If you are over 20 years old, then you probably know what Dendy is and what a stir this prefix caused in children in the nineties. Even now, the Dendy Forever group lives in the VKontakte social network, and it has accumulated a lot of children's photos of participants with a prefix.
"Logging with friends, playing Dendy on tiny black-and-white TVs, the joy of New Year's gifts — all this is here, on these priceless artifacts from the past. The text is taken from the author's captions to the photos."
Ivan Dremlyuzhenko: "I play Tiny Toon on a Sega that I borrowed from my uncle very long ago and early in the morning."
Sergey Shchelokov: "I play Ultimat on a small black-and-white TV, the old lamp burned down, and I played on a new color one only when no one was at home (well, you understand why)."
Yuri Papai: "October 1994. My birthday, all the attention is on the TV. The Dendy Junior prefix".
Alexander Gladskikh: "New Year 1997. I'm in the third grade. And what's under the tree-OMG! SMD with Batman Forever cartridge! I will play this console in the next six years until I buy a PC in 2003."
Daria Prilepskaya: "I'm with my fiance and my brother. Apparently, it's 1995, my birthday. The prefix "Syubor" was brought to my brother and me by Santa Claus only a few days ago. We're playing Mario, as far as I remember."
Ilya Pospelov: "1996. January 1. The whole country is drinking, and I'm playing Dendy."
Vladislav Kliman: "We are playing with my brother in the game room, which was opened by our father. We have never had our own console at home."
Roman Sysoev: "New year 1994. The Enemy clone "Panther"".
Vadim Kozakov: "In the course, only the beginning of 2000. I am playing with a friend (he is on the right) on a black-and-white approximately 8-inch TV at my house. Along the way, we came with a new purchased cartridge and decided to check it right away. Mom filmed it."
Evgeny Reppel: "This is my brother. The photo is many years old, appreciate the TV."
Alina Pankova: "Around 1997 (I don't remember exactly), I was given a "Syubor" for the New Year — they provided me with happiness, myopia and love for eight-bit games for life."
Roman Petersky: "1995. In the background, as everyone has already seen, Zero Tolerance. And yes, yes, those awful shirts, I know."
Yaroslav Matveev: "Back in 1996. I've had Sega for three years now, but I really wanted to play Dizzy, the very first game that I had a chance to play a long time ago on Spectrum. My parents refused to buy me a second console, as they did not see the difference. I had to turn around, and the sub-keyboard helped me in this! I told my parents that it is almost like a real computer and it will be very useful to me in my studies. And so on my birthday, my parents gave me this miracle of Chinese thought, and my friends gave me "Dizzy". The photo just shows how my friends and I are cutting in "Dizzy", well, the friends themselves are in the second photo. You can also notice in the background the most fashionable collection of beer cans and a stack of videotapes! Also the infernal radiola."
Sergey Klimenko: "The New year 1997 is one of the happiest in my memory. Sega and Mortal Kombat II".
Joseph Kramer: "Approximately 1997. The Legend Of Kage game is on the screen. In the photo on the left — me, my friend Denis and Stas. The prefix is Dendy Panther".
