Kill Your Babies! The PS1 Classic!



  • The community has spoken and decided these 25 games are worthy of being the only ones to ever exist on the Playstation One. But now its time for them to strike them down! Everyone will take a turn taking off a game from the list (killing it from existence) with a vaild reason as to why its gone until the "ultimate" game remains. Who will win? That's for you to decide. To slightly tweak the rules, I've tried instituting a 24 hour clock before the last add (in Selective Creation) or kill in Kill Your Babies before someone goes again, but in an effort to keep this timely: If FIVE people have made a kill since your last deletion, you may go again. I hope you have fun with this list and BE RUTHLESS!!

    I have never heard of this game, and definitely not when it comes to the all-time best PS1 games. Sorry, but there's just so much more star power with the other nominees.

    And so it begins...

    From all the games I have played from this list I disliked GT2 the most, infact I don't just dislike the entire franchise but the genre of racing sims in general, BORING!



  • Dang, Rival Schools is a lot of fun.

    The only Persona game I've played, and I thought it was outdone by previous MegaTen games on both the SFC and FC. There are dozens of better RPGs on the system.

    I'm gonna drop this bomb right here. I love ffvii. This game belongs on the list. It also deserves to come off the list. It's aged poorly, and it's most iconic contributions to the zeitgeist are a nonsensical main character death, and the slow bleeding to death of the franchise as squenix keeps trotting the same cast of characters out for animated movies and fighting games and etc. It is lauded as one of the best games on the ps1, but in my opinion, it's surpassed visually by viii and in actual overall quality by both ix and tactics. It's nostalgia is strong, and it undeniably changed the jrpg game forever. But I'm gonna kill it for those same two reasons.

    A real average shooter, even for the PS1 which wasn't flush with them. Not bad by any means, but there's some tough competition on this list!



  • I actually don't even wanna kill off any games unless somebody wrongs a game I love. Just waiting...



  • @TokyoSlim First, THANK YOU for going into why it was stricken! This is the kind of thing I'm talking about! But at the same time, that's my favorite game of all time, and I would love to have a discussion on your points, but they are yours and are valid. You hurt my heart sir. But that's the game! ;-)

    I'm not that big on the first MGS, I think the series got better as it went on.



  • @Brannox Also, Knights of the Round is ridiculous. :)

    I actually can't wait to see how they handle it in the remake.



  • @NeoCweeny I actually feel the exact opposite.



  • @TokyoSlim Yes it is and I hope they go even further. Just a hope...

    I'm not the biggest Crash Bandicoot fan out there, but it's a little crazy we're killing Final Fantasies off before an animated bandicoot. Decent platforming but Warped does it so much better.



  • Anyone want to bet on which of these wins? It seems to always be the most unassuming. Can't be too popular or too obscure...

    I just don't want to kill yet. This requires thought.



  • @Inustar The unassuming underdog, the strategy involved with what to take down; THAT'S why its fun (for me at least). But to your point and anyone else that wants to hold off on a kill, allow me to offer a free piece of strategy: If you take out the unassuming, you leave a better shot of your favorite standing. There are 12 games still alive I could see be victorious. Of those, four remain that I hope will win. And in accordance with my luck, those will the next four kills. In a row.

    Haven't played, barely heard of, and it's up there with some other really great games.



  • @NeoCweeny Fuck you! There will be blood!

    In all seriousness in just shocked MGS got axed that early. That was my bet for the winner!



  • People should really give Kula World a go. A true PS1 gem. Me explaining it will just make it sound boring so I won't even bother.

    I actually wanted to remove Final Fantasy IX first but I thought people would get too mad.

  • Tekken's gone -> I cried for two hours. :(

    Well. There's been 8 kills since my first one, so the rules allow me a new one.

    All the other remaining games ring a bell, Policenauts doesn't. It wouldn't feel right to let that sort of game grap the title. Now, I can be at least in some kind of peace with the winner.
