Yeah, it is the year 2009, and at the end of March i finally picked up the famous ps2. I have loved sony consoles since PS1 which I had at one time owned about 50 games for, games that today are rare like, Suikoden1 and 2, FF7,8,9, anthologies, Vagrant Story, Mega Man legends 1 and 2, all tr games, bushido blade, legend of Dragoon and much much more..... So I am no stranger to sony consoles which is why I got a psp in 2007 and a ps3 in 2008.
Why did I take this long to get a ps2? Well for one last gen I was only into PC. I had a ps1 in the late 90's...(and was a pc/console gamer before that, but lacked a pc during that time) and after seeing Baldurs gate at a friends house, I needed to have it. It was advertised in magazines to come out on PS1....the full pc version, and the ps1 version was actually made in full. ( there is a website on it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hk31Z3jyuHI ) I waited and waited til I got my own pc from my cousin that I got for $100 ( I was only a year out of high shcool) the thing only had 2gb hard drive, and windows 98 and bg1 filled it. lol... and it ran slow as hell with the 200mhz p2 clone. lol.. that set me off on pc gaming and I sold all my ps1 stuff (dumb, stupid mistake!) Anyway, rpg after rpg came out for pc and i was loving it....I din't need a ps2, i got all these great rpgs on pc exclusives...and with hd resolution. Upgrade after upgrade....then in 2005 the dumb xbox360 came out, and all of the sudden rpg devs like black isle died, and other devs started making stupid dumb games on that platform and it killed the pc gaming world for exclusives as now since then most pc games besides a few here and there are console games.... Now after owning a psp and a ps3. I have a need to see all that I missed. So I bought a ps2. I couldn't be happier with my purchase (well not as happy as when i got my ps1 or ps3 as this is old tech.)
Anyway here is the list of ps2 games I got since last month. and they only cost the same as 3-4 current gen ps3 games.
Suikoden 1, 2, and 3
Final Fantasy 10, 10x2, and 12 collectors
MGS Essentails with mgs 1,2, and 3
Silent Hill 2 (best damn silent hill game ever! I am a big sh fan!)
Castlevania lament of innocence and legacy of darkness, (fun but not like syphony of the night, I hope a ps3 castlev games comes out!)
Grandia 2 and 3
Star ocean 3
Shadow of the collaousus
Baldurs gate Dark alliance 1 and 2
Champions of Norath 1 and 2
God of war 1 and 2
Dragon Quest 8
Now with all those great games and my psp/p3/pc/ds collection when will I ever finish these? I don't know but it's nice to own them. I know I miss the ps1 games I would love to replay them, Hoping that more ps1 games come to psn.... Suikoden was the last and I love that game works great on psp and ps3. Now what other ps2 games does anyone recommend?
