Best of the PlayStation Store: PSOne and PS2
Part One of Three.
09.11.16 - 6:02 PM

Now that the current generation of home consoles is well and truly in swing, it's safe to say that the sun has finally started to set on the PlayStation 3. But that doesn't mean it's all over yet; in fact, it's the perfect time to look back at the PS3's excellent Classics library of digital PS1 and PS2 titles.

Our editorial department put their collective heads together to vote on the staggering range of retro RPGs that Sony made available between 2006 and 2016, and they came up with a list of the 30 crucial offerings worth your time. And, of course, a good deal of these titles are also playable on PSP and/or PS Vita!

Today, we bring you the first grouping of those games, but keep an eye here tomorrow and the next day for parts two and three. This isn't a ranked list, so don't worry if your favorite shows up today — or if it's not featured until day three.
