The PlayStation One is filled with classics, but we here at Old School Gamer are all about the Gems in the rough baby. So here are five worth digging through the bargain bin at your local game store.

Beyond the Beyond: This game gets such. Bad rap, but it’s a tribute to amazing SNES JRPGs. It doesn’t have great graphics, but it does have a fun story and an amazing score.

WWF in Your House: The spiritual successor to WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game, it’s more of the same over-the-top fighting fun. However, the sound check option makes for some fun times. You can actually run through all the theme music and sound effects used in the game!

Blast Chamber: This is best played multiplayer. It’s ugly, but it’s a lot of fun.

Forsaken: Hardcore gamers are well aware of how awesome this is, but so many never experienced it.

MLBPA Bottom of the Ninth: Easily the best baseball game on the console. Now that’s saying something.
