Hey guys, i was recently cleaning my closet and found my old ps1 along with a bunch of pirated cds circa 1999-2000, the memory card didn't work for shit and some cds were all fucked up but i managed to find some that were working, now im sitting here with 4 games and a working ps1 with a modchip.

What are some essential ps1 games to have? I have a lots of 700mb disks i can burn.

Also, the only working games i have are tony hawk 1 & 2, rayman 2 and worms armageddon, out of like, 40 something games.

I know tomb raider, spyro, crash, FFVII, medievil, megaman legends and the tronn bone game are musts, but, what else?

As long as we're on the original PlayStation, I remember a disc sold somewhere that allows simply booting up the PS1, waiting for the menu to load up, and then swapping the disc for a CD-R or imported game.

I don't want modchips and I don't want to fool the machine into thinking the door on the drive is open. Does anyone know what this thing is called?

Got the formatting as well as game transfer from the old chart done. Thinking I might have to rethink the tab sizes since even this much is just barely under the 8MB limit at 89% of the original file's quality (more used to what charts I've done so far having the cover width be a fair bit smaller than the height, thus able to fit more games in the same space).

Anyhow, if anyone wants to make some suggestions for more games to add that are currently still missing, or if you can by chance find and post better cover/manual art scans for some of them that aren't exactly up to par (preferably at 250 pixels or more in width, unfaded US ones where possible; trying to keep things more cohesive overall), that would be helpful.

that shit's the least yu-gi-oh game out of all the yu-gi-oh games, basically threw away all the dueling rules and and monster abilities, it ended up being a non-polimerization fusion fuckfest of twin-headed thunder dragons.

also, getting actually good cards required you to grind the fuck out by dueling the shitty low tier dudes for stars or whatever shit it was, and the "good" cards were like several tens of thousand stars. unless you were lucky and got meteor b. dragon from whatever the fuck his name was.

or just using gameshark, which killed the fun.

in a nutshell, the game was poopoo

I don't mind adding licensed games if they're actually good (and from what I've seen the PS1 had a fair number of those that were; should probably also add Toy Story 2). I've heard good things about both PS1 Harry Potter games so I'll add those to a list of things to add. Still, I'm not sure about that Yu-gi-oh game. That's not saying I won't consider adding it further down the line. I mean if it's actually fun and other people can vouch for it, sure (I understand not every game is one everyone can enjoy), but most of what I've heard of it makes it sound like a rather frustrating experience (such as the game blatantly cheating, if I remember correctly), and not exactly in the enjoyable way.

It may not be essential, but one of my favorite PS1 games is Threads of Fate. I'd call it the best localized and written game from Square Soft, even if it's not a complex or high concept game, it's just very well done, it's light hearted, fun, and has great visuals.

Well, here in the US (I figure things might be a bit similar), prices vary. I think I got my fat maybe five years back (sure doesn't feel like it was that long back) for about $40, and the slims were $30 or so at the time. Not exactly sure what they're at these days, but I might have seen some fats a while back for $50 or so at game focused stores. PS2s are really fucking common though, so chances are you can find them a lot cheaper at pawn shops or goodwill/savers or whatever your equivalent is there (yard sales might be a decent possibility too). That does leave at issue though of whether the system will work in the first place or if you've wasted your time/money though; I think some of the more game-focused stores can get away with charging a bit more since they're more prone to testing systems and potentially replacing now faulty parts before putting them out for sale (depends on the store of course; my favorite one even offers a year long refund/replacement policy if a system they sold breaks on you), and I don't exactly have the best faith in places that don't specialize in media to actually make sure the stuff they put out works, or has all the cords needed. Just my thoughts on it.

I'd also recommend doing some research into which PS1 and PS2 games you're aiming to play on it before settling on what model of system to get; There's some differences between the Fat and Slim models, and while compatibility for most games should be fine, some have issues on particular models to my knowledge. Here's this; used to know of a more indepth list but it seems like it got purged from the web (it was an old forum post somewhere; thread might have finally been deleted):

I've honestly been debating on how to handle those, considering Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen is in English on both the SNES and PS1 while Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together has the SFC version fan translated and native PS1 and PSP releases. I really don't see that much discussion on any of them but the PSP version of LUCT (which seems to get a lot of love from people); as such, I'm not really sure as to how the various versions of them compare with each other. If all of them are worthwhile for their own systems, I'd be happy to put both of the PS1 versions up for those, but some people have rather vocal against bothering with including games on these that are either worse than a prior version of the game, or that have a better version on a newer system.

The "final" Front Mission 2 English Patch was sadly not only a partial patch due to technical difficulties, but it also introduced some bugs, most notably missing sound in FMVs and some distorted sound effects.

This fix of the English Patch aims to remedy this and some other issues as well.
