In between (and several hours after) actual NFL games, you could plug into NFL Blitz for some high-scoring, ass-kicking and light tea-bagging action in one of the first decently appealing football games. Don't deny that you tried to abuse your friends' players in between plays.
It wasn't quite Mario Kart, but immediately after the release of it, the Donkey Kong world gave us a similarly awesome racing game in Diddy Kong. It just was mostly lacking in Princess and her tight ass.
For those us on flat land or stuck in sunny California, "1080" was our way of vicariously living extreme without breaking our legs back in the late '90s. It was the X-Games of our lives, at least until we went sledding in our backyard.
Probably the best way to take out your aggression as a child (and still today) would be the super spinoff, Super Smash Bros. It was the only time in the '90s where it was acceptable to smack a bitch (sorry, Link).
Endless hours were spent inside of barrel rolls and eating bananas, not unlike real life in the late '90s. Donkey Kong was a mild obsession, and by "mild," we mean intense.
Personally, I never got too into Star Fox, but I would sit and watch my friends obsess over it for hours. When I would try to hop in when one of them got up to use the bathroom, they would growl like feral animals at me. Looked fun though!
A graphically and energetically more upgrade from the Super NES Super Mario, 64 gave us a fresh look at a classic. If this came free with the system, it was all you really needed to be happy.
Most people will rate this as the best N64 game out there. While we love a little Link, it wasn't our favorite but we definitely consider this one of the best incarnations of the Zelda legacy.
No game was more addictive or better to play when a wee bit stoned than some good old Mario Kart. We were hooked on it with Super NES, but this sealed the deal. Once, I drank mushroom tea and forgot about it until about halfway through Rainbow Road, where I lost my shit, both virtually and other-worldly.
While Pierce wasn't always our top pick for James Bond, GoldenEye (1995) was pretty epic and led to one of the greatest shoot-em-up games of the '90s. So many days in the Facility, so many nights in the Bunker, but nothing compared to squatting down and zooming in on Natalya's hot ass.
