    You don't remember mini cds, like gamecube discs but before gamecube, and you couldn't fit 74minutes on them

    USB port and MP3 player would cover it, TBF.

    You'll have to wait for a FPGA PlayStation clone for VibRibbon I think. Apparently current FPGA tech can just about do the PlayStation without prohibitive cost but nothing else from that gen.

    Surely a thumbdrive into controller port 2 would suffice

    All this being said I'm not sure if I was restricted to 20 games I'd choose ViBRibbon, but dayum, that bunny's fun

    No VibRibbon

    Shoutout to the VibRibbon crew.

  • That list is a mix of system defining greats (rr type 4, tekken, MGS, ff7), nonsensical decisions (resident Evil dual shock edition) and obvious substitutes for licensing issues.

    Puzzle games are a welcome inclusion and they picked some good ones.

    Really disappointed not to see a wipeout, rtype delta, overboard or klonoa.

    Or the t Rex demo.
    .
  • Where's Driver?

    Is that another like Wipeout/GT that would have licensing issues?

    Tomb Raider and Crash are odd exclusions despite the latter's recent re-release probably bein the reason.

  • Driver's probably being saved for the Dual Shock PSOne Mini.
    You have minecraft?
  • Ace Combat 2 is missing too. That'll be on the dual analog version with scart output.
    .
  • Wipeout2097/3 and Gran Turismo 2 are sadly missing. Resident evil 2 should've been there as well instead of RE1. Otherwise, decent list?

    JPN version has Gradius Gaiden (magnificent game - best in the series - surpasses even the mighty Gradius V on PS2) and G-Darius.

    Will a jpn version work over here?

    You can get it working with a chipped PS1 - I have it running using a boot disc.

    It's 16bit graphical-eriffic looking, incorporates some fake 3D effects while remaining 2D, and choc-full of ideas. Give it a look on youtube.

    Think it's on PSP too.
  • Any idea if it'll work on a PSP modded with the standard firmware? Either the PSP or PS1 version.

    Nope - not a PSP head unfortunately.

    It was released on PSP as part of the Gradius Collection in all regions inc. Europe - not sure if that is significant.
  • It means I can just grab that and it'll definitely run, so yeah. Thanks.

    The PSP version isn't worse than the original or anything, is it?

    No idea. Given they are just hori-2D shmups I can't imagine them being bad on a PSP....

    Given you get 1,2,3 , Gaiden and 4 it's hard to wrong. G1 & 2 and still stupendous games too.

    The series lost its way a bit with 3 and 4 which are cripplingly cruel and hard.  V was a return to form but many still say the series peaked at Gaiden.
  • Cool, I'll stick it in the memory card next time I've got it out. I suck a little at shmups, but it's a genre I'm missing on there without firing up the SNES emu.
  • Gradius collection is the bomb.

    It's one of a handful of games I put on the PSP memory stick last week but I've still not been able to pull myself away from the near flawless Out Run 2.

    @AJ  - Gradius games, even the better balanced ones, aren't easy. So be aware of that.  These are the arcade versions too (apart from Gaiden which was a PS1 exclusive) so they will be merciless.

    I got a ton of PSP games, I'll sort you out.

    What's GnG like on PSP? Always fancied that one.  Never had a handheld but would consider a PSP with a few select games like Parodius Collection etc.
  • I didn't like it at first as it requires searching the stages for keys to finish properly, which means numerous playthroughs rather than the standard two. Once I gave up complaining about it I realised the whole thing is mostly excellent.
    You have minecraft?
  • It's fantastic, but unfortunately never saw a digital release, otherwise I'd own it on Vita.

    Is Vita modding at a place where custom firmware can legit connect to PSN?

    Would consider modding mine once PS+ support ends.

    Yes it was, the games indexes there were pretty good. I was looking for similar the other day, found this though. Also I posted a long list more recently in the emulations fred, though there are definitely gems that aren't on that list as there's stuff I couldn't find

  • There's a blast from the past! Think I lost my excel tally form that Elf set up for me to collate all those top tens. It would be good to rerun it again and see what changes.
