Released in 1989, Friday the 13th for the Nintendo Entertainment System cast you as a camp counselors who had to somehow destroy an oddly blue-and-purple Jason Voorhees..

It was a game-changer for me as a kid (pun intended)..

I finally figured out lighting all of the fire places mattered, and finding the pitch fork in the third level was the key to destroying Jason. But … it took years of frustration to get there.

This game is often lampooned.. but seriously, it remains in my heart one of the best. I ever fire up the old Nintendo I have now and then just to play when the craving hits hard.
