[Reliving the Party] PS1

Not necessarily late, but because I recently discovered the joys of playing PS1 games on my PSP (via the PS3 of course) through wifi I want to pick up some games from yonder to play when I'm on lunch or something at work.

I generally know what's good and what-have-you from the era, but at the moment I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed because the library is HUGE. The three games I own right now (and just tested) are Silhouette Mirage (excellent Treasure game), Ogre Battle, and Castlevania: SOTN.

This thread isn't just for this purpose. It's also to relive the glory days of the Playstation.

I'm thinking about finding a copy of MGS1 (or stealing it from ShimSham next time I'm home), and while FF7 does seem tempting, I'm not too sure if it will do well portable.

    Soul Blade

    It will teach you to want the Soul Calibur series to return to it's routes.

    Edit: and if you haven't played Chrono Trigger, get that too.

    I had so much fun with Crash 1 and 2 and CTR. Crash 3... not to much, and I never played any of the others. But Crash 1 and 2 are so fucking good. They're Donkey Kong Country in 3D.

    Wow, looking back, I can't believe the PS1 was $300 - $350 at launch. Thirteen years later and now handhelds are many times more powerful.

    Abe Oddysee might be hard to see on a PSP screen but I'd bet a 2D fighter would work well. Street Fighter Alpha 3, maybe? KoF '95?

    Holy shit.

    I thought I had some idea of the games to be mentioned, but my limited memory really fucked me.

    Now I want to find and play all these games again. Dammit.

    Oh shit, the Die Hard Trilogy. I remember those games. They were awesome, especially the third game. I loved just driving around running people over, and then using the wipers to clear away the blood on the windshield. :)

    Upon more testing, action games will be more suited for local play (ie, in the bedroom on my local wifi while the wife reads) because there is a slight lag when playing via internet. However, I have just given myself a huge RPG library where timing isn't so important.

    I'm going to be in trouble some day soon.

    How about the old shit like Loaded? That game is still a blast for simple, no minded fun.

    Don't forget - both Lunars were ported to the PS1. And while Lunar: Silver Star on the Sega CD is better than Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete on the PS1, that's like saying 10 diamonds are better than 9.

    Also, Thunder Force V is on the PSX. And it kicks so much ass, just like all Thunder Force games kick ass.

    When I was younger I never had the cash available to buy Lunar: SSSC, but I rented that thing EVERY FUCKING WEEKEND. Even after I beat it, I was renting that game just to play through again. Holy shit, this is the game I am getting. Like, now.

    Edit: wow, there are a bunch of assholes charging like, 80 bucks.

    Places rented Working Designs games? O_o

    That said, the sequel has to be played also.

    I wish I could recommend Elemental Gearbolt, but that game has to be played with a lightgun.

    Not just because it's better, but because it's impossible to beat otherwise.

    My local Blockbuster had it and every time you rented it they placed a 20 dollar hold on your credit card (in this case my parent's credit card because I was ~15) because they rented you the hardbound book with it.

    Yeah that was the game with the rock, paper, scissor type combat system (maybe it was more high, medium, low), but either way it was cool.

    Hell fucking yes it was. I was never really enamored with the PS2, but the PSX was golden. It really earned the top spot, it was so great. Easily in the top 5 consoles of all time, IMO.

    I unlocked the bathing scene after powerleveling for about 10 hours just so I could barely scrape by with those fucking hard ass monsters. The girl bathing scene. The guy one was basically given to you. So gay.

    Also, I got all the bromides. That was kind of fun.

    It would have been interesting to see how many 100% OCD people would have worked to get the guy bathing scene if it was just as hard as getting the girl one.

    All it involved in the original was finding a bar of soap and the right spring(they were separated a good distance away from each other, if memory serves).

    It wasn't animated or anything though, just a still.

    To kill the quote tree...

    In the remake you had to battle your way through a ridiculously difficult forest. The reward was a still image that might have scrolled slightly with some laughter in the background like girls presumably do when they bathe with each other with lather covering all the right places.

    Same feeling as I have. Not sure why I loved the PSX so much more than PS2. My PSX library is my 3rd largest library behind Mega Drive an Master System libraries (though most of them were second hand this decade, whilst most PSX games were bought on release. Bah make it second largest then :P

    Short list of some of my highlights from the PlayStation that could work well portably:

    Racing:
    WipeOut XL/2097*
    Destruction Derby 2 or RAW

    RPG:
    Alundra
    Final Fantasy Anthology/6/Chrono Trigger

    Shooter:
    G-Police/G-Police 2**
    R-Type Delta

    Platform:
    Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee/Exoddus
    Medievil


    *Though last time I played it I had difficulty seeing, as the graphics had not aged well for such a fast game

    **Quite rare and probably too dark for the small screen. Fucking fantastic games though. Wish they'd re imagine it on the PS3
