    Also, a Crash Bandicoot would have been nice.

    Woah what happened to legends of dragoon
  • sephex - December 6, 2014 5:34 a.m.

    And Xenogears. And Parasite Eve. And Brave Fencer Musashi. And Clock Tower. And Vagrant Story is only 26. I guess I know why today's gaming is shaping up like this.

  • eddie-hoplight - December 3, 2014 10:59 p.m.

    im 16 and just realized how old play station is, when i had my ps1 i loved it! my fav games were Apocalypse i think it was called, Resident Evil, Cabelas big game hunter, and my crash bandicoot games. To this day i still play them except Cabelas, poor game was broken when my little cousin found it :'(

    ninja shadow of darkness ?? earthworm jim 2?? << my 2 fav ps1 games
  • Sombra - December 3, 2014 10:06 a.m.

    Finally! Someone valued FFIX over FFVII and FFVIII. I think FFVII has a poorer history (much less elements involved) and FFVIII characters don't reach you as much as FFIX's do

    I'm surprised Eternal Eyes didn't make the list. Albeit it was in the large list of RPGs, it seemed unique in that the game gave you puppets, which would evolve into allied monsters if you threw certain colored gems at them, and that you could improve their skills with the gems, as well as evolve them. Plus the story actually was quite interesting (heck the title of the game is mentioned in the story).
  • ErenJaeger - December 3, 2014 8:51 a.m.

    Alien Trilogy anyone?
  • Mr.Hahn - December 4, 2014 2:54 a.m.

    Thank you! It was the last time they got Alien games right until Isolation
  • BladedFalcon - December 3, 2014 8:20 a.m.

    So glad to see that even after continuous updates, SotN is still on the top. I repurchased and I am playing trough the Dracula X chronicles game that came out for PSP, in big part because it also included SotN as an unlockable. That game holds up just as perfectly as it did 20 years ago. Which is why as much as I also adore FFT and MGS, they haven't remained nearly as timeless as SotN has. *Sighs* this also makes me yearn for more 2D Castlevania games like that. Even though this indie resurgence has yielded many great metroidvanias, none have the charm, personality, and astounding enemy variety that the 2D Castlevania games have.

    Fear Effect was awesome too, and I still play Hogs Of War and Sheep, Dog & Wolf from time to time :)
  • cptnoremac - December 3, 2014 6:54 a.m.

    Alundra had some challenging puzzles, but a lot of the difficulty was cheap difficulty, like not being able to tell how high or low something is and not being able to use the analog stick. And I actually found the soundtrack to be somewhat grating. Except Kline's Dream; that song is great.

    Where the heck is MDK!?!
  • gamerPL - September 28, 2014 3:26 a.m.

    This ranking suxxx :/ Final fantasy VII should be on 1st place. Tekken 3, FFVIII should be in top 3. MGS i agree. Tomb raider III or IV should be here not 2 :/ FFIX shouldn't find place on this list :/.
  • Not_the_mama - October 17, 2014 1:07 a.m.

    No way. FFIX is certainly the best for PSX. I think that the people that put VII at the top are people who were new to the genre when it game out. Also, VIII is among the worst of the FF series. I mean, it is still Final Fantasy, so it is worth playing, but it cannot hold a candle to the other games on PSX.
  • cptnoremac - December 3, 2014 8:58 a.m.

    Your ranking suxxx. FFVII shouldn't even be in the top 30. There are so many better games on the Playstation that you've never even heard of. Legend of Legaia is a way better RPG. And Tekken 3? PSSSSHHHH. If you want an actual fun fighting game, try Unholy War or Destrega.
  • SniperFumbles - September 25, 2014 10:05 p.m.

    I have to agree with every game @aceoraiz listed and also add Nightmare Creatures and the FIRST Tenchu Stealth Assassins.
