Sony PlayStation

Year released: 1994

Just Blaze: "Up until the PlayStation, video games were largely considered for kids; something to shut to the kids up. The Sony PlayStation, and the title that came with it, was probably the first time that I saw titles that were more mature. Sony had great design for a system, invested well, and they marketed very well. I think part of the success of their marketing was that it wasn't just for kids. Nintendo had Mario, while Sony had titles like Resident Evil where people were getting shot up. There was blood, there was reality, it was a more mature level of gaming."
