Best / favourite PS1 and PS2 games


#61

I usually played them on all available consoles, yeah.

(I used to review games and stuff around this time)


#62

just alright? thought they were overflowing with charm, and a joy to play, but…

what about ICO, then?

hmm… what about Abe’s Oddysee/Exoddus? better on the PC or something?


#63

Wasn’t Eddie gordo taken 3?


#64

It was amazing fun being able to get a car that maybe a relative had and see what speed you could get it to on the big oval test circuit thing.


#65

Can confirm Dynasty Warriors was really fun for just battering through hundreds of enemies with no real sense of risk. Mindless enjoyment.


#66

here’s games that were pretty sweet:
Gitaroo Man
Moho
Viewtiful Joe
Gregory Horror Show (I never actually played this though)

great era tbh


#67

Brian Lara Cricket 99


#68

I liked Ico a lot, but it was a little clunky for me to be one of my favourite games.


#69

hardest game ever


#70

That’s Liam Neeson


#71

Shadow Hearts trilogy - fantastic jrpgs
God of War 1 & 2
Prince of Persia trilogy (or at least sands of time)
Sly Racoon Trilogy (up there is Ratchet and Jak as best PS2 platformers)
ICO and Shadow of the Colossus
FF 7 and 9


#72

did you play the Jak sequels? I’m going on about them a bit, here, but they were ace.

only played Banjo and Kazooie recently, I see what you mean about that, kind of.


#73

So good though, no idea how someone hasn’t managed to nail a cricket game since


#74

Ah right - easy to get confused


#75

Gitaroo Man was so, so odd.


#76

I really liked the Jak sequels. 2 might suffer from ‘I’m so dark and edgy’ syndrome (happened to every franchise around this point didn’t it) but I loved it at the time


#77

hmm… I suppose the mechanics weren’t great. atmosphere and concept left an indelible mark on me, though, in a way that no other game (SotC aside) did.


#78

Inherited a PS2 recently and bought Dynasty Warriors 2 for 50p, after having the demo when I originally had a PS2. It’s one of the most mindless games I’ve played but fantastic


#79

really like dark cloud - bit of a zelda clone with city building elements.

tombi! was ace too.


#80

Think I played Jak 3 the most - it was incredible. Pretty sure I got stuck on a level and never finished it but it dictated my life for a good few months. Would love to play it again now.
