Blood Will Tell and Silent Hill 2? He just saved you $400.


Condition_Livid

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.


Ignater

Honestly commendable. Your brother is a good man


PoundPuzzleheaded463

That there is a brother. I wish you all the best!


AxelTheBuizel

He has good taste in RPGs and fighting games


Environmental_Play55

Very nice collection! Hope you enjoy playing those games!


Condition_Livid

I'm really excited! Can't wait to play dragonquest 8 and blood will tell !


hcim69

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)


Condition_Livid

Haven't played yet, but I've heard some good thing. Also I really like the manga it's based on.


daekle

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!


raisinbizzle

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.


moneenerd

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.


raisinbizzle

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?


moneenerd

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 $.

thebigwhiteyeti

Only thing that’s a bummer about the PSP version is the controls.


raisinbizzle

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


thebigwhiteyeti

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.


Mistinrainbow

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!


Cripnite

The roses level still gives me nightmares.


hcim69

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


moneenerd

It's the only game that girls I date are willing to play with me so it gets huge points for that.


moronman97

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!


HorseSushi

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.


Condition_Livid

I knew that, but it's always a cool fact to be reminded of


ilikeironcity

Clearly they left the fun out too. What a bad game.


HorseSushi

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!


KingTobia_II

Straight classics


Ras1372

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. Anything valuable?


Condition_Livid

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.


Ras1372

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).


Domeen0

"5 of 11 most valuable PS2 games" now im curious, which ones do you own?


Ras1372

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).


Domeen0

Do you have the list with the other 6 games? Or is that your personal list of 11 most expensive games in your opinion?


Ras1372

I’m going by this: https://www.pricecharting.com/console/playstation-2


badllama1

Most of them are good games


Amateurgamereview

Lucky! My brother gave me anxiety, that was all


Condition_Livid

To be fair, he gave me that too.


HtiekTheAncient

Thats a cool brother. Lots of goods in there. :)


Condition_Livid

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 !


zonte94

Blood Will Tell is the shit


Condition_Livid

Can't wait to play that one ! I recently got into the most recent anime, and read the manga.


deadman000000

Fat PS2 and all good games to have. Nostalgia keeps haunting me.


scroogechamp

Jeez, give that man a nice dinner the next time ya see him! Great little collection!


Condition_Livid

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.


scroogechamp

Hey, thats still awesome of him to be so generous. Family is the best


joost013

Persona 4, sweet


PufflestheDragon

Do I see.... an Inuyasha video game?!


Condition_Livid

No... you see 2


Zeo-Gold92

I miss Silent Hill 2, hoPe you have fun!


Condition_Livid

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


Zeo-Gold92

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!


Psychguru1977

Those silent hill games through the roof rn


Cranders1985

Last Battle, is not a great game


ilikeironcity

Last Battle is, in fact, a terrible game. Probably the worst $59.00 I’ve ever spent on a game.


FreezeBlad

Your brother has some good taste!


M00n_Men

Your brother seems cool as hell and has great taste


SteelSecant

I do fancy myself some ZOE and Katamari. Have fun!!


Mr_814

I almost bought Blood Will Tell but hard to spend 300 on the game. Hopefully it's good and you enjoy it.


FlintCowboy

Wowwwwww crazy good taste. I’ve left my recommend play through below. 😍 - DQVIII?! King of RPGs - ZONE OF ENDERS - Persona 4??? - FFXII??? (THE JUDGES) - Katamari? - Shin Megami Tensai (have never played but ATLUS slaps) Amazing pick up. So pumped for you. HAVE FUN!!!!


Gistdavit

Your brother is a legend


CRTR_2009

Solid.


CalamityVanguard

Some great stuff in there, but what fit of madness drive him to buy FFX2 twice?


Condition_Livid

One was his the other one his wife's


CRTR_2009

That Genesis game is just chilling there, LOL.


theorbnoah

Oh shoot you got persona 4?! Noice. You'll enjoy it.


Minibank

Your brother has great taste in games.


Parrotdad3

This is a great collection!


AssHat115

He has good taste, spotted p4 and nocturne hiding there kinda jealous ngl


arsinn

Damn your brother had good taste in games!


RageMix

Great brother, for the colleection and to give it to you, and yourself. Enjoy the games :D


NoneSoCldFrznSoul

Hell yeah! Nicely curated little stack of fire


BreadDead578

Outbreak and Silent Hill 2? You hit the jackpot man.


Condition_Livid

I'm not really an horror games type of girl, but my partner will have a blast!


BreadDead578

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.


Hyperleaks

I’m still trying to find a cheap fat model 😞


PoundPuzzleheaded463

Ooof. Just being given Silent Hill 2 would have been enough. Enjoy them all and post the rest of your findings!


ganonslayr

That is a damn good collection


MMonkey1208_TGM

Huh, two copies of Final Fantasy X-2


legitimatechicken

What a sweet heart!


Raglesnarf

oooooo Resident Evil Outbreak


Condition_Livid

Is it fun ? I only played 4 and 8


Raglesnarf

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


Magomatic-19

I could never get genesis games to play on my ps2


Condition_Livid

The secret is to push real hard


uwantsum27x

Seems like he had some good games in his collection. On the other hand, my brother gives me nothing of his.


BBgames97

Holy shit that blood will tell. What a grail. Great stuff!


Condition_Livid

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


moneenerd

Enjoy Persona 4. Perhaps the greatest jrpg I've ever played.


Darth_Analog

ahh persona 4 my favorite game


ScootyMyBooty

Holy shit! So many amazing jrpgs. Lucky man!


NintendoBoi102

Ah yes, last battle my favorite PS2 game


JAXH4X

Let me get that copy of blood will tell


Deku2015

Want to sell any of those games lol


Condition_Livid

Maybe I don't need two copies of ffx-2 haha


Deku2015

AlpacaKyoko

Nocturne and Katamari? Jesus your brother's a legend giving you these


bertimann

thelonleystrag

Road_Warrior86

EightBit-Hero

He really like FF X-2 huh?


gnartiodactyl

Hail Dororo!!


AntusFireNova64

He gave you last battle!? That's the best ps2 game!


Domeen0

Something tells me that Last Battle isn't for the ps2.


Dannycar01

Where’s gta San Andreas?


xenon2456
