  1. I know that the PlayStation 2. Plays pretty much all games for the PlayStation one except I believe seven individual titles,. and a couple titles don't work on the newer PlayStation twos but only on the older ones. I know one of the advertising pointing to the Playstation 2 was that you could go back and use your old games and accessories. For stuff like negcons, justifiers, gun cons you use those with PlayStation 1 games and certain compatible PS2 games when using a PlayStation 2 to play the disc. Same with multi taps PlayStation 2 multi-tap use the PS2 multi-tap will PS1 games on a PS2 use a PS1 multi-tap. Same with memory cards. even though PS2 memory cards could hold PS1 memory you have to transfer to PS one card to actually use it. the tricky part is that PlayStation 1 and 2 controllers I heard or both forwardly and backwardly compatible for most games. I heard there are quite a few games that work with a standard PS1 pad, and that the only games that required a DualShock 2 were games that had the analog button features. Anything with digital buttons but use but required the analog sticks could use a DualShock 1 ot dualshock 2. I guess the way the analog pads and buttons work when using digital is It's All or Nothing. Some games were perfectly fine with digital buttons and joystick other games it's a performance inhibitor and some are impossible. but I heard the reverse is true to that you could use DualShock 2 on any PlayStation 1 game, eithet on a real PlayStation 1, or Playstation 2 playing PlayStation 1 games. I remember the packages said PS1 / PS2 after the first year when they were consolidating because it was just too expensive to make both DualShock ones a DualShock twos, kind of like the exact reason why black and white TVs died in the 70s. I assume different games read buttons differently and joysticks differently. like some games will read the slightest touch of the analog button or stick and give you 100% pressure when converting to digital. Others just look at the grossest bit: is it pressed over halfway or no? Finally some games require full actuation to actuate a button. It depends on how the original game was coded. luckily any game that has trouble with analog sticks with DualShock ones set digital only mode. So basic questions if you have 8 DualShock 2... ... are there any games worth keeping DualShock ones and or original controllers for. That suffer on a PS2 playing a PS1 game or real PS1? ... Finally what is the most I'll need to keep? I need to know that so I'm popular local retro game parties.
