I owned the first 2 until a few years ago I put them on sale. Had no PS1 anymore, and no desire to play it anyway. There are better ways to do so nowadays. Tales of Destiny 2 is a shit game. but VP was excellent though, some of those side stories are powerful. It was a rather good collection I sold back then, also Lunar fan disc edition, Tactics Ogre, Xenogears, Chrono cross, FFVII-IX, PE, Saga frontier 1 (and 2 which I still have as it doesn't work lol), Hoshigami, DQ VII and a few others.

I just recently was trying to find my ps1 games, and couldn't. I'm pretty sure I own Suikoden 2. Had no idea it was worth money. I gotta rummage the house again and find my box of games.

i bought a PS2 again a couple years ago and discovered Kuon which interested me. it's currently anywhere between £180-399 on ebay.

i almost considered it but i had just spend about £80 on Persona 3 FES and knew i needed to stop.

I’ve got about 180 PS2 games in amazing condition but sadly nothing worth over £50 individually and even that just depends on what someone will pay on eBay on the day.

I have both VP and Tales of Eternia (Tales of Destiny 2's original title) for the PSP and both are good, ToE maybe a bit "dated" by the Tales of franchise standards these days but it’s still a fun classic JRPG with great graphics and soundtrack, VP is a game I'd never play without a guide.

You can also play it on PSP, where its called by its original title Tales of Eternia. Its one of the weaker Tales of series with an awful cast imho. I much prefered the first Destiny game. Eternia, ofcourse, has nothing to do with Tales of Destiny. They just used Tales of Destiny II for marketing reasons since it was only the second Tales of game to release in the west.

People mistake rare for expensive. They have no idea what a true rare game is...

I have at least 1 mentioned in the videos, and I find the others without problems ...

i used to buy ps2 physicals, god hand for 65, .hack part 4 for 120, okami for 30, but its just not practical, even though im an autist for such things, its simpler to emulate. but even if you do, sometimes you just dont feel the want to play.

havent watches the videos yet, but i do think RAD on ps2 ia quite rare. i downloaded it recently for emulation, but the controls are so jank i can appreciate it

Got most of the games on PS1 list. Valkyrie Profile, Suikoden 2, Klonoa. I own Haunting Ground on PS2 also. Didn't know it was considered rare. I purchased these on release day and just kept them. I'm never gonna sell my Playstation collection.

I was about to post my super clean complete copy of Ku-on.
I’m seeing a price value at around $500-$900

Anybody wants it? I was approached by a cloaked spanish merchant who offered to buy it at a high price, but I’m opened to counter-offers

Having the games is one thing, having them in mint condition is another. PS1 and PS2's sure were good at trashing discs!

This is why I’ll swing by a thrift shop if I’m out at a small town. You never know what places will charge for the stuff they have donated. I once found a copy of .hack, but the disc was scratched up pretty bad.

I bought Rule of Rose at a flea market a few years ago for like €8. Funny thing is, at the time I bought it I knew about the game from back when it came out, but I also had no idea it had become so rare and expensive, only found out later.

It's also an absolutely fantastic psychological/introspective horror, maybe the best from the PS2 era.

Man i didn't know Haunting Ground and Rule of Rose are worth that much. Gonna dig around the boxes in my parrents attic. I'm sure HG is still there, Rule of Rose not so much as i didn't like the game and could have sold it...
