THE MOST POP­U­LAR FIRST GAMES

A cer­tain or­ange mar­su­pial was many peo­ple’s first PlayS­ta­tion ex­pe­ri­ence

PlayStation Official Magazine (UK) - - FIRST GAMES -

50% THE REST

This doesn’t just in­clude the games you’ve per­haps never heard of, such as Blasto, Wild 9, Fu­ture Cop LAPD or Lone Sol­dier. There were also plenty of ti­tles rock­ing only one vote that you’d think would get way more. We’re talk­ing about games like Klonoa, Breath Of Fire 3, and Night­mare Crea­tures, to men­tion just a few hits of yes­ter­year.

There were also plenty of big names that had more than one vote but still only made up one per­cent of the moun­tain of re­sponses we re­ceived. This is where you’ll find WipE­out, Fi­nal Fantasy VII, and even Res­i­dent Evil.

CRASH BANDI­COOT

Is it any sur­prise that PlayS­ta­tion’s own or­ange whirl­wind claimed such a large share of the vote? Be­tween Crash Bash, good old CTR, the Bandi­coot’s premier plat­form­ing out­ing, and, uh, The Wrath Of Cor­tex, he gives one heck of an in­tro­duc­tion to the PlayS­ta­tion fam­ily! His dev­il­ish at­ti­tude sold PlaySta­tions.

METAL GEAR SOLID

Who else would sneak up be­hind the top spot? How­ever, we hope that this doesn’t mean Snake is about to put Crash to sleep. Even at this early point in his ca­reer, Ko­jima wore his cin­e­matic in­flu­ences on his sleeve. This game’s pre­sen­ta­tion, on top of its tac­ti­cal es­pi­onage ac­tion, hooked many and never let them go.

SPYRO THE DRAGON

You ob­vi­ously love your brightly coloured puz­zle plat­former pro­tag­o­nists. The orig­i­nal scale baby flew into many hearts way back when and has stayed there ever since, atop a pile of gems. If you missed out back in the day, then we re­comend you hunt down PS4’s Spyro Reignited Tril­ogy, it’s hot, hot, hot!

A DEMO DISC

Talk about a by­gone era. The hum­ble demo disc – of­ten en­closed with this very mag’s pre­de­ces­sors – not only in­tro­duced ex­ist­ing gamers to their next favourite but they also showed plenty of yet-to-be-gamers a whole new world, no PSN ac­count or in­ter­net con­nec­tion re­quired. Don’t you miss the old days some­times?
