Thanks to old-school advertising tactics, one gamer has come across a classic collection of games he gained through cereal box promotions, unearthing a variety of retro titles.

For those who lived through the heyday of sugary cereals and Saturday morning cartoons, toy and game promotions found in cereal boxes were the norm of the time.Through the years, companies and developers have found creative and unorthodox ways to promote their games and products, like the strange soda-themed hero known as Pepsiman who was created to promote a Pepsi-inspired video game.

These special promotions still continue through food and drink products, but it was far more common in the 90s and early 2000s to find surprise gaming products in one's cereal box or a collector's item to accompany a fast food order.

As the years go by, it is easy to forget that advertisements like these even existed, but every once in a while someone happens to unearth a nostalgic reminder of how far gaming has come in the last two decades.
