*The Twisted Metal Franchise (1995-2009)
The games are car combat games, about the Twisted Metal Tournament.
The first game is the one that started the franchise, but the second game is where the franchise started to get more violent. The third game continues the story from the second game and added new vehicles. The fourth game however changed the story from a tournament to a wandering circus battlefield. Small Brawl is a Twisted Metal game made for children while TM Black is a darker take on the series and adds online play as well (and Sweet Tooth as a Transformer). Head-On is the PSP iteration and features some of the series levels - and the PS2 version added more battlefields as well (including the Transylvania level).
*Rogue Trip Vacation 2012 (PS1)
Another car combat game by the former Twisted Metal developers. Despite the similarities from Twisted Metal, it is more original, and the game even predicted the supposed 2012 apocalypse.
*Assault Retribution (PS1)
A Contra clone released in 1999 by Midway.
Unlike the Contra games released on PS1 before it, it is more of a Contra game than those games.
and has more power ups and weapons too - and even an abundant supply of health and 1ups in some stages.
*Omega Boost (PS1)
A shooter made by the Gran Turismo people, the game lets you play as the titular Omega Boost robot and time travel back to 1946 to stop ENIAC (really?). Its a good shooter with dodging, lasers and a good soundtrack - in fact, in a similar way to Gran Turismo, every regional release of the game has specific songs on the intro, title screen, the final boss, and the ending movie. I remember this game very well.
