Top 10 Psone games

Recommended Posts

No Gran Turismo 2? So much wrongness...

I was a huge fan of that game. Epic!

I also loved R4: Ridge Racer Type 4. I had that weird little Jogcon controller, which was pretty fun to play with.

I also loved Command and Conquer: Red Alert as I played that for hours on a link up with my best mate at sleepovers, back in the day :facepalm:

Wild Arms would be in my top ten excpet I played this right after playing Lufia 2 on the Snes. And it's the same game almost. Bad timing on my behalf.

Ridge Racer:Type 4 is the best Ridge Racer in my opinion and I would love a high def remake.

WipeOut or WipeOut 2097 should be up definately.

Mr Driller took up a lot of time I could of spent playing RPG's. And I don't regret it at all.

And I know this is heresy but I enjoyed Blood Omen:Legacy of Kain more than Snes Zelda. If you play it on a PS2 with fast loading it becomes even better.

And Puzzle Bubble 2 on the PSOne was one game I played for months and months.

Okay. Here goes.

1. Final Fantasy IX

2. Gran Turismo 2

3. Wip3out Special Edition

4. Klonoa

5. Tony Hawks 2

6. Metal Gear Solid

7. Resident Evil 2

8. Grand Theft Auto 2

9. Ridge Racer Type 4

10. Final Fantasy VII

Maybe a touch vehicle heavy, but I reckon that's done.

I've taken into account not just great games then, but great games now that stand the test of time, and have influenced amazing sequels or new generations of genre.

6. Gran Turismo

edit - I never thought about the one program that came out (in two parts) on the PS1 which ultimately influenced my entire direction in life and my job and my university degree in audio and music tech. That program series was Music and the successor Music 2000. Those have to be at the top of my list despte not actually being games themselves. I also completely forgot to add Castlevania SOTN which definitely would be in my top 10 about half way down. That imo is the greatest CV game too so far second to the 4th one on the SNES.

I suppose it's all down to personal choice and based around everyones individual memories of the games they played. Some games such as Grand Turismo's and Ridge Racers, wouldn't be in my top ten list as I wasn't a fan of this sort of thing. Similarly I never got to play Metal Gear Solid in the end and so don't have that same level of affection for it as so many others do.

Ill do my (rough) top ten. Gotta edit this list slightly

1. Music & Music 2000 Added *

2. FFVII

3. FFIX

4. Resident Evil 1 & 2

5. Alundra

6. Suikoden 1 & 2

7. Castlevania SOTN * Added

8. Silent hill

9. Parasites Eve

10. Broken Sword

11. Star Ocean 2

12. Vandal Hearts

It's just off the top of my head but thats the sort of thing i'd go for.

Ive had to place the RE's and the Suikodens together.

I have many fond memories of a lot of games beyond this but it's hard to find the right games for the top 10. Other games I have fond memories of include.

Broken Sword 2 - The Smoking Mirror

Klonoa

Little Ralph - Cool Japanese Arcade Platform Games

Wild Arms

Legend of Legaia

Final Fantasy 8 (not as great as others mainly due to the unorthodox ways of battles and not buying armour etc but good)

Medievil

Doom & Final Doom

Exhumed

Duke Nukem 3D

Clock Tower (not as many people like this but I do)

Breath of Fire 3 and 4

FF Tactics

OMG Legend of Legaia! I loved this back in the day. Had this odd sort of turn based Street Fighter style battle system if I remember correctly.

And a very out of place Dance Dance Revolution style challenge that if you lost your party member would run out of the club crying :wub:

Excellent list, great calls on Parappa (Vib Ribbon isn't as personal), Klonoa and Wild ARMs (because aside from FFVII, it's probably the best RPG of that generation).

- Street Fighter EX+Alpha

I know the point of these threads is that everyone crowds round and states that their favourite games belongs there, but :wub:

Anyways:

  1. Final Fantasy VII
  2. Metal Gear Solid
  3. Parappa the Rapper
  4. Ridge Racer Type 4
  5. Broken Sword
  6. Final Fantasy Tactics
  7. Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2
  8. Resident Evil 2
  9. wild ARMs
  10. Klonoa

The PSone version of Alpha 3 was crap.

Hmm, it may subject to change, but I think my top ten Playstation games are:

1) Resident Evil

2) Spyro The Dragon

3) Silent Hill

4) Resident Evil 3

5) Resident Evil 2

6) Metal Gear Solid

7) Final Fantasy IX

8 ) Kula World

9) Dino Crisis 2

10) Alundra

Resident Evil, Spyro The Dragon and Silent Hill were main favourites because I'd spent hours into these games, and I still enjoy them as ever. What's even better I have all of these on my Playstation 3 at lovely 60hz (legit of course) :o I'm more of Nintendo 64 person, so I didn't play much of Playstation games but I can admit that Playstation has great amount of classics. <3

I'm not sure about the SoA vibe, as I've never played it, but Wild Arms is a highly enjoyable jrpg. There's nothing revolutionary about it, but what it does, it does well. Actually, it's years since I played it but from what I remember, it combines 16-bit-Zeldaesque puzzly bits with Final Fantasyish random battles. And, if I remember rightly, it's quite challenging, particularly the hidden optional dungeon, which is absolutely bastard hard.

Also, it has a line about killing the Queen Mother, which made me LOL.

Not anywhere near as good as Skies of Arcadia but well worth playing if you haven't played Lufia. I have the theme music humming along in my head just thinking about it now!

Also of note with the PSOne. Those retro compilation discs. Not as good value as the PS2 ones that came later but they did provide a legit way to play old arcade games for those that didn't want to mess about with Mame (or those of us who didn't have a PC fast enough back then.)

Picking up William's Arcade Classics and being able to replay Joust in pixel perfect form was amazing back in the day.

I'm surprised to see so many people mention Gran Turismo 2. I mean seriously, would you actually want to sit down play that today?

Has anyone mentioned R-Type Delta yet? Here's mine:

R-Type Delta is a corking game
