Happy 20th Birthday, PlayStation. Looking back to the very beginnings of the brand, we take a look at ten of the finest games to grace the PsOne. Frankly, a roster of ten isn't nearly enough, and there'll be plenty of many people's personal favourites that we won't have been able to fit in here, but hit u up with your thoughts, and your top ten PSOne games of all time in the comments box.
Honourable Mentions: Dino Crisis, Parasite Eve, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy Tactics, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, Chrono Cross, Crash Bandicoot 3
Those race replays were the most jaw-dropping things I'd ever seen. The original GT was a cracking game, but GT 2 ramped things up to a whole new level. With its faithful balancing act finding the sweet spot between simulation and accessibility, Gran Turismo 2 was the closest thing to driving nirvana on the PSOne. It turned everyone who had it into a car nut, with racers swapping tuning specs on memory cards in playgrounds across the land. Oh yeah, and it had over 650 cars unlockable via the awesome gameplay. What do you have to say to that, The Crew?
Tekken 2 was what got me into the series, but Tekken 3 was the true revelation. The storyline that was filled with innumerable betrayals, the huge roster of characters, unlockable dinosaurs, the introduction of Tekken Ball and Tekken Force. I remember being stunned by how much the home consoel version resembled its arcade equivalent. It felt like the future of fighting games. There are arguments to suggest Tag Tournament was a technically better game, but frankly, the series would never be quite as astonishingly brilliant as it was when Tekken 3 ruled the fighting genre.Click here to read more...
