Just picked up Kingdom Hearts 2, God of War, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater at gamestop's buy 2 get 1 free sale.

This is going to be my last run until I hit next gen, I hope to knock all of these out this semester, but we will see.

I was messing around w/ odin sphere (1 hell of an amazing game) & Wild arms 4. last month

for some reason I just can't get into it no more.. after playing w/ PS3 & 360 months on end... plus visual just looks plain nasty on a 42" wide screen LCD. I need to 20" flat tube TV w/ S-video input.

Started playing Okami last weekend. Great great game. I'm still playing Arcana Heart, Street Fighter Alpha 2, and Capcom vs SNK 2.

I've been playing Persona 4. Awesome game. Also just got Ar Tonelico II w/ bonus RQ soundtrack, although I haven't even gotten around to playing the first one yet. Ah...backlog.

on the ps2 i mainly play DDR, and other rhythm games like Taiko, beatmania.
but its still a great system after all these years for survival horror fans, RPGs, and action games like god of war

I neglected to mention that I played Twisted Metal: Black, and it is nowhere close to the fun to be had in Twisted Metal: Head On: Extra Twisted Edition. I should have just got SotC or We ♥ Katamari. :-( I can't beat the first level, on pussy difficulty, with a friend in co-op! Fuck!

Opened Viewtiful Joe on Friday. Damn, great style. I know it's a button-masher at heart but playing one level at a time my hands didn't hurt that much and it involved some strategy. God of War may get a second chance, I haven't played it since Christmas.

I finally have the time to really play METAL GEAR SOLID 2: Substance. Wow. I didn't think I'd played that much but I'm already
Spoiler
Maybe I need another one of my METAL GEAR SOLID weekends. I beat MGS over a normal weekend, with President's day off I might be able to pull off beating MGS2. Although playing it on normal instead of very easy (IIRC that's what I played MGS on) could alter my playtime.

My next purchase will probably be Okami, followed by SotC or We ♥ Katamari. But first I'm finishing MGS2, MGS3, and VJ.

I just got Sly Cooper 2 (never played any of them before), and I really like it. It still has some platform game staples that I hate (breaking stuff to collect coins is kinda annoying, and there is NO FUCKING WAY I'm collecting all 30 bottles in the level to unlock an ability), but it's a really fun game. The retarded hippo is kinda lame, but the other two characters are a bit more fun.

You're fine. The abilities suck anyways. Mostly useless.

Nice one. I was pretty miffed when I was told I couldn't open a safe until I collected all of the bottles. Maybe I'm just a lazy(ass) gamer (new idea for a website?), because really I can't even be bothered to find all of the bottles using a FAQ, but I see it as a lazy way for programmers to artificially extend the gameplay of a game while only having to take one or two days to do it.

I pretty much spent the last 12 hours playing METAL GEAR SOLID 2. Problem is I kept getting discovered+game overs. That combined with breaks means I'm only on hour 7, and whne I started I was on hour 4 I think. Damn I suck. A great game so far, might surpass METAL GEAR SOLID as my favorite game ever. I just

Yeah, I thought so. I hate how much that first part seemed like busywork.

I'm not sure if it's been mentioned (search isn't working for me right now for some reason), but Mercenaries is a freaking great game. Still has the best explosions I've seen in a game, better than anything I've seen on the newer consoles even. I somehow accidentally deleted a bunch of my saved games, so I'm gonna play this one over. Same with Resident Evil 4 (my saved games didn't get deleted, but I'm at a part that's fairly early in the game with barely any ammo and figured I should maybe just start over).

I just ordered Black as well, since I've been craving some gunplay.

I just picked up Rogue Galaxy at CC. It's one of those supposedly good PS2 games I missed because it was unfortunate enough to come out when I was already in full next-gen mode. Looking forward to popping it in.

It's alright. Great character/art design. Fun voiceacting with a semi-predictable story path. The combat is very hands on but gets repetitive after while. The dungeons can grow stale after a while. I stopped playing because I wasn't having fun anymore. I give it an 8.0 ish.

I retired my PS2 last week. Made my sad, but it's going to enjoy console heaven with the DC in my room. I'll miss Frequency and Amplitude the most, but MLB Power Pro's was great and of course the MGS games.

I highly reccomend Frequency though to anyone who likes music games and want to see what we accomplished at HMX when we first started.

Thanks for the info. Probably worth the five bucks I paid for it then, even if I never finish it and it just ends up a pretty game on the shelf.

Silhouette Mirage - fun old-school 2D platformer, they don't make imaginative games like this anymore.

Been chipping away at Dragonball Z Budokai 3, and even though the 'Dragon World' mode has a bare-bones presentation, it does bring back childhood memories of watching the TV show. Graphics top anything the first two games could do as well. Are the Tenkaichi games even worth playing after this?

Also, I've got some RPGs that I could only imagine having the time to play right now.
Star Ocean: Til the end of time
Rogue Galaxy
Shadow Hearts: Covenant
Radiata Stories

Recently picked up Devil May Cry cheap.. so I'm just getting into that now. ...Yes, I've committed a lot of PS2 gaming sins, aren't I a terrible person?

Yeah I beat Maximo Army of Zin last summer. Fun game, but I remember the first being hella hard (which caused me to only briefly play it.)
