Games you would put on the PlayStation Classic


#1

5 of the 20 games have been announced:

Final Fantasy VII
Jumping Flash
Ridge Racer R4
Tekken 3
Wild Arms

I will never fuck with any of these tiny consoles BUT! here’s what I’d fill the rest of the console with:

Breath of Fire 4
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Dino Crisis
Final Fantasy IX
Ghost in the Shell
Grandia
Harmful Park
Kagero: Deception II
King’s Field II
LSD Dream Emulator
MegaMan Legends
Metal Gear Solid
Resident Evil 2
Silent Hill
Tail Concerto

Yes, this is a shameless “favorite PS1 games” megathread!! All serious and joke replies welcome!!

fuck i hope this gets cracked / flashed asap.

edit: actually fuck this. no analog controllers?


#3

This is an interesting thought experiment. Not my favorites but a selection of PS1 games that encapsulate the platonic ideal of popular nostalgia for the system.

Final Fantasy VII
Jumping Flash
Ridge Racer R4
Tekken 3
Wild Arms
Metal Gear Solid
Tomb Raider
Crash Bandicoot 3
Cool Boarders 2
Parappa the Rapper
Silent Hill
Syphon Filter
Gran Turismo 2
Grand Theft Auto (2?London?)
Resident Evil
SF Alpha 3
Soul Reaver
Tomba 2
Ape Escape
Crash Team Racing


#4

I’m trying to think of what should be there more than what I’d like to see there and the one thought that keeps jumping to mind is that it really should have a Twisted Metal game.


#5

XE
NO
GEARS


#6

Monster Rancher 2 :slight_smile:

I assume an analog controller will be an add-on. I’d want a hodgepodge of shit.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2
Front Mission 3
Clock Tower
Ehrgeiz for the dungeon crawler
Rival Schools
Suikoden
Brave Fencer Musashi
Harvest Moon: Back to Nature
Persona 2
Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
Harmful Park

I’d keep R4, that game is rad. Maybe throw a Cool Boarders 2.


#7

tobal no 2


#8

ace combat 3 but like translated copy of the jpn ver

they can tout it as their star fox 2


#9

final fantasy vii
breath of fire iii
breath of fire iv
legend of mana
threads of fate
tony hawk’s pro skater 2
soul blade
psychic force
guilty gear
rival schools (the big starfox 2 “NEW!” title would be a fully translated version of this, for the first time ever)
puchi carat
magical drop f
tenchu stealth assassins
metal gear solid + vr missions
g-darius
dragon valor
tekken 3
klonoa
ridge racer type 4
ehrgeiz

a totally unrealistic list, but still, i tried to keep it a mix of mainstream titles and titles that deserve to be mainstream

#11

Fukken bushido blade


#12

A Spyro trilogy game definitely belongs on there, although the upcoming remaster collection may keep that from happening

(well if it had dual analog anyway)


#13

ff8 or gtfo


#14

I
Want
Vib
Ribbon

Except let it connect to spotify or YouTube instead of putting CDs in the drive.


#15

if the function a classic console is to make exceptional and rare shit available for play on a television with the original controls and everything instead of nostalgia, everyone already said everything except for

wu-tang: shaolin style
star ocean 2


#16

i mean if we’re going unrealistic, put Umihara Kawase Shun on that bad boy


#17

Omega Boost, Einhander


#18

shamefully no-one said wipeout 3 yet


#19

Wonder if Sony are going to let up on their previous policy of not allowing a single byte of these games to be altered from their original releases. Remember this being trouble for a couple of games that had real world brands and logos in them in places.


#20

Megaman Legends/Tron Bonne
MediEvil
Diablo
Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
Driver or Driver 2
Tomb Raider

Dang it doesn’t matter what the other 15 games are they will not satisfy. Sony could just do what everyone already wants Nintendo to do and just announce a dedicated subscription service for their classics library why don’t you just do that Sony instead of doing a mini console jeez.
