Long story short - i picked up a new, slim PS2 quite cheap. So far i've managed to get Resi 4, MGS 2+3, Shadow of the Colossus, God of War and Indiana Jones to go with it (all new and sealed also).
Basically, i'm thinking of getting a collection together as a small investment.
Looking around on Amazon, its very rare that you can find an older console in new condition and, when you do find one, their worth a lot of money and, the if the you find one older than that, their worth even more money!.
Anyway, i'm after ideas for either PS2 games that you'd think would appreciate in value or other PS2 related things (peripherals, books, etc) to go with it.
What sort of genres? There's a tonne of good JRPGs on the system.
The value of the following is debatable, but I think these games have a place in any self-respecting PS2 collection:
Atelier Iris trilogy
Gregory Horror Show
Jak and Daxter: Precursor Legacy
Dragon Quest: Journey of the Cursed King
Silent Hill 2
Maximo: Ghosts to Glory
Disgaea: Hour of Darkness
Burnout 3: Takedown
Valkyrie Profile 2
Final Fantasy 12
Some of those are multiplatform titles, and some have since received HD ports (though please stay away from the awful Silent Hill ones and the Devil May Cry trilogy as they are very poor ports), but they are all well worth getting. I've avoided the ones with very good ports (Ico, GoW, Rez, MGS2, ZOE etc) as you're better off getting the upgraded editions.
I would say though that if you're specifically looking for value, you might be better off going for the Gamecube - stuff like Doshin the Giant, Odama, Donkey Kong Jungle Beat etc can fetch very good prices if they're in mint condition.
