When the Playstation 2 was released I was in high school and a Nintendo fanboy to the core. Before the days of going online and having knowledge of the latest and greatest happenings in the video game industry me and my friends had to rely on video game magazines to stay up to date with what was going on. I remember clearly the buzz that surrounded the Playstation 2 launch and how breathtakingly awesome the graphics were to me back then.
