Retro game opinion piece.
Has to be the PS1 for me. It had FF7, 8, and 9... It had Tenchu 2, Chrono Cross, Soul Reaver, Bushido Blade 1 & 2, Metal Gear Solid, Wild Arms, etc. However, the PS2 came very close with FFX, Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2, MGS 2 & 3, San Andreas, Ace Combat 4 & 5.... Argh, I could keep going here for both of these systems, but they're almost neck and neck. Either way, both of those systems were beyond amazing, and were a good portion of my younger years. Here's hoping the PS4 will be looked back upon with similar fondness. The PS3 is a wonderful system, don't get me wrong. For me personally though, it's just not on the same level as PS1 and PS2.
PS1 for me too. For me it was sort of a revolution in gaming. It felt like more adult orientated gaming. So many fond memories with that system. Crash Bandicoot, Resident Evil games, Dino Crisis, Jet Moto etc etc
PS1 for me too. All of the games mentioned above defined the console, and they were such big steps up from the previous generation. Going from 2D to 3D gaming had such a massive impact on gaming, it changed the way I viewed games forever. And on top of 3D, it had games like final fantasy 7, metal gear solid and gran turismo which completely changed the way I imagined games could be. I saw a whole new depth that gaming could reach that I never saw before. And Sony switched gaming into a platform for adults as well. Titles like WipeOut 2097 with its pulsating soundtrack was just so cool. It was also the first time I saw FMV cut-scenes in games. Which though taken for granted today was just jaw dropping at the time. Games actually had these amazing intros to them now, and each one was an absolute joy to watch. Watching the intro of Gran Turismo 1 and Final Fantasy 7 for the first times were just unforgettable. And let's not forget, it had what is still the best console startup of any PlayStation device http://youtu.be/lXaCGVOqGrQ
Same, PSOne. It came at the perfect time when Nintendo needed a kick in the ass. At the time the system was revolutionary. You could play audio CD's and it had system link which was such a cool concept back then on consoles.
PS2>PS1>PS3 But not by too far. I enjoyed all of them for different reasons. Although I would say the PS1 had the most hits. But I still enjoyed MGS4, Uncharted, Killzone, etc. Uncharted is still by far my most favorite franchise this entire generation.
I cannot pick one unfortunately... all three were amazing. However I think PS4 might top all three. I have a slight feeling they might just call it 'Playstation'... back to its roots. Feb 20th it is.
PS3 was my favorite generation overall. The reason for this is because of games like: - Rainbow Six Vegas 1 - Rainbow Six Vegas 2 - Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 - Call of Duty 4 - Call of Duty: World at War - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - Battlefield: Bad Company - Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - Battlefield: 1943 - Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - Killzone 2 - Killzone 3 - God of War 3 - The Darkness - Grand Theft Auto 4 - Metal Gear Solid 4 - Resistance: Fall of Man - Resistance 2 These were the games that felt new, refreshing and in some cases magical to me this generation. For me, the PS2 generation was all about: - SOCOM: US Navy Seals - SOCOM: US Navy Seals 2 - SOCOM: US Navy Seals 3 - SOCOM: US Navy Seals: Combined Assault - Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm - Medal of Honor: Frontline - Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 - Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 - Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2006 - God of War - God of War 2 - Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty - Metal gear Solid 3: Snake eater - Gran Theft Auto 3 - Gran Theft Auto: Vice City The PS1 days were alot of fun too: - Medal of Honor - Medal of Honor: Underground - Tony Hawk Pro Skater - Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 - WWF Smackdown - Driver - Gran Turismo - Need for Speed
PS1, games like spyro, Crash, Twisted Metal, soul caliber are the games that got me into gaming
My favorit gen was the one running from 1994 to 2013/14
My personal favorite is PS1. I LOVE that system till this day. I still play Tomb Raider, Crash Bandicoot, Abe's Oddworld, Tenchu, Jurassic Park the Lost World, Deathtrap Dungeon. Soul Blade, Gex often. Close second is PS3....PS2 I really don't care for that much to be honest.
PS1 for sure. FF7-9, Chrono Cross, Xenogears, MGS1, Star Ocean: The Second Story, Legend of Dragoon, Castlevania: SOTN (I'm aware it wasn't originally on PS, but it was by far the best version), and so much more. That was the last console with a ton of JRPGs. PS2 had a good amount, but there weren't quite as many high quality ones. So for me, it goes PS1 > PS2 > PS3. I do expect Sony to top it all this time around.
