    I guess seeing as I bought a PS3 to keep me sane while my new pc is waiting for stuff, needed a thread about it.

    I got Dead Space 2 with the console, but havn't played it yet, and bought Super streetfighter 4, tekken 6, blazblue:CS, and MVC3.

    Any recommendations for good games/ps1 classics I should try out?

    multiplayers only or? if multiplayer I would really recommend Killzone 3 unless you already have a good shooter.

    I guess Red Dead redemption is kinda cool over MP aswell, but I really just got it for the single player.

    For SP only: God of War 3 and MGS 4. Other then that I dunno really, I've got Grand Tourismo here aswell and IL-2 Sturmovik both nice but nothing special.

    Agreed except GT5 (hate racing games), also think about LBP2. Don't bother with Move as the games are wank.

    Good MP games not mentioned above, MAG (underrated), BBBC2. RPG's wise apart from DAO and ME2 look at Demon Souls (challenging)!

    I remember beating it when I was a lot younger, I actually booted up the ROM after you mentioned it and holy shit.

    I must have been like a Jedi as a kid :(

    @Shantotto - Try and get a copy of Alisia Dragoon if your going to be replaying of Sega Megadrive classics. That was probably one of the best games they ever made for that console.

    Serious question.....

    Does anyone know if there is a USB version of the old Megadrive 3button controller ?

    I have found like old 6 button dreamcast controllers, but looking for a 3button pad to use with my emulator.

    The 6 button megadrive controllers were the best, silence :p

    Both xbox and ps3 versions of the madcatz fightpad work on PC and it's very similar button setup to that gorgeous megadrive 6 button pad.

    I have 4 original 3 button megadrive controllers but yea, USB wasn't invented then so they only work with the megadrive, not with the emulator on the PC. Unfortunately a lot of my cartridges are broken or lost now as the console is coming up on 20 years old so I play a lot more on the emulator than the console itself. Just wish you could get a replica of the 3button pad with a USB connection. Would be epic. For now I just use an xbox 360 controller.

    I always say this on megadrive threads but megalomania was the one game I wasted my school days on. I personally blame that game for me only getting 96% in my maths kicks but not revising trigonometry.

    I'm sure you could find one, I'm almost certain you could get a USB Saturn controller which is at LEAST as good, especially if you get a japanese version.

    Yes, you can Cheap as hell too

    saturn controllers are probably my all-tme favourite


    But yeah, the tiny 6button Mega Drive pad is still awesome.

    Megadrive controllers were the pinnacle of gaming pads :p

    These are the best controllers you can buy now imo, the D-pad is elevated so you can get quite precise inputss, they have a shoulder button on each side as well, and selectable turbo per button.

    Ideally yes, but have you seen the price of a decent stick? It's like £150 on this side of the pond :p Need to decide how much I want to play fighting games before actually buying one lol.
