Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 strikes a perfect balance between new and old and renders the two previous entries in the series almost completely obsolete in the process.
Madden NFL 2002
The game manages to one-up last year's Madden in most categories.
Dino Crisis 2
Dino Crisis 2 avoids the stereotypes of the genre and delivers one of the most refreshing takes on the third-person action shooter to date.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
As most major publishers' development efforts shift to any number of next-generation platforms, Tony Hawk 2 will likely stand as one of the last truly fantastic games to be released on the PlayStation.
Madden NFL 2001
The flaws in the passing and running game prevent Madden 2001 from being completely enjoyable or realistic.
Chrono Cross may not have had the largest budget, but it has the largest heart.
While a fairly short game, the depth and density of the story and gameplay contained in Vagrant Story give it an intensity missing from most longer games.
The game has great sound effects and an absolutely amazing soundtrack, featuring songs from artists such as Jurassic 5, GZA, Dr. Octagon, X-Ecutioners, NOFX, and Black Flag.
Guitar Freaks Append 2nd Mix
While the original Guitar Freaks has addictive qualities that imbue it with a nearly ungodly amount of replay value, adding 2nd Mix to it really makes the series more complete.

Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver

Madden NFL 2000
Fans of the series will undoubtedly call Madden NFL 2000 the best incarnation of the series thus far.
Metal Gear Solid Integral
If there were any justice, Konami would just bite the bullet and release it as is for the American public.
While it may not be an original concept, the game is truly greater than the sum of its many parts.
Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus
If you hated the first one, it's likely because of the lack of save points, so you should definitely consider giving this series another try.
Xenogears' reliance on story, subtlety, and mood make it Square's most anime-like RPG thus far, in many ways making the game one of its best.

Never before have technology, playability, and narrative combined as well as in Final Fantasy VII.
