PS1 Spyro
PS2 Devil May Cry 3
PS3 Warhawk
PS4 Killzone Shadowfall

For the most part, these are not my favorite games for the system. Some of them I haven't even played.

I *think* these are mostly games I first saw advertized with the system or saw a lot of playtime of pre-release, with DMC3 being the notable exception.

I only like the ones that come to mind for PS1 and 2, I also do not know why the games for PS3 / PS4 are the ones that come to mind first...

Since some did handhelds, too:
PSP: LocoRoco
PSV: Super Monkey Ball Banana Splitz

PlayStation 1 - Driver. My nephew could not get off the training stage to actually play the game so it was down to me (he is 10 years younger). Completing that part was enough for it to have a lasting memory but the fact that the game was awesome the reward was worth it. Bet it doesn't hold up today though.

PlayStation 2 - GTA Vice City. The 80's vibe, soundtrack and some really funny dialogue plus the opportunity for mayhem and riding around in luxurious cars. Absolute gem of a game. Was even better when it got an upgrade on the xbox.

PlayStation 3 - Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - Loved the game. An all round action adventure platformer with some likeable characters and locations that made you want to take the scenic route.

PlayStation 4 - Uncharted 4. I still have nearly all of the big hitters to play but I chose this as a starting point. Loved some of the set pieces but found it overall rather repetitive and boring. Also I really thought he was going to die at one point during the game and if he had I think it would have been a really memorable game despite the flaws. But he didn't.

Forbidden memories was no fucking joke. That game would beat you the fuck down.

Ps1- resident evil.

Ps2- haunting ground

Ps3- metal gear solid 4 guns of the patriots.

Ps4- the last of us.

PSP- persona 4 golden.

Vita- tearaway

Each of those were the ones that really stuck out to me for whatever reason. Especially resident evil. I was at a game store my friend ran when it came out and we smoked weed in the bathroom and were looking at a magazine about it and were so excited as we hadn't seen anything like it. But his store were getting theres a few days late so he gave me money for 2 copies and said if I went to babbages and got 2 copies I could have one. He started it up on the stores test ps1 and it looked so cool. I had to stop watching him and went home to play mine in peace and quiet.
