Okay but this has to be the best console of all time if only because of its library, right? It literally has great games from every genre in existence.

Almost every game it has falls into one of two categories -
> 1. Games that have since been ported and now have a definitive version on PC and/or newer consoles
> 2. Stuff that aged really badly and you wouldn't want to play it nowadays anyway
The PS2 feels like a console that was picked clean by porting/remastering. The best games were all so successful that they were put on modern platforms, and what's left is just the garbage.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure this thing was amazing to own back around 2005 before everything was ported. But nowadays, the library of games where you'd still want to play the original version is smaller than the Gamecube. Am I missing something here? It seems like Silent Hill 2-4 is practically the only thing left since Konami lost the source code and we'll never have real ports.

So what's the best model of PS2? I've read a ton of conflicting reports.

Going to be using component cables and using the DVD-drive. Not doing any modding or anything so laser quality is important

I'm looking to get a PS2. What's the best way of getting games to not look like shit on an LCD TV?

Why are so many boomers mad that 6th gen is considered retro now? I think you're in denial about your age, boomer.

So I dug out all of my own consoles and found all of my old PSX games, but the only thing I have to play them on is my old PS2. I've heard a lot of negative feedback about playing PS1 games on a PS2 so should I buy a new PS1 to get the best possible experience or is the PS2 good enough?

Alright /vr/, let's talk turkey, how bad is this system for playing PSX games? I mean, really. I've heard answers all over the board, some people say it's adequate, other people say you lose a lot of visual/auditory information. Does it depend on the game?

Can a Ps2 play ps1 games from a usb/hard drive/ network adapter? How is compatibility? Does it output ps1 games in 240p over component? How is it compared to a Wii for retro emulation?

I'm in the mood to play a PS2 game but I have no idea what to play. I'm kinda bored of the turn-based JRPG's and want to try something different.

What would you recommend?

Need some help with OpenPS2Loader frens. I'm trying to get OPL to see POPStarter stuff under app menu. I am connecting the console via router to my PC, I get the network to work, I can see/run ps2 games.
In order to get POPStarter to work over network I need to set up IPCONFIG.DAT and SMBCONFIG.DAT files respectively. The issue is that I have no idea what to input in IPCONFIG.DAT since I'm using DHCP in OPL network settings.

Any help?

Is PS2 retro yet? It's almost old enough to do porn.
