If you were lucky enough to have a Nintendo 64 as a kid, you probably remember "Pokémon Stadium" mini games. They were the perfect cool-down after an intense battle in the Poke Cup-- that is, when you weren't screaming about how you totally pressed the button on time in Rock Harden and it just didn't register, damn it!

What you probably didn't realize, though, is that those games were basically giving you a road map for life ahead. Here are all the times that the "Pokémon Stadium" mini games perfectly showed what it's like to be a college student.
