The Best Undiscovered Playstation (PS1 / PSX) Games

Usually, when you get a new-to-you console, you can usually find or remember the major games to check out. But what happens when you need something different to play? This is where the “Hidden Gems” come in.  (Digg This)

Featured Game: Tomba! & Tomba! 2
 From Gamespot’s Review “Tomba is like a blast from the past, with a twist. On the surface, it looks just like the side-scrolling platform games of the 16-bit era. You’ll find the requisite jumps, attacks, tricks of timing, and monsters. But Tomba adds to this tried-and-true formula. There are numerous “events” Tomba must complete in order to advance through the game….Not all events are so straightforward; some tasks are downright cryptic, and you can have several events to clear at any one time, so playing Tomba requires some concentration.

Tomba sports fresh, very cheerful graphics, decent sound and music appropriate for a platform game, and smooth controls. There’s a lot of moves to master, but signposts along the way teach you how to use your controller as you progress through the game. Some areas of the game allow you to explore the foreground and the background of the level as separate areas, but don’t let that fool you: Tomba is at heart a 2D game.”

Featured Game: Trap Gunner
 From IGN’s Review: “Pure and simple, Trap Gunner is a refreshing break from an otherwise rapidly stagnating pool of me-too action games on PlayStation. Presenting a well-balanced mix of action and what can best be described as puzzle elements, it’s simply one of a kind.

It’s visual and level design are spot-on, sound’s great too, and the concept is one of the best I’ve yet encountered in an action game. It takes a decent amount of time to master the process of effectively laying and detecting traps – all while running and attacking – but one you do, it’s a one-way trip to addiction city.

If anything, I’d liken Trap Gunner to some of the earliest (and most unique) steps taken in console game development. It offers a style of play seldom seen these days — yet it’s not entirely original. Spy vs. Spy did it first, but Trap Gunner makes it better in more ways than one. ”

Featured Game: Gunners Heaven/Rapid Reload
 From Review : “Gunners isn’t without some creative alterations, though. Instead of using a Gunstar [Heroes]-like array of mix-and-match firearms, Axel and Ruka each have four personalized weapons: a basic vulcan cannon, a homing laser, a spread gun, and a flamethrower. Each type of shot has a standard form and an enhanced variant, upgraded by “P” crystals from destroyed enemies. Said crystals fill a numerical gauge that’s always counting down, requiring a constant supply of defeated foes. It’s a clever twist on the usual power-up system, and the game never leaves you without an effective weapon as long as you keep moving forward. For some additional destructive flair, Axel and Ruka can grab a rarely seen “Boost” icon that briefly jacks any weapon up to ridiculously powerful levels. There’s also a grappling tool that’s mostly useless, but fun to screw around with.

Gunners Heaven may be competently crafted and fun in its looser moments, yet it’s unremarkable, relevant only to devoted Gunstar fans desperate for a similar title. Tha’s where I come in. I loved Gunstar Heroes, and in a world where it has few imitators, even a trite rip-off is a welcome sight. Gunners Heaven has little originality or importance, but stands as a halfway enjoyable action piece and a tribute to a classic that should perhaps be plagiarized more often.”

Featured Game: Gundam Battle Assault
 From IGN Review:  “The realization of the mech designs is lovely, and there are plenty of impressive special attacks to pull off. You can fly around the screen with the R1+R2 thruster maneuver, thanks to the tall Versus-style arenas, avoid combinations with KOF-inspired sidestep moves, and ammunition limitations throw a bit of a kink into some of the weapon-based special attacks. The story mode features multiple mid-game and end bosses, some of which stretch two and three times taller than the standard Mobile Suits, forcing the camera to pull back as far as it can go through the entire battle. Altogether, Battle Assault plays rather like a slowed-down X-Men vs. Street Fighter (these are giant robots, after all), complete with insanely cheap final opponents. Who’s worse: Magneto or the Hydra Gundam? The world may never know.”

Featured Game: Tobal No. 1
 From IGN’s Review: “Control is nothing less than perfect, with an incredibly intuitive motion configuration. Pressing up and down on the directional button moves you in and out of the screen, respectively. This allows for much more freedom of movement than the traditional Toshinden diving-dodge move, which, although 3D, rarely allows for behind-the-back attacks. Tobal has also introduced an interesting grapple move, which allows you to grab your opponent and, depending on your button execution, throw them in a myriad of ways.”

