May the fourth be with you today. Despite originating from a pretty bad (by which I mean great) pun, there’s no denying that May 4 has become an important day for Star Wars fans. The fan holiday has become an excuse to celebrate all things about George Lucas’ legendary franchise, and has become recognized by the brand itself. It’s a positive celebration of a series that has transcended mediums to bring fans together.
An important part of Star Wars‘ ongoing success is due to Lucas’ insistence on making sure the series lived on through video game installments. Ever since 1983 there have been video game adaptations of the films, and these have ranged from exceptional (TIE Fighter) to truly awful (Yoda Stories). Regardless of quality, these adaptations have always been interesting, so we took a look at the series’ long history on PlayStation.
Check out the slideshow below to take a trip through memory lane and look at the over 30(!) Star Wars games that have been released on PlayStation consoles.
We hope you enjoyed our look at the history of Star Wars games on PlayStation. While we took a look at over 30 titles, it’s worth noting that the series has had plenty of cameo appearances in other PlayStation games. The inclusion of Star Wars was a big selling point for Disney Infinity 3.0, and Soulcalibur IV featured Yoda and Darth Vader as playable characters. Other notable appearances include Darth Maul in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 and Han Solo appearing in Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction.
Let us know in the comments below which Star Wars game has been your favorite, and if you regret purchasing any of the less than stellar adaptations over the past 20 years.!
