Just because a game is in the bargain bin doesn’t make it bad. “Old” games are just as fun as new ones… at a fraction of the cost. Here are SpecerDodd’s top five bargain games for both the Microsoft Xbox and Nintendo PS2 game system. His criteria for making this list is simple: the game must be fun, be under $10.00, and work on newer game consoles.
Top 5 for the Xbox gaming system:
- Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3. This game is the best of the series, and gets a rare 10 out of 10 on Gamespot.com.
- NHL Hits 2003 is an excellent and fun game for even non-hockey fans.
- Grand Theft Auto 3 is an all-time favorite for many people.
- Max Payne by Rockstar has an awesome story line, and self-adjusting difficulty levels.
- Unreal Chamionship 2 is probably one of the most powerful first-person shooting games of all time.
Since GameSpot is running a “buy two get one free” special, I picked up all of these bargain-priced games for my Xbox for a grand total of $14.96. Amazing, eh?
Top 5 for the PS2:
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Man, what an awesome game.
- Again: Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3.
- Unreal Tournament. I just love this game, no matter which system I’m playing it on.
- Metal Gears 2: Sons of Liberty, with it’s excellent shooting and story line.
- Max Payne again. This is one of the best console games of all time, hands down.
With the sale at GameSpot, the total for the PS2 games was only $25.95. You just can’t beat that!
