They included the wrong controller and a terrible roster of games.
Well there's a time and a place for that, and right now your gifs tilt your "question" into a smug rhetorical where you're fishing for "weak brand" type answers, especially with a baiting, baiting title like that.
Jumping Flash is a classic how dare youWell there's a time and a place for that, and right now your gifs tilt your "question" into a smug rhetorical where you're fishing for "weak brand" type answers, especially with a baiting, baiting title like that.
Back on topic, reviewing the final list of titles hold many that were generally niche releases. Many on my list either outsold, or were more identifiable to the PS1 brand than what was offered, and when you ask the general public to fork over that kind of cash and they can't recognize a good half of the selection, you're in trouble. Puzzle Fighter, Jumping Flash, Toshinden, Intelligence Cube, Rayman and GTA1 aint turning any heads.
NES classic was relatively praised for its emulation quality compared to the PS Classic. Plus it was cheaper, and earlier. I also think Nintendo fans are more rabbid with their appreciation of "classic" games.
Out of the 20 games on the PS Classic (western lineup), and the 20 best selling PS1 games, there is an overlap of 4 games. Many of the games included are ones the GP has never heard of (Persona 1, Mr. Driller, Intelligent Qube, Jumping Flash, BAT, etc.)
Out of the 20 games (it's 21 games but I'm excluding Star Fox 2 for obvious reasons, it isn't a classic by nature, but is still a selling point to consider) on the SNES Classic (western lineup), and the 20 best selling SNES games, there is an overlap of 10 games. Many of the games outside of the top 20 on the Classic are still considered classics by the GP (MMX, Super Metroid, Contra III, etc.)
Duds (imo) they included on the system: Mr Driller, Battle Arena Toshinden, Intelligent Qube, Jumping Flash, Revelations: Persona, Wild Arms, Rainbow Six, Grand Theft Auto
The PlayStation Classic is without a doubt the biggest flop of this generation. [/QUOTE]
I don't think he will ever grow up, got banned previously for his snarky tone. I think he created the thread to find people who will agree with another PS classic thread he created. He surely doesn't like PS Classic.
lol I forgot to end that sentence with "...as much as I love them". It's a classic for sure, but niche and won't be pulling in the numbers unfortunately. Same for something like Vib Ribbon which I would have adored, but know would elicit crickets in a game collection for the general audience.
I mean yeah, the intention is clear, the motivation even moreso. Just thought I'd call it out and spell out the tone for others just so they understand the level of discourse to be expected from him/her. As if the childish, catty gifs didn't already give it away, OP should know they aren't fooling anyone.
lol i missed a lot.NES classic was relatively praised for its emulation quality compared to the PS Classic. Plus it was cheaper, and earlier. I also think Nintendo fans are more rabbid with their appreciation of "classic" games.
But, you threw down the gauntlet for 20 actual classic PS1 games. Well, here's a list:
- Metal Gear Solid
- Tekken 3
- Final Fantasy 7
- Final Fantasy 8
- Final Fantasy 9
- Gran Turismo 2
- Wipeout 2097
- Wipeout 3
- Rage Racer
- Ridge Racer Type 4
- Castlevania SOTN
- Mega Man Legends
- R-Type Delta
- Tobal 2
- IQ: Intelligent Cube
- Kula World
- Um Jammer Lammy
- Resident Evil 2
Well, the list is more than 20 games and we could surely keep going. The success of the Playstation was largely built on third party games, but these games have aged just as well as Nintendo's in my honest opinion.
So did I damn... Probably could come up with a list of 50+ really solid PS1 titles.
The mass market didn't know, nor do they care about how good the emulation was.
As I said, it is when every PS Classic conversation was around how bad it played the games. Even if the mass market doesn't know what framerate is, they still look up reviews of stuff.The mass market didn't know, nor do they care about how good the emulation was.
For me PS1 and PS2's best games outside of Gran Turismo (then God of War on PS2) were third party titles like Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, Tomb Raider, GTA and Metal Gear Solid. It wasn't until PS3 that Sony established themselves as a worthy rival to Nintendo in terms of exclusive, first party content imo which is what causes the disparity in sales between the NES / SNES Classic and PS1 Classic.
They can't get rid of PS1 Classic consoles in the UK (a very strong PS1 / Playstation market in general) for £25... That really does say it all.
I'd say there are some Sony owned classics on PS1 but the best truly Sony's classics began with the PS2 with GT3/4, God of War 1/2, Shadow of the Colossus, Ico, Twisted Metal Black and others.
This, when I think about games I loved from the PS1 most of them aren't on the ps classic.It failed because the games they chose were not representative of the PSX era. Crash Bandicoot and Spyro trilogies should have been there, including all PSX Twisted Metal, Syphon Filter, Spider-Man, FF7, FF9, Gran Turismo 1+2, Tekken 2+3, Chrono Cross, Ape Escape, Silent Hill, Xenogears, etc... The NES and SNES mini classics were successful because of the games they put in there.
