Games Sometimes, it's good to reminisce. To look back upon what came before us, in order to better understand what lies ahead. Last week, I bought a piece of computing history I missed out on, a piece I've desperately been wanting to have for a long time now. I bought what is most likely the best selling computer of all time.

FF9 was on the PS1, unless I missed a PS2 rerelease. I whole-heartedly agree though. I think perhaps Thom should buy a PS1 as well just to play FF9 ;) Very awesome game


Since the PS2 is backwards compatible, you can play PS1 games just fine on a PS2, you just need a PS1 mem card.

Heck for that matter, you can play it on any PS3 too with a virtual mem card.

Ahh ok. It didn't realise it was backward-compatible. I can fully recommend FF9 then, and also FF7 while we're at it

Yeah, I knew about the PS1 capability on PS3. I've played a few PS1 games already and fully intend to run through FF7 & FF9 again. Ahh, the good memories ;) My friend thinks the past is best left in the past but he's a fool so let's not pay attention to him

I still have my PC copy of FF7, and I'm currently scouting parts to build a circa 1998 computer specifically to play it, Unreal, Quake II, Star Trek Armada II, Thief I and II, and System Shock 2. Each of those games has a special place in my heart, especially FF7 and the Thief series. I have my original copy of Windows 98SE on hand; I'm glad I decided to hang on to that.

I tried with an Athlon-based HP Pavilion but it overheats no matter how much I try to keep it cool. So, I'm currently scouting a PII or PIII based system, preferably a Compaq Deskpro with an AGP slot as I already have two good cards, an nVidia Vanta and a Radeon 7000, to try out.
