Definitely Sony. You can buy a game once and play it on PS3, PSP and vita for no extra charge.

I am pretty sure buying FF7 and being able to play it anywhere isn't the best reason to state. I mean really, what else are you nostalgic about from PSX? All the best RPGs were just remade from SNES for it anyways.

aside from FF7, on PSN you're missing Wild ARMS, Wild ARMS 2, Xenogears, FF9, FFTacitcs, FF8 (eh, for some people), Chrono Cross, Threads of Fate, SaGa Frontier 1 and 2, Vagrant Story, Legend of Mana, Parasite Eve 1 and 2, Grandia, Suikoden, Shin Megami Tensei, SMT:Devil Children, Twisted Metal 1 and 2 (although they really should have 3 and 4), Tekken 2, Darkstalkers 1 and 2, Resident Evil 2 and 3, Oddworld Abe's Exodus, Oddworld Abe's Odyssey, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Intelligent Qube, Jumping Flash 1 and 2, Metal Gear Solid, Spyro 1 and 2, Silent Hill, Crash 1, 2, 3, Crash Team Racing (surprisingly one of the best Kart racers around, but overlooked since it was released in the same gen as Mario Kart 64), Myst, and a bunch of others.

all the italicized are PS1 RPGs, the genre boomed on PS larger than ever before, and i'm actually leaving quite a few out. it had a mind numbingly huge RPG library.

Nintendo, considering their library goes back 10-11 years before PSX.

Nintendo has the most classics and most likely always will

Wouldn't nostalgia be more based on when you were born and what you started with? Like for me it would be NES and SNES that brings the most nostalgia, but not for the other 20 year old who started with maybe the PSX.


But honestly, i feel the PS1/N64 generation games simply aged worse then the SNES stuff.
Going back to the high end 16bit 2d games is usually a lot easier then going back to a 3d game with shaky framerate, pop in, blocky low poly models, and pixelated/blurry textures.