Featured Game: IS: Internal Section
 From Moby Games Description: “Internal Section is a “tube shooter” in the tradition of Tempest and S.T.U.N Runner. The game uses a flat shaded, untextured polygons to keep a high frame rate in the PlayStation’s high resolution mode. Players have access to twelve different weapons, each named after a sign of the Chinese Zodiac. The in-game soundtrack is techno, and much like SCEI’s Vib Ribbon, IS can dynamically change the environments based off of music CDs in certain modes. The game is very similar in terms of gameplay and style to Rez, and actually was released nearly 3 years earlier.”

Featured Game: Harmful Park
 Hardcore Gaming 101’s Review : “As with Parodius, Harmful Park is really defined by all of the details, whether they be strange enemies, inventive bullet patterns, or just plain wacky situations. One bad guy has a Jiffy Pop embedded in his chest, which he then explodes, unleashing a torrent of popcorn. Another set of enemies drink down gasoline and then breath of fire. Yet another is a gumball machine which sends gumballs bouncing erratically around the screen. Paratroopers fall from the sky, into a vat of chocolate, which then splashes up to try to kill you. Many of the artillery encampments are merely coin operated rides. The bats carry baseball bats. Certain enemies leave behind notes that say “aho” (jerk). And then there’s the giant robotic ape riding the cow train.

Harmful Park is full of these inventive elements, which really goes to show that each and every part of this game was crafted with loving care and attention. It also lends to replayability, as you begin to pick out more strange things as you return to each stage. While there isn’t much in the way of fancy special effects, all of the graphics are bright, colorful, and some of the best 2D you’ll find on the Playstation. The soundtrack is pleasant and whimsical, even though only a few songs are really memorable. Your character’s death scream is pretty amusing though, especially as you see their tiny, aggravated expression as their cycle explodes and they’re tossed off-screen.”

Featured Game: Brave Fencer Musashi
 From IGN’s Review “A combination of action and adventure elements that will no doubt conjure comparisons (like this one) to classics such as Zelda, it’s the story of Allucaneet kingdom’s fight against an evil intruder. Its ultimate weapon: a pint-sized facsimile of the legendary samurai Musashi. Japan’s greatest warrior may have been a gruff grown up, but in this game he’s a wise-cracking kid. Go figure.

Musashi’s lengthy quest involves running, jumping, and slashing his way through six chapters, from one side of the land to the other. Not only does the little guy have to get his hands of five legendary scrolls before the bad guys do, but he’s also got to (surprise-surprise) rescue a princess. Don’t let the simple description fool you though; there’s a lot more than simple swordplay involved.”

No, no wait.. it’s a great party game. Er, ahem, that is to say the title’s also a Sesame Street-esque action/strategy extravaganza, ya know? Eek.. uh…hmmm, that won’t do.

Featured Game: Devil Dice
 From GameSetWatch’s Review: “As with the best puzzle games, Devil Dice’s gameplay is simple in premise, but full of nuance. You control a little devil who runs around a playfield where dice spawn underfoot. In an attempt to stop the onslaught of dice, you can move them around by either pushing them or rolling them into other dice of the same top face number. Once you push together a set amount of dice determined by top face (two connected dice with a top face of two, six with a top face of six, etc.), the dice glow and start to sink back into the ground. It’s at this point that you have the opportunity to eliminate more dice by rolling or pushing dice of the same top face into the sinking set. This is where the game’s combo system comes into play, with further matches rewarded with more points. ”

Featured Game: Speed Punks
From  Gamespot’s Review : “One area definitely worthy of praise is the game’s physics. The vehicles move, bounce, and steer in a very lively way. You really have to pay attention to just how far you push the analog stick because if you get careless you’ll end up smashing into a wall and losing precious time. That’s not to say the game is hard to play – it’s just not as forgiving as some of the other kart racers such as Walt Disney World’s Magical Racing Quest. In Speed Punks, you still have to follow the standard formula of racing around tracks, collecting power-ups, and lining up for speed boosters, but at least it’s a little more of a challenge since the physics really make it a bit more of an involved controller process to power slide, land a big jump, and line up for items.

In the end, Speed Punks is a quality go-kart racing game that offers more than enough variety to warrant yet another kart-racing game purchase. The game’s modes of play (tournament, challenge, time attack, and multiplayer) offer a great deal of options that carry the game a lot further than most of the other games in the genre. If you’re a fan of Crash Team Racing and have been looking for another fun four-player racer, or if have wondered if any of these kart games are any fun, Speed Punks won’t lead you astray.”

Featured Game: R/C Stunt Copter
 From IGN’s Review: “Taking into consideration the fact that Shiny was after was the true tactile “feel” of flying a radio-controlled helicopter, I would have to say that I think Shiny got it right. Especially since I have had one or two occasions to “attempt” flying one of those expensive little toys, compliments of long time friend Victor Santillo (the neighborhood rich kid). Having the insight and forethought to realize that the Dual Shock-with its two analog sticks-closely emulates a real R/C controller, Shiny was able (after years of development) to derive at a physics model that very closely simulates the true physics found in R/C Copter flying.

