20 years of PlayStation: the Ridge Racer revolution - Digital Foundry revisits the PS1 game

"December 3rd, 1994 - Sony launches the original PlayStation in Japan, bringing with it seismic shift in the nature of console gaming. The 2D era of sprites and bitmap art was coming to an end, with polygon-driven 3D the new standard in state-of-the-art visuals. The Sega Saturn launched a couple of weeks ahead of Sony's debut console, but it was the PlayStation that set the standard for technological innovation in this new era.

That is actually in the game, that's why he said it that way... but I guess you're to young to know that.

You lost the bet. I played the very first Ridge Racer game on the first 32 bit Arcade machine when you were on dipers. Can't take a joke, huh?

MK24ever2423d ago

I can take a funny joke, not one trying to make fun of an internet Meme which was made based on ignorance. And what makes you think I was that young in 1993? Anyway, if I misjudged your intent with that comment I'm sorry for that, but with so many trolls on here sometimes it's hard to differentiate jokes from trolling.

Just don't take things too serious. That works for me. And that wasn't even a try for a joke. It was just a memory that everyone shares, at least the ones who follows the Sony brand. ;)

The music of Ridge Racer 1-5 still beats the scores from the later games though!

the space invader loading screen was great in that game, complete it all to unlock all the cars and the special black car. those were the days, no micro transactions to buy a faster car in those days.

please bandai-namco. bring these classics back with online multiplayer for psn and xbox live. the newer games are utter crap.

Tapani2424d ago

Damn! I completed this game 100% once. I got all the cars, did all the crazy challenges to unlock every last one of them. The Space invader thing, everything.

I just gotto say it: THOSE WERE THE DAYS!!! :))
