Vagrant Story

Y’see, I’m a big survival horror and RPG fan; without many interests for other genres; but I do enjoy fighting, and FPS games a lot. The reason I do not own many is because I think they are a waste of time with such small replay value and game length.

What I need are games that’ll keep me going on and on; and that aren’t boring after the first 1-2 hours (looking at you Vagrant Story). I get like 200$, so you can list as many games as you want and I’ll look each up on IGN/GameFAQs/Gamespot/whatever, and look at reviews and gameplay movies, to see if it’s any interesting.

I’d ask that it be strictly PSone and PS2; but I do have a computer, so any wicked non-subscription fee games for PC are great. Although my computer isn’t the most powerful, I guess it’s about average for a gaming PC.

Rare games are okay to list too. : )

EDIT; I also need gift suggestions for my friend. He wants a good PSP game; but I know shit about what games to get for PSP. I do, however, know that a port of Valkyrie Profile is being released for the PSP.

Arc the Lad Collections is damn fun. I also suggest LUNAR: Silver Star Story and Eternal BLue Complete.

I agree with Val. The Wild Arms series is fun too.

Do NOT get Wild ARMs 4. Trust me. As an idea of how bad it is: It’s the only RPG I’ve ever played that I actually regret playing now. Seriously. It sucked.

Get Lunar Silver Star Story and Eternal Blue. Don’t get any of the others

He won’t like the graphics.

You’re missing all the important PS2 RPGs:

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter
Growlanser Generations
Shadow Hearts
Okage: Shadow King

I found that Tales of Destiny is a good game.

It’s only like $10 new - it’s a crime not to buy it! (You’re welcome. :D) (Plus, there’s still money left over for other games.)

Even though Sin thinks you won’t like the graphics, I stand behind others in recommending the PSX Lunar games; although the stories can be clichéd and the graphics are a bit old-school, they’re still lots of fun. The characters in each game and the ways they interact make them so super. :slight_smile: I loved Silver Star Story, and I’m almost done with Eternal Blue which I have enjoyed as well. I also heartily recommend Dragon Quest VIII; it’s visually stunning with a fun story and characters. Battles are old school turn-based.

coughCastlevania:Symphony of the Nightcough

By the way… has anyone read anything good about the PSP port of Valkyrie Profile? The only review I could find for it was quite negative.

Try these games:

Counter-Strike (PC online FPS)
Half-Life (PC FPS)
Breath of Fire 3-4 (PS1 RPGs)
Suikoden III-V (PS2 RPGs)

Fallout 2.

You could always try to find a copy of Parasite Eve 2. Oh that and Lunar:Silver star Story.

Okage: Shadow King has a good storyline,easy battle interface (attacking,finding monsters,etc.) and it is full of challenging puzzles.Metal Arms:Glitch in the System is a fun shooter.It has a decent storyline,wide variety of weapons,quite a few kinds of enemies,2 player mode and a taser that allows you to hack into other bots.

Broaden your horizons, buy Flipnic.

Seriously, you won’t regret it. :sunglasses:

Counter-Strike (PC online FPS)

I agree get this game. Also they have online contest that you can win cash or game systems^_^

What’s Flipnic? Is it crunchy?

Flipnic is sort-of zero gravity 3D pinball, designed by a Japanese person on a combination of LSD and printer toner. It begins with a pixellated monkey going fishing to the tune of “Daisy, daisy”. That’s all you need to know.
