PlayStation Recomendations - PSx and PS2

On a whim I bought a PS2 from shopgoodwill.com - Welcome.

It had a multitap and 3 controllers for $10. The shipping surprised me though - an extra $20.

So give me some game recommendations. I've never played anything from this era.

Guidelines
PSx or PS2.
No 3D worlds. 3D makes me motion sick. Tekken and Virtual Fighter are good but anything like Mario 64 or Halo is bad. No First Person games.
I like RPGs but I'm looking more for short burst games. Stuff you can enjoy in small chunks of time. RPGs aren't very good for that.

I particularly like
Puzzle
Strategy
Fighters
Multi Player
Arcade Style
Trivia

Is there anything similar to these games
Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday - Sega Genesis
Dune 2: The Building of a Dynasty - Sega Genesis
Out of This World - Super Nintendo
Immortal - Sega Genesis
Land Maker - Arcade/Coin-Op
Moai Kun - Nintendo Entertainment System
Shining Force Gaiden 3: Final Conflict - Sega Game Gear
Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer - Super Nintendo
NBA Jam - Arcade/Coin-Op

Re: PlayStation Recomendations - PSx and PS2

Out of This World and ICO are eerily reminiscent when you break them down to their basic bits.

Naturalistic puzzles requiring exploration and perspective thought, language barriers that reduce the dialogue presentation to a minimum, unfamiliar/unfriendly setting and architecture, and a cinematic lack of hud or control exposition. Neat to think about.

The closest thing to Immortal I can think of might be Shadow Tower on PS1 or maybe King's Field IV on PS2.

Soul Caliber III is a pretty good fighting game that features a campaign with RTS elements.


These are all 3D, though. I forget about Shadow Tower/King's Field but the other games have a relatively fixed camera and I can't imagine they'll make you sick.

Re: PlayStation Recomendations - PSx and PS2

Mega Man 8-PS1
-A lot of people don't think it's very good but I like it.

NHL Rock the Rink
-It's like NBA Jam but with hockey.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night-PS1
-Set in one giant castle with RPG elements. One of the best games in the PS1 library. It is sidescrolling.

Contra: Shattered Soldier-PS2
-Side or vertical scrolling with 3 weapon types you can switch through at any time. A Big difference between this and the NES ones is you can now lock Yourself in place and move the gun, or lock the gun in place and move. You can do both at the same time as well

Soul Calibur 2 and 3-PS2

Ico is awesome but it is 3D and it might make him sick. Same with Shadow of the Colossus

You're right. Colossus would definitely be out but ICO might be tame enough.

Either way I would recommend watching game play video if the motion sickness is a big enough concern.

Re: PlayStation Recomendations - PSx and PS2

From Wikipedia PSX
Quote:
As well as PS1, the first PlayStation console came to be known colloquially by its provisional codename of PSX.[9] This can cause some confusion as to which device is being referred to.
I meant PS1.

Thanks. I'll look at them. PS2 is still in the mail.

The best PS1 game, and the pinnacle of the series imo.

Also might wanna check out Tomba, that game is barrels of fun, another side scrolling action/adventure. Darkstalkers 3 for fighting, and Odd world, for your out of this world type game.

Marvel vs Capcom (PS1) and Marvel vs Capcom 2 (PS2) are two of my favorite old PS fighters.

Re: PlayStation Recomendations - PSx and PS2

I'm having a hard time thinking of a lot but

PS1: Bushido Blade, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Guilty Gear

PS2: Yakuza, King of Fighters XI, NeoGeo Battle Coliseum, any of the Guilty Gear games (outside of Isuka) you can get your hands on, particularly Accent Core+

Re: PSX Game Reccomendations

The PS2 is still in the mail. Instead of starting a new thread I'm just going to post my next question here.

What is the best PC strategy game? Any comments/reviews/recommendations on these?

Civilization V: Gods & Kings
Civilization V: Brave New World (I don't know what the difference is between those two)
Europa Universalis IV
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Blackguards

Re: PSX Game Reccomendations

Those Civ5 ones are DLC for the core game. Civ5 is an awesome 4X game and several RU people now own it so you could get in on some coop or PvP mulitplayer.

Europa is a "grand" strategy game. They usually have very little action and deal with the bigger picture like diplomacy and empire building. There's still war but you don't really interact with it like you do in most strategy games. You're the ruler, not the general. You don't get your boots on the ground.

Xcom I haven't tried but I hear great things. It seems to be more like a tactics game than a typical strategy. I'm not sure if the 3/4 overhead and 3d setting will bother you, watch a gameplay video.

Blackguards is new to me but it looks similar to Xcom but with lower review scores.

Re: PSX Game Reccomendations

I've played Civ 5 for about 10 hours. It was decent, good enough, but I'm hoping to find something better.

After 1 minute on Youtube Blackguards looks similar to Countdown to Doomsday, one of my all time favorite games.

I don't know what "grand" strategy means. I've seen short game play vids for each one. I guess I'll need to watch a bit more because I don't really know what the games are all about yet.

Re: PSX Game Reccomendations

When in doubt wikipedia-
it's better than me trying to explain it more. Personally I'm not into it, I need more micromanagement of my troops and cities/bases/ect. It's interesting for sure though.

That link compares the genre to Risk, that seems like a good way to explain it.

Are you only looking for newer strategy games?

Re: PSX Game Reccomendations

Yes, I'm looking for something newer. Trying to see if it is possible for me to really get into a new game. So far the only new games I have enjoyed are Wii Punch-Out and Civ 5. Both of which I think offer about a week's worth of good game play.

I tried Europa. Went all the way through the tutorial, the first practice game and then gave up 10 mins into the first real game. Probably wasted over 2 hours of my life. Looks like it probably is a great game but has way too much going on and a crappy tutorial that didn't explain any of it well. Uninstall. Any game that can't go from install to playing in well under 30 minutes is broken.

Some other interesting games I found today. I haven't played any of them.
Wasteland 2 (still in beta but looks really promising. I think this is what I'm looking for.)
Banner Saga
Shadowrun Returns
Steam Marines
Fallen Enchantress
Xenonauts
Blood Bowl (An RTS Mutant League Football.)
Divinity: Original Sin
Civilization V
XCOM
Blackguards
Europa Universalis IV