Thus far, very few games have taken advantage of “both” the Dual Shock’s analog joysticks. One of the first I can recall, without thinking to deeply here, was NCAA GameBreaker. It used both analog sticks to allow the running game a free roaming camera angle, to better see the side of the field that was generally “blind” while running. But, heretofore, I cannot recall any other PlayStation game that uses the device in quite this way. [ed note: OK, Fabian didn’t play Ape Escape, so forgive him] ]Now one might wonder if this game is difficult. And since the game has been delayed due to control issues, and the fact that Shiny has gotten the true physics of R/C helicopter flying down pat, I would have to honestly say…yes! It’s difficult. Well, at least for a while.”

    amazing article. it’s amazing how many great RPGs came out for the PS1… but it’s too bad how they all aged rather poorly. I remember playing BOF3 to death for a couple of weeks. Also I don’t think I ever want to play FF8 for the rest of my life.

    You know, I’ve got some shopping to do, I feel like going to FYE and get out what they have PSOne games (they got alot) most of them cost like a dollor each.

    I never knew about that Gunners Heaven game, looks awsome!
    And you should include Darius Gaiden on the shmups section. Can’t help you with anything else since I never had a PSX and know few stuff about the plataform.

    BTW have you checked the comments on the Mega Drive hidden gems list? I’ve suggested and corrected a few things but you haven’t updated your list yet.

    I’ve checked and Gunners Heaven has also released on Europe under the name of Rapid Reload. Just to let you know.

    If you’re going to name Final Fantasy Tactics as an ‘obvious chioce’for the strategy/sim genre, you should at least mention the awesome Front Mission 3. I personaly think it blows FF Tactics completely away in several catagories.

    a great list (although, personally I would’ve went for Klonoa than Tomba)

    reminds me what a juggernaut psx was for rpg (from the intro of wild arms to the *spoiler blah spoiler* ending of chrono cross it was all a blast)

    i would like to mention nightmare creatures (never liked the game… but it still had its merits [it was a difficult/challenging game in the sense of the gameplay being flawed)
    and tecmo’s deception series (never played it…as of yet…but seems to be intriguing)

  23. Ron says:

    Hey, fantastic site you guys have going here. In this list I felt the need to comment as I didnt see mention made of Megaman Legends 1 or 2. These are quite easily 2 of the best games (esp. pt. 2) that were avaliable on the PSX. Perhaps you have not played them? They didnt get nearly as much attention as they should have. If you have the chance pick them up and try them. They are a huge change from side-scrolling megaman titles but then again so was battle network and it had a good run. You wont be dissapointed.

  24. what about Guardians Crusade?

    Get an emulator. That’s what they were created for.

    I enjoyed playing Jumpman on a Commodore 64.
    I used to like to play Metal Slug at the arcade.
    I loved Vanguard.

    change Psychic Force to Psychic Force 2
    change mr driller to mr driller g
    change ridge racer to ridge racer Turbo 60FPS version
    And put Side By Side Special with racing games as well, a true hidden gem. I would kill a kitten for a wireless negcon to play that game on my ps3! There is even a rarer Side by Side Special 2000, very rare!

    PS3 can be a little ropey for playing PS1 games. Even if you have the correct model that plays them, the sound, disc scanning and general controls are flawed when running through the system on many games. Some games don’t even run. You’re better off just buying a PS1 to play a lot of the oldies.

    This site makes me sick… They never follow the titles or purposes of the articles… most of these games are well established and popular. “Hey Lets make an article about rarest games but put in FF7”, one of the most common most popular f***ing games ever sold.

    The one greatest undiscovered game is Diablo for PSX.

    I know I rant on about it too much, but It pisses me off that such a godly f***in game doesn’t ever get listed as it should be anywhere, I’ve been googling to find lists with Diablo in it but none… It makes me sick.

    There was a game I played at my cousins in the early 90’s I cant remember but I really think it was on SNES. Ok, it was a side scroller however there were no planes! Two guys were flying (R type style but possibly with jet packs cant remember) and the gun upgrades were amazing!!!!!! thats all I can remember please help!!! 🙁 P.S. (Like Gunstar Heroes only the two guys are in mid air lol, just a little more help)

  71. jmbarnes101 says:

    I’m just going through some of these again and noticed you’re missing Puyo Puyo. It’s a fantastic, quirky game that I regret getting rid of once upon a time. Trying to find it for a decent price now is horrible.

