Top 15 role-playing games for PlayStation One

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

In our list of the best SNES role-playing games, we mentioned that SNES was probably the best console of all time for role-playing games. If there's one console that's going to challenge that claim, it's the PlayStation 1 console. Rather, the console is able to convince those who have no interest in role-playing games that spending more than 50 hours of their lives on the next epic role-playing game to be released on PlayStation 1 is what they need in life. The sudden rise in popularity of the genre prompted the biggest role-playing companies to try to stand on their own two feet, both artistically and commercially, and to create masterpieces one after the other. PlayStation 1 now has a collection of role-playing games, each of which can easily find a place in the list of the best role-playing games. With all due respect to the 20 other games that deserved to be included in this list, this is you and the Top 15 role-playing games for PlayStation 1:

15. The Legend of the Dragon ( The Legend of Dragoon )

Producer: Sony Computer Entertainment/Producer: Sony Japan Studio
: 1999 (game release dates are based on releases in the West, not Japan)

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

Since 1999, the legend of the Dragon legend has been on the rise, and it's not hard to see why. Although the game was criticized at the time of its release for being of a lower quality than the PlayStation 1 role-playing game standard, over time the role-playing community became more aware of its highlights.

Although the legendary Dragon story It has a slowness, but its extraordinary combat system makes up for it. Due to the fact that the game's combat system emphasizes QTE-based mechanisms, it is rare for you to watch the game battles as a neutral spectator. The Character Transformation mechanism in this role-playing game is also so clever that it is surprising why many games have not been imitated since its release. It is also worth mentioning the game's epic and ambitious CGI interfaces that made the game available on 4 discs.

14. Wild Arms ( Wild Arms )

Producer: Sony Computer Entertainment/Producer: Media Vision
Release Year: 1996

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

Wilder Arms was another PlayStation 1 role-playing game that when released in the shadow of classic games It should have competed with them, but the factor that made the game stand out at the time of the series' release is something that still makes the Wild Arms series look special: its style and style.

The world of Wild Arms is a combination of science fiction, fantasy and Western; This combination may seem unfamiliar at first glance, but it has worked well in this game. Media.Vision, the creator of the game, deserves admiration for keeping the ambitious game world cohesive and finding clever ways to transform the player's genre expectations through exploration, combat and puzzle solving.

13. Breath of Fire III ( Breath of Fire III )

Producer: Capcom/Manufacturer: Capcom

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

Hot debate about whether fire breath 3 is better or fire breath 4 will not be solved in this article, but the third title of the series has found its way to this list due to raising the quality standards of the series and the style of role-playing.

Numerous and amazing characters constantly keep you engaged in the game and force you to always be curious about the path that the story is going to take.

12. Front Mission 3 ( Front Mission 3 )

Producer: Square/Producer: Square
Release Year: 2000

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

If you are willing to take the time to understand the relatively complex mechanisms and deep storyline of the Frontline 3 mission Do your best, because this game is one of the best tactical role-playing games of its time and one of the best Mecha games of all time.

Gamers call this game because of its two outstanding features. Recall: Personalization and gameplay options are very difficult, but in my opinion the narrative line of the game - which focuses on intergroup battles - and the way epic mecca battles are portrayed without relying on traditional action gameplay, is not appreciated as it should be./p>

11. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night ( Castlevania: Symphony of the Night )

Producer: Konami/Producer: Konami
Year of Release : 1997

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

The only reason this game is ranked - one of the best games in history - position Not at the Top of the list is that the other games on the list are a better representation of the role-playing style and experience we attribute to games of this genre. The game is used in such a way that not only did the face of the Castlevania franchise change forever, but the night symphony inspired other game developers to enhance the overall game experience by using role-playing elements in their games. Symphony of the Night is still one of the best titles in which the style of role-playing and action/adventure is combined.

10. Valkyrie Profile ( Valkyrie Profile )

Producer: Enix/Producer: Tri-Ace
Release Year: 2000

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

Long before God Of War took us on an epic journey through Scandinavian mythology To win, Valkyrie's profile surprised many PlayStation 1 players with a unique combination of Japanese design and the story of Nurshash, in which you have to assemble a group of heroes to help you in Ragnorak.

9. Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete ( Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete )

Producer: Kadokawa/Producer: Game Arts

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

Lunar was first released in 1996 for the Sega Saturn It was, however, eventually remembered as one of the PlayStation 1 titles, because in many ways Sony's first console allowed the creators of Lunar to fully implement the idea they had for making the game.

Lunar In many ways, it's an Old School Japanese role-playing game, and that may discourage many from experiencing it, but once the alignment, group management, and turn-based gameplay are implemented so well, it can be easily played. It was considered one of the most prominent and enjoyable titles in consular design.

8. Star Ocean: The Second Story ( Star Ocean: The Second Story )

Producer: Sony Computer Entertainment/Producer: Tri-Ace

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

Talking about the Star Ocean without mentioning that the game is almost 90 has a possible ending, it's hard, so it's no surprise that we started talking about the game with that in mind. But along with the large number of possible endings, the interesting thing is that many of these endings are clever, logical, and perfectly perfect.

