So lately I've been snatching up a few older PS1 games I missed on eBay. Gotten a few of the more popular ones first, Vagrant Story, Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy 7, and I think that should about do it for RPGs. I already have Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes on the GC, so I really don't care about Metal Gear Solid on the PS. Anybody have any other suggestions for games that have aged well? Resident Evil is pretty much out due to its horrible controls which RE4 laid bare only too clearly. I don't see a lot of point to older racing games either.

Tenchu series (well ok maybe not the whole series, but the first 2 definitely) are always good. Castlevania Symphony of the Night is a MUST BUY... that game owns. That is all I can think of currently... I know there are more but I am half asleep.

Don't forget about Chrono Cross, it's the sequel to Chrono Trigger, it came out late in the ps1's life. So late it got overlooked by way too many people. Aside from Final Fantasy 7, it's the best rpg the system has to offer.

And as far as racing games go, Wipeout 3 is hands down the best racing game i've ever played. It still holds up today. Good luck finding a copy, but damn is it worth it.

Wipeout XL > Wipeout 3

See, I loved part 1 and 3, I couldnt stand XL. I'll even take that crappy n64 and ps2 version before XL. =/

WoW, Whats wrong with you... XL was running at a constant 60FPS with awsome effects and the best music of the series...

I didn't think the PS2 version was that bad, not nearly as bad as the N64 version. The PSP version ROCKS, it feels so much like XL.

*sighs* Dreamcast, THE most underrated system ever :( I was always hoping Sega would come out from the dark to make Part 2 but guess that never fell through

One.

Game play was, meh... Graphics were really good but not anything revolutionary. But the presentation was absolutely awesome. There are few experiences that compare to running through that warehouse at the very beginning with ALL HELL breaking loose and the building getting shot to pieces and just narrowly missing complete annihilation.

Now I can't find a copy nowhere!!! Life is hard... :(

ace combat 2 was so fun. Probably not so much now, but when I was 8ish it was sweet.

Haha.. 17 now. I can't really remember how old, but it was around then. Could of been younger.

Edit: Wiki says it was released in '97, so yeah could of been 7 years old.
