@Fight_Teza_Fight Not really my thing in truth - Only liked Ridge Racer of the 5 (out of 20) games announced so far and that is very dated compared to modern racers and with so many 'new' experiences coming up, I can't see myself wanting to relive 20+yr old games. I know there are a lot of fans of 'retro' gaming but in general, I do prefer to play 'new' experiences more - not exclusively as I added Lemmings to my laptop recently as an example but rarely do I play 'old' games and certainly would rather spend money on new games. Each to their own but I thought I would share this news as I know a LOT of PS fans will be very excited by this.

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...

That's cute. Thing is though, the only reason I got the Nintendo Classics is to get games I never owned.

Witb this, my PS1 is still on the shelf and some of the games I dont own are upcoming buys in 2019 elsewhere and on PC.

So...cute for those who want it.

@BAMozzy Well I'm glad you did! I'm hoping Chrono Cross & MGS make the final cut.

I find it hilarious how some people are complaining about the price point or that it needs more than 20 games. Most PS1 games are expensive as hell to purchase physically today. Sure if you buy them digitally on PS3/Vita, they cost €5 each but that's still 20 x 5 = €100, so it doesn't really matter. Also, PS1 is the first 5th generation console out of the major ones to be receiving a "mini" version. Seeing as how Nintendo has been increasing their price points for each iteration (€80 for NES mini, €100 for SNES mini) I can imagine that an N64 mini will be €120 or even more, and will probably also have fewer games since NES mini had 30, then SNES mini had 20. But once again, humans' greediness knows no bounds.

I mean, if games like Symphony of the Night and The Legend of the Dragoon (games that cost over €100 each to buy physically) are included then this offer is a steal. Not to mention if they could include a save states system.

I personally won't be buying one since I already have a PS1 that I want to use more. But this is a great deal for people who haven't played a lot of PS1 games, and now that we just had a poll for the best PS1 games, a lot of people here on the forums will surely be interested in getting one.

Best games as voted by the PushSquare community:
PS1: Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy VII, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Final Fantasy IX, Tomb Raider II

It also depends on what games are on the system. Megaman Legends? Crash Bandicoot? Metal Gear Solid? Resident Evil? Chrono Cross? I think that will make a huge difference too.

@KratosMD Couldn't agree with your last post more. I think it's a steal.

Knee update...

Well...good news is, progress has been made...

Bad news?

My GP doesn't know what is wrong, so I'm referred to physiotherapy and orthopaedics...which may result in surgery just to find out what's wrong.

@Knuckles-Fajita Yeesh. But at least, as you say, it's progress!

With any luck, specialists will have a better chance of a diagnosis without the need for exploratory surgery. I'll keep two of my fingers crossed for you!

@RogerRoger My GP did question just why the actual hell I hadn't been referred to orthopaedics before**.

Said the stiffness and general pain and discomfort could be a fairly common issue found in us young folk, but that then doesn't correlate at all with dislocation and weakness causing me to collapse when lifting things.

So she reckons they'll need to stick one of those fancy cameras in there to see if it is the common condition primarily before exploring....other things...

@Knuckles-Fajita Welcome to the NHS; the left hand so often doesn't even know the right hand exists, let alone what it's supposed to be up to. When you finally do break through that initial nonsense, though, the care is decent, so here's hoping that's what you've got coming up.

See what the specialists say. It won't necessarily go straight to camera probing.

Hope it's not too long a wait for that referral, either!

@RogerRoger They may want to go straight to the camera because of my age. I mean that's fair. If it is that condition and it's a factor, by all means.

@Knuckles-Fajita Well, best of luck regardless. I really hope it all works out okay.

Good god....can't wait to be done with Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep. Aside from Terra's story, the gameplay has been so awful....

Even the rocks do not recall.

@Thrillho Depends what they want to look for.
