The PlayStation will be 20 years old in a few weeks. Launched December 3, 1994 in Japan.

So what is your absolute favorite PS1 game?

And for me, it'll always be Ape Escape. Easily one of my favorite platformers of all time. I spent a whole summer playing this with my friends. It's one of the few games I can still pick up each year and replay without ever feeling burnt out or bored, even though I know pretty much the whole game like the back of my hand.

The Playstation's release and popularization lined up perfectly with my transition into adulthood. I was with my fat, older girlfriend living the easy life. Then my best friend, who was her room-mate at the time bought a Playstation.

I had a bitter taste in my mouth from Sega CD and after seeing the 3DO, CDi, and Jaguar I was pretty sure I was too old for video games. I had played Destruction Derby and Twisted Metal the year before that with another friend who worked at Babbage's and I liked Twisted Metal pretty good but then when that other friend got one that Christmas with Resident Evil and Tomb Raider and I was frequently alone with it, or stayed up after I put them to bed I realized that video gaming had finally grown up right along with me.

So that first friend hooked me up with a job at Babbage's and I joined the mall party scene. I met some much hotter girls, got my own place and put in some arcade machines from the good old AAMA auctions and got popular.

The Playstation more than anything else reminds me of that awesome time in my life TM reminds me of being a nerdy virgin. RE and TR were both shockingly good games and remind me of my transitional period. Then the major game that I associate with the height of my awesome 90s lifestyle was FF7.

The most underrated console is definitely the VCS aka Atari 2600.

VCS threads get shit all over here and the ultimate pleb gauge, eBay also shows that people don't find them to be worth shit.

I believe there are a number of reasons for this. Games are more than just the program. The packaging art, manuals and supplemental materials are all integral parts of the experience and that eludes a lot of modern players. Mainly though, the flood of shovelware that brought Atari down to start with in The Crash is STILL stinking up the system's rep. People paying more for a copy of ET that's been buried for 30 years than for a new condition Swordquest trilogy is proof of that.

The VCS went from ruling the fucking world to being a laughing stock. That's about as underrated as you can get.
