When Sony originally unveiled the PlayStation Classic, the company only revealed five of the 20 PlayStation games that would come bundled with the console. Now, however, Sony has revealed the full list of 20 classic PlayStation games you’ll soon be playing…

What Games Come With the PlayStation Classic?

On the PlayStation Blog, Sony has revealed all 20 of the PlayStation games that come with the PlayStation Classic. There are some classics in there, including Final Fantasy VII, Grand Theft Auto, and Resident Evil. But there are some obvious omissions.

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Mr Driller
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  • Rayman
  • Resident Evil Director’s Cut
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken 3
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
  • Twisted Metal
  • Wild Arms

People will rightly ask why titles such as Vagrant Story, Crash Team Racing, and Parappa the Rapper are missing off the list. And also ask why the first title in some series has been chosen over its more critically acclaimed sequels.

Still, it’s important to remember that even if you take the hardware out of the equation you’re only paying the equivalent of $5/game here. So there’s bound to be some decidely average also-rans bundled in with the absolute classic slices of gaming history.
