The PlayStation 2 Has Been Out for a DECADE
One quick confession, though: I never owned a PS2. No, seriously. Back in the Dark Ages (pre-2001 or so) I was such a stalwart Nintendo fanboy that I was sure I could get Shigeru Miyamoto to come to my Legend of Zelda fan club meeting. So of course, the only thing I could possibly allow in my house was a Nintendo Gamecube. And yet, it seemed as though every friend I had that was even marginally aware of videogames owned several PlayStation 2’s. You couldn’t escape it. It’s become a staple of a gamer’s upbringing, and today, it turns ten.
So go finish your seventh playthrough of Shadow of the Colossus, go finish traversing Tidus’s Sphere Grid, or go crawl silently through the jungles of Russia. Celebrate how ever you’d like, just take some time to recognize what this anniversary means to the gaming world.
