In all the concerns with the actual emulation of PlayStation Classic, the choice of 20 games has been examined for dust. Although there are many actual "classics" there (and overlooked games that deserve a second life like Jumping Flash and Intelligent Qube ), many big ones missed the cut. Apparently they were actually on the chopping board at first.
According to a discovery that was made using the source code for PlayStation Classic, people have found that Sony actually tested many other games on the system. The big omissions are things like Crash Bandicoot 1-2, PaRappa Rapperen and Tomba but there are some others who cut me deeply personally.
I mean ] Ergheiz How amazing (if impossible) would it be to look at Classic? I feel like I was living on an island that played the crazy game by myself half the time. Gran Turismo ? Well, it's one of the no-brainers I said should have done it. The same goes for Medievil and for that matter Kagero, Mega Man Legends, Fighting Force, Parasite Eve and many more games that still hold up.
