Bye bye, baby

#4 - Tomb Raider
Although Lara Croft appeared on other consoles at first, she found her home on Sony's machine. The original game, though now quite antiquated both cosmetically and in its mechanics, is still arguably the most atmospheric of the series. We still remember the first time we stepped out of a crevice and saw an entire underground pyramid, or the moment when a velociraptor came around the corner. So ambitious in its realization that Lara was forced to wear her hair in a bob (The PlayStation couldn't manage her ponytail), it's still an enthralling adventure to experience today.

    PS2 was the first console i owned, though i did play PS1 1st. Funny thing is i actually wanted the ps1 but as i was asking for it my brother told me to get a PS2. Sure enough, a few seconds after he said that a PS2 commercial shows up and i'm like, "never mind mom, i want PS2!!"

    I remember my uncle gave me a PS-one as my first console (that wasn't hand-held). Ever since that day, he would be known to my sister and I as "the cool uncle" of the family.
