PS1 Underrated Gem- Board Game: Top Shop



This is a series of gameplay vids I’m doing highlighting overlooked games for the various consoles I own.

At first glance some of you are going to say WTF is this, but bear with me, this game is actually quite addictive. This was another late budget release for the US PS1 (sorry PALwatchers, but no PAL release on this one). It hit the PS1 in the states in December of 2001, and was a part of the generic named games localized by A1 games. Games with such riveting names like Shooter, Racing, Bowling, Boxing, and etc. Actually, most of those games had official names in Japan, but were changed when brought over as budget titles. For Example, this was just called Top Shop.

As the name implies, this is essentially a video game version of a board game. It plays like a more simplified version of Monopoly, and it’s pretty addictive. The game offers a single player story mode (who’s in-depth dialog is shown at the beginning of this vid), and most importantly, multiplayer for up to six players. You can play the multiplayer mode against A.I. opponents, or you can get five friends and go head to head. If your friends and you enjoy playing board games (some people get crazy competitive with such things), or if you’re looking for a good game to play with your kids, Top Shop works best with friends. By yourself it is still insanely addictive, but will eventually get old. It’s a game who’s enjoyment factor amps way up if you have a few extra people to play against.

NOTE: The developer of Top Shop (Kid) is also responsible for G.I. Joe on the NES which is one of my favorite NES games of all time.

  • This game, Bowling, Battle Hunter, and Speed punks deserve to be remastered.

  • This game was totally underrated. The graphics make it seem like a sheesy kids game, but its a pretty cool business/market simulator.
    IT's a very addictive game

  • I was playing this literally half an hour ago- I refer to it as 'Monopoly no Kawaii' personally, but that's just me and my ignorance-humor.

  • Ah the good ole days. I remember picking this up from a bargain bin along side with final fantasy tactics. The best $15 I spent at that time. My friend and I would play this game during the summer to see who was going to buy our Dinner (Pizza) lol.

  • Best $10 I ever spent on a PS1 game. XD <3 Top Shop. Yes, its peppered with Engrish, but all the same I feel it adds to the game's unique charm. Someone should make an online multiplayer version of this game.

  • I got a copy of this burnt for my PS1 YEARS ago and to this day it's still my favourite game but I can't play it :'(

    I'm in UK so would need a PAL version,… or a release in the PSN for the PS3,… i'm absolutely desperate I would pay like £20 to get this game on my PS3!!
    I wish they'd remake it,… it's the most underrated game in existence!!
