Take a trip down memory lane with us as we recall the best Play Station games of all time...
The original Play Station was jam-packed with awesome games, wasn't it?
The player typically must complete a linear sequence of certain quests in order to reach the end of the game's story, although quests in some games such as Arcanum or Geneforge can limit or enable certain choices later in the game.
Many RPGs also often allow the player to seek out optional side-quests and character interactions.

A typical role-playing video game, NEO Scavenger has text on the right indicating what events have transpired, and gives the players options (bottom) based on their character's abilities. A role-playing video game (commonly referred to as role-playing game or RPG, and in the past was also known as computer role-playing game or CRPG) is a video game genre where the player controls the actions of a character (and/or several party members) immersed in some well-defined world.
Players explore a game world, while solving puzzles and engaging in tactical combat.
A key feature of the genre is that characters grow in power and abilities, and characters are typically designed by the player. Players control one or several characters by issuing commands, which are performed by the character at an effectiveness determined by that character's numeric attributes.
Quests of this sort can be found by talking to a non-player character, and there may be no penalty for abandoning or ignoring these quests other than a missed opportunity or reward.
