Pick your favourite Playstation 1 Game
Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
Colin McCrae Rally
Tomb Raider 3
Metal Gear Solid
Duke Nukem 3D
I would have picked Crash 3 to represent the series, but all three of the games are great.
I don't remember which podcast. but someone pointed out that the Crash Bandicoot games were the PS1's version of the Donkey Kong Country games - fast paced platforming. I had never made that comparison before, but they are right.
I missed out on the Oddworld games due to a lack of funding (not a lack of interest). I'll have to play them sometime. The new one was supposed to release on the Wii U, but hasn't yet.

Early backer of the CGE Adventures Atari game - Long time listener of the RGR Podcast.
Make sure you play Mass Destruction (PlayStation/Saturn). This is by far my new favorite PlayStation game. Hmm no Colony Wars on the list either. That's another game worth playing..one of the reasons I got a PlayStation back in the day. I can't say I agree with this list.
Looks ugly but is a lot of fun blowing shit up in this game. Mass Destruction:

Don't see any of my favorites in the list. I really enjoyed Rally Cross, the Twisted Metal series, and the Gran Turismo series. I remember trading in my barely-used Nintendo 64 for a PS1 at Funcoland due to the PS1 having so many more games for it at the time.
Too funny - 2 of the games I worked on in the top 10 I hope at least one was booted out!
Here is my personal top list for the PS1. I played A LOT of sports games in this era. Spyro does everything that Crash does better, and I believe it was done by the same company. It is almost like a Crash sequel with diff characters. I could never get through MGS, just too much stupid dialog. I would put MGS completely out. Regarding Driver, I never got out of the training missions.
I'm still listening to the podcast, but wasn't Chrono CROSS the one for PS1? Trigger is a SNES game!
1) Oddworld series
2) Resident Evil series
3) Spyro the Dragon series
4) Tomb Raider series
5) FIFA series (RTWC '98 is still my fav sports game eva!)
6) Madden NFL series
7) Wing Commander series
8 ) Colony Wars series
9) Fear Effect series
10) Syphon Filter series
Dino Crisis series
Point Blank series
Time Crisis series
NCAA Football Gamebreaker series
Jonah Lomu Rugby
Edit: I looked it up and Crash is Naughty Dog (Jak & Daxter) while Spyro is Insomniac (Ratchet & Clank). Spyro vs Crash was the platform war on PS1, and I pick Spyro.

Some of my favorites:
Metal Gear Solid
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater
Civilization II (missed the PC version, finished it on PS1)
Castlevania SOTN (one of my top games of all time)
