I know I'm not the only one and I was just curious what games you guys still play. Still alot of great games I haven't gotten to yet and you could score them cheaper than ever now.


Some games I still pop in:


R-type Final

Winning eleven Evolution (I miss those all night tournaments with my buddies since WE 7. can't wait for PS3 installment if any)

God of War 2

Rogue Galaxy (still haven't beaten it)

Kingdom Hearts 2 (still haven't beaten it. I love RPG's but they take me forever)

Namco Museum (Still can't perfect score a board in Ms. Pacman, well sometimes)

I am playing Shadow of the colossus (8 monsters killed so far), this game is a gem and is worth playing even though graphic are not great. I still play Guitar Hero 1, Katamari and some party games with friends/girlfriend: Buzz: the mega quiz, Sing Star, Dance dance revolution.


Since I got a PS3 a week after launch, I played and completed Resident Evil 4 and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.


There are still game that I am tempted to pickup like Sly 3, but as said in other replies, I don't have enough time!

Just beat Shadow of the Colossus... very glad I got into that one. I went through Devil May Cry trilogy collection at the end of last year to prep myself for #4 on the PS3. Thinking of restarting and finally finishing Ico which didn't grab me the first time. I may start MGS3 soon... looking at getting Odin Sphere down the line due to the great reviews. I still like Contra: Shattered Soldier for old school blast'em up. And finally, I want to pick up The Warriors since it's perhaps the best Streets of Rage clone out there according to some people.

Prior to buying my 60GB PS3, I hadn't owned a PS2 since late 2001 (I owned 2 and both had the DVD drive fail after about a year). As such I missed out on a lot of their games. Since picking up my PS3, I've gone thru God of War and most of the Ratchet and Clank games and still pop them in every now and then. I also have Jak 3 sitting on the shelf. Once God of War II drops to $20 I'll probably pick that up as well.

I'm still polishing off FFXII. I have a bunch of sidequests left to do and I'm not quite strong enough to kill the final boss yet, I put in like 50 hours over winter break but now that I'm back in school I don't think I've had time to get more than 7 hours in in the past three weeks, granted I've been playing other games as well though. Other than that I still need to beat DMC 3 since I've been putting that off, that game is friggin brutal.

well i have FFx-2 and FFXII , both of which i need to play, but the ps3 games are taking up my time, FFXII is really slow, and lame IMO (battle system = yuckzor), FFX-2 i havent even started. I really liked LOTR game the 2nd one with the co op (i think they all have co op, but the 2nd one if my fav), its alot of fun playing with buddies, i thought anyway lol.

I keep getting drawn back to playing Star Trek Conquest. I literally bought it the week before I decided to order my ps3. I'm always a sucker for ST- I'm just geeky like that.

FFXII's battle system is an acquired taste, hopefully it will start to grow on you. Personally I'm at the point where it really doesn't bother me but I'd really prefer if they returned to a CTB or ATB system in FFXIII where characters line up and take turns attacking each other, I don't care if it looks dumb it's the Final Fantasy I know and love. Word to the wise: be very careful with your license points, spend them only when you have to. I screwed myself 10 hours into the game on my first playthrough and had to start over. On my current game it hasn't been uncommon for me to have a spare 500 points to fall back on.


As for FFX-2... um good luck with that lol. It's really love it or hate it. Personally I managed to quell my inner fanboy screaming that this is a bastardization of a classic and amazing piece of art and managed to enjoy the fact that the combat was good, the job system worked well, and the overall story was a good continuation of the original especially during the moments it took itself seriously. It helps that the game never stops being amusing and god damnit if you don't think Rikku is adorable you have no soul. Others don't feel the same though and were annoyed as hell with the whole girl power Charlie's Angels vibe and the strange changing your outfit to change your job system. O and good luck if you go for 100% completion, took me 3 play-throughs and the strategy guide to get that one.

About all I still play are GT4 and Ace Combat 5. Although, I did fire up Crash Bandicoot 2 the other day. But, that's a PS1 game.

Well I dunno about FFXIII yet but Crisis Core is an action RPG and is gonna more like Kingdom Hearts so you can't really get a feel for what CC is gonna be like from FFXII. FFvsXIII is gonna be the same deal, action RPG plays like Kingdom Hears. It's probably because it's Tetsuya Nomura's team that made KH, Crisis Core, and is working of vsXIII.


O btw, I have 67 hours invested in FFXII right now and I still have a lot of hunts left to go (hunts are basically sidequests that require you to kill some very strong monster) and several sidequests. Theoretically I was at the end of the game at the 60 hour mark but I need to beef up to take down the final boss. Just thought you'd like some idea of how much of a time suck this game is.

Odin Sphere is definitely something I want to get into. I've also heard alot about Shadows of the Colossus, but I can't find it for cheap anywhere. Definitely can't wait for the MGS compilation coming soon. Anyone willing to trade Odin Sphere or SotC for Kingdom Hearts 2 PM me.
