    So after reading somewhat recent GBA Recommends Issue, I decided to climb up into the ol' attic to find my copy of Dark Cloud 2. Much to my sadness however, I could not find find my PS2, so I turned to the internet to see if DC2 had any compatibility issues with PCSX2, and much to my delight, it has received an update fairy recently that made a lot of games work. Having knocked out Dark Cloud 2, obtained my dosage of some Phantasy Star Online Ep 1 and 2, I decided to play through Final Fantasy X-2 since I never finished it. It got me uber nostalgic thinking of the different games I used to play on playstation and playstation 2 like Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, Soul Reaver, Battle Hunter, ... I could go on forever but you get the point. Was wondering what all, you, Tempers, recommend playing. It could be your favorite game, a whole list of them, or some game you thought was interesting and worth a run through, knock me out :)

    You already have Nocturne mentioned in your post, but... NOCTURNE.

    I also enjoyed .hack//GU, Persona 3+4, Odin Sphere, and Okami.

    I love RPG's but am going to suggest a couple non-RPG's:

    Umihara Kawase and Jumping Flash I and II.

    Of course I should not have to mention it, but Castlevania Symphony of the Night.

    Shadow Hearts - all 3 games
    Tales of Abyss and Legendia - most don't like Legendia that much but it's really great in my opinion, characters and their relationships make the game really enjoyable
    SMT: DDS and DDS 2
    Xenosaga - all 3 games
    Arc the Lad: Twilight of Spirits - great turn based strategy RPG

    I only listed some of the games I've played but Raidou Kuzonoha SMT games are good too and .hack as well.

    God of War is worth playing. The second one is a bit more pandering but the first game is a solid standalone game. It's a solid action game.

    All the Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Jak and Daxter, and Ratchet and Clank games. If you want specific ones, Crash: Warped, Spyro 3: Year of the Dark, Jak: The Precursor Legacy, and I don't know much of Ratchet and Clank outside of Up Your Arsenal.

    Haven't played them but everyone says Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.
