PSP3000. It's usually 170 US but every once in a while you'll find it for less, even PSP+game bundles. Mine was 150.

As far as games go i suppose I'd recommend Hexyz Force, Breath of Fire III (if you haven't already gotten it for the Playstation), Star Ocean: First Departure, and Star Ocean: Second Evolution (if you haven't already gotten Star Ocean: 2nd Story for the Playstation).

Of course, I'd wait for a while, since you've only just bought a PS2 with a bucket load of games!!
Yeah. He has enough games to keep him busy for a very long time.

I tried it once, but I'm in and out in a matter of minutes, it aint worth it.

Guys, thanks for suggesting PSP 3000. Will keep that in mind. Maybe I'll get it for Christmas or my birthday.

*writing down the more games from xXMelancholiaXx on the list* :D

Btw, are we talking about using PSP while doing our business? :P

I'm thankful that you guys didn't recommend me Demon's Souls, LOL. I was at my buddy's house to pick up FFVII and he convinced me to play Demon's Souls. I didn't even pass the tutorial stage. X.X Too difficult for me.

Just something to note: you actually aren't supposed to beat the tutorial stage, BUT you actually can not die in it until you reach the boss of it. If you do beat it the game will just punch you in the face for your efforts. Also, you can't really lose EVERYTHING if you die, just the souls you're carrying and the physical body if you're in one, and I suppose whatever enemy drops are laying around but that's the norm for any game anyway. There's also no save points because it is always saving, I've turned off the system right when I accidentally hit a merchant and turned it on to be in the same position as I was before. Still, while I think it's worth checking out it's PROBABLY one to come back after you've cut your teeth on others, not unless you were good at action games prior to this.

Also, I never answered the question about Okami from earlier! Yeah, it's a fairly easy game so it's probably not a bad choice to go to. I do think it's a BIT harder than most recent Zeldas though, so they may have an edge. You'd also probably better appreciate Okami after those, but immediately afterwards probably isn't the best idea and part of that appreciation would come from being a fan for years and having few other Zelda alternatives to play.

Sounds like it takes steel testicles to beat Demon's Souls.

Would you suggest that I play Zelda game on Wii first before I play Okami? I was very unfortunate not to having experience classic Zelda games when growing up.

Can you get any classic Zelda on Virtual Console? I can't remember. If so, A Link To The Past is my favorite.

You can also play Ocarina of Time (if you can find it) and Wind Waker GC discs on the Wii.

@Kup: Okey dokey, I'll be sure to play Okami first. As soon I'm done with FFX and Kingdom Hearts. :P I think I should get those games in mail by tomorrow. I'm soooooo excited!

@Kyuu: Thanks for the suggestion. I looked up on Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker on Amazon and it seems that they're pretty pricey and rare. Will check Virtual Console on Wii if they have those Zelda games that you suggest.

I didn't find it TOO hard despite the reputation it earned and I don't even habitually play games on Hard or anything, but I HAVE played all sorts of games for years so that's probably a huge factor. Still, best to wait.

And if you were to go to any Zelda before Okami it'd probably be best for either the original, Link to the Past, or Ocarina of Time, and I wouldn't stay on the original too long if you end up not liking it.

After all this he'll get burned out on RPGs and succumb the call of MMOs again
