Okay, that is fine with you. To me, I would say that was a bad choice.

You should get Shadow of the Colossus, it's one of the best games on the system.

Get Okami. You must get Okami, otherwise getting a PS2 would be a complete waste.

Get Star Wars Battlefront, and/or Battlefront 2. They are GREAT games. I was addicted to them last year or so.

God of War 1 & 2 are my 2 favorite Ps2 games. I can't believe I didn't remember them in first post. They are awesome.

Don't forget Ratchet and Clank! If you want the best out of the series get either Going Commando or Up your Arsenal as those where the best I feel that the PS2 had to offer. Two other great series are Jak and Daxter and Sly Cooper. For both I recommend the second, but Jak III is basically as good as the second.

And for everything else there's the Nintendo Wii. : P

Anyway, if you're into RPGs, you could always try:

Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories
Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
Final Fantasy X
Final Fantasy XII
Kingdom Hearts
Rogue Galaxy
Shin Megami Tensi: Digital Devil Saga
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES
Star Ocean: Till the End of Time

Note: if you don't have a PSP and/or DS then you can always get the PS2 version of the first Disgaea (Hour of Darkness) before the second; otherwise buy the PSP or DS version. Also, if you're into card battle system and liked Kingdom Hearts then you can add Kingdom Hearts RE: Chain of Memories to your list as well for a later time.

For everything else, there's:

Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening Special Edition
God of War
Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence
Shadow of the Colossus
Soulcalibur III

Yes, get Devil May Cry, (don't get the second, it was a huge dissapointment), Devil May Cry 3, God of War, God of War 2, and a good RPG game is Shin Megami Tensei Digital Devil Saga.

Never played the game, but if Meg says it's one of the best games, get it. :P

Now, let me add some of my personal favorites:


Final Fantasy XII
God of War
God of War 2
Kingdom Hearts 2
Sly Cooper 3: Honor Among Thieves


These are some of the best games in my opinion.

I think the PS2 is the best console ever. If you like RPG/Shooting stuff, get Ratchet and Clank, any game will do, but Ratchet and Clank 3: Up your ARSEnal is quite good, Gladiator is alright.

Jak3 is pretty good if you want a game, that has different difficulty settings, as well as just FREE PLAY afterwards for screwing around, unlockables are awesome, eg. Unlimited stuff.

If you like Fighting games, eg. Like the old Street Fighter and stuff? Naruto Ultimate Ninja 2 & 3 are pretty good by my brother's standards...

I heard Shadow of the Colossus is quite good for RPG/Puzzle stuff, so I wanna try that out too.

Kingdom Hearts is apparently great for RPG'ers.

If you like the Furry Fandom, or just a good RPG, The Sly Cooper Series is the best thing ever.

A couple of games to avoid:

Avatar: The Last Airbender... Don't get me wrong, I love the series and the game would have been great too, but it's all backwards and forwards and then back again and... Yeah. It's a little one sided.

Rayman Revolution was made of fail. Well. I already had the old PC version, so yeah. Compared to that....



Some games, eg. Ratchet and Clank 3 (Gladiator? Not sure?) have online play as well, I don't know if it's good or bad, but I'm pretty sure it isn't as good at the Xbox :oops:

Yeah, so have fun with your Ps2 I think it's awesome.

things like star wars battle fronts are fun games for the ps2 but in all honesty a ps3 would have been the best option.

Too bad both versions of PS3 are not completely backwards-compatible, or else I would recommended getting PS3 as well.

It's hard finding ps1 games in store and even harder finding them cheap.I saw a PS1 game I wanted for $79.99-$97.99(new and used copy's).If you want to spend that much on those games I can happily recommend some of them.

Resident Evil 4, MGS2/3(theres a pack for 1/2/3 I think), DMC1&3(theres a pack for 1/2/3 also), FFX is nice, the GTA's are good. Sly Cooper 1 was good, didn't play the others. Jak and daxter was good also, didn't play the sequels though.

PS2 has a ton of nice games. I'd of suggested saving and getting a 360 personally, but PS2 is still a good choice.

Oh, and kingdom hearts 1&2 are always a good choice.

I wouldn't know too many games from those studios since most of the games available were 3rd party games.From SCE first party game I can think of is Ape Escape which is a great game and for 989 games I only played 3Xreme.You can look throught the list which shows the game's and studios.Click on the game that gets your attention and it should give you basic plot lines and the score the game recieved.
