Todd Misura of FTG: In September 1995, video games changed forever. The release of the PlayStation was the biggest kick in the pants the home console market had since Nintendo took over a decade prior. The PlayStation was the first well-built and designed CD-ROM based console and was able to outperform anything on the market. The Atari Jaguar and similar CD-ROM based consoles were hitting the markets in the early 90’s and failed on various levels to be best sellers. Nintendo had only themselves to blame for being the weaker system after it passed on Sony’s CD add-on for the Super Nintendo. Don’t get me wrong, the N64 had some beautiful and awesome games on it, but it wasn’t my system of choice. The Playstation was king in my house for years and deservedly so.
