PlayStation 2 turns nine today, we’re feeling old

Recommended Videos

Sony has pinged us to remind of us of our own mortality, and to tell us that the PlayStation 2 is nine-years-old. 

That’s right, the system made its North American debut on October 26, and for me, it marked my first DVD player. I remember going to my local EB Games, bringing back the unit to my college dorm room, and popping in SSX (remember those blue-bottom CD-based discs?) for the first time. It was glorious. 

Unfortunately, I don’t think I bought another PS2 game for at least another year after I got the system at launch. Instead, I happily played my Dreamcast, waiting for something to happen on Sony’s console. And then it did. Big time. I’m not going to attempt to list all of the incredible games and franchises that the PS2 gave birth to… but I’m not going to stop you from telling us your best PS2 memories.

So, go for it!
