I thought the Asteroids on PS1 (well I played it on PC) was badass, but the Space Invaders remake was the best one. Centipede was fun but incredibly hard from what I remember. I never played Missile Command.

I don't know why but I really love the remakes of classic games on ps1. They have graphics from an era I am the most nostalgic about but still have the same game mechanics of the original (mostly 3d frogger is still weird but alright). That and half price books always clearances them out after like a week on the shelf. 8)

My favorite was Pong: The Next Level. That game was awesome.

I've mostly overlooked these... what else is available that's worth checking out?

EDIT: found a Mortal Kombat 9 strategy guide at Target on clearance for $4.

I can vouch for Asteroids. I've had the PC version since it came out and it's a lot of fun.

The 3D Frogger is fantastic. Faithful, hard as hell, tons of content, and from what I remember a pretty awesome soundtrack. There was a 3D Q-Bert as well, but that was never really my thing.

I think the Dreamcast/PC versions were the definitive ones.

It's in the Wal-Mart bargain bin for $15 if anyone else is looking for it. There are apparently 10's of thousands of unsold copies.
