As a former Nintendo fanboy, it just wowed me. At first I was probably like many gamers, "What the hell is this PlayStation with it's stupid looking controller." I was 100% going to get a N64, probably Ultra64 at the time. But, I 2ent over to a friend's house and his nephew was there with his PS1. I kinda scoffed at first. But then I actually tried it. The controller felt so good. Then, I played Tekken, Alien Trilogy, and some helicopter game. Watching the cinematics blew me away. As did playing those fun games with that controller. Ever since that day, I've been a PS fan.
