There are many great games available for PlayStation. Not all of them are necessarily exclusive to the PlayStation, but we will only list those that are. These games are some of the best on the PlayStation, and there are many more to come. We hope you enjoy this list:
- Metal Gear Solid
Metal Gear Solid was created by Hideo Kojima, a franchise of stealth video games, with Konami as its developer and publisher. The first game of the series, Metal Gear, was released in 1987 for the MSX home computer platform. The player takes over a special forces operative assigned in finding the “Metal Gear.“ The titular superweapon is a bipedal, walking tank capable of launching nuclear weapons. Since then, the series has expanded into various portable devices, such as the Sony PSP, Nintendo GameCube, and the Nintendo 3DS.
- Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was the first Castlevania game to hit the PlayStation, and it is widely considered to be one of the best games on the console. In this game, you play Alucard, Dracula’s son, as you attempt to stop Dracula from destroying the world. To do this, you must explore Dracula’s castle. You will find that the castle is filled with all sorts of monsters and bosses to defeat.
- Final Fantasy 7
Twenty years ago, Squaresoft released one of the most important videogames of all time: Final Fantasy VII. While it didn’t quite revolutionize the industry in the same way as the original Final Fantasy for NES, it did usher in a new era for Squaresoft. Its influence on the gaming industry is still being felt today. The game is still played today, with the PC version being especially popular since it sports higher-resolution character sprites and a remixed soundtrack.
- Resident Evil 2
When you think of Resident Evil, you think survival horror; you think of zombies, monsters, claustrophobic hallways, and dark rooms. Resident Evil 2 is no different, except now you’re fighting flesh-eating zombies and even nastier monsters with a friend.
Introduced in 1998, Resident Evil 2 was prominent in that introduced a second-player character, and it’s this scenario that makes Resident Evil 2 so memorable. You see, Resident Evil 2 follows Leon on his quest to rescue the President’s daughter, Ashley, from a cult of living dead. The problem is, he arrives at the scene too late – she has already been kidnapped.
- Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2
Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2 is a game that lets players skate and perform tricks on various half-pipes and other skateboarding-friendly structures. The game is a follow-up to the 2000 game, Tony Hawks Pro Skater, which became a massive hit early in the PlayStation’s life.
When the first Tony Hawks was released back in 1999, skateboarding games were very scarce. In fact, most of the competitions that Tony Hawks faced were kart racing games like Mario Cart. This made the game a bit more popular than it would have been if it had faced stiffer competition.
- Tekken 3
The third installment in the “Tekken” series, “Tekken 3” (PlayStation, 1998), is a fighting game developed by Namco and distributed by Sony. It is the initial game of the series to include 3D characters and stages. The game features a total of 20 playable characters, each with unique moves. The battles take place in stages based on actual locations, such as a dojo, a church, and a castle.
- Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped
The Crash Bandicoot series is a platform video game series published by Sony Computer Entertainment and developed by Naughty Dog. It is named after the series’ titular bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot, who was the first character created for the series. Get ready to put your gaming skills to the test with this Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped Walkthrough.
- Gran Turismo 2
The idea behind Gran Turismo 2 was to bring virtually every aspect that made the series a success to the PSX. This meant, of course, tons of new cars, realistic physics, and a whole host of other stuff. The game did what it could to make sure players once again stayed interested, and it did this mainly by adding a whopping new mode, the “Arcade mode.”
This mode allowed players to take part in quick races, many of which could be completed in under one minute. It may not have been the best way to play the game, but it was great for getting your fix in quickly.
- Silent Hill
When Silent Hill was released in October 1999, it was unlike anything that had been seen before. Sure, one could argue that Resident Evil invented the genre, but Silent Hill perfected it. Both games were set in creepy small towns, had you searching for keys, finding maps, solving puzzles, and fighting monsters, but Silent Hill took things a step further. The town of Silent Hill was more than just the setting. It was a character in the game. In Silent Hill, everything was foggy, dark, and the shadows hid so much.
- PaRappa The Rapper
Nowadays, rhythm games are nowhere near as popular as they once were, but the genre is still alive and kicking, and Japan is very much a part of its success. One of the most interesting rhythm games to come out in recent years is Parappa the Rapper, a quirky gem that is both addictive and challenging.
- WipEout 2097
The game is the second in the WipEout game series and a sequel to WipEout. It was released exclusively for the PlayStation in Europe and North America in October 1996 and in Japan and Australia the following month.
It was later released as a launch title for the PlayStation Network on the PlayStation 3 console in Japan in December 2006, in North America and Europe in August 2007, and in Australia in September 2007.
WipEout 2097 is set in the year 2097, and the players’ race on several tracks set in locations around the world, including the cities of London and Rome. It is also the first game
- Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
If you were to go looking for the best PlayStation games of all time, you would find many lists that agree on one thing: Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee is one of the best games ever made for the Playstation.
The game was released in 1997, back when 3D graphics were still in their infancy. Despite this, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee was deep, original, and gorgeous, and it remains beloved to this day.
- Tomb Raider
Tomb Raider is one of the greatest platform gaming series of all time. The games are based around the adventures of Lara Croft, the daughter of an archaeologist who likes to loot tombs.
Unlike her father, Lara is more interested in exploring the tombs and collecting relics than she is in taking them out of the country.
- Spyro The Dragon
While the Spyro games were not the first to offer three-dimensional graphics, the Spyro series has been regarded by many as one of the best 3D platformers in video game history.
The Spyro series is noted for being a successful mixture of platforming, action, adventure, and open-world exploration. This has led the series to become one of the most popular of its genre.
- Vagrant Story
The most notable feature of Vagrant Story is its spectacular battle system, which mixes turn-based combat with real-time elements. In this way, it’s similar to the classic Final Fantasy games, but with more emphasis on action and strategy.
- Driver: You Are The Wheelman
The Driver series has been top-down racing action for as long as I can remember. It’s also been one of those franchises that were relegated to consoles in the past but never made it to the PC. The long-running series got a modern-day facelift and a new name in Driver: San Francisco. Thankfully, this title is actually playable on the PC. Driver: San Francisco takes place in an open-world setting, with the player controlling a variety of vehicles, whether by driving, crashing, or even jumping.
- Time Crisis
It is a first-person shooter, but it is played from an over-the-shoulder perspective, unlike most FPS games. The player is tasked with shooting down an endless variety of enemies entering the screen from the left or right and exiting the screen from the opposite side. As the enemies close in, the player must shoot them before they reach the middle of the screen.
- Twisted Metal 2:World Tour
This is a racing game developed by SingleTrac and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 2. It is the sequel to Twisted Metal: Black and is the second game in the Twisted Metal series.
- Final Fantasy Tactics
This is a strategy game from Square, the creators of Final Fantasy. Its turn-based gameplay is fairly similar to that of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. It was originally released on the PlayStation in 1999.
- Ridge Racer Type 4
Ridge Racer Type 4 is the fourth game in the Ridge Racer series of the original PlayStation. It features a unique “point-to-point” career mode where the player drives from one location to another, passing by other cars. The game introduces the “X-Drive” feature, which allows the driver to shift gears faster than in previous games.
