View Full Version : What are some good PSone games?

11-29-2010, 12:08 PM
Decided to start playing PSone games, but only know the really big games. I did play a lot of Tony Hawk and Twisted Metal, but my family and friends (and ex) primarily played the party machine known as the Nintendo 64.

I recently picked up Spider-Man, the first two Spyros, and Metal Gear Solid. I don't really like RPGs unless they're quirky like the Mario Ones (or just vastly different than Final Fantasy), but I'm open to any game recommendations of any genre.

ok................... GO!

ISS Pro Evolution 2, Smackdown 2, Tenchu, Reso 1/2/Nemesis, Chase the Express, Newman-Haas Racing (still the most fun I've ever had on a multiplayer racer)

Parasite Eve if you don't mind the most frustrating moment of your life at the end of the game.

Xenogears if you don't mind a slightly boring 20 hours or so before becomes amazing.

Syphon Filter

Gex: Enter the Gecko, might be more fun to play that with a friend though

I know you said you don't like Final Fantasy, but Tactics is "vastly different" from the main Final Fantasy series. And one of the most incredible games ever. It is pretty serious and the storyline is confusing though so it might not be your thing.

Other than what you've listed in your original post, I'd only add Jumping Flash. The PS1 has aged horribly, much worse than the primarily 2D Saturn or N64. Even then, the N64 only really has Nintendos own games holding up.

The first two Oddworld games are amazing.

I have a very small list of PS games to check out, but there really aren't that many. I'm pretty disappointed so far.

Incredible Crisis looks awesome though:

Bought my brother Incredible Crisis when it came out. It is a fun game.

Bish Bashi Special is great. It's tons of minigames. Really crazy and colourful and fun.
Skull Monkeys is fun as well.

Spyro, Driver 2, Medal of Honor, FF7, Syphon Filter, Metal Gear Solid, Gran Turismo 2, FF Tactics, Crash Bandicoot, Silent Hill, Resident Evil 2

And if you have the $400 to shell out, Valkyrie Profile.

Fuck Valkyrie Profile, it isn't that good. I think it's only like $70 now.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Dino Crisis. It was resident evil except with dinosaurs. Really about time for some kind of new dinosaur video game. Would kill for a decent jurassic park/big game hunter title.

You know they rereleased it on the PSP as Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth, right?

Silent Hill.

I started Spider-Man today. It's great, but movement and lack of camera control are annoying.

Gonna check out Fear Effect eventually.

Av ittt, the deck/board graphic designer was the most amazing/revolutionary thing this 13 year old had ever come across in a game.

Fear Effect 2: Retro Helix

"Tomba!" sometimes called "Tombi!". It's a platformer but with RPG elements like quests and level ups. It's insanely rare like Kula World. It's also really very expensive.
Seriously, seen it being sold new for 114 before and used for at least 70. Wish I had still had mine.

MediEval is a good game aswell, btw.
