So...are you looking to buy a console to get some recommended games, or just games for what you already own? Maybe we should start a thread...
I'd also like to hear what you've enjoyed to get an idea of what might be down your alley. Glad to share.
I have PS1 games and a console that I think has seen its last days. I plugged it in before Christmas and couldn't get it to recognize the game disc. I'm leaning towards a PS2, if I take the plunge, so as not to void my game library and because it is price range acceptable at $125ish.
The Tomb Raider Anniversary game has great appeal to me. It is on PS2 and the Wii. My buddy got a Wii for Christmas and it has a pretty serious "neat" factor. Neat enough to keep it out of the "too much money" for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
I have really liked the Tomb Raider games, I have all the PS1 versions. I tend to like most of the exploration type games.
The Call of Duty, Medal of Honor series have caught my attention and I was curious for the take of folks who might be drawn in more because it is set in WWII than because it is the latest and greatest video game.
