The PlayStation 1 console is always remembered for its collection of revolutionary classic games, advances in 3D technology, and the use of CDs. However, as you may have guessed from the title, PlayStation 1 has also been an important host for some of the toughest games of the 1990s. Let's get out of the famous and infamous difficulty, but with the challenges of designing 3D games, it created a new set of challenges in games and confronted a generation of gamers with some works that they were not ready for.
Even after We've been accustomed to the intrigues and mechanics of 3D game design all these years, but I think many gamers today will continue to struggle to beat the toughest PlayStation 1 games. Let us introduce you to the 15 hard games of this memorable console so that you can try your luck in experiencing them.
15. Crash Bandicoot ( Crash Bandicoot )
Producer: Sony Interactive Entertainment/Producer: Naughty
Genre: Scuba Diving
One of the funniest things about the release of the original Crash Benedict trilogy in 2017 was that all of a sudden They recalled that the main trilogy of Crash Bandicoot was very difficult.
Despite the linear design, the main trilogy of Crash Bandicoot, and especially the first game, required a level of perfection in platforming. In the remastered version, due to today's graphics of video games, camera, and of course the controls, the game became a little easier for the player and the experience became more accessible, but in the early days of PlayStation, the game experience was much more difficult. It was almost impossible.
Crash Benedict's next games made things a little easier, but the combination of deliberately challenging obstacle titles, as well as a few controversial decisions in the design of the first game, really made it One of the Has become the most difficult game of its time.
14. Fear Effect ( Fear Effect )
Producer: Eidos Interactive/Producer: Kronos Digital
Genre: Action Adventure - Horror
The main "fear effect" games are unpleasant today for many reasons (eg racism and strange erotic interludes) but if they are You have experienced it and you have struggled in the process of progressing in the game, it is not only because the game has not been able to keep itself alive to today's standards, but also the "fear effect" in its time is incredibly difficult game The game is basically a combination of Resident Evil-like controls, point-and-click adventure puzzles, and of course unpleasant stealth sequences. "Effect of Fear" was One of the most popular and challenging games in the game in its heyday.
"Effect of Fear 2" may be even harder than the first game, but here the first game in We have put it on the list because it is One of the most unique and difficult experiences among PlayStation 1 games and it was also the beginning of the games in this series.
13. Driver ( Driver )
Manufacturer: GT Interactive Software/Manufacturer: Reflections
22 years have passed since the release of this game and I still think that the "driver" game was a joke . Otherwise, how do you explain the decision of the game development studio, Interactive Reflection Studio, to turn the game's training phase into One of the most difficult stages in the history of video games?
In the first phase of the game, your driver has to make a series of moves. Do the complex in a limited space, while having a very short time limit. Worst of all, the game often does not recognize when you have done a move correctly. This means that even if you have mastered some of the toughest moves on the first try, you will still not be able to pass the test.
You will probably be surprised when you notice that there are stages in the continuation of the game and in some parts that the degree of difficulty of the game jumps even more and becomes even more difficult from this infamous initial stage. At least this game is still better than the sequel.
12. AdWorld: Abe's Odyssey ( Oddworld: Abe's Odyssee )
Producer: GT Interactive/Producer: Oddworld Inhabitants
Genre: Scuba Diving
Oddworld's unique puzzles and weird key mechanics for players who just want to know what to expect in the game. Challenging enough, this game goes One step further in the history of PlayStation by employing some brutal stage design tactics. They end. While this kind of brutal gameplay can make sense in a Bullet Hill game, it can be annoying and even more difficult in a puzzle game where player trial and error is always important.
Adworld : The Odyssey of Ob is obviously supposed to be a difficult game, but knowing this will not make you feel less cruel to the game.
11. Rayman ( Rayman )
Producer: Ubisoft/Producer: Ubisoft
Given the evolution of this franchise over the years, this may seem strange, but the first part of Rayman is One of It's the toughest 90s game and probably One of the toughest platformer games ever made.
