i wanted to make a unique THREAD were the playstation pioneers would post awsome playstation games (ps1, ps2) that were at their best in its time of release. to simplify it, throwback playstation titles.
the first two playstation throwbacks for those who remember :
EINHANDER May 5, 1998
still waiting on a PLAYSTATION HD REMAKE
BLASTO March 31, 1998
a revival of blasto on the ps4 will bring some nostalgic moments
Blasto is the only game I'm not familiar with in some way. While I've seen Einhander prominently displayed on the shelf near the bargain bin a bunch of times, I never bothered trying the game on for size. Sidescrolling shooters weren't of great interest in those days when RPGs were a much greater dominating force.
This was my first "Father's Day" gift from my oldest boy. Love this game.
It was before analog sticks. So you'd use the D-pad for left stick and the face buttons as right stick. It was the first true "FPS" of its kind with true 360 degree movement and aiming.
Here's the intro and some gameplay. OH YEAH!!!
There are more games I loved on PS though. Wipeout, Road Rash, MGS, GT/GT2, NFS: HP, Crash Bandicoot, Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, Soul Reaver: LoK, DOOM games, Wild Arms, FF7/8, RE1/2/3, Crysis Core, Digimon World, Elemental Gearbolt, Spyro, Ghost in the Shell, CTR, R4, Hot Shots Golf, Caslevania: SotN, Tomb Raiders, Lost Vikings, R-Type Delta, Tekkens, Ace Combat, and the list goes on and on....
