Best Playstation One Games

The Top Ten Best Playstation One Games

1 Metal Gear Solid

Outstanding story and gameplay. I could still play it today and have more fun with it than most games ever created

Such an amazing story, score, character development, fun gameplay. This one has it all.

In my opinion best 3 games for PS1 are: Metal Gear solid, Grand theft auto and Resident evil. MGS is a really good game and it deserves the first place. It is a great game. Everybody should play it! :)))

It was good no very good, but that inclusion of bosses everywhere spoils it and was a really dumb idea - espyorkshireman

2 Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped

Stop voting for Tomb Raider just because Lara Croft is sexy.

The first game I played on playstation! XD The best - Snowflake1992

One of the first I played and for some reason got a demo version of spyro, another great game when I went up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, square.

I made it to the last level but never won it. Probably the best ps1 game ever. - Alpha101

3 Final Fantasy VII

Best FF story, best introduction, best villain, best graphics at the time, best characters, best soundtrack, best mini-games, best side quests, best ending. It's the combination of greatness that makes no. 7 the most beloved FF of all time.

Please, be matures, enough with the "nostalgia feels".

This game was the primary reason I bought the PSX in the first place... along with two memory cards, which at the time, was something that was never needed before. - MovieSounds

this game was great but I got stuck on DISC 2. I heard that the last battle is with an incarnation of sephiroth - lucario411

4 Crash Team Racing

This game is quite fun I have it on ps3 digital, played it a few times - trains45

Probably my most played PS1 game! Great all round, they really need to re-release this for the PS3 with multiplayer online

Excellent Story Mode And Awesome Multi player Fun! Better Then Mario Kart

Favorite ps1 game ever, played it 10 years ago for the first time and even now I play it on pc with emulator

5 Spyro: Year of the Dragon

Unpredictable levels, great stunning spectacle background music, controls are powerful, a must not miss journey with gorgeous and cool graphics. Totally awesome gameplay. So not a typical game. Creative mini games too.

Spyro was the first video game I remember playing, and has remained my favorite franchise 16 years later. This game was my favorite of the series and potentially my favorite game of all time.

Always loved the small but mighty purple dragon-he's my hero! Dreamy landscapes and funny characters like Moneybags!

First spyro game I ever played and the newer ones never come close 8D

6 Crash Bandicoot 2 - Cortex Strikes Back

The only truly great crash game. The first was an average at best Donkey Kong Country rip off, the third was good but had WAY too many different gameplay styles, and the rest range from decent to unplayable.

The greatest game ever!

Better than crash 3

And excellent, addicting, and all-around fun platforming game. - Mcgillacuddy

7 Crash Bandicoot

Not the best, but definitely my favorite!

Always played this taking turns with my siblings. Very fun.

The best video game ever made

Loved all crash games

8 Tomb Raider

Metal Gear Solid number one?! That's messed up... Tomb Raider is awesome! It has an amazing soundtrack, one of the most memorable video game characters in history is your main character, and the gameplay is the best I have ever seen. TOMB RAIDER FOREVER!

I love India and some country are good and some country are bad.

I always loved locking the butler in the freezer in 2 and 3. - Ramses1017

This should be 1

9 Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Why is this so low on this list? Top 3 for sure.

a classic

Not the best Castlevania in my opinion, but the best for PS1

4th favorite game of all time and second favorite Metroidvania game. I think you can guess who is above it, but it's a classic nonetheless. The atmosphere, gameplay, and music (oh my lord that glorious music) makes for such an awesome game. - Jmaniac1

10 Tekken 3

My very first fighting game, brings back so many memories. I wish the tekken series went back to the way it use to be...

There were far too many top Playstation 1 games, so it's really hard to choose the best one, but I wouldn't be surprised if Tekken 3 is the #1. Tekken 3 is one of the best fighting games of all-time let alone on Playstation 1. - Minforever1

It was so good more like so god, had awesome graphics for its time and should defiantly stay at number 1

Its one from the best games in ps1 the best fighting game in all the world

The Contenders

11 Spyro the Dragon

When My Son Darius was 4 years old I Introduced him to the Game Spyro The Dragon. And About 2 minutes of me showing him how to play the game. He Rammed Spyro's head against a wall and Darius would burst out laughing. He Still plays it after 15 years

I like cried when I broke the disc -

Thanks for introducing me to video games, spyro the dragon. - Thepenguinking2

I loved playing Spyro when I was little. I even played The Legend of Spyro games. It's been a while since I played them, but this was the first game I have ever played. Too bad they don't make anymore.

12 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2

Not the best level in tony hawk games

The music is good for this game

I like the original bet more

This game not bad, can be fun do tricks and stuff - trains45

13 Silent Hill

Sequels all fall well short. One of a kind. Genuinely scary. The Japanese are the only ones who can make good horror games.

The scariest game in the PSX world!

The best horror game ever in my opinion.

Very cool game for it's time

14 Gran Turismo

The graphics for this game were OUTSTANDING to say it mildly. Add to that some extremely good car control, and it was clear Sony had a winner on their hands with this game. Still one of my favorite PSX games.

The game that blew us all way with its graphical level, and its unbelievable gxx engine, it was a dream to play, for thanks ps1 this game was near perfection, and in my opinion ALL the NFS games have eaten it's dust

In fact this game is probably the godfather of driving simulators and when we all realised hey it was actually really good fun to mimic reality - espyorkshireman

This is my most favorite PS1 game ever - Fullwalking

Its very fun - VideoGamefan5

15 Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage

My favourite out of the trilogy

The most enjoyable game on the PS1. While Spyro 1 has another engine and Spyro 3 has multiple playable characters half the game, Spyro 2 has a perfect engine and has all Spyro in it.

