Is this a good deal for a ps2?

#1 Edited by Brunchies (2484 posts) -

Hey Giant Bomb I was looking into PS2's since I never bought one when they were relevant so I want to get one to play all the exclusives and persona 4. I found a PS2 slim on Ebay for 60 bucks used with all the cords, two controllers, and 11 games. Is this a good deal for a PS2 or could I do better and if it is a good deal can you recommend any good games I missed out on. I already have a couple like shadow of the colossus, Ico, Dragon quest 8, Final fantasy 10 and 12, and God of war 1 and 2. Any help would be appreciated so thanks for the help.

That sounds like a good game. 
The ratchet series 
Jak 
Metal Gear

That's not a slim PS2.
 
Also, I'm totally going to outbid you now.
 
EDIT: There doesn't seem to be much there for you if you're not into sports games.  Old sports games.  Otherwise, it's probably worth it.

@SethPhotopoulos:  I forgot about Metal Gear, I was also going to look into that. Also if I hated the PSP Rachet games would I like the PS2 ones?

@Spoonman671: Sorry, I get those mixed up since they look like the same size to me.

Probably shouldn't have put link. Maybe someone will by it before you. *Frantically goes to page and buys it* See, told you so.

@Brunchies: Same 3rd person shooting gameplay better controls.

@SethPhotopoulos: I don't think I'll like it then. I don't really find the 3rd person shooting fun in the Rachet and Clank games.

@OwnlyUzinWonHan: link, now don't buy that even though you probably are going to.

@hedfone: They aren't really relevant anymore and I instead bought a Gamecube and Xbox since at the time the games they had interested me more.

@Brunchies:  Most of those non sports games are very good, I hope you didn't get it because you could probably find a better deal elsewhere

How old is the console?
 
Edit: Sorrry, yeah, the deal is pretty good. No memory cards?
