Question Good PSX (one) games ? Links needed...

I'm just a beginner in PSone emulation and I use epsxe.
Who knows (really) good games for the Playstation ? I know Tekken 3 and the Tomb Raider series.

I wonder if there is any good game database in the net like hol (but maybe with gamer ratings)... ?

Who knows an easy PSone Controller to PC adapter schematic (one Controller would be enough for me) ?

Thanks !

My personal recommendations:

Parappa the Rappa. Very short but excellent. Dont know if it works on emus though as relies on timing/sync

Vandal Hearts - Turn based RPG - very simple to play. Ive completed it 3 times.

Wild Arms

Bust-A-Move.

Jim, nice link, sorting by "avg.score of all sites" is also interesting. I think it's better that "Tekken 3" in No.1...

Thanks to the others for the hints...

1. Tekken 3 PS Namco 27 8.1 95.3% 95.2%
2. Gran Turismo PS SCEA 25 8.2 94.6% 95.1%
3. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 PS Activision 36 8.3 94.0% 93.3%
4. Metal Gear Solid PS Konami 60 8.9 93.8% 93.4%
5. Final Fantasy VII PS SCEA 44 8.9 93.3% 92.9%
6. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater PS Activision 56 8.1 93.1% 92.8%
7. Chrono Cross PS Square Enix 70 8.7 92.3% 91.7%
8. Final Fantasy IX PS Square Enix 65 8.7 92.1% 92.4%
9. Resident Evil 2 PS Capcom 46 8.7 91.9% 91.7%

I have the PAL version but I'm emulating (with epsxe). Therefore I have no problems with the speed (adjustable) and which borders do you mean ?

Im only going by what I witnessed on a real PS. The PAL version had ugly borders at the top and bottom of the screen and gave the characters a squashed look. Maybe emu sorts this, I dunno.

Yep the PAL version sucks balls.

That's one of the reasons I never bought a PS2 either, damn shitey ports and lack of 60hz modes. booooooooo @ lazy arse companies.

Rant over... back on topic...

Vagrant Story rocks. Play it now.

If anyone wants to buy some original PSX games then Ive got some starting at £3.00 on bay this week.

Look in the 'for sale' section for links to my auction.

Just reading this thread made me get out my old Soul Blade cd. That game has one of the best startup sequences I've seen in a long time. Music and atmosphere are superb in that title.
