Your favourite Playstation games

Post by NickThorpe » Mon Feb 10, 2014 11:19 am

Hi all, we're looking to get a bit more Playstation coverage in the magazine, particularly as the machine is 20 years old this year. To that end, we'd like to know your five favourite Playstation games! If you could order them 1-5 with your favourite at the top, that'd be very helpful.

I'll kick off with mine:

1: Wipeout 3 Special Edition
2: Metal Gear Solid
3: Soul Blade
4: Silent Bomber
5: Breath of Fire III

Not really but then I don't really think that Res Evil 1&2 play well either - but I still love the atmopshere the game creates.

Fair enough, I found Nightmare creatures to be a great game when I played it back in the day, but now the 3D worlds just don't hold up. The controls are more fluid though, no doubt.

Resident Evil One, not great, 2 and 3 with Dual Shock support play well, but you need to be on a CRT tv and the controls takes some adjustment; Resident Evil 2, for me at least is exceptional.
