys R Us ad.

First of all... why in the world were there THAT MANY gaming systems?! Am I crazy for thinking that's a lot?! And no wonder my parents were so eager to get my brother and I Gameboys... They were the cheapest option and we wouldn't fight over the games!

Another reason I love the 90s: It's the last time I could actually play video games and win at them. This whole double joystick thing is just too much.
