PlayStation Classic will be a misnomer if it didn’t include these essential games. With Final Fantasy VII, Ridge Racer 4, Tekken 3, Wild Arms, and Jumping Flash already announced, here's 15 more.
It would be a travesty if it came without MGS & Symphony of the Night, for sure.
It should be the 25 games that best define the PS1 generation. And I say 25 because of the 25th anniversary of the PS1. honestly there are way more but how do you choose which ones make the cut?
Its impossible to boil down the PS1 experience to 25 games. They should have gone with 40-50 at the very least. The best thing they could have done is give it an internet connection and allow people to add games via psn.
YOU NEED A DUALSHOCK TO PLAY METAL GEAR SOLID AND A MEMORY CARD. Psycho Mantis, hello.
Got a feeling ds3 will work via usb.
How about some Dino Crisis? I can see them putting Gran Turismo, Twisted Metal and some of the ones mentioned in this list for sure.
Dino Crisis was an underrated gem of a game. Really diversified the Resi formula.
If rugrats aint in it then Im out
Excellent list! Memory lane!
I'm most excited to see how these games hold up. We haven't really had a classic console with polygonal textures. The NES and SNES hold up well because for the most part, they're 2D or rather, not in a 3D space. A lot of PS One games were the first venture into 3D space for many companies so I'm stoked to see if they still work today.
You’ll riot regardless
Yup Twinfinite is desperate for clicks.
MGS, Silent Hill and Symphony of The Night are essential, for sure.
If this were to come with SotN and MGS, consider me sold 😬
I can’t even fathom the amount of 3rd party licensing issues they’re probably going through to try and get most of good/great games on this dang thing.
Are you brain dead? You need a Dualshock for Metal Gear Solid and a memory card. You won't be seeing Metal Gear unless Sony releases the Dual Shock shortly after as an option.
Metal Gear Solid Castlevania: Symphony of the Night Chrono Cross Wipeout Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee Suikoden II Silent Hill Resident Evil 2 Street Fighter Alpha 3 Tomb Raider 2 Parasite Eve PaRappa the Rapper Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver Final Fantasy Tactics
Man if only your comment would have been up higher but, thanks alot.
Would personally love to see xenon gear and legend of Dragoon but that's just me
Legend of Dragoon!
Legend of Dragoon was certainly considered, really underrated.
Gran Turismo 2 needs to be on it
My guess is next year we will get a PSone classic also with Dual Shock Analog Controller, with games like Ape Escape. Given that it has a PEGI 18 rating in Europe and Aus/NZ its also rated R18 would indicate something like GTA or Resident Evil may be on there. However MGS is also R18 in PEGI...
Hopefully next year, they make PSone classic since I like my dual shock analog stick.
That title just screams "entitlement". 🙄 Pass on reading this one.
I think it's called a joke, mate.
That list is missing Syphon Filter :D
Legend of Dragoon or I will riot 😂
The two most important games got skipped and that is Xenogears and Dino Crisis
Chrono Cross was chosen instead of Xenogears, purely because the third act in Xeno is straight-up unfinished. I really enjoyed Dino Crisis back in the day, but it's not as seminal as Parasite Eve, Silent Hill or Resi.
Needs more Dragoon.
Metal Gear solid, Gran Turismo 1 & 2
Spyro, crash, Tony hawk if it's missing these is not legit
Please RPGs and games with good story, they're the games that people who never owned a PS1 care about.
everbody out here dissing legend of the dragoon smh
IMO these are the 20 games that shaped the OG Playstation experience and should be in this package... Resident Evil Metal Gear Solid Final Fantasy 7 Final Fantasy Tactics Gran Turismo Crash Bandicoot Castlevania SOTN Wipeout Twisted Metal Syphon Filter Tomb Raider Tekken Ridge Racer Bushido Blade Tony Hawk Pro Skater Spyro The Dragon Silent Hill Grand Theft Auto Parappa The Rapper Crash Team Racing
I agree with your list, but I think Twisted Metal 2 should replace the first one. Just my dumb, random opinion...
