Silent Hill
Wipeout (original release for the lovely packaging and manual; Platinum version for the smoothed off rough edges)
Wipeout 2097
Wipeout 3
Wipeout 3 Special Edition
N-Gen Racing (racing game by the creators of the first two Wipeouts that features upgradeable jet fighters. It's like Wipeout in the sky.)
Omega Boost (the mech shooter that Polyphony Digital would be famous for if there was any sanity in the world)
N2O (trippy tube shooter by Tony Crowther with bonus levels that resemble Zone Mode in the later Wipeouts and a stage that looks like a journey into Goatse)
Silent Bomber (top-down lock on shooter)
Metal Gear Solid (much more fun than I was expecting)
Zero Divide (not for the main game, but for Tiny Phalanx. The main game is crap)
R-Type Delta
Killer Loop (magnetism based futuristic racer with interesting control options)
Repeated play ensures success.

really? Ehgeiz is awful, and Legend of Dragoon takes a good 30 hours just to find a storyline of a FMv seqquence.

I'm willing to bet that, 18 months after asking, David no longer requires PlayStation recommendations :|

What's going on here?? A clever spam?

I'll recommend the same PS1 games I always do.

Hogs of War, Syndicate wars, Twisted Metal 2 (World Tour), Bishi Bashi Special, True Pinball.

Whatever you do don't play Olympic Soccer/Soccer '97 I went back to it once & it totally ruined my memories!
I'm dying to play Twisted Metal World Tour again. I hired it from Blockbuster one weekend when I was on call and was very irritated to be interrupted by my pager. At least, I think it was this game! We're there a load of crazy cars involved?

Imagine my surprise of deciding I might want to get a ps1 again so looking in the game reccomendation thread for inspiration and discovering I started this thread. .......9 years ago.

Then seeing this post made me chuckle too

Prices have gone up a lot haven't they? Just sold both Dino Crisis games as a pair for over £40 (not including the cost of international shipping which has been paid for on top) on ebay. I remember picking these up really cheap a few years ago.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Yeah, prices are silly but that won't stop speculators from pushing them up further and good luck trying to pick when the bubble will burst.

There are a lot of cheap PS Classics knocking about though. With a bit of shopping around, you could have one of those for £40 along with its 20 games, 2 controllers and HDMI output. It's a bit of a shame about the emulation, but that can be improved with a bit of hacking.
