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

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


5. Final Fantasy Tactics

Tactics games don't get much better than this. In addition to the trio of traditional Final Fantasy JRPGs that launched on the original PlayStation, Squaresoft crafted a tactical strategy title that was downright magical. Final Fantasy Tactics has 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 played Tekken 3 many, 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 earn Tekken 3 such 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 Night proves 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 play SotN. It's just that simple.



2. Metal Gear Solid

In addition to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the original Metal Gear Solid is 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 about Solid Snake's first outing on PlayStation hardware.



1. Final Fantasy VII

Much like how Halo: Combat Evolved made Microsoft's Xbox relevant in the gaming space, Final Fantasy VII solidified 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.
