    My first playstation was the Playstation64 back in the late 90s as a birthday present. I only remember playing a few games
    on the system until I forgot about it then thrown it away. The game I remember the most was Star Wars Pod Racers;I remember playing it all the time.

          I didn't really like the graphics, they were too triangular and dark, a lotta games looked like static on screen

          The N64 was gentler on the eyes by going a more cartoony route

          I really liked Twisted Metal and the Oddworld series

            The first time I played/saw a paly station was about 2 years ago and all I could think was "F**K ME, how can people play with these confusing controllers? I want my mouse and keyboard."
            "What" ain't no country I've ever heard of. They speak English in What?

                I first heard about the original Playstation in an issue of GamePro magazine during the summer of '95 (a month before I entered the fourth grade). Although it looked cool, it didn't hold my interest, compared to the Sega Saturn and (especially) the N64, which came later. But after watching the "movie trailer"-like commercial for FF7 on TV, I REALLY wanted one!

                It wasn't until the summer of 2000 (after graduating from 8th grade) when I finally bought a PS with my birthday money (I would've purchased one sooner, but my mom didn't permit it). Not only did I have enough money to buy the console and a memory card, but I was also able to get one game: "Jackie Chan: Stuntmaster", which was surprisingly fun!

                Not too long after, my mom bought me FF8 (as a late birthday present) and I played it constantly for days and weeks on end - until I got stuck at that dumb bitch, Sorceress Adel at Lunatic Pandora (disc 4). Nevertheless, it still proved to be one of my favorite FF titles of all time, despite its insane difficulty!

                Eventually, I bought FF7 near the end of the summer (two weeks before entering high school) and completed it really fast! Of course, it became another favorite FF title of mine! Since then, I've loved ALL of Sony's PS consoles (including the PSP, I've yet to get a Vita).

                Today, I own an 80gb backwards-compatible PS3 (plays both PS1 and PS2 games), which is hooked up to my new 47" HD-TV. The library of games for the PS3 are excellent, but I especially enjoy the fact that you can purchase and play the original PS CLASSICS (most for $10 or under) from the Playstation Store!

                  Now it wasn't as FPS dominated as the later incarnations, I was never a PlayStation fan. DreamCast was my system that generation!

                    I'm confused. Is this thread just for talking about only the PS1 or can we talk about other Playstation models?

                      I was blown away by Spyro Year of the Dragon it was pretty much the Playstation equivalent of Super Mario 64 but the stronger hardware meant more levels, better graphics and the camera seemed to work better (I still love Super Mario 64 but since it was the first of its kind Insomniac had the advantage of being shown how its done).

                        Playstation64 is confusing me. Like matching an Emu with a spider monkey.

                          I thought it was odd looking as well, the game discs had that black backing and these original game cases....

                          Doc.....are you telling me that this sucker is NUCLEAR?!

                            Oh yeah I forgot about the huge cases. How long were they like that before they started using regular cd cases? By the time I got one in 98 they were on the smaller cases.

                              I still have the big cases. I have the Resident Evil case, Battle Arena Toshinden case, etc.

                                  Well, it was one of my first gaming systems I played with (the others being the Game Boy Color and SNES). So I guess normal.

                                    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.


                                    What about the portables? They were usually composed of games with pure 2D graphics until the DS came out (and it still got a lot of 2D games).

                                      I remember seeing the PlayStation 1 on display at toys R us, one of the demos was ape escape.

                                      At around Christmas of 2000, I got a PSone, and spiderman.

                                      I remember playing the hell out of that game, I still own it today.
