"This month Syphon Filter, a minor classic and cult favorite with action nuts (myself included) turns ten. For me, that's hard to believe. Ten years ago, in February 1999, I was twelve and in the middle of sixth grade at the time. I didn't even own a Playstation yet. I do remember, with great fondness, playing the original Syphon Filter demo at my local Target and enjoying the game a great deal. There were many reasons not to like it."
