When I was a kid I always wanted to have a PS2,but my family was too poor to buy videogames.

Now I finally bought a PS2 fat,even when I have a PS3 and PS4 Pro for some circumstances I can't afford to buy games for those right now,so I bought a PS2, the guy on ebay said that it was in good condition and it should arrive in a couple of days.

It includes 2 dualshock controllers and most importantly a FMCB memory card,so I can pirate and create my own DVD's.

What are the best games I can play on it? And homebrews/hacks? The PS2 looks beareable on a HDTV?

Please don't suggest emulators like PCSX2,my PC is too slow for that,keep it PS2 only.

MGS2, MGS3. I would advise FFX too but you can get that on PC now. I also quite liked Smuggler's Run, but it's a very early game.


I know your post is old and you're probably not alive anymore but that dakimakura is very cute, I enjoy furry-shoujo

Wow! What a coincidence, I've been playing PS2 games recently too. Recently got an $8 PS3 controller so I can jailbreak my PS3 too, for games that are too slow on my emulator (sly cooper 3 in particular is the only game I have had problems with on emulator.)

I recommend all of these except Klonoa (too easy) and Crimson Tears (haven't tried yet. haven't heard good things about it, mostly got it because the characters are sexy).


oh, the date is 10/31/17… I thought it was from like today (I just knew that today is late october didn't check date).


I think if you can get yourself a PS3 (don't get a PS3 Slim, they aren't backwards compatible) then you can homebrew it and play any game you like. I don't have one though so I don't know if it's any good.

Anyone else play any gacha/waifu collection games? I find them easy to click through while I have to work because they aren't very engaging

I play Succubi's Frontline but I keep getting my succubi killed on the front lines. I enjoy the nude pictures Japanese men draw of the succubi.

I find gacha systems to be pretty repugnant but there aren't many games that are so easy to play while doing something else so I'm decently selective to pick ones that are either pretty f2p friendly or are really enjoyable for me
succubi Frontline i think is a little too dark for me, i tried getting into it a while back and was confused by the mechanics (more than the typical gacha experience of initial)

i have nothing against gacha itself, but i have found most of those games to eventually become daily chores, and to have nearly non-existent gameplay that usually can be done automatically.

i have tried hard to like every gacha that i've tried because of the collectible waifus, but i still always end up quitting them.

2013 is the year gaming in the west died. The shitty business practices of lootcrates and paywalls became common place, low effort quirky indie games became popular. And the government/whatever boogieman you fear, finally after nearly 3 decades of constant shitting on and denouncing of video games realized that they can shill propaganda through this medium of entertainment. Every game since has been infected by this, vidya became fully mainstream. You can argue that it became mainstream much earlier but 2013 is when it began to come full circle. Whats even worse is they are pressuring the east to conform to western standards. We have seen the glory days of vidya for sure. Its only more downhill from here.

good. get these plebs out.

I think there hasn't been a single good game made after 2020. Period of 2010-2019 still had some nice titles. Minecraft, Terraria, Kerbal Space Program, Alien Isolation etc. But after 2020 I can't think of a single good game. And you know I am kind of glad. I have such a huge backlog of games I don't really need new stuff. I am happy I can focus more on already released games.


It had been moving there in force since the Call of Duty 4 map pack from 2008. 2013 isn't a bad guess, certainly no later though. I would say 2010-2012 was the death. Even FPS became awful then. You saw Bethesda dumbing itself down, Bioware making an ass of itself with the ME3 ending that they retconned in dlc. Obsidian got screwed out of money because of Metacritic and Bethesda, and then basically died. They had to flee to archaic isometric book-games to survive. DLC exploded into crates and microtransactions. Small studies got gobbled up. RTS as a genre died. The specter of "always online" appeared. Basically everything became shit all of a sudden.
Trump and then COVID killed culture. Everything is woke cunt shit now.
fuck /v/ and anyone from there.


I wouldn't really say that. Flight sim titles continue to get new releases. I have played the hitman games, they are good. Gunner HEAT PC!, ready or not, etc.

I think actually "sim-ish" games are undergoing a renaissance right now. I think maybe it's just a matter of taste. Perhaps post what you like and I can recommend something?


what's the point of meta charts or tier lists for single player games? just do whatever you like lmao


Because some people like to break games as much as possible and the best way to do that is to collaborate with like minded people. That sometimes involves making charts or tier lists either based on usage percentages or opinions. Just because you don't like to interact with games in a certain way doesn't make other play styles invalid.

Anyone here watch speedruns?
People make fun of them but I think many can be entertaning to watch.
I like the ones where you have to kill at least some enemies to progress instead of bypassing everything, no glitches, and no stupid stuff (like walking backwards or looking down to save time).
I watched one of Dino Crisis 2 recently and it was pretty fun.

The worst part of speedruns is they skip all cutscenes but I understand why it's done

Guys like this in the past were like Benjamin Franklin. They'd have their fingers in many scientific pots to pass the time.

The industrial age has caused them to waste their time on stupid shit like video games and model train sets.


