    Title says it all, really – what are your thoughts on the games that’ll be on the PlayStation Classic?

    Personally, I reckon the lineup’s pretty decent. Can see why some are disappointed (big shame there’s no Wipeout, for instance), but it’s still a good selection IMO.

    It’s a disappointing list but it doesn’t represent what made the console popular, nor the culture that drove their success. I’ve put together my own list which better represents that. It’s also worth noting that the title that sold the best, weren’t always the best titles.

    I’ve added a personal selection below.

    Of these, Ridge Racer was a seminal title that sold the system to the world, an incredible omission.

    I agree, the original Ridge Racer is an unusual game to omit. Would’ve thought it was a no-brainer, considering how important it was to the system.

    Perhaps doesn’t help that many of the PS Classic’s games are on the PS Store too (albeit for the PS3, PSP and PSVita only). For me, knowing I can pick up the OG Destruction Derby and Metal Gear Solid for a few quid diminishes the Classic’s appeal somewhat.

    Ideally you’d have had around 40 titles and perhaps some demo’s as well, Demo 1 inclusion would have been nice. Ultimately it’s a poor offering and let’s down Sony’s own heritage.

    When I think of PS1 games I immediately think of three series: Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, and Gran Turismo. The fact that only one of these three are on the 20 is surprising. Would’ve also liked to have seen a game from the following series included: Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Driver, Tony Hawks, and Silent Hill.

    Here’s the official list:

    Battle Arena Toshinden
    Cool Boarders 2
    Destruction Derby
    Final Fantasy VII
    Grand Theft Auto
    Intelligent Qube
    Jumping Flash
    Metal Gear Solid
    Mr Driller
    Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
    Rayman
    Resident Evil Director’s Cut
    Revelations: Persona
    Ridge Racer Type 4
    Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
    Syphon Filter
    Tekken 3
    Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
    Twisted Metal
    Wild Arms

    Perhaps more important than the list of games is the fact it’s using a not-brilliant freeware emulator to power the whole thing. Very lazy, very cheap. A definite no-buy from me. Extremely disappointed in Sony’s cash-grab here.

    Absolutely, the whole thing is an embarrassment to Sony and ridicules their own heritage.

    I like the complete series of the video game which is mentioned above as I used to play some of the mentioned video game series. According to me, every system has its own advantages and disadvantages or it totally depends on the individual experience. Many people like to play on the PlayStation or other gaming consoles like Xbox and many of us like to play on Microsoft Windows. It is true that the console can be portable and now it able to play high graphics video game in multiplayer mode. One can also carry their game from the one PS to another PS console. One can also able to download some of the digital content like music, TV shows while playing. All this thing depends upon the subscription card used by the gamer. On the other hand, we can get high processing power in the PC as compared to the gaming console. I like to play action adventure and racing video game in my free time. I used to play Grand theft auto, Need for Speed, and FIFA 18. All these games can be played on many platforms like PS, Xbox, PC, etc. Grand theft auto 5 is the latest series of the GTA video game, one can explore more in the game while playing like doing experiments with the vehicles, doing robbery at the store, etc. FIFA is the football simulation video game that can be played in a team of 11 players. One of the interesting thing about this latest series is that we can create our own team and can substitute our player in the middle of the game. One can also visit this site https://www.instant-gaming.com/en/ to have more games easily. Previously, all of my friends used to play their game in a multiplayer mode, they all inspired me to play the game. I always used to play my game on the PC as it is very easy and comfortable.
