For the sake of conversation, here's a baker's dozen more lesser known, but still good, PS1 action games:

Added Love & Destroy to wishlist. :lol:

I need to beef up my PSX RPG set. I have maybe 1/3-1/2 of the ones released in North America. I'd still like to get Vagrant Story, Battle Hunter, Guardian's Crusade, Beyond the Beyond, Dragon Valor, Hoshigami: Ruining Blue Earth, Shadow Tower, Tales of Destiny II, and Vandal Hearts II....... plus a pile of imports. May get a few of these on PSN to save some dough. Unlike, say, the SNES and Saturn I really have no desire to get all the RPGs available. Some I have no interest in, and others I just prefer to play on another console.

5th gen is where I start to play RPGs 90% of the time, with the other 10% being the remaining 2D platformers and whatnot.

Vagrant Story is lovely.

Thanks for the recs Ex! I've actually not heard of any of those, aside Little Ralph and Rapid Reload, and even those I haven't played. Got some gaming to do!

I guess I'm the odd man out. I didn't like Vagrant Story. It really failed to hook me.

I thought Vagrant Story was great. One of the most graphically impressive games on the system, and that localization was superb.

Along those lines, I still highly recommend Parasite Eve as well. Similar battle system, but more movie-oriented than VS.

Since Bone mentioned platformers, I'll suggest a few lesser known decent ones:

If you enjoy Metal Slug (and Rapid Reload) don't miss the CT Special Forces series:

The Adventures of Little Ralph should go in that list too, but I already mentioned it earlier.

Bone, I think you'd really like Breath of Fire IV. Along with Suikoden 1-2, these all feel pretty 5th gen too.

I like the two Parasite Eve games a lot, but always drop off after a few hours admittedly. The first feels too much like Vagrant Story light, and the second feels too much like Resident Evil with pointless RPG mechanics and mission based elements. Wish both games were just a smudge different and I'd like them more. But I love how they were classic Square Soft with great vibes.

For some reason folks like BoFIII more; at least it seems that way to me. I much prefer BoFIV myself. Better pacing, for one, and I liked the story a bit more to boot.
