''When I was growing up, my parents weren't really crazy about the whole video game craze. My brothers and I were the last kids on the block to have a Nintendo Entertainment System, and by that point, the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis were about to launch. Because of this, our house was completely untouched by the 16-bit generation. Oh, sure, we played Sega and SNES games at our friends' houses, and the NES in our living room certainly got a lot of love over the years. However, there were times when we felt left out, as if our system was a thing of the past.
However, things all changed in 1995, the year that the first PlayStation launched. I don't even know how, but we somehow convinced our parents to get us one for Christmas, and they delivered. On December 25, 1995, we unwrapped the new system with glee. And it wasn't just the system-it came in a bundle with two brand-new games, NBA Jam Tournament Edition, an entertaining basketball game, and Street Fighter: The Movie. Yes, that's right, a game based on a movie based on a game. The bundle also came with a demo disc for several other PS1 games, including Jumping Flash! and the first WipEout game, which we played as much as if it was a regular game.''
