We have a heated debate over the PS1 and N64. Which one is better?

I say ps1. Metal gear solid was the 1st game to make me say wow

PS1 is by far the best console from the 2 ....overhyped Supermario,ZeldaOCT and TUrok 2 (the only games that worth smthing on N64) are not enoughto buy a console ...N64 some success was only because SNES procreated hype ...PS1 crushed N64 with ease that time

Dude... you are crazy if you think those were the only games worth playing on n64.

Basically it comes down to this: What sort of games did you prefer? The n64 and ps1 did different things better, not like the xbox and ps comparisons that are made today.

N64 had better local multiplayer games, First Person Shooters, action adventure games, and platformers (in my opinion, Crash and Spyro don't come close to Mario and Banjo).

Ps1 had amazing rpgs (n64 only had paper mario tbh), stealth games, and more survival horror games.

For me, the n64 wins, but I can understand if someone feels differently. I think the systems are hard to compare though.

These games will never gain mainstream success and joy to millions of gamers around the world with out the PlayStation brand.

Even a billion dollar money monster giant like M$ can not eradicate erase 20 years of PlayStation gaming culture and tradition! Never!

Guys be grateful and thankful there is the Sony PlayStation brand. It has done us more gaming goodness than any other because of their dedication to gaming.

Who would disagree with this.

The crazy thing is you named so many games, and I can think of so many more. Really just shows how many games PlayStation really has

Spyro the Dragon
Brave Fencer Musashi
Legend of Dragoon

PlayStation is the undisputed King of Popularizing Phenomenal New Game Titles Every Generation!

Most of those game titles became legitimately popular on PlayStation first before Microsoft and Nintendo cut deals with 3rd party developers and publishers cut deals to steal exclusivity and put them already popular franchises to their own platform!!!
PlayStation is the real innovator.

Ridge Racer

PlayStation library has no equal in history with countless hits.

Ocarina of Time... That multi stage final boss battle with Ganondorf!!! Pure gaming genius by Shigeru-san.

Also the wow factor it had for a Zelda game transitioning from 2-D to 3-D was Nintendo's answer to Square and Sony's Final Fantasy VIII. Fantastic eras of gaming and RPGs.

I miss those days when Sony, Sega and Nintendo were firing shots with one masterpiece game after another. Sega fires up Sonic for Nintendo's Mario, Sony fires up Crash Bandicoot for Sonic and Mario 64. Sony fires up Tenchu for Sega's Shinobi. Sony fires up Crash Team Racing for Mario Kart.

Nowadays companies fire shots by money hatting, stealing exclusives by bribing, paying for parity, paying for what is the "in" thing of the moment, instead of making their own "better game" that maximizes the potential and power of their own hardware system.

I hope those days comeback!
Ocarina of Time will always be remembered as the game who stood up to Final Fantasy VII.

PSX win in quality and quantity by a huge landslide victory.

Miya, that is the most retarded pile I have ever read..... You are saying, many awesome games only made it because it was on PS? Guys, be grateful says you.... Sure... Sega and Nin could have done all these games..... I am not saying PS was not incredible... It was it shook the industry, but your lust for the
PS brand is a little too was because of the awesomeness that was Nin and Sega that got Sony into it. Also, do not forget that many of the greatest games were born on Amiga and ST, a time when real innovation happened....

Not a clue why I laughed at that but I did so bubble for being funny haha.

I was in both camps
n64 : pokemon snap, goldeneye, banjo, conkers, super smash, Mario kart, mystical ninja, mischief makers and Mario 64

Ps1: metal gear, all the ff's, hogs of war, guilty gear, ddragonball fighting game, tomb a, Croc legend of the gobo.

DarkOcelet1462d ago

Mgs 1 , Syphon Filter 1 and 2 , Crash series , Parasite Eve 1 and 2 , Vagrant Story , Chrono Cross , etc etc. Ps1 was a beast.

MasterCornholio1462d ago (Edited 1462d ago )

I really had a fantastic time with both but I liked the PS1 more due to having a much better controller and a more extensive library of games.

I dont mean to offend anyone with this but its just my opinion.

paddy951462d ago

Mario 64, Zelda: Ocarina Of Time & Majora's Mask, Mario kart 64,Smash bros, GoldenEye 007, Banjoe Kazooie, Perfect Dark, Starfox 64, Wave Race64.

Final Fantasy 7-9, Mgs 1, Crash Team Racing, Castlevania, Resident evil series.

for me it comes down to Mario 64/zelda oot vs FF7.

DoctorJones1462d ago

Plus Conkers Bad Fur Day, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, Turok, Paper Mario, Blast Corps, F Zero PilotWings, etc.

God it had a load of great games.
