* A look back in history: PS1

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
Playstation2/Sony looks back and declares their twelve favorite titles from the original Playstation: notables missing from my list are Megaman X4, Einhander, and Soul Reaver, though to their credit they did mention Blood Omen and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

Given the PlayStation's powerful 3D capabilities, tastemakers were happy to declare 2D gaming dead. Fortunately, they forgot to tell Konami, who obliviously went on to create the sublime Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, which merged the series' gothic stylings with the non-linear gameplay of the Metroid games. It also featured beautiful graphics, which adeptly mixed hand-drawn art with clever polygonal trickery. Widely hailed as one of the greatest games ever, SotN was an open declaration that the PS1 was meant for hardcore gamers, too.
