Taking 6 failed ps2 back to walmart until walmart stopped taking all ps2 back for everyone. Then you had to send them to sony and they charged me 90 dollars to fix a 130 dollar console. Yes sony is responsible for breaking the console return system and walmart had to change their whole policy because of them. Walmart also started to match serial numbers with the console returned because so many people bought a second console so they could put their old broke one in the box and return it. Untill this day i never got to finish grand theft auto san andreas because my ps2 keep dying on me or corrupting my save files.

Well, you can get San Andreas for PC. I am pretty sure an average PC can handle it extremely well.

I've had my PS2 since launch, apart from a grinding noise when i open and close the DVD tray is works great, in fact i was playing SSX Tricky just the other day on it.

Which memories stand out?? Think I could write a whole book but to name a few.

-Getting a PS2 for my birthday which was only a month after the console came out.

-1st big purchase ever was getting a PSP at launch. Then it died that week but I got a replacement the next day. Still have it but the analog stick leans more than the tower in Pisa so I use my 3000 to play games.

-Blown away by the freedom to do almost anything in GTA 3, never finished the game cuz I liked tearing up the city too much with cheat codes.

-Cousin accidentally pulling the controller which was wired so the PS2 fell off my stand and broke in May '05 (Naturally my birthday just passed, didnt have money to replace it after getting a PSP in December) Got the slim for Christmas but it was a long 7 month wait.

-Uncharted 2, top 5 best games Ive ever played

Will add more memories when I pick up a PS4, when I get it is up to Sony. Waiting on a special edition with a great game in a color thats not black, white, gray/silver. Maybe will get it with Uncharted 4 and by maybe I mean they better freaking do it.

I remember watching a friend playing Final Fantasy 9 when it was new and just being so amazed that video games were capable of such vivid story telling. It was the first RPG I ever experienced (with the exception of Pokemon). I bought a PlayStation just to play this game. To this day RPGs are my favorite genre.

Still have that same copy of FF9. The only game I never traded.

Final Fantasy IX is an absolute masterpiece and the swan song of the series. Everything about the game is a masterpiece: the Easter eggs, the motifs, the themes, the art, the characters, the music, the story, the gameplay. The game took hundreds of hours to complete, and I played it probably 10 times growing up.

It's a shame Final Fantasy 9 was overshadowed by the PlayStation 2 coming out and Final Fantasy 7 on the PlayStation 1 being the first one to go 3D.
