    Demo Disc 1 -right in the feels! Didn't it also have a clip for "The Net" starring Sandra Bullock?

    I wonder if we'll ever feel that sense of wonder again or was it just because it was a truly massive jump in tech from the 16bit consoles and we were all at a different time of our lives then.

    Oh man, I loved the PS1 demo disks, played hell out of the GTA demo. The mag was decent too, quite thick plus a demo disk for around £5 per month. I had a paper round and got £10 per week, when the Official PlayStation Mag came out each month I spent 50% of that weeks wage before the paper shop owner even paid me. Good times, simpler times and like others have said, I really appreciated games back then as it was a real luxury for me and my brother. Heck, I had to wait until Christmas one year to get a memory card so I could actually save a game :D

    Unlikely to feel the same way about anything as you did as a kid but the jump to VR has been pretty special for me.

    I found some old demo PS1 demo discs recently but sold the actual PS1 a long time ago, stuck them on eBay and was surprised to see how quickly they sold.
