Bubble up for you sir!

Yes I agree, when this writer had covered the article I read it and remembered back to those days... A memory that sprung to my mind was when I remember playing Metal Gear Solid 1 for the first time and being blown away by the graphics!!!!

Now they look... not so hot... lol

BootHammer2512d ago that takes me back! I chipped my PS1 so I could play imports and ordered Metal Gear. You can imagine how hard it was to beat when everything was in Japanese, haha. But still I loved it and finished it numerous times.

Wow! Playing Japanese must have made the story hard to follow! lol That is cool though!

I think seeing footprints in the snow was the first thing that made me think... wow... this game is more realistic than any other game ever.... Looking back now with the games and technology we have, small things like that we don't notice now... we expect it!
