    Fantasy Mini PS1 Classic: Pick the line up

    Been enjoying the heck out of the Mini SNES Classic, and saw that Nintendo have the copyright for a Mini N64 in place already which is pretty sweet. The Rare issue though makes that set a lot easier to guess the games than previous models, so I'm curious:

    If Sony were to put their big boy trousers on and do their version of a Mini PS1 Classic, what would be the 20 games you'd put on it? To add a degree of difficulty, if a game had more than one disc originally (MGS, FFVII for example), they'd take up as many "game slots" as they had discs, e.g. if you include MGS you'd have 19 games built in instead due to it being a two disc game. Also, we'll dodge copyright issues for now as it's bound to be more straightforward than the Nintendo/Rare stuff.

    My 20
    1. Tekken 3
    2. Crash Bandicoot 3
    3. Spyro The Dragon
    4. Tomb Raider
    5. PaRappa The Rapper
    6. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
    7. Resident Evil 3
    8 & 9. Metal Gear Solid
    10. Wipeout 2047
    11. Gran Turismo
    12, 13 & 14. Final Fantasy 7
    15. Driver
    16. Oddworld: Abe's Oddysey
    17. Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night
    18. Medievil
    19. Ape Escape
    20. Silent Hill 2

    Notes: Some I haven't personally played, like Castlevania, Resi Evil & Silent Hill, but I know the reputation behind them & it creates a more rounded group than my choices of mostly platformers.

    I can't make a whole list at the moment but Soul Blade should definitely be on there. I'd second Syphon Filter as well, loved that game.

    Re: Fantasy Mini PS1 Classic: Pick the line up

    Couple of comments so far:

    - I feel like putting multiple games from the same franchise robs the overall set of more variety

    - Can't imagine many people pining for some of the earlier editions of sports franchises, but I guess there could be some novelty factor in playing as older teams & whatnot. Definitely wouldn't include both Smackdown games personally, seeing as two is basically an expansion on the first.

    GTA, GranTurismo, Resident Evil, Tekken, Spyro, SmackDown, Tomb Raider, final fantasy, Driver, Metal Gear..

    This would be true of most franchises where each sequel is the same game with a new coat of paint (i.e Tomb Raider series) but this wouldn't apply to Final Fantasy or Resident Evil where each game is a classic in its own right and different enough from the last one to stand on its own. Resident Evil 1 and 2 are both PlayStation classics and easily essential enough to where neither one should be omitted from an all-in-one bundle featuring the consoles defining titles.

    Re: Fantasy Mini PS1 Classic: Pick the line up

    Neat thread idea:

    1, 2 and 3 - Final Fantasy VII
    4 - Metal Gear Solid
    5 - Smackdown 2 KYR
    6 - Grand Theft Auto
    7 - Crash Bandicoot
    8 - Crash Team Racing
    9 - Tomb Raider II
    10 - Tekken 3
    11 - G-Police
    12 - Oddworld Abe's Odyssy (hello..hello..follow me..ok)
    13 - Rayman
    14 - Ape Escape
    15 - Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2
    16 - Medievil
    17 - Spyro The Dragon
    18 - Driver
    19 - The Legend of Dragoon
    20 - Worms (bye-bye)

    ---

    I tried to go by one game per series, because taking FF8 and 9 would of taken up 8 slots.

    I downloaded Rayman on my ipad a few months ago. Thought it was a tough enough game 20 years ago, near impossible to play on an ipad to get the timing right.

    This would be pretty much my list, except I'd have Gran Turismo instead of The Legend of Dragoon (never played it personally).

    Fifa Road To World Cup 1998 too would make my personal list too.

    Re: Fantasy Mini PS1 Classic: Pick the line up

    1. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    2. Crash Bandicoot Warped
    3. Chrono Cross
    4/5/6. Final Fantasy VII
    7. Gran Turismo
    8/9. Metal Gear Solid
    10. Oddworld: Abe's Odyssy
    11. PaRappa the Rapper
    12. Resident Evil
    13. Silent Hill
    14. Spider-Man
    15. Spyro
    16. Tekken 3
    17. The Legend of Dragoon
    18. Tomb Raider
    19. Vagrant Story
    20. Xenogears

    I tried to keep it to one per series and left sports games off the table for the reasons Dave said. Also Shock LoD was an awesome game, one of the most deserving of a remake.

    Sports are life.

    But fair enough on SD 1 and 2. I'd just probably include SD 2 and a WCW game like Nitro or WCW/nWo Thunder.

    Oh God Nitro & Thunder were the worst games ever though the entrance screens are almost worth it.

    "ARE YOU PREPARED FOR A FATAL ENCOUNTER"

    vs. the World was the most fun to play of any company's games but missed a Season mode.

    Tbf though most wrestling games on PS1 weren't that great. N64 was where it was at in that department.

    Re: Fantasy Mini PS1 Classic: Pick the line up

    I like the addition of the original Rayman, think that was one of the first real big sellers on the console.

    I admit stuff like Chrono Cross & Legend Of Dragoon weren't that big over here, so it's hard for me to judge them.
