Recently i've been playing retro games on my PS2 as I bought a few of those Mega Drive and Acade classics discs featuring stuff like Final Fight, Streets of Rage, Street Fighter 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog and stuff. The original Mortal Kombat games were always favourites of mine too.[/QUOTE]

I have these to,for my boys ps2. Final fight is great in two player mode,bloody hard in one player. Golden axe 1,2,3 are also pretty good.

Duke nukem: time to kill is great with the cheat codes on. You can run about with the rpg splattering baddies left right and centre without any loss of life.Great fun!

Do you know TD that you can get a media set that enables you to play your PS2 games on a PS2 upscaled to Hi Def.?
It cost @ 20 quid and its from Datel.
Not sure if it upscales your DVD's played on PS2, but it definetly allowes the games to run in HD.

Yes it's great fun even now. As much as I enjoy Doom and Unreal there's something about Duke Nukem 3D (just checked and mine is the Atomic Edition). Carmageddon (plus the sequel Carpocalypse Now) and House Of The Dead are a couple more I've just found on my games disc - plus GTA: London.

My favourites are GTA, and the Resident Evil and Burnout games. Talking of Ghosts And Goblins, have you played the PS2 versions, Maximo, and Maximo 2 : Army of Zin? They are fantastic games.

Yeah, I still love playing it, I bought it for my PC (Duke Nukem 3D) a while back and it's still a lot of fun. The one liners and little extras like being able to use the urnials etc are great.
I bought the original Doom trilogy a bit ago aswell. The first one does seem a bit too outdated now but Doom II and Final Doom are fun. Same goes for Quake and Quake II which I still play on my PS now and again.

Quake 3: Arena is rip-roaring stuff. The original Unreal is great too.

I downloaded the full Duke Nukem 3D a while back from a vintage games site. Also got House Of The Dead 1 & 2, the scarce Wolfenstein sequel Spear Of Destiny, and the old Windows classic X-Com: UFO Defense. Great stuff.

I'm a fan of the Metal Gear series, although the last one was a bit disappointing due to it being way too easy and nothing more than a CGI movie that you interact with every now and again.


On a different note, some genius thought it would be a good idea to release Fallout3 the same day as LittleBigPlanet.

Resident Evil 2 will always be my favourite out of the series I think. Nemesis, Res 4 and Code Veronica are great games aswell and the first ones a classic but I'll always prefer 2 personally. Loved the concept of playing it from both sides and it features some of the best creatures from the series, the boss fights against William Birkin were brilliant.

Anyone ever play Resident Evil: Survivor? that was awful
