Hey Folks,

Doesn anybody know what I should do with my old PS2 games?
Does anybody take them anymore?
Should I just freecycle them at this stage?

Thanks in advance.

I'd keep them for nostalgia.

Other than that, you could sell them on Adverts.ie, or donate them to a charity shop.

I've been doing that too long already.
Plus nostalgia is great and all, but it takes up space when you are moving to a smaller place.

On Adverts you can get €5 a piece for the more popular titles. Some rare games will sell for more but most games you'll only get a couple of quid for.

Fire them up on eBay or give them to me

Id try hold onto them especially your favourites. I had about 80 and got rid of about 30 it was a bad decision. If u have storage space hold onto them

I held onto mine. Happy I did so now. Recently installed a PS2 emulator on my PC, and have been playing all my old games. It runs them perfectly.

Any Idea what the system requirements are?
There are one or two I might consider playing again, but like who is to say they won't be on Steam or PSN for a few euro....

My PS3 doesn't run them though.
Why do you feel it was a bad decision?

Not sure to be honest - my PC is geared for gaming. I think any decent gaming rig would play it just fine. When you download the emulator, you'll also need to get the bios files for it. You can dump them from your PS2 - or alternatively, the bios files are available on the usual places if you search for PS2 bios.

Always have it in my head that games I have played and finished especially the unique storys and plots ive come across have made me the gamer I am today. Hopefully I can pass them onto my children or further generations. Might sound a bit too much but I remember replaying terminator 2 on the commodore when I was in my teens and loved it then as when I first played it, games from the previous generations seem to age well when you combine how nostalgic they are to you.

what I did when I had about 100 ps2 and original xbox games was instead of get rid of them I just got rid of the cases, and put the dics on a spindle I got with some blank dvds, if you just want the games but want the space its the handiest way to do it, unless you're a completist an want the boxes and manuals.

Was looking at my ps2 collection last year and opening the case of this and was devasted to find it missing, I ended up buying a second version again but was scratched to bits. I eventually found it hidden in a dvd case. What a game, it got me though the end of summer holiday blues every year..........hmmmm welcome to garibaldi

Preserve your discs in digital form!

Last thing you want is to have a disc scratch or just "die" so you can never play it again.

Have loads of PS 1/2/3 GAMES. Will be moving this year and dunno what to with them. Never really use the PS3 but will probably regret getting rid of the games if i get rid of them
