Good Looking PS2 Games In The Modern Era

So, my PS2 to HDMI adapter arrived and, with a spare PStwo switched to output component, Outrun 2006 never looked better than on the 42" Plasma.

But what other games on the PS2 have stood the test of time, outside of arcade shooters ported over.

No lists please, but a couple of games you might think would have the qualities to still be worth seeing off the crt and on a modern display .

The only ones I can think of have already been remastered for ps3, both these have. Beyond Good and Evil or the Ratchet and Clank games might be worth looking at with your new fangled deelie.

Gran Turismo 4 is by far the best example, can output 1080i via component. Looks and plays like a PS3 game. Stunning. It really utilized the PS2s full power.

Similarly Tourist Trophy, which is basically the same game with bikes but is total pants.

Resi 4 is ugly on PS2.

Valkyrie Profile Silmeria is probably the best looking PS2 game

Playing Kuon and Persona 4 a lot lately, both still look gorgeous.

How easy is it to render a PStwo region free?

Mod chip install (not easy)

I just want to slip my Japanese and US games into the slim and have it work, rather than have to dump them to a hdd.

Mod chip only then if I'm not mistaken. You should have a think about getting a Phat PS2 with FMcB & HDD in it, the reduction in loading times alone is stark, plus no more lasers wearing out

Ah, I have a region free TEST PS2 hooked up to the CRTs, I just wanted a handy solution for the HDMI one.
It's no problem.
I'll keep the peepers peeled for a Japanese or US PS2, one already modded, or another TEST console!

There should be a guy selling premodded ps2s over on the Assembler forums. I think they're about £60 though

Dark Chronicle should still look pretty good.
