20 Original PlayStation Games Every Millennial Will Forever Remember

by Raf Stitt

Some of us forget this, but there was a special period of time after Nintendo's dominance of the video game industry, and before Microsoft and the Xbox jumped onto the scene.

During that period of time, the most popular gaming systems came from our friends at Sony.

In 1994, Sony introduced us the first Playstation, which changed the way we played video games forever.

The original console turns 20 years old today.

The Playstation helped raise Millennials, so in honor of its 20th birthday, here are some games we wish Playstation would bring back from that legendary system. #NeverForget


Who says dragons can't be cute? The little purple dragon that had to save the dragon race was a baller.

Tomb Raider

Lara Croft was like the James Bond of video games; all the guys wanted to be with her and all the girls wanted to be her.

Crash Bandicoot

Crash Bandicoot was a G -- there's really no other way to explain him. It's pretty obvious why we want this game back.

Old-School Madden

Remember when the Madden games had John Madden on the cover?

Soul Blade

This game was like Tekken, but with swords instead of just fists. It launched a pretty popular series, but this was the best one.

Final Fantasy Series

Final Fantasy was around before the first Playstation and it's still around. However, VII- IX, which were all released for the Playstation, were by far the best.

Resident Evil

Most of us forget this was a video game series before it was a movie series. Let's be real: The video games were much better.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater

Tony Hawk made skateboarding incredibly popular during the late 90s and early 2000s. The early Pro Skater games just solidified that.

Metal Gear Solid

The badass story of Solid Snake taking down terrorist group Foxhound is still one of the best to come from Playstation.


I'm still not sure what Rayman was or what he did, but I do remember having a whole lot of fun playing this game.


Back when the "Rugrats" were killing it on Nickelodeon, a game featuring our favorite foursome was released for the Playstation.


This game was like midway between traditional racing games and the GTA games. Thanks for providing that bridge, Driver.

PaRappa the Rapper

PaRappa was one of the first music-based video games. The fact that it was about a rapping dog just makes it that much better.

Gran Turismo

This is another game that's had a whole lot of other games in the series, but we still want the original back.

Twisted Metal

This game lived up to its name. What was the deal with those creepy clowns?

Cool Boarders

The popularity of Tony Hawk also led to other extreme sports getting some love. This snowboarding game was the best out of the others.

Medal of Honor

Forget about Call of Duty and Battlefield; Medal of Honor was the OG of war zone first-person shooter games.


Frogger was around for a while, but for some reason, when the game came to Playstation, it blew up in popularity.


The concept of the game was very simple: Press the buttons to make your character dance and win dance-offs. It was like Street Fighter, but with dance battles.


This game was kind of like a low-beta version of Final Fantasy. But that doesn't mean it wasn't a classic we all loved.
