I don't know about 20, but I know Dragon Quest VIII, FFXII, and Persona 3 are my top 3.

No particular order. Not a huge JRPG guy, but these hit it home for me.

Flawlessmic298d ago

Fairly solid list, would only change a few, I'd put onimusha in there, ico, personally would have vice city.

Then again I'd double up on some series dmc 1, all 3 gtas, both metal gears, all 3 jaks.

Ps2 was just crazily stacked really, every time I think back on it, those were the good days of gaming.

sagapo298d ago

Was thinking the same about Vice City. But yeah, solid list and great era of games!

shinoff2183298d ago

I still think ps1 was better game wise, but im sure thats an age thing depends on what you grew up with to an extent. I feel san andreas is to this day the best gta made. None compare 5 is close imo but just doesnt best it


Ranking the God of War Games

Kratos has been on a rampage, killing Gods in epic battles since 2005. With each release managing to offer high-octane action, I explore each God of War title and rank every adventure from his journey to Olympus to his Norse tales of fatherhood.

I won’t rank Ragnarok just yet, although it is honestly leaving me and my wife blown away…won’t go into details right now, not done as I assume others aren’t either, maybe some of you are, idk haha.

But here’s how I rank them

5. God of War 3
4. God of War Ascension.
3. God of War 1.
2. God of War 2.
1. God of War 2018.

MrNinosan312d ago

My same ranking exactly, with Ragnarök at #1.

ClayRules2012312d ago

Wow, that’s pretty interesting that someone has the same ranking as me haha. So, did you beat Ragnarok? I assume so with you placing it at #1

Flawlessmic312d ago

1. God of war 3
2. God of war 2018
3. God of war 2
4. God of war 1

Haven't played the others but about 30 hrs In to ragnarock now so safe to say if it keeps up it will end up being at the top of my list when I'm done.

CrimsonWing69312d ago

I will say the pacing of the original titles and the epic feel to them I feel is way better than the new one’s. Like, I could recognize and appreciate the praise God of War received, but it bores me to tears except for the pivotal moments.

However, that being said I feel Ragnarok is waaaaay better than 2018. I’m only on Ch. 6, but it’s pretty much rocked my face off from the get-go.

I’m really split between this being my GotY or Elden Ring.

robtion312d ago

I think different games in the series had different strengths but all are great. I liked the original as it was an origin story and the mechanics were fresh. The sequel added smoother gameplay. Three was just so far ahead of it's time graphically it wasn't even funny. Plus great gameplay and bosses and insane gore and nice use of sexy time. The reboot was cool but lost a lot of what I liked about the original trilogy (I don't need my games grown up, just fun). Will wait and see with ragnarok as haven't had time to play it yet.

Should change that headline to: "Old School Titles We Definitely Aren't Going to Get In the New PS Plus Subscription"

roadkillers530d ago

Honestly, I would be surprised to see a lot of the first party titles let alone the third party. If Sony wants to knock it out of the park, add some of these.

BrainSyphoned531d ago

Rising Zan because Pushman is the best voice acted boss in the history of gaming.

Konami RPGs---Ring of Red, Azure Dreams and Suikoden.

Thousand Arms, Ogre Battle, Tactics Ogre, Persona 1, both Persona 2 and Persona 3 from Atlus.
Any of those would make me happy. Ogre Battle and Azure Dreams the happiest.

Knushwood Butt530d ago

Did you see the news about Tactics Ogre Reborn?

Big fan of Tactics Ogre but have it on Vita and Vita TV.

Puty531d ago

I wonder if the ps1 games will have trophies.

Ron_Danger531d ago (Edited 531d ago )

Most likely not… however Sony did patent (a few years ago) a method of adding trophies to ps2 games based on where on the disc information was being read from (basically t detected when it was loading a new level which would trigger the trophy). I’m assuming they used that tech when they started selling ps2 games for PS4.

jznrpg531d ago

There were specific trophies too not just level based if I remember correctly .

Ready4nxtgen531d ago

Parasite eve 1 and 2
Thank you kindly.

CrimsonWing69531d ago

Actually let’s put all Squaresoft PS1 and PS2 games on it. I’d gladly pay for the service for just that.

z2g531d ago (Edited 531d ago )

PlayStation community before:
We don’t buy new consoles to play old games.

PlayStation community now:
Here’s a list of old games we wanna play now that we might be able to on our new consoles

Bathyj531d ago

Actual PlayStation gamers: Old games are important we know because we have more history and heritage in gaming than anyone but Nintendo, but we're not going to yell and boast about it at a consoles launch to gloss over having no games for a year and lacklustre output for a decade. .

There, fixed it for you.

MrNinosan531d ago

I haven't seen anyone from the Playstation Community talk and discuss about games we might get with PS+ Premium. Who do you refer to?
Cause bosslevelgamer ain't the Playstation Community if that's what you thought.

jznrpg530d ago (Edited 530d ago )

Old games are great from PS but MS doesn’t have the library anywhere close . I only kept a small amount of games from Xbox OG and 360 . Magna Carta , Blue Dragon , Lost Remnant , Morrowind , Witcher 2 and Jade Empire (which i didn’t care for much) I have 100s of PS games I kept over the PS1/2 alone that I love I have a large PS3 library too .
The main reason BC isn’t the biggest deal is if your using it because you aren’t releasing new games and your older library isn’t very good .
It’s a nice bonus feature but not a main feature at all . It doesn’t replace new games and MS still hasn’t released much to this day . Sure it’s coming we have heard that for a decade or more but old games dont fill the void especially with the lackluster first party from MS . There’s a reason why you can buy old MS games cheap because there is little demand for them even before gamepass gave them away for a little while . Go try and buy any PS1 game PS2 game your going to spend a ton of $$