  72. yeahh says:

    yeahh good games

  73. Heppy says:

    GREAT SITE… I used to addicted to Brave Fencer Musashi, I finished it more than 10 times… perfectly! XD
    n love other RPG games (I was RPG nut)…

    btw.. wan to recommend.. tail concerto.. very cute, yet challenging 3-D game… its like klonoa in 3-D platform XD

    U ROX!

  74. jmbarnes101 says:

    I’m not sure why I said Puyo Puyo. I meant Poy Poy.

  75. cave_man says:

    you should check out MDK its a great game played it when it came out haven’t seen it since. its awsome.

  76. Kian says:

    oohh those days. Tomba’s riddles made me crazy when i was a kid. ohhh the evil swines.

    great article

  77. vanamingo says:

    Hey, great list, love psx. one thing, theres SPIDER game(not spider man), great game, check it out, ist sort of dedly creatures on wii,but only controlling a spider.

  78. jimmycolorado says:

    I see there is a section for 3D Rail Shooters, but what about GunCon rail shooters? The GunCon 1 was one of the coolest pieces of industrial art design I’ve ever held in my hand.

    And while all PSX GunCon games other than Time Crisis could probably be considered “hidden gems”, there’s one I haven’t seen matched on any system before or since: Elemental Gearbolt. It is the Mona Lisa of GunCon games.

  79. grandmasterdeaf says:

    Does anyone know the name of this thrid person game where you played as this girl who set traps for people in a spooky house or something? Possibly assasin or mercenary kinda thing?

  80. jackpollack says:

    girl who sets traps sounds like Deception 3, different and fun

  81. easybutton says:

    So that’s where bombastic comes from.

  82. Orion Pimpdaddy says:

    I like your article, but I have a couple of more to suggest:

    Puzzle Star Sweep- It seems that nobody know about this game, but it is a very addictive puzzle game. It was marketed as a “budget” title and has some English translation problems to show for it, but when it comes down to gameplay, it is fantastic. It has elements to it that other puzzle games don’t have, such as bosses inside the puzzle area.

    Qix Neo-I have been playing this game off and on for about two years. Like Puzzle Star Sweep, this game was marketed as a “budget title.” It is like Qix on steroids.

  83. brian says:

    This is a great article i really like it..

    HOSHIGAMI!!! you forgot this! best simulation/rpg game! hard and yet cool.. much like fft but a lot harder more challenging.. 😉 just try it..

  84. bleachbankaikon says:

    Front Mission 3,
    Not super rare, but obvious.

    Hogs Of War, again, not super rare, but awesome game.

    Road Rash. The PSX version wasnt the best but cant seem to find it anywhere atm. Might not be looking hard enough tho…

    Both Rollcage games… Hard to get in mint cond.

    Loaded, rarer than Reloaded i believe… And much better!

    Didnt see Fighter Maker… Was a shockingly awful game but you dont see many copies around.

    Btw… Great list, Racketboy! Keep up the good work!

    Damn… That took some typing… On here with my Mobile. Lol.

  85. bleachbankaikon says:

    Whoops… I forgot to put Amazing with Front Mission 3!! What am i thinking??? D’oh!

  86. ricky says:

    blood lines was amazing

  87. toby says:

    Does anyone recall a game in which you controlled a ball on a floating platform high above the earth and you could roll over the edges without falling off?

  88. toby says:

    Kula World that’s it!

  89. Gav says:

    dude, thanks for posting this, i’m always looking for more good games, you’ve posted some gems here man!! love the rpg’s

  90. Ferran says:

    Thanks a lot man!!! Your list is truly original and top-notch. I hope I can find those gems…

  91. Shawn says:

    Thanks dude, been trying to find the name of Team Buddies for ages, loved that game couldnt think what it was called!

  92. ju says:

    awesome list. I like how you got monster rancher, threads of fate, and tomba. But where is mega man legends!? That game came out of nowhere, and delivered an awesome story and some fun ass gameplay

  93. anonymous says:


    Project overkill. Hello? Bueller?

    And Loaded or Re-loaded. Those were such fun guilty pleasures.

    Thanks for mentioning IQ. I’m downloading it for my android phone as we speak…..but, it shoulda been in the #1 spot for puzzlers. That game is like crack.

  94. Asse81 says:

    One of my all time favorites, which was not mentioned, is Tenchu – Stealth Assasins. If you havent tried it, do yourself a favor and get it.. dont let the somewhat poor grafix fool you, the gameplay is the SHAAEEEIIT!!

    And by the way, there are now 4 or 5 games in the series, but whatever you do STAY THE F*CK away from number 2 – it sucks ass.

