Didn't grow up with one(was old enough just poor fag) but over the last ten or so years I've dabbled in the Playstation library.

My suggestions as an outsider on must plays:
>Ape Escape
>Silent Hill
>RE 1,2, and 3
>Ace Combat 2

That's all I got but again it's must plays and overall I still need to play a bunch mmore.

It's a deranged fanboy making this thread once every month. Replies to himself with weird inorganic lists that are always missing 1/4 of the real must haves so he can make 50 posts without just copypasting the same post to make it look like the PS1 has so many good games that everyone has his own unique top 20, which is obviously nonsense if you don't let nostalgia blind you and don't have clinical shittaste

Relive fixes all of this - but if we're talking about the OG PC version vs the PS1 version, there are no benefits for choosing OG PC except for a small diamond that lets you know when you pass a checkpoint (although some would argue this is immersion-breaking, like we're playing sonic the hedgehog).
