    Post your top [​IMG] PSX [​IMG] games, and i will add them to this list.

    Also, post your avoidables list aswell.

    if a game is in the unavodables, its a + if in the avoidables then a - . therefore, if a game has been voted into each, ill minus the avoidables from the unavoidables.

    EG XZY got 2 +
    but XYZ has 1 -
    therefore XYZ has 1 + overall.

    Medal of Honour, the first one is amazing. I prefer it to Goldeneye even though multiplayer sucks on it.

    Lets see...

    Final Fantasy VII, VIII, IX (And I don't care who disagrees with me VIII is the best. End of!)
    Dance Dance Revolution 3rd/4th/5th Mix (JP)
    Crash Bandicoot 1-3
    Parappa the Rapper
    Un Jammer Lammy
    Soul Blade
    Final Fantasy Tactics
    Vandal Hearts I/II
    Klonoa: Door to Phantomile
    Spyro the Dragon 1-3
    Vagrant Story
    Castlevania SOTN
    Kula World (aka. Roll Away)
    Tekken 3
    Metal Gear Solid
    Dead or Alive
    Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2
    Heart of Darkness
    Vib Ribon
    Time Crisis
    Gran Turismo 1/2
    Driver
    Mickey's Wild Adventure
    Bubble Bobble featuring Rainbow Island
    Lemmings and Oh No! More Lemmings (Okay the last two are ports/updates of old games but they are very good ones at that!)

    I Also loved Bomberman on the Playstation... I can't remember what one it was though I think it was just called 'Bomberman' over here? It came on a demo disc and had a lot of stages on there so we never bothered to buy the game!

    p.s Didn't vote for any 2D fighters because much better ports are available on Saturn/DC/PS2/MAME.

    Hurrah! [​IMG]

    Final Fantasy 7-9
    Tomb Raider II (it's got a little bit extra than the first one, without the trial-and-error mess that is TR3)
    Crash Bandicoot 3
    Bust a Move 2 (same as all the others, but everyone needs a silly multiplayer [​IMG])

    Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee was good but a bit too hard, not sure if I'd put it on this list or not.
