Must have PS1/PS2 games?

I just picked up a PS2 at a yard sale for $25. Now I need games to go with it as I only have 24 the game and GRAW since I picked those up for $1/each at HWV.

I'm not into RPGs and not into GTA, with the exception of the top down ones.(the first two, I believe)

I mainly play first and third person shooters.

All the Clancy games are a given for me, so no need to mention those.

Thanks for the help in advance!

Einhander if you can find it -- I love it and it's a third person shooter.

I really enjoyed Ico/Shadow of the Colossus, as well as the entire Legacy of Kain series (though I didn't like Legacy of Kain; I prefer to start with Soul Reaver).

Freedom Fighters: Best 3rd person shooter of the generation.
Time Splitters trilogy: Best 1st person shooters of the generation.

Yeah, twisted metal is a must have as I loved playing the PS1 version when I was younger and the neighbor kids had a PS1 and Twisted Metal. :D

PoP I'll get for Xbox since I'm more used to the controls and the graphics are better.

Is Mercenaries less glitchy on PS2 than it is on Xbox?

Be careful if you are playing on 360 with BC, because Warrior Within and two thrones aren't compatible with it. (I didn't realize this before buying them.

Not sure, I've only played about 2 hours of it and I don't recall any glitches. Note that I'm talking about the 1st one, not the second one.

Nope, I'm playing all Xbox v1 games on the original Xbox I have now. Since there's no online anymore I'm not bothering with playing them on the 360.

Also, I know you are referring to Mercenaries 1 since it's the only last-gen one. Mercs 2 IS glitchy as hell last I knew. :-P
