What are your favorite PS games?
I'm playing mine now and every top 10 list I get feels the same.
You can include obscure shit, I don't mind. I already downloaded some games I enjoyed as a kid and some I didn't finish or got a chance to play then.

So far I have:
>Ape Escape
>Bloody Roar II
>Bust-A-Move 4
>Castlevania: SOTN
>Crash Bandicoot
>Croc: Legend of the Gobbos
>Crash Team Racing
>Dino Crisis
>Future Cop - L.A.P.D.
>Gekido - Urban Fighters
>Ghost in the Shell
>Intelligent Qube
>Klonoa: Door to Phantomile
>Legacy of Kain - Soul Reaver
>Metal Gear Solid
>PaRappa the Rapper
>Resident Evil 2
>Silent Hill
>Syphon Filter
>Tekken 3
>Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
>Twisted Metal 2

Bonus points for multiplayer stuff. Also, for now I'd like to avoid JPRG as they are more time consuming.

It's an isometric ARPG, pretty much tries to copy Diablo but it's full 3D. The setting is still high fantasy, but more bright and colorful without being a kiddy game. The story is interesting, and it's got some cool enemy design. 8 worlds to go through, (I think?) 5 classes to play as, and the quests that you complete for each world are randomized. Definitely overlooked, and I feel that the PS version is better than the PC or (god forbid) mobile version. If nothing else, check out this cheesy and super 90s music video from the game.

Thank you. Got interesting things from every post.
Game count is around 40 right now so I think it's time to stop.
Devil Dice. WIld 9. Lucky Luke.

That's some semi "obscure" stuff that is actually a ton of fun.

oh look at that, has it been one week already since the last ps1-recommendation-thread?
Don't forget Diablo since it has splitscreen co op on ps1 ! I would also say grab Digimon world and Monster Rancher.
Does Diablo really works with a gamepad?
Never played the console port and honestly I expected some shitshow but I've been reading positive opinions.
The only problem is the graphics look a tad downtrodden but that's understandable, and some people have even said they liked it, seems more retro.
The truth is there's like a hundred worthwhile titles on ps1 at least and recommending a handful is a difficult choice.
OP, I was working on a hacked PSTV intended for playing with family at family gatherings and I looked thru buttloads of games to pick out a bunch of multiplayer games as well as a scant few single player games worth checking out.

The PS1 had some really fantastic Wrestling games, too bad that the good ones you had to import, since most western games were garbage (WWE Warzone, Attitude, the ECW games using the same engine, those fucking horrible WWF Arcade games etc.) or based on castrated japanese games (Like the First Smackdown games that were based on a heavily castrated Toukon Retsuden, or Power Move Pro Wrestling that also was based on the first Toukon Retsuden but robbed by it's NJPW license).

My favorite by far is Zen-Nihon Pro Wrestling: Ouja no Kon (aka AJPW King's Soul), IMO this is also the best wrestling game of that console generation.
And also Fire Pro Wrestling G of course.
Zen Nihon Joshi Puroresu: Joou Densetsu: Yume no Taikousen (aka Legend of Queens) was also a fine game with some really good animations (but I didn't like the fighting system that much)
The Shin Nihon Pro-Wrestling: Toukon Retsuden games also were pretty groundbreaking for the time (wasn't the first one even the first 3D-Wrestling game?), too bad how much the developer Yuke's sucks now judging them by the horrible WWE2k games.
Champion Wrestler: Jikkyou Live looks good, but Fire Pro Wrestling is by far the better 2D-Wrestling game.

The three Puroresu Sengokuden games on the PS1 are also said to be some fine games, but I haven't played these yet.

The Dreamcast had it even worse, since there wasn't a single good wrestling game released in the west, but again in Japan that genre really boomed back than with Games like Fire Pro Wrestling D, Toukon Retsuden 4, Giant Gram 2 and Giant Gram 2000.
