Remember the 90s? What am I talking about, of course you do. But if you want to really remember them, like, vividly, watch these episodes of the 1996 edition of GamePro TV, which have been uploaded by the Oakland-based Museum of Art & Digital Entertainment.

Why? It's the inspiration for Saturn classic NiGHTS Into Dreams, according to the game's creator Yuji Naka, who tells you everything you've ever wanted to know about the cult Sega hit in a new interview.
While Sega's jester wasn't slated to appear in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, Sega and developer Sumo Digital took the heartfelt pleas from countless fans to heart, giving NiGHTS a very important role in the upcoming racer.
