    Parappa the Rapper/UmJammer Lammy (Lammy is better, but Parappa is still an A+ game)
    Vib Ribbon
    Klonoa: Door to Phantomile
    The Raiden Project (contains perfect arcade ports of Raiden 1 and 2)
    Torneko: The Last Hope
    No One Can Stop Mr. Domino
    Jumping Flash 1/2 (You only need to play one of them unless you REALLY like the gameplay)
    King's Field (the original Japanese game, not the sequel)
    Ape Escape (will be tough if you don't have a controller with dual sticks)
    Nekketsu Oyako
    Ridge Racer

    The Crash Bandicoot games are some of the most overrated pieces of shit in the medium.

    Parasite Eve and Ape Escape
    I would argue that Parasite Eve is probably the best Squaresoft game on the Playstation. You can't go wrong with it. Its gameplay is sort of like ATB combat except you can move around the battlefield during fights and avoid enemy attacks by moving out of the way. The music and atmosphere make it a very relaxing game to play too.

    And Ape Escape is one of the best 3D platformers you can play. Its very challenging and very rewarding to capture monkeys in later levels.

    Why not just do your research instead following other people's opinion? The internet have all the information you need.

    Most these games are listed by fake ass gamers. Gamers that just jump on the hype bandwagon because everyone else is doing it. It's the main why Final Fantasy 7 is labeled as the best Final Fantasy game.
