I remember the times gaming was good during these days. I enjoyed PS one because it contained CD-quality arranged musics for certain arcade/N64 licensed titles, has a bigger gaming library ranging from Air Combat to FIFA Soccer 2005, and had amazing, real-time 3D graphics of the late 90's and early 2000's. One of the things that got into my nerves of the PS one are that Memory Cards are too short (120 kilobytes? For real?), each game requires a Memory Card (usually 8 kilobytes or more) to save data, not powerful enough as the Sega Saturn, does not have a clock, system memory, or built-in four-controller ports (why do I always have to buy a Multi-Tap just to play 3-8 player modes?).

Strange thing about the face buttons are that Sony used geometry instead of basic Latin alphabet. For some reason, Circle was the "A button" while Cross was the "B button" of Sony's game systems and the menu controls are even messed up outside of Japan, much like how a Cross would mean "right" and Circle would mean "wrong" instead of the usual terms.

PS one gaming had gone downhill when the PS2, GCN, and Xbox arrived, so all what PS one received was downgraded ports of next-gen games until 2004. I think the PS one was the 2nd greatest game system in history, proceeded by the current, present-day PS2.

My favorite PS one games are:
Gran Turismo
Final Fantasy VII
Street Fighter Alpha 2
Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
Speed Punks
CTR: Crash Team Racing
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1-4
Mega Man 8
Mega Man X5
Mega Man Legends 2
S.C.A.R.S.

There is a lot I can think of; the PS one had an awesome gaming library! I wonder what your PS one favorites are; it was like another best of gaming...

The only game title I remember playing (besides DDR) was Bust a Groove. I loved how you could attack/dodge while you danced.

I got an N64 in 1997 (oddly enough, on the 50th Anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking baseball's color barrier). Didn't get a PlayStation until 2000, after playing Final Fantasy VII.

Super Robot Wars F, F Final (haven't finished this one), Alpha

Chocobo's Dungeon 2
Bust A Move 2 (yes, JP version), I also like Bust a Groove, but I really loved the second one.
Threads of Fate
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

And the list goes on and on. I'd take all night thinking about the games I've played on my PS1, whether good (see above), or bad (Blaze and Blade, Panzer Warfare, Scooby Doo and the Cyber Chase) or in between (Monster Rancher 2, Sabrina: A Twitch in Time, Chocobo Racing).

Too bad the PS one did not get any SEGA games when SEGA released games for newer generation Sony systems during the PS one's later days (I think the only SEGA games to be on PS one are the Puyo Puyo games). SEGA could have at leased re-released Sonic Adventure DX, 2: Battle, or Heroes for the PS one during its death and last days instead of Electronic Arts having to release their newer sports games on outdated systems.
