When it comes lớn the best PS1 games, there"s certainly no shortage of great titles khổng lồ choose from. The PlayStation console has a massive library, with a wide range of experiences. Since the PS1 first launched back in 1994, it quickly became clear that something rather special had arrived, and it wasn"t long before it made its way lớn the đứng đầu of the gaming market. What continues khổng lồ stay with us, though, are the games the console was trang chủ to. From epic RPGs to lớn memorable horror games and home versions of arcade hits, there really is so much on offer.


Below, we"ve tried lớn highlight the very best PS1 games that reflect how varied and diverse the experiences on the console are. There really is something for everyone here. & Thanks lớn the little PlayStation Classic (aka the PlayStation Mini), you can even trả lời some of these picks below. So without further ado, here"s 25 of the best PS1 games.

If you need a multiplayer game that anybody can pick up & play, this mini-game collection should definitely be in your library. Bishi Bashi Special is a compilation of Super Bishi Bashi và Hyper Bishi Bashi, containing 85 different button-bashing challenges with a variety of bizarre themes, ranging from kicking mobsters khổng lồ chucking custard pies at your wedding guests. Up khổng lồ three controllers are supported at once so you’ll need a Multitap lớn get the most out of the game, but if you’ve got a larger session going on everybody can still get involved, as eight players can take part in the tiệc nhỏ mode.

The PlayStation version of the final game in the Street Fighter Alpha series felt replicated the excellent arcade original faithfully, though with some concessions to the console’s limited memory. If it had simply done that, that would be one thing. But this version did so much more, adding new characters khổng lồ complete the inclusion of the Super Street Fighter II cast, as well as a World Tour mode that allowed players khổng lồ customize their characters via fighting challenges. It felt absolutely stuffed with content back in 1999, & remains satisfying for both lone players và those of a more competitive nature.

23. Tenchu: Stealth Assassins


(Image credit: From Software)

Is it fair to lớn say that Tenchu was one of the first authentic ninja games ever? We think so. While the shadowy assassins had never been short of videogame representation, they had typically appeared in kích hoạt games. By requiring the player khổng lồ exercise caution và stealthily assassinate targets, Tenchu really re-examined what ninja games should be, & played a part in the growing stealth-action genre. The trò chơi offered a great khuyễn mãi giảm giá of freedom in terms of carrying out your objectives, but was not for the impatient – observation was key as you tried to lớn identify the perfect time to lớn strike. Getting it right is still a thrilling experience.

Neversoft’s first try with your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man really stood out from the crowd, và not just because it was a great superhero game in an age when they were far from common. The combat và stage thiết kế are solid regardless of the license, but the development team really nailed all the great things about Marvel’s hero. Whether you’re swinging between buildings, ensnaring bad guys with a website shot, or even just hearing Spidey’s little quips when he handily defeats another grunt, Spider-Man is a satisfying experience for both long-term fans of the character và players who just want a great action-adventure game.

21. Einhander

Shoot-"em-ups are definitely outside of Square’s RPG comfort zone, but that didn’t stop it from making a real impact in the genre. Einhänder is a decidedly conventional shoot-’em-up, but one that has been produced to a very high quality with great visuals và strong trò chơi design enhanced by the combo-based score system and modular Gunpod power-ups, useful for taking down the big bosses. There are some really great shoot-’em-ups on the PlayStation – R-Type Delta, G-Darius và Gradius Gaiden khổng lồ name a few – but we’ve highlighted Einhander because it’s wholly original, rather than developing on the legacy of an existing series.

20. Ridge Racer Type 4


(Image credit: Namco)

The original Ridge Racer was emblematic of early Nineties arcade excess và was a major hit at the PlayStation’s launch. Player expectations had changed by the late Nineties though, so Namco shifted its approach khổng lồ the series to lớn match. Where the original was a loud, colorful game that you played for a good time, not a long time, Ridge Racer Type 4 offered a relaxing contrast with pastel-colored skies and a more relaxed soundtrack. The excellent drift-heavy racing remained though, and the trò chơi had some fun stories, plus more cars và tracks lớn play with than any of its predecessors.

19. Final Fantasy Tactics


(Image credit: Square-Enix)

As one of the biggest names in the Japanese RPG landscape, Final Fantasy’s foray into strategy RPG territory was hotly anticipated, & it didn’t disappoint. This one dispenses with the high budget 3d spectacle và sci-fi leanings of mainline PlayStation counterparts like Final Fantasy VII and VIII, instead offering up more complex battles featuring 2 chiều characters on isometric 3d stages, with job classes that call back to lớn the more traditional fantasy roots of the series. Though combat is a big khuyễn mãi giảm giá here the plot hasn’t been skimped on, with a depth & maturity that belies the cuteness of the character designs.