Unlike other platformer games that challenge you with rewarding gameplay that requires precise moves, Rayman's challenges and difficulties can be considered nonsense at best. Slippery slopes and spear-dug pits generously spread across the levels may kill you, but the game's weird system of spawning enemies whose location is virtually impossible to predict will certainly do so. p>
If Rayman is not One of the toughest games in history, he will definitely be among the most annoying games due to his difficulty.
10. Vagrant Story
Producer: Square/Producer: Square Product Development Division
Genre: Role-Making Action
For many years, Vagrant Story fans have hailed it as One of the most popular PlayStation games and One It has been called One of the most unseen role-playing games in history. This game deserves both terms, but I think it also deserves to be remembered as a game with an epic and irrational difficulty level.
First, the main challenge of Vagrant Story is learning the system. It's a unique struggle that often makes you feel helpless. Even after you understand the basics, the brutal giants, clever traps, and even ordinary enemies of Vagrant Story constantly make you wonder if you can really master what this game is going to do for you. Like the Dark Souls series, the difficulty of Vagrant Story is largely part of what makes the game work so well. However, appreciating it does not make the game easier.
9. Heart of Darkness ( Heart of Darkness )
Producer: Infogrames Multimedia/Producer: Amazing Studio
Genre: Scuba Diving p>
Have you ever heard the name Dark Heart? I was not surprised. Even in its day, the title was relatively anonymous and is now remembered for its visuals, great story, and interesting gameplay. However, more than anything else, Dark Heart is best known for its unrivaled level of difficulty. Easily pass behind. Enemies appear in front of you in the initial stage as if you were experiencing a bullet-fired shooting game. However, the way the game is controlled is very chaotic. Even if you know what you're doing, it 's incredibly difficult to react properly at that moment in the game.
After that, things get a little better, but I can still say that most gamers Do not wait for the labyrinth stages, confusing puzzles and often annoying controls.
8. Blasto ( Blasto )
Producer: Sony Interactive Entertainment/Producer: Sony
Interactive Studios America
Genre: third-person shooter platformer
If we want to be fair to this game, we must say that this action game in The era of PlayStation 1 was released, probably a generation earlier than when technology could properly support it. In another timeline, this effect might have been as good as the first Recht and Clone game. To be fair, there was the late Phil Hartmann in this game, who always went beyond what he did, including the voice acting in the game.
However, let Let's mention Blasto's main reputation, which is One of the worst controls in PlayStation 1 games. It's bad enough that the slow motion of the game and its moving camera make even the simplest parts of the game challenging, but the fact is that even when you try to make a simple jump, you will repeatedly fail and die. Makes it so much worse.
This is a really painful and difficult experience that trapped many uninformed gamers with its charms and good ideas.
7. Einhander ( Einhander )
Producer: Sony Computer Entertainment/Producer: Square
Style: Scrolling Shooting
Although Ainhander is not the most difficult 2D shoot-up game ever made, it was as popular as many users. The original attracted PlayStation 1, who were not at all ready for the difficulty level of the game. Have a harder time working with them. This is while asking you to go to some deadly areas of the game. The impact of this design decision is really seen in the game's ultimate giants, which oblige you to destroy the huge enemies that use complex and variable attack strategies.
This is a really great game to pass. Time stands still, but do not let its appearance fool you into thinking that Einhender is anything less than a classic hard game similar to the hard-hitting NES.
6. Annoying Stick ( Irritating Stick )
Producer: Jaleco Entertainment/Producer: Saurus
The name of the game speaks for itself, but in order to deeply understand how difficult this game is, you have to Experience it for yourself.
Irritating Stick is like a combination of Super Monkey Ball game and Operation board game. In this game you have to guide a small ball through a series of winding paths that leave almost no room for you to move safely. Worse, you have to put up with the clock that is constantly ticking. If you want to have a chance to advance, you only have to become a professional in the first few stages of the game. Of course, real mastery may not be possible for most players, as each stage adds new difficult things that make you wonder how you can get through it in time.
In the meantime, you should definitely The narrator of the game should also make a special mention that when you are nearing the end of a stage, they shout "Be careful, you are very close to the end", which will greatly disturb your concentration and nerves.
