i finally bought a playstation 2.

i have been a big fan and defender of nintendo, however, after months of no good gamecube titles and a nintendo ds purchase that i soooooooooo regret, i decided to sell out and by a PS2. i got a used one, but it was BRAND NEW all the parts still had the factory seals, for $119.99

so for those who have a PS2 what games would you recommend? and can someone explain to me why kingdom hearts graphics look like psone graphics.

the games i have are:
GTA vice city (finally i get to see what all this mess is about)
Kingdom hearts
Tekken Tag Tournament

the games i want:
Whiplash
Destroy all Humans

i dont like to buy systems when they are first released. i want to give them a year to prove themselves so there and anyway, i heard really bad things about the original ps2 (disc read errors and so on) so i wanted to wait for the ps2 tiny to prove itself.

anyway, i really like hack and slash, advanture, wild and crazy, and dance

i dont like to buy stuff when they are newly released either...usually after a couple of months the prices drop like crazy

DS was such a waste. There are no good games for it.

everyone complains about the graphics, but i love my ps2

if you have vice city, i would recommend buying GTA III and san andreas to complete the trilogy. play VC first, then III, and then san andreas. i love all three of those games, have lost about four days of my life, total, attaining 100% completion, but it was WORTH IT!

and if you feel like it, i would highly recommend ripping the music from vice city. i listen to VCPR regularly. it is the best station of all three games, and you will definently get a kick out of alex shrub.

i would also recommend final fantasy X (and X-2). have lost *at least* three days of my life beating both of those games. i've had X for four years, and i *still* haven't managed to attain all of the ultimate weapons. i am convinced that it is impossible to get the sun sigil. that chocobo race is bullshit.

the graphic sucks i dont question that (i feel like i am playing psone games), but the variety and mass is completely unbeatable!

but if i like VC i will defiantely try the other two

kingdom hearts doesn't look that bad, put in final fantasy 7 a ps one game, play that for 10 minutes then go back to kingdom hearts and tell me that it looks like crap
Devil may Cry 1 is good, the graphics are kinda old though, Im playing DMC 3 now and its really good. The Final Fantasy Series is amazing, X and X-2 are both great.

I simply adore my PS2. People moan about the graphics...but well I used to have an Amstrad in the 80s so this is cutting edge to me

I'm a sucker for the sports games so I like Virtua Tennis 2, Knockout Kings, Pro Evolution soccer....
I never ever grow tired of BustAMove Half Life is genius, Final Fantasy is excellent...
Must say, the EyeToy games are pretty awesome too and a lot of fun...As well as SingStar!! <if other people can stand the noise>

GTA is probably the best though!!

Top Spin comes out for PS2 in early October.

I picked up Socom 2 when I got Madden and I suck royally at it. Just like GTA. I like to play GTA to just go around killing people and hearing the fucked up commercials that Lazlow came up with.

I would dearly love to hear of a PSOne game that comes within 10 miles of matching the graphics of Kingdom Hearts.

KH is one of the best looking games on PS2. Even a PSone pumping steroids wouldn't come close to matching it.
