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

:ras: i dont like to buy systems when they are first released. i want to give them a year to prove themselves so there :ras: 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

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!

lol, yeah i have start vice city, other people are using the tv right now :fiery:
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 :p
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.

My ps2 annoys me as it wont play pirate dvd's. I only really use it as a dvd player. I find the games too hard so end up playing boring childrens games on it. I liked my ps1 games better.

X BOX 360 will have Topspin 2 !!!!! :eek: :worship: :drool: Damn I will have to splash out on that console just for that ONE game :( bet it will be really expensive.

Anyway for any PS 2 owner, Final Fantasy X is a MUST BUY :worship: That game kept me hooked for months and the graphics are just lush. Also, Virtua Tennis 2 is worth buying althought the Playstation version swops Jelena Dokic from the original DC version for Ai Sugiyama :o :rolleyes:

Quite a few. Virtua Tennis 2 is my fave. I tried posting a link to Amazon, but it wouldn't work. There are Smash Court Tennis Pro, Centre Court Hard Hitter, Andre Agassi Tennis, Perfect Ace......and more.....

yeah it looks the pstwo graphics are crap. sorry its true. i have been playing my gamecube for years (which i still like), and the GC's worst looking games smoke the pstwo's BEST looking ones. :sad:

but i knew that before hand, i was shocked at just bad the ps2 graphics are. but i didnt get the ps2 for looks, i got it for games (and the dvd player)

Go and play Metal Gear Solid 3. Or Silent Hill 3. Or Gran Turismo 4.

Then tell me the PS2 has bad graphics.

Metal Gear Solid 3 is the best looking game on any system. And that includes XBOX and Gamecube.

seen all of them and honestly super money ball one the gamecube looks better.

fan boys for any system are so on annoying, i dont understand why people cant except these three basic facts:
1- ps2 graphics are basicly n64 graphics
2- the xbox has like 1 good exclusive game
3- the gamecube is being fucked in the ass by nintendo

No, you haven't seen any of them, because if you had, you wouldn't be commenting on how poor they look.

This is Super Monkey Ball.

This is Gran Turismo 4. Anybody who claims Super Monkey Ball looks superior needs an urgent appointment with an eye specialist.

P.S I am not a fanboy. I hate the many problems the PS2 has. But I accept and take comfort in the fact the games look great when game developers put time and effort into what they are developing.

A PS2 virgin. God there are SO MANY games you need to try. If you like RPG titles then I recomend all the Final Fantasy games, any Grandia title available on PS2, Kingdom hearts 1, 2 should be coming out soon. For tennis the closest to real tennis is Smash Court Tennis 2. So many games for you to try out can't even list them all.:o

and i both know that is NOT gameplay, this is gameplay,

see the polygons, and poor rendering (not to mention the flat trees)
