Micheal Prince Writes:
"This is the second part of a four-part series that will look at how I became the nutball, Sony fanboy, obsessive gamer I am. As you read this, if you have similar thoughts or your own stories please add them to the comments, click here to read part 1 of this series.
Back to consoles...the SNES and Genesis days were great. My brother and I played the hell out of so many games like Breath of Fire 2, Star Fox, Shining Force 1 & 2, Chrono Trigger, ShadowRun, Final Fantasy 3 (6), Streets of Rage 2, and many more.
Many people have said that the PS2 was the greatest console of all time and I have to agree. It is still the most successful console in the history of the video game industry. Here we are eight years later and it still has some life. Even while the PS3 was ramped up and launched we had great games coming out for the PS2 like Yakuza 2, Persona 3 and 4, Odin Sphere, The Red Star, Rogue Galaxy, and many others. It was the perfect mix of hardware, amazing software, phenomenal 3rd party support and great marketing.
It was a great time to be a gamer, but all of life is in flux and things were about to change in both my life and gaming technology."
