Depending on what type of games you like, there are 100's...

I personally love SEU's and Platform games.

R-Types - R-Type 1&2 - arcade Perfect
R-Type Delta - Worth a look !
Salamander - J - Nemesis/Gradius 2 and a half
G-Darius - great Horizontal SEU
Timeshock! Pinball - Best Pinball game EVER !
Thunder Force V
Dragon Valor - RARE as fek - Great Adventure that last generations !! Play it, you'll understand !
Strider 1&2 - Great Classics
Raiden Project/Raiden DX - Raiden 1 & 2 - Awesome SEU's - Raiden 5 released now btw!
IK+ - CLASSIC !!!!!
BEDLAM - I don't know why, but I love this game... Only PS1 game I would buy second hand!
Starblade ALPHA - I think this was a port of the arcade version. However the Enhanced version of the game blows the arcade machine out the water !
Einhänder - A SEU Must have
EDIT
X2 - No Relief - Even with cheat of 99 lives - This is a bitch of a SEU! Great soundtrack too!
Crusader - No Remorse

Typo !

Just a few that I have ebooted from PSX for PSP.

:lol:
good point, the farting was pretty much the point to em. :P
heart of darkness (by eric chahi no less) is another similar to the breed, though it gets a bit too naked lunch in places. :?

Yes, there are hidden gems on pretty much every system there is (well, all but the Virtual Boy because everybody knows ALL the games on the VB :lol: )

for the PSX my hidden gem tips would be:

- Toukon Retsuden 3 (jap. wrestling game, my all time favorite PSX game)
- Side by Side Special / Side by Side Special 2000 (one of the best PSX racers there is)
- Motorhead (amazing frame rate, the smoothest 32-Bit racer there is)
- The Bombing Islands (very good puzzle game, the N64 port was called Charlie Blast's Territory)
- Rally de Europe (has the game Rally de Africa included, unlock it by beating Rally de Europe or use a cheat code)
- Loaded (a violent top down action shooter)
- Tetris X (best Tetris game for the PSX)
- Battle Qix (as well as Tetris, Qix is always fun and this is the best version on PSX)
- Tiny Toon Adventures: The Great Beanstalk

Lots of good ones on this thread!

My picks-

Konami Arcade Classics

For the driving enthusiast:
Twisted Metal 2 (not exactly hidden I know)
Rogue Trip
Critical Depth
Star Wars Demolition

Puzzle:
Irritating Stick

Fun Fact:
If not for Coleco having bundled Donkey Kong and then Nintendo noticing the success, there would be no Famicom/NES/SNES/Etc,Etc.....I.E.-videogames as we know them today.


Spoiler:
PSTV Henkaku Enso, 2TB ext hdd, dualshock 4
TSOP Xbox/CoinOPS/Ninja
Colecovision w/SD
Sega-any
TG-16
NES
PS3 CECHA01
PS4 w/1TB sshd
