My brother gave me his ps2 collection.
By - Condition_Livid
Blood Will Tell and Silent Hill 2? He just saved you $400.
I know I felt bad, but I told him what they were worth, but he didn't care. He just wanted to give them to somebody who'll enjoy them.
Honestly commendable. Your brother is a good man
That there is a brother. I wish you all the best!
He has good taste in RPGs and fighting games
Very nice collection! Hope you enjoy playing those games!
I'm really excited! Can't wait to play dragonquest 8 and blood will tell !
Is blood will tell worth playing? anyone mind giving me a short summary?
I'm modding my ps2 and I want to install every game worth playing to the hard drive, so also feel free to leave any other suggestions
(I'm mainly just piggybacking off your comment OP, don't feel obligated to reply)
Haven't played yet, but I've heard some good thing. Also I really like the manga it's based on.
OG Katamari Damacy is so good I went to the bother of importing it when it came out. Never came to europe, so I had to hunt down a friend with a chipped PS2.
Solid 8/10 that. the whole Collection is good!
I might enjoy we love Katamari a bit better even. Just enough new ideas to make it seem like not just a rehash, which is pretty much what every katamari game after that has been. And the soundtrack is excellent.
We ❤️ Katamari is the better of the two for sure. I forget the title rn but the Xbox 360 Katamari game was by far the best in the entire series, though. Katamari Forever was decent but basically a rehash of levels from other games I believe.
The 360 game was Beautiful Katamari. Wasn’t that kind of a rehash as well? I don’t remember a new soundtrack or any memorable levels. And didn’t it also have a bunch of levels locked behind paid dlc?
As far as i know, KF was a "best of" game which featured levels from the other three games. BK was mostly new stuff, especially if you got the DLC. I will agree that hiding all the really good shit behind a paywall sucks though. It's by far the funnest one, for me, and worth the extra $.
Only thing that’s a bummer about the PSP version is the controls.
Yeah I don’t really have fond memories of the PSP one either. The soundtrack is a huge part of Katamari and I don’t recall any other versions after the first 2 on ps2 having a new soundtrack.
Anyone play the Vita version? It’s the only one I haven’t played
The Vita one is probably the best one, IMO. It’s the first one since the original that really adds a mechanic that changes the game (you can stretch and squeeze the Katamari to roll under and between tight spaces).
I love the theme on the soundtrack in the PSP one, Katamari on the Funk.
bro i was going to say the same thing and that the vita version is the best for real i like the vita game much more than the one on the switch the rear touchped really is in use on this one!
The roses level still gives me nightmares.
Man, I tried it after hearing all the hype about it from YouTubers and I just couldn't get into it. I dig the charm, but it feels too aimless for me to get into
It's the only game that girls I date are willing to play with me so it gets huge points for that.
An 8/10? Fucking Blood Will Tell is a $700-1000 game LOL.
Edit: Thanks for the downvote for pointing out that Blood Will Tell is a $700-1000 game that OP got for free!
Being an only child, this (among other things) makes me wish I had a sibling! Your brother is a good guy, please buy him a pizza 👍
BTW did you know that Last Battle is actually a Fist of the North Star game but with all the FotNS good stuff (including blood 'n guts) taken out? This blew my mind (pun slightly intended) when I learned the fact.
I knew that, but it's always a cool fact to be reminded of
Clearly they left the fun out too. What a bad game.
Indeed! I'd go even further to suggest that the original FotNS game was probably bad too since it had the same mechanics, IIRC only the cosmetics were changed. The game plays like a lousy Kung-Fu Master clone 😑
I'm of the opinion that licensed games are usually weaksauce, most often a cash grab to sucker fans of the IP, but there are exceptions from time to time (Astro Boy Omega Factor)... yet *Shin Seikimatsu Kyūseishu Densetsu: Hokuto no Ken* (that's the Japanese name, what a mouthful!) is probably not such an exception.
It's a good thing TC has some rather nice other selections to balance out the ratio!
Nobody is going to mention the random Genesis game? OP may find it difficult to get the PS2 to play that one. Or TWO copies of FF X-2.
Still a very nice collection with many good games.
I already have a Genesis, so I'll be able to play ! For the two copies of ff x2 one was his, and the other his wife's. As for anything valuable, that would be blood will tell and silent hill 2, they are crazy expensive.
As somebody who used to collect a lot of games, and owns 5 of the 11 most valuable PS2 games, I'm shocked I have never heard of "Blood Will Tell", prices seem to have skyrocketed over the last couple of years (since I stopped collecting).
"5 of 11 most valuable PS2 games" now im curious, which ones do you own?
1. Rule of Rose - complete though no registration card. Soon to be sold as the price is outrageous now. Specifically played this about 5 years ago to sell it (price was about 250 then) but never got around to it. One of the worst games I've ever completed. Picked it up at GameStop about 8 years ago for 17.99.
2. .hack Quarantine - Disc only. Paid 60 bucks at GameStop, at the time was the most expensive used PS2 game at GameStop.
3. Xenosaga 3 - complete. Bought at GameStop but I don't remember the price (it didn't seem rare or valuable at the time).
