    Lol no. Pretty shit remaster tbh.

    Should probably keep this to just exclusives for simplicity's sake. Otherwise we should probably have "best of the generations" threads

    Ape escape
    Silent Hill 1
    The entire Yakuza series (altho I hear they're getting ported to PC nowadays)
    dino Crisis
    Devil may cry 1 and 3
    Metal gear solid
    Heavenly sword
    Genji: Dawn of the samurai
    God of war series
    Demons souls

    *Quits naming things

    Not really, it improved a few things in the Remastered version.
    However, I couldn't consider it the best, because one of the best remasters has got to be Halo 2 Anniversary. The cutscenes are glorious, despite being over 4 years old, nonetheless have aged pretty well. At least it's better than Silent Hill HD Collection, am I right?

    I agree with Graves, keeping it just to exclusives is more practical.
    Also don't post about remasters, refer to original games (unless it's a complete remake like Shadow of the Colossus).


    God of War is a masterpiece. Same goes for previous titles.
    Mentioned SotC.
    Horizon Zero Dawn
    Uncharted 4 (not a big fan, but it's a solid exclusive)
    You've added Bloodborne already.
    Couple of other games.

    Okay, I edited my list, happy? :whatever:
    But it's not just exclusives, there are also ports for the PS consoles that are "superior" than other ports... alright?

    These are all games I liked so much I can still remember their names. These are not the "best" games of the first Playstation console though.
    Since I was never into several genres (platformers, action, shooter, sports, etc.), I didn't play games that others consider great (like Tomb Rider, Klonoa, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, etc.).
    But the games I mentioned were all my favorites.

    I don't have time or patience to post about PS2 games (I never played PS3 or PS4 games), so I will have to stop now.

    This makes me realize how few games I had when I was a kid and never really expanded much of my library until moving to PC. Looking at my completions per platform it's PC then Xbox 360 then Playstation 2. PC is bigger than both those consoles combined.

    Purely Exclusive wise:

    • Crash Bandicoot
    • Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back
    • Crash Bandicoot: Warped
    • Crash Team Racing
    • Crash Bash
    • God of War (PS2)
    • Shadow of the Colossus
    • The Last Guardian
    • Twisted Metal: Black
    • God of War (PS4)
    • Spider-Man (PS4 since the others weren't really exclusive)
    • Tony Hawk Pro Skater (was later ported to other systems)
    I also really liked Battle Hunter as a kid but I don't know if the game was actually good or not. But it was cool to me at the time haha.

    A sadly underrated title.

    I would go with the obvious, the entire Metal Gear Solid series. 1-3 are some of the best games I've ever played.
    Silent Hill 2 is up there as well.
    Shadow of Colossus
    Canis Candem Edit (Or Bully)
    GTA San Andreas
    Soul Calibur III

    And while it's not even out yet, I'm gonna add Shenmue 3 just because the fact the game even exists has already made the last four years a lot better.

    Edit. Also forgot Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel. Could never forget about that masterpiece.
