My PS2 history
Today I was pondering whether my launch-day PlayStation 2 will still be working when I get a PlayStation 3, and I wondered just how many of my games I've completed on this machine. Here goes a rough list:
  • Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies
  • Ape Escape 2
  • Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance
  • Castlevania: Lament of Innocence
  • Champions of Norrath
  • Devil May Cry
  • Grand Theft Auto III
  • Ico
  • Katamari Damacy
  • Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
  • Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
  • Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
  • Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
  • Rez
  • Silent Hill 2
  • SSX
  • Twisted Metal Black
As for PSOne games:
  • Ace Combat 2
  • Ape Escape
  • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
  • Diablo
  • Driver
  • Parappa the Rapper
  • Rage Racer
  • Twisted Metal 2
Some of those, I've played multiple times to completion (or what I consider completion). Some were completed partially on Bob's PlayStation 2 back when we lived in the same country. And this doesn't even begin to approach the total number of games I've played significant parts of, but never finished. For example, I played a lot of Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War, but I've not finished it.

Not a bad little machine, this old PlayStation 2. I don't believe I've ever owned a single piece of gaming hardware that I've played so consistently for so long. I do hope it will last at least another 5+ years.

My PS2's still kicking too after 5+ years. For at least a few years it was even my primary DVD player too. And it survived being knocked over twice (and then I stopped standing it on its side, this was years ago though).

I hear this is atypical though. And of course with my luck, as soon as I finish typing this and fire it up, it'll grind to a halt.
