Im not sure if I can come up with ten. Mostly just Square rpg's and Gran Turismo games. Most of the games I liked besides those franchises I played on Saturn instead.

The only games I had for it were Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, and Mega Man. You can't beat that. You just can't.

Dunno about top 10 as I bought it at the end of the lifecycle and got a PS2 right after but I fell in absolute love with Metal Gear Solid. That game was a masterpiece for that system.

I actually can think of very few PSX games I finished. My Playstation was controlled by my two older brothers, and I spent most of my time with that system just watching them play games. I mean, I've tried to go through Crash Bandicoot, FF7, FF9, Spyro, Metal Gear Solid, Symphony of the Night, Tony Hawk 2, and Suikoden, but I never actually finished any of them.

I guess my favorite would be Tekken 3, as that's probably the only real fighting game I've ever gone pretty hardcore into, and the only PSX game I really remember beating (many, many times).

This thread has made me really want to check out Xenogears, though. Any word on some sort of re-release for that game, yet?

I really enjoy reading the lists. So many games that I have played and so many that I've never heard of. Would love to go back on ps1 and give them a try.

I had a younger brother and it's amazed me looking back how much more he got to play even though we tried to keep it equal.

Also looking back it seems kind of futile. There really needed to be more games with 2-player support! A bunch of them could have had some sort of 2P but didn't, or the 2P could have been designed better. This area of gaming seems kind of neglected and as a result not sufficiently evolved.

Also he accidentally overwrote my FF3 SNES save twice. Today I realize if the game's save management was set up differently, all that could have been avoided!
