5. Final Fantasy Tactics
Tactics games don't get much better than this. In addition to the trio of traditional Final FantasyJRPGs that launched on theoriginal PlayStation, Squaresoft crafted a tactical strategy title that was downright magical.Final Fantasy Tacticshas an incredibly deep and intriguing narrative, a slew of characters you actually care about, and a deep, engrossing gameplay system that will test your strategy skills. Oh, and that music...
4. Tekken 3
I don't like fighting games. I just don't. But I will never forget the first time I playedTekken 3many, many years ago on a friend's PlayStation. I was a Nintendo 64 kid so I was rather ignorant on Sony's console, but I had so much fun playing this game—which I thought I would totally hate—that I seriously considered picking up Sony's console after that gameplay session. The fact that a game in a genre I generally dislike managed to win my heart is reason enougt to earnTekken 3such a high spot on this list. It's an incredible fighting game with excellent controls. If it can make me a believer, this game will win over any gamer.
3. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
During the PS1 era, developers were focused on making 3D experiences first and foremost. However, Konami decided to tap into the power of Sony's console in a very different way, by making what is arguably the most incredible 2D action game ever.Castlevania: Symphony of the Nightproves that it's not all about pushing polygons, especially when you've got incredible level design and pitch-perfect gameplay to back it up. Everyone must playSotN. It's just that simple.
2. Metal Gear Solid
In addition toThe Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the originalMetal Gear Solidis the reason I write about games for a living. Taking storytelling and in-game production values to an entirely new level, Kojima basically revolutionized the way video games tell stories. With an engrossing plot, some of the most memorable characters in gaming, and a clever approach to stealth, there's so much to love aboutSolid Snake's first outing on PlayStation hardware.
1. Final Fantasy VII
Much like howHalo: Combat Evolvedmade Microsoft's Xbox relevant in the gaming space,Final Fantasy VIIsolidified Sony's platform against competitors like Nintendo and Sega. Squaresoft's first 3D entry in its popular role-playing franchise failed to disappoint, delivering one of the most memorable stories you will ever experience across any platform. The buster sword-wielding, spikey-haired protagonist is one of the most adored heroes in gaming. There's a reason why fans are clamoring for an HD remake.
