1. Metal Gear Solid*

Syphon Filter I & II (maybe 3 too, dunno)

Ape Escape

Final Fantasy IX (VII and X sucks *****)

You'd do better with buying PS2 though, games got on average a lot better :lol:

 

 

*even if you dislike later installations in the series this is ace game

 

 

My top picks would propably be:

 

1. Metal Gear Solid

2. Syphon Filter II

3. Tekken 3

"You were almost a Jill Sandwich!”

 

Most hilarious line ever found on videogame - and for entirely wrong reasons :lol:

 

 

edit: If I mention RE's how the heck can I forget Silent Hill?

 

 

GET THAT GAME

So I got my hands on a playstation one for cheap. Could you recommend some games for it? I would prefer RPGs, but all genres are welcome. Also I would like to know what the best two-player games are.

 

Thanks

 

Darque's post is full of great games. I would add:

 

RPG:

Suikoden II

 

Scrolling Shooter:

Strikers 1945

Woah, you people are fast. Thanks for the lists. So are there any co-op or otherwise multiplayer games that would take advantage of the second controller? I could have gotten a PS2, but since I'm not really into console gaming I thought that I'd try to get a little more up to date with some RPG series and other forgotten gems.

 

Also it was really cheap...

The most 2-player fun I had with PS1 was definitely Command & Conquer: Red Alert

 

Other games I enjoyed...

 

X-Com: Enemy Unknown (yes, you can get it on PS1 and it's awesome turn-based goodness)

 

Doom / Doom 2

 

Hexen

 

Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat (fantasy RTS)

X COM?!?!? :thumbsup:

 

No, I have to say no. While that game was awesome the wait time for the actions for the enemy and civillians were a damn killer. In one mission I had to wait 15 minutes for the damn game to finish its turn!

No, that was the console. The PC version I had took only minutes, if that long.

Tekken 3

Silent Hill

Xenogears (the first CD. You can throw the other CDs in the bin, and read a faq for the rest of the story)

Street Fighter Alpha Whatever

 

Don't touch Suikoden with a 300 foot pole.

-Tobal 2

 

-Front Mission 2,

 

best combat presentation and deepest strategic gameplay from all of the Front Mission series. But the bloody games take about 5 minutes to load a saved game since PS1 is a slow beast. On its own, the story and its setting is unique because the protagonist is a South East Asian nationality, a Bangladesh.

Never owned a PS but I remember vividly playing a game ONCE called Bushido Blade. For the 40 or so minutes I played it, I thought at the time, that it was the most RAD game I'd have ever played.

 

Still have fond memories of it. Good times.

Yeah, Bushido Blade was pretty hardcore. No hitpoints or anything, you'd be parrying and suddenly you get sliced on the chest then next thing you know, you're dead.

The only one that rivals it is Xenogears, but as you already said, the 2nd disc is pretty much garbage for that one, while Suikoden II was great all the way through.

 

Tales of Phantasia was good, but didn't realize it was on the playstation as I played it on SNES.

For some arcade action co-op fun I love Jedi Power Battles.

 

Though it has some camera issues which makes the game frustrating for other people (but not me, because I <3 any opportunity to run around with a lightsaber doing cool combos)
