Here you can reminiscence about games you have played in the original PlayStation and stuff.

For me, Metal Gear Solid was the definitive PS game for me.

Playing DUNE on the PS1... oh god the rage and the fun, since i never had this game on PC... RTS games arent playable on consoles. But it were the most memorable times i ever had as a kid <3

Crash Bandicoot 2 is still one of the best platformers (3 had toooooo much gimmicks) and CTR is still the best kart racer.

Even as someone who hates jRPGs, Playstation 1 is still one of my favorite consoles ever and my favorite of the Playstation brand. MGS and Crash are the best.

I used to play a game called Auto Destruct a lot, which was rated M, but all fun games had a high mature rate, right? Anywho, it was pretty fun; it's like the game Twisted Metal, except you go on these missions to destory these bad guys who threaten the world, etc. It was very desructive, and had a variety of weapons for your car!

Another game that I loved was Crash Bandicoot: Warped and Crash Bandicoot Racing. The Crash bandicoot games in general were pretty fun; though I found myself playing Crash Bandicoot Warped a lot. Crash Bandicoot Racing was really fun too, although, I used to suck at Racing games and it got me a real long time to get used to everything, buuuuut, all in all, fun racing game! I'd say try it if you have the opportunity to play it!

Ah yes, and the Spyro games - I forgot the titles, but I played the one with Ripto, Gulp, Crush, etc. those bad guys, and Year of the Dragon, which was great, but, god I used to think it was a tough game.. Ah, how wrong I was years later; I find it pretty easy now, but still fun nonetheless!

This.
My favorite PSX game was definitely Spyro.

Ah, the PlayStation 1. One of my favorite systems.

The game series I played the most was Spyro the Dragon. I remember getting the demo disc of that game, playing the first three stages so many times that it was memorized at that point. When I finally got the game itself, all the changes confused me! But that first Spyro game was also the first game that I ever completed 100%+, even getting the final secret. Those games are top-notch when it comes to platformers.

After that, I remember really wanting the very first Digimon World game. Like really wanting it to the point where I was counting down the days until its release. Finally got it and played it so much. Never beat it, but I kept getting the rest of the Digimon World games. The second one was my favorite, but the third one was a fun RPG.

Speaking of RPGs...Final Fantasy VII. That game. It's just...Final Fantasy VII. I was another fan who loved it and everything about it (until it kept going on and on and Gackt). Very fond memories of those blocky undefined characters who were just so real and interesting.

Playstation 1... My goodness, so much fun.

My most played game was "WWF SmackDown! 2: Know Your Role"; my cousin and I spent HOURS upon HOURS playing the game. 10 second ladder matches, create a wrestler was fun, and the career mode was hilarious with the simulations.

"NHL 98" was fun, and "NHL Championship 2000" was good too. "Tomba!" was another fun one that captivated my imagination as a kid.

Playstation is one of my fave, if not the only one, game console.

I used to play Crash Team Racing on it, and I was having fun exploring the Adventure mode inside. In Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4, I tend to clear the Career Mode even though it's tough. Besides of these, I also played Nascar Rumble, Super Shot Soccer, Let's and Go Eternal Wings (a racing game), Digimon World 2 and 3, Digimon Rumble Arena and 2 Super Sentai games of Gaoranger and Hurricaneger. Boy, I missed those fun times already.

Man, the PS1 was all just about that dope start up sound.

Crash Bash was the one. Also got lots of play time from the Tony Hawks Pro Skater games, was really a Nintendo kid though.

I unfortunately did not own PS1 nor I played anything on emulator. But I do plan to play Persona 1 since PSP version is Japan only.
I do vaguely remember playing old Tekken and old FIFA in my last year of primary school but I'm not sure whether it was on PS1 or PS2 but probably PS1... :D
I would like to try playing on real PS1 again just for the feel but I don't think I will ever find an opportunity :/

My favorite game ever belongs to the PSX, and it is Crash Team Racing. I used to play this for hours and hours. Shame there isn't another game like it.

I loved how the PS2 was backwards compatible with old PS1 games, it made me want to relive all my memories of when I was a very young lassie myself.

My fave games on the PS1 were the good old Crash Bandicoot and Spyro trilogies. The soundtracks to those games are among my fave video game music of all time and it makes me want to hear it all again when I browse through YouTube or something.

While Crash and Spyro made up my PS1 faves, I also loved playing the old Tekken games as well, specifically 2 and 3. Those games were pretty much my childhood.

It wasn't a problem for me because I had old PS1 memory cards stored away.

I remember playing Crash Bandicoot for the first time, I was an extreme noob back in the day because I always get stuck somewhere. Still, it's the music that keeps me entertained lol.

I remember I got Final Fantasy 7 on eBay and was so excited, then I found out I couldn't play it on the PS2 Slim, so I had to go to GameStop and buy a bulky PS2 (which was fine, I prefer that model anyway), but then, I order a PSOne Memory Card, then I couldn't format it or whatever? So I had to actually buy another original Memory Card.

That was the most tasking set of things I had to do to play FF7. But in the end it was worth it. I think my Gold Chocobo speaks for that.
