    Default Goal Achieved: Completed PS2 RPG Collection 163 games (Pic Alert)

    UPDATE: November 2015 (26 games added since original post with 137 games)

    If you think this thread is about bragging...yeah, a bit. ...but more so just pride and a sigh of relief that I won't have to hunt the games down anymore like I did with the PS1 RPGs years ago; and still don't have them all.

    I enjoyed very much Daria's thread when she posted her completed RPG collection for the PS1. One of my favorite things to do on the DP site is to look at other peoples collections. I enjoy them without being envy.

    I have to admit that I enjoyed more to look at Daria's completed collection for the PS1. Overall the game quality is just better, I think.

    The collection includes everything from the following list...

    LINK TO PS2 RPG LIST

    ...except for the Greatest Hits versions and all of the FF XI MMO RPGs I'm just not interested in. However, the following variants are missing:

    SMT: Nocturne with CD
    Inuyasha with Card
    Digimon World 4 without Card

    Everything else from Deluxe sets, borderline games, regular cases with extra content to variants is there, altogether 163 games.

    I have all of the published guides except for

    Drakan: The Ancients’ Gates
    Deus Ex The Conspiracy
    Fallout Brotherhood of Steel
    Forever Kingdom
    King’s Field Ancient City
    Monster Rancher 3
    Okage Shadow King
    Orphen Scion of Sorcery

    If you have one of the missing variants or guides to sell, please shoot me a PM.

    I want to thank all of you who contributed to the PS2 RPG list mentioned above. It made collecting much easier.

    That's just nutty. Very impressive, congratulations, especially for having it done before the PS2 is even officially dead yet. That's probably enough gaming to last a lifetime, hehe.

    I'm only up to around 30 myself, but I've been making next to no effort in my collecting. I'm sure my PS1 RPG collecting will keep me busy for a LONG time, so no urge to complete the PS2 set just yet. :P

    How many of those RPG's have you played to completion? Buying stuff isn't impressive. Beating all (or a majority) of those games would be.

    Nice man, congratualtions. This is something I've been striving for as well, and for the same reason it seems. It is a pain in the butt trying to track down PS1 rpgs now, especially at an affordable price, so why not take all of that work out for the PS2? The only difference is that I have no desire to own alot of those games, I'm only going for the (arguably) quality titles. You won't find Draken, Angel, or Fullmetal Alchemist in my collection. I think I've got about 15 more to go until I will be satisfied.

    Nice collection. But you've got a few non-RPGs in there.

    GrimGrimiore is an RTS and Justice League Heroes is a beat-em-up. Though both are good games so thumbs up regardless.

    Playing RPGs take a lot of time. It's like making a turducken, you have to put one bird in at a time.

    And Drakan is a third person action/adventure with a fantasy setting. I remember seeing the strategy guide for that as recently as a year ago at a local store for like 75% off but I never bought it. A few weeks ago I was hunting around because I finally decided I wanted to play the series and saw that while the game itself isn't too pricey, that the guide goes for like $60+ on Amazon. Fucking silly.

    Can't wait to really get into the PS2 game, but I'm trying to beat the PC one first. As fun as the game is, the PC version hates any new videocards (GF6+) and loves to crash frequently when in outdoor areas (which, coincidentally, is also where a bulk of the fun is when you're riding the dragon). PS2 version has the fun, crummy graphics, and stability. Shame that both the first game wasn't ported to either PS2 or DC and that the second game was never ported to PC or Xbox.

    Congratulations, very nice collection indeed. I am working hard myself to get a complete PS1 and PS2 RPG collection.

    Oh! Not to detract from the hotness of the collection, but you're still missing Deus Ex: The Conspiracy. Wonderful RPG/FPS hybrid and the PS2 port has some nice enhancements over the original PC release, though the smaller zones might drive you batty. Still a damned classic and enough of an RPG that you should consider adding it to your collection (and trimming games off the list that aren't RPGs so much as they're just fantasy-themed games)

    Check Atlus's Website in 2 days, they should be announcing Persona 3: FES or playing some joke. So that will be another to add. Also, I want to do this collection.

    Impressive. Congrats. I do enjoy genre themed collections. I'm keeping up with a complete US PS2 2D fighter collection right now.

    I was afraid of this Q. the sad sad truth is -- I played to completion a mere 11 games. Played a bit around with it: around 25. (lowers his head in shame)

    I know it is terrible, but my likes for genres shifted plus in the last two years I didn't have a lot of time playing. During the NES and SNES times RPGs were one of my favorites, but Gran Turismo 3 and Metropolis Street Racer made me a racer fanatic. 15 years ago I found racing games just plain boring (even the SNES F-Zero).

    What am I playing now instead of Metal Saga or Persona 3? Project Gotham Racing 4.

    I haven't played any of the Shin Megami Tenseis yet or Disgaea, which is really a sin. I want to play Persona 3.

    Your remark about playing and collecting is a common misperception. We love to collect because we love to play games, but that doesn't mean we have to play a lot of games in our collections. A game collection is like a library. The most important aspect is the number and quality of books available, ready to be used. Whenever you need them, they are there on the shelves. You don't have to read them all which isn't only impossible, it is also not recommended. We have to be selective according to our interests.

    One of the reasons we have game collections is increasing the options to play whatever you like whenever you like for different purposes -- just for fun, or in order to compare games of the same genre over time, or in order to compare various aspects of gameplay elements within one generation of games. The bigger the collection, the more options and possibilities you have.

    I addressed above one of the rational reasons among others for collecting based on my own experience. With age comes sometimes the shift in genres you like to play. A good collection makes sure that you have the games you might like to play one day even if you don't appreciate them now. If I ever discover and start to like football games (God help me!) I'm in bad shape.

    That's one of the rational reasons...but let's face it -- we are just plain irrational videogame nuts who want an authentic part of game history on our shelves because we love to play games. That's the sad main reason.
