    So Im stocking up on some old school gaming. Already have a pretty good basic collection. For my PS3 so far I have the following:

    FFVII
    FFIX
    The old school SNES game that came out on PSX. (Chrono Trigger and the FF's)

    I also have Vagrant Stories, Xenogears, a few others I can't remember.

    But Im looking for some more unique ones, to snag off of Amazon. Either from PSX or PS2.

    FFVIII was pretty good, Chrono Cross as well.

    Lunar is expensive on Amazon. I had it before and beat it, was one of the best RPG's I had played. Suikoden i never heard of, but theres 1-2 for PSX and 3-5 for ps2? are they all good?

    Another one I thought of, if you haven't tried the dark cloud games they aren't bad at all.

    Never even heard of Dark Cloud. Gonna jot that one down to look at it. What about some Ps2 ones, Shadow of Collosus? Front Mission 4? Not sure of any others..I missed the Ps2 boat other than I think Xengosaga, and FFX/X-2


    Edit: Dark Cloud is ps2 oops..

    Anyone played Dragon Quest VIII, or Arc the Lad, ermm Radiata Stories? Those are listed as other recommendations..they look..OK...nothing legendary.

    I didn't personally like Shadow of the Colossus, never tried Front Mission 4. Honestly one of the best playing RPG's on the PS2 in my opinion was Kingdom Hearts, it's a bit kid oriented but the game play was phenomenal.

    It's not as bad as it sounds, you forget it's Disney part way through and just go for the game play/story

    What about the 2nd one? Worth it as well?


    Anyone heard of Saga Frontier?

    Or the Grandia Series?

    FF Tactics, 2nd for Shadow of the Colossus. Might have to find my old Playstation games, Im sure there are quite a few more.

    Are you looking to buy some of these second hand?
