I got yelled at and had to organise tournaments, only to get yelled at more for taking control of something that was going nowhere otherwise.

I dont even get paid for this!

@Th3solution hey man good to have you back. I was worried about you dude. Loads of comments and posts and you disappeared! Hope life turns around for you.


@YummyHappyPills sounds like they have no idea how to run a tournament. Or worse still are lazy.

Hey everyone. After running the tournaments and polls over the last few years I decided to stop doing it. Which was a good choice me thinks. However;

I was reading 1001 games to play before you die. Which is okay, major holes in the list imo but its a great trip down memory lane. Then I thought,

could we order every single Playstation game ever physically released in PAL and NTSC territories? Maybe into an overall order descending from must play to dont play. As gaming connoisseurs we could do the whole 21 years of Playstation history. What are everyones thoughts on that?

@themcnoisy That sounds interesting. Any thoughts on how we would decide that the order? We could use your previous competitions as a way of jumpstarting the rankings. Making that list is a big enough task by itself without ranking it. I’d be down to try I think. It might take a couple years, but we can try lol. I’ve heard of more physically released games after PS1 than most have, and I’m sure many here are similar. It might the first time it’s ever been done if you don’t count gamerankings that I know of. Maybe the first to do it from a modern perspective.

@Jaz007 to start with we get a good but not great game, middle of the road game and a weak but not unplayable game. We will all choose these together. Then we throw games in randomly to get different lists. At least then we will have a servicable amount of games in each list to order.

List A - if the game is more essential than the good game
List B - if its not as desirable as the good game but more game worthy than the average game
List C - if its not as good as the average game but better than the weak game
List D - Worse than the weak game

First of all though we need to know how many games were released on each system and pick a date we are going upto. Say E3 2018. From there we have the base of the thread.

Once we have all the games in the lists we can then order them. For obvious reasons the order of the games in List A and B will be more scrutinized than C or D.

So yeah. Once we have got the lists together the detail can be managed by everyone in the commuity who has played the games.

There about 1,850 games released for the PS1&PS2 in NA each. Not sure about PS3, that might be a little harder to figure out because of digital games, but I’ll take a look at it later today.
I’m also thinking that after we have a people name a bunch of games, we could see if some users could take a year and figure out what we forgot about through gamerankings or metacritic. Maybe 2 people a year to make it through and allow for a few mistakes.

@Jaz007 That is actually less than I first thought! Awesome. If another person (or 3) join the conversation we can start to take it a bit more seriously! Cheers mate.

@JohnnyShoulder @RogerRoger Thank you kind sirs. I think things are clearing back up for me. The battleship is turning back around, albeit very gradually.
@themcnoisy I’m on board with the “must play- must avoid” list creation. I don’t have near the knowledge and experience that many do on here, especially the early gen stuff, but I could contribute my part.
I’m not sure I completely understand the logistics of how the lists will be generated but I would be willing to take a list of games I played and categorize them.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

Hmmm.

I understand the idea of marking something as "You MUST play this" but in my own experience I find telling people a game is awesome, the equivalent of gaming homework as it were, leaves them disappointed. This has happened to myself and many across the internet that if you say its the best thing ever...you'll be setting some high bars especially for older games.

Either way I'll gladly dive back through my PS1/2 libraries if needed. Nothing like some ol' classics (Or not...Heart of Darkness)

@Jaz007 @YummyHappyPills @Th3solution maybe the order should be most influential games from a Playstation perspective. So age will have less to do with the list.

@themcnoisy I’ll go with whatever we all decide, but I feel like factoring age in as well as when it came out makes for a more interesting and unique list than just influential.

There is definitely a difference between a game being influential or console defining vs. a must play. Many of the influential games from PS1/2 are nigh unplayable by today’s standards. And some have stood the test of time well enough to be enjoyed even now. Perhaps there could be a separate bucket for “must play games at the time, good or better than good, but don’t waste your time playing these now”

@Jaz007 @YummyHappyPills @Th3solution @crimsontadpoles okay great maybe the title could be; The official and complete descending list of retail released games playable today from the full back catalogue of the Playstation platform based on Influence, Quality, Reputation and Retroactive opinion.

@themcnoisy Lol. That’s a mouthful but man, if I was browsing and came across that title I would definitely want to read it!

@themcnoisy Sounds about right... It's just missing a little asterisk at the end and some small text at the bottom saying ''Octane's approvel''.

I've been looking for an excuse to play some old PS1/2 games again. Maybe I'll stream and then review em too, all at once...
