  1. One of my favorite things about being a kid, was this right here. Getting video games and toys in cereal. I remember when they changed the ‘in the box’ toys to ‘mail-in’ Toys and I couldn’t have been more disappointed.

    I was fine mailing my Kool Aid points in, but not this.

  2. Coolest cereal prize ever. Me and my mates use to crank the shit out of this game thru msn messenger back in highschool. Haha damn im getin old

  3. i remember this, it made me a very happy child. i also remember getting one of the tony hawk’s pro skater games from a similar promotion. good times.

  4. I’m surprised they don’t do this anymore considering games drop in value so quickly nowadays. Plus the ability to push micro transactions to kids, seems like a potential gold mine?

  5. Before the time of CD keys. My neighbor friend and I installed it in our computers, set up a multiplayer game, and I would run over to his house with an IP written down. Because dial up. And it was uphill both ways!

  6. There was a dark time in my life when my parents where split up and I had to live with my aunt’s family. Things were far from great there but I remember some nights I’d get a turn on the family computer and 9/10 I’d use it playing one of the age of empire games…. The fUCKING CARS SHOT B U L L E T S.

  7. My childhood game.

    When I was a kid they would put blue envelopes inside random packets of Walkers Crisps (Lay’s Chips) stuffed with £5 notes.

  8. Ha, this reminds me of being a kid and buying Computer Gaming Monthly just for the demo disc because I wasn’t allowed to buy video games with my allowance. I got really good at the first level of a lot of games lol

  9. Ahhhh I should dig this out of the attic or just download it cos I’m scared of spiders. I sank hundreds of hours on AOE. single core pentium beige box on a 14” CRT monitor with a mouse that had a ball in it. #neverforget

  10. I still have 2 copies of Chex Quest. Doom-like shooter PC game. Came in boxes of Chex cereal in the 90’s.

  11. Not sure if anyone else Has posted this info but Microsoft are launching The Age of Empires: Definitive Edition beta today at 10am PT on the Xbox Insider Hub app for the PC
