    i wanted one bad, I loved Resident Evil, FF7, Twisted Metal and many more i found the psx had a lot more quality games than the n64 (especially sports games) but n64 did have Goldeneye (what a legendary game), Mario Kart and Smash Bros. so I love both systems and was lucky enough that my friends and i had a good mix of owning the 2 different systems so when we got together we could usually always play both or choose which one we felt like playing

      The reason for that is twofold;
      1) The n64 had even crappier 3d graphics than the early disc based systems.
      2) The n64 was nothing but friggin FPS games. Every commercial, every rack in the store, nothing but FPS games.

      This is why I dropped out of gaming when the ps1/saturn/n64 hit the scene. Crappy 3d graphics instead of good 2d ones, longass load times for 2 of the 3 systems, and an absolute plague of FPS games.

          I remember buying my first Playstation just to get a better version of Primal Rage. The SNES and Genesis versions sucked! I remember how awesome it looked in that opening FMV where it felt like you were walking through bushes and trees.

            "Meh, I like my game cartridges better." Yep, that was my reaction. The loading times turned me off from it. My cousin had a PSX. I stuck with my N64, but don't get me wrong...if I was at his place, I'd still play on it.

              Supposedly cds are cheaper to produce.... but new games are still always like $60... Also Soul Blade has the best into ever and controlable endings!

                I remember being most impressed with the realistic motion of everything(Tekken and Grand Turismo) compare to other systems. I was a big PC gamer at the time, and while the graphics weren't better, everything was certainly smoother and we were able to play on our big screen.

                  It felt too advanced for me. I hated the concept of memory cards, even though the Nintendo 64 used them a little.

                    the time that i even knew about the playstation's existence was when crash bandicoot was clashing with pizza hut (around 1998-ish)

                    and i say this to you absolute n64 fans, if you can't take loading, then you're just impatient. that is all.

                    that, and the playstation had a HUGE library of rpg's. all the n64 had was quest 64 (very shitty btw) and paper mario

                      When i was 14 i laid eyes on it at one of my local malls with a Resident Evil promo to it, i knew i had to have it and got it for christmas with RE and been playing it since.

                        My brother and I got one for Christmas in 96 (my cousins got the N64). I thought it was for computer games honestly. We played Crash Bandicoot and Coolboarders for a long time before we started getting more games (and believe me we had a LOT of games). The best part was my best friend at the time, who generally got everything he wanted...didn't have one.

                        We upgraded to the PS2 the Easter after they came out. And I almost shit my pants. Literally. They were a hot commodity and it was the best surprise we had in a long time. Aaahh the good times when the economy wasn't quite in the toilet.

My favorite games were Final Fantasy VII, Resident Evil 2, Metal Gear Solid, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, and Thunder Force V: Perfect System.

                                    I read about it in a magazine (EGM I think.) and thought oh great another CD based game system that's Over priced Has crummy cutscenes. ( I remember a pic with some squaggally Dog head) poor animation and is just a rippoff of 3do and CDI with an SNES controller... after I saw some commercials and read more about it My mind started to wonder that and the Fact Sega was pimpin' out their Saturn and Thanks to Daytona USA Virtua Fighter and Virtua Cop. I was leaning to Hedgehog land!! then the price 399.00 US Dollars?!!?!? at that time is TOO much and Sega's was $499!!! well I had the Overpriced part right! now comes 1996 and I see Battle arena to shin den, Ridge racer, Tekken, and Warhawk as well as some demos with Vids for AIR Comabt!! yes!! I was already geared up for the system . so from a poor misconception to Hype that payed off! 1996 was the year of the 32 bit CD systems. to really answer your question I was skeptical.. It looked good as it got better but had a poor publicity. but that's how I am with most new systems. Now that I hear about "Nextbox" and PS version/Generation 4 I'm not to keen on going with the Next egn becides I'm already trying to get used with the PS3 I just purchased recently!!

                                      I found out about the PSone in a magazine, either EGM or GameFan, can't remember, but my initial impression was that it would go the same way of other consoles that tried to bring down Nintendo and Sega, of course the total opposite ended up happening. When I finally got my chance to play one the first game I tried out was the original Twisted Metal and I was hooked.

                                        I had high expectations when I first heard about it. The first ever game I played was MK4 and was kinda torn.

                                        On one hand I was impressed with the sound, 3D camera angles and realistic character movement, and on the other I was disappointed by the character design who looked..well... 'empty' and soul-less.
                                        But when it came to Grand Turismo, I thought..Um, this is cool maybe this PlayStation thingy isn't a piece of crap after all.

                                        I finally warmed up to the console (even the Dual-Shock mechanism with I first found irritating) when I played SoulBlade, but I still very much in love with my MegaDrive, but hey.
