I personally would trade...
"crash bandicoot" for "tomb raider"
"twisted metal" for "gran tourismo"

*Turismo not Tourismo

and yes, agreed. Both Tomb Raider and gran Turismo were more important, at least saleswise for the original Playstation.

Agreed, Gran Turismo is out right revolutionary for the genre. Its a very, very important title in gaming history. GT is a blueprint on how to do sim racers, we didn't have much examples of such things then, they paved the way for many, many racers.

Yeah i was a little hesitant about the spelling but i believe its not a real word anyways. Was under the assumption that it simply means touring anyways.

For me it was:

Oddworld Abe's Oddysee and Exoddus
Metal Gear Solid
Final Fantasy VII
Crash Bandicoot
Bugs Bunny Lost in Time


My favorite games on PS1 :)

Crash was the icon for Sony back in the day. But I can't go wrong with Tomb raider. They should've said the top 10 games

5 is small. Think about trying to pick 5 for PS2..

Hoffmann1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )


Twisted Metal
Resident Evil
Crash Bandicoot
Final Fantasy VII
Metal Gear Solid

Thats a good list, but mine is the Pax Bisonica of important Playstation Games Lists.

Street Fighter: The Movie
Street Fighter Alpha
Street Fighter [email protected]
Street Fighter Collection
Pocket Fighter

Street Fighter Alpha 2+3
Street Fighter EX2+
Marvel Super Heroes Vs. Street Fighter EX Edition.

I would throw one of the Tekken games in too.

SaveMeJebus1188d ago

I had a choice of ether PS1 or Virtual Boy for my birthday back in the day, and I picked V.B. Wrong Choice

That's because you ask the wrong person to save you.

The 5 most important PS2 games?

Grand Theft Auto III
Gran Turismo 4
Final Fantasy X
Kingdom Hearts
God of War

those are not my favourite PS2 games but I guess saleswise they were quite important for the console, especially God of War and GTA III

DVAcme1188d ago

@Hoffman: Replace Kingdom Hearts with Metal Gear Solid 2 and I'll agree 100 percent with your list. I mean, come on, MGS2 was such a big deal that an entire other game sold well solely based on it having a demo of it.

DVAcme1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

Twisted Metal's great, but the launch window's BIG game was TEKKEN.

Edit: Let me elaborate: Tekken was the game that not only showcased how faithful to the arcade games on the PS1 could be, it also established the PS1 could IMPROVE over the arcade. Not only that, it was able to replicate the arcade experience at a MUCH lower price range than, say, the Neo Geo. During that generation, the PS1 was THE system for 3D fighting games, and games like Soul Blade, Tekken 3, Street Fighter EX+A and Rival Schools were loaded with features that the arcade couldn't replicate. I place the death of arcades squarely on the shoulders of the success of Tekken on the PS1.

Being 3D was a huge deal back then. Fighting games were very popular too. People forget the legacy that Tekken was.
