Out of all the ps2 games, out of some of the greatest titles ever released in the history of gaming, they give us freakin dora. Wtf sony?

flankhim2278d ago

They need to put the Socom's in the store!

tehpees32278d ago

Am I the only one that wants Smugglers Run and War of the Monsters?

Angels37852278d ago

They cancel the the KIllzone ps2 classic, but give us this???? what the hell!!!!?!?!?!?!??!

PoSTedUP2278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

socom, smugglers run and killzone. ah my childhood....

no but yeah socom2 on the Ps store! there were only 40 people playing online yesterday in the world, it's getting sadder and sadder as the months go on... im thankful that the servers are still up tho.

TheBigShamona2278d ago

@tehpees3 Those, along with the original killzone, are my favorite ps2 games ever and are part of my fondest memories:)

moparful992278d ago

@tehpees3 Smugglers run was the first game I bought when I got my first ps2... Wow you just brought back some memories..

Oh_Yeah2278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

never even knew there was a such thing on ps2... i just want some dark cloud 1 & 2, klonoa 2, the bouncer, manhunt, and the warriors.

EVILDEAD3602278d ago

@ Ockbar..

props for bringing up The Bouncer..would have spit out drink..

I'm still hoping they announce the original Killzone HD in 3D..

But would scream like a girl who saw a giant spider if they announce King's Field HD collection.

If Team ICO could bless us with Shadow in 3D..anything is possible..


GuyThatPlaysGames2278d ago

I agree for Socom for singleplayer but the only is abandoned. Nobody is on there. Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't they shutting down the Socom servers?

Dee_912278d ago

think of the kids !!
think ... of .. the .. kids !!

BattleAxe2278d ago

@ flankhim,

They definitely need to put the Socom games in the store. Other games I can think of would be:
- Killzone
- Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm
- Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3
- Gran Turismo 2, 3 & 4
- Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 & 4
- Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005
- Medal of Honor: Frontline
- Medal of Honor: Rising Sun
- Medal of Honor: European Assault
- Star Wars: Battlefront
- Star Wars: Bounty Hunter
- Star Wars: Starfighter
- Battlefield 2: Modern Combat
- Black

When I hear "PS2 classic" I imagine a game that's classic in terms of being great...not a random game being called classic cause it's fucking antique lol. Waste of space on disc or PSN bandwidth lol.

I wish there could be a hd remake for "the matrix path of neo"

TotalHitman2278d ago

I had a dream that there was a HD remake of Path of Neo... lol.

QuodEratDemonstrandm2278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

OMG!! Sony released a KID'S GAME! WTF were they thinking?!?!?!?! Now the PS3 is DOOMED!!!!

Kinect2278d ago

Ps3 was doomed long ago please get ur self updated with news

Ingram2278d ago

^Says the guy named Kinect

asterisk6192278d ago

I would love to see Kingdom Hearts HD instead of DORA >:3

WeskerChildReborned2278d ago

Aha i hope it's not Dora the Explorer.

Patriots_Pride2278d ago

Sony were not kidding when they said that they want to make this xmas a family xmas.

Lior2278d ago

Sony I'm begging you for gran turismo 3 HD

dc12278d ago

The next GT is in development.

I get HD remakes (In fact, I love them).
However.. not for Simulations.

This is comparable to making an HD remake for NFL 2K6.

Lovable2278d ago

I've been waiting for a long time for this!!!

Thanks Sony

MazzingerZ2278d ago

The game looks way and plays better than many of those wanted classics but I agree, when you hear "classic" the last thing that comes to your mind is Dora.

However, not against its release as long as the library of PS2 games on the PS3 increases so everyone can find something to play.

Similar to how PSP library has grown for PS Vita, I know people complains about the lack of new content on Vita men for guys like me that took a long break of the PSP until a real handheld that wasn't a turn off when switching between PS3 quality and handheld quality showed up (=PSV) there are a lot of games there to keep me busy...catching up with lots of PSP games, super cheap today!

back to topic, I'm a dad and can see the value in a Dora game, not everybody plays in it's room games, gamers also grow up and get kids ;)

Jamzluminati2278d ago

Dora? Awesome. Now give me my damn Vice City.

Theangrybogan2278d ago

I was thinking the same except San Andreas!

Son_Lee2278d ago

Yes! Haunting Ground! My friend had this but I never got a chance to play it!

Kyosuke_Sanada2278d ago

Pick it up! It was one of the best games of last generation and it still looks pretty good even to today's standards.

-MD-2278d ago

I never played it either but remember reading about it when it originally came out, back then I wasn't much of a horror fan.

Do PS2 classics ever go on sale?

cpayne932278d ago

Was it really that good? I've never heard of it. At first I was excited because at first glance it looked like silent hill, but I guess they won't do that since they have the hd collection.

Kyosuke_Sanada2278d ago

The only people I knew who had a problem of the game was gamers who played it assuming that it played like Resident Evil and like your comment revealed Capcom never gave that game any exposure whatsoever.

gaden_malak2278d ago

Haunting Ground was pretty cool. Not on the Silent Hill level but very under-rated.

Kyosuke_Sanada2278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

Haunting Ground, the game that took survival horror to the next level but got criminally underrated due to people misunderstanding it's vision. It was a huge game with no load times, brilliant puzzles and disturbing yet awesome cast with a ton of unlockables to boot.

You want to play the game that was the understudy for Amnesia then please pick this up if you haven't already....

Random fact: This game ran on the Resident Evil Outbreak engine.

HarryMasonHerpderp2278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

So true, I got up to the part where that creepy ass women hunts you down with a knife.Scared the crap out of me.
Brilliant game.

Lord_Sloth2278d ago

Haunting Ground was the game with the dog that made a guest appearance in RE4, right?

Kyosuke_Sanada2278d ago

I remember Huey and Fiona making an appearance in Tatsunoko vs Capcom but the stray dog in Resident Evil 4 does look alot like him. Never noticed it until now, thanks for reminding me......

DonMingos2278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

I will definetilly pick haunting ground. If they launch clock tower games and Rule of Rose then I will complete my collection for The best survival horror games I missed on the PS2

Beate2278d ago

Dora the Explorer is not a PlayStation 2 classic...

pixelsword2278d ago

I don't think it's even a classic...

KwietStorm2278d ago

Your avatar suits this so perfectly

LastDance2278d ago

I don't even think it's a game

gintoki7772278d ago

Dora the Explorer was a masterpiece. It almost exactly replicated the experience of the T.V. which in itself is beautiful. The Graphics are also incredible as they bring Dora to life as you have never seen before.

Patriots_Pride2278d ago

Sounds like you played the shit out of this game when your were 5.
