This review is from: PSone Console (Video Game)
Now, in 2010, many people would simply laugh and think you're joking if they hear you've bought a PS1. The thing is, after all, getting on for 15 years old now, and games being released for it are practically non existant.
However, the PS1 gives ten times the amount of friendly entertainment than anything else on the market - seriously. It's the single most fun thing to play on with your mates in the universe. Sure, the graphics are blocky, the technology antiquated and it sounds like your old cassette player you threw away five years ago, but the huge mountain of games you can get for it are the sort of games you can play again and again, and they never get old. The controllers are simple and slim which can sometimes make you feel as if it's more natural to play with the pad on the left as opposed to the analogue sticks on dualshock controllers. The actual style of gameplay is addictive and fun, and the games can be very challenging - don't underestimate the quality of gameplay and think it'll be a walk in the park. It isn't. Games are just as demanding on the PS1 as modern games consoles, and it keeps willing you on to continue playing.
If you don't have the money for a PS2 or 3, then I implore you: Buy a PS1. In my opinion, it's better than the other two, and you won't ever tire of it.