  95. Dill says:

    i have a copy of Ehrgeiz (no case) and a copy of resident evil directers cut for ps1 for sale, $25 + shipping. if iterested email me at

  96. bones says:

    hey i saw you mentioned poy poy and tobal 1. both incredible games, but both have awesome sequels especially tobal 2. tobal 2 is by far the best fighting game for ps1 my opinion… never released in america, but tobal 2 has a translated iso. check it out.

  97. zzz says:

    I’m sorry, but ADVENTURES OF LITTLE RALPH is better than any game you mentioned in this article, and is BY FAR the best game on the psx.

  98. zero says:

    True, Adventure of Little Ralph is very good

  99. Snake says:

    Ok.. WTF is Medievil and Metal Gear Solid, and Parasite Eve!?!?
    You even missed Crash Bandicoot Racing, it was the Mario Kart of the playstation.

  100. racketboy says:

    This is the list of Hidden Gems — not the best-known games…

  101. Korbaut says:


    He mentioned CTR in the piece about Speed Punks. Seriously people! This article is about UNknown games. FF7 and anything with Megaman in the title is NOT UNKNOWN.

    MGS is mentioned in the Action/Adventure section under OBVIOUS Picks. Because THAT’S WHAT IT IS.

    Also, I agree with Jersey Devil needing to be on here. And Power Shovel, that was awesome.

    Also, you should look into a game called LSD: Dream Emulator. It’s one of the weirdest games you will ever encounter.

  102. mastersword says:

    i like turtles

  103. BankBank says:

    great article, thanks! only game i would suggest is ‘starsweep’ in the puzzle category

  104. zsd says:

    reallly need help findin a game…… any way really good article but could u help me find a japanese stratagey where u summmon monsters to help u deffeat the enamy….. im writin on psp so srry forr bad spellin

  105. AceNoctali says:

    Good list overall, with excellent mentions such as Intelligent Qube, Wild 9, Magic Carpet, Tail Concerto, Heart of Darkness, Detana Twinbee Yahoo Deluxe Pack and Mister Driller.

    But lack of games such as Tear Ring Saga (Strategy RPG), Policenauts, Broken Sword, and D (Adventure), Tokimeki Memorial 2 and Mitsumete Knight (Other), Taisen Puzzle Dama and Taisen Tokkae Dama (Puzzle), Parodius games (2D Shoot-em-up), TOCA 2 Touring Cars (Racing), and Colony Wars (Flying) is making me cry.

  106. Jack says:

    Yeah this is a great article. A lot of work was put into this. thanks.

  107. stalepie says:

    Great list. I recommend King’s Field and Tecmo’s Deception. Glad to see little-known titles like RayTracers and Pandemonium on the list.

  108. thanks for this great list!! very informative..

  109. michael says:

    I think adventure games deserve a place here as well. Actually, I only recently discovered that, for instance, Discworld 1 and 2 made it to PSOne. And that’s also great news for people who can’t run its pc versions on more recent systems – just get an emulator and voila!

  110. thumper says:

    Hogs of war, Syndicate Wars and Z. Surprised they weren’t on here…. Great little gems with hours of fun.

  111. alex says:

    I’m so glad I have a PSP to play al these classics, Tomba was my favourite, rapid reload tobal number 1, Brave Fencer musashi, all great. dont think brave fencer mushashi was that underrated though

  112. ksj dd says:

    way the pas1 games not coming?2010

  113. zshaf says:

    i need help on looking for a game. i think it was japanese and it was about a boy trying to rescue his sister from a leader. the boy walks across a map and he sometimes gets captured by soldiers and he has to fight some evil things. if he wins he gets stuff like money and flints. he also fights a 3 headed spider. the aim of the game is to rescue his sister and restore order and rebuild the country. i know it begins with S. any ideas???

  114. gtanny says:

    zshaf – it sounds very similar to ico on ps2

  115. neurolino says:

    where is vrally-2 ? in the place of cars racing

  116. Ak says:

    Old games were the best ones. The new games have gone too far away, ok, the good graphics and animations and etc. But nothing is going to be the same thing. In almost all the updated games like Tekken or Mortal Kombat (that once were on top while Ps1 time) on Ps2 or Ps3 everything changed and lost the essence that they had once and that essence is what made them be what they were back then.

    Does anyone remember Thrill Kill? That game was amazing but… That is a sad story. But wow is just too good!!