18. Twisted Metal 2: World Tour


(Image credit: Sony)

Whether you were speeding through Hong Kong’s railway tunnels or blowing up the Eiffel Tower, there was no doubt that expanding the oto combat khổng lồ a global scale was a great move for the Twisted Metal series. As well as these more complex and expansive arenas, the second trò chơi in the series introduced some iconic vehicles such as Axel & Mr Slam, as well as a co-op mode that allowed players to lớn tackle the tournament together. The only downside was missing out on the endings, which could only be viewed by solo combatants – they remain memorably, deliciously evil today.

17. Time Crisis


(Image credit: Namco)

If you were being shot at by a horde of really angry people, you’d want khổng lồ hide behind something for a bit of protection. It seems so obvious, & yet light gun games just didn’t let you vày it until Namco literally changed the game by introducing the cover pedal in Time Crisis. This PlayStation version is an excellent likeness for the arcade classic, but what really puts it over the đứng top is the inclusion of a totally original second scenario set in a hotel, which is exclusive to lớn this version. It justifies the purchase of a G-Con gun by itself.

16. Driver: You Are the Wheelman


(Image credit: Ubisoft)

Reflections might have accidentally created one of the hardest tutorial stages ever, but getting past it was well worth it. Inspired by the great car chase movies of the Seventies, Driver gives you plenty of different driving missions to lớn take on as an undercover cop, from getaways lớn tailing other cars. What makes Driver quality on the PlayStation is that its four đô thị environments – Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles and new york – are proper xuất hiện worlds with plenty of freedom khổng lồ choose your own route, which is crucial to making your evasion of the cops feel organic and satisfying.

15. Vagrant Story


(Image credit: Square Enix)

Square had fully mastered the PlayStation hardware by the time Vagrant Story arrived, and the trò chơi is absolutely stunning when you consider what the developers were working with. While the cutscenes are breathtaking to behold, they’re not the key focus here – in fact, Vagrant Story is a surprisingly streamlined take on its genre, with action and adventure taking priority instead of the usual RPG fetch quests & NPC interactions. There’s some real depth to lớn the combat, too – you can even target the individual limbs of enemies, in order to strategically break them down & reduce their ability to lớn function.

14. Spyro The Dragon


(Image credit: Activision)

It seems lượt thích a silly question looking back, but there was once a real debate over whether or not the PlayStation could actually bởi a 3 chiều platform trò chơi – a proper one, with big mở cửa stages, not the corridors and caverns of Crash Bandicoot và Croc. Spyro The long was the emphatic answer lớn that question. Not only could the PlayStation vì chưng a 3d platform game, but it could vì one very well indeed. It’s not the hardest PlayStation trò chơi you’ll play, but the locations are wonderful to explore, và controlling Spyro feels great, so you’ll enjoy breezing through lớn the end.

13. Tomb Raider


(Image credit: Square Enix)

While there are five PlayStation games khổng lồ choose from, it’s Lara Croft’s first adventure that really does the trick for us. There was simply nothing quite lượt thích Tomb Raider when it first launched in 1996 – that combination of exploration, puzzle-solving, and gunplay in a 3d environment was wholly unique. It’s also quite a different experience from its successors. Though it features memorable mix pieces like the famous dinosaur encounter, the original Tomb Raider is more reliant on mental challenges than action, and sticks closely to lớn the theme of tomb raiding rather than venturing out into the xuất hiện air.

12. Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee


(Image credit: GT Interactive Software)

The very first Oddworld game put you in the role of Abe, a poor meat factory worker who accidentally discovers that he and his Mudokon buddies are about to be turned into tasty treats. Your job is khổng lồ liberate as many of your fellow enslaved Mudokons as you can, by ordering them about, telepathically controlling dangerous enemies, throwing grenades around, & more. It’s something of a hybrid puzzle platformer, with the cinematic ambition of Another World & the character management of Lemmings, but with the added bonus of some excellent pre-rendered visuals và rather dark humor. Also, Abe can fart.

11. WipEout 2097


(Image credit: Sony)

The original WipEout had done a lot to lớn establish the PlayStation as a cool console, & the fast futuristic racing kích hoạt was just as exciting the second time around. WipEout 2097 was far easier khổng lồ get into thanks khổng lồ more forgiving collisions and the new Vector speed class, a slower standard khổng lồ ease people in. But the challenge hadn’t been stripped away – you could now destroy your rivals with new weapons like the iconic Quake Disruptor, & the Phantom speed class & secret Piranha team awaited master racers. Licensed music from The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers just sweetened the deal.

10. PaRappa The Rapper


(Image credit: Sony)

Apart from being a brilliant source of canine rhymes, PaRappa The Rapper is a poster child for the creative, whimsical side of the PlayStation. As well as being a whole generation’s introduction to lớn the concept of music games, the colorful cartoon graphics, strange paper-thin characters & bizarre situations that PaRappa gets into are a world apart from anything else on the system. Plus, PaRappa himself is perhaps the most relatable character ever lớn star in a videogame – after all, his main concerns are getting a xinh đẹp partner, learning how khổng lồ drive, và having a desperately needed poo. We’ve all been there.

