20. Street Fighter Alpha 3
Every fighting game fan—and especially those who align themselves with Capcom—should be very familiar with Street Fighter Alpha 3. This third entry up the ante big time, offering many more characters, a slew of new stages, and some pretty killer music that will have you humming for days. Most importantly however, the gameplay mechanics include an additional layer of depth, working in three different fighting styles.
19. Colony Wars
Pysgnosis brought space combat to the PlayStation in a big way with Colony Wars. This starfighter-centric simulation game allows players to choose from one of seven different vessels, each equipped with its own set of weapons. Interestingly enough, the campaign of Colony Wars features a number of branching paths, meaning that failure to succeed in a particular task may influence the final outcome.
18. Vagrant Story
While Final Fantasy often gets all the attention when it comes to role-playing games on the original PlayStation, there are a handful of others worth your while. Vagrant Story is one such title, boasting a memorable story filled with interesting characters. Gameplay-wise the title stands out by focusing far more on weapon crafting and strategy over more traditional RPG elements. The game was developed by the folks behind Final Fantasy Tactics, so its quality should hardly come as a surprise.
17. Soul Blade
As the precursor to Namco's incredibly popular fighting franchise Soul Calibur, Soul Edge must be commended for laying the groundwork. At that time, 3D fighters that featured weapon-based combat were basically non-existent, so when Soul Edge stepped onto the scene, the variety and depth that such an addition offered was amazing. Honestly, where would the world of fighting games be without the wacky and yet totally disturbing Voldo?
16. Wipeout XL
Before Psygnosis wowed gamers with the aforementioned Colony Wars, the talented studio brought to market Wipeout XL, a futuristic anti-gravity racing game that took high speed races to a whole new level. Nintendo gamers liked to boast about the fact that they had F-Zero to keep them busy, but those on Sony's side of the fence had something quite spectacular of their own. Oh yeah, and there are weapons. Who doesn't like weapons?
