A Tribute To Syphon Filter’s Taser

A Tribute To Syphon Filter’s Taser

I say ‘tribute’. It’s more ‘a minute and a half of people being set on fire’, which, if you ever played the original, was one of gaming’s greatest guilty pleasures.

I think I played the original Syphon Filter demo more than some complete games on PS1. The taser initially seemed a bit pointless as a non-lethal option. That is until you realised holding down the button eventually set people on fire. Then it was all taser, all the time. This video brings back memories. Mainly a mixture of guilt and confusion.
