Have you ever wondered what it was like to live in the olden days? PLAY don't just mean, like, last year. They mean long, long ago, in an ancient era before the PlayStation 3 was out – not even in Japan! Back in those days many of the comforts and conveniences that you and PLAY take for granted just didn't exist, and daily gaming life was filled with hardship. PLAY has teamed up with a group of historians, university professors and men with beards to bring you this three-part account of what life might have been like for a PlayStation gamer in the year 1995, which was in the last century, which means it was a hundred years ago. Read it and think about how lucky you really are.
