    GTA 3

    I had a Dreamcast so when that died a premature death I played GTA and bought one the next day.

    I remember waiting for a Tomb Raider (a long wait) for the PS2 and we got a train wreck of a game. The PS1 had like 5 TR games and the PS2 I think only crapped out one.

    Sounds like the majority of 360 owners :)
    These days Ring of Red is scarier than Silent Hill. Times have definitely changed for the worse. :-(

    trip: I haven't played RoR in forever, but I guess it would still hold up pretty well, mostly due to lack of direct competition.

    How is Ring of Red? Does it still hold up as Iíve owned it for the longest time and have yet to play it.

    Awesome game! Near impossible to complete though.

    Ring of Red's later mission scenarios take hours to complete.

    Hours of progress lost if you fail.

    Some of the later missions take hours. One mistake- start again. Annoying, but still good.

    The only way to get by is to abuse Ring of Red's suspend save feature, it's easier playing on a PS3 but still doable on a PS2 you just need two PS2 memory cards virtual or real.

    Every half hour or so do a suspend save, copy the save to the second card then continue from the original suspend save, if thing go wrong you've got the save to revert to on the second card, otherwise make a new save and repeat the cycle.

    It's a major pain in the arse but preferable to fighting a two hour plus battle again.

    I found the aiming system to be very hit and miss (no pun intended) as well. I often wondered if it was just me.

    Gawd, I can't remember. And I only bought my PS2 in 2004. I'd hazard a guess at either FFX/X-2, Project Zero 1/2, Silent Hill 2/3, or a combination thereof. And all the JRPGs.

    Same here, still regret it. The worst console in the last gen for me.
    Before anyone gets arsy with me, I'm not saying it was a bad console. I just got most of my gaming needs fulfilled by the other two.

    You've really got to hold on as long as possible when it comes to the aiming, as close to 100% as you can get.

    I opted for a melee kills strategy in a lot cases, enemy armour is often helpless at certain ranges, using a special to close to melee range at the start of the battle often served me well.

    PS2 was the king of the last generation for me.

    Wasn't hard given it's mahoosive market share. I really miss the PS2, things seemed more exciting in them days.

    PS2 has an endless array of superb games so much so that Iím still working through them!

    Having thought about it, I'm pretty sure it was Final Fantasy X-2 that proved to be the tipping point. Which is funny, I suppose, since there are a few dozen PS2 games that I like better than FFX-2. But there was an infectious sense of fun about the game, and it made me want to play FFX as well, which I enjoyed a lot more.

    MGS2. Bought it day 1 with Tekken Tag which was fucking epic but waiting for MGS2 to roll around felt like an eternity.
