16 replies 3032 views Edited Feb 20, 2013

I'm looking to buy some PS1 games to add to my Vita collection but was wondering if anyone could give me their top 3 recommendations. I know what most games are, but I'm also looking at how well they've aged in others opnions.

 

Here's what I own:

 

Final Fantasy 9

Final Fantasy Tactics

Syphon Filters 1-3

Twisted Metal 2

Grandia

A Bug's Life


and some others from Playstation Plus.

 

Thanks for any help!

 

-Tim

My Playstation Collection consists of:
152 PS3 games - 564 PS2 games - 72 PS1 games - 202 PSP games - 11 PS Vita games

Over 1,100 games total :smileyhappy:

If you like Final Fantasy, I would highly suggest either purchasing the Chrono Series or Xenogears. 

 

Personally Xenogears is quite the underrated gem.  Love that game a lot.

 Parasite Eve 

Parasite Eve 2 

 

If u choose to try out Parasite Eve, start with the first game, the graphics are very dated but it is an amazing game. The music, the story, the gameplay, it's amazing. Plus the fact u have to go through the game a 2nd time to unlock a 70+ floor level (The Chrysler Bulding) with nearl each floor a labrynth of its own. It is a horror game but it is NOT MEANT to be scary, the only thing 'scary' are the monster transformation scenes. 

 

I also recommend:
Tomb Raider 1-4

Resident Evil 1-3 (Thought there is a game freezing bug in RE3 so don't save throughout the hospital stage)

Silent Hill 1 (if u have a PS3, u can transfer it to the Vita)

-Gex 3

 

Those are just a few.

Xenogears - forgot how fun the combat is.

Chrono Trigger - classic all JRPG fans must play.

Final Fantasy 6 - another classic

Alundra - if you liked Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past then you must have a look at this one.
