Hey, I'm trying to figure out what PSP/DS games to get in the summer before I head off to college. Mege Man Zero Collection, Pokemon HeartGold, and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor are pretty much assured, but I was also thinking of grabbing 3 or 4 more to go along with 'em. So far I've thought of:

  • Shin Megami Tensei: Persona - #1 on my list, but I'm not sure if the battle system will hold up.
  • The World Ends With You - I played it before, but I didn't like it much. I may change my mind, though, but is that too big a risk to take?
  • Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings - An RTS on the go would be great, but I don't know if this will be any good.
  • Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions - I heard this one was good, but I'm unconvinced. What puts it above Tactics Advance?
  • Final Fantasy Tactics A2 - Top choice out of the Final Fantasy DS games. I loved the first Tactics Advance, and this one is supposed to be better. Why shouldn't I get it?
  • Final Fantasy 6 Advance - My least favorite in the main series, but one of the last I need to complete my collection. Should I get it now, while I still can?
  • Advance Wars - I love the series, but should I even bother with the first?
  • Disgaea DS - I love Strategy games, and this one has a sense of humor to boot. But what puts it above the rest?

@Mickeymac I suggest TWEWY (it grows on you, and it's usually cheap).
I don't know about the others since I'm not a strategy fan

TWEWY's battle system takes some getting used to, but when you get used to it, you'll be sucked in for months.
Sounds like you'd like FFTactics: A2, so you should totally get it.
I can't comment on the rest, but I've heard really good things about Disgaea. From Disgaea 2 on the PS2, I remember this quote from some video I saw.
"I just looked up a girl's skirt this morning. That's the best kind of evil, wouldn't you say?"

I would say Final Fantasy 6 Advance MickeyMac. But I have never played it, but I am more familiar with the classic FF games ;)

Alright, I decided I'll get Shin Megami Tensei: Persona, Final Fantasy Tactics A2, and Summon Night: Swordcraft Story 2 if they have it.

I'll get the other 3 Final Fantasy games as Christmas presents, even if they have to be christmas presents from me.

However, if I can get a 4th, should I get TWEWY, Advanced Wars, or Disgaea?

Disgaea is a great strategy game, but only would be for you if you like really tough games. There is a lot of grinding involved and there is a lot to keep you busy for awhile though. I liked it :)
TWEWY is a really fun game if not a bit short. Maybe around 20 hours. It's really fun though and you could probably find it for cheap.
Tactics A2 is awesome :)

Advance Wars was really good, but I haven't played any of the others yet. If you've played the second, I don't think the second changed a whole lot so that should give you a better idea, maybe.

Is Borderlands worth it for single player? Or should I just go with Fallout 3? If I do go with Fallout 3, should I get Game of the year, or just not worry about the dlc? Or Mass Effect 1/2.

Fallout 3 GOTY is probably your best bet, IMO. If you like the game, you'll want to DL the expansions, which cost as much as a new game all together. Unless you're more of a fan of Sci-fi tactical combat, in which case, I'd recommend Mess Effect 1 and 2. But Borderlands...IMO, ya, you're definitely gonna want to get a party for that, unless you're super obsessed with collecting stuff.

Oh, and thanks guys, but I just remembered Kingdom Hearts 238/2 Days(or whatever), so that will probably be my 4th if I can get one.

I'm trying to decide which to get out of this Games:
Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy: I have had my eye on this one for quite a long time. I have a toddlerhood memory of this game, and I also wanted it as well.
Ratchet & Clank 3: Up Your Arsenal: I feel good about this one, except for that stupid robot singer girl. She might be too much "cake" for my parents liking.

Dark Cloud: I don't know about this one, may be too "Demonic" for our Christian family standards. Might even freak me out as well :(

Ape Escape 2: Got a really good review score from IGN. Overall looks pretty good, I watched an LP of it on YouTube, this one looks more improved than the first for sure though.

R-Type Fina:l One of those games you just see while browsing. Doesn't look bad.

Pokemon Platinum: Looks great. I already love HeartGold to death, this looks great only the part where you have to hold down B to run, unlike HeartGold where you can just Toggle the Running Shoes and you automatically start running :D

Pokemon FireRed or LeafGreen: Just an all around great classic, remake of one of the biggest cult hits I've ever seen ;)

Please note I am mainly on a base of a $10.00 GameStop gift card, but I also have allowance which can go towards a purchase (Which it most likely will).

Also, feel free to tell me other games you recommend. If you do, here are the rules:
The highest rating I can go is Teen.
No sexual content or references whatsoever (This includes revealing clothing on women)
No crass language whatsoever.
Nothing too scary or bloody.

Have fun searching and telling me your thoughts gentlemen! :D

On Steam right now, they are having a 75% off sale on Sid Meier's Civilization games that are before V. They have III Complete for only $1.25, but they have IV Complete for $!0.00. Which is more worth it? III Complete is dirt cheap and just not as enhanced as IV is. But still, tell me your opinions.

O_O Dude, I could kiss you for giving me this info, and I'd kill the guys over at the Steam Sale thread for not telling me sooner! I went ahead and got both!

Get Civilization IV, since it comes with 3 expansions, and the pack's normal price is $40.

@BobberyFan

I'd recommend Ratchet & Clank the most out of those, since it sounds like you'd enjoy it the most, judging from your tastes. Ape Escape 2 and Jak & Daxter would also be top priorities if I were you. Sounds like you'd get a kick out of 'em, and they're all non-offensive. Stay away from Jak 2, though. Jak gets mean in that one.

Also, you might want to omit Dark Cloud. Not so much for the Demonic references, but for the sexual references. Some of the lovely ladies ain't got a lot on.:P

R-Type Final is a good game, but not great. There are way better shooters for the PS2 that you could otherwise get, such as Gradius V or Castle Shikigami. Only get it if you can't afford to get anything else and nothing else catches your interest.

You're already Kneedeep in Pokemon HeartGold, IMO, you don't need another Pokemon game just yet.

VC Wiiware is a toughie, though. Hm...assuming you already have a Mario Kart game, and have access to a Sonic collection, and don't mind playing games on the PC, I'd say Donkey Kong Country is your best bet...

Oh wait, you want suggestions for more games. StarBoy, that's your queue.

Oh, then no, absolutely not. They're not directly conected in any way possible. It's not even the real Final Fantasy 2, it's Final Fantasy 4, and even then, it's drastically different from every game that came before it. FF4 is a great game to start with. You don't need to know anything about the genre or the series prior to it. Most of it is straight forward, and it'll teach you everything you need to know.
