Would be madness to even try and list everything that you should be getting for the PS2...there's just too much available. Good luck though and have fun - it's my favourite console by far as there's always something else to pick up no matter how many games you own for the system.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Well thank you very much witchfinder, I'd been trying to streamline my wishlist. :P

This is not exactly right. Mobile Light Force on the PS1 is a butchered port of one of the Gunbirds, but Mobile Light Force 2 on the PS2 is a butchered port of Castle of Shikigami, I believe.

Ain't it the truth! Drives me mad but I am playing through the games I get slowly! :D

Absolutely the best time for picking up PS2 stuff in the shops, the final clearout i reckon...in the last week I've picked up stuff including MGS Snake Eater steelbook and Gradius III and IV as part of Games 4 for a tenner deal.

Also picked up Dreamcast Rayman 2 for the princely sum of...1p in Gamestation...trade in price=10p, sale price=1p...is there any wonder that they are closing a load of branches ;)

Have we got many collectors on here? I am up to 145 now of various PAL, USA and JP games splits in thirds. Got most of the triple A titles and I actually play through them when I get them.

Still missing Okami though! :shock:

I'm selling all my PAL titles at the moment. Taking ages to list them on eBay. :lol:

Anyway, I decided I really don't care about most games - I'm gonna be replacing my PAL games (mostly) with NTSC-U/C versions of them unless they don't require basic japanese reading ability.

I'll just finish listing anything, and if you want anything I'll just remove it from auction. :P

Unless you don't like them. Which a lot of people don't.
