Yes because games looked & played like Forza 3 & Gran Turismo 5 back in the day.

These were the some of the best arcade days last HURRAH's.

At the time it was absolutely incredible and to me the time my brothers and I turned on our imported playstation for the first time and saw this is probably my personal biggest moment in gaming. It was such a leap at the time. Not so much the image quality but the fact that it moved at a constant and smooth 30 fps. Im 30 and I seriously doubt the writer is old enough to appreciate what this game did when it became available in late 1994. GT was 3 years away. Consider this. The best pc at the time was perhaps a 66mhz pentium or a 486 dx2 or dx4. Graphics cards or 3d accelerators werent there. It cost £1500 for a powerful pc that could run decent graphics and the playstation (and even the saturn with virtua fighter) destroyed it. I doubt there will ever be anything to make as big an impact again. For a game it was also supper fun. Its a landmark in gaming and I hope some of those Namco and Sega mid nineties arcade classics come to arcade or PSN. Daytona anyone?
