I don't have a top 5 in mind right now, but one a my favorite game is "Sheep Raider" / "Sheep, Dog 'n' Wolf" ("Une faim de loup" in french, I don't know why there are two english names).

I really think it's the best looney tunes game on earth, lot of good mechanics and puzzles (and humor, of course)!

EDIT: And don't forget GTA2 ;)

  • Dino Crisis series
  • Silent Hill
  • Tomb Raider series
  • Sentinel Returns
  • NFS Road Challenge (aka High Stakes)
OK I cheated because the Tomb Raider series is 5 games and Dino Crisis 2.

Edit: Can I include a sixth? That'd be Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus.

At first, it was all about Ridge Racer & Tekken, proper arcade at home, amazing. Later on Driver, MGS & Syphon Filter, Wipeout and all the other hits (sans RE). The 3D was intoxicating and I think the only 2D game I had time for back then was Oddworld. Later on got completely addicted to Twisted Metal series, the AI was amazing and made the game immensely replayable. Tenchu was another cult classic. At the time I was still skeptical of JRPGS (CRPG fanboi) and didn't play any until years later.

These days I still love the original 3D gfx, I don't think it "aged badly" at all, in fact I think it has heaps of character because of its fuzzy wonkiness and what the devs managed to do with it all anyway (it's maybe even better than some rather bland PS2 games). For that, playing on a CRT helps immensely because it blends it all together, and looks too raw and jarring on modern panels for me...eg Silent Hill.

But, I have also came back to the-then unloved 2D on PSX, since games such as Castlevania or Lomax are simply jaw-dropping regarding the art. So these are my most played now, plus a few other titles I missed back then: Grandia, Vagrant Story, Einhander, Covert Ops, Parappa.

If we're talking about the sheer number of console exclusives, the PS1 has the most exclusives of any console I can think of. Even more than the NES. The PS1 covers every genre too. 2D/3D platformers, racing games (Arcade, Sim, Kart), RPGs (Action & JRPG), sports, 2D/3D fighting games, strategy, shmups, FPS, FMV, etc.

This is why I think the PS1 is the best console ever. It has the most balanced library ever and has just as many 2D classics as 3D classics. This is where the PS2 falters, lacking great 2D games. Also, the Xbox version of PS2 games were 90% of the time better than the PS2 version. Therefore, I think the PS1 is objectively the best console ever, and don't understand why it's so underrated in the "best console ever" debates.

You will start a console war if you launch the debate of the best console ever :lol:

PS1 is not so underrated. It have a great library and great games. But nowadays, 3D games on playstation are a bit ugly ... gameplay don't age, but 3D graphics does.

For example, I beloved Siphon filter, but when I played it recently on emmulator ... ooops it's ugly and framerate is just from an other age :oops:
Command & conquer was my favorite game, but again, framerate was sometimes 1fps when screen was full ...

But when the PSX core will be stable and palyable, I will enjoy playing back some games

- gran turismo 2
- resident evil series
- Siphon filter
- road rash
- GTA

Some great games here but I just want to see how Diablo runs on the core. Especially with it struggling a bit on ao486.

Ridge Racer, Tekken 3 and Driver (probably).

Both Ridge Racer and Tekken 3 have superior core games at the arcade but both are better gaming experiences on the home format - bonus modes like practice and extended tracks and cars.

The Wipeout games were good but Wipeout Omega Collection on PS4 is the definitive Wipeout experience and I don't think I can go back to janksville.

Die Hard Trilogy is one of the best lightgun games ever and along with Time Crisis and Point Blank, make the PS1 the King of lightgun shooters. If only it had Virtua Cop <sighs wistfully>. Fortunately I have all three, a lightgun and a CRT TV, so I don't need them on MISTer.

I never really got into RPGs on the system and sports games have been improved in subsequent hardware iterations. For me, it's when the PS1 and the game matched perfectly and never really been bettered e.g. Driver.
