I'm getting a PS2 for Christmas, and I need to know what to get.

So far I'm asking for...

Kingdom Hearts
Final Fantasy X
Devil May Cry 1 & 2
Onimusha 2 & 3
Viewtiful Joe

You see the trend in what kinds of games I like? Could you suggest what else is good out their in that same vein?

Also, where the hell can I buy Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution. The only place I can find it is at my gamestop in the mall, but it has that "Playstation Greatest Hits" crap at the top. Can you get a box without that junk on it? If so, do the disks look any different, and are the programs different in any way?

Don't bother getting all 3 either, it's new crime in a diffrent area. it depends on what you like.

If you like a big industrial city get 3
If you like the 80's get vice
If you like black people, wait and get san an.

I heard DMC 2 was a disappointment in that it didn't expand on the old one. But it's a sucky game too?

DMC 2 was described as emabrassingly easy.

You can get GTA3 and Vice City as a pair for Greatest Hits, and starting with 3 and working your way up to San Andreas will help you get into the swing of things. Each game is HUGE, and each game is FUN. It'd suck to just jump to San Andreas, because then the previous games just aren't as fun to play, and you'll miss out on two great experiences.

VF4: Evolution ONLY came out as a Greatest Hits game. It was released for $20 because Sega is awesome like that. Besides, half the games on your list you'll only find as Greatest Hits unless you buy them used. I'd also suggest less intense fighting games, like the upcoming Mortal Kombat: Deception or Tekken 4. Just because VF4 can get VERY aggrivating with its steep learning curve.

I'd also suggest Dark Cloud and Dark Cloud 2. Since you seem to like RPGs and action/button mashers, these games are a great mix, with some wonderful features mixed in.

Other things worth note: Jak & Daxter, Sly Cooper, Ratchet & Clank, Jak 2, Sly 2, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, and eventually Jak 3 and R&C 3. The first Jak & Daxter is pretty "by the books" in terms of gameplay, but it's fun, but you can still skip that. Sly and Ratchet are GREAT platformers (coming from someone who HATES them).

Skip anything with Final Fantasy in the title. They are all the same as previous installments.

HOWEVER, I HIGHLY reccomend ICO. That game just makes you feel in tune wiht the characters like no other game I have ever played. If you are into that kind of stuff, then definitely get them.

Another thing to make note of is the Legacy of Kain series. Skip over Blood Omen 2, is sucked. Just go with Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain (PS1) Soul Reaver (PS1) Soul Reaver 2 (PS2) and Legacy of Kain: Defiance (PS2). They all rock.

I have finished FF 5,6,7 and have watched people finish 8, and play through the more significant portion of x and x-2 and I can testify that things didn't get any better after 6, and 6 wasn't the best game every anyhow.

Get Rez, too.

Actually, I have spent a considerable amount of time with a few FF games, and I never saw any difference in them.

BASIC FF FORMULA REVEALED:

1. create reluctant angst-ridden teen lead character
2. create love interest
3. create generic cast of extras, but make one a different species
4. create large, overpowerful boss
5. send all characters through a generic action/love/loss story
6. lather, rinse, repeat.

I stand by my original statement.

Don't listen to the anti-FF crew. You either "get" the games, or you don't. They're enjoyable, plain and simple.

There's nothing TO "get". It's the same damn game with different faces and slightly different plot twists.

I get more playability out of a DVD menu, and I enjoy the movie I see on them more than the endless FF cutscenes, too.

i still think final fantasy takes no skill
you use a spell or attack and your guys do all the work

it's more like watching a movie over and over again

The same could be said about a lot of successful series. Legend of Zelda, for example. Even GTA.

The point is just because you don't like a series, doesn't mean it's BAD. And just because I want Boogie to laugh again - sad little man that he is - you either "get" the games or you don't. People will like the games, and others will not understand why.

Besides, now you're basically on the same side as Ernasty. So therefore, I automatically win this discussion. Ernasty's the Old Maid of the boards: You get stuck with it, you lose.

Yes, I say fuck GTA. I really think it's trite and rather boring.

I've been looking at Rez, it looks nice.

What about any of the Armored Core series, and the upcoming Nexus installment?
