I recently picked up a playstation2, but was wondering what good oldies from a ps1 I might have missed. I would mainly want actiony-adventurey games, especially if they are old pc games put on the console. Ones that no longer work in xp, such as Crusader:NR for ps1. Are there others that were pc games or originals for the ps1 worth getting dirt cheap? Again, mostly action games or adventure games, but I'm open to suggestions. Thanks,

99% of my favorite PS1 games were RPG's, but there were a few other gems:

-  Tenchu:  Stealth Assassins
-  Skullmonkeys
-  Rally Cross
-  Einhander

As strange as it might sound, some of the best Playstation 1 games were the 3 Spyro games by Insomniac.  They went on to do the Ratchet & Clank games for the PS2.  Though they're technically "kid games" they're still excellent, funny platformers.

I loved the Spyro games on the PS1.  The graphics were pretty amazing for the time, the framerate was smooth, and they were not too difficult.  A lot of fun to be had there.

I loved the Gex series from Crystal Dynamics.  I also liked a couple of the Crash Bandicoot games and MedEvil.

Parappa the Rapper is great and the two Point Blank games by Namco are fun (they use the light gun).

Beyond that there are numerous SRPG's from Atlus, a few good RPG's localized by Working Designs, all the Square RPG's, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
