Following the announcement earlier this month that the PS4 would be getting PS2 titles, Shuhei Yoshida via the PlayStation Blog posted the following list of upcoming PS2 titles:
- Dark Cloud — $14.99
- Grand Theft Auto III — $14.99
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City — $14.99
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas — $14.99
- Rogue Galaxy — $14.99
- The Mark of Kri — $14.99
- Twisted Metal: Black — $9.99
- War of the Monsters — $9.99
For the casual gamer like me, this is great since I have never played or heard of any of these games except for the GTA series and Twisted Metal. For the month of January, I will be starting a video game history series featuring these titles called, “New Year, Old Games: A PS2 Game History.”
I’ll be covering why these games were such a fan favorite, the gameplay, and discuss why the gamer of yesterday should introduce this game to the gamer of today.
I will be covering the first PS2 game on the list, Dark Cloud, on Tuesday, January 5th. Until then, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
