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.

 No.36701

It looks pretty bad on HDTV. I suggest you buy component cables , it's still not great but better.

well there was a thing called backwards compatability back then so if you had a ps2 you could play ps1 games as well

its definetely the best console ever made with the largest library

It really depends on what your favorite genres are OP, PS2 has an enormously gigantic library. Not to mention in addition to all those super-popular games there's a lot of really good hidden gems that almost nobody has ever heard about.

>>36702
That's a tiny list, and I'd throw out a fair number of titles from it.

I don't like DBZ anymore but the games are still good. PS2 had the best games for dragon ball like BT3 and Super Z.

I used to have stacks of pirated ps2 games when I was a kid.

Some of them were pretty fun but I also had a PC back then so I actually didn't play on it all that much.

 No.37987

I identify with your posting OP. I was always a poorfag as well and first things I started buying when I joined the labour force was video games and toys I never had in my childhood. Meanwhile my cousins grew up in relative affluence with their own televisions and video game consoles in their bedrooms. And also cable tv.

Here are some of my favorite PS2 titels:
>GTA Vice City
>GTA San Andreas
>Yakuza 1
>Yakuza 2
>007 Goldeneye Rogue Agent
>Tomb Raider series
>Metal Gear Solid series
>Tenchu
>God of War series
>Devil May Cry Trilogy
>Shadow of the Colossus
>Final Fantasy X
>Okami
>Kingdom Hearts Duology
>Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2
>Naruto Accel 1
>Midnight Club 3 Remix
>Need For Speed Underground 2

Overall I think only the SNES had a better library than the PS2.

If you have a fat you should get a hard drive for it, instead of using disks.
I FCMB'd a slim and used network-loading instead of disks. Worked okay. Technically it was faster than the DVDs but it didn't feel like it.

>i don't think its worth the $
You said it all!
Of course there's a few recent games I wouldn't mind playing but not to the point of actually getting a PS4.
I don't feel any appeal towards the latest consoles principally because the idea behind these is to build a social environment.
I play games out of nostalgia and to this date the PS2 remain the most appealing console to me.

I played the 2DS and it's insane how little it has changed with the DS, i feel like it's the same graphics and ocarina 3d could have been done on the original DS. New consoles seems like big normie scam to me, i now realize the greed of the videogame industry. I guess i'll stick to pirating solo pc games (multiplayer is filled with lootbox shit) and emulating ps2.
What do you think?

I'd recommend pretty much all the SMT games from PS2 (even Persona), they're all awesome. Along with that, Maken Shao if you're into action games, it's also made by atlus and a reboot of the dreamcast version which had problems. Also,
>Baldur's Gate 1/2
>Champions of Norrath
>Battlefront 1/2 (the ones before EA butchered them)
>Midway Arcade Treasures
>all the Xenosagas

and since PS2 is backwards compatible with PS1, here's some PS1 games if you're interested:
>Xenogears
>Final Fantasy 7
>Crash Bandicoot
>Bushido Blade
>Persona 2 (both IS and EP)

Profit in itself isn't bad, when you put out a product you're taking a risk so it's normal to expect a reward for your troubles.
As long as you don't split hairs you're fine by my book.
I find limitating that gaming industry consider cinema as its equal when it used to be a source of inspiration among many others.
As mentionned here >>38037 >>38038, the fact that they made everything in order to "bring people together" is sickening.

Personally, I went with the DSLite simply because it wasn't region locked.
I can't blame you for avoiding multiplayer either, there's nothing left to salvage at this point.
You can't go wrong with emulating, this is a nice way to make up your mind before if you ever consider getting the real deal in the future.

i'd say the opposite, back then even outcasts were playing games with others every now and then. right now everyone is online, but essentially plays alone.

Also I see your point about games integrating twitch or whatever, but it's all easy to ignore and back then we had this shit too, like sonic 2 being made to play with a second person, and if you won't, you'll have an annoying AI with you. The whole fighting genre being super popular despite being terrible games to play solo. Pokemon having 2 versions of the same game to force you to socialize. I think now it's a lot easier to enjoy games without socializing, you even don't have to go to the store to buy one, it's sold by a system that can't judge you for playing "weeb shit".

Online was the best thing to happen to Pokemon. You could finally get pokemon from the other version without having to know groids who had it. The only problem is trying to evolve pokemon that only do so by trading.

Get Castlevania Symphony of the Night whatever you do OP.

It is the greatest Castlevania game to be made or at least one of the top three next to Super Castlevania IV and Castlevania Rondo of Blood.

Note that you'll need to buy a PS1 memory card to save your progress on it however.

As for some other games I'll recommend to you now?

GTA Vice City- my personal favorite of the entire GTA series as the game just had ridiculous amounts of personality to it and the best overall soundtrack of a GTA game ever.

Firepro Returns- if you're into pro wrestling games the series this one belongs to is one of the best next to the old AKI games for the N64. Yeah Firepro World is out now on Steam but you may not have a PC powerful enough to run it.

