The PlayStation brand is 25 years old today, as GameCentral celebrates the 10 games that cemented the PS1’s success on the world stage.
He says "Crash Bandicoot’s games were never anywhere near as good as Nintendo or Sega’s best " ...what ????? Crash Bandicoot original trilogy destroyed the Mario 64 (and Sonic) in every possible way...just because all the game critics were Nintnedo fans and more fanatics that time ,Crash wasnt rated 10/10 and didnt have the critical reception deserved Secondly the writer says MGS1 " that its borderline nonsensical ramblings and anime sensibilities were seen as daringly mature" wtf man .....mGS story has philosophical themes in it that you only read in serious books and simultaneously was the perfect mixture of adult story , humor and gameplay still to be matched even by today creations Basically the article is BS (except of the games) just diminishes every PS1 value but still makes a list of legendary games to get the click .....PS1 with its top games that time was the golden peak of videogame history that i m not sure it would be repeated in future,
You may be a bit over doing Crash Bandicoot's greatness. Now MGS series I agree may be one of the most influential franchises ever. MGS3 was doing things 15 years ago, that People are just praising Breath of the Wild for today.
I friggin LOVE the og Crash Bandicoot trilogy, but "destroyed Mario 64 (and Sonic) in every possible way." Is overdoing it. So is saying the were "nowhere near as good as Nintendo and Segas best" they were damn good, very close to and to many arguably as good as, Nintendo and Segas best. They were certainly as iconic at the time though for sure. Couldn't see any Playstation related article or merch without seeing Crash an Lara plastered all over it.
I'd take out Fifa and Ridge Racer, and replace it with Twisted Metal, and Jet Moto... And who could forget SOCOM...
I agree with all except FIFA
Glad to see FF7 sitting at the #1 spot as its the reason i bought a ps1. Its too bad Twisted Metal didnt make the cut. I would probably replace Fifa with Twisted Metal, otherwise great list. Also, on a side note RPG's could have gotten more love like Legend of Dragoon. 🤷♂️ From the article top 10 1. FF7 2. Gran Turismo 3. Metal Gear 4. Ridge Racer 5. Resident Evil 6. Tekken 7. Wipeout 8. Crash Bandicoot 9. Tomb Raider 10. Fifa 96 What a great variety of games with 3 being racers that were all amazing in their own right. Id probably say I loved Ridge Racer and Wipeout from the very beg, where Gran Turismo grew on me eventually with the 2nd iteration. Who in here remembers racing that black car at the end of Ridge Racer? Once you beat that car you felt like the sh!t and you could race with that beast
Crash Bandicoot's original trilogy easily crushes Sonic.With regard to Mario 64, that is certainly up for debate, but even Sonic's best games in the Genesis Era and in the Dreamcast era are not definitively better than Crash Bandicoot. Objectively, Sonic does not surpass Crash Bandicoot; Sonic/Sega fanboys are almost as obnoxious and pigheaded as Xbox fanboys.
You had me in agreeance until your final statement. All fanboys from all platforms have "pigheaded" consumers. However, i do agree Crash is better than Sonic, but mainly because i liked the 3d aspect better than the earlier 2d Sonic games.
Fifa 96? WTF are you on about? A basic sports game has never defined a console. I'd see your case if it were NBA Jam or NFL Blitz but a run of the mill fifa? No, just no
Nba jam was my jam lol. I remember playing as Larry Bird and fire slam dunking 😎. Id even say that mutant football game was better than Fifa 96...
So many great games . Tomb Raider, RE , Dino Crisis, Legend of Dragoon, Legend ofLegaia , Vagrant Story , Ape escape , MGS , Parasite Eve, Twisted Metal, FF789,FF Tactics, Alundra , Silent Hill, Chrono Cross, Tenchu, Spyro, Crash, Suikoden2 , Xenogears and a lot more I’m forgetting . I rented the Japanese PlayStation from a mom and pop shop , miss those days. I will always love the PS and PS1 . I bought every game I heard of. I still love the sound of PS turning on. Oh yeah Wipeout!
Wow you named quite a few i forgot about. They would need a top 20 to fit most of these on the list. Silent Hill scared the shit out of me as a kid and the 2nd was even better, and then it all went to ish. I wish a very talented dev would make a new one and maybe someone like Bluepoint could remake the 1st 2.
Ff7 is number 1 spot, as it should be.
