The new Playstation Plus Premium is a great tool for discovering classic video games. There are obviously many missing from the available catalogue, but players can still access a nice selection of games from their childhood or which they have never been able to play until now. Enough to make a small list of must-discover games.

Although it has lost some of its luster over the years, the Tekken license remains inextricably linked to the Playstation 1. It is therefore normal to advise you to take a look at Tekken 2 and a controller. It’s true that this isn’t the fighting game that’s aged best on the machine, and there have been episodes more significant than this, but it remains a monument of its time that’s always keen to be discovered.
4- Wild Arms
The PS1 has been home to many JRPG licenses, most notably Final Fantasy, but that wouldn’t do games like Wild Arms justice. Especially since it is possible to discover its first installment on the PS Plus Premium and see for yourself. With its more than charming looks and its western atmosphere, coupled with a lot of magic, it is an excellent role-playing game that is nevertheless very enjoyable to play.
3- Jack and Daxter (1 to 3)
Although the Naughty Dog series is no longer used, old players remember an excellent trilogy with two atypical heroes. A more than entertaining platform game that has made Playstation 2 owners happy.
2- Monkey Escape (1 and 2)
If there’s one weird series, it’s Ape Escape. A young boy must catch intelligent monkeys using various devices, each more eccentric than the last. The first installment of the series on Playstation 1 was above all an opportunity to promote the new Dualshock with the arrival of its two joysticks. A winning bet for a series that will find it difficult to renew itself through episodes but remains a beautiful nugget to rediscover.
1- Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
Another series born with Oddworld on Playstation: Abe’s Oddysee. Our hero, who doesn’t appear to be one, must save his fellow creatures through a platform game and puzzles designed around Abe’s mind control powers. A title that surprised more than one player at the time and which remains a Playstation classic in the truest sense of the word.
