dude get a ps3! a ps3! its a good investment. why start with a console like ps2 that is dying. you will be wasting your money since eventually you will get a ps3 in the long run. so why not buy it now and start investing on the new games imo. unless you have some spare money to spend. ps3's coming games look good...bayoneta, god of war 3, ninja gaiden, final fantasy, dantes inferno, uncharted, demons soul maybe, batman, and marvel vs capcom 2.

Yea but they are maybe planning to make backward thing to ps3, but not yet.And there arent good games on ps3 what I look for in ps2. So maybe I buy ps2 and wait when ps3 is 200 £ . I dont really care about the graphics :

And if its dying there are still great games for ps2

#354 Posted by anbu-black-ops (2380 posts) -

lol i know. just remember that theres ALOT of games on the ps2, so you might end up spending more like me. so just try to keep an eye on your budget since you will be getting a ps3 in the future. you will be surprise at how much you will spend just for the ps2 games alone. be sure to grab those ps2 trilogy games, it saves you alot of money.

#356 Posted by manhunter92 (259 posts) -

I would say PS2 but thats just me. I pretty much agree on everything you've just said. They are cheaper but who the hell cares about if a game system is "dying" or not. I own a PS2 and the games are always at a reasonable price compared to the newer ones like PS3. If you want to waste an ass load of money on PS3 with not as big of a selection as PS2 then by all means go right ahead. Maybe its just me but I wouldn't waste all that moneywhen I could just wait a few months to get the system for A LOT less money.

Says the guy with the Halo-inspired avatar. (But it's true, get the PS2 first.)

What does that have to do with anything haha? I may like Sony but I like Microsoft as well...not like I don't have to be hooked to one or the other

Is there any good RPG games on the good old ps2? The only I could think of right now is persona 3 and 4 but I never play any one of those before since I don't have a ps 2...yet. Are Persona 3 and 4 any good?

its really good. gameplay, story and graphics are excellent and should not be missed for rpg fans. the story is really unique from the usual rpg, so is the gameplay. and also those games are standalone so you dont have to play the old ones. its a must buy!!! especially if your an anime fan. if you get persona 3, get the fes version. also the game was rpg of the year!!!

persona 3 fes contains the original persona 3 game (w/ additional new personas)plus the extra chapter/extra story/extra content.

great game indeed. if you like this game, make sure you get a ps3. i heard persona 5 is coming to ps3. read it siliconera afew weeks ago.

anbu-black-ops
I have not played any persona games yet and persona 5 is announced already. lol thanks for the info. Since I just gave up hope on xbox 360 I might as well look for a ps 3.

Persona 3 FES is english right? Because I only understand english.

#373 Posted by ShadowsRunner (742 posts) -

I played okami in the past at a friend's house and I thought it was very good in terms of almost everything. But the weird thing is the "voice" of the characters in the game. Why did they create such strange sounds for all characters whenever they are speaking.

they are all in english both persona 3 fes (get the one that has a free artbook and soundtrack cd) and persona 4.

I've decided to buy a new power cable and controller and start using my old PS2 again. I never bought any RPG's for it before... and was thinking about getting Final Fantasy X and XII, and Dragon Quest XIII. I've never played any games from either of those series before, but do you think I could still enjoy them? Are there any other major RPG's I should try out?

yeah, get those games you've mention. then get also persona 3 fes and persona 4. both where rpg of the year. kingdom heatrs series also is a must play. if you like srpg then get disgaea. its one of the best srpg out there. those are the must have for rpg games only. when you finish all those rpgs mention and still want to play more. try the shadow hearts series.

On Amazon Nocturne is available for a low price right now, if you're good at JRPGs it's a fun game, but it's pretty hard if you aren't very good at them.

Try Persona 3: Fes or Persona 4, most people like them.

#386 Posted by mlfowler (51 posts) -

I have five GC games to recommend to you all (these are my personal favorites, so sorry if you think I don't have much taste):

1. Mega Man Anniversary Collection. The replay value is astounding...I haven't gone more than two days without playing it.

2. Mega Man X Collection. Again, the replay value is great, but there aren't as many games to enjoy as MMAC.

3. Super Mario Sunshine. The game has a very Hawaiian feel to it, which makes it that much more fun.

4. The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. Basically a chibi, more light-hearted Twilight Princess. Which makes it very good in my opinion.

5. Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut. The minigames may be hard to unlock, but it's still pretty fun in my opinion.

What is the best space game? I like Mass Effect and Dead Space although I would like something EVEN MORE adventurous. Like EVE Online or Homeworld. What is a good game (preferably NON JRPG) that I should look into? I like to explore a lot, I am looking for a REAL game, not something like a puzzle or Rez HD. I'm also looking for it to be in 3D. Thanks.

How are puzzle GAMES not games? Am I not a real gamer because I'm I like puzzle games, JRPGs, Action Advernture games, and online First Person Shooters? Is Q a fake developer?

#389 Posted by MAT0R0 (53 posts) -

I don't know what game to get that can last long and has great replaybility (lasts forever). I was thinking of these 3 games (for Xbox1):

1.) The Warriors (People reviews say that it lasts for ever! But wouldn't it get repetitve after awhile?)

2.) Deus Ex 2 (I have Deus Ex 1, but should I really get it then? Is it the same as the first one?)

3.) Chronicles of Riddick (Looks just as good as Deus Ex, but the reviews said it was short, short games might not have long replaybility)

-

Yeah, you people are probably saying, why not buy all 3 of them? Well answer is, that I don't want too much xbox games. I just want the top best ones, that lasts for a whole long time.

So can anyone help me on what game to get(that has unlimited playability), outta the 3, based on your experience with these games?

I totally agree with that list. Sonic DX is so underrated and like no one has it. I bought that back in 2003 and it was one of my single favorite games last gen. The reviews for that game were FAR too harsh. I had a blast collecting all 180 emblems and unlocking stuff!

Play 2 first, but it's not very important.You kinda ruined it by playing 4 first, but it's still worth playing.

How was Morrowind not in the Xbox reccomendations?

That was probably the best game last gen. I put over 200 hours into it. And didn't even manage to complete half of the quests in the game.
