"A compilation of some of the funniest PlayStation nostalgia perfectly captured through a hashtag."
Leaving my PS2 on for days because I didn't have a memory card.
I did that once but then a day later we lost power :( 8MB back then seem like a lot of space. Now a days its not even enough to cover update.
Is the video official ? Does that mean that the Ps4 has the same sound from the Ps2 ?
@pedro It's official. And I think it does! :D
I lacked both psx and ps2 memory cards for a good while, so there were many times systems were left on for a week at a time or more. First thing that comes to my head... Using a phoenix down on that boss in FFVII for the instant win. (The one in the Cosmo Canyon cave)
one of my favorite moments in gaming was at PSone era, there was a time i was playing SF EX+alpha, Bust a Groove, Heart of Darkness, Abe's Odyssey. Also missing class with my buddies to play Winning Eleven back in time is one of my best memories.
@stevehyphen Gold! why did it take you so long to find another memory card
@meatysausage Too cheap to buy one. Scratch that, too young to work and my parents were too cheap to buy one. Also, this conjured up another memory... One time I rented Dead or Alive (the first one) for psx, and just kept it running as I didn't have a memory card. When I played it the next day I had a poopload of cheats unlocked. (including the bouncing breasts, I believe) I had no idea you could unlock stuff by amount of play time, haha. What can I say? I was like 13 or 14.
My friends consistently doing 26+ combos on me in Tekken, and asking them to go easy on me meant only doing 20+ combos on me. Actually, I don't like Tekken now because of that...
Its Magic!! That sound!! Makes me feel like on Christmas. :)
One of my favorite PS1 memories: http://youtu.be/HXTlnBhrWLI This game was a blast!
I did that in God of War for the Challenge of the Gods, because you couldn't not save in between and the last one was a pain in the ass and after 1 hour of trying and failing I preferred playing soccer with my friends and tried it when I got up the next day... And I did it eventually :D
I remember getting Resident Evil Code Veronica X with my PS2 and trying to play without a memory card. I got as far as the tyrant attack as you make to leave the island and then died. For my first playthrough, I was pretty gutted.
That PS1 Harry Potter game, I never managed to finish it as I was restarting it every week due to a memory cards shortage in my town :/
I still do this when playing RPG's. Pause it and come back 4-5 hours later.
That right there...!!! That... aaaahhhh I can't add anything else!!
Getting my ps1 chipped then reallising the only way it would work is if it was upside down!
Getting like 4 memory cards the following Christmas, and then cycling them out to find the right save!
JamPack demo disks that seemingly never got old!
September 9th, 1995. Being one of the first in line to buy a PSone and bringing it home and playing it. It was an amazing experience to play a 3D game and technology was nothing like it is today. Cell phones weren't even that relevant.
One of my best gaming memories is being so deeply in love with GTA San Andreas as a 14 year old boy that even when my audio cable broke i carried on playing for hours on end anyway, just me and my 14 inch portable tv.
Kingdom hearts, need i say more.
one of my best memories was going online for the first time on the ps2. can anyone remember that online game that game with the ps2 network adapter, man that was so much fun driving round and causing major anarchy online
Madden 03 was my first playstation 2 online game
Mine is using my own money from my first job to buy my very own PS1.
I have so much fun with ps1 and 2 has kid I don't know where to start best console ever
Nice edit, troll.
Seeing Onimusha 3 intro in my new PS2 in 2004 (yeah kinda late to the party, I was cheap poor), holy shit. Boss battle in Syphon Filter way back in 2000, Gabe Logan vs Anton Girdeux, that was intense.
As a kid it never crossed my mind that i had to shoot his back (Girdeux ) that was crazy difficult for me as a kid. Nowdays its like one of the easiest boss battles ever lol.
Being uninformed about games is another great memory. I remember buying FFVIII without even knowing what kind of a game it was.
i had similar situation where i bought breath of fire 3 without even knowing what breath of fire was about. needless to say it's like one of my favorite games of all time. talk about a underrated RPG in the midst of the once juggernaut that was sqauresoft.
Yeah nowdays kids are spoiled by the internet.
Yup, back in the day we would occasionally see a game on shelf we never knew about, never saw on a magazine, but likeing the cover we took it home anyway, with outlandish expectations none the less! And even when it would not be what we we're thinking, there was good chance we would still be satisfied and thankful for the good time spent. Today kids b*tch about games which they are yet to play being rated 8.7/10 instead of 9+ by some random guy on the internet.
