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!
One of the “coolest” shows back then for me (I’m a bit of a nerd, so forgive me. Haha.) was Captain Planet. He comes alive through the use of the rings of 5 kids who care about the planet. The rings were given by Gaia, she’s like the mother nature or something (but the name actually came from Greek mythology).
Anyhoo, the contrabidas who, aside from the usual contrabida hulabaloos (stealing/kidnapping/etc), are also somewhat obssessed with ruining the earth (pollution/poaching/etc).
What’s funny though is that, Captain Planet fights the pollution but its also what makes him weak. He needs the help of the 5 kids to save him whenever he gets into contact with pollution. Thinking about it now, the show was actually teaching the kids (that’s us!) that in order to get something done right, people like us need to help too and not just rely on some superhero! Though I don’t think it actually it made any difference, some things (the bad ones pa) are still there. Hmm. Anywaaaay, I really liked the ending song of the show also! Nakaka-LSS din, just like the one from Denver the Last Dinosaur.
My youngest brother watched only 2 movies in the nineties: it was either Power Rangers or the Mighty Ducks trilogy. I didn’t mind, honestly because I enjoyed watching the pin-up boys of Mighty Ducks 1, 2, & 3 rally on the ice. The funny boys were Fulton Reed and Dean Portman (AKA, the Bash Brothers). Poor Adam Banks was always picked on by bullies from D1-D3. I liked the character of Julie “the Cat” Gaffney because she exemplified Girl Power!
Oh, yeah, I won’t deny it any longer. While my brother was watching the movies (one after another), I was there with him, dreaming of ice, hockey sticks and hockey pucks.
Hey guys! Here’s a treat for everyone feeling down lately. Always remember you’ve got friends by your side to help you through tough times. I know I’ve got mine and I’m truly thankful!
Here’s a music video from the movie “Now and Then” with the song “Connected”
Before the playstation, nintendo, xbox..we had the family computer. It was just the arrow keys and the buttons a and b. The games were in a cassette looking container.
My favorite game back then was battle city. It was a tank game. The players had to destroy the enemy tanks and prevent them from shooting the eagle.There are some flashing enemy tanks which carried power ups. My favorite was the star, it changes the look of your tank and you can shoot faster.
Whats your favorite family computer game? 🙂
Who can ever forget this romantic part of Casper The Movie? It was the most “kilig” part of the movie because this was the time Casper turned into Devon Sawa (who was so cute by the way) and he danced with Kat (played by Christina Ricci. Watch this to reminisce about that cute romantic moment. Love is in the air!
Did someone just say Mr. Boombastic? Here’s that 90’s commercial (it’s so cute, reminds me of Gumby).
