Reading the options for the poll, I realize how much of a Squaresoft fanboy I was back in those days. I haven't played any of the titles listed but played most of what Square released for the PS1.
I was definitely a Squaresoft fanboy on the PS1. It's a shame I overlooked Konami in those days, even though I'd known for years that they make great games. Konami 2D games like Suikoden and SotN have aged incredibly well.