  117. graff says:

    @AK – I agree…games these days are all graphics/no story but since I love first person shooters, I love my 360. However it may be visually stunning, but RPG’s will never be the same as snes/ps1. And while I’m on the subject of RPG’s – LUNAR : Silver Star Story Complete should have been on the list. and the remade version of Chrono Trigger(even if it isn’t undiscovered)

    [PS the new Mortal Kombat seems to be taking it back to its roots with a new twist, cuz i hated the last 3 mk games]

  118. CojoeAmiyumi says:

    Very helpful and informative list. I just got a full-BC PS3 (60GB) so I’m trying to find all the best for the PS1 and PS2. So far I’m loving the three-generation compatibility, not to mention the PS2’s arcade comps and Sonic’s UGC.

    One question – have you considered doing a list of the best 2d games on the PS1 — RPGs, platformers, arcade/puzzle and all? I saw your article on ‘modern 2d’ games on the PS2 and it was quite good, but it seems there are probably many more left to be discovered on the PS1. Thanks!

    On a side note, when the heck is Hudson bringing those TG16 games to PSN (US)? They said it was this month… :-/

  119. crazy-k says:

    I still play the play station one game. I cant get past duke nukem land of the babes level 13. cant get down to release houston and find the two secrets.

  120. racketboy says:

    We are planning on doing a 2D games guide — just a lot of others to get out of the way first 🙂

  121. Kaiser says:

    can someone help me to recall the game i played long ago.. i think it is a war game like brigandine but not as that having polygon etc.. it is 3D i think .. have castles invading something like that.. and i remember the opening is a boy that has two swords?.. someone?..

  122. Kaiser says:

    And i think .. there is a character that has a big two handed sword.. long white hair.. Please help me..

  123. Adam says:

    For racing genre, my favorite one ever on PSone was Grand Tour Racing ’98. It’s the only game I’ve kept from psone throughout the years. I can still enjoy it every time I go back and play.'98

  124. alexander says:

    Musashi is undiscovered? one of the the best action-Rpg of the Psone, made by Square, very good critics, i remember when this games launchs, not undiscovered at all

  125. Sergio89 says:

    For all italian users…… a PS1 fan blog 🙂 my blog!! 🙂

  126. matt says:

    One I recently discovered was Apocalypse (starring Bruce Willis). Maybe it’s really well known, but I’d overlooked it because I figured it was shit. Turns out it’s actually a lot of fun!

  127. igit says:

    tae ninyo pangit kaayo inyo mga dula

  128. Matilda says:

    Alright. I’m not an elitist, and I don’t claim to know everything when it comes to video games, but I really don’t understand how Rhapsody and Legends of Dragoon are not listed in the initial list, or even mentioned in the comments. I r disappoint.

  129. Marty says:

    man i played Brave fencer musashi as a demo on some disc i got from pizza hut. and i recently have got back into it. its a great game

  130. Roland says:

    Great list!
    But you have to put in Bishi Bashi Special! I strongly reccomend to everyone to play this game, it is the best party game I have played in my life.

  131. Rue says:

    Agree with Roland!

    I think Bishi Bashi is the most underrated and undiscovered PSX game! Its hella fun, IMO best party game till date couldn’t find ANY OTHER game that rivaled Bishi Bashi special in its genre!

    Rhapsody is also an undiscovered gem of RPG (thanks to Matilda for mentioning), not like any other RPG, Rhapsody has a “laid back” style where it encourages you to savor every scene through its beautiful melodies, definitely one of a kind. Couldn’t get the theme song out of my head till this day. (Sarah Thomas (as Cornet): Let’s Go On) =)

    Other undiscovered great games:
    Getter Robo (robotic strategy game)
    Critical Depth (a great submarine game, Twisted Metal spin-off)

  132. Dude, great article, but all the image links are broken!.

  133. kuraudo says:

    Try “Evil Zone”–an overly simplistic 3D fighting game with very cool Anime-inspired characters and animation.

    Also, Pepsi Man. LOL

  134. Luke Unlucky says:

    What about Blasto or Jersey Devil?
    Galerians could be remembered too.

  135. Jayslice says:

    Castlevania – Symphony of the night

    this one is awesome game too!!!!

