For the first time in my life, I am going to experience the Playstation 2, in all it's glory. I was wondering what games you guys, the community, thought I absolutely had to play, before I spend all of my money on weird JRPGs.
I don't care what you recommend, I'll probably play it, as long as I can find it for cheap.
Edit: I can't help but notice a significant number of people recommending newer, HD/digital versions of a lot of these games. As such, should I forgo buying a PS2 and instead just buy a PS3? If so, which model? Aren't there, like, 7 now?
