    Its a very gooey idea indeed.

    Lame joke aside, emulate the PS2, and buy a 3DS when it comes out or one of the three consoles out there currently.

    Still a good idea since there are LOADS of awesome games for PS2.
    Don't forget Shadow of The Colossus, Sly Series, Jak Series, Silent Hill, Okami, and more on other sites.
    The graphics are decent, too.

    Definitely worth it!

    The Onimusha games are badass if your into playing as a samurai that kills endless amounts of sword swinging zombies with cool boss's.
    Trilogy for $20

    there are a great bunch of games for the ps2. katamari series was fun and the punisher was great (if you like tons of shooting and blood).

    I wonder how well the PS2 emulation is on PC currently. Would it work well on a Q6600 with a 360 controller?

    Emulate.

    Aaaand remember, chiiiiildren.....


    If you're going to buy used PS2 games, you may as well burn them with ESR and boot them with FreeMCBoot anyway, because that money goes straight to GameStop/whatever used outlet you're buying from.

    However, buying games from Atlus via mail order is considered "general win".

    Another upside to the PS2 is, a lot of the game are better than, or as good as ones out now, and are (mostly) piss-cheap.

    Oh, and if you're an RPG buff, pretty much anything with the Shin Megami Tensei label will give you a case of the little known "Hee-ho-hepatitis". (In other words, they're good.)

    Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 1/2 (they're the same game on two discs) has some of the most amazing twists and moments you will ever see in an RPG. Damn fun, too.

    Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne needs to be experienced. It is the quintessential Shin Megami Tensei experience: Dark, foreboding, post-apocalyptic, complex, turn-based, utterly shocking, and deliciously fun.

    Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 1. I don't really think this game is..."fun", persay, but I think as an experiment, it works. This game was the SMT team stretching their wings and finding out what does and doesn't work when you put SMT in an action format. I have yet to play number 2.

    Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES. (Avoid non-FES P3. It's not bad, just not all there.) All I can say is that it retains the quality of the SMT series in a new format, with a brand new personality behind the creative wheels. It's much more popular and well-known than it's counterparts due to the high-school simulation, and it doesn't suffer in quality because of it. It's much darker than it's sequel, the eternally catchy and highly addictive...

    Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4. For me, this game really drove home the achievement of completing a dungeon quickly. I think that's what the weather system was all about, as so much could be done on sunny and rainy days. I'm still playing it, but I really, really love it. Play P3FES first, though.

    i wouldn't emulate it.

    the ps2 has a very solid library...

    the silent hill games are a must, as are the fatal frames, the siren games, haunting ground, kuon, clock tower 3, rule of rose, kingdom hearts, jak and daxter, sly cooper, okami, shadow hearts series, obscure, ratchet and clank. i could go on
