I remember buying the playstation on launch day with Ridgeracer and Wipeout. Although ridge racer only had one track I spent hours on that game trying to beat my lap records and I still play it sometimes to this day.

Who else took the disc cover off their Playstation so you could watch the disc spin? I used a glob of clay to hold the button down that allowed it to do that...what did you use?

I'll never forget Battle Arena Toshiden and 2xtreme.

Does anyone remember when gaming magazines used to come with game demo discs inside?

I do, and I played the hell out of that metal gear solid demo over and over.

I loved getting the demo discs in the mail from sony when you registered your playstation via mail, I got a bunch of fun memories from those discs.
