Star Ocean: Till the End of Time was my favorite game I beat in 2007. I'm voting for that. I also just got the first Silent Hill game for the ps1 today... But that doesn't count. XD
Ongakuka, that is 100% true! lol Same thing with SH1. :D
Edit: I want to post the link to my blog about the best games of the year I voted for. :3

I have to LOL at this thread because I didn't realize it was a necropost when I saw it on the "new" list at the side, and I was thinking about it while it loaded and decided either Atelier Viorate or SO3...I guess my opinions haven't changed in a year. :)

To me it's a split between Final Fantasy X and Okami. Both games are heavily influenced by asian culture so it's very hard for me to pick one because FF is my favorite series. If it weren't for video games, I don't know if I ever would've started learning Japanese...

It is too hard to pick only one game...

The games that have stuck out the most for me are:

Final Fantasy X
Final Fantasy XII
Shadow of the Colossus
Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland
The Sims (Entire series on the PS2)
Star Ocean: Till the End of Time
Unlimited Saga



There are WAY more, but I can't think of any more. XD

I've been playing through 龍が如く見参! on the PS3 and it's completely amazing. I like it much better than 1. If you have a PS3, I would recommend importing it, but apparently you need pretty good Japanese to understand the story.

Actually, you just need to speak really good Kansai-ben lol. I've been playing it since April. Went through the dictionary many many times to find words. The main story is actually pretty easy to understand, but I find myself too lazy to read through all the text for quests so I just consult the [url = "http://ryuken.gkwiki2.com/index.html"]Japanese Guide[/url] to find everything. But the CGs and story is top notch and not hard to understand if you studied Japanese for a year or two. I don't usually play open ended sandbox games, but this one is quite good ^^

Yeah, my mother in law is from Osaka, and I live in Gifu, so it was actually a lot easier for me to understand than 1, which was all tokyo yakuza-ben, which I have ZERO experience with.

I'm not a big fan of sandbox games either, but this one has enough good minor stuff going on to keep me fully entertained.

Speaking of which, I should totally go back to it now. I've been neglecting it all day. ;)

You should also check out 戦場のヴァルキュリア。Great RPG from saga. But all the use of 我々は And some political Japanese terms and formality get my head spinning when listening to the in game CG. But artwork and system was very well developed. Way back when the visual horror novel ”Imabi kisou” Came out, i had a blast reading and playing through it...again dictionary flipping never stopped for me haha...Anyway i am getting off topic with PS2, There are however a few more good PS2 titles people should check out:

orochi maou sarin - new koei game fun when you need something to hack and slash for an hour or two
ICO + shadow of colossus - I have the novel for ICO which lead me to buy the game.
Shin megami tensei games, they included digital devil saga, devil summoner and the like. long and fun. Took me a year playing through them 1 or 2 hours every 3, 4 days.

My friends got this the day it came out. I was planning on it, but the 7000 yen price tag was throwing me off. Instead, we decided to trade Kenzan and Senjou when we finished them. He just finished senjou yesterday, and I still have 50 more hours on Kenzan.... Crap. ;)

I played senjou a little last week and absolutely love it. It completely fulfills my penchant for SRPGs without having to deal with the point click syndrome that bores me after 20 hours. (Which is why I never finished Disgaea)

Speaking of Disgaea, did you see that they were advertising the game length as 100万時間? They also had a disclaimer along the lines of "be careful to go outside sometimes."

lol, yeah I noticed that in Disgea(you do have to give credit for it's hilarious comments, even weapon descriptions). Senjou was so good because it's realtime. I remember playing Operation Darkness for the xbox 360 and they gave you control of over 10 characters on a strategic map similar to senjou...but it's all turn based...and you have to control everyone if you want to win :p So one battle can take up to 2 hours and most of your time is spent on seeing characters run to a different location on the ridiculiously huge map. Takes 4 turns to get to an enemy before you are in regular rifle attack range...big turn off for me...

My roommate has senjo no valkryie; it looks pretty good from what I've seen of him playing it. Unfortunately I don't have a PS3 or a high-def TV so it would be sort of annoying for me to play it myself. But I may at some point.

DDR supernova 2 is the best ps2 game ever (because it's the only ddr version I have) 8) I personally don't like fighting games, because I'm bad at them. But I've never tried Harvest Moon on PS2 before...is it good?
