Quake II for PSX sure is nice with the PS mouse

Having a quick Google, there's more games than I expected support the mouse:

Like yourself, I picked one up for Alien Resurrection. Looking at that list, it's something I need to revisit when there are great games like Syndicate Wars to play with it.