4. 5. Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner 1 and 2 - I honestly don't even remember buying these (I assume I bought them at GameStop) but at the time I was just trying to buy all the PS2 RPGs I could.
I have some other valuable games: Wild Arms 5 (disc only), Suikoden V (disc only), Steambot Chronicles (disc only) and Shadow Hearts: Covenant (complete, and only the second game I've played on this list, however it is a GREAT game, and probably the only one on here I would consider paying the price for).
Do you have the list with the other 6 games? Or is that your personal list of 11 most expensive games in your opinion?
I’m going by this: https://www.pricecharting.com/console/playstation-2
Most of them are good games
Lucky! My brother gave me anxiety, that was all
To be fair, he gave me that too.
Thats a cool brother. Lots of goods in there. :)
Totally! I'm so glad he decided to give me this just as my vacation is starting. I'll have some time to dive into some of them !
Blood Will Tell is the shit
Can't wait to play that one ! I recently got into the most recent anime, and read the manga.
Fat PS2 and all good games to have. Nostalgia keeps haunting me.
Jeez, give that man a nice dinner the next time ya see him! Great little collection!
He gave them to me when he came for dinner actually. But I owe him at least 3 dinner. Plus he has not finished clearing out the boxes, so there will probably be more.
Hey, thats still awesome of him to be so generous. Family is the best
Persona 4, sweet
Do I see.... an Inuyasha video game?!
No... you see 2
I miss Silent Hill 2, hoPe you have fun!
I'm too much of a scaredy cat to play that game. But I'll gladly watch my partner play from behind a cushion haha
Back when I was a kid, I didn't play the games but I watched them being played through. 2 & 3 and part of 1. I remember some stuff unsettling me back then but I found ut all so fascinating lol. I at least have 3 &4 but 2 is my favourite!
Those silent hill games through the roof rn
Last Battle, is not a great game
Last Battle is, in fact, a terrible game. Probably the worst $59.00 I’ve ever spent on a game.
Your brother has some good taste!
Your brother seems cool as hell and has great taste
I do fancy myself some ZOE and Katamari. Have fun!!
I almost bought Blood Will Tell but hard to spend 300 on the game.
Hopefully it's good and you enjoy it.
Wowwwwww crazy good taste. I’ve left my recommend play through below. 😍
- DQVIII?! King of RPGs
- ZONE OF ENDERS
- Persona 4???
- FFXII??? (THE JUDGES)
- Shin Megami Tensai (have never played but ATLUS slaps)
Amazing pick up. So pumped for you. HAVE FUN!!!!
Your brother is a legend
Some great stuff in there, but what fit of madness drive him to buy FFX2 twice?
One was his the other one his wife's
That Genesis game is just chilling there, LOL.
Oh shoot you got persona 4?! Noice. You'll enjoy it.
Your brother has great taste in games.
This is a great collection!
He has good taste, spotted p4 and nocturne hiding there kinda jealous ngl
Damn your brother had good taste in games!
Great brother, for the colleection and to give it to you, and yourself. Enjoy the games :D
Hell yeah! Nicely curated little stack of fire
Outbreak and Silent Hill 2? You hit the jackpot man.
I'm not really an horror games type of girl, but my partner will have a blast!
Fair enough. Amazing games. Especially Silent Hill 2. Even if you don’t play them, they’re really nice for collecting purposes. I’m not sure about Outbreak but SH 2 isn’t a cheap game or an easy one to find in general, for that matter.
I’m still trying to find a cheap fat model 😞
Ooof. Just being given Silent Hill 2 would have been enough. Enjoy them all and post the rest of your findings!
That is a damn good collection
Huh, two copies of Final Fantasy X-2
What a sweet heart!
oooooo Resident Evil Outbreak
Is it fun ? I only played 4 and 8
it’s definitely a different game. I enjoyed my time with it. you play as a group of survivors in Raccoon City. trying to figure out which character best suits each level/scenario is the fun part
I could never get genesis games to play on my ps2
The secret is to push real hard
Seems like he had some good games in his collection. On the other hand, my brother gives me nothing of his.
Holy shit that blood will tell. What a grail. Great stuff!
I know I couldn't believe how much it goes for. I knew it was pricey, but I never knew it was to that extent
Enjoy Persona 4. Perhaps the greatest jrpg I've ever played.
ahh persona 4 my favorite game
Holy shit! So many amazing jrpgs. Lucky man!
Ah yes, last battle my favorite PS2 game
Let me get that copy of blood will tell
Want to sell any of those games lol
Maybe I don't need two copies of ffx-2 haha
Me either lol but if you want to sell any of the megami tensei games virtua fighter or the inuyasha lmk
Nocturne and Katamari? Jesus your brother's a legend giving you these
That collection is tight as fuck
final fantasy for dayssss
Some great games in there, enjoy!
I’ll buy that collection from you for $1500 and you half to give me a personal letter saying, “my collection habits are BS.”
Two copies I'd x-2 a man of culture
Yeah, but why aren’t they in alphabetical order?
He really like FF X-2 huh?
He gave you last battle!? That's the best ps2 game!
Something tells me that Last Battle isn't for the ps2.
Where’s gta San Andreas?
🧐your brother has a good taste in games especially the RPGs
