Making 3d games with psy-q

I was wondering if you could make a game using psyq that uses the full ps1's graphics potential. Like for example making a game that looks just a good a metal gear solid on the ps1. Is this possible with psyq or do you need a net yaroze system in order to do this

Games like that wrote their own 3D engine. Psy-Q can achieve the same outcome but it isn't optimised so you'll have a game which runs pretty horribly.

The Net Yaroze SDK is basically the same as Psy-Q but with a few limited things (mostly MDEC reduced functionality).

can you create a game as good as metal gear solid on your PC with bare OpenGL ? (no tool, no unity, no unreal engine, just C language and Open GL)
if you can, then, the next level is do it on the PS1 which is even more difficult.
personally, I cannot.

psyq gives you the best chance, because that is what game developers used.

Whether you can achieve it will come down to your own skill.