PSOne Gran Turismo Ace Combat Omega Boost Ridge Racer Tenchu Bushido Blade Soul Edge Tekken Toshinden Tobal No.1 Bloody Roar 2 Dead or Alive Resident Evil Silent Hill Castlevania: Symphony of the Night Legend of Dragoon Final Fantasy VII Final Fantasy Tactics Super Robot Wars Alpha Dragon's Quest VII Chrono Cross Xenogears Metal Gear Solid Tomb Raider Armored Core Twisted Metal Dino Crisis Medal of Honor Quake Doom Crash Bandicoot Crash Team Racing Parapa the Rapper Bust A Move Dance Dance Revolution and many many more All excellent games!
DoA started on PS1? Huh I never knew that, interesting. the thing I liked about the PS1 is it forced creativity and originality. No developers really had many established IP at that point. Since then it has been roughly the same but looking better visually. I mean some of those franchises are still going strong after all that time, madness. Not to say PS2 wasn't fantastic. The leap in hardware pretty much revolutionized some games like GTA. New IPs like God of War, Bully and more all started on PS2. I think I had the most fun with the PS1 though, it was simple plug and play goodness. As for PS3, I think it was the weakest generation of the lot. Not bad by any means but not up to standard.
I think need for speed started on ps1 too
I forgot to mention the awesome Guilty Gear Front Mission III Klonoa Syphon Filter Mega Man Legends Tomba Strider 2 Saga Frontier Secret of Mana Samurai Showdown RPG SD Gundam G Generation Macross VFX Mission Advanced VG Assault Suit Leynos 2 Vagrant Story Monster Rancher Digimon Thunder Force V Einhander
PS1 and PS2 for me are neck and neck but PS1 comes out by a sliver of a hair. Those were the golden days for sure. PS3 gen was no failure by any means but nothing beats playing during the innovative/originality stage in a systems lifetime. I expect PS4 to blow us out of the water, Sony has learned their lessons this gen now it's time to deliver.
PS3. Current gen.
I have to said PS1 was the best, so many new games and favorites came to the PS1, but also the first time I felt the console was a let down with the laser upside down to read. I hold up to PS2 and lrd and behold laser read error/ blue screen. PS3 was no diferent, YLOD, ps2 chip faulty and over heating. Sony has the most game of any other consoles, but they bring faulty products to market, all 3 generations had them. I will wait on PS4 until they fix the broken console, cause no doubt in my mind it will be faulty at launch. Only nintendo has introduced great reliable consoles, but as we can see the wiiu suck. For my money sony had the best games, while their consoles has always been poor reliably.
the first one.
Definitely the PlayStation one for me. I loved Resident Evil 1-3, Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill and Crash Bandicoot. Xenogears and Legend of Lagaia also.
It was mine to. I could not get into the ps2 for some reason and the ps3 lost its way with the 3rd party but looking forward to seeing what Sony give us next gen.
Yup Playstation 1 was the best playstation era for me as well. Resident Evil, Loaded, Jet Moto, Ace combat, Tekken, A-Train, Doom, Twisted Metal, Crash Bandicoot Need for Speed, GT, Legacy of Kain etc oh man those were the days. Favorite gaming moments of my life.
PS1 by a mile, it set the mile stone, it showed Nintendo they were not the only kid around, it brought cool to gaming I still have most of my games in brand new condition. Playstation 1 4Life
PSone will always be the king of them all.
PS2 hands down. In my opinion, and I wont play favorites, but it is an EQUAL with the SNES for greatest console of all time. Thousands of games, solid, dependable hardware, and the best controller on earth, Dual Shock 2. Can't ask for much more.
Playstation 2 was incredible . Greatest home console ever made . PS2>PS1>PS3
PS2 was the best for me. I hope PS4 is the best Playstation yet.
I loved the PSOne generation, but if I have to rank them, PS2 > PS3 > PSOne.
I have to say, I don't understand the thought that PS3 isn't the worst of the 3...There was a massive drop in originality, and versatility this gen. Everything revolves around shooters/action-oriented games now...boring. If you like that sort of game, fine. But, don't you want to play something different sometimes? And, can the rest of us have something to play?
It's probably because it started off on such a shaky foot, but in my eyes, they've redeemed themselves and are finishing off this gen, extremely strong.
ps2 hands down
PS2, the platformers and action adventure games.
So hard to pick but if someone had a gun to my head demanding an answer I'd go with PS1. So many good memories of playing with friends, and my brothers. Here's my top 10 PS1 games. 1.metal gear solid 2. Resident evil 2 3. Castlevania symphony of the night. 4. FF7 5. Silent Hill 6. Twisted Metal 2 7. Crash bandicoot 8. Legacy of Cain soul reaver 9. Spyro the dragon 10. Tenchu 2
