Top 9 PS2 Games That Should Come To PS3

Filed Under: Tech/Videos/Video Games

One of the things I keep waiting for is a game–probably a RPG–that grabs me by the hair and makes me play it.


And after I play it, I wanna play it
again because it was that freakin good.

It’s been a long time since I found a game like that–Fallout 3 is probably the last one for me.

Since I can’t find too much to inspire me at the moment–though I’m always looking to the future–I can’t help but look to the past and imagine some of the games I enjoyed the hell out of could be picked up, dusted off and shined to reveal a new PS3 sparkle.

In alphabetical order, yo.

    1. Black

      –Short. No replay value. Pretty graphics. Fun.

    1. God of War

      –I know there’s like three of these out there and the third one is available on the PS3 but the first was the best. If you say anything other than that, I’ll stuff my fingers in my ears and holler, “LA,LA,LA,LA!!!”

    1. Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy

      –This game has the most screwed up ending in the history of screwed up endings. But before the ending, it’s awesome. And the only reason the ending isn’t awesome is cause it’s like the creators took seven snakes and braided them together and expected the snakes to play nice and not bite the others. Or something.[1]

    1. Jade Cocoon 2

      –Turn based, monster breeding, level-upping, engrossing and just plain fun.

    1. Kingdom Hearts 2

–The first one wasn’t bad but the second one’s game mechanics got whipped into shape and the story was a heck of a lot more compelling. And then there’s the Disney tie-ins. Nobody keeps the mouse down. And Sephiroth is stupid.

    1. Okami

–Pretty. Pretty. Pretty. Pretty. The sumi-e style is great. And the gameplay is a blast. And it’s pretty. And it made me happy to play it.

    1. Psychonauts

–Kooky characters, psychic powers, summer camp, fantabulously odd locations. What more could you ask for?

    1. Silent Hill 2

–Silent Hill scared the crap out of me. That radio when a boogie man got close? Nightmares, I’m tellin’ ya. The second Silent Hill took the horror of the first–and I mean horror in the classic sense which is mental/psychological fear–game and knocked it up. Then add the superior soundscapes and soundtrack and the damn fine story and you have a game that deserves a second look and a new console.

    1. Star Ocean: Till the End of Time

–I played The Second Story on Playstation and loved it and Till the End of Time continued to impress me. The length of gameplay alone was awesome. I know there’s a PS3 edition that was released in 2010 but I just want Till the End of Time for PS3. Is that too much to ask?

On a semi-sidenote, there’s one game I’d like to see come to the PS3 above all others: Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete. It was released on the Saturn–or Sega CD depending on who you ask–like coon’s age ago and I still use it as a yardstick with which to measure all RPGs.

One of the most beautiful themes ever:

I KNOW I’ve forgotten a couple of games. Out of all the PS2 games out there, I know I haven’t gotten them all.

Do you have one you’d like to see come to the PS3? Or if you HAVE to be mean, you can have it come to the XBox360. But consider getting yourself a PS3, k?

  1. [1]Heavy Rain is by the same dudes–Quantic Dream.

    FF 7 update or sequel. Greatest FF ever.

  2. The Secret of Mana… That might have been an SNES now that I think about it. Or what would be awesome is making a Final Fantasy game with open ended gameplay that isn’t MMO and leaves out the whiney little bastard type character that ruined FFXIII, I actually quit playing in that section of the game.

    • Final Fantasy is so predictable now. There’s the scantily clad chick, the androgynous guy, the emo dude–sometimes is also the androgynous guy, the hyperactive guy/girl…

      Damn. I’ve left some out.

    Um…maybe I am missing the point of the article, and if I am I apologize. But God of War is out on PS3 already and Silent Hill 2 is coming soon. Though I do agree that some of these games need to be remade/upscaled to the PS3. I would kill for a KH/KH2/COM collection for the PS3.

    • @Saix_XIII You didn’t miss the point. I’m just a dumbass.

      I forgot that they released God of War Collection. Totally got called out on that earlier: https://twitter.com/#!/STBTZ/status/133657757621563392

      I was thinking about editing the post to reflect the fact that I’m a douche who forgot at the God of War Collection jobber but…well..I’m lazy. πŸ˜€

      And this is 100% random but thanks for not being a tool w/your comment. You could have been a dick but you weren’t. Thanks. <–Not sarcasm

    • Saix_XIII says:

      Oh wow, I just realized why I made my comment, you made this post like 9 months ago. Meanwhile Josh tweeted it 5 hours ago. Also, the fact that there are no timestamps on this post besides the date in the URL made it even less obvious that this is old. So I guess we can blame my post on Josh :P.

      Also, everyone makes mistakes so who am I to throw stones? Granted if someone acts like they are a know-it-all and are in fact wrong, I will be a dick so I can bring them down a peg or two.

    • @Saix_XIII I took off the timestamps so no one would automatically realize I’m a huge slacker if there happen to be like two weeks between posts. πŸ˜€

      And don’t blame Josh. Still my fault. I found this last night and asked if he would tweet it since I dug it back when I wrote it. I suspect I should write a post on Kmart Gamer wherein I tell everyone that I’m a huge dork. However, I totally stand by my Horror Games post: http://gamer.kmart.com/2011/10/13-of-the-scariest-horror-games-listed-just-for-you-in-time-halloween-fun/

      This? “Granted if someone acts like they are a know-it-all and are in fact wrong, I will be a dick so I can bring them down a peg or two.” = me happy.

    • Saix_XIII says:

      Ok fine, I blame you again, Josh is off the hook πŸ˜›

      Why would you need to make a post on Kmart Gamer where you explain that you are a dork? You run a blog called “Tastes Like Crazy”, write blog posts on Kmart Gamer, you play games, and you went to E3 (btw I hate you for that :P).

      Scary games are still scary (or well most are) long after they came out. But to give my feedback on that, I am unsure if you ever played it but I HIGHLY recommend Deadly Premonition on the 360 (it was released on PS3, but in Japan only). The graphics are PS2 level at best, and the control scheme could be better, but I found it to be an amazingly good game. A mix between RE4 and Silent Hill.

      I know you are insanely busy being a dork (:P) and a mother. But I wrote a review on it a LOOONG time ago on a blog I tried to make but failed badly due to no one reading it and the other contributors not even bothering to make any real contributions.


      If you can let me know what you think. I always wanted to write reviews for games, but I just can’t find a good venue/method to enter the area since from my perspective there are so many options out there it’s easy for a blog to get lost in them all.

    • @Saix_XIII I’ll give it a read tomorrow. Promise.

      I’m up way too late and I’m sure the kids will be up in a couple of hours.

      Glad you’re damn cool. πŸ™‚

      @TheAmyTucker So how goes that read? πŸ˜€
