Now this certainly makes me feel a little on the old side. Today the original Playstation is 20 years old! (In North America. It released in Japan in December 1994). I still remember the day I got it, and my entire video gaming world changed. Being from the era of Pong/Atari (yes, I just aged myself) seeing what Playstation had done with games, and the advancement in technology was nothing short of amazing.
I still have vivid memories of my first time inserting the first disc of Final Fantasy VII and not putting it down for 2 days. Back then, we had seen nothing like it to date. Our eyes feasted and our imaginations danced with delight. It is safe to say the PS1 ushered in a new world of 3D/realistic gaming that has since spawned into the life-like games we know and love today. It’s hard to believe 20 years have gone by, like the blink of an eye. Today we celebrate the birthday of one of the greats. Thanks for everything Sony!
