What was the last PS2 game you bought?

Brace yourselves. BRACE YOURSELVES! Seriously, you might want to take a seat before we drop this megaton bombshell on you. Sitting? Good. Drum roll please... Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow is coming out on PS2 on June 1st. Wait, there's more. And it's been 'retooled to take advantage of the DualShock 2’s extra buttons and analogue stick'. Sweet baby Jesus we think we're going to faint.

Above: F*CK YES!

Yup, that's right; the PSP game no one gave two shits about a couple of years ago is coming out on a platform that no one's given two shits about for three years. So who exactly is going to buy Gabe's newest game? Really, we want to know. Do you still have a PS2? What was the last game you bought for it? Does your ageing black beauty still take pride of place in front of your TV? Let us know in the comments below.

    I was always more of an xbox person, but I remember the launch of the ps2 fondly. The fact that the small city I lived in, and still do were completely sold out by the morning of launch.

    I'm actually about to buy a PS2. It's from a friend so it's dirt cheap, and I'm figuring I'm saving on not having to get a backwards compatible PS3 for $800. Oh god, Recpatcha is perverted: "the skimpiest"

    Alone in the Dark, and then sold my console to go current gen(or next gen as we put it in 2007).

    I've still got my 8 year old PS2 and I still play it, I was playing Dark Alliance II last night. The last games I bought were Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2 last week, and the most recently released game I bought was Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love which came out in March. So yes, I care about my PS2.

    I just bought a PS2 (the silver slim version) two years ago and got 32 (mostly second hand) games after that. Only played two of them so far: Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, finished both of them twice. Last game I bought for it was Metal Gear Solid 3 last Christmas. The ones on the shelf I look forward to playing the most are Okami, MGS 2 & 3, God of War 1 & 2, Jak & Daxter 1-3, Ratchet & Clank, Kingdom Hearts, Soul Reaver 2, Yakuza 2 and (maybe most of all) MDK 2. God I loved MDK on PC back in 1996(?). Also, I got Fahrenheit, Panzer Dragoon Orta, Conker, Halo 2 and Ninja Gaiden Black on the shelf to play on the 360. Both piles aren't getting much attention as I've playing through some old Gamecube titles in the past months. Retro gaming FTW!

  • Marvelfan13 - May 5, 2010 11:29 p.m.

    OH ma! my ps3 just broke, so i got out my ps2 (which has lasted longer than the ps3) to play some old games. the last game I bought was Star Wars Battlefront 2
  • Strangleme - May 5, 2010 10:54 p.m.

    I have to admit the last game I bought for the PS2 was The Warriors back in 2005. Excellent game by the way. I still fire up my PS2 once in a while. It still holds a place in my T.V. stand. I'll never stop going down memory lane with some of my favorite PS2 games. I am amazed that games are still being developed at all for the system. It seems like a waste of time and money that could be focused on making games for the current gen. systems.
  • philipshaw - May 5, 2010 3:35 p.m.

    The last PS2 I bought was Persona 4 which was great and I played that for 100 hours. The last PS2 game I played was MGS3 because we have a PS2 up at uni. I plan on playing MGS2 later today
  • RandyTandy - May 5, 2010 1:45 p.m.

    My PS2 broke in 2008. Games wouldn't start up and go to that red start-up screen for some reason so I just sold it to Gamestation where they didn't even test it and gave me £50 for the privilege. Suckers. I used the money to buy a 360 and got GTAIV with it. The last game I bought for it at the time was Dragon Quest VIII. Although I grew tired of it and just continued playing SSX3. I would really like to buy another PS2 just to play SSX3 some more. There's still lots of games I'd like to play through like the Timesplitters series and Obscure games. I didn't even finish Okami. Yes the PS2 is a classic. I'll definitely have to buy another. Maybe two just to be on the safe side.

    I still own my PS2, but it is packed away in my basement somewhere. Last game I think I got for it was Socom 3, which I also bought the network adaptor for. I played it once online and wanted to stab myself in the eyes. I was playing Battlefield 2: Modern Combat on the original Xbox and that game was gorgeous compared to Socom 3.
  • Cogglesz - May 5, 2010 11:03 a.m.

    i've got my hd tv, that i use for the pc, xbox and ps3, my ps2 is still wired up to my other tv that my wii is used for, standard def because they both look horrible on a hd screen,though the last game i got was vice city stories for it, that was years ago now !
  • Xavygravy - May 5, 2010 10:13 a.m.

    I bought Okami because of all the praise it was getting around here. It's not that it's a bad game, it's just that I can't really be bothered.
  • Tomsta666 - May 5, 2010 7:25 a.m.

    The PS2 has been relegated to storage now, but yeah i've still got one. I think the last game I bought for it was God of War, I payed a grand total of... £2 for it on a car boot sale! The last one at retail I bought was the port of GTA: Vice City stories. Quality machine the PS2 was/is shame that the PS3 never lived up to it eh? amirite, amirite??
  • CH3BURASHKA - May 5, 2010 6:27 a.m.

    It's still my primary console. :( I can't remember, but the last thing I bought, most likely, would be Black. Played it 10 minutes - haven't gone back yet.
  • Ravenbom - May 5, 2010 6:22 a.m.

    I still fire up the black beauty from time to time. Though unfortunately last time was to find out my old PS1 memory cards had crapped out. I'm pretty sure I bought Shadow of the Colossus (which I replay about once a year) and Final Fantasy XII as the PS2's swan song. Though to be fair, my friend bought Smuggler's Run 1 and 2 on Amazon for less than $5 for me a couple years ago.
  • sepirothpk - May 5, 2010 5:43 a.m.

    It would be Odin Sphere, second hand. And the game before that was Okami. I still don't have many 360 games and the PS2 is still good. Still have to finish Odin Sphere. Was also thinking of replaying kh1/2 and ffX
  • slapdatass - May 5, 2010 5:18 a.m.

    Haven't used it for a while, but I still have it. Unless there's a firmware/software update for the PS3 to give backwards compatibility (there won't) I won't be able to play Psychonauts, GTA3:SA or Killzone. That would be not so cool.
  • Nocturne989 - May 5, 2010 5:08 a.m.

    want to buy SMT Digital Devil Saga and Fatal Frame 2 the Crimson Butterfly but after that i think I'll finally retire the old ps2. It had a great run. RIP PS2
