Game Collection Part 2: Sony and PC

Alrighty, its Monday, time for part two of my Game Collection series

Once again, I’ll be providing my own little commentary on each console as I go.

Sony Playstation 2

My PS2 was the first console I personally bought myself with a stipend from some science program I was in. I bought the Gran Turismo 3 Bundle, not that I’m a fan of the series, but it did get me a PS2 with a game, so it was a good choice.

Sony Playstation 3

The PS3 is probably my third favorite console of this generation. Because of the severe lack of games that interested me, I promised myself that I would only buy one if I could get it for under $300. I sorta broke that promise when I was able to snag a used 20 gig system (I kept my promise to only buy a PS3 with an Emotion Engine) for just over $300 on ebay and around $350 after shipping.

  • Lair
  • Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Limited Edition
  • Warhawk

Sony Playstation Portable

While I recognized the system as an excellent multimedia device, it didn’t interest me too much gaming-wise, and neither did it my friend who bought one on launch day and didn’t use it since. He ended up selling it to me for $60 including Loco Roco and a Heineken. The firmware was something like 1.6 when I bought it from him the Friday before Brawl was released. Also, I’ve noticed most of my PSP games are remakes of other games that I already own in some form.

  • Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles
  • Dead Head Fred
  • Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions
  • LocoRoco
  • Mega Man Maverick Hunter X
  • Mega Man Powered Up

Personal Computer

My first computer had a 6 gig hard drive and 64MB of RAM. The sad part is that it was great for its time. My new computer has 1TB of hard drive space, 4 GB of RAM, and 2 GeForce 8600GT cards SLi. Still, I don’t play too many games for the PC. I built this one as much because I wanted a good gaming computer as I just wanted to build a computer (this was the first one I’ve built).

Whew. Two down, the big one to go. Anyways, I’ll post up the final part of this on Wednesday. Also, since you’re getting the list of all my games, feel free to suggest Limited/Collector’s Editions for review in the comments section. You can tell which ones they are by the Edition name in italics after the game’s title.

The Doom Collector’s edition doesn’t really count, I think, because its more of a compilation than a variant edition of an existing game, same thing with the Legend of Zelda Collector’s Editions. Feel free to try and convince me if you want 😉
