Top 100 PS1 Games In 10 Minutes … according to Retro Sanctuary

Top 100 PS1 Games In 10 Minutes … according to Retro Sanctuary

After having done a Top 100 According to Gamer Votes and a Top 100 According to MetaCritic, I now present the Top 100 PS1 Games According to the good folks at Retro Sanctuary … in 10 Minutes!

See the full list here:

http://retro-sanctuary.com/Top-100-PS1-Games-Page-1.html

One of my other videos is a “Top 100 PS1 Games According To Gamer Votes” – and in the roughly 10 months it has been posted, the comments section shows it is quite polarizing. Specifically, that other list is very heavy with JRPGs – which some people do appreciate – but judging by the comments, most people don’t.

So, here’s another list – compiled by the good folks at Retro- Sanctuary which is, I find, a little more balanced across the genres (i.e. a little less JRPG heavy). It does still have a bit of a Final Fantasy bias, it’s definitely more varied in scope.

(On a personal note, I’m surprised that some heavy hitters didn’t make this list (e.g. Parasite Eve, Twisted Metal, Die Hard Trilogy, etc …but the contents of this list are still pretty solid)

This also now means I have created 3 Top 100 PS1 lists:

1. Top 100 PS1 Games According to GameFaq votes
2. Top 100 PS1 Games According to Metacritic
3. Top 100 PS1 Games According to Retro-Sanctuary

Oh, and on another personal note – I’m super major totally bummed out that Omega Boost did not make it to ANY of these lists.

If you read this far, please do me a personal favor and add a comment agreeing “OMEGA BOOST WAS AWESOME”. Thanks 🙂

    Gex: Enter The Gecko seriously deserves more love. Never understood why it wasn’t as known as say Banjo Kazooie.

  26. EvelynLovely on May 10, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    I played this certain game about 10 years ago and I literally am on the verge of going crazy because I can’t think of what it’s called! I use to play it with my mom but she passed away so if anyone can help that would be great. I will try to explain it the best I can remember.

    it was this character (it was not a human character but I can’t remember what it was) you could play and move freely through out the game, there was this part where there was these skeleton dinosaur looking things all over and the scenery was on a beach but it was super smokey, dark and there was fire and there was huge dinosaur bones laying everywhere. You can go into the ocean but if you go far enough out a creepy looking shark will eat you and you’ll appear back on the beach. They were more creepy looking then just normal dinosaurs. I thought maybe it was a crash bandicoot game but I can’t find any that you can move freely as you please around the game, and I can’t remember what the point of the game was🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ it’s been on my mind a lot lately.

  38. jambi on May 10, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    Don’t get me wrong, I love new video games and I love gaming on my pc but nothing will ever touch these games made from ‘95-2005.

    There’s a lot of times where I wanna live more minimalistic and get rid of all my consoles and game solely on a ps1, especially since I don’t even play video games like I used to but the quality of these games were so much better.

    I’m also so sick of all the BS that comes with next gen consoles or even playing on a pc. It’s really convenient and the games look and run better too but as advanced as a lot of these consoles and PCs got, the more of a pain they became with the constant updates or not being able to access a digital game because it needs online to run it.

    Being able to just sit back and play completed games with no new updates on a ps1 (or any old school system) will always feel so good to me. That’s why I still have my ps1 and play it. I just played shadow man yesterday actually. One of the worst ports/versions u could play too, lol, but idk, it just feels right playing these older systems.

  39. Probo Iriawan on May 10, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    100% agree with MGS1 being #1, but I’d personally put RE2 and Crash Bandicoot 3 in the top 5.
