The following table contains known PS1 games that had 2 or more discs. This table is sortable, with the number of discs-per-game following the Title in Column 2. Following are two additional tables: Compilations of Final Fantasy; and 16 "issues" of PlayStation Underground Magazine.

These games typically share immersive storylines (many are RPG's) and plentiful FMV.

The table currently contains all three regions (NTSC-USA, NTSC-Japan, and PAL-Europe) but may not be complete (please contribute). Of the NTSC-USA only titles, there are 1x 5-disc game (Riven), 9x four-disc games, 8x three-disc games, and 42 two-disc games (not counting the re-release, magazines, or compilations).