Devil may Cry!! Lmao i have a pic of me that my wife took, girl friend at the time, that pic shows how much i was into that game...
Getting rid, got 120 notes for it. Happy days
Agree^^ And put the money to my xbox one pre order!
One of my best memories is the playstation start up sounds, those are unforgettable
100% Spyro the Dragon, the first game i had EVER completed! And then realising it went up to 120% thanks to the additional level lol. That and MGS2 intro, which was part of the original trailer, Snake in stealth camo diving off a bridge onto a boat with just a bit of rope to save him... still makes me smile now!
spyro: year of the dragon and CTR were the games that made my childhood in the ps1 era
My funniest memory isn't funny. Went through 3 PS1's and 2 PS2's because they kept breaking on me.
Memory cards. Oh, all the shenanigans associated with them :) The best memory I have is of the sound and logo of the PS1 when you started a game up.
yeah that PS1 SCE intro was something else.
I only could afford a PS2 in 2005 so never played PS2 very much but since 2002 i owned a Dual Shock 2 (yeah its compatible with PS1) and it was awesome to play FF8/9 with that controler...good times.
Although I have many gaming moments like everyone else in here One stands out at me the most is getn my ps2 after leaving the hospital three days prior to launch date which is in four more days (happy 13th birthday ps2).I was on bed rest the time, I knew I had to get my console. I drove my self around Indianapolis to find one I was number 106 @bestbuy i was ten dollars short due to the sale tax, this kind lady help me with the tax in return she ask me how to hook her new PS gave her a quick guide. Talk about blessings from a new gamer. Even tho there is more to this story, I'm paraphrasing the meat of it....
Playing FFX till the morning hours as a teenager listening to INXS... Good times...
FFVII was my entire reason for joining the Sony cult. I remember the gaming magazine that had pages of screen shots and I couldn't wait. Me and my sister saved up our own money to buy one we didn't ask our parents to buy it. I was 13 she was 11, talk about good times.
Playstation memories... Having to plug the controller in the other port to beat Psycho Mantis... Mind... Blown! Riiiiidge Racer - both the meme and the original arcade conversion. Was so awesome to power slide in those early games Jak and Daxter 1, 2 and 3 - beyond awesome GTAIII - nuff said Standing my ancient PS1 on its side to make it work (and eventually having to place it upside down to get the CD drive to read) The PS2 looking like something from 2001 A Space Odyssey How Sony nearly blew it with the PS3 Seeing Drakes trousers get soaked after walking through water in Uncharted... Graphics from teh futre!!! Rendered cut scenes!!! So..Much..Capacity...On..A.... CD!! EDIT... One more memory... Tying my fingers in knots trying to control G-Police... What were Psygnosis thinking with that control scheme!
Having GTA 3 being the first PS2 game i seen and not being able to comprehend that it was GTA let alone the scope of the game for like 5hrs. Experiencing my first personally owned console with PS3 and Uncharted Drakes Fortune, what an amazing introduction to a new generation, it was like losing my virginity cause i was going straight from SDTV playing ICO to HDTV playing Uncharted, mind was fucking BLOWN!
Having to beat the original Jak and Daxter in one day because I had no memory card.
not comprehending how to take on the Colossus in Shadow of the Colossus, then shitting my pants when i found out i had to climb it, then pissing myself climbing it, then jizzing when i finally defeated it.
I was so young when I played it, so I looked at walk throughs on how to beat them, either way, that game was a masterpiece ^^
I remember trying to beat the Master Onion level in Parappa the Rappa for the 1000th time only to get to the next level and fail even more.
after playing my ps3 on 14inch tv, i switched to 40 inch lcd...and got disappointed:( then i remembered that instead of composite i should go and buy hdmi cable.and oh YEAH!
I loved opening my games on the way home after my mom bought me something. I would just smell of the case and look at the manuel just to see what kind of characters and information it would have so I would be ready to pop that cd in as soon as I got home. I remember playing DMC 3 and Zone of the Enders like 10 times each!
Playing my first game ever doom on ps1 n assault rigs. Then phychic detective what was really messed up https://www.youtube.com/wat...
