My Top PlayStation Games
Leading up to the release on the PlayStation Classic, I was hearing mostly bad things. Unfortunately, this didn’t change after the mini console’s release and it left me feeling disappointed. The PlayStation was a huge part of my childhood and gave me a lot of great memories and experiences. I had a strong urge to see the original console one more time and to talk about some of those games, memories and experiences. So, I decided I would go fetch my original PlayStation out of the loft and do some reminiscing by telling you about some of my favourite games for the PlayStation.
This will be talking about the PlayStation games that I still own. Some of my favourite games on this system were either traded in, borrowed from a friend or lent out and never given back. I’ll talk about the games that I no longer own in another post.
The Muppets Monster Adventure
I don’t think this game is well known. It’s in my top games because of the amount of time I actually spent playing it. I remember that you were able to transform yourself so that you are able to do things, like climbing walls and swimming. A simple platformer that doesn’t bring anything extraordinary to the genre but will keep you entertained nonetheless.
This is not the only Muppet’s game I have played. There was a FANTASTIC game on the PC which I will have to talk about at another time.
Micro Maniacs is an amazing racing game where you control characters with varying abilities as they race around common, real world stages. There only thing… They are tiny! You are running through a garden in one stage and all of the garden tools look huge compared to your characters. I remember playing this with my friends and it was so much fun seeing all of the different abilities the characters can use to gain an advantage on everyone else. It was always good fun to try and unlock characters and stages and I thought the character designs were awesome!
Final Fantasy IX
Of course I was going to include Final Fantasy IX! Final Fantasy IX is my favourite game of all time and the first I played from the Final Fantasy series. A JRPG that is so fun and light-hearted, but can still hit you with serious moments that draw you so deeply into the characters. Released at the height of the golden age of the genre, truly the culmination of many years of trial and error and tweaking the game systems that make this so incredible to play.
If you are a fan of turn-based JRPGs then this is definitely one to try out.
Digimon World 2003
I was a huge fan of Digimon when I was growing up. I would also be daring enough to say that I enjoyed it just as much as Pokémon. The first Digimon world game wasn’t the most exciting game I had played and it had a confusing battle system which didn’t make me feel like I was too involved. Digimon World 2003, however, blew me away when I jumped into it! As a fan of turn-based JRPGs, the battle system for this game really hooked me as it was familiar yet still challenging.
Look out in the future because I will be doing a playthrough of this on my YouTube channel.
Rayman is one of the best platformers for the PlayStation. Its cartoon style graphics and vibrant colours just make you want to go through all of the levels and collect everything you can. It’s so great when you get a new ability which allows you to collect items that you couldn’t before in earlier stages. The levels progress at a steady pace and challenge you more and more as the game goes on.
Rayman holds a special place in my heart for many reasons. I’ll dive deeper into these in a future post.
