Default Best PSX game?

i know the general consensus would probably be metal gear solid, re 2, castlevania sotn, and the ff series, but the psx had so many games on it that i'm sure everyone has a different opinion.

imo
-mgs
-ff7,8,9
-crash bandicoot 2,3
-twisted metal 2

FFVII and MGS1 are the two most obvious.

Some of my personal favourites. Gran Turismo 2 = G.O.A.T in my opinion. Just godly.

For those who liked Twisted Metal, I recommend Vigilante 8 2nd offense.

Absolutely better than Twisted Metal 1 & 2, plus the retro soundtrack and the absolutely pleasing experience of driving in a huge truck in arizona.

Notables:

Action - MGS
RPG - FFVIII (yeah yeah, I know, but graphically, 8 was soo much better than 7), Xenogears was also nice
Vehicular Combat - Vigilante 8 2nd offense
Driving - Gran Turismo 2
Fighting - Street Fighter Alpha 3 over Tekken 3 by an inch

I can't for the life of me understand how people get into Tomb Raider. The controls are AWFUL. It's practically unplayable.

I finally played Anniversary after they changed the controls, and that's actually a pretty fun game.

yeah certain games just dont age well. it controls like a tank. even playing the original mgs after playing mgs2 made the experience much worse than when playing it for the first time

Hmm I found the controls fine personally, it was the camera view sometimes that got a bit irritating. Like when you jump you haven't a clue where the camera is going to position itself next, so you could end up completely missing your jump target as the camera is panned in on Lara's chest or something!

I felt the same too. At the time, my friend in highschool was hyping and hyping it, so I eventually shelled out for Tomb Raider 2, and I never played past the 2nd level. Just a horrible game, and I never bothered touching another Tomb Raider game after.

Default Re: Best PSX game?

My favorites on PSX(Most of them are Japan-only though):
Bishi Bashi Special
(Collections of crazy, Japanese style button mashing party games)
The FamiRes: Shijou Saikyou no Menu
(Family restaurant management game)
BeatMania series
(Godfather of music games. I still prefer 5 buttons BM over current 7 buttons ones. The earlier versions also has more variety of music genres than current trance-oriented versions too)
Dokapon! Ikari no Tetsuken
(The Game of Life: Japanese RPG Style)
Tokimeki Memorial & Tokimeki Memorial 2
(The epitome of non-hentai dating game)
Fire Pro Wrestling G
(From the series of the best wrestling games ever. Very good storyline mode)
Final Fantasy Tactic
