My birthday is Monday.
« on: May 21, 2005, 10:45:39 pm »
So, I'd like some PS2 game recommendations. I have a massive six:
.hack//INFECTION (I was really disappointed with this)
Xenosaga Episode I (I was disappointed with this as well)
Front Mission 4 (Ditto...)
Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne (My favourite console style RPG ever)
Armoured Core 3 (It's not bad. The controls bug me a little)
Suikoden III (It was fun until the end)

I like action games and RPGs. No shooters please, unless they're third person.  I don't dig FPS games on consoles.

Oh, and I'll have maybe a $100 budget, so if you could rank your recommendations in some sort of order...?

Well my personal fave RPG is Grandia II. Star Ocean III is pretty good, although I can't handle real-time battles. And then there's Disgaea and all those ones. Apart from that, I dunno. Sorry...

Metal Gear Solid 3 and DMC3 sound like good bets.

I can't really thing of many console games but for PS2 I could recommend SSX3 ontop of what has currently been mentioned. (MGS3/Star Ocean3/DMC3)

I suggest saving up some more money and buying an Xbox :)


However, if you want some Ps2 suggestions anyway:
Kingdom Hearts - Most people love this game. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Its a bargain bin game now too. No reason not to own this thing.

God of War - If you like a 3rd person combat game with a cool story (Think... Ninja Gaiden with more on story. I haven't actually played much of God of War, but I did play the Demo so much my PS2 no doubt wept. I just havent gotten around to picking it up yet)

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory - No idea how this'd play on the PS2, but it's a mean machine on the Xbox. Granted, you'll be missing out on Co-Op and Versus mode due to no Xbox Live, which really really added major value to the game (Especially that co-op mode man, so neat). Single player IS fun however.

Theres alot of entertaining bargain bin games too to keep in mind.
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4, Crazy Taxi, Ratchet and Clank. All semi-amusing and fun games. Nothing "epic" in any of those, but if you can get them for a couple bucks they'll most defenitely keep you entertained (especially Tony Hawk and Ratchet and Clank, something about those games were unreasonably time consuming). My fiancee loves Crazy Taxi for whatever reason, so I included that :P

While Kingdom Hearts is still most defenitely my number one suggestion, picking up the Metal Gear Solid series is also a cool idea. And if you want a crazy anime story and fast action gameplay that will keep you entertained a while for a cheap price, also consider Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders 2.

And if you wonder why I keep listing semi-older games that are no doubt bargain bin is... I really havent seen crap hit the PS2 that really jumped out at me excluding the two new ones I've already listed (God of War and Chaos Theory).

Alien Hominid... 20 bucks and the game rawks, hard as hell, but very old school.

I'd also reccomend Kingdom Hearts, and as it's a "Greatest hits" title, also 20 bucks.

I'd reccomend Soul Calibur as well, even if we got shafted on the extra character....

I already have one. It was a mistake, in my opinion.

Hm, I'd forgotten all about ZOE2. I've been wanting that for a while now.
