Playstation mania!

The PLAYSTATION – it’s every gamer’s dream back in the 90’s (1994 to be exact). It was the birth to 3d graphics and the use of CD-Rs which were both new to ever person. This obliterated the regime of Nintendo and the enemy of the gaming market, Sega Dreamcast.


This successful machine had a successful launch with almost all types of games, including Twisted mental, Warhawk, Ridge Racer, and many more. The machine was widely accepted by the market and continuously was supported by numerous gaming companies such as Konami (Metal Gear Solid franchise), Activision (Vigilante 8 and Tenchu), Namco (Ace Combat and Tekken), Squaresoft (Final Fantasy series), and MANY MORE! Up to now, because of the success of the PlayStation brand, it has expanded its name to better products (PS2, PSP, and PS3).

So, how was your PlayStation experience? What classic games did you play? Share your insights! Comment below.

Here’s a playstation commercial. Crash Bandicoot v.s. Parappa the Rapper. It’s in Jap tho, haha! Look at the guy in the middle, he’s wearing a Playstation machine on his head!

    oh, the classic game console that started games on a cd. yes, it required a lot of loading compared to nintendo but the graphics and gameplay was awesome! plenty of gamers chose the playstation over the nintedno 64 not only becuase of the gameplay but also the cheap fake games you could buy. nintendto did not have any fake games coz it used a cartridge which was hard and expensive to pirate.

    Parappa and Crash Bandicoot were my favorite games! Even if I’m a girl, I’ve finished both games *yabang, yabang*. LOL.

    I used to be so addicted to Bomber Man, Crash Bandicoot & Dance Dance Revolution (w/ matching dance mat)

    Wow! i learned something new! And now there’s ps 2, ps 3 and even that mini ps

    Caratiara! OMG. I am a die-hard fan of Twisted Metal. My PS1 went berserk because I couldn’t stop playing! I’m disappointed though that they didn’t come up with TM in PS2 or PS3.

    Any game that involves cars I really liked! I played Gran Turismo, Circuit Breakers, 3Xtreme Games (there’s roller blading, cycling, and skateboarding races there where you can hit your opponents) and Crash Bandicoot (the racing).

    And…! Tekken 3. I played that game for hours and hours that I got blisters on my hands. I didn’t like Streetfighter for PS1 though. I liked playing Streetfighter in the family computer (diba meron sila dati??)

    You know what else was fun? Dance dance revolution (wink, wink to caratiara)

  • 7. Kevin  |  March 13, 2007 at 3:56 pm

    Tekken! yeah! haha did you guys remember Pepsi man? haha the guy running and you’d have to avoid the stuff in the way? haha fun fun fun

  • 8. caratiara  |  March 13, 2007 at 10:56 pm

    yeah, kidswereus! How about Mario KArt? THat was my favorite, hehe!

  • 9. Vish  |  March 14, 2007 at 6:27 pm

    i was 9 when i finally got this. I’d pray to God every single day that he’d tell my parents to get me one. And finally, after what was a really long time, I finally had one. My first games were powerboat racing, need for speed 2, Crash 2, twisted metal 2. You see! I still remember. And of course, the all-time fav, DDR! That was my morning workout as a kid. heehee… bring back the childhood days please!

    This is so addicting 🙂

  • 11. mars  |  March 14, 2007 at 11:06 pm

    Haha, yeah what about Mario Kart?

    Hmm, isn’t the Super Nintendo more (technically) 90’s than the PS1?

  • 12. kidswereus  |  March 15, 2007 at 12:22 am

    Hey mars. Hmm I’m not all that familiar with Super Nintendo.

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]
  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]
  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
