What's everyone's favorite Playstation one game?
I don't usually pick absolute favorites with anything in life, but if someone were to ask me what I thought was the best game for PS1 I would have to answer "Rayman"! |
It's bright, it's cheerful, and it's quite an elaborate game. This is no easy win. You have to conquer 5 worlds before getting to the final stage and each world has several challenging levels. Thank goodness you can save your game, because there is no way you can play this in one sitting if you have any kind of a life at all. The characters are big and easy to see, the use of the pastel colors is awesome (everything is a soft color to some degree), and the landscapes are absolutely beautiful.
Not only that, but the soundtrack is delightful. I don't usually pay attention to video game music, but most video game music is ignorable at best or a real annoyance at the worst. The music in this game really ADDS to the adventure. It's bouncy and happy, reminds of the Smurfs. You DO remember the Smurfs don't you? If not, shame on you. Anyway, this is a big, happy adventure with heavy psychedelic overtones. It's better than being on a good acid trip because you don't have to take drugs to get there! This is a wonderful, wonderful game perfect for everyone.
Also, the original Parappa the rapa had the best music ever.
Kick punch, it's all in the mind....