9. Silent Hill


(Image credit: Konami)

Other survival horror games might have been bloody và even tense, but Silent Hill was one of the very first to lớn be genuinely unsettling. A lot of that was down khổng lồ the psychological horror approach adopted by Konami’s developers, but equally, they did a lot khổng lồ make the small things matter. Sure, Silent Hill might be using fog lớn cover up a limited draw distance lượt thích so many other games of the era, but few of them incorporated it as an atmospheric touch in quite the same way. Và that Dual Shock heartbeat when you’re low on health? Brrr.

8. Gran Turismo 2


Back in the late Nineties, it was hard lớn imagine how Polyphony Digital could have possibly improved upon the original Gran Turismo. The trò chơi was by far the biggest & most realistic racing game available on not only the PlayStation, but any console, và players had gone wild for it. The simple solution was to lớn just have more of everything. While the racing felt pretty similar & the astounding graphics remained, Gran Turismo 2 features more cars & more tracks khổng lồ race them on – including the brand new inclusion of rally tracks, introducing off-road competition to the series.

7. Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped


(Image credit: Activision)

As the unofficial mascot of the PlayStation, you just knew the bonkers bandicoot would show up here. The first two games became famous for their high-quality platforming, across 3d into-the-screen sections as well as more traditional 2.5d areas. Rather than trying to reinvent the wheel, this third trò chơi just adds heaps of extra stuff khổng lồ do. The trò chơi offers motorbike rides, jetski sections, underwater adventures, and more, all with the same excellent presentation you’d expect. That’s all great for newcomers, & the challenge is still there for fanatics, with some truly testing time trials khổng lồ tackle for 100% completion.

6. Tekken 3


(Image credit: Namco)

The Tekken series was the premier 3 chiều fighting franchise on Sony’s console from the moment it arrived, & the third installment was easily the pinnacle of Namco’s achievements with the series in that era. The bộ vi xử lý core fighting kích hoạt was refined, with animations that more naturally flowed into one another, và the visuals were better thanks lớn the high-resolution mode và more solid character models. That wasn’t all though, as Tekken 3 was packed with things khổng lồ do. There were plenty of unlockables from bizarre characters like Gon to lớn odd modes like Tekken Ball, plus the scrolling beat-’em-up Tekken Force game.

5. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2


(Image credit: Activision)

The original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater was an unexpected success thanks lớn its chất lượng platform game-inspired take on extreme sports, and there were high expectations for the sequel. Neversoft knocked it out of the park, creating classic stages that are still amongst the best the series has ever had, & filling them with twice as many goals. The introduction of the manual massively increased the scope of the combos you could string together, & if you ever got bored you could just create your own park. Go on – crank up When Worlds Collide and feel that muscle memory returning.

4. Resident Evil 2


Resident Evil 2 is lớn Resident Evil what Aliens was khổng lồ Alien. Don’t believe us? Think about the tension of that first game, how it built up to that first zombie encounter. Resident Evil 2 has more than that on the very first screen, marking it out as the bigger budget, more action-packed sequel. But as you take Leon và Claire through Raccoon City, there are still plenty of scary moments – the gun shop nightmare and that first fleeting sight of the Licker stand out. Plus, the innovative game design meant that your first play might even affect a subsequent run.

3. Final Fantasy 7


(Image credit: Square Enix)

It’s so easy lớn talk about Final Fantasy 7’s production values, & they bởi vì deserve recognition. It had beautiful pre-rendered backgrounds, stunning real-time spell animations, và a soundtrack that is up there with the best ever. But the tale of Cloud, Sephiroth, and the fate of the planet is an epic one, và it’s often overlooked for featuring some real warmth. For every dramatic moment, you’ll see something like the tiệc nhỏ complaining about endless staircases, a scene with the Turks, or even a sighting of a mad scientist relaxing on the beach, making it easy to become invested in their plight.

2. Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night


At a time when the world was obsessed with the move lớn 3D, this 2d masterpiece was a timely reminder that chasing graphical trends was no substitute for superb trò chơi design. The game dispensed with the linear progression of past Castlevania games, instead allowing you khổng lồ explore a sprawling castle that opens up steadily as Alucard gains new abilities. The RPG elements are well integrated, the graphics have aged with grace and the soundtrack is truly excellent too. Khổng lồ understand this game’s impact, just consider this – this game is một nửa responsible for naming the “Metroidvania” subgenre of exploratory platform games.

1. Metal Gear Solid


What can you say about Konami’s classic? Few PlayStation games have such impressive 3 chiều environments, nor such cinematic ambition. Many games owe a debt lớn Metal Gear Solid’s simple but effective take on stealth. But what really sticks out to lớn us all these years later is just how inventive the trò chơi was. Whether it was hiding crucial information on the game’s physical packaging or giving you some ketchup to lớn let you kém chất lượng an injury – not to mention that quái thú fight with Psycho Mantis – Metal Gear Solid had plenty of out-of-the-box ideas, and rewarded players for having them too.
