I wish DOOM 3 BFG had Final DOOM as well. If it did, the entire released series would have been accounted for (aside from DOOM64) would have been in one collection. It seems odd to me to leave out that one. Those were the craziest, most difficult levels, they would have been great co-op. But I’m still buying it. Great collection.

This will actually be the first time I’ve ever been able to play the original DOOMs online, and I’ve played these games since their release. A great new aspect to nostalgia.

@60 That’s what I’m wondering. Doom 1 & 2 are already available separately on XBLA.

@59 Hmm.

@40 The reason we don’t have Suikoden II seems to be that it’s broken on the PS1 release. Apparently, there are some bits with garbled text, things not working overall. As for the other games I’m not really sure what the hold up is on them. I hope this is some sort of help…

When are we ever going to get the orignal Ape Escape on the Psn. Is there some problem with the game? Also why don’t you try putting the Dark Cloud Series as ps2 classics. Some of those game are a bit hard to find if you aren’t buying it online.

@52, Shakatak- no clue. They’re def. putting this app on hold; it’s taking longer than I expected.

@53, Ryumaou- it’s a platformer in which you lead a princess through levels full of enemies & traps. The graphics are unique- the world is in a charcoal, b & w scheme. I think Famitsu (sp) rated it 8/8/7/8 or something in that range. I’ve read that the price will be $20.

I’m normally not the one to complain, but I’m getting tired of certain games being called PSone Classics and PS2 Classics. The Chronicles of Narnia a classic? Really? Last time I checked, movie-games are amongst the bottom of the barrel, and the Chronicles of Narnia is right there amongst the rest of them, maybe even just barely creeping over.

Don’t stain a word like “Classic” with mediocrity. It’s no different than calling the Chronicles of Narnia movie a classic. Not that it’s a terrible movie, by any means, but to place it on the same level as something like One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Schindler’s List, or Shawshank Redemption is just absurd.

Let’s respect the actual classic-nature of our videogames and leave the word “Classic” for games that truly deserve the title, even if it is only for a shop-promotion on the PS Store.

@Complainers: if the release isn’t your thing,good for you.Please keep your sorrowful and/or rageful words to yourself.If you hate Sony’s effort to bring us more dl game more frequently than other systems then please write it down on paper,not on the forums.:Noone likes a buzzkill.Or buzzards ether…Main noob killer of bl2 I tell ya.
This drop seems fair to the fans whom this interest,I hope the next drop is my type of drop :D
P.S. Should you really talk down to Sony when your a offical PS+ subscriber?Kinda makes you look bad.

@72 “Hot” is a buzz word. “Fantastic!” is a buzz word. “Stellar” is a buzz word. “Amazing” is a buzz word.

“Classic” should not be stained for the use of buzz. We don’t call Classical Music classical because it’s a means of trying to sell more. Classical Music is called classical because it has stood the test of time and is still amazing. Classic Rock, Classic R&B, and Classic Jazz are all in the same boat (As well as others).

When I think Classic Games, I have a pretty broad list in my head from from 7 different generations of console and PC games. The PS2, in particular, has a TON of classic-natured games that deserve to be called “classic”. My problem is in calling these mediocre (And some times downright terrible) games “Classic” as a means of trying to get a sale out of a poor sap who doesn’t know that the game isn’t a classic by any means. What Sony should be doing is putting their actual classics (Of which there are a ton) on the PS Store for new generations to check out, not mediocrity to try and make a quick buck.

Sony isn’t the only company doing this. Nintendo and Microsoft have also lazily labeled crappy games as “Classic” all too often. It’s just seriously getting annoying.

+ CrimsonDream24 on October 15th, 2012 at 4:26 am said:

@71 No one is even calling Narnia a Classic. “PS2 Classics” is just a label used to indicate a PS2 game released on the PSN. I repeat: They are not calling Narnia a classic. I’m as big of fan of the PS2 and classic games as a whole as anyone else is, but you are overreacting on an unbelievable scale.


89

+ lisatsunami on October 15th, 2012 at 5:13 am said:

@87, Crimson, I have only been a gamer for 4 years so I don’t know most of the games that so many demand be brought to PSN & Vita. I’m excited about the upcoming PS2 remake, Okami, because I played a few minutes of it on the wii. I try to research games before I invest, but maybe some would be fooled by the word “classic”. Of course we all know it’s just a marketing ploy. They’re not going to call them PS2 Retreads.

I think Ultimate is just someone who respects words, the proper use of our language. He’s fighting a war that’s long been lost, but I respect his intention.

@81: You must not listen to stations that play “Classic Rock”. They just play anything from a certain era. Same with the others.

Classical Music isn’t relevant.

Classics is a buzzword whether you want it to be or not, and it’s one of the few good marketing choices Sony has done. Only people mad are people who don’t grasp what it means or like you, who don’t want to accept what it means.

You don’t have to accept it. It won’t change.
