I do have a PS2, but that baby hasn't been fired up in 5+ years, it would probably catch on fire if I tried...
Heh, I hear that. Fat models can be real touchy about dust. Empty a can of compressed air into its every oriface (ouch! ;j) and clear the vents before trying.
Best wishes with your hunting. What's your preferred number of PCs or party size, BTW? Since FFX-2 puts both as three, it's hard to tell what might appeal. Hey, an emulator and some old dungeon crawlers might look good in a gaming slow patch. I'll fire up Wizardry: Proving Grounds now and again.

FF7 would be worth giving a shot. If you are a good player and have a 360, then get "Blue Dragon". Even though it's storyline is similar, the game does have a new game plus mode but you have to go to it's DLC and get it (Don't worry, you don't have to pull your wallet out or get your credit cards out)