>They'd have their fingers in many scientific pots to pass the time.
nothing's keeping from doing that if they feel like it, and i would guess some of them do
what makes you believe they would be some great polymaths in the mythical past you speak of? that's like saying these professional rts players would be military geniuses or something lol

"in the past x would have…" <== speculation like this can almost always be dismissed as absurd

Was checking out some Castlevania: SotN speedruns and the runners turn the music off because it saves a few seconds. The music is one of the best things about the game you idiots! Not to mention the constant back dashing to go faster, you just hear "sh sh sh sh sh" the whole time.
I still like SOME speedruns but some games are really ruined by it.


dont they have timers and scripts and all kinds of shit? they cant make something that just plays the background music as they go to each new zone?

I recently started playing Dark Souls 4 [Elden Ring] The problem is that I haven't played something like this in a while, is there a farming area where I can get enough points?


Just play with a magic build and pummel everything from afar. Rock sling used ridiculously strong, it is in Caelid (red area), in the ruins with lots of shroom headed wizards. I remember humiliated most of the bosses with it. Had trouble with several, but most was a cakewalk as a mage. Melee builds on the other hand were ass blasting, especially pure strength.


There's a place in Caelid where an enemy spawns right next to a bonfire
at the beginning of the game, you can just run past everything and get to it and just keep killing that guy and respawning him
there might be newer techniques now since the game has been out for awhile now though


cheat engine, or bestial sanctum if you don't want to save time but the region itself requires some levels.
honestly in my second playthrough I found darkmoon gs + mimic tear is the best sleeper op mode, blasphemous blade has a similar playstyle but requires blue pots


Faith sucks early game the easiest route is quality build(str/dex) with a bloodhound fang.


that's exactly what I did but I switched to intel build asa I finished ranni's quest

Do you think it will be good or a ruin like 3?

The setting will most likely be 1920s - 1930s, and the story will follow Sallieri's life. I really hope that will be the setting, mafia 3 was set too far in the future.


is this artwork official? it looks bad

>she was the kinda broad with hair the length of her hair
>she was the kinda broad who was bad news looking for trouble, and not the good kind
this city is rotten to the core


i don't think there is anything official yet, except that they are making a new game


Is 3 that bad? I remember liking 2, and everyone hated that game


I wish they would make a game set in this setting, but instead play as bootleggers in the boonies driving souped up stock cars to outrun the feds.

How do you feel about the HD-2D games Square is putting out? Personally I love them. Octopath was flawed, but 2 seems to be fixing my gripes with it. Triangle Strategy was kino. Live A Live was great as always, and I can't wait for DQ3 HD.

I like sprite games, I don't like effects like bloom on 2d though, still better than the 3d games with 2d perspective companies like capcom or nintendo produce.
I would like people to cut out the pixel art shit though, old games look they way they do because of technical limitations, not because artists thought it would look cool. We could have beautiful hand drawn games and devs don't give a fuck, it's probably more expensive than doing what they do I guess.


They would look better if they stopped putting in all those dumb effects and filters that add nothing to the 2D graphics that would look awesome without them. There's nothing HD on putting filters upon filters above the visuals. And the forced "3D" just makes it worse. If I wanted to play a 3D game I would, I like 2D game and forcing these 3D effects in a 2D game detracts even more from the experience.


Too much bloom, but the sprite work is exquisite. The soundtrack is excellent. However the biggest flaw is the story is typical Japanese abuse of every known trope and pandering to the audience.

I do agree the effects are a bit much, but at least they're pretty easy to disable. Though the option to disable them should be built into the settings.


Looks like Suikoden 1 and 2 are getting a similar treatment, which is more surprising considering it's Konami.

I never played JRPGs back in the day, so I decided to give these a try after playing a few modern ones and liking them quite a bit. They were very highly rated everywhere and were exactly what I was looking for. But, I didn't like either one. In fact, I thought they were incredibly mediocre, and I dropped both 6-8 hours in. Even trying to think from others' perspectives, I cannot understand what makes either one special at all, and that's rare for me. Can someone please try to explain what they liked about either? If I relate, I'll give a few other retro JRPGs a try, otherwise I'll just conclude the genre isn't for me.

Its not wrong though.


You will need to try a bit better than that to get easy (You)s.


I didn't even make it past a couple hours with final fantasy 7. It's just like pokemon but not turn based and also you don't get to collect pokemon. Why the fuck would that be fun? How is selecting attacks and shit from a menu fun?


I'm sorry but its not bait, You don't roleplay in jrpgs, you don't influence the story in jrpgs, the gameplay is thoughtless and ultimately just comes down to grinding out some stats, and honestly the genre just fails to be a good video game most of the time.

The newer games seem to take more and more from action games, and yet whats the end result? A game with barely passable gameplay that still has no roleplaying, no story influence, and grinding out stats still overides a lot of the gameplay.

I understand why people play CRPGS, and I can understand why people play action games, but JRPGS I will never get.


oh look he's trying the same tactic in this thread too


Were there any good PC games released in the last 2 years?

I had no devices for this time. Now I have a new PC and can't even think of what to play.

That's why everything is moving to online.


I dont think so, piracy isnt that popular. Online games are more easily monetised though, with cosmetics, expansions, subscriptions etc. It can take less work too, and they are much more popular.


>Piracy isn't that popular
Delusional. In the third world it basically the only mode of play besides f2p. In the first world it is also very popular on pc, but most also have steam for multiplayer games. But yes, online has many more benefits for the dev, just lika SaaS in general.
In the long run pluton will probably succeed in locking down pcs like phones/consoles.


Yeah but the third world pirates aren't the whales spending thousands on microtransactions anyway, it doesn't matter if they pirate.
