Good stories and lots of great games.

I don't think it's just Sony but that whole generation was awesome. If it wasn't for all those games, I probably like most of you still wouldn't be playing today

Exactly, Sony were good but many people forget that the Saturn was released before the PSX.

Saturn had the superior hardware, but was harder to code for...a lot harder. Only devs to get most from it, no surprises here were Sega.

Shame really, i have fond memories of both consoles though so its all good.

@caseh-Saturn had much better tech but only REALLY could show it in the 2D realm and wasn't cut out for the(now hideous to look at!)3D games the PS1 was made for. I think it was just a typical Sega oversight-once they wrecked our heads with the Genesis/Megadrive add ons(and Megadrive is STILL the console closest to my heart for it's initial run)they stumbl;ed, though I loved the consoles myself, from disaster to disaster./ CD add ons, the DC and all that. They always had ambition(see Shenmue)but no direction.

Seriously, had Suzuki been at ninty or Son just what would he have managed? It's THAT tye of talent that their mad decisions caused grief to. Bloody Sega!

Favorite PlayStation game:

Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete

I don't think I've ever had a game burn itself into my brain as that one did.

Other games like

Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete
Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VIII
Final Fantasy IX
Digimon World
Digimon World 2
Digimon World 3
Legend of Dragoon
Mega Man X4
Chocobo's Dungeon 2
Crash Bandicoot
Croc: Legend of the Gobbo's
Wild Arms

were amazing as well.

That first Spyro was cool as and if anyone mentions LoD again i will definitely start crying. I always loved Capcom's first two PS Dino Crisis games better than RE as well.

I got into an argument(which everyone else in the world thinks I lost but they're wrong)about which games, ever,were the best movie/comic tie in games and, I know I'll get hate for this but I maintain it's NOT just a guilty pleasure-I miss the Blade games!!

The end boss of the PS1 original was cool and difficult while the PS2 game for the next movie was a great actioner with some great level design for the trademark Glaive and lopping off dancing Vamps heads in the Vamp disco with lock on will always be one of my greatest gaming memories as it came at a time when money was scarce and I only had TS2(amazing game, no argument from anyone and along with future Perfect I think every bit as good as the first to Halo games(which I also love))and a Ratchet apart from it at one time!

anyway, anyone else who remembers the Blade games with anything but total derision has my respect!!

Back OT,though, I don't agree that PS1 games are as good a library as either Snes or PS2 but it's a close run thing and was a time where ideas were allowed to flow a bit more.

All consoles have good games that are still playable but to say playstation means this guy was born in the 90s. Screw fluff story's the guy should name games instead

If it wasn't for PS1 and PS2, a lot of the great franchises we have today would have never existed.

Thanks Sony and all the great devs that made it happened for so many years.

Bring back Syphon Filter, Dino Crisis, Rival Schools, Fighting Force, Gekido, etc. I could name tons more, but damn...PS1 was a way of life.

Best console of all time
