I was playing my PS3 the other day, more specifically the PS1 c lassics. This got me thinking about all of the games I grew up with that got me into gaming in the first place. Hereare the top 5 games of that console.
This game holds a special place in my heart as the first real game out of my age group since the games I played at the time were all E rated. And I never looked back. I loved the atmosphere of the game. It was like nothing I'd played at that point and it was a bit of a shock to the system but regardless I was hooked from the start as this 5 year old died repeatedly trying to swing a sword at these scary zombies. I have gone back and played the game right since.
4- Spyro The Dragon
The game that started my second favorite franchise. Spyro the Dragon takes the honor of being the first video game I ever played. Not just on the PS1 but in general. I will always be greatful to this franchise for throwing me into the gaming fray.
3- Crash Bash
This was the game me and my friends would play together for hours straight. I had been a Bandicoot fan since my first experience with video games that can be seen later on the list and this one was just so much fun to play that I will always remember it.
2-Spyro Year of the Dragon
What can I say about this game. It was the first time I had ever worked so hard to be a completionist and find every egg and gem to truly beat the game. Aside from this, this was the game in the series with the best story and level variations. I was also very fond of so many minigames to play throughout as well as all of the new characters.
1- Crash Bandicoot WARPED
Like I said, my favorite franchise of all time and it was truly proven with the third installment and by far the best of the PS1 era. This was the second game I ever played after Spyro. I still remember unboxing my system at 5 years old and getting Spyro and this game and having the best time playing it. Aside from what I played first, this game qwill always hold that special spot in my heart as the highlight of my time with the PS1.
I hope you liked my trip down memory lane. So what did all of you like best from the PS1?
