If you like point and click style adventures you should get in the Discworld games. They also look lovely.

I still play Rayman and Ridge Racer Revolution to this day, two classics that'll never get old IMO.

Probably lesser known, but Rosco McQueen and Gex: Deep Cover Gecko still provide bags of entertainment for me.

In terms of Point & Clicks, Broken Sword 1 & 2 were also on the Playstation if memory serves me correctly - I kinda remember them needing an entire memory card to save though which wasn't so hot.

Haha. RAHHHHHH TOO LATE, I'VE TURNED UP NOW TO censored ON YOUR SILLY JXD PARADE! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Shin, if you only judge it by the screen then its good (unless you get a dead pixel, which is commonplace for JXD screens), but for emulation accuracy and the dodgy physical controls, and battery life - its not very good. Vita and PSP are better in all regards, although you'd probably have to pay for the Vita PSN games (you can get away with not doing that on the PSP still). PSN has an enormous selection of PS1 games, and because its using an official emulator, you'll have a lot less grief with it and know it won't break or glitch. Plus you have the choice of purchasing them if you feel guilty about piracy....or you can just download them, just as you can download ROMs, for the PSP and JXD.

Oh, and i've now officially tried a JXD 7800B, so not just going by evidence of others or using previous or other models in their range. Its met my expectations (ie good, but still has the flaws I expected or already heard about or anticipated).
I used to have a PSP and enjoyed playing PS1 Parasite Eve and Resident Evil 3 on it, unfortunately Time Gal the game I wanted the most I could never get to work.. I though Snes, amiga,and N64 emulation was terrible just unplayable, comparing my Super Famicom Ninja Warriors again to the PSP it was like the Ninja's where walking through treacle.. The PSP couldn't emulate the PC Engine or Commodore +4 properly, PC Engine through Hugo wouldn't load most games and the one's that did work where glitched and unplayable wrong colours terribly emulated sound slowdown etc..

The CPS1 and 2 and Neo Emu where great but I just came to the conclusion I had all these games and all I was playing was Cadillac's and Dinosaurs and Punisher with is my biggest problem with emulation you have all these roms you don't play anything, and I'd rather play the original hardware.. Don't understand why people say I put 500 Megadrive roms on my PSP how many will they play? I've been using the DS with a RG for emulation namely Spectrum, Coleco and Mame as the touch screen works better for these computers, and Amstard Sorcery and I have a 3DS I've hardly touched apart from Out Run..

The JXD for me is the size got small hands and at least in work I can put the DS or PSP in my pocket when I'm called but they keep me so busy these days in work I don't have time to play it, at least I'm earning my money :lol:

I'm tempted to get either a Vita with Gravity Rush or Firmware hack another PSP, as some scummy tea leaf stole my old PSP from the work staff room..

Parappa is still great.

I can still play through Tony Hawk 1 and 2 and really enjoy them too.

Oh and Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain. The top down one ie: the good one.

So what this thread proves is that there are a huge amount of PS1 games that still hold up today and those that don't like wobbly, jaggy visuals can go back to their blurry, muddy textures of the N64 :wink:

Yay, its 1997 all over again! WAAAARR!

Although to be fair to the N64, the specific Virtual Console releases that run at 480p on the Wii look quite nice still. Mario Kart 64 looks lovely, as do a few others.

Blurry textures > pixelated textures :wink:

Although pixleation has a certain charm of it's own, when used for aesthetic purposes.
