The games industry never stands still. New technology is forever pushing it towards a future where the PlayStation 4 will look about as powerful as a hoop n’ stick combo from the 40s.

Sony’s previous-gen wonder played host to a vast library of games, including these hidden gems which might even breathe new life into your dust-gathering system.
