    First disc based console I had (and many of us I imagine) with 3D graphics,it was 'one' of the first consoles to truly break out of 2D gaming.
    This really felt next gen back then.

    My best memory of the PS1 was when i beat my first game, Rugrats Search For Reptar. It was so cool when I finally beat the game because the storyline was really fun for me.

    My best memory playing the PS1 was without a doubt playing Tomb Raider 2. It wasn't just the game itself but more specifically, the Venice level. For whatever reason, as a young kid it blew my mind that I was driving a speedboat through Venice in what had been a platformed up until this point. Thinking back now, it was probably the beginning of games branching out into more diverse levels and not sticking to a single genre.

    I remember my amazement when seeing my friend play through Tomb Raider for the first time. My most prominent memories, however, was first learning to play Tekken on it and also playing 2 players with my buddies in a Counterstrike-esque battle in Syphon Filter. And lastly, playing DDR on a dance pad at home for the first time ever.

    The best moment for me was actually the moment I laid my hands on the console itself. It was the first 3D game console I've ever bought so you can imagine the excitement I had. I remember the first game I played was Fighting Force with my brother. It was unforgettable because the game blew me away back then.

    The first three Tomb Raider games, GTA series, Wipeout, and seeing what the icon was when saving the game on those memory cards.

    Same as KMJ except for Wipeout, replace that with RE or Crash. PS went on to such greatness after PS1, funny that Nintendo would drop it.

    My best memory was playing games without a memory card and trying to get as much gameplay I could in. I was so happy when I got my memory card.

    I did that when I first got my console. Told my mom immediately that I needed a memory card.

    I made sure my mom knew that I needed a memory card with it and she remembered for PS2.

    My mom was on top of it for PS2 when she bought my brother's. I bought my own memory cards for PSX and PS2.

    At least we don't have to worry about them now. Well there's the issue of Vita's storage setup, but overall: nothing to worry about.

    That's true, I couldn't imagine memory cards now and days.

    I know it's kind of a cliche, but the best memory was probably when I played Final Fantasy 7. It was a huge game for the time. I would definitely say that it's not the best RPG or game on the system but it was definitely the most impressive when it came out. It also opened the doors for a lot of games that came after it.

    The best thing that I remember about playing the PlayStation 1 is spending quality time with my friends and family. You can't really beat that. I definitely had some good times with the PlayStation 1.

    Seconded! Considering what we were playing at the turn of the 90's to this was about the biggest leap forward in gaming I've ever seen. I have a countless number of memories playing Tomb Raider 2. It still remains one of my all-time favourites and one of three, perhaps four games that I played over and over again as a child. I bet good money I could still find my way around two thirds (plus) of the game now, including secrets, off the top of my head and it's been years since I've played it.

    Do you recall the 'Floating Islands' level? It used to mildly scare me. It was such a sinister, dark level and so different compared to the others.

    Me and my best friend, who lived a matter of two minutes walk down the road, used to play this and the original Tomb Raider most weekend afternoons. We used to switch between Tomb Raider and the first few Resident Evil games which I also hold in similar high calibre.

    I've never experienced this sort of enjoyment in gaming before or since if I have to be honest.

    The first game I played was Resident Evil. I think I was 10 years old and my step dad had it. This was right before we moved in to his place and really the first time I started gaming.

    good memories.

    One of my favorite moments is when I bought Gran Turismo and quickly mastered the "sim" like nature of the game. None of my friends could beat me because they didn't know how to use brakes in a racing game. Once they started practicing I still couldn't lose because at that point I was mastering cornering through the apex and gassing at just the right time to get max speed out of the turn. A GT and Forza lover was born. Bring on GT7!!!!!!

    I played Tomb Raider on mine as well and I really had a hard time putting the game and the controller down. Probably some of the best fun I had with games was when I was using this console.
