Sony’s PlayStation needs no introduction at all today. The original Sony PlayStation controller did not include joysticks. These were added later with the analogue control due to the constant growth of the games in 3D, and from that would come a DualShock version that would also carry the vibration function. Another of its accessories was the Memory Card with which the players could save their games. In addition, over time, a Multitap was created, so that the players could play up to four players at the same time. One of the main features of PlayStation and one of the reasons for its success was its huge catalog of games, of which I have made a selection to share with you all as they are among the best games of PlayStation.
Gran Turismo (Sony Computer Entertainment 1997, 1998)
It’s the first delivery of one of the most important driving sagas, in fact, the first Gran Turismo is PlayStation’s bestselling game as nearly 11 million copies were sold worldwide. The game went on sale in Japan in 1997 and in USA and Europe in May 1998. In the game, the players could get behind the wheel of 170 cars and enjoy 11 circuits of the game. To be able to play with all the vehicles, the players had to overcome different tests.
Gran Turismo introduced numerous innovations such as the use of DualShock control system and realistic vibration never before seen on PlayStation. Graphically, it was quite spectacular for the time, and if you do not remember, the surface of the cars shone greatly when light reflected on them. The players could change the original configuration of the cars, giving the game a little extra customization. On the other hand, the cars presumed of a very realistic behavior in the curves, as well as in the moment of acceleration and braking.
Resident Evil 2 (Capcom, 1998)
Although a version for Saturn was also weighed, Resident Evil 2 ended up coming out on PlayStation in 1998, although later versions would be realized for other consoles like Nintendo 64 and Sega Dreamcast. The story is set two months after the events of the first installment at the Spencer Mansion when zombies have invaded Raccoon City and it is where destinies of Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield would cross and they would have to survive together to the frightening creatures that had taken the city.
The game boasted spectacular pre-rendered 3D video sequences and graphically exceeded what was seen in the first installment, emphasizing the design of scenarios and modeling of the characters. It also had a DualShock version that included support for analogue control with vibration.
Spyro The Dragon (Insomniac Games, 1998)
It’s one of the icons of PlayStation, and its first delivery was very popular. The adventure was carried out by the dragon Spyro and a dragonfly called Sparx, although the true hero here is the first. Spyro is the chosen one to save to its race and will have to cross six worlds with several levels, each to go collecting gems, saving the other dragons and preparing to face the evil Gnasty Gnorc.
The animations of the game were incredible and the game can boast of having had one of the best graphics on PlayStation. The game took full advantage of the capabilities of console at the time, which provided the game with some rather large scenarios without losing graphic quality. Colorful, original and detailed, you could not miss on the list one of the best 3D platforms on PlayStation.
I am sure you want to enjoy PlayStation games, but sometimes you are out of money to buy certain items to continue playing, so PSN gift card is the solution
