GameRevolution's Top 25 PlayStation Games Of All Time (Full List)

Posted on Friday, August 9 @ 13:32:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
After dominating the market with the NES and SNES, Nintendo created quite a formidable foe by backpedaling on its proposed partnership with Sony to make a disc-based gaming platform. The Big N went on to make the Nintendo 64, while Sony took a bold step in the gaming ring with the PlayStation. The disc-powered console went on to make quite a dent in the gaming market, capturing the hearts and minds of consumers looking for variety and unbelievable creativity. Despite the fact that it was Sony's first time in the gaming space, it managed to more than hold its own thanks to such a quality library of software. Let's take a look at the best of the best as we count down the top 25 games to grace the platform.



25. Syphon Filter

Stealth-action titles were going through some serious growing pains during the PSone era—and in many respects still are—so when Syphon Filter hit the scene back in 1999, there was a lot to love about Eidetic Studios' impressive third-person shooter. While the gameplay and visuals may feel quite a bit outdated today, at the time they were quite impressive. Couple that with an interesting plot with some serious depth and you've got a great stealth experience that was only outmatched in its genre by one other PlayStation title, which we'll get to much, much later.



24. PaRappa the Rapper

Those looking for unique need look no further than PaRappa the Rapper, a music-rhythm game developed by NanaOn-Sha. In fantastic Japanese style, the game is totally wacky and out there, yet at the same time insanely endearing. PaRappa is about a rapping dog (coincidentally) named PaRappa who (coincidentally) raps. The game has an incredibly unique visual style and features a slew of music that is just as out there. If you're looking for something off the beaten path, this is the title for you.



23. Ape Escape

As the first game to make use of the console's dual analog control option, Ape Escape turned quite a few heads when it launched in '99. In it you play as Spike, a guy who must go on a quest through time to stop an evil monkey named Specter. This evil ape is equipped with a special helmet that gives him an abnormal level of intelligence, and as such, he has taken it upon himself to rewrite history by creating an army of helmet-equipped monkeys and sending them back in time. Needless to say, it's a charming platformer that can't be taken too seriously.



22. Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus

Continuing the trend of "odd" titles that truly make the PlayStation library one of the most diverse in gaming history, Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus is all about being different. Heck, just check out the main character. This puzzle-platforming sequel took everything that was great about its predecessor, Abe's Oddysee, and delivered it in a quality package that also included a wonderfully helpful quick-save feature. Fans of something a bit more cerebral and totally out there need to give the Oddworld series a look, and Abe's ; should be your first stop.



21. Twisted Metal 2

Another perfect example of a great sequel is Twisted Metal 2, a car combat game that is heavy on explosions. Those with a soft spot for blowing things up can find a lot to love in the Twisted Metal games, especially its multiplayer mode, which pits players against each other in various combat arena with the simple goal of being the last car still standing. Speeding around the terrain while blasting your pals into heaps of scrap metal provided so many gamers with endless hours of sheer gaming joy.
