There's lots I could recommend on PS2, but I don't have any clue about any of those games that you've listed (except for Jak & Daxter, that's class).

~

I've abandoned my plan to play games from all my consoles. I'll finish up the Dreamcast game I was playing (SEGA Bass Fishing), but I can't see me going back to the XBox or Mega Drive games I was halfway through (JSRF and The Ooze).

The main reason I'm not doing that anymore is because I was overlooking my N64 collection. I've accumulated almost two hundred games, and there's quite a lot that I've not completed - there's some I've not even played. It's my all-time favourite console, and it needs done justice. I've already completed three games (that I'll review when I can be arsed) and I'm a bawhair away from polishing off Pilotwings 64. I've got four other N64 games on the go too. And I've got to say, even if some of the games aren't the greatest, I'm loving going back to it and having these new (old) experiences. I absolutely love the Nintendo 64.

What about 5 you would recommend that just on PS2

Also you're about 40 odd for a complete N64 collection, what are you missing?

On PS2, five exclusives I'd recommend off the top my head are Sky Odyssey, Parappa The Rapper 2, Aqua Aqua: Wetrix 2, Rumble Racing and Onimusha 2. I appreciate that my taste in games won't likely match yours though. 

It's mostly just the expensive and uncommon N64 games I'd need, the games that I simply never saw out in the wild back in the day. Looking at CEX just now, I'm not prepared to pay £25 for a loose copy of Rampage 2: Universal Tour, or £35 for a loose copy of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. It's stuff like that.

Think only Onimusha 2 would be for me out of those, I hope Capcom brings them over to modern systems like the first game.

Do you have many imports in your N64 collection? As Sin and Punishment is the one most seem to have or want

I've only got these. There's some very good stuff there, especially the one that's second-left on the top row, Virtua Pro Wrestling 2. That might be one of my top ten N64 games, it's that good. I've got Sin & Punishment on Wii Virtual Console, but I'd like to have a cartridge too.

Nice

I've said in the past import games have always interested me as someone who read old mags which would show Mega Drive games early then with the PS1 having it chipped that I had burnt games and imports.

I wanted to import my Cube from Japan but my Dad wouldn't let me and told me just to wait, I did import my DS though and have a few games on newer systems but I think the internet and sites making a big deal about you can get this English language Asian Switch game of some indie it has lost some of it's charm.

The N64 carts are beautiful, aren't they? Definitely my favourite design. Nice and chunky, with that slick curve at the top *chef's kiss*

I flirted with the idea of picking up either a PS2 or N64 but this quarantine has let places crank up their prices. Disgusting behaviour. On a related note, I noticed Okami, Onimusha and Devil May Cry are all on sale on the Switch - which would you guys recommend?

You say that and it might because I had a game shop / market stall but it's just supply and demand, with people bidding on PS2's, Wii's etc on eBay and driving the prices up that if I still had the shop would I still be selling a Wii for around £20 for Cappa to come in and buy to put it on eBay for £50.

No I would be putting on eBay myself or changing the price if I had an online store, yeah it's not nice but would you really list that Wii on eBay for £19.99 when all the rest are going for more?

What will be interesting what will happen after lockdown will the prices crash or will people who I guess have now started collecting for PS2 continue to do that and keep the prices up or will we see suddenly all these people selling everything back on as now not using.

As for your games Okami holds up great still and the best of the bunch, Devil May Cry won't from what Jay was saying as he played them all recently also don't touch 2 ever, Onimusha I enjoyed when I played on PS4 but it still has tank like controls.

I wouldn't know about Devil May Cry or Okami, but I played through the Switch update of Onimusha: Warlords about a year ago. I reviewed it on here, and said "I think it’s a really interesting artefact of the early days of the PS2, a game very much of it’s time. As one of those palate-cleanser games, I cautiously recommend Onimusha: Warlords. Just don’t expect anything contemporary or innovative. Me, I liked that I could switch my brain off, and batter through it quite comfortably over the course of a few nights. 7/10". £8 is a decent price for it.

I was completely unaware that prices have gone up for retro consoles since lockdown, although it's not surprising. What happens with folk and their retro gaming after lockdown is over will be interesting right enough.

Played some of the XBLA port of Daytona USA which I picked up in a recent sale, the game is still fun but now outside an arcade it does lose something as it only has three tracks which the highscore chasing now seems a tad redundant with maybe a handful of people playing it & posting scores online in 2020.

Controversial, but I never saw the appeal of Daytona. And I'd consider myself someone who loves much of their output in the arcades, but driving in a circle (or variants of) against a timer never felt as compelling as trying to reach that next checkpoint did in SEGA Rally or Outrun 2. It may be because I played it years later in a run down arcade, but would I be right in thinking much of its charm laid in it being a technical marvel in 1994/1995? A bit like Virtua Fighter 2 - important title but that's another one I struggled to enjoy from that time period.

I've never played Datona but it is one of the greatest games ever made thanks to this:

It's really only the first track that's just a oval but the 3rd track is something you'd find on any racer which you do need to get to the checkpoints etc

Think even myself just played the first track especially in the arcade, also soundtrack is good

I really like Daytona USA! Like with the first Ridge Racer and Virtua Racing, I don't mind that there's only three tracks, as they're all brilliantly designed. Right enough though, my pre-owned copy of Daytona USA has a £49.99 HMV sticker on the back - I'd maybe not be so chuffed if I'd planted that much on it.

Sky High from the third track is one of my favourite game tunes too. I think of it on really sunny days (which in Scotland, doesn't happen often to be fair)
