Lol this is strange. My original playthrough of MGS2 was on PC and I don't remember having any issues with it outside of the fact that you didn't play as Snake xD. I was just so psyched to be playing a metal gear game.

You can't extract something useful from his posts. EVER.
Oh I wasn't trying to educate him as he clearly knew what he was on about. I was just explaining to other posters why he said that. So while I quoted him, the message wasn't directed at him necessarily.
Yeah he's a troll but he's one of the more educated/coherent ones.
I like him, he's an endearing troll, unlike Ning who is just annoying.
Chaos Legion got a pc port Did the Tom Clancy games of the time get ports?
Uh...all the Splinter Cell games?
Also, Advanced Warfighter(though they play so differently from what I've heard that it's almost 2 different games).
Rainbow Six as well.

While PCSX2 is a solid program it doesn't work for every game. Games that use the engine behind Champions of Norrath and Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, for example, are almost utterly unplayable, and by that I mean you can technically play them, but the graphics are so distorted it's impossible to tell what you're doing most of the time, the audio is so distorted that you really need to mute it, and you have to disable movies lest they freeze up the emulator.
That's a fairly extreme example though. Other games like Dragon Quest 8 and Breath of Fire V: Dragon Quarter suffer consistent and persistent issues with slowdown while other games like Final Fantasy X and sprite-based games suffer graphical corruption when you increase the resolution beyond the PS2's system default. Final Fantasy X looks great at 1440x900, for example, but having extra little bits of white from the text here and there as it scales up poorly can get on your nerves. Likewise sprites in games that use them often tend to have boxes/outlines around them. Games like SoulCalibur 2 have slowdown issues that are bad enough to render the game difficult to enjoy playing at best whereas the aforementioned examples are still relatively playable.
On top of all of that if you tweak the settings for PCSX2 to make the "slower" games more playable you quickly run the risk of making the emulator less stable and more prone to CTD'ing.
/shrugs. For the most part it works very well, I won't say otherwise, but those instances where it works less than perfectly can sometimes be rather stellar in how badly it works. So long as you don't use it expecting that every game will work perfectly, or even just nearly so, you'll do great using it.
Stop complaining. I could have done this more painfully. - Dryad from Sacred 2.
