8. Fun games being artificially lengthened with cheap deaths, lack of lives/continues, and such (I guess this still happens but lots of games were short back in the old days so the problem was more common, I think).

18. You realize, 5 years later, that the sprite you thought looked sorta funny only did because you were looking at it wrong the whole time. It looks a lot cooler when you realize what it is actually supposed to be. CURSE YOU LOW RESOLUTION!!
