I thought you were talking about the PSP.

Like I said, I can buy them for the PS2.

Well, you can play PS1 games from the PSP. (games for only $7!)

 

Did you read the OP? He said if they brought these downloadable titles, how could you resist the classics?

...those aren't the classics. Those might be the cult-classics. The classics usually involve names like Vagrant Story, and Final Fantasy in them, and they are amongst the best games of all time.

Calling those games cult classics and then naming Vagrant Story as a classic is silly.  Your metric for a classic definitely can't be sales (Suikoden 2 and I bet a few others beat Vagrant nicely) and it's definitely not quality (Suikoden II wins there too IMO).

In the end, it's just another case of rose-colored colored glasses and an "I know better than you" attitude.

He seems to do that a lot.

He and Khuttra are having at it in the Bayonetta thread.

For kicks, I updated the OP with all the single-disc PS1 RPGs I can think of, including Vagrant Story, just for Zenfolder. =)  I think Zen is upset because I listed the first two Tales titles to make it to the US there -- he probably hasn't played them, and is perhaps upset that they will never come to the 360 or Wii. ;)  He lives and breathes Tales, from what I gather from his posts.

 

I don't think there are any instances of multi-disc games on PSN -- someone said something about "Command & Conquer" but... you lost me with that one. PC RTS what? If there was a PS1 version, I don't see it on PSN.

In any case, I added a bunch to the OP. I find it hard to believe all the "I own em all" posts, given the size of the list there... but I suppose that RPGs are relatively niche titles that aren't going to drive many people into purchasing a PSP/PS3, as it did for me with the PSP.

The PS1 clearly beats the socks off the SNES, N64, Genesis, etc. combined when talking RPGs. The only way you will ever get to experience these titles, if you missed them the first time, is via PSN -- unless you buy a PS2 and pay a small fortune for each used disc title on that list.

Go on, Zen.  Call some of the new ones I added "cult classics" too.  LoL.



PSP And DS is all you need for RPG's of anykind (Mainly J though) because its obvious that the PSP and DS will always have more JRPG's then any 3 of the consoles.



More does not equal better, i will stick to less but next gen ones on my 360

Not that 40+ RPGs that 360 has are ... few by any stretch of the imagination Are you sure DS or PSP have more ?



@ Groucho

I've always heard that the king of RPGs was the SNES.

During the 16-bit era, that was definately true, in my opinion.  By the end of its lifespan, however, the PS1 had a much more impressive array of RPGs (many of them sequels to SNES classics) than the SNES ever did.  Then the PS2 trumped the PS1... and still hasn't been dethroned, really.

Yes.  The DS and PSP easily have more than the consoles combined.  Probably just with all the Atlus RPGs, they're getting up there.

And in my opinion, just the fact that the DS and PSP has the focus of the Dragon Quest series makes it better.  As you don't need graphics to make a good RPG (though DQ doesn't slouch in thatdepartment either).

 



Six upcoming games you should look into:

Oh please, list the 40+ RPGs on the 360. You just completely made that up.

 

And yes the DS and PSP have more than double the RPGs on the 360.

Not sure if Command & Conquer games are on US PSN but those are definitely on EU PSN. And they are classified in PS1 classics there so I would guess there's also been a PS1 version. And some games released on US PSN have not been released on EU PSN. Actually, Suikoden, Wild Arms and Xenogears have not been released on EU PSN.
