the PS1 was what I considered my first console. It was the first gaming system that I truly OWNED, and used to its absolute fullest. The GameStop I got it from already had a PS2 on display before its release behind glass at the counter, but I didn’t even care. I had my PS1, and all I even had to play for a while was X-Men vs. Street Fighter. But then I got Crash 2, Crash 3, CTR, Final Fantasy VII, VIII, Metal Gear, a GameShark, etc. There are too many good memories.
I will never forget this. Way back, me and my dad were at Fry’s and we’re walking down the CD aisles. For some absolutely incredible reason, he picks up the OST to the South Park movie, and then he goes hey I heard this was nice for kids and buys it for me. LMAO. I was like a third grader at the time, and I had only ever seen maybe two episodes of South Park ever. I didn’t wanna say anything and I just rolled with it. I told my friends at school what happened, and one of them just HAD to have it. Apparently he was some kinda 3rd grade South Park die hard. He’s like, dude I’ll trade you 10 PS1 games for that. ???SURE??? I did it without any hesitation. Some of the games were stinkers, but that is in fact how I obtained Final Fantasy VII, and how my view of gaming changed completely. Thanks dad.
