PS1 Game Recommendations?

Post by edd_jedi »

I never owned a PS1 when they came out, I had a Saturn and N64 instead. The only games I remember playing back then are Ridge Racer, Destruction Derby, and Fifa 96 at a mates house.

So 25 years late I've just picked one up as it was only a tenner, can anyone recommend some good games? Here's some games I like on the above two systems if anyone can recommend similar:

Shining Force
Street Fighter (although only 2D games as I've never liked the look of 3D fighting games like Tekken)
Zelda
Mario 64
Sonic
Sega Rally
Dragon Quest

Dino Crisis 2 was always one of my favourites and Star Wars Demolition was fun.

Forgot about the Dino Crisis games always fun. Shame they didn't take off like Resident Evil did.

I used to love medal of honor (honour) UNDERGROUND on the PS1 I think that was the one , long time ago but loved the sniper type aspects of single fighting games , not a fan of the all run forward type games you get now :D

95/96 was a long time ago...I remember Tomb Raider being the main game when I bought the PlayStation. Medal of Honour was an absolute gem and I also remember Actua Soccer and Premier Manager. FIFA had Blur Song 2 which was memorable. I spent most of the 90s in pubs and clubs but the PS1 was a cool console to have. They marketed in niche publications like Mixmag etc so you were getting the crossover from student to young professional.
