Need Some Help With PS Classics on PSN

#1 Posted by KaosAngel (14251 posts) -

Serious gaming question that I really do need some help on. 

  • What are the best PSN PS Classic games at the moment?
  • I own every Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, and Resident heads up.  I also don't have the discs anymore.
  • Chances of PS4, NGP, and Android being able to log into PSN so I can FREELY download them again?
What are some of the games you guys bought from there, and are you happy with the purchases?

The Crash Bandicoot games are fucking great. The first one and Warped are especially awesome.

@BulletproofMonk: I played the last one pretty late, I was too old for Crash at the time.  I'll see it and put it on the list.  I got a about 40 bucks on PSN and no PS3 games are on that I want, I could buy PlayStation+ but I'm holding that off until they put in cloud saves.  >.>

Symphony of the Night is up there, that game is AWESOME, and worth playing through again.

Vagrant Story is supposed to be coming out soon.  Buy that.
Castevania: Symphony of the Night
Final Fantasy Tactics (I wasn't sure if you meant outside of the numbered series or not)
Front Mission 3 *
Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver *
Silent Hill *
Spyro games
Street Fighter games
Twisted Metal *
Wild Arms games*
*I thought these were cool when I first played them.  Don't know if they stand the test of time.
I think it's highly unlikely that you won't be able to access the games you buy now on future Playstation hardware.  As long as you hold onto the same PSN account.
I still have most of my PSX collection on disc, so I haven't bought any of these games yet.  I can only speak to the quality of the games, not the service that provides them.
EDIT: And since I see you're considering PS+, I should let you know that Spyro 2 is free right now for members.

@Spoonman671: I got FFT, Vagrant story I own as disc, and SotN I got on the PSP version.  >.> 
Yo, speaking of Wild Arms, never got into them...explain their usefulness.

Silent Hill, Crash Team Racing (!), THPS2, Dino Crisis. Um Jammer Lammy if you're feeling funky. Fuckin Soul Reaver.
But Silent Hill and CTR you should definitely have.

They're JRPGs.  The first one switched from 2D to 3D for battle, which was totally awesome at the time, but probably isn't that impressive anymore.  Dungeon puzzles are a little more elaborate than most RPGs and the second game had some anime cutscenes that looked pretty cool.

Was Wild Arms the game that had like three separate stories. I know one was about a girl training to be a mage but I forgot the other two
