So I recently reacquired my old PS1, and having gotten back into my old games, I want some good old classic games! Here's some of what I have:

  • Rayman 2
  • Crash Team Racing (fuck yeah)
  • Crash Bandicoot 3

There's the obvious ones like Metal Gear Solid, but what are the best of the best I should scrounge from eBay? All suggestions welcome.

If you can I recommend finding one of the old school Resident Evil games from the 90's. I spent so many hours on those.

These are great suggestions so far. I'll need to look into some, because I had never heard of Tomba until you mentioned it, Red_Baron, but keep 'em coming

A bunch of people here have suggested The Legend Of Dragoon, which looks right up my alley. Which is good. The problem is that it's still expensive as hell, anywhere between $150-$250 AUD on eBay, and I haven't found any retailer who stock it. 

Maybe asking will be futile, since I'm not sure how many Australians are on WWG, but does anyone know a good Melbourne-based store that can get me PS1 games? May as well put it out there, Internet.

Also, these suggestions are still awesome, keep them coming. Just need to find somewhere to buy them first.

The Legend of Dragoon is the only RPG in my mind that could square off against Final Fantasy at the time. I'm so happy I still have my original copy.

You should try Legacy of Kain if you like Metroid like games where some areas can only be reached after you got a power up/upgrade.

Otherwise Tomb raider could also be good since theres 3 on the console you could make a Playlist for all 3

Silent Hill, Dino Crisis and Persona are all great games. The controls for Silent Hill and Dino Crisis take some getting used to though.
