The original PlayStation is littering with classics, but there are so many forgotten gems on the console that you may have missed. Join us in this celebration of some of the console’s most underrated cult games you’ve got to play!

Beyond the Beyond: This one gets a lot of flack because it wasn’t Wild Arms or Final Fantasy VII. On it’s own merits, it’s an old-school RPG with a fun story. It’s worth playing.

Blasto: This one was hilarious, thanks to the voice acting of the late Phil Hartman, but was also a cool experience overall.

The Adventures of Lomax: One of the last 2D side-scrollers of the era, Lomax could have easily came out on the SNES, but it’s a great game on the PlayStation, from an amazing team.

Hardball 99: A great retro baseball experience on the Genesis, PC and SNES, the PlayStation version of Hardball may be one of the best baseball games on the console and is super deep with content.

Jackie Chan Stuntmaster: Members of this team went on to work on classics the likes of Hulk: Ultimate Destruction and Bully. This one is just as fun and totally will hook ya in.
