    1. Final Fantasy VII
    2. Revelations: Persona

    4. Policenauts

    I didn't feel like giving my reasons for why I find this game great, so I went back in time and got Ian and Ben to talk about it.

  • To everybody who posts a second game, Thank you! From this point forward, I MUST remember to include a time lapse rule! As always, thanks for playing! Because of stagnation and multiple people have at least two, I will add one:

    1. Final Fantasy VII
    2. Revelations: Persona
    3. Metal Gear Solid
    4. Policenauts
    5. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    6. Final Fantasy IX
    7. Medal of Honor
    8. Spyro 2 Riptos Rage
    9. Arc the Lad 2
    10. Xenogears
    11. Gran Turismo 2
    12. Silent Hill
    13. Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2
    14. Kula World
    15. Crash Bandicoot
    16. The Legend of Dragoon
    17. Rival Schools: United By Fate
    18. Parasite Eve
    19. Suikoden II
    20. Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped

    I've seen a lot of calls for CTR, and that would have been a great addition, but Warped is the best Crash game IMO through level design and story arc. Also several of my favorites are already here so I believed this addition would be better over a few others I have.

    Please remember to let me know IF you want this to turn into a Kill Your Babies!. Otherwise I really appreciate how everybody has taken to this. It really makes being here so much fun!



  • @Brannox The only way we can be gods of our own universes is if we have the power to create and destroy. Although this one will hurt my heart much more than the N64 one when the killing starts happening.



  • @SabotageTheTruth You and me both friend. ;-)



  • Well then I will add one that will probably a bit more controversial and will be possibly voted out but whatver.

    1. Final Fantasy VII
    2. Revelations: Persona
    3. Metal Gear Solid
    4. Policenauts
    5. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    6. Final Fantasy IX
    7. Medal of Honor
    8. Spyro 2 Riptos Rage
    9. Arc the Lad 2
    10. Xenogears
    11. Gran Turismo 2
    12. Silent Hill
    13. Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2
    14. Kula World
    15. Crash Bandicoot
    16. The Legend of Dragoon
    17. Rival Schools: United By Fate
    18. Parasite Eve
    19. Suikoden II
    20. Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped
    21. T.R.A.G. (aka Hard Edge)

    This is a trashy RE type of anime cyberpunk game and I love it, for me it's an essential part of my PS1 collection.



  • @Musou-Tensei I have NEVER heard of this. Man, that looks terrible... so I love it!

    It's great to see a game I don't know on one of these.



  • Once more there has been a 24 hour plus time lapse so from now on in this thread and all future ones, add as many as your heart's content. I want to include as many people as possible, but I need to accept how niche our little bit of fun is. So with that in mind:

    1. Final Fantasy VII
    2. Revelations: Persona
    3. Metal Gear Solid
    4. Policenauts
    5. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    6. Final Fantasy IX
    7. Medal of Honor
    8. Spyro 2 Riptos Rage
    9. Arc the Lad 2
    10. Xenogears
    11. Gran Turismo 2
    12. Silent Hill
    13. Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2
    14. Kula World
    15. Crash Bandicoot
    16. The Legend of Dragoon
    17. Rival Schools: United By Fate
    18. Parasite Eve
    19. Suikoden II
    20. Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped
    21. T.R.A.G. (aka Hard Edge)
    22. Tomb Raider

    I add this here for three reasons. One: Lara Croft is gaming's first modern day female icon and her impact on the industry can not be understated. Two: While I have never played this version, I really enjoyed the reboot. 3. Its a franchise that got its start here and I'm SHOCKED two particular franchises are not represented (Pro-tip: If you want to add and can't think of one, go to Metacritic under Legacy).

    I also have some ideas for the next list but until then, three games to go, a potential discussion if anything needs to be removed and replaced, AND THEN WE KILL 'EM ALL BUT ONE! Sorry. Got a little carried away there.



    1. Final Fantasy VII
    2. Revelations: Persona
    3. Metal Gear Solid
    4. Policenauts
    5. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    6. Final Fantasy IX
    7. Medal of Honor
    8. Spyro 2 Riptos Rage
    9. Arc the Lad 2
    10. Xenogears
    11. Gran Turismo 2
    12. Silent Hill
    13. Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2
    14. Kula World
    15. Crash Bandicoot
    16. The Legend of Dragoon
    17. Rival Schools: United By Fate
    18. Parasite Eve
    19. Suikoden II
    20. Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped
    21. T.R.A.G. (aka Hard Edge)
    22. Tomb Raider
    23. Resident Evil 2

    Another game that can't be missing, I chose 2 because I think it's simply superior to 1 and 3.



    1. Final Fantasy VII
    2. Revelations: Persona
    3. Metal Gear Solid
    4. Policenauts
    5. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    6. Final Fantasy IX
    7. Medal of Honor
    8. Spyro 2 Riptos Rage
    9. Arc the Lad 2
    10. Xenogears
    11. Gran Turismo 2
    12. Silent Hill
    13. Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2
    14. Kula World
    15. Crash Bandicoot
    16. The Legend of Dragoon
    17. Rival Schools: United By Fate
    18. Parasite Eve
    19. Suikoden II
    20. Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped
    21. T.R.A.G. (aka Hard Edge)
    22. Tomb Raider
    23. Resident Evil 2
    24. Tekken 3

    There needs to be a top-tier fighting game here, and it doesn't get much better than the third Tekken. And I love that OST! <3

    25. Crash Team Racing

    2nd best kart racer only to Mario Kart 8!



  • @Alex840 I've got to disqualify CTR because we already have two Crash games, but please add another! We're SO close to a complete list!!



  • I'm gonna wait to see if Alex comes back and replaces his CTR pick, but if not I'll offer up Colin McRae Rally 2.0 as a replacement pick.

    The ps1 really was flush with excellent racing games. There were like 3 Wipeout games, Ridge Racer, etc.



  • As upset as I am that the 2 best Crash games (2 and CTR) aren't making the list, I'll nominate WipEout 2097!



  • Final list:

    1. Final Fantasy VII
    2. Revelations: Persona
    3. Metal Gear Solid
    4. Policenauts
    5. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    6. Final Fantasy IX
    7. Medal of Honor
    8. Spyro 2 Riptos Rage
    9. Arc the Lad 2

    22. Tomb Raider

    25. WipEout 2097

    Great job Allies!



  • Nice pick. I'm also real glad I'm not gonna have to break anyone's heart by instantly killing Chrono Cross. Because I would.
