I finally bought a PlayStation, since I was a Nintendo kid and never had one growing up, and I'm looking for some game recommendations. What are the must owns for the system?
Games I already have/played:
>Parappa the Rapper
>Um Jammer Lammy
>Metal Gear Solid
Small list, as you can see - I really missed out on a whole generation here so I'm excited to see what there is.
Any genre is good, I just want to pick up what I missed out on.
Croc is fun if you like tank controls
RE1-fucking whatever one they have on the PSX
I think persona's on here.
Abe's Oddessy games
fuck if i know man, you know /v/ has a recommended guide for this shit.
Was just about to make a similar thread, hope you don't mind me asking here OP:
What is a good price for a regular system with controller? Is this systems library relativity inexpensive to get into besides things like FF7?
If that's your photo then you might want to pick up a Dualshock first and foremost.
>Rage Racer / Ridge Racer Type 4
>Wipeout XL / Wipeout 3
>Crash 2 / Crash 3
>Crash Team Racing / Crash Bash
>Raiden Project / Raiden DX
>Rollcage Stage II
>Tekken 2 / Tekken 3
>Tobal No 1 / Tobal 2
PS1 has too many quality games, it's up to you to break out of the same old top 25 like Metal Gear Solid and stuff.
I am playing through Final Fantasy Origins right now and it is awesome. I would obviously pick up Final Fantasy 7 as well.
There are so many great games on PSX I'd just look at a best selling games list and give a few ones that look good to you a try.
OP here, I know this isn't a tech support thread, but I might as well ask here rather than making a new thread.
I plugged in my PS1 and the power button just won't cooperate at all. I push it and the light is only on for as long as my finger is on the button and the power turns off as soon as I move my finger. If I were to hold the button down, the game comes on and works fine, but I obviously can't do that if I want to play games.
Does anyone have any idea what I could do?
Not trying to sound hostile or anything, but have you honestly tried googling it? Reason I ask is because old systems like that have a ton of documentation online for all sorts of fixes and troubleshooting techniques. There's also places like
/r/consolerepairthat may be a good place to ask.
>Not trying to sound hostile or anything, but have you honestly tried googling it?
Nah, you don't sound hostile. I actually scoured Google for quite a while and couldn't find anything about the original PS1, only PS2/PS3/PS4 and the PSOne model - that's why I asked here.
>googling for info on how to fix this
>all results lead to Yahoo Answers about PS1 issues
>"lmfao you still have a ps1 get a ps3 son"
Oh, and if you were thinking about buying it, avoid the English version of Persona 1. It's really expensive and it had all sorts of obnoxious "localization" edits. Better off emulating it, I think there's a fan translation patch.
I remember this and part 1 as a really fun game.
I am a Nintendo fan and I like the first Playstation a lot because that is where the third party support of the Super Nintendo went to.
Rayman (the first one, Rayman 2 is actually much better on the N64)
Castlevania Symphony of the Night
Oddworld: Abe's Odyssey
And the Crash and Spyro games
Faggots who had N64s as their first systems are now earning disposable income, so they're all like "I really wanna buy back all those games and shit I told my mom she could sell before I went to college". That plus the "90s kid" hipster wave is in full effect. Weird it's not affecting the PS1 hardware at all, but some PS1 games are still prohibitively expensive.
N64 games aren't that expensive right now. You can get a lot of classic N64 games complete with box and manual for close to their original MSRP, oftentimes less, which is unheard of for SNES games. If you want good prices, participate in eBay auctions and check pricecharting.com to see what things are selling for.
They're good games that haven't been re-released.
Also I don't know what the current state of PS1 emulation is like, but once you get past 4th gen people tend to start reporting problems.
It was big everywhere in Europe. Sony invested big in our markets, even going so far as to create localized versions of many games.
Nintendo was always small in Europe.
I'm a Portugal fag (23) and I remember everybody having a PS1 to play with. During those times literally everyone had one, and we had lots of magazines etc. Before the PS craze we only had NES bootlegs and the occasional Mega Drive for rich fags and non-casuals.
Speaking of PS1 an Europe, I'm a big fan of Europian game cases. They not only have better box art, but they're also thicker than regular jewel cases and manuals are not a part of the front cover.
