As a staunch Nintendo head within the early console days, I’d say my affection for PS1-era video games is… current, however not significantly palpable. For me, the PlayStation One was largely a machine to play Remaining Fantasies VII via IX on, and never a lot else (it was a really belated and low cost second-hand buy, I ought to be aware, and video games have been nonetheless sufficiently costly again then that sustaining two wholesome recreation libraries for each the household N64 and my new Squall field was nigh on not possible). Nonetheless, I have been more and more fascinated by the revival of PS1-era video games in recent times, and it has been fascinating to see which trendy video games have been “demade” on this model – see Bloodborne PSX – and which of them have made it their very own from the off – see Signalis, Heartworm, and plenty of others.
Crow Nation is the most recent recreation I’ve seen to take up the PSX mantle, and it combines the chunkiness of Remaining Fantasy VII-style character fashions with the dirty survival horror of one thing like Resident Evil to good impact. Made by SFB Video games, the identical devs wot made the additionally wonderful Tangle Tower, it is presently acquired an excellent demo up on Steam in the meanwhile, and it is acquired me considering: what do you want most about PS1-era video games on PC, and which of them are your all-time favs?
