Post Anyone still buying PSX games?

The last PSX games I bought were Megaman X5 and Knockout Kings 2001 (because the PS2 version suck soooooo bad).

Since then, i have not touched my old PSX in a very very long time, nor do i care for the overheating gray machine.


Why buy PSX games when I can get much cheaper and better looking DC games? I'll save the big bucks for the PS2 fall lineup.

Not really no. If I can find Smackdown 2 for real cheap I might pick it up cuz I'm getting stoked for #3.

Oh and you should check out the videos for Smackdown 3 at IGN NW. They look alot better then the crappy stills and original E3 movies that I've seen so far.

I still buy them once in a while. I spend most of my game money on PS2 games, and save some for the NGC launch.

I picked up Parisite Eve for $15, and I got FF Chronicles (used) for $40 from a guy who didn't like it. There are others I'd like to get if I see them cheap. (though I pretty much have all the good ones).

Now is a good time to get games you missed on the PSX. They are cheap and most work just fine on the PS2.
I'm having a swell time with Metal Slug and Treasures of the Deep.
I will proably buy the next Syphon Filter.

GR, you can get MMX5 for $30 at regular price. And you are complaining about this? Man, get your butt to the store and buy this game!

BTW, I STILL don't understand why ther wrestlers in WWF Smackdown 3 for the PS2 are lacking emotions. There is no excuse for this, it is just laziness. If there is any sports game that deserves real life emotions, it is a wrestling game.

It looks so stupid for a character to get Rock Bottomed and still show no emotion.

Bullish....

I plan on picking up Arc The Lad Collection (probably sometime around jan 2009...) and recently bought Fear Effect 2. Other than that, I don't plan on buying any more PSX games.

I basically pick up older games that I missed out on the first time. I only bought MMX5 new, and the only other new games I may get is FFT and FFC.

magius: MMX5 is basically MM. I can't really think of anything else to say about it. The newest thing about it is that the characters can now duck. I thought the 'time' factor would have made a bigger impact on the game than it did (hopefully MMX6 can infuse some 'originality' to the series). Still a good game though, especially if you like Megaman.

I never had a PSX, so I'm catching up on many of the better games now that I can play them on PS2. I've bought over 20 PSX games in the last 5 months, and expect to buy more, cheaply, in the next year, as suckers sell them to the used game store.
