Whats any good playstation games?

Post by bhyperp » Fri Mar 14, 2008 4:41 am

I finally got PS1 games at a garage sale, GT, GT2 and Colin McCrae.

I have been playing CM2 everynight(no memory card so I have to start all over each time) for the last week. I looked up some info on modding the PS1 and have made it so I don`t have to close the lid and cut the RADIOACTIVE symbol out of the lid.....I wanna put a couple of yellow LED`s in it eventually.......back to the question:

What are some good games to get for the PS1....not too many RPG`s please as I don`t have a memory card for saving.

P.S. I like driving(space and vehicle) games but will try anything that is worth a go.....and can leave wipeout off the list...cause I`m trying to source one....I`m pretty sure it came out on PS1.

Ah yes the death scenes are great, how frustrating is the platform of laser death later on in the game?

Strider 2 is also great on the PS1
