At the time of writing the PlayStation 2 is a great affordable way to get into gaming collections. There are still plenty of units in circulation and can be picked up from various places at very low prices. As an example, the silver unit shown, I picked up at my local car boot for £5 with 4 or 5 games including some nice titles. As most of you will be aware, the PS2 is backward compatible with PS1 games so you can also start to collect those earlier gems such as FFVII and Crash Bandicoot.

Another great benefit is that providing you have a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Television you can use the G-Con Light Guns. Titles such as Point Blank and Time Crisis really do give the player a great sense of nostalgia.

And of course the legendary Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Rlaying Game, Final Fantasy XI was launched on the PS2 (along with others) and paved the way for much of the online gaming we see today. Square Enix no longer support that game on the PS2, but it is still going strong 16 years later on the MS Windows Platform.

Also handy as a DVD player and I sometime use mine to screen some old ScFy movie in garage whilst I'm working on something else.

There are absolutely loads of games to collect and most titles you can pick up for £1 or less. This collection has over 200 titles. Im working on tabulating them, but here are some of the highlights.
