Best / favourite PS1 and PS2 games


#121

Kula World!

Used to spend a lot of time playing GTA London. 2 discs to load it up.


#122

I played a fair bit of PS1

Mainly the obvious ones - Tomb Raiders 1 and 2, Resident Evil 1 and 2, Tekken 1 and 2. I spent a lot of time playing the F1 game (I don’t even like F1, but I got quite into it, having to properly learn all the tracks etc0

Also that arcade conversion shooting game - the one where you got a big plastic gun with it and pressed a button on the gun to duck for cover (was a big foot pedal in the arcade version)


#123

Ooh remember The Getaway? Was promoted as having perfect recreations of London but I’m pretty sure that was bollocks.


#124

god of war 2 looked amazing, relative to the hardware it was running on and compared it to the average ps2 game it’s probably the best looking game ever.


#125

Heartening to see so many people mention CTR - deffo one of my favourite games ever.

Timesplitters (all 3)
FF VIII (proudest gaming moment is managing to get all the stuff to make the Lion Heart gunblade)
Future Cop: LAPD
Hogs of War
both Vigilante 8 games


#126

Point Blank innit. great game.


#127

hmm no

just googled it - was Time Crisis I was thinking of


#128

Disturbing lack of mentions for Wip3out 2097.


#129

Huh, you know what, it actually is pretty spot on:

RIP Rik Mayall


#131

yeah the way you get the Zodiac Spear was bullshit. there’s just absolutely no way you’d be able to do it without a guide


#132

Ah of course. I misread the duck for cover bit as shooting ducks - which i’m pretty sure was one of the levels on point blank :stuck_out_tongue:


#133

Also X


#134

yeah, totally shithouse. idk if it’s even worth all the messing about, either.

@The_Excession ahhh, I know what you mean by the crystal thing. haven’t played that bit in nearly ten years, but I remember there being an esper down there. actually quite liked that bit of the game, but I printed off guides for it.

I sometimes wonder what it would have been like playing FF games without strategy guides, trying to find all the secret stuff by a combination of the minimal info you get in game and trial and error.


#135

Wow don’t think I’ve thought about Fighting Force for about 20 years!

Nuclear Strike got proper hammered at our house.


#136

Everyone’s said most things, but I had a lot of fun with Driver on the PS1. The on-foot controls for the sequel were horrifyingly bad though.


#137

Oh yeah, it was painful. Guess it was a good precursor to the likes of GTA3 though.


#138

FFVII obv.

THPS 1-3.

The original Driver.

Loads which were probably shite but are very nostalgic for me: TOCA Touring Cars, Colin McRae Rally, Destruction Derby, Quake II (got a multitap when this came out and holy moly 4 player Quake II was amazing), Porsche Challenge, Tekken 2…


#139

I was thinking about this recently! I was getting annoyed at redoing a level on Score Hero, and it made me remember a massive level in the Getaway, which was made up of about 3 or 4 stages (including shooting your way out of a police station) but if you were killed, you had to go right back to the start every time. Including watching the cut scene in full every time


#140

I too enjoyed Driver - the drifty handling was great fun