  136. Rob says:

    blasto definitely deserves a mention!
    also, did anybody play monkey hero (rpg, similar to top-down zelda), dragon valor or street racer? they may not be super-original but they were great to play, and can be found for a few dollars online now 🙂

  137. Rogue says:

    Please, I remember playing a side scrolling game for PS1 like beat’em up with animals with clothes but don’t remember the name, maybe someone remembers?

    the reason I don’t remember the name is because the cover and the game itself was in japanese, so it’s possible it was only released in japan. It’s a sidescrolling game, where you can choose 3 characters: All animals, but they walk in two legs, like cartoons.
    one is a circus monkey(with a red outfit) and uses a stick as a weapon
    other is a bird (a parrot, i think) and uses a long cutting weapon I don’t know the name
    And the other is a pink pig which uses a Trident

    Each one had a special move, I only remember the pig’s one, which blasts a short flame from his mouth

    The first stage is a jungle with shallow water on the ground, and you beat the enemies, like a beat’em up game, when they die they drop lots of coins…

    I remember there was other stage in a kinda castle
    You can choose a different character for each stage

    if someone knows the name of it, please help me out

  138. Patrick BBE says:

    If you want a great Tank video game get Steel Reign. Sadly, I gave my old ps console and the game to a friend.

  139. Aejad says:

    You Should Put Crash Bndicoot 3 : Warped too!!!

  140. Patrick BBE says:

    Cool, her younger brother still owns the console and the game. Haha!

  141. msg says:

    For 2D shmups you really should add X2: No Relief. Its better than most and hardly anybody’s heard of it.

  142. UnholyKrenmaut666 says:

    Suikoden and suikoden 2? Alundra and alundra 2?

  143. JaySizzle1985 says:

    Auto Destruct
    I didn’t see it mentioned or brought up in the comments. I also only know one friend that had it and that’s how I came across it. I recall fondly from back in the day as a kid I loved it. The free roaming map coupled with some pretty engaging vehicular mayhem had me hooked. But what really floored me when I found out about it was the inclusion of a blood code you could input it completely changed the mood of the game. If you guys never played it give it a shot little things made it stand out to me it also included a lot of firsts for its time. PLUS gotta say it dragging people in your under carriage on that game never got old! Good times……….good times and this game would be on my list of unknown, underrated games for sure.

  144. Vague Rant says:

    I’m entirely working off guesswork and deduction here, but the game you described sounded like an adaptation of Journey to the West, the Chinese classical novel (with protagonists including Monkey and Pigsy). Digging a little deeper, there was a Journey to the West action game on PSX called Fuuun Gokuu Ninden, on the cover of which are a monkey, pig, bird and girl. Fingers crossed, I think we might have our game.

    Good luck!

  145. Rogue says:

    OH MY OH MY OH MY FUZZING GOD DARN IT SHOOT MOTHERFUDGE! I Just can’t believe U found IT! xD I own you any help you need! Just Ask!

    billion zillion thanks to you! Vague Rant!

  146. Patrick BBE says:

    Playing Wild 9 with my friend’s old grey Playstation. Hasn’t DRE or YLOD on us yet!

  147. Patrick BBE says:

    My Favorite RPG is Star Ocean The Second Story.

    You can get the remake for the PSP, but I’m all for the original PS!

  148. Sirkrozz says:

    Parasite Eve I and Valkyrie Profile are 2 true RPG gems on PSX. Just like Suikoden I and II (were there other RPG that made you get 108 characters…?). All of these games have multiple endings.

    Legend of Legaia; that one was special with his combo combat system.
    Koudelka is a boring attempt to fill up discs with Resident Evil-esque pseudo-RPG traits. Overall it’s a 6/10 game. Nothing special or relevant other than a censored sex scene at the end.

    A 3-CD 3D Action-Adventure Squaresoft game called Soukaigi, released in Japan only, is also one of a kind, with gigantic stages and end-of-each-disc bosses to be fought across entire cities and with a bunch of different characters to select from. I’ve never seen anything like that on PSX.

    Also, both Vandal Hearts are more of the Strategy genre rather than RPGs.

  149. PJ says:

    I would definitely include Bomberman fantasy Racing.

  150. Hani-Baal says:

    I think Lup*Salad & Zoku Gussun Oyoyo should be considered for unique puzzle games, & Remote Control Dandy because it’s highly impressive for the PS1 & it’s the precursor to Robot Alchemic Drive.

  151. Justin 84 says:

    Sly Cooper was pretty cool. I love this sight. Telling my gamer friends all about it. Great format and details. Ps1 was a solid system.

  152. Axel'sVirtue says:

    This list should have The Misadventures of Tron Bonne ( Megaman Legends may not be unkown anymore, but this spin-off definately still is)

  153. Sack_Attack says:

    Can anyone remember an old ps1 rpg which im pretty sure was japanese made where you can choose your characters at the start but each caracter you have saved takes up 3 memory blocks on the memory card. you run around with your party following you and i think you start off in forest area and theres bear enemys in the starting area i think and a little bit into the game you can go into a cave where theres this owl like boss and everytime i went there it tells me im too weak to be at this point. i used to hire this game out like 10 years ago and ive been trying to remember the name for months. please help somebody….

