    YES! FFXII, ha, that game has so much love....and so much hate. I personally loved it but some people I know hated it's guts! XD The graphics were sweet at the time though. Did well on Famitsu, 10/10!
    Famistu scores out of 40?

    Unfortunately I never got round to completing the game
    However, a few months ago I remembered 'Whiplash' again, and watched all the cut-scenes on Youtube; brought back memories :daydreaming:
    Neither did I, it got really hard! Confusing rather.

    I might as well just buy games tbh. I could probably buy like 15 games for the same amount it'd cost to get it chipped.
    No seriously, you can't. Walked into game yesterday I think and GTA San Andreas is still £5. Seriously, £5. Chipping costs about about £10. Doesn't harm your console in anyway and you can get all the releases online. All the games listen on this thread maybe 10% can be found, if in the good condition that the CD works. When I had a ps2, I had 4-5 copies of GTA 3, just because if they scratched had to buy another one. Not to mention, buy a CD RW (20p-50p), Burn Play, Erase and download another one.

    I bought San Andreas for just over two pounds yesterday. :pierre:

    Final Fantasy 10,10-2 and 12. They are amazing!! also Final Fantasy 7, 8 & 9 are on the PS1 but definately worth buying

    Like other people have said, Rachet and Clank, Jak and Daxter are legendary also and the spyro games (although only the PS1 ones are the only ones worth buying, if you get any others you'll just be disapointed )

    The first game I had on my PS2 and also one of my favourites.
    It's cheesy as hell but trust me, so, so much fun! The soundtrack's quality too (especially if you like The Offspring)





    Genuinely feeling nostalgic right now!

    Persona 4 is a must if you're an RPG fan. It was by far my favourite RPG of the PS2 and beyond era (as it arrived very late in the life of the PS2), up until Tales of Graces f.

    I'd also put in a shout for Legaia 2 which was a proper gem of a game. I saw someone mention Dark Chronicle before, and how few people seem to know about it - a lot do, and a lot really enjoyed both it and Dark Cloud. Legaia 2 though seems to have become lost in the mists of time, not helped by the fact it was buried at release by it's bigger budget/reputation peers. A little like Legend of Dragoon on PS1, you could say.

    If I didn't have so many games on my plate at the moment I would dearly love to dig it and see how it's aged.

    Luckily it can still be picked up pretty cheap, unlike the first game on PS1, Legend of Legaia.

    Oh, Steambot Chronicles aka. BUMPY TROT is also worth a look. It's a very untraditional console RPG, so if you're looking for something a bit different, try it.

    Speaking of which, there's also Ephemeral Fantasia, another RPG, which is kind of like Groundhog Day, in that you repeat the same period of time over and over again, fighting the same end boss over and over again, but each time you restart you'll have a better chance of beating him. Bizarre stuff - Majora's Mask did the same thing, not sure which came first though. Also very important and way ahead of it's time for the fact that it used a Guitar Controller to play songs in-game. This was about 5 years before the first Guitar Hero game, I believe.

    Famistu scores out of 40?
    I beg your pardon- you're right. It was 10/10 on PS mag, and 40/40 on Famitsu! I'm surprised they gave it a perfect score- as much as I love it, but yeah

    There was! Even today that remains one of my favourite ever games! I hate it so much that it doesn't work on my PS3, and I haven't seen it on the PSN Store either.
    It's so annoying that It actually works on my PS3, but it's being emulated slightly too quickly (everything runs at (150%) and so is virtually unplayable

    There are so many, you have just bought in my eyes the best console that has existed in terms of games. There is just a huge selection, these are a few that I can remember that were my favourites!
