Traditional Sports

Of the 200+ sports games on Playstation, you can ignore any that aren’t on this list.  That’s easy!

Fighting

Almost any Playstation 1 Fighting Game is worth picking.   If you’re in doubt and can’t / don’t want to look it up, get it as long as you are only paying a buck or two.   Odds are you won’t lose money.  There are at least a few dozen more that sell for between $5 and $20,  and every single game on the list of 65 sells for at least $1.    The list below are only the best of the best.

Rival Schools $48.00
X-men vs Street Fighter $35.00
Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter $30.00
X-Men Children of the Atom $28.49
Guilty Gear $27.99
Street Fighter Collection 2 $25.00
Marvel vs. Capcom Clash of Super Heroes $23.74
Street Fighter The Movie $22.99
Street Fighter EX 2 Plus $20.06

Non-Sports

The “long tail” is absurd on these.  There are over 700 games on this particular list, with 50 selling for at least $30 and hundreds selling for more than $10.  While the odds aren’t blindly in your favor as they are with fighting games, I’d still take the risk every time.   

LSD: Dream Emulator [Japan] $299.99
The Misadventures of Tron Bonne $152.50
Suikoden II $145.00

A video game that simulates drugs.  Wow.