  154. Narsil says:

    “Help!!! Please help me find a old playstation game, it’s japanese game where player must put traps to defeat enemies. Game field was separated in squares.”

    Kagero??? Maybe…

  155. Bryce says:

    I’m surprised Vampire Hunter D isn’t mentioned on here at all. It’s a survival horror/action game in the same vein as Resident Evil and Onimusha. The graphics are pretty ugly, but the puzzles and fights are great. It has some weird moments since it’s based on a Japanese book series, but I found it pretty humorous.

  156. MelvinSmiley says:

    Little Big Adventure 2 was never released on PSX, it’s a PC-exclusive.

  157. 1337B337 says:


    Under platformers, you should have “Gex Series,” listed as an alternative…
    Gex 3 was the Super Mario 64 of the PS1.

  158. MasterSys says:

    Amazing list, though I agree with 1337B337 the Gex series was pretty damn good ( especially Enter the Gecko ).

    Good to see Gekido getting a mention I just picked this up recently and its a great Beat em Up that offers quite a bit of diversity with its movelist and combos, though it can be pretty tricky to learn at the start with its unexpected button layout.

    But also, why no love for the Street Fighter EX series? Sure its no Tekken, but it’s a solid fighter series with an awesome soundtrack ( And one of my favourite characters in SF, Skullomania ), I know Street Fighter fans look at this in dismay but it certainly isn’t amongst the likes of Battle Arena Toshiden and Kensei: Sacred Fist… those were horrid to play.

  159. Bliepjes says:

    This game is not in the list, but I’m pretty much you’ll agree it should Racket; Vanark Astro Trooper. It’s similar to Starwing and is an excellent rail shooter with great graphics and gameplay. I never understood why it wasn’t a big hit since people loved Starwing and such.

    And keep up the great work Racketboy. I use this site a lot to find great hidden games and read up on a bunch of stuff for my study game design and development. Last year I made a one-button game with two of my friends, and it later became one of the PAX10 showcase games of 2012. It’s called Catch-22 and it’s a relaxing and frustrating one-button game in which you play against yourself… no joke 😉

  160. Bliepjes says:

    Also, One Piece Mansion is a frantic strategy game

  161. Bliepjes says:

    AAAND last but not least (I’ll shut up after this), one of THE best RTS games on the PSX I ever played; Warzone 2100. A fantastic mix between RTS and FPS where you can dynamically take control of an AI tank from your army and control it.

  162. Bliepjes says:

    Ok one final request for the list (already mentioned once before): The n1 weirdest PS1 game EVER made: LSD (Lovely Dream Simulator)

  163. Etrius says:

    Since I see there’s some recent comments on this post, lemme ask:
    I’m looking for a 3rd Person Shooter from PS1 and I don’t really know its name, the only things I remember is: There are Gigantic Insect Bosses at every stage… and… i think the main character wears black pants and white shirt… o.O

    Could any of you gimme a light? (sry)

  164. Jesus (Not Christ) says:

    Where the heck is Muppet Race Mania? One of the best karting games ever!

  165. Traptdemon says:

    Legend of legaia should be on the list of hidden gems. Sure it doesn’t play like a traditional rpg but it’s enjoyable. Controlling how your character attacks was one of the unique innovation that legend of legaia presents instead of hitting attack option and see a generic attack.

  166. chris says:

    not going to say they’re “missing from the list(s)” but just to add my 2 cents.
    i’ve spent hours and hours playing and replaying Battle Arena Toshinden 3, getting much more pleasure out of it, even after beating it all the way through several times, than i ever have with any of the Tekkens. i love the timing, the layers of power moves and how you have to keep track of your and your opponent’s at any given time, and how you can roll around and attack from behind. good combination of characters as well.

    also, as per games that used both analogue sticks, and one that i have yet to see mentioned on any of the best-of or unheard-of lists online: Forsaken. i’ve invested hours in that both on the original machine and later with the emulators’ advantage of “cheating” with freeze states, and i’ve still never finished the game. but i love the physics, the flow, the range of weapons, the sound effects. it’s one of those games that i would play until i fell asleep and then very happily go on dreaming inside of it. yeah, must say, love the sound effects especially, and the atmosphere in general.

    also, not really for replay value, and it is difficult to find three other people who actually want to play this with you (well, me), but Blast Chamber is another that i’ve yet to see mentioned in these lists. like Intelligence Qube, it’s just funky and weird and different, even in its relative simplicity. and i like the different game modes. strange title, but imaginative.

    thanks for the list(s)! i’m looking up the unknown ones right now, and smiling at the others, remembering the well-spent hours of fun.
