The 20 Most Satisfying Things You Ever Did On The Playstation

Killing Lara Croft and other highs from two decades on Sony's game-changing console, ranked 20-1

Most Popular

20 | Executing a perfect swan dive into a tropical lagoon in Tomb Raider. Or occasionally, when feeling sadistic, performing the same move onto a concrete floor and watching her body crumble into a sorry heap.

Sick, we know.

19 | Spending a serious amount of time discussing whether Max Payne looked better before or after he shaved his head and started wearing Hunter S Thompson shirts.

18 | The bit early on in Resident Evil when zombie dogs smash through the windows of a narrow corridor and it scares you so much you drop the controller – no matter how many times you've played it.

17 | Finally getting your hands on the M-79 rocket launcher in Syphon Filter 2 – then immediately missing your target and blowing yourself up.

16 | Watching the pornos in Duke Nukem. Hey, there was no internet in 1997, remember?

15 | The pure joy of finally spotting the Yeti on Red Dead: Undead Redemption, before shooting it in the head and skinning it.

14 | The satisfying crunch of mowing down a full line of Hare Krishnas in Grand Theft Auto.

They were being loud.

13 | Passing level 20 of the zombie survival mini game on Call Of Duty: Black Ops then dying on purpose because you’re “in over your head”.

12 | Trying hopelessly to fart your way through a difficult puzzle in Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee. It never worked, but it was funny.

11 | Hunting down and killing every innocent bystander on Hitman, purely so you can try their outfits on.

10 | Driving various comedy vehicles to the top of the Mount Chiliad in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas just to fling them off the ramp and parachute to the bottom. 

For entire afternoons at a time.

9 | Stabbing your opponent in the back in Bushido Blade, thus violating the sacred code upon which the entire game was built.

8 | Amazing cut scenes in Uncharted. The first in video game history you don’t want to skip so you can start killing things.

7 | The Zen-like tranquility of gliding Spyro the Dragon over a lush meadow.

6 | “Snake? Snake?! SNAAAAKE?!!”

Never has one man been mourned so frequently by so few.

5 | Pulling off a perfect handbrake turn in Wipe 2097 just as 'Loops Of Fury' by the Chemical Brothers was peaking.

4 | Laughing at the hilariously misspelt player names in Pro Evolution Soccer (Robbie Fooler, anyone?)

3 | Locking Winston Smith – Lara Croft’s tray-carrying geriatric butler – in the fridge in Tomb Raider 2. Poor old boy's been in there for 18 years.

2 | Scoring an outrageous goal against your friend in FIFA ’14 and rather than celebrating, just nodding as if you expected it to happen all along.

1 | Watching this harrowing scene from Final Fantasy 7, feeling your heart split in two and vowing terrible vengeance (to be gained after approximately another 300+ of game play).

RIP Aerith Gainsborough. We'll always love you
