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.30/10/2018 at 10:10 pm #45651
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.01/11/2018 at 1:15 pm #45698
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.07/11/2018 at 3:03 pm #46044Kevin DooleyKeymasterPoints: 430Rank: Newbie
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
Final Fantasy VII
Grand Theft Auto
Metal Gear Solid
Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
Resident Evil Director’s Cut
Ridge Racer Type 4
Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six

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.23/11/2018 at 1:29 pm #48046

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