The forthcoming PlayStation Classic has drummed up nostalgia for the olden days of 3D games, but most of them are unplayable now. Here are the 90s games you could still enjoy
Nostalgia can be a terrible thing. The stuff you loved when you were young doesn’t always hold up to modern scrutiny, as you will know if you have ever tried rewatching Knight Rider.
Last week, Sony announced the PlayStation Classic, a mini version of the original PlayStation from 1994, complete with 20 built-in games. The full list has yet to be announced, but the five confirmed games are Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4 and Wild Arms. And though we are all thinking, “Ah yes, I loved Ridge Racer; Final Fantasy was legendary”, the reality of early 3D visuals is gruesome and the absence of analogue controllers will seem like a cruel joke to our soft 21st-century hands.
