Instead of getting them on playstation, I figured I might just get them on PC. I use a PS3 controller with DS3 tool and can use Joy2Key too if it's a necessity.
At first I was like:

I'd like to use my 360 pad with the old games. What's the best tool?

Modern controllers probably won't work natively. Tomb Raider came out back when game ports on PC's were commonly used.

Joy2Key would probably work, but I don't know how it handles analog sticks.

Edit: Also, do yourself a favor and ditch DS3 Tool for Better DS3.

Games like Severance: Blade of Darkness play with mouse and keyboard, even though the former is not used to look around. It has tank controls, and it's still a nice scheme to avoid that problem of multiple keys being pressed at once, benefiting from 2 or more mouse buttons and a wheel to scroll through weapons, running speed, etc.

The only thing that "tank control" games need is a quick turn feature that allows more than just 180º. Say you are running and approaching a corridor at 45º (holding W and A) and you press the quick turn key that adds the input angle to your running angle, bringing you to 90º and facing the corridor's depth.

They're perfectly playable if you have joytokey around and as long as your controller's digital pad isn't terrible like the 360's.
