Red face welp, i im Gonna get a PS2, So...Recommend games...

Ok.

I had an Xbox and my dreamcast. (and PC games every now and then)

but i havent played my Dreamcast at all, and the way i look at it, i wont be playing it at all in the future (maybe once or twice)

so im gonna Sell it on Ebay and cop a PS2.

reason?

Devil may cry and Devil may cry 2 mostly...and FFX, and other games that look very interesting that look to be only on PS2.

Xbox and Ps2 is a sweet combo.

So, Other than the obvious killer aps like MGS2, FFX, DMC, GTA3....

What are some games i should look into...

i know about ICO and Baldur's gate.

How is Okage? the game looks interesting but id like some insight from someone who has played the game......

Also, how is State of Emergency?

and No, i do not like GT3 and Twisted metal Black.

peace

MGS2, despite the gay story, is still an amazing game.

I also suggest SSX Tricky.

I plaed Okage and after about 30 minutes it gets BORING!

Same old stuff over and over and over. Retracing your self over and over. I say avoid it.

Stat Of Emergency is CRAP! It's fun for 5 minutes and then your like WTF...is this it?

I agree on SX Trickey others:

Drakan
Kings Field (if you like "different" RPG's)
Mr. Mosquito (if you like original game play)
Splashdown (best water racer IMO but it is coming to XB)

All the "normal" good games too. I just listed some ones you could miss.

I'll break it down by price. There are some games that I wouldn't pay $50 for, but are worth the asking price. By the way, wait until after E3 before you buy ANYTHING. If Sony doesn't drop the PS2 price, than they must be bored from lack of competition.

$50.00
------

VF4
FFX
DMC
MGS2
GTA3
Ace Combat 4: Shattered Skies
Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance
Capcom Vs. SNK 2
Dynasty Warrior 3
Kessen II
Fatal Frame
Guilty Gear X
Jak And Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
James Bond: Agent Under Fire
Maximo: Ghosts To Glory
Mister Mosquito
NBA2K2
Rez
Resident Evil: Code Veronica
Sled Storm
Smuggler's Run 2: Hostile Territory
Splashdown
Spyhunter (if you're a nostalgia freak)
SSX Tricky (best version of all three consoles)
Star Wars Jedi Starfighter
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (might want to try Xbox version with new controller that comes out soon)
WWF Smackdown! Just Bring It
Hot Shots Golf 3
Army Men: RTS (appearantly the first Army Men Game that doesn't suck)
Gradia II (unless you played it on DC)
Drakan (according to some people)
Time Crisis 2
Vampire Night

No here's the fun part (prices may vary depending upon location; please contact your local retailer; prices may change without notice; Mooreberg™ and ConsoleCity™ are not responsible and cannot be held accountable for misinterpretations, typographical errors, inability to remember, offensive language, or rampant Xbox fanyboy responses; please consult manufacturer and/or retailer for warranty information; void where prohibited):

$40.00
------

Soul Reaver 2 (Best Buy)
Splashdown (EB)
VF4 (Best Buy till Saturday)

$30.00
------

Kinetica (EB)
Silent Hill 2 (everywhere)
Half-Life (Best Buy... better than PC version w/out HD pack but no CS)
Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2 (Target)
Ico (Target)
Extreme G3 Racing
Onimusha


$25.00
------

Rayman 2 Revolution (various places)

$20.00
------

(Basically the same prices everywhere)

ATV: Off-Road Fury
Dark Cloud
Zone Of Enders
Red Faction (not as good as Halo, but well worth the price of Admission)
Midnight Club Street Racing
Smuggler's Run
Star Wars Star Fighter
Victorious Boxers
Tokyo XTreme Racer Zero

I find it highly disturbing that you don't want GT3 and TMB. HIGHLY disturbing.

$12.99
------

MDK2 Armageddon (EB)
Le Mans 24 Hours (EB)

$10.00
------

Madden 2001 (2002 is much better, but 2003 will be out in 3.5 months so don't pay $50 for it). (EB)
TimeSplitters (KayBee)

All prices are MSRP on NEW (as in unused) titles. Used titles is a whole other ball game, and greatly depends on area retailers.

I probably missed a few (read: at least a dozen), and I didn't mention niche titles or stuff that would vary too much on personal taste (Gitaroo-Man, Frequencey, Unison, Mad Maestro, etc... mentioned Rez because that actually has a very good rail-based shooting component).

Too many games coming out in the next few months to even bother listing, and we haven't even heard about E3 annoucements yet.

It's also hard to determine when a game's price could drop with the new Greatest Hits line. Great stuff that came out in October like GTA3, THPS3, and Splashdown will be eligible in July, but with GTA3 still sitting at the top of the sales chart, I can't imagine the price dropping any time soon.

For the love of all that is sacred, DO NOT buy State Of Emergency.

Since you have an Xbox, you may need to play both versions to determine which is better. Off the top of my head, I've heard PS2 has better versions of SSX Tricky and THPS3, but Xbox has a better Spiderman, and Blood Omen (which sucks anyway). Not gonna bother bringing up the controller issue since the new Xbox Controller S comes out in like 5 days. Price and quality of game/conversion should be the mitigating factors.

Check out Blockbuster. I've been shocked at some of the great deals they had (MGS2 $20 used for all who don't have it already).

For the love of all that is sacred, get GTA3 by any means necessary. Play it. Live it. Love it.

VF4 is the best game released so far this year.

That's all I can think of. Time for a cigarette.

