FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

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

Posted on Friday, August 9 @ 13:32:00 PST by Alex_Osborn



10. Gran Turismo

Racing games were changed forever when Gran Turismo came onto the scene in the late 90s. Polyphony Digital's racing simulator raised the bar for the genre, serving up the most authentic driving experience at the time. Since then the series has gone on to be one of the most important and profitable franchises for Sony. Consumers will purchase a PlayStation console just to play Gran Turismo and the original GT started it all.



9. Suikoden II


Role-playing fanatics hail Suikoden II as one of the PlayStation's finest gems. This JRPG from Konami is heavy on characters, and when I say heavy, I mean heavy. With a virtually countless cast of playable characters and many more that all push the game's engrossing plot forward, it's difficult not to get wrapped up in the world of Suikoden II. With a nice blend of strategy and action, there's plenty here for those looking for a quality gameplay experience as well.



8. Tomb Raider

The famous Lara Croft made her triumphant debut on the PlayStation 1 in expert fashion. Sure, the visuals and controls may not hold up all that well today, but the iconic tomb-raiding heroine made quite an impact on the gaming community and has become one of the most recognizable characters the industry has ever seen. With a nice blend of action, exploration, and puzzle solving, Tomb Raider blazed a trail forward for the future of action adventure games.



7. Xenogears

Xenogears is one of those rare role-playing games that pushed mechanics and storytelling to new heights thanks to Squaresoft's ingenious and bold decisions in creative design. This sci-fi JRPG deals with heavy and complex themes, tackling topics regarding religion, machine vs. man, and many others. With so many colorful characters and themes, there's a lot here for analytical gamers to chew on. Oh yeah, and the gameplay is quite great too, thanks to its dual-layered combat system.

6. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater

Activision stumbled upon something huge when Neversoft created Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, an arcade-y skateboarding game that took the world by storm. The trick-based system hit all the right notes, making for one of the most enjoyable and addictive gameplay experiences available on the PSone. Naturally the game went on to spawn many, many sequels, which served to mark the beginning of Activision's franchise-milking legacy.
