Some of us remember the good old days when the first PlayStation hit store fronts and gaming changed from 2D games to the much more powerful and open 3D games of the late 90′s.
Think of the people who remember when their families got their first B&W TV set. Compared to them we're still young enough to pop a wheelie in 250 going the wrong way on the interstate.
Playstation brand : 18 Years Of Dominance
Oh yeah? How did this gen turn out for PS3 competing against the Wii, or even against the 360?
AHHHHH I remember getting my PS1. My life was officially complete once I got Final Fantasy 7. The good old days of being a kid.
Yep, I have similar memories though it was of misbehaving the night we got FF8 and I had to sneak down stairs to play it. Ah, irreplaceable memories.
Clearing out a cupboard a few days back I found my PSone buried at the back. I don't think I have seen it for over 10+ years it was quite emotional! I even had the portable display for it at one point, god knows where that is now :)
Two things have made me feel old today: 1. I overheard someone referring to a 1998 movie as "soooo old". 2. Reading this title and realizing the PSone came out 18 years ago.
Ah 1995 was a good year for me. I got my PlayStation, I went to Disney World Florida and I grew some pubes.
1995 and PS1, the best system ever, changed my life. Here is to getting old and still being a gamer.
Agreed, not many consoles have had such an effect on the entire industry.
Far out it has been 18 years already! I love Sony and can't wait for the PS4 :)
Ahhhh playstation 1, playing Crash Bandicoot and Abes Oddysee as a 6 year old boy. Edit: wtf, every comment has 3 disagrees. Is this some sort tactical stealth disagree task force?
"wtf, every comment has 3 disagrees. Is this some sort tactical stealth disagree task force?" Insecure M$ tools with multi accounts...
Yeah but what is the point. Has nothing to do with MS and nothing bad about MS was mentioned in the article. Silly fans, enjoy the history of gaming. Those that don't learn from the past are doomed to repeat the same mistakes.
or those whom missed on PSX gold days
I like to call those people "Newfags". I can' see how they can hate the good old days over M$'s hypnotic spell...
The TSDTF will agree with no one...NO ONE!!! mwhahaha. In all seriousness though, I remember the first time I saw Playstation 1. It was at a local supermarket, in the video rental section, and I would play Tekken, Crash and Ridge Racer demos non-stop while my parents shopped...It was the closest thing to grocery shopping I ever want to do again.
18 years of nothing but great memories. And there's even better years ahead. Thanks Sony
That video really made me realize that the PlayStation has been there for the most of my life! And then i think of all the fun me and my friends had from high school through college, and just the other day after work we all met up to play GTA...the same group for the most part...it rly has become a cultural part of our lives!! Thanks Sony
18 years huh? Man how time flies, I still remember my first time playing Tekken, Metal Gear Solid and Gran Turismo. Here's hoping for another 18 years of awesome games :)
Try not waste double posts, they can be used as an opportunity to give good advice and tip's to help improve the lives and wellbeing of your fellow gamers. For example: Save money on milk by not reporting your neighbour's death. You can even leave a note for their milkman to bring more expensive items like eggs or potatoes. Cordless phones make ideal mobile phones for agrophobics. Mourners, read the dress code instructions on funeral invitations very carefully. Sombre, whilst being only two letters away from sombrero, is a world apart in tone.
That's some sound advice.
Finally, Playstation is old enough to drink.
Does that mean Sony get to become mature? Not sure I like that idea!
18yrs on and this blokes still living with his parents playing PS in his bedroom??
Wow 18 years time flys when your having fun. I have great memories of Metal Gear Solid, the Resident Evils, Silent Hill and countless others! Thanks sony PS4 Day One!
The only console that truly created a legacy and a name for itself throughout history. I'm so glad Sony didn't change it's name all this years and remain true to it's roots that made it a PLAYSTATION. A console that truly lives up to it's name made 4 games and 4 gamers.
ahh the good old days when I would play jet moto and syphon filter all day.
18 yrs is nothing try going back to pong and battletanks, jeez I am old lol
Bloody hell, 18 years ago.
