10 PS1 Games We Hope Get A Remake Soon

The PS1 had a great lineup of games but some of them deserve a remake more than others. Here are 10 we hope we see soon.

The PS1 went down in history as one of the greatest consoles in the history of video games, and while things may have seriously developed since that point in time, many gamers still hold a very nostalgic place in their hearts for that console.

One of the reasons for that was because of how many amazing games were released on it, and because we are now in an era where old games are constantly being remade, there are many fans wanting to see some PS1 games be brought back to life on a modern platform.

Whether it is because of an amazing story, great gameplay, or just that they were tons of fun, within this list, we will rank 10 PS1 games that we want to see get remade.

10 Driver

Talk about a game that deserves to be remade, Driver was an instant hit on the PS1 with the first two games in the series really behind well ahead of their time in terms of gameplay, and how the cars were presented.

If the game could be brought back with today's technology and, most importantly, graphics, it would create for a fantastic game, especially since the original doesn't hold up particularly well.

Driver is just a good old-fashioned driving game without too many bells and whistles, and that isn't a bad thing because it focuses on driving itself, which would work well in today's gaming world.

9 Crash Bash

It feels like a matter of time until this one happens, doesn't it? We have had the N' Sane Trilogy be remastered as well as Crash Tag Team Racing, so why not complete the lot and give the fans what they want?

Crash Bash was one of the most popular video games on the PS1, mainly because it featured Crash Bandicoot himself, who was pretty much the mascot of the console and PlayStation in general.

But this game is just tons of fun, it isn't something that needs to be taken too seriously and works as a great party game for all the family to enjoy.

8 Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver

A slight change of pace from Crash Bash, another game that deserves to be remade is Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver, which was undoubtedly the best game of the series, with the classic hack-and-slash gameplay being done at its best.

That style of game hasn't gotten old, but bringing back one of the originals would be a great move and something that many gamers are eager to see happen in the near future.

Given that it spawned multiple sequels, it is clear that there was an audience begging for more at that time, and those fans will now have gone away.

7 The Lion King: Simba's Mighty Adventure

Disney video games were always incredibly popular but sadly nowadays they don't seem to be getting made as often, which is a real shame due to how big the company is and how popular the films end up being.

Thankfully, PS1 users got plenty of them with The Lion King: Simba's Mighty Adventure being the pick of the bunch, with this bringing the vibrant colors and fun feel that the movie did, while actually being very hard to play.

Because so many people grew up with this game and the fact Disney recently re-released the movie as live-action, now would be a perfect time to bring it back.

6 Fluid

This might seem like a really strange choice of a game to be remade, as Fluid isn't one of the first games that will come to mind when you're thinking of remaking classic PS1 games, but it certainly warrants it.

While simply guiding a dolphin around the ocean to pick up loops and beats as you create audio environments to swim through and around based on tempo might seem boring, this was actually a very relaxing and addictive game.

Imagining this remade with virtual reality seems like an amazing way of bringing remakes into the VR world, which is something that would no doubt be popular.

5 Spider-Man

While we have had plenty of different movies based on Spider-Man over the years, the Spider-Man video game for the PlayStation 1 remains one of the absolute best to ever be created.

Jam-packed with lots of different villains and a subtle level of sarcasm and wit that works perfectly the web-slinging character, and it would be amazing to see this version of the game remade at some point.

It doesn't need to have any film tie-ins or be voiced by Tom Holland, it just needs to be this version of the game that everyone loved so much, but with modern technology added.

4 Ape Escape

While people always think of Crash Bandicoot or Spyro The Dragon for the PS1, Ape Escape sadly gets overlooked, which is a real shame considering that it was a very popular game at the time.

The idea of a monkey-capturing video game being something that people would want to play might sound bonkers but it was a very fun adventure game that deserves to be given the HD treatment.

Sony is clearly enjoying the success of remaking PS1 games right now, so why not just extend it to Ape Escape as well, allowing a new generation of children to enjoy this classic?

3 Silent Hill

This game provided pure terror to gamers when it was first released on the PS1, so thinking about how much it could spook people with today's graphics and technology is the main reason for it to be remade.

The horror genre really has grown in popularity over the past decade, with countless films being made and it is starting to make a move into the gaming world as well.

That is why now would be the ideal time to bring back Silent Hill to the modern-day, and if packaged correctly, there is no reason this couldn't be a huge hit.

2 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2

While Tony Hawk might not be in the forefront of the pop culture world nowadays as he was during the peak of his gaming franchise, that doesn't mean that bringing back Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 wouldn't be a big hit.

This game (and the series in general) as so popular that it would get a massive reaction if it was announced for a remake, and with the possibility of adding new tricks, new skaters, and areas, there could be a lot of fun to be had with it.

Sure, skateboarding, in general, isn't quite as popular as it once was, but this game lives in the hearts of many fans and therefore it is one that deserves a remake.

1 Syphon Filter

There might be hesitation to make this simply because it is fairly similar to Metal Gear Solid, which is quite clearly a more well-known game. However, that doesn't mean that Syphon Filter wouldn't be a fun game to have remade.

Just because the two properties are similar doesn't mean they can't co-exist, and Syphon Filter certainly had a dedicated enough fanbase that it would be a popular decision to bring back this game.

This game is just endless amounts of fun to play, with the stealth-action being even more popular now than it was then, a remade version of this seems like a wise move.
