A lot of these anniversary posts are fairly cursory, but this one genuinely makes us feel pretty old. Fifteen years ago on this day, Sony gave North America the system that ushered in the modern era of console gaming: the PlayStation. We thought that this might be a fun opportunity to share some of your favorite memories of the Old Gray Play-dy, whether it be the first time you stunned monkeys in Ape Escape, creating carnage in Twisted Metal or shouting "You gotta believe!" along with PaRappa the Rapper.

Happy birthday, big guy. Thanks for everything.