5. Incredible Crisis
Producer: Tokuma Shoten/Producer: Polygon Magic
Remember the scene in Solid Metal Gear where you had to press the circle button to survive the torture machine? Push in until you feel your wrist is breaking? Now, imagine that particular scene is scattered throughout most of the game. Then you get to the "Incredible Crisis" game.
The Incredible Crisis Game has a variety of mini-games that often require you to push buttons in a row as fast as you can. Give. No, let me get back to you. No human can be expected to pass the test that destroys fingers. Even if some of the game's mini-games do not require you to press buttons in a row, it means that it will destroy you in another strange way.
There is a strange set of skills needed to pass this game This means that the game may even disappoint gamers looking for such challenges.
4. Tomb Raider 3 ( Tomb Raider 3 )
Producer: Eidos Interactive/Producer: Core Design
Genre: Action Adventure
Yes, the first two games in the Tomb Raider series are tough. However, part of their challenge (especially today) stems from their ambitious design, which often went far beyond what you might expect from video game technology at the time.
However, from Difficulty, the attacker of Tomb 3 was on another level. Even if the game did not add the ridiculous number of spears, stones, pits, and traps that waited until Lara Croft's life ended before she knew it was there, the design of the puzzling stages was trying to do something you do not know in the middle of a What Dark Tomb do you do and what awaits you made it unbearable and difficult even for fans of the secret series.
Despite the good moments in this game, really recommending this game to It is difficult for anyone but a masochist. I really do not know if this game can be completed without help.
3. Nightmare Creatures ( Nightmare Creatures )
Producer: Activision/Producer: Kalisto Entertainment
Genre: Fear and Survival
In the early days of PlayStation 1 games, many developers still could not, in principle and structure, address some of the challenges involved. Guide your 3D design into action-adventure games. This means that any additional difficulties implemented could bring the level of challenges of some works to such an extent that a true and ideal experience would be almost impossible today.
In fact, I would like to say that the game "Nightmare Creatures" It can practically become a nightmare for you. What makes the hell of a game full of monsters worse is an adrenaline system that acts as a time constraint, forcing you to kill enemies as quickly as possible, even though you are often not ready for that limited time./p>
Some games throw you into the water to teach you how to swim, but this game is when you bend over to look at the water, dip your head under the water and hold it Picks because he basically does not want you to succeed in the game's challenges.
2. Tenchu: Stealth Assassins ( Tenchu: Stealth Assassins )
Producer: Activision/Producer: Acquire
The decline and decline of stealth genre games among the general flow of video games in recent years has long been fans It's disappointing with the style that puts such works among their best. However, it must be acknowledged that even the best stealth games were often difficult, as they could immediately discourage even some experienced gamers from playing.
While there is difficulty in many stealth games However, Tancho sometimes abuses this feature to remind you that you are weak. Maybe it's because most of us were just excited to be able to play the role of a scary killer ninja while experimenting with a video game, but the way Tencho wanted you to make it safe and secure was through a variety of trial and error tactics. To be able to get out of its many challenges alive, it kept many people from trying to figure out what they were doing wrong at the time.
Even after Appreciating Tencho for what he was and even realizing what the game expects of you, the game always found a way to force you to make that small mistake that would immediately end a round of defeat. Brought to you.
1. King's Field ( King's Field )
Producer: FromSoftware/Producer: FromSoftware
Is this a clich that puts the first of the most difficult PlayStation 1 games by the creators of Dark Souls, Framasoft Studio Give? Assume that this is the case, but it does not change the fact that even professionals in Dark Souls are really amazed by the difficulty of this game.
King's Field was very revolutionary for its time, meaning that many gamers At the start of the game, they simply did not know what to do in this title. However, what the most patient PlayStation 1 gamers have discovered is that King's Field is essentially a very harsh draft of Dark Souls, combined with the extremely difficult dungeon works of the dungeon crawler genre. Even though the ambitious 3D images of the game and the unfortunate result it showed did not pose any more challenges, the title's brutal struggles, multiple traps, confusing controls, deliberately slow game speed, and lack of orientation made even a hardcore computer gamer in a hurry. .