Rez
SSX Tricky
GTA3 (I know you mentioned this, but it cannot be stressed enough how much you need this game. This is why you buy a PS2)
Ico
Rez
MGS2
DMC
And I really like Rez

Good cheap finds are Onimusha, Silent Hill 2, ATV:ORF, Dark Cloud, TM:B, Kessen, Ring of Red, and GT3 (even if you're not into GT play, it's worth it for twenny bux).

GTA3 This game is the reason I bought a PS2! It's also one of the best games I've played for a long, long time.

I only played the demo, but Drakkan is great (out today, so I'm picking it up - woohoo!)

THPS3 is great fun if you want a game to "kick back" to.

Cheers,

Kev

If I may make a suggestion....

rent DMC. You may or may not like it. Personally I found it boring beyond belief (then again, how entertaining could a game that only requires one button essentially be?). It's mindless, reptitive, and the story isn't even that great.

Get Ico.

Well, I've beaten the game, and I gotta say don't pay over 20$ for it (which you can find it for at some stores, now).

It starts out good, plot is good, and the style of the game is awesome... BUT, the battle engine is very bare-bones, the game revolves around the same thing (literally) over and over again. It's good if you're a big RPG fanatic, but otherwise not worth your time.


And, the only game I can think of that wasn't listed, would be Shadow Hearts. It's from a bunch of ex-Square employees, so it has the usual Square feel - just less cinemas, no ATB, and gory.

Highly recommended if you like RPGs outside the FF franchise.

-NHL 2002 (avoid NHL Hitz like the plague)
-Dynasty Warriors 3
-WRC: World Rally Championship (if you're a rally fan or you liked V-Rally on the DC)
-Virtua Fighter 4 (like I had to tell you that)
-GTA3 (duh)


State of Emergency is a fun ride, but it gets repetitive pretty quickly (the story mode is incredibly boring). If you have the money to spare and you've already gotten all of the better games, and you're just looking for something mindless to blow off some steam with, then it's a good game. But it's no system seller by any stretch of the imagination.

<edit>TTT best fighting game on a console? That's the funniest thing I've ever heard. Even the people I know who like the Tekken series thought that game sucked. My god, that thing was so haphazardly thrown together it could barely even be considered a game. It's just a patchwork of mismatched characters, poor production design, and a fighting system that was once (arguably) good but was destroyed when they tacked on a half-assed tagging system. Tekken Tag was just plain bad. And that's not a knock on the Tekken series either. The others were decent games, but TTT was just crap.

thanks for the input.

damn, okage looks so cool, oh well.

I will be checking out those games...
already had silent hill2, and got thps3 and had ssx tricky...

never liked tekken fag.
and the reason i dont like GT3 is cause i have rallisport and PGR to cover my racing needs.

I have played enough of GT3 at a friends house and it bores me, same with Twisted metal black.

I just could not get into those 2 games.

and BBM, u didnt like DMC? it is one of the main reasons im getting a PS2.
The game is fun as hell.

anyways, thanks, il check into the games.

peace

LOL! Good one....

Definitely but Drakan, it's a must.
VF4 is a must have fighting game.
GTA3, no contest.
Devil May Cry is hottt.
Baldur's Gate is a quality piece of software.
Ring Of Red is a great RTS game.
MGS2 was so-so IMO.
Maximo is old school heaven.

Tekken Tag isn't even in the same stratosphere as Soul Calibur and VF4.

It's Tekken 3 will better graphics and a so-so tag feature.

It's kinda like Namco's version of fighter's Megamix with only one franchise, with better graphics, but no innovation outside of the buffering.

I STILL wish I got this instead of DOA2: Hardcore when I got my PS2 since I would have gotten 10x as much play out of it, but getting it now wouldn't be a good idea. Most reatailers are STILL charging $50 for a new copy. That's ridiculous because it was a launch title, VF4 blows it out of the water, and Tekken 4 (which looks awesome) is coming out in August or September.

My reccomendation would be get VF4 NOW, get Tekken 4 when it comes out, and wait to see which version of Soul Calibur 2 you prefer, whenever the hell that comes out (I keep hearing conflicting reports).

The only thing about Tekken Tag that struck me as "terrific" was the soundtrack. Some of those tunes (especially the one in that cave-type temple thingy) kicked ass!

Since when is the buffering in TTT innovative? Virtua Fighter has been buffering since VF2.

I meant as in the Tekken series itself. FMM added stuff that wasn't in either franchise (VF, FV).

And what was the fucking story with "Tekken Bowl"?

At least with the volleyball game in T3 you could work on your low,mid,high kicks.

TTT is a good game, but the best ever on a console in the U.S.? No.

LOL! Good one....


What's so funny?

I'm guessing I won't get a reply...

Tekken Tag isn't even in the same stratosphere as Soul Calibur and VF4.It's Tekken 3 will better graphics and a so-so tag feature.


It adds almost double the amount of characters from T3, tons of new moves for every character, lots of tweaks to characters and the universal parry. What's wrong with the tagging?

no innovation outside of the buffering.


What's innovative about buffering in Tekken?

And where's the innovation in VF4?

Yes.

Soul Calibur's not innovative at all.
But it's still one of the best goddamned fighters EVAH!

Soul Calibur's 8 way run is pretty innovative and is still the best example of how to do 3D movement in a fighting game. VF, Tekken and DOA all use something like it in their newest titles.

Let's all stop the bickering, take a moment, pause, take a deep breath...
