I'd play a game where you're Link's grandma from WW and you have to go out exploring to get ingredients for soup while making Link think you're just sitting at home all day every day.

Sounds like a good idea for a mobile game, actually!

@Rook - I loved the gameplay in IS and EP.  if I were to play them again now, I'd still dig it.  Easily my two favorite RPGs of the Playstation era.

@Starmongoose , @Aeolus , and everyone discussing the geriatric RPG- why is shuffleboard not one of the minigames?  It needs to be.

It was brought to the PS4.
So digital only?

Yup. This is true of every PS2 to PS4 release. List here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PlayStation_2_games_for_PlayStation_4
Yes every one! Like Odin Sphere...which is on my dining room table. :p

That's for the inevitable ship-ride segment (the ship-ride segment itself is basically going to be an episode of The Love Boat).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Leiftrasir isn't directly PS2 to PS4, it's a complete remake.

Just gotta hi-five my man @Dincrest for giving the two best Persona titles the treatment they deserve.

When it comes to the Persona series, my top 3 are Innocent Sin, Eternal Punishment, and Persona 1.  3 and 4 are fantastic, but the PlayStation era Persona games just do "it" for me more.  I can't deny the 110 hours I spent on EP, the 80 I spent on the IS import, and close to 200 I've spent on P1 (this combines the multiple times I played the PSone original and the hours spent on the PSP remake.)

And @Aeolus - A cruise segment. I should have known.  Old people like cruises.

As someone who's only slightly geriatric (41), but who also has two jobs that mean being online and available all day every day, cruises are the best. You get to see new places, someone else takes you there while you sleep, and best of all, you're nigh unreachable. No phone service, and the ship internet costs like $20 an hour.

But don't necessarily believe people when they say "Oh, just get a crappy, cheap room. You'll never be in there." It depends on how you plan to spend your time. Are you planning to spend your sea-going days in the bar or casino all day? Or maybe spend all of your time fighting for a chair in the sun but somehow also out of the wind on the deck, even when the weather inevitably turns bad for a day? OK, then a cheap, crappy room is for you. But we go to chill and relax and generally "get away." So we get a nice room with a balcony where we can go out and sit if the weather's nice, and we can sit inside on our couch and look out our big window if it's not.

That said, I'm liking this oldsters RPG idea. In the Discworld books, there's a group of extremely old warriors who many people laugh at, until someone points out that there's only one way you get to be an OLD warrior. By being better at being a warrior than just about everyone else.
Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.

You never underestimate the old guy in a fighting game, like Tung Fu Rue in Fatal Fury.
