hey friends

having been an xbox man for years, i just got my first ps3 tonight and am blown away by the titles available on PSN. So many games that i never got the chance to play through, like RE2, vagrant story, and parasite eve. with so many newer ps3 exclusives to catch up on as well, i'm wondering which of these classics are absolute musts whose greatness still shines through after all these years. Thanks for the input!

I thought Vagrant Story was great. Kinda hard to get into, but really cool when you do. If you haven't, I suggest you all play it.

Me and my buddy grabbed Metal Gear Solid for PS1 on the PSN and it still holds up pretty well.

Crash Team Racing, the only cart racer you'll ever need.

Pick up Silent Hill.

Soul Reaver, Xenogears, Dino Crisis. Should probably get those. Allow me to suggest you don't pick up Syphon Filter. That game has aged terribly. I can't speak for the sequels, but the first one is no good.

If your in to final fantasy those are there, or if you like jrpgs. People keep saying to play ffix after you played a couple final fantasy's but ffix was my second ff that I played and I still think it is the best ff game.

@IBurningStar: SF: Omega Strain on PS2 is equally as bad.

All of this, right down to the second FF and best FF.

huge ff fan. played through VI and onwards (until XII anyways, but we won't get into that here!) and dabbled in the preceding ones. i think V would be my next adventure. hopefully someone else heeds these recommendations, because they are stellar games.

Chrono Trigger

My favorites PSone classics that I've purchased from the PSstore have been Dino Crisis 2 and Star Wars: Dark Forces. Their gameplay holds up really well and they're games you can pick up and play in short fun bursts or get really into and play for hours.

Jumping Flash! - which have sadly been pretty much forgotten.

It was a 3D First-Person Platformer before Mario 64, and it is a pretty good game, it should really get more credit for creating a 3D world than Super Mario 64 should.

Suikoden is on PSN, too! (Suikoden 2 sadly still is nowhere to be seen...)

Also, check out Alundra (heavily inspired by the early Zelda games)
