Omg, I loved the Digimon World series! (1 and 2 and 3, I think 4 was released on the PS2 and I didn't like it as much as the first three :/) Also, the first three Spyro games. Spyro the Dragon was actually one of the first games I ever played, along with DK64 for the N64. /nostalgia

Final fantasy IX easily.
Even though it was originally made for the Sega then remade to PSX, the Langrisser series, God those games are sooo good.

Spyro the Dragon for me, I loved the music and it's such a classic.

The Crash Bandicoot and Tekken games also entertained me a lot.

Need I say more? Crash Team Racing is definitely the best playstation game I have played. The Spyro the Dragon series comes in a close second.

Next project: Pokemon Dark Nebula?

Digimon World 3 was sooooo good. Everything about that game was just so awesome, especially the pseudo-isometric graphical style. Being in the digital world, having those card battles, exploring the cities... man, that was so much fun.

+1 props to you. 8) Good choice.

I fail to see why this game has never had any sequels, prequels(there is a lot of potential for a LoD prequel) or even spin-offs.
YES! I was going to post this!! :D Legend of Dragoon is soooo underrated. I loved that game so much. The music and the storyline were so emotional, I still think back to it sometimes. It was revolutionary at the time, and it was SO LONG. Four disks. Haha.

Dino Crisis to gets a mention aswell. Still have my copy of both these games but my ps1 has unfortunately broken so I can't play them. but game was great.
Digimon World 1 and 3 were excellent. Do you remember numbe 2? XD; It was so god-awful. Let's pretend it never happened, lol.

Yes, definitely the first 3 Spyro games! The 3rd was best! I also loved Digimon World 3! Ahh, all those good times spent with my Beelzemon and Imperialdramon PM :D

But also, I think Vagrant Story was an absolutely amazing game! One of the best RPGs I've ever played, because there was just so much to do. The gameplay was unique, and the story was so enthralling.

Ooh. What a difficult question. I'm going to have to go with Suikoden 2, but Persona 2 creeps in pretty close afterward. They're both such different games that it's difficult to really choose one over the other.

I'm stuck between Grandia and Digimon World 1... I think I'll go with Digimon World 1 just because I've replayed it countless times so it has to be pretty good. xD It's an amazing game with so many different aspects to it and a great story, plus raising your partner is so much fun and guessing what they'll turn in to is very entertaining, especially when it surprises you and becomes an ultimate. x] Grandia is amazing too as I've posted many times before, but Digimon World 1 is simply an unforgeable game and I love playing it so much. <3

You guys all have such good taste.

But I'm going to have to go with Spyro the Dragon, I could play it over and over for countless hours. And back when I was still a youngen I would spend literally all day imagining scenarios in Gnasty's loot after you got 100%

Next up I would say Digimon world 1, I never did complete the chart and collected all the different species, but hey I had fun trying.
When I got my first Ultimate, I was so so so excited, Pheonixmon if I remember correctly. Finished the storyline with that one.

And 3rd I think probably the Crash Bandicoot trilogy. I loved them, I just did.
Also Crash Bash was a very good multiplayer game, I would play for hours with my mates, only two player and swap every time you lose because we couldn't connect 4 controllers unfortunately.

For me, 1st place would have to go to the Alundra series, I absolutely loved those games! Maybe because I am such a Zelda fan, that I love Alundra 1 and 2 the most out of all the other games.

The Spyro the dragons series comes in at a close second, especially the first game, I used to play it for hours on end. That little dragon was such a cheeky little guy.

And Grandia is tied with FFIX in third place. At of all the PS1 games I play, I often find my self coming back to these, and playing the day away ;p .

There are too many! D:

PS1 was/still is the greatest thing in console gaming for me. It brings back so much of my childhood whenever I play it. Yu-Gi-Oh Forbidden Memories was a great game, as was Crash Bash, Digimon World and any of the Spyro games. Need for Speed Hot Pursuit was definitely one of my favourites as well. Perhaps my favourite of them all was the Tekken series, homg wow. Spent so many hours on that game.

It's a tie between Crash Bandicoot, Pyro the Dragon, Bugs Life Game and Metal Gear. Good times...and may I add that the Playstation 1 intro sound was creepy!

Oh those are awesome games as well, Tekken and Metalgear Solid. I could play those for ever.
Tekken 3 was what I grew up with I'd battle my uncles and end up losing most of the time but it was such a good bonding experience haha.

Hmm, best PS1 game... That's impossible. There's too many fantastic titles on there to pick just one.

As far as RPGs go... there were countless good ones, but the Final Fantasy series was undoubtedly the most popular. So I'll go with the best of the PS1 FF games, Final Fantasy IX.

Then of course there was Metal Gear Solid, which was something of a revelation to a lot of gamers. Stealth gameplay? And executed so damn well? Holy ****ing ****.

And you can't forget the Gran Turismo series. Gran Turismo 2 in particular being the king of PS1 racing games.

Also to a lesser degree, Silent Hill. But IMHO Silent Hill was just alright. It's Silent Hill's PS2 sequels that are the truly special ones.

I'll try not to count ports (which would exclude Lunar and Tactics Ogre), but Chrono Cross is probably my first choice. I love everything about that game; the music is legenday, story is great, and the gameplay is pretty fun too. FFIX, Tales of Destiny, and Xenogears are up there too. Sadly, I never played the console while it was relevant.

The ps one is one of my least played systems, and I haven't complete any game yet on it. From what I've played, Final Fantasy IX and Rayman 2 are my picks.

Any of the Crash Bandicoot games. I'd loving playing the first game by myself, and sometimes when I'd have friends or family over I'd play Crash Bash with them.

If I had to pick just one...I'd say Medieval. The second game was good as well, but I loved the original. The fantastic voice acting, the humour, the soundtrack, the character of Sir Dan...I was very glad for a PSP port when it came out.

Final Fantasy Tactics.
Enough Said.

The sole reason I have a PSX emulator on my PC is to play that game.

I loved the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro series', but ultimately the best game ever was Harvest Moon: Back To Nature. The hours - no, days - I wasted on that game are dumbfounding. It's just so unbelievably addictive.
