Nardio Want List

 

 

The retro console I’ve been waiting for. 

 

This…

O my fucking god this….

The second, the very second, I found out about this I immediately went to pre-order it.

The original Playstation was the released around the time of when gaming evolved for me. I was able to buy my own consoles. I was able to buy my own games. I was buying all the old Nintendo games and Sega games I wanted and then, then, I stepped into the world of Panasonic 3DO, then Dreamcast and finally, Playstation…

I cannot overstate how cutting edge and insane the Playstation was. 

The games rivaled the cheap PC games I was accustomed to. 3D games became the norm and it pushed me to view the gaming world in new ways. The games went from the lighthearted Crash series to the grown-up seeming Tomb Raider, to the dark and violent Twisted Metal games and then weird with PaRappa the Rapper. The Playstation was not known for one game, it was known for all of the games.

I spent many a day and night lost in the digital world of gaming. Be it grinding away in Final Fantasy 8, to trying not to suck in the plethora of fighting games, to getting constantly spanked in the Twisted Metal games.

I was never able to own a Playstation when it was in its prime. I do remember having fond memories of visiting friends houses to play. It wasn’t until a decade later that I got my first PS1 and I played the hell out of it.

Being able to get this little console in December is going to be a huge productivity problem for me. But one that I will face with sweaty palms and a smile on my face.

Check out the trailer below:
