Best multiplayer PlayStation 1 Classic games which you can play 2 player or more together | PSOne | PSX

My little brother and I were grew up during golden years of PlayStation 1.

Like it or not, unlike any console games before PlayStation where most of the games can be played multiplayer together, most PlayStation 1 games back then are meant for single person. But since we (my lil bro and I) had only 1 PlayStation machine at home, we need to find and play 2 players games so that both of us can play together. And as the results, I got to know plenty of great and memorable multiplayer games that my little brother and I were used to play.

Another vehicle combat game, Vigilante 8 is pretty much the same like Twisted Metal.
