What's your favorite PS1 game? photo
What's your favorite PS1 game?
by Steven Hansen

The PlayStation 20th anniversary that spawned this limited edition, PS1-themed PS4 continues its nostalgia fest over at the PlayStation Blog, where developers like Tim Schafer (Double Fine), Neil Druckmann (Naughty Dog), and Keiji Inafune (Comcept) looking back at their favorite PS1 games.

Bless OlliOlli's creative director John Ribbins and Towerfall's Matt Thorson for the Bushido Blade inclusion. One of the PS1 games I still play on occasion. 

Snakes in the mail for everyone, though, because no one mentioned MediEvil (or Gundam Battle Assault 2) amidst mainstays like PaRappa the Rapper, Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, and Final Fantasy VII. And Final Fantasy Tactics and Symphony of the Night and Tomb Raider and, look, there are a lot of good PS1 games. 

What about you folks? What PS1 games do you remember with fondness?

How does 900 classic arcade games in your browser sound?

Fancy the greatest classic gaming selection of all time? It's not at some fabled arcade where the sound of dropping quarters and eight-bit music drowns out the dimmed oldies rock station playing over the worn out speakers. No...

Get nostalgic for Portland Retro Gaming Expo with these lovely photos

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, perhaps you attended the fifth annual Portland Retro Gaming Expo which took place the weekend before last. If you didn't, well -- here's a lovely pile of photos that the talented Geoffrey Smith II was kind enough to take for us at this celebration of gaming from the days of yore, featuring cosplayers, special guests, and lots of games that require you to insert coins and/or blow on them to make them work.
