So, I've decided to go backwards and have recently acquired a PS2.
I'm planning on spending some of my graduation money on some games, I want some suggestions.

All I've got right now is Shadow of the Colossus, and Final Fantasy XII is on the list already.

Suikoden III, IV, or V. I really recommend IV and V.
La Pucelle: Tactics, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, Phantom Brave... I feel like I'm just listing all of the games from my Favorites List. >_<

Suikoden Tactics. SO GREAT.

and do not fail to get Persona 3 and 4, especially 4. Those two are absolute must have titles for that system.

Gladius is a good tactical rpg game that is available for ps2, gc, and xbox. i used to have the xbox version and now have the ps2 version, both are solid. Valkyrie Profile 2 is a great choice.

cocaine from Bolivia and fucking Fran on the starboard deck."

Grimgrimoire is fun, if a little short. Star Wars Battlefront 2, Soul Calibur 3, maybe Eternal Poison if you're really into turn based strategy games.ObsCure is a good horror title to play with a friend. Champions of Norrath, and/or Champions: Return to Arms. Dynasty Warriors, if you like those titles... Persona 3 and 4 bear repeating. You might consider Phantasy Star Universe. As well as any games that are part of a series you greatly enjoy, MoH maybe, Need for Speed, Gran Turismo, etc, based on your preferences.

Trying to get my hands on a copy of FFXII is turning out to be a challenge.
I picked up FFX and Kingdom Hearts today, however Kingdom Hearts won't play. Goddammit.

Anyone play FFVII: Dirge of Cerberus? I've been thinking about it, and I don't know if it's a good idea or not.
I plan on getting Gran Turismo 4, and I'm looking for something from the Tales series too. Pretty much which ever one I can find.

On PS2 the only worthwhile Tales title is Abyss. If you're going to mod it then you could get the Destiny remake, Destiny 2, or Rebirth, I guess, but of the localized titles (you know, two of them) Abyss is the only good one. Legendia blows, it's a pretty universal opinion xD

I could recommend a bunch of things, but what are you into? I can primarily help you with RPGs. Also, are you into PSOne games?

RPG's are pretty much the majority of my preferences.
FFX is great, surprisingly.

I really wanna get Tales of the Abyss, and I still can't get FFXII.

Abyss is freakin' AMAZING.

And yeah, Legendia isn't a popular title...

Kingdom Hearts II. No I'm not a fanfag, but its still a satisfying game, unlike kingdom hearts: Re: Fw: Chain of 3D/4815 Days By Sleep

If you have a ps3, don't bother getting the mgs titles, because they are being rereleased. get persona 4 (I don't recommend 3 unless you want to be depressed from now until the end of time)

KHII is the best in the series (though I disagree with Nitro, Birth by Sleep was pretty great as well).

In addition to pretty much everything that everyone else has suggested, here are some more good RPGs:

Dark Cloud 2 / Dark Chronicle (get this.)
Shadow Hearts: Covenant
Radiata Stories (you'll hear mixed opinions on this one, but I thought it was great)
Grandia III
Dragon Quest VIII
Star Ocean: Till the End of Time (this game is LONG, took me over 60 hours to complete the main quest alone IIRC, and there is a ton of bonus content... it'll keep you entertained for quite a while)


Anyone play FFVII: Dirge of Cerberus? I've been thinking about it, and I don't know if it's a good idea or not.

It was very average. The story was decent, but the gameplay was very mediocre. I wouldn't say it's not worth playing at all, but definitely shouldn't be high on your priority list.

Agree with Dave on Dirge of Cerberus, if you love Vincent and want a game to wank over him..like I did and enjoyed that aspect. It's an alright game, bit of easy mindless fun. Just try and get it cheap off amazon!

I still prefer Persona 3 over Persona 4, although it IS admittedly a much more serious and dark plot, in general. So, yeah.

Stay away from FPS final fantasy... trust me.
The ONLY reason to get it is because bitches love Vincent.
Catman is officially cool now. Get wit it.