All the Street Fighter II, Fatal Fury and other fighting game compilation discs, seriously the PS2 is an embarassment of riches when it comes to this sort of thing.

You should get the Capcom classics discs too as they have some good shit on them as well in compilation form.

Resident Evil 4

MGS2 and MGS3 (Not sure if MGS3 was on the PS2 but I think it was so if it is definitely get it if MGS series is your cup of tea).

Gran Turismo 3- one of the best damn driving games of all time.

I've never played Ico or Shadow of the Collosus but I want to and people have said they are good so get them if they interest you as well.

Lord of the Rings The Two Towers was a pretty decent arcade hack n'slash on this console along with I believe the Gamecube and the Xbox also so get that and Return of the King (if it's available) if you're so inclined.

Jack and Daxter is probably good along with Rayman and I don't believe I've played either of those yet either but I want to so if you also find those games interesting and get to buying them and playing them before me its all good.

>it's popular so it's shit
It's not like anyone is holding you at a gunpoint and forcing you to play it you contrarian faggot. Doesn't change the fact that objectively it's THE definitive metroidvania and in some ways still the best one overall to this day, hopefully Bloodstained will finally dethrone it.

Im with >>38036. You're better off just watching gameplay on youtube. New games went to shit and i don't have time anymore to play old games. On the other side if you can get fun with simple games designed for kids such as ratchet and sly games then you would probably enjoy all other games available for consoles.

You can play 99% of PSP, NDS, Wii and probably 95% of PS2 games on even fairly low-end PCs. I play a fuckload of PS2 stuff including really obscure things and I've yet to find something that completely didn't work, although there are some games you really need a decent CPU for.

You can hook-up wiimotes very easily to Dolphin, and most games that don't have too complex motions can be just played by assigning specific motions to buttons on gamepad\keyboard. As for NDS I never had any issues myself but there's probably one or two games out there that might be tricky to pull off.

its the greatest castlevania if you think of it as a spinoff maybe. it doesn't play anything like the platformers, being way too open ended (with platforms being a small part at least as far as ive played which was rather fair and i like it). you will be lost occasionally, definitely an acquired taste sort of game, it took me until i heard the crystal teardrops ost to finally start really getting into the game

Here's one of my favorites, it's Shadow of Rome. Its an arena based action game where you play different Roman games, all of them include murdering others for your and the plebs entertainment. The other half of the game is a clunky and kinda difficult stealth game,feel free to look for walkthroughs, the action in the game is incredible and people often abandon it because of the stealth.

>keep it PS2 only
I'm sorry but i want to share my conclusions on psVR with my fellow wizards.

Tldr- DONT BUY IT.
Some games are immersive as hell and I'm gonna sink a lot of time into it despite all the negatives below.
-resolution is too low. I can see single pixels.
-hardware is too weak to handle high quality textures and rendering. Most games look like what I see without my glasses on. Reading text is (in most cases) a low resolution strain on eyes. Sometimes it's not readable at all.
-tracking is not bad bud not what is the best. There is no boundary check to make sure I won't hit a wall. What I expect from vr is being able to walk around my room freely and without a fear of irl obstacles. this leads to a little feature that saves me from readjusting helmet after talking it off to look around irl
- there is no camera view that allows to walk around and see irl world.

So basically 3 big deal breakers for perfect vr experience. Space for movement is more elaborate topic because not everyone have an empty, 10 square meter room to walk around. Some people are fine with couch vr. But Being able to walk around garage in virtual rickality and reaching far away objects is great. Other games benefit from it too. That's why it's really important part of vr imo. (And don't forget porn games are exclusive for PC)
I'm using it for 2 days so far and on a second day I used it for an hour or two. I don't get the whole "vr legs" thing. There was one game "loading human" that gave me serious motion sickness; turning in farpoint and skyrim isn't easy for my brain either but there are other options for movement. I'm sticking to smooth turning because despite it's Caveats it doesn't break immersion unlike sharp turning/teleporting.
Oh and super hotVR is my favourite so far. It reminds me of hotline Miami but in 3d and VR with my whole body as part of the game. I have to move around to dodge bullets and get a better aim. Graphics don't need much processing power so it looks decently.

 No.47346

>>46268

Loved that game. Rented it as a kid from a chain similar to Blockbuster and had a blast finishing it. Personally, even as a kid, I thought the stealth sections were just as cool as those that focused on the combat. Not sure how I'd feel about it now exactly, but, either way, I have fond memories of it. Perhaps I'll even emulate it at some point, since it'd be interesting to revisit it after all this time.

As an aside, it's interesting to note that 'Shadow of Rome' was the prelude to the 'Dead Rising' series. The use of wrestling moves specifically, like in that gif, was something you can see that was imported over into DR. Would've liked to have seen a SoR 2 somehow instead of DR, but that's just me.
