Hey everyone,

I'm going on a shopping spree later today and I am on the look for some good ps2 titles to last me untill November.
I've come to you people for some recommendations. Help me out here.
I have already played every Sly, Ratchet, Jak, and Kingdom Hearts game out there.
(And Psychonauts and Battlefront.)

So give me some suggestions please.

Bully as well as GTA:San Andreas are good if you're sandbox happy.

Persona 3 FES and 4, Second Sight and Marc Ecko's Getting Up.

Half Life, Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil, God of War, Timesplitters: Future Perfect, and Deus Ex: The Conspiracy.

Final Fantasy X
Katamari Damacy (or the sequel, We <3 Katamari)
Mega Man Anniversary Collection
Street Fighter Anniversary Collection
Viewtiful Joe
Persona 3 + 4

Star Ocean, Timesplitters and quite a few of the burnout games.

Ratchet and Clank: All of them.

Persona 3 and 4 (Get three on PSP if you can) Metal Arms: Glitch in the system,

Of course the classics Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, etc

Shadow of the Colossus, Ico, Okami, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Final Fantasy X, God of War, God of War II, Katamari Damacy, We Love Katamari, Metal Gear Solid 3.

Some of my favorite games, right there.

GTA: San Andreas.
Final Fantasy X and XII.
Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2 (thought I'd recommend them anyway).
Lego Star Wars: Complete Saga.
Star Wars Bounty Hunter.
Star Wars Episode 3 (surprisingly fun game, I thought).

There are loads more, but these are the only ones I can think of right now.

Skip it if you don't like hack n' slashes.

Another question: Is Knights of The Old Republic for PS2?

Persona 3 and 4. GET THEM!

EDIT: KOTOR is only for PC and Xbox

No you don't. They can be treated as stand alone games. There are plenty of little references for people who have played the games, which are quite nice.

TheAmokz:
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

And also;

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

You forgot Metal Gear Solid; Snake eater.

I say Soul Nomad and the world eaters.

Without Warning
Soul Calibur II
True Crime NYC
Twisted Metal: Black
Black (awesome shooter with dumb AI and lots of exploding barrels!)

Shadow of the Colossus, DMC, Black, GTA: San Andreas, Prince of Persia Sand of Time trilogy

Nope. The stories, characters and cities are completely unrelated. There are one or two very minor throwaway references to the old games in P3. Can't remember anything in P4, although you do briefly visit P3's setting in P4.

Rogue Galaxy for a great fantasy RPG. Better than the Ps2 final fantasies IMO

Remember, before anyone makes responses to fanboy like behavior, remember this, DON'T FEED THE TROLLS.
OT: I didn't play my ps2 much, but eh, when I was 8 my mom got me this absolutely weird game called Ribbit King, I was expecting it to be horrible, but it was actually pretty fun. :D
So uh yeah, I'd have to say Ribbit King because it's a pretty damn fresh idea. Golf+Frogs=Frolf. Kinda short though, and obviously made for people who are 8 years old, but hey! I can still enjoy my old preschool games when I get bored! Blue's Clues Treasure Hunt anyone? That game was freakin' awesome! :D

Oh, ok. i don't like having to hunt down every game in a franchise to get to the best one.
