About This Club

A special place for people who collect PlayStation stuff.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. And here is a new photo for the PS1 Star Wars games. I posted this one earlier, but this is updated with all black label games.
  3. Here are a few other recently finished sets. Road Rash Pro-Pinball
  4. That's really cool. Thanks for sharing the info and pic about the inlay. I never noticed that.
  5. This is the subset for the A1 Games/Agetec releases in the US. This publisher was known for brining Japanese games over to the US. These games all use a unique template with a color code on the top for the genre. Most of these games have a super generic title such as Racing, Bowling or Boxing. Also, most of the games don't use the standard PS1 inlay as seen in the second picture. These are the only US PS1 games I can think of that don't use it.
  6. reminds me of when i played gt5 on ps3. there were, 220 mph max @ daytona, rooms. the settings for gear/suspension were cool. the building cars and sponsor thing seems cool but like you said what a time sink.
  7. I enjoyed 2002 because the simulation mode was based around running the race team. You had to build cars and repair them after races. Building and repairing took time and resources meaning that you had to mange everything extremely carefully. If you started to build a new race car on week 10, it might not be ready until week 12 which means you had another race to worry about before the car was done. You also had to keep sponsors happy or they would back out and you could lose precious earnings. The other big thing was that the default settings for each car were crap. If you used the default settings, you would be lucky to finish in the top 35. You had to take the time to practice and adjust settings to make your car faster. I had a notebook for every track with the settings I used (I still have that notebook today). It was a very difficult, yet rewarding game to play. Unfortunately, I would never have the time and energy to put into a game like that today.
  8. thunder 2004 (xbox) is my favorite nascar game. they should have come with a 12 pack of mnt dew/budwieser.
  9. And also, here is every single NASCAR game released on the PS1 (including the Collector's Edition of '98 and the Legacy Edition of '99 with soundtrack CD). Lots of games here which isn't surprising considering that NASCAR was pretty huge in the late 90s and 2000s. NASCAR Thunder 2002 is my all time favorite NASCAR game, but I prefer the PS2 version because of the full 43 car field. NASCAR Rumble is an interesting title as it's actually a Mario Kart clone. It's basically Mario Kart (including items and weapons), but with NASCAR drivers (Mario Kart is much better if you haven't already guessed). NASCAR Racing and NASCAR Heat are the only non-EA NASCAR games on the PS1.
  10. This is another mini sub set that popped into my head the other day. The "Car Magazine Presents" games. Both Road & Track and Car and Driver sponsored racing games on the PS1 with Road & Track sponsoring the original Need for Speed and Car and Driver sponsoring Gran Tour Racing '98. Obviously NFS spawned into a huge racing series, but I don't believe R&T had their name on any sequel. I'm guessing that GTR98 was meant to start their own series (based on the inclusion of the year), but it never took off enough to justify a sequel. I actually played GTR98 a ton back when it was new, but the game hasn't aged well and I would rather play NFS today.
  11. My favorite sub set. Namco with Guncon sets:
  12. And here is one more subset completed this weekend. This is every game developed by SingleTrac for the PS1, which also just so happens to be every game developed by SingleTrac except for one game which was only released on PC (Outwars). If you can't tell from the games pictured here, SingleTrac was very good to the PS1.
  13. This is a sub set that I've been looking forward to completing. All 11 Collector's Edition 3 packs for the PS1 along with the 2 Twin Packs that I pictured a few weeks ago. The first CE that I ever bought was the GTA CE which was probably almost 10 years ago. Over the years I picked up a few others and even pieced 3 of these sets together (the ones that were pieced together have the proper packaging and SLUS numbers.
  14. Thanks. Lots of other sets are planned, but I'm just missing a game or two. I'm working on getting a proper list of developer and publisher for each game because I believe that will make up some more interesting sub sets. However, getting that information accurately is not easy. The Wikipedia list has numerous errors. Game-Rave has all of the information, but not in a way that can be easily collected. I might send send him an email and see if he has it in a spreadsheet or database that he can share.
  15. I love see-ing the mini "sets" together like this. Very cool - keep em coming!
  16. I've got a big subset that I'm looking forward to posting that I just recently finished, but I'm waiting on the final game to arrive in the mail. So for now, here are all of the Caesars Palace games.
  17. Cool Boarders collection. Parts 2, 3 and 4 also received GH versions. I'm only missing part 3 out of that group.
  18. Ah yes, a double pack of the two Sesame Street games that are basically two skins of the same engine, neither being very good!
  19. As far as actual green label Greatest Hits titles go, I have 79 out of 172 releases. However, I own several black label, long box, or CE versions of games that got a GH release. So if I wanted to make a subset of PS1 games that got a GH release but using any variant, I would only be missing 25 games. That might be a goal of mine to complete this year. Ultimately, it's my goal to get all of the following: All black label jewel cases All Greatest Hits All Collector's Editions/Twin Packs All long boxes Within some of those groups, there are some variants, but I'm not interested in going that far. For example, I own the black label, GH and CE for Tomb Raider II. However, the GH version of Tomb Raider II has like 3 or 4 variants with different demos available. I'm not going for all of those. So I own all of the Tomb Raider II versions I plan to get. I have a checklist for everything in case anyone is looking for a list. Total unique PS1 US titles - 1,284 Black label jewel cases - 1,242 Long box - 102 Greatest Hits - 172 Collector's Edition - 11 with 3 games each Twin Packs - 2 with 2 games each And just to clarify, the GH count of 172 does not include the Driver/Driver 2 Twin Pack since I count that separately under the Twin Packs. But the 172 does include the individual GH releases of Driver and Driver 2.
  20. Nice. Very cool. You must have collected a good chunk of the greatest hits titles doing these sets. Any thoughts about collecting them all as a set?
  21. And now that I have the Driver Twin Pack, I might as well update my Driver PS1 set. @Hammerfestus, I finally found one.
  22. Here is the "full set" of Twin Packs for the PS1. There were only two of these offered on the PS1. Oddly enough, the color scheme is different for each set. The Sesame Street Twin pack uses the white color scheme that the 3 game Collector's Edition sets used, despite not saying collector's edition anywhere on the box. The Driver Twin Pack uses the Greatest Hits green color scheme and says Greatest Hits in several areas on the box art. It's kind of strange how differently these two twin packs were handled. I'm hoping to show you a complete set of the Collector's Editions pretty soon. I'm only 3 sets away from having them all.
  23. Its a great game. Very low key and atmospheric.
  24. I picked up two new PS1 controllers. Both from Vintage Stock and both surprisingly cheap considering they weren't on sale or anything. First is the fishing controller which is good to have considering the number of fishing games on the system. Second is a MadCatz flight stick. I haven't seen this one before, but for $6 I figured why not? I doubt I will ever use it as the Sony dual flight stick is almost certainly a better controller, but I'll keep it in the collection anyway.
  25. I picked up Jedi Power Battles to round out the Star Wars sub set for the PS1.
  26. I've always avoided third party memory cards in the past, but this is clearly designed differently, so the third party nature doesn't bother me. I just don't know that I would use it enough to justify the money.
