PlayStation turns 15 – 15 best PlayStation games of all time

Stuff: The Playstation has seen tens of thousands of titles of every description go on sale since its launch. Many were strictly average, some were utter rubbish, but there were those that were truly exceptional. Here's 15 of the best from the last 15 years.

The story is too old to be commented.

1. No Jak and Daxter or Ratchet?
2. Uncharted 2 is better then Uncharted.
3. MGS4 is one of the best games of all time.
4. I respect GTA 3, but I think San Andreas was way better.
5. Guitar Hero set fire to the who music thing, but it is not even in the top 200 PS titles.

San Andreas should have been on there. CJ remains the most customizable character on gaming consoles and the freedom/variety San Andreas provides is STILL unmatched by any other videogame in history.

LOL, u culd literally take a date to a restuarant in an airplane.

And that's why I continue and will continue to stick with PlayStation as my preferred console. Nobody can be Sony except Sony.

There's some good choices and some terrible choices in this list

PS3Freak3273d ago

This list is inconcistent. Lots of big games, but it is missing lots of them as well. Also includes games like Singstar....

GTA 3 revolutionized the way sandbox games should be made but the best ever GTA in my opinion is San Andreas. Loved the old school hip-hop theme and primarily the customization.

STK0263273d ago

well, it's been an awesome 15 years to be a gamer, let's hope the next 15 will be as good or even better. The playstation family has really grown and continues to do so to this day.

Regarding the list, while some games seem to be missing, while some should not be there in my opinion, it's still a good one. One sad thing though, and I don't know if I'm to blame the list or reality, but there's not a single PSP game there.

Only 1 game down into the list and it was already BS, Guitar Hero. LOL

Then SingStar... LOL

jammy_703273d ago

but i think mgs3 > every metal gear game
crash bandicot 3 was an awesome game!
and san andreas! come on!

Sub4Dis3272d ago

How you make a top 15 PS games and not mention Resident Evil is beyond me.

regarding GTA. i certainly agree that San Andreas was better. but think about the first time you played GTA 3 and the first time you played SA. SA was the better experience, but it didn't catch you off guard if you played 3. 3 was just a whole new genre. I can remember getting baked and just getting lost in that world for hours going on elaborate killing sprees and car chases.

Kurisu3273d ago

I've never played MGS...or ICO...or Shadow of the Colossus! I'm hoping that Sony will create a Collection pack for those, as I've only read good things about them.

xionpunk3273d ago

Hells yeah on the Star Ocean. My first Rpg and still my favorite.

cmrbe3273d ago

Add MGS4. Best game ever!! and we are good.

ThanatosDMC3273d ago

MGS2 was horrible compared to MGS3. MGS2 was all over the place in story and timeline.

sikbeta3273d ago (Edited 3273d ago )

MGS2 was pretty good until you have to play with the whiny little crying blondy b*tchy Raiden in Big Shell Plant, but even after that it wasn't a disappointment like everyone always say

ThanatosDMC3273d ago

That was a major ball buster when not even half way through the game you had to switch the main character to a guy that cries a river every time instead of focusing on the mission at hand to save the hostages and the rig. Also, the fact that Raiden was being treated like a complete idiot as if it was his first time ever to do something in his life was just horribly done.

I hope you played MGS3. It was great. Boss and weapon acquisition just felt right unlike MGS4 in which you practically have all the guns at your feet. I beat Crying Wolf without being spotted by the frogs (i forgot what the ladies were called) and only took three shots to the head to end the boss fight. Compared to The End, that fight was child's play. Gotta love that you actually have to hunt/detect your opponent to kill him.

xionpunk3273d ago (Edited 3273d ago )

Mgs2 was amazing even with Raiden being lame. I personally loved the story and never really understood why people hated it so much. The twists were great and the atmosphere was incredible, and i don't think a game has ever made me go "holy sh1t" in quite the same way (especially when Fortune gets shot).

With that said, MGS3 is probably my favorite. the Boss story is one of the best I've seen in games. Still I love them all, and even loved MGS4's slightly ridiculous ending.

rockleex3273d ago

But the flow of the game was really off.

Plus, the ending felt tacked on because it WAS tacked on.

Kojima was originally planning to include a long final mission where Snake and Raiden had to go and find the Patriots in the Twin Towers.

But 9/11 happened, and thus they had to change the ending.

Hellsvacancy3273d ago

Never new that, thats another reason 2 hate the taliban

15 add 45 is the abysmal failure rate of the xbox 360 in the UK.

15 is the average age and IQ of an xbotter.

15 is the number of glorious years Sony have given the gaming industry.

Lord Kemp raises a glass (large cognac) to your achievements.

Saaking3273d ago (Edited 3273d ago )

lmfao at MS trying to pass off the 360 as the next PS. Yea right!?!? hahahahahahah!!! Only the PS3 deserves that honor.
