    I don't have many games from my PS1 days, but I still have:

    All FFs released in Europe (including re-releases of the older ones)
    Vagrant Story (actually set in the same world as FF12)
    G Police
    Spyro games (spyro 2 and 3 are some of the best platform games ever made IMO)
    Metal Gear Solid
    Diablo I (yes, they released it on the Ps1 but it's rare)

    I have a few more though other means now (e.g. Abe games on Steam)

    I think part of the reason indie/"arcade" games are so popular is they're a lot like the PS1 generation of games

    I don't even think I had one proper fight. I just became fixated with that "copy the dummy combo" thing and just spent hours doing that :hehe:

    25 posts with no mention of Rollcage? This must be fixed at once!

    If you're going to play Wipeout 2097 (best racer ever IMO), go the whole hog and get a neGcon... it's so weird and so yet so right. The floaty ship handling seems to suit the unorthodox controls for some reason.

    And another shout out for G Police!


    Mission Briefings are at 0400 hours tomorrow. Good luck out there. Dismissed!

    Actually Vagrant story was developed by the same team who developed Tactics; which eventually went on to be in the same world FFXII was set in. If anything, both tactics and FFXII was based on Vagrant story; there are many references to it in FFXII. Vagrant Story was one of the only RPGs on the PS1 worth playing. The FF series was incredibly overrated IMO.

    I did love G Police as well. Such an underrated game.

    Gran Turismo 1 and 2 were great racing games.
    Also Digimon Rumble Arena, especially in 2 player mode.

    Oh dear... A fresh copy of Time Crisis (I've only got a sealed copy for some reason), Tekken, Tekken 2, Colony Wars, Die Hard Trilogy 2 (only played the 1st one) and Wing Over 2 are on their way!

    Total cost is <£20 though, thankfully.

    Just finished resident Evil 2 and apart from one boss it was certainly a lot easier than I remembered it being. But I was very new to gaming and pretty shite at it.

    Now I am a more experienced gamer and still shite but hey ho still having fun.

    Off to start Resident Evil 3 with that scary nemesis guy. Great stuff.

    God yes, what a truly epic game that was. No fluff, just driving and cutscenes to string the story together.

    Broke out my collection at weekend, Driver and Silent Bomber (classic Japanese blow-it-up action) got a good workout.
