10 PlayStation One Games That I Hope the PlayStation Classic Will Have

Sony recently announced that they will be releasing a mini version of the console of all consoles this December (yes, just in time for Christmas, mi familia! *parinig pairing hehehe*), and I. Cannot. Wait.

Although I was a huge Nintendo baby, playing Nintendo games on the SNES and the Gameboy and all that; I have extra immense feelings for the Sony PlayStation because it was the console that really made me feel things while I was gaming.

To this day, I still feel like crying whenever I hear the soundtrack of Final Fantasy VII. And when someone asks me to play Tekken with them, I cannot not say yes because I finished all of the Arcade modes - even with characters I didn't like - just to find out more about their background and history. (I'm a nerd and therefore am a sucker for games with killer storylines.)


Now, while the console is 45% smaller than its original, the controllers will look and feel exactly the same. Nostalgiaaaaa!

So far, the PlayStation gods have already announced that 20 games will come preloaded in the PlayStation Classic, but they haven't announced which games those will be. In the perfect world of Angel, these games would be a part of those 20 (aside from the already-announced 'Final Fantasy VII', 'Wild Arms', and 'Tekken 3'):

Final Fantasy IX


Yes, I skipped 'Final Fantasy VIII'. I wasn't much of a fan of it, but I miss 'Final Fantasy IX' for some reason, and would love to play that one again.

Crash Bandicoot


'Crash Bandicoot' was the first game I fell in love with on the PlayStation One. I was nine years old and collected figurines of him and the other characters and memorable things in the game. I finished the entire trilogy, but the first one is extra memorable because I didn't have a memory card yet and had to manually write down each password.

Suikoden II


'Suikoden II' is one of the most challenging RPGs I played on the PlayStation One. It was also one of the most frustrating ones. Remember going on a side quest and then realizing you forgot the other side quest and could no longer make it on time? And oh, you didn't save an extra slot on the memory card, so you either have to continue un-OC-ly without finishing that particular side quest or start from the very beginning if you're really OC. :p Still, I loved every bit of it.

A Thousand Arms


Apparently not a very famous game now that I've asked fellow gamers about it, 'A Thousand Arms' was one of my favorites. Not only did it get me interested in video game voice dubbing (I LOVED their dubbed voices in this!!!), but I also actually think that this game prepped me for the dating world. :p

Bust-a-Groove


Yes, Dance Dance Revolution was probably THE best dance game of my generation, but that was more of an arcade game. If we're talking console games, it was 'Bust-a-Groove' all the way. Not only were the characters lovable, but the songs were hella catchy, as well.

Legend of Dragoon


I played a LOT of RPGs on the PlayStation One and this one is probably the most fulfilling one because it wasn't exactly hard and yet you still got to play the game for a long, long time, thanks to its four discs of awesome.


Castlevania: Symphony of the Night


Now if we're talking classics, it doesn't get any better than this. I played a lot of Castlevania games on my different gameboys, but I would love to play this one again if given the chance because I'm currently obsessed with the Netflix series of 'Castlevania'. (Read more about that here.)

Tomb Raider


I gotta admit: I wasn't a great 'Tomb Raider' player. This was more of my older sister's game. However, I do remember the fun that I had watching her play and I'd like to think that I might be better at it now that I'm (much) older. Besides, remember that cheat code to get to play the game with Lara Croft naked? You might call it sexist, but it would bring back the memories for me.

Resident Evil


Today's horror games scare the bejeezus out of me. That's not to say that old school horror games didn't scare me, but they were definitely more tolerable, especially if you turn down (or completely turn off) the volume. I'd love to be able to play old school 'Resident Evil' games again since I'd actually be able to play them without fainting. :p

Silent Hill


Obviously, you can't play old school horror games without playing games like 'Silent Hill' (and as a bonus, let's add 'Clock Tower' into this). This game is the reason why fog still freaks me out sometimes.

What about you? Are you waiting for the PlayStation Classic as much as I am? And if you are, which games would you like to see pre-loaded into it? Geek out with meeeee!
