The PSX had it all back in the day. There was hardly a game that didn't show up on that system. Games weren't driven by sequel-itis back then, it was the first fully 3D generation and people were trying out tons of new ideas. Gameplay wasn't perfected but there was a ton of variety. It was cool to see people come up with tricks to make those shitty 3D graphics look better than they should have. But back then it was interesting enough to actually see a texture on a polygon.
Haha even Battle Arena Toshinden seemed like the greatest thing back at the PSX launch (especially compared to Virtua Fighter on Saturn).
