PlayStation

Sony’s PlayStation brand is now 20 years old. To celebrate that, Sony Japan asked users to complete a survey asking them what their favourite PlayStation games are, what games they felt surpassed other media, and which games they’d love to see remade using today’s technology. Their results are mostly rather predictable; Japanese people love Dragon Quest, and – like much of the rest of the world – want a shiny new remake of Final Fantasy VII.

Here are the results of the survey:

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