Why is this not first place it is the best ps1 game and it was my childhood and I'm still playing it on my ps3

Spyro had the best gameplay platform on the PlayStation 1 ever. Toe to toe with the Bandicoot!

16 Mortal Kombat Trilogy

Should be in the top 3. At least I think so. Very cool and entertaining game. Friendship thing was so funny. And Animality was cool. Awesome game! Vote for it please - Magnolia


Amazing game. Awesome characters and fatalities

It is so nostlagic... I think it deserve to be in top5

17 Resident Evil 2

I like this one more than resident evil 3 nemesis because it has a much better atmosphere and the story is more interesting and there aren't that may disgusting monsters as in re4 or 3

I've finished this game more times than any other. A close second is Castlevania SOTN

The best resident evil game for ps1

18 Gran Turismo 2

I think it's so fantastic,it should be number 1.

This is a really good racing game - B1ueNew

This REALLY deserves to be higher on this list. - LordOfTheOnionRings

19 MediEvil

Awesome game

This game was amazing as a kid

20 Tekken 2

Tekken 2 is a along with SF2 Turbo and way of the exploding fist absolute masters and godfathers of the beatem up genre...screw crash sonic mario and the feckking rest.. - espyorkshireman

Best of the combat games in my humble opinion, the secret apart from the smoother gameplay was it's speed which was fast enough th flow, but not so fas that it became a button basher, it was a skillfull duel, and the variety of moves the charaxters had had you coming back for mor, which is also why when you had some buddies around this game was exceptional entertainment and provided many peoplee I know with probably 1000's oh hours ofcompetitive fun...what a wonderful game - espyorkshireman

21 Mega Man X5

One of the best Megaman X games

22 Pac-Man World

I can't believe this game is getting so much hate. Why do people hate it?! THIS MAKES ME VERY MAD!

Played pacman wood 2 and I liked it in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

This video game deserves the top 1 spot. Of course all the video games in the top 10s of this list are fantastic, but Pac-Man World is the work of God! So this game belongs in at least top 5.

Pac-Man World was re-released for Game Boy Advance in 2004. - playstationfan66

23 Resident Evil

The game from our childhoods that either scared us senselessly or caused uncontrolled leakages. Though it hasn't aged well, it's still one of my favourite games on the original PlayStation.

This game has to be in the top 5 I mean it really had a great storyline


Are you kidding me? This is the best game of the PlayStation 1 history

This is an amazing game, if only the voice acting was decent.

24 Grand Theft Auto

Mgs great storyline but for groundbreaking gameplay has to be this


25 Mega Man X4
26 Final Fantasy VI
27 Twisted Metal

Love this game was hard as hell to get through but really good

This game should be higher

28 Chrono Cross

All time classic

The best game ever to be created by any man. You guys are dumb if you don't think so.

Best video game of all time

This is my favorite game of psx, and the game with the best Soundtrack of all video games. And I love Kid

29 Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus

An amazing and innovative platformer that was different from the competition!

Really weird game noise. but awesome never-the-less. - Persian

30 Ape Escape

This game has a great and unique storyline. It is one of the best time travel games ever in my personal opinion.

How is this game not in the top 10 part of this list?

31 Spider-Man

I remember playing this on my cousin's PSX at age 3. I moved on to the sixth generation owning a PS2 and V-Smile( back when I was younger). - peaceswagtv


32 NASCAR 99
33 Yu-gi-oh!: Forbidden Memories

Best yugioh game ever. Wished it would be on ps3

34 Grand Theft Auto 2

Grand Theft Auto 2 is a VERY underrated game, possibly the most underrated of all time! The term "hidden gem" is such an understatement.

35 Cool Boarders 2
36 Command & Conquer Red Alert
37 Crash Bash

The funniest and best party game I've ever played.

Best party game on PlayStation

It's an awesome game

38 Resident Evil 3: Nemesis

Best survival horror in PSX world! In Resident Evil 2... We know that Leon and Claire escaped the Racoon City... Now in Resident Evil 3... Jill Valentine will step into the world of zombies including her worst enemy Nemesis! It has also in Dreamcast not only in PS1...

This game is a masterpiece. This should be number one!

39 UFO: Enemy Unknown

Fantastic strategy game.

40 Final Fantasy Tactics

This is the best serie of Final Fantasy world!

41 Xenogears

Everything else step aside. Please give three hours to this game and thank me later

91st place? Seriously?

42 Medal of Honor

This IS the greatest PS1 game of all time.

The godfather of all the Medal of Honor games! 20 plus awesome levels, great music and storyline, so fun to play! Should be in the top 15 at least!

First war game I ever played. Classic -

Just got this game its all right

43 Final Fantasy 8

Very underrated. My favorite Final Fantasy up to date.

Should be number 1, greatest game of all times

I played on FF8 for more than 150 hours, and I'm still looking to play it. Incredible drama and very immersive game.

44 Syphon Filter 2

The best of the trilogy

45 NHL 99
46 Mortal Kombat 4
47 Street Fighter Alpha 3
48 Hot Wheels Turbo
49 Need for Speed: High Stakes
50 UmJammer Lammy

Honestly my favorite from the parappa series. It’s great fun with some challenging songs and fantastic music

I'm honestly surprised at how far down parappa is on the list, and I'm even more surprised at the fact that this is higher. I'm pretty sure this is my favorite parappa game.

Okay, between this and the original PTR, this is easily the better game of the two by a landslide. Seriously, don't be fooled by its looks - xandermartin98
