Just have a look at this thread here where everyone has listed off their top 5 PS2 games. You'll find most, if not all, the top quality PS2 games listed in there.

Get one at a time and finish them all. Thats my suggestion. Stocking up on games is never as good as it sounds.

I'd start with OKAMI. icon_biggrin.gif

Lets see here. If you own a PS2 you need Okami, its the law.

Shadow of the Colossus
ICO
Devil May Cry 1 and 3
Persona 3 and 4
Final Fantasy X
Pop Sands of Time

These may lower the fine of not owning Okami icon_razz.gif

There are a couple of new copies of Okami at my EB store, so let me know if you struggle finding it. I could pick it up and send it to you if you covered the costs.

In my opinion Persona 3 is the best choice as it has close to 40 hours of gameplay and it really sets itself apart from all the other Japanese RPGs so those hours will just fly by.

However Max Payne is a brilliant game that is worth playing more than once but the game itself is very short. So if your looking for bang for buck I would certainly reccomened Persona 3 especially the special edition Persona 3 FES.

Got myself Canis Cadem Edit for $14.

Does anyone know if they have a Shadow Of The Colossus in one of their local EB's?

I wouldn't mind paying for postage and whatever.
