I've been wanting some new games lately, not in particular, just new stuff to play, and I've been browsing a bit more in the used PS1 section at FuncoLand. I spotted No One Can Stop Mr. Domino and it seems like I heard good things about that in the past, but it's been forever. Aside from that game in particular, I'm just looking for some good PS1 stuff I missed the first time around... anybody have any suggestions?

If you have a mutlitap and a bunch of friends, I really enjoyed Micro Machines V3. Though I'm sure you have it Castlevania Symphony of the Night kicked all kinds of ass.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is probably the best PSX game made.

If you can find it, Tecmo's Deception (the original) was unique as anything I've ever seen. The basic gist is that you're the evil owner of a castle and your job is to set traps to kill off the heros that come to the castle to kill you. Not something you see everyday...

If it's fighting, Tobal No. 1 was quite good. Bloody Roar is alot of fun too.

And if you've never played it, Twisted Metal 2 is great.

Deception 1, 2 _and_ 3 are classic cheesy-fun titles. (I'm partial to 2 and 3 myself.)

Poy Poy is pure fun -- four-player mayhem where you throw rocks, logs and bombs at other players in a closed environment. (This may be hard to find, though.)

Can't go wrong with Mr. Driller.

Final Fantasy Tactics is a Greatest Hits title now. You've probably played this already, but if not, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? (No knowledge of the "main" FF series is required, in case you're FF-phobic like me.) Ogre Battle and Tactics Ogre are similar strategy-wargame titles, as is Saiyuki.

Felony 11-79 is a short, but fun driving game with missions and a damage meter. An oldie but goodie. Motor Toon Grand Prix is another (very early) driving game with powerups and a unique look.

I still think both Jumping Flash! games rock. Get the second one, as they're very similar in design.

Intelligent Qube and Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo are awesome, but very hard to find for cheap...

Ghost In The Shell, Buster Bros. Collection, the NAMCO Museum series, the Tenchus and the original Wild Arms also come to mind at the moment.

- Final Fantasy Chronicles gets you Chrono Trigger, which IMHO is the best game ever. It also comes with Final Fantasy 4, which is also a good game (and the whole package costs around 50 bucks Canadian). If you haven't played either of these, GET THIS NOW.
- Chrono Cross, a very nice game.
- Final Fantasy Antholigies, which has FF 5 and 6, both classics.
- Metal Gear Solid.
- Castlevania SoN is awesome too.

Let's not forget the Lunar games, or Arc the Lad Collection. Or, if you want an RPG that'll REALLY eat your time away, there's Star Ocean 2.

Also, I recently saw the three PS1 Grand Theft Auto games in one collection for thirty bucks.

Oh, man! I LOVE the Tenchu series! I can't wait for Tenchu 3 to come out (which will be very soon)!

I just got Star Ocean: The Second Story over the weekend used for $14.99. If you see this anywhere and are into RPGs at all, don't hesitate to buy it. It's by Enix and Tri-Ace, who make some of the best RPGs out there.

Ghost in the Shell is another gem. Even a few years ago when I got it this game was already cheap and I have played it over and over again without getting sick of it. It just has really really fun gameplay.

Final Fantasy Tactics and especially Brigandine are really amazing games if you like strategy RPGs. Brigandine also has a really interesting distinctive feel with its music, gameplay, and especially its character designs.

I don't know if it's just bad luck, but my Tenchu (the first one) doesn't work in my PS2. It's too bad because I'm too impatient to actually get to the gameplay on Tenchu 2.



Your analogy is similar to:

"They already have cars that you can drive, why not blenders?"
"I can already write with my hands, why not my pancreas?"
"They already have beef that I can eat, why not granite?"

-- my new favorite quote from Slashdot comments.

That's odd. The only PS1 game I've heard of that has serious PS2 issues is Chocobo's Dungeon 2.

Star Ocean: The Second Story is _the_ definitive RPG for the PlayStation. Better than the Final Fantasies, better than the Suikodens, better than Chrono Cross, better than Wild Arms, better than Vagrant Story. (Yeah, yeah, Lunar and Chrono Trigger, but they're Sega CD and SNES games at heart.)

The combat system is awesome and makes even routine battles interesting, the Item Creation/Skills system is innovative as hell and should be in every RPG, and the storyline is involving and has plenty of replay value (not only can you play the game over from a different main character's perspective, but the character-recruitment limit will have you going back to find out what those you passed up can do). I think only Final Fantasy Tactics and Monster Rancher 2 made me burn more hours on my PS1, and that's saying something.

There are *some* PS1 titles that don't work 100% on the PS2. I'm sure there's a list out there, the only one I've encountered myself is FF5 on Final Fantasy Anthologies. About 25% of the time when I go to the save screen it gets kinda fugly for lack of a better term. The game doesn't freeze or anything it's jsut that the graphics turn to gibberish on the menu screen. After exiting in and out to the world map a few tiems it works fine.

I've had that happen in FFV on a regular PlayStation as well. It's a game issue, not a system issue.

Ah. I just remember FF Anthologies being listed as one of the games with "issues" when the PS2 first came out. I assumed that was what they were reffering to.

Xenogears if you can find it, Chrono Cross, or Worms: World Party.
