17 Things Anyone Who Owned A PS1 Will Remember

8MB memory was just never enough.

3. Or going to the extreme by leaving the Playstation on overnight until you completed the game.

Remember having a PlayStation but no memory card and leaving the game on all night til u beat it?

4. Learning how to drive on games like Grand Theft Auto, Driver, and even Crash Team Racing.

Sony Computer Entertainment

If nothing else, Crash Bandicoot taught us to avoid all crates marked TNT and Nitro – a valuable lesson most driving instructors fail to mention.


7. Feeling no guilt as your friend was forced to play on the crappy spare controller you had reserved for player two.

Why would anyone waste money buying an official controller when you could get a really uncomfortable and badly designed one for a quarter of the price?

8. Having that one friend who got a Dreamcast and insisted it was better than a Playstation.


If you're one of the few people who remember that being the Dreamcast start up screen, congratulations – I guess years of playing on an inferior console has finally paid off.


13. Or failing that, giving it a little jiggle.

The struggle was real.

16. The controller getting awkwardly tangled to the point where you were forced to sit inches away from the console.

I love it when the PlayStation controller wires get all tangled together and it takes about 1000 years to untangle themπŸ˜„πŸ˜“
