Parasite eve definitely
@Arugula I think you win "Most Obscure Back-Catalogue Name Drop", congratulations.
That was the cel-shaded racing game, wasn't it? I heard a lot of good things, but ended up getting Gran Turismo 4 back in the day. Was it really that good?

Making It So Since 1987
@RogerRoger I think you'd find that gamers liked it more than critics. It's hard for racers in particular to stand out from the crowd and it certainly did that. Ahead of its time in certain regards, particularly the capacity for 8 player online. A work of art in motion though touchy simcade controls. I'd love for Capcom to do a modern day version of it.
@Arugula I prefer my handling more towards the arcade end of the spectrum anyway, so I might keep it in mind for when I'm in the mood for a retro purchase. Thanks!
Stranger things have happened, so a spiritual successor (or Kickstarter revival) isn't an impossible dream.
Y'know what I'd like a reboot of? No One Can Stop Mr Domino. Who wouldn't wanna play as a sentient domino piece causing havoc with chains of dominos?
... Ok kinda joking aside I'd like to see Pandemonium! remade. It was a fun platformer and we could use more of those these days, especially with it's unique world and style. Plus Fargus was pretty cool... we need more Jester progatonists lol
I think Primal would be an interesting choice to get remade too as it was a decent enough game but I feel it has the potential, especially with Sony's first party output as of late, to reach greater heights then it did on PS2.
... I'd also take a Time Crisis remake. Add in Time Crisis 3's weapon wheel and expand the special mode and I'll buy it day one!

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy A sentient domino? They already had a (sort of) sentient beach ball back in those days too!
@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Pandemonium takes me back! Great game! Primal was ace too!

Ha! I was gonna say Kula World as my jokey answer @Thrillho! Like Mr Domino I only played the demo of it... Think I still have them somewhere!
Mr Domino has a lot of Japanese quirk to it as the demo level had you going round a house (He automically ran round the level) and using chains of dominos you triggered all these events with various members of some family 😅
I'd also agree with Hogs Of War being remade... but on the other hand it just wouldn't be the same without Rik Mayall either. Unless they did it like MediEvil and got the audio from the PS1 game... That'd be great.
Both were pretty good @Arugula!
I got Primal brand new for PS2 for £3.00, maybe even a bit less, a few years back so at that point it was a bit dated mechanically but it was still fairly solid and unique with the gothic tone.
I know there was a sequel to Pandemonum but... I never quite liked the changes they made to the characters making them look more edgey lol
@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Ah, Mr Domino. Whenever I refer to this game in articles about future remakes etc, I'm only ever half joking. It was glorious. Another niche one was Unholy War, which was a fighting game set in a tiny arena. The PS1 really did have some great games.
Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.
I think I remember Unholy-War @Gremio108... There was a lizard character and a person with buzzsaws or something right? Maybe a... hippo too?
Only played the demo of that too sadly... I remember it though as I'm pretty sure it was on the same disc as Abe Exodus which I played a LOT of 😅
Both Persona 2 games, Shinobi ps2, blood will tell, the bouncer
Can't wait for PS5!
Sim City since we haven't had a console version for a while.
Beyond Good and Evil
@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy @Gremio108 Are your memories of these games coming from Official PlayStation Magazine demos too?
True story: I once traded the demo disc with Unholy War on it for a blank floppy disc to use at school.
@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Yeah the lizard was some sort of velociraptor-type creature and there was a guy on a hoverbike too. Naturally. I don't remember the hippo, but let's face it, it's not the weirdest thing we've mentioned so it's very possible
@Thrillho Yeah, I used to get hours of gameplay out of those demo discs. Sometimes the Net Yaroze games were good too
