In your opinion, is PS3 automatically the better system, with PS2 being 2nd and PS1 being 3rd? PS1 has an extensive library for sure, and I see some on other gaming forums who automatically write it off because of triangulated graphics. Despite that, I probably play PS1 over PS2 on a 2:1 ratio. I don't own PS3, but haven't seen anything in the stores that screams "gotta have" for that console.
Its not weird having more PS2 than PS3 games. Just depends on which system there were more games you felt compelled to buy. As I said, I haven't seen any current gen games in the stores that scream "must have", so no need to buy for me, plus I have so many classic systems and games I can never play them all anyway.
But to the Sony systems: Graphics do not automatically a good game make. There are some highly enjoyable games on PS1 that get overlooked due to graphics alone and that is unfair.

Interesting discussion. I never really upgraded from the PS1. I've got an extensive library of games and I'm happy with them. We have a Wii, but it has gotten little play time. I'm not really that gung-ho about playing games via the internet. I think a PS2 might be worthwhile as a sit on your butt non-internet video game system. Plus, with the economy being the way it is, it'll be a long time before I pay for a $50 game again.
The funny thing is that I never intended to collect for PS1. It just happened. I saw so many good looking PS1 games at Goodwill stores for $1-$3 each that I just couldn't pass them up. I now have about 600 PS1 titles.
PS2 is actually a good system to collect for at present because so many good games can be found for cheap. I just went to Goodwill today and got three PS2 games for $4 each. I am sure that will not continue indefinitely, so take advantage while you can.
I never say never, but probably won't ever own Wii/360/PS3 generation systems unless they show up at thrifts for dirt cheap in the future.
My favorite PSX sports games are the early NFL Gameday titles, before 989 took over. The play selection menu is better than Madden, and the games overall just have a quicker, more crisp feel to the on-screen action.
