Ps1 demo discs, Ps2 demo discs and even Ps3 has demo discs !

Those were the DAYS ! I remember only getting the Portuguese official PlayStation magazine only to get the demos . I kept those magazines even today ! It's super funny to read them now ! Like The Getaway being announced, A boss guide for FFX, Metal Gear Solid 2 walkthrough.

The cheat books were brilliant as well. I remember there being a cheat code for crash bandicoot which allowed you to play a demo of crash racers!!!

I was just playing a ton of my old OPM demo disc, both PS1 and PS2, yesterday. Good times. Behind the scenes, cool moves and the PS2 save downloads sections. I remember constantly playing Tomba and Einhander on an old PS Underground demo I had when I firs got my PS1. I miss those times.

I remember getting a couple in those magazine, also remember my mom paying like $7 for those jam packs demo discs, glad we get demo free now. Those discs got me into the disgaea, dynasty warriors series.

I still have tons of PS1 demo discs. From the Jam Packs to the discs that came with OPM, even the Pizza Hut discs. I never got rid of them. I still remember being a kid and going crazy when I got a new demo disc. Demo discs actually made me buy more games.

A huge part of my childhood was playing demo discs!
I couldn't afford to buy full games so ended up playing the same demos over and over again. Had a heck of a lot of fun though!

The t rex blew me away, and the mantaray was hypnotic. Back when we used to buy magazines for demos and to get our information.
