Let’s start with the logo of PlayStation. It is time to start blogging again after a short break. Why we’re at it I might just say: “Happy New Year”! It’s the first post of the year 2024. We are going to talk about Sony PlayStation and especially the logo of it.
I started to admire how the logo looks. It forms the letters “P” and “S” that, of course, stand for “PlayStation”: This particular picture is of the smaller console named PSOne. It is my only PS1 that I currently have. I also have PS2 but it isn’t working currently. Of course, you can use emulatorsa and I have also Duck Station on my PC for these PS1 needs.
Where do we continue? We can admire the long list of games, I think there are several thousands of them, the cool looks of the controller and its superb controllability or the amazing graphics. It was back then the coolest gaming console that delivered us games like Metal Gear Solid and Gran Turismo.
Later some more powerful consoles have taken the place of PS1 as the number one console but it still gives me a nice and warm feeling when I boot up a game or another inside this system. The design is in every way amazing. I mean, do you recall the intro that the console gives when you start it? There is the logo, once again, and this unseparable sound or a piece of music and then you are told which area the console is from (is it Europe or America or some other region).
Playing with PS1 was like listening to rock music. It was for many the introduction to 3D capable graphics and also to sound. It could deliver CD quality audio. The controller was the most advenced thing in the field at the time. Some have done this better later but PS1 was the first. You might say that DreamCast is the best console ever but that’s just like comparing rock music to jazz – everyone has their own preference.
PlayStation had at first a standard controller. It was later updated to DualShock that had tumble effect and also two thums that made controlling the happenings and interacting with the game more comfortable. As I said many have built on after PS1 was dominant. Few have come close to what PS1 gave to us gamers.
I alreaday mentioned some games. Here’s a list of some of my favorites: Crash Bandicoot, Spyro The Dragon, Spider-Man, Colin McRae Rally, Legacy of Kain – Soul Reaver, Abe’s Oddysee, Fear Effect, Final Fantasy VII and many more. You can find a better listing from Google or Bing or Yahoo. You can even ask about it from some sort of a AI tool. We are living the year 2024 you know!
What I also like about PS1 is that the games weren’t, with some exceptions like FFVII, that long. I remember playing almost every game I had to completion. I have to mention also Tony Hawks Pro Skater here since I almost forgot it already. Am I too excited while I am writing this. It might be so.
I encourage you to do your research on this topic and take your facts even further. I think we had a very interesting and also inspiring topic here to discuss about. It was the first of the year but there are still many more posts coming to this blog this year and even after that. So, stay tuned and keep enjoying your games!