The large number of possible endings clearly shows that in this fantasy/science fiction game, Do is really important and anything can happen. Also worth mentioning is the clever "Private Action" system: a unique mechanism that allows team members to each experience their own adventures, some of which are some of the best side missions in the history of role-playing games. p>

7. Xenogears ( Xenogears )

Producer: Square/Manufacturer: Square Product Development Division 3
Release Year: 1998

However, all the different concepts and contexts used in this role-playing game. Together, they form an amazing and memorable whole. The game's Battle Time Action System (ATB) is one of the best of all time, the game's story is complex and creative and has a lot of emotional depth, beautiful game graphics and great music. Of course, the second half of the game is bumpy, but these shortcomings can be ignored as side effects of ambition.

The Action Time Battle system commonly used in the Final Fantasy series is an alternative to the system. Classic turn-based combat is Japanese role-playing. In this system, instead of the characters taking turns, they have a bar called Charge Time, which whenever it is filled for each character, that character can perform the current one, such as attacking or performing magic.

6. Final Fantasy 7 ( Final Fantasy VII )

Producer: Square/Producer: Square
Release Year: 1997

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

By now, Final Fantasy 7 should have been the victim of its own success. After all these years of praise and controversy, the infamous word "overrated" should now cast a shadow over the game's legacy.

But that has not yet happened. Of course, after Final Fantasy, 7 games were released that were better than this game, but it is sad to imagine what the role of the role-playing industry would have been in the 90s and 2000s if this game had not been released. The game showed millions that they loved role-playing games and were unaware of them, and none of them sacrificed depth, quality, ambition and emotional aspects of the game to reach this wide audience.

5 . Final Fantasy Tactics ( Final Fantasy Tactics )

Producer: Square/Manufacturer: Square
Release Year: 1998

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

Many chose it as the best tactical role-playing game at the time of its release, but this is the game's most notable achievement. At present, despite the fact that 24 years have passed since the release of the game, no other game has been released that can be considered a serious competitor of tactics in this field.

The gameplay of the game is very accessible and at the same time deep and It's fun, and the colorful graphics, engaging characters, and surprising storyline of the game all complement the gameplay. I do not know if Final Fantasy Tactics is the best tactical role-playing game of all time, but for many, it will remain a light quality standard.

4. The Story of a Stray ( Vagrant Story )

Producer: Square/Producer: Square Product Development Division 4
Year of Publication: 2000

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

It seems that since the release of the story of a tramp in 2000, fans have been waiting for this game to Reach the level of attention and popularity it deserves. Although this game has its own special and persistent fans, but apparently this game is never going to reach the level of popularity it deserves. This game is too hard and too different, and a decent rhyming version will probably never be made for it.

However, those who have played the story of a stray know that this game is the most ambitious and Square was the most unique role-playing game for PlayStation 1. The story of a stray is better than most of its contemporaries thanks to its amazing graphics, deep fighting, and mature story. It is strange that a game that is so different and innovative, seems so complete and confident.

3. Chrono Cross ( Chrono Cross )

Producer: Square/Manufacturer: Square Product Development Division 3
Release Year: 2000

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

When the Crown Cross was released, one of the first comments about it was made The disappointment was that the game was not a direct sequel to Chrono Trigger. Even when it was reported that the game's development team never looked at the game as a sequel to Crono Trigger, the game remained in the shadow of the previous title in the series - which is one of the best of all time.

Maybe if Crono Cross As a classic released for the SNES, it stays true in some ways, but even at its relatively controversial release, many people find the game surprising due to its innovative battles, weird story, large number of characters, music, graphics and surprising elements. If you've experienced PlayStation 1 role-playing games, Chrono Cross is probably not the first game you have experienced, but it probably has more room in your heart than any other game.

2. Final Fantasy 9 ( Final Fantasy 9 )

Producer: Square/Producer: Square
Release Year: 2000

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

Final Fantasy 9 was a kind of Square farewell song for PlayStation 1. Although the game's return to medieval fantasy (which characterized the classic Final Fantasy games) reflected Square's cheerful atmosphere at the time, many wondered if Square could handle the controversy caused by Final 8's release. Successfully curb and release designs that proudly end their brilliant track record on PlayStation 1.

They have managed to do so, and this is an achievement that should not be overlooked. To this day, I rarely think of a role-playing game that has charm, humor, and characterization at the Final Fantasy 9 level, while providing a role-playing experience that is enjoyable for both novices and genre practitioners alike. This game is an all-round achievement that fills the audience with taste and surprise.

1. Suikoden 2 ( Suikoden II )

Producer: Konami/Manufacturer: Konami
Release Year: 1999

BingMag.com <b>Top</b> 15 <b>role-playing</b> <b>games</b> for <b>PlayStation</b> One

Suikdon 2 was doomed from the start. Released at the same time as Final Fantasy 8, the game was not widely distributed and had "retro" graphics that repulsed many gamers during the heyday of the PlayStation 1's great cinematic graphics. Worst of all, the previous title of the series was a very good, but not great, role-playing game that did not reach a wide audience.

However, Swikuden 2 is one of the best games of all time in any genre. I love to talk about the game's elegant, deep and political story, its diverse combat system, its mini-games, its powerful worldliness and its beautiful music, but Suikuden's biggest strength is the more than 100 characters that can be added to the group, characters that Konami is successful at. Has made the individual (as well as their interaction with each other) the best examples of game release time. I think the game needed to change.
