Most Playstation One games have aged terribly, and aren't very fun to play anymore, but here are a few that have aged well:

Metal Gear Solid
Final Fantasy IX
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

And a bunch of very expensive RPGs

I never owned this though I wish I had Silent Bomber was a pretty unique arcade'y kinda game that you basically go around blowing stuff up with bosses to battle along the way, definitely worth picking up if your lucky enough to come across it.

If you are into RPGS I suggest

Suikodeon 1 and 2

Other games to consider
Castlevania Symphony of the Night
Spryo The Dragon (If you have played the newer ones forget them and play this one)
Twisted Metal 1 and 2
Metal Gear Solid

If you are into fighting games the Tekkens are always good too.

I'm happy to see all the Metal Gear Solid fans.

So yeah, definitely pick up Metal Gear Solid, lol.

Just for you.

Xenogears

is that like xenoblade?

No. Not in the slightest. It was directed by the same guy (or maybe just written? I can't remember), but it was an early work and played nothing like Xenoblade. I'd actually recommend against it. Calling it rough around the edges would be putting it lightly. It has an overly convoluted, kitchensink style plot, to the point where it almost feels like a parody of something like Evangelion than a homage like it was intended. Gameplaywise it has some good ideas, and a lot of bad ones. While the combat, which is strickly turn-based, albeit with a twist in which you can choose attack strings, seems cool at first, but it's slow and unbalanced, and quickly becomes repetitive. There's platforming sections where you can get into a random battle mid-jump. Pretty much the entire second disc is rushed and poorly excecuted, making it's already convoluted story even harder to comprehend.

Not to say it is entirely unenjoyable, but its flaws bring it down rather heavily. If you were gonna get it for $6 on PSN, I'd actually recommend giving it a shot, but the disc version usually goes anywhere from $40 to $100+ - it simply isn't worth it, IMO. Not when there's Xenosaga on the PS2, which is a far better game and uses a lot of similar elements.

What N64 games aren't dated?

Mischief Makers, Yoshi's Story, Paper Mario, Star Fox 64, Star Wars Episode 1 Podracer, maybe some puzzle games because...puzzle games

Rare's games, the Zelda games and Kirby 64 are arguable

You got me with Mischief Makers, but that's literally the only one. Maybe Yoshi's Story? I was under the impression it was dated when it came out, but I never played it, so I can't say either way.

Paper Mario is very much dated compared to its successors, with much simpler gameplay.

Star Fox 64 has horribly dated graphics.

As does Star Wars Podracer, and IIRC, it's controls were difficult to grapple with.

You'd have to be specific, but even some of the Puzzle games haven't held up as well, like one of the Tetris games.

None of Rare's games have aged well at all, in terms of graphics, gameplay, and controls.

The Zelda games both have extremely dated graphics, OoT in particular having sub-par graphics for its time.

Kirby 64 is arguable, though. I agree there.

Yoshi's Story was pretty dated when it was released. Watch an episode of Sesame Street instead of playing Yoshi's Story. It will be more difficult and last longer.
