I remember not finishing X when I first played it. I got inside Sin (lol) then went off to get ultimate weapons, then I think I went on holiday or something and lost interest in finishing it.
Finished it the second time though.
That game gets a lot of stick, and whilst I'll agree that some characters are irritating and having no free roaming is a bit bald, it's still great; you can customise your weapons and armours abilities which I like and really tailor your summons to excel in certain things (black magic etc). Plus some of the locations are lurverly. Auron is also one of the coolest FF characters in the series, and Yojimbo is one of the coolest summons.

I always like to try and finish a game or I don't feel I've got the whole experience from it.

Although it's a tad old now I'd still like to play through Shadow of the Colossus, as I never did at the time. Might also return and spend some time with Ico.

Having recently played the HD remakes (and selling my PS2 originals) I'd say it's well worth it. They both nail the atmosphere they were going for perfectly. ICO hasn't aged too badly and SotC definetely hasn't. They're both pretty short too. Really love both of them.

If/when I get a Vita, I'll be getting Final Fantasy X. I don't feel like I gave it a proper chance back in the day, I think I only played it for three or four hours.

For my birthday I think I'll ask for XIII and XIII-2, because why the Hell not. I've heard that XIII would have been a much better game had it not been called Final Fantasy, and that XIII-2 feels more like a FF game.

I adored Ico first time around. Still have my original copy with the cardboard case and postcards. Never bought SotC at the time but I still own a PS2 so might just get a cheap old copy.

Ico and SotC are two other games I hope come out on Vita.

Basically, I want to live in the past without having to buy a used PS2.

I liked X. Hell I even liked X-2.

That's fairly accurate.

Awesome, I'll be buying those today. SCEE said recently that they're determined to get more PSone Classics out in Europe, which is a good thing. Hopefully we'll get the complete American selection.

I also noticed a "PS2 Classics" section. Is that for the Vita? If so, once there's a decent catalog, or if any of the Ace Combat games come out, then I will buy one.


EDIT: You should post a review of the Vita!

I caught all the fish on Animal Crossing. Now just the bugs and paintings left to collect.
