I want a video game where you play a cartoon character and when you get hurt in those cliche cartoon ways you stay in the form for the rest of the level and you need to get hurt in specific ways to solve puzzles
so like you get a piano dropped on you and you are flat
Oh shit I blinked, now I'm 20 years in the past. What do I do?
Ascertain quickly your assets that you have with you - money in particular. You’re going to be in a bit of a bind for cash mostly - chances are good you won’t have physical money on you, just cards. The cards will be worthless because the accounts for them don’t exist yet. If you’re above the age of 20 already, seek out your family. It’ll be difficult for them to believe your story, but if they’re science fiction fans they should at least be open to the possibility. Be prepared to answer general questions about them and your life. Odds are still good they won’t believe you, but it’s your best bet. If they call the police, stick around and request fingerprint analysis with yourself as evidence, though chances are your parents won’t be interested in humoring the situation, but it’s the best chance you’ve got for definitive proof. DNA testing is a possibility, but I don’t know how well-used it really was in the mid-90s and that’s time-consuming. Now if you’re not anywhere near where your family is at this point, seek out the police anyway. They obviously won’t believe your story, but they can point you in the direction of a homeless shelter. It’s not a great option, but it’s a warm bed and meal while you get your bearings and figure out your next move.
Assuming family does believe you, you have two options before you: one, try to figure out how you got sent back in time. If you just blinked and it happened, odds are good you won’t be able to figure out how to get back. Sorry. But that does lead to option two: use your advanced knowledge of the future for profit. Obviously you won’t be carrying around stocks or lottery numbers, but what you WILL have is known trends, especially from 1994 onwards. My personal recommendations: start with investing in Ty, the makers of Beanie Babies. The craze will last for a few years, but get out early - say, 1997 or so. From there, move investments over to Pokémon. The craze should last until around 2000, and from there you should have enough money for relative comfort for a while. You can’t prevent 9/11, unfortunately - people won’t believe you and odds are good you don’t have enough knowledge on the hijackers and their backgrounds to stop them yourself. Anonymous tips to the cops MIGHT help in preventing the attacks, but that’ll only get you so far. And doing so will probably cause the space/time continuum to start circling the drain and create ripples that will alter everything you know. Buuut might be worth a try just for a laugh.
Beyond that, the knowledge of impending disasters over the next decade is more helpful in making sure you or the people you care about aren’t anywhere near those locations. Additional investments in the early-2000s will be Apple, since iPods and other MP3 players will start taking off, which will lead to all the various other Apple products that will start to make them gazillions.
