Lots of great RPGs for the PlayStation, it was kind of a golden age. In addition to the ones already mentioned, check out the whole FF series, Legend of Legaia, Threads of Fate, Legend of Dragoon, Xenogears... lots of classics.

My most played PSX game was Xcom Ufo Defense I sunk hundreds of hours into it, I can't really recommend it without the PSX mouse though it really needs it in my opinion.

Basically it was the original PC Xcom with better graphics it's in my opinion the best version that was made full stop.

Spyro (I'd skip straight to year of the dragon if you don't feel like playing them all)
Silent Hill
Legend of Dragoon

As a whole, the playstation hasn't aged too well. The rpg's and platformers are still solid, but fighting games, sports, and most 3d platformers show its age.
