I have recently obtained access to a ps2 (I can use my girlfriends) and as such am going to purchase a couple games for it. These will all be older titles and I will be trying to get them cheap, because I am borderline miserly about spending money on myself. Here is the List of Games, and I would appreciate any opinions on what I should buy. My first set of buys will be 1-2 games depending on how cheap I can get them.

Resident evil 4
Disgaea 2 (I know it's great definitely gonna buy it)
Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence (Beat it, love the series it's on the 2nd round of buys)
Final Fantasy X
Shadow of the Colossus
Devil May Cry 2/3
Tales of the Abyss
Soul Nomad and the world eaters

If you think I should get one of the others if you could tell me which one and why I would be most appreciative.

Get DMC3, whether or not you've played the first game (it's a prequel anyway, so nothing's lost if you haven't). Game is fast-paced and fun (well, during combat) and with the different fighting styles you get to play it pretty much your way (more so than any other game in the series, even DMC4).

Skip DMC2 though, not worth it (it's the crappy entry in the series).

I've heard good things about Soul Nomad from HST. As for RE4, I'll be playing that sometime soon, but don't have much to say about it yet, haha.

Anything from the Megaten series is generally win - Persona series is good stuff, and they fixed the battle system in P4 so that it's... unbalanced still but playable.

Otherwise, the Megaman Collection series's are good buys.

Shadow of the Colossus is about a day and a half of ripping your hair out - bosses take so long to kill.  If you can get it for $5, it'd be worth it.

I know this is heresy around here, but I'm not really all that much for the IIDX games. I've heard good things about persona but I kinda want to play the earlier games before I play 4, I might play 3 if I could find it cheap.

Persona 3 before 4 is a good idea (if you plan on playing 3), Persona 4 is a much more polished game and playing them in the reverse order, I stopped partway through 3 because it was just a huge pain. WHERE IS MY TELEPORT WHEN WALKING AROUND TOWN/SCHOOL

I'll be picking up the Persona 1 remake on PSP, too, but something tells me that won't go too great...

The grid system is cumbersome a little, but if you can convince demons to help you wit the hula, something must be good.

Oh yeah, I forgot Shadow of the Colossus.

Zone Of The Enders is really good game from kojima, it's like mix superfast mecha-action and little bit of RPG. Battling is the best ive seen for a while, really well done. One of the most beautiful PS2 games. Although the main character is really stupid 14-year old angst-kid, still the game has it's own great story and plot.

The second part is much better than the first one, it has more action and plot-twists and both games have amazing OST's. But theyre too short, ya can pass ZOE2 in 4 hours  D: But if you find them cheap, don't let your opportunity run away  :D

Ok, back from shopping; the final verdict was Persona 3 ($15) and RE 4 ($10) for me and she decided to buy DMC3, a Heroes of Might and Magic game, and Castlevania lament of innocence. I was pretty stoked to find Persona 3 brand new for 15 bucks.

I hate returning games, such a rip!  D:

Nice buys though, now that I'm pretty much out of a PC I may go and "buy" one or two of these just so I have something to do until I get into college, ugh!  ;)

At least that is how I read that post.  :D


Its only fun if you have the controller.

Anyways, only game I've played on the list is FF X, and its an OK game, but I generally prefer the international version.  (Major pain if you don't have a japanese PS2, though)

As for other cheap PS2 games... not really sure what else there is.  I'm not sure which genre you're into, but I do recall playing gauntlet with a bunch of other people one night.  It was pretty fun, especially since on the easiest difficulty you get infinite lives.  haha.  I forgot how much I got it for used from (that evil used game shop), but I somehow lucked out by getting a full box and manual.

FFXII was fine, but after you beat the game, it becomes a grindfest.  Eh.

If you can tolerate the first "game" (it's more like a movie, the first 8 hours you fight maybe 3-4 times), pick up Xenosaga.  The second one is a bit better in terms of cinematics, but it's ridiculously hard. There's no money in the game; you only have the items you find and that's it.  The third game was unbelievably epic, fixed every problem from the first two, made some battles as short as 5-8 seconds if you know what you're doing, and the graphics were actually much better than the previous ones by a long shot, not to mention the story.

If you'd rather not tolerate the first two, pick 3 up and just read the storyline summary section for 1 and 2, they're alright and do a decent job but many details are still missing, and you're just not as attached to the characters.

Fear's awake
Anger beats loud
Face reality
Never be charity
The enemy you're fighting covers whole society
(Damn right)
Mommy's not here gotta fight
(All night)

Right here shadow
10 o'clock direction
Seize the moment
They destroy the nation
Your rhyme is slow-motion
Give me motivation
Freaked out now
And dead on arrival

Round up around
Spit out all over
Rhyme like a rolling stone
Come in the crowd
Watch out the moon
They diss you loud
Guess what this sound
It bombs whole ground
So round up

Don't ease your pace
Cuz enemy is brutal
Moment of truth
There ain't no truce
You're the only one
One world
One love
But the battle goes on
Shadows of mass destruction

I don't care anymore / enough of fake smiles,
Buckwild I go / tried it on but it didn't fit me so,
Found a better pair of shoes to walk,
Even in defeat I hold my pride never gonna talk,
Better yet,
My mouth is tight like James Bond,
You thought you saw me but next second I'm gone,
I don't want no throne,
I'm a freelancer do for benjamins but I'm not a gangster,
Show me what you got,
If you got it on cuz I fight not only verbally,
Volatile man I am gotta game that I play

I thought you might like the way,
I destruct every where I lay my hands,
I'm sick to the burn,
From the top of the dome to the tip of my toe,
I call the shots the frontman calls the drop,
Going no where if you wanna take my spot,

Break down right off the bat / I pop my armory
Too smooth to see and I sting like bee,
like Muhamad Ali Champion of Champions will not defeat,
Came up to beat the enemy at large,
But tonight let us take a break back to kids in gocart.

Once again I'm back in the lab
Cleaning my knives ready for stab
I never committed a crime I had to
Out of necessity I done couple
I plead guilty to lord in the chapel
Forgiveness given cuz I don't look for trouble
Instead it finds me
And what I do is fight back
Never look back the past cuz it hurts to think back
I pray to God cuz I'm still paranoid today
Can't lean back / now its over
Survival of the fittest time for me to take over
I was lenient but games over
Mass destruction is now our slogan
Just won't do things in slow mo
Fast life fast money kinda like promo / break down

Still get it going on
I am the next ruler the python
Don't be scared of biting I'm not a tyson
Ride on / I'm the hurricane in ocean
About to land disturbing the peace
It's the War Zone
You best took it serious when you heard the tone.

I would highly recommend Shadow of the Colossus, you should be able to pick it up for $20. Yes it is a bit frustrating, but it's not impossible. The battles are epic.

Also, Kingdom Hearts 2. Great game, but I would suggest playing the first one so you're not totally lost in the story. It's starts slow so be prepared for reading. They also have Kingdom Hearts mangas, if you're looking for a fast way of getting the story, but $10 a book adds up. I would recommend reading the Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories manga, instead of playing the game. The card system is tedious and down right annoying. Long story short, KH and KH2 also $20 a piece.

Finally, in the future, if you're looking to buy a fun cheap game, look into the Ratchet and Clank series. They're simple, fun, and best of all cheap. The first one is okay, but once you get to the second, and third it gets really fun. The fourth Ratchet and Clank: Deadlocked, is amazing, the customizable weapons and the epic battles are fun. The hovership levels are a bit nerve racking, but once you get passed those, it's pretty basic, point and shoot.
