15 years... that's a long time coming.
During the mid 90's, I never expected to own a Sony Plystation. I always thought I'd be sticking with one of the two big names during that period, which were Nintendo and Sega. In fact, The former was supposed to have a partnership with Sony that would bare a CD-Rom based system, but that fell through, and the latter company went solo and created the system that eventually became its own household name and a new gaming force to be reckoned with. That was how the Playstation was born, and I got my first taste of it in '96 with three games that changed my opinion about the console - Ridge Racer, Street Fighter Alpha, and Resident Evil. After playing those games, I craved for some PS Goodness, and eventually I got my own system, which serves me until this very day despite having two successors to its name. Owning all three consoles and a portable gaming handheld has been nothing short of fun and sweet, and I look forward to more exciting possibilities with the system as the years go by. With that said, it's time to celebrate and commemorate... Happy 15 Years, Playstation!
