I was at Target the other day and I saw Colossus, and God of War on sale, and they both looked interesting to me. I've never played a game like that, not for at least 10 years, but they do look like fun. I usually stick to basketball, fighting, and racing games.
Let me know what you thought of those games, and recommend me some others. I'm also not really interested in war games, though. Like . . SoCom or whatever.
Edit: My console is PS2, and I meant Shadow of the Colossus.

Heh, God of War was the reason I came into this thread. Get it immediately, you won't regret it. I've played through it twice (the second time on "God Mode") and loved it equally either time. Very good game. And the nice thing about it is once you finish that one, assuming you like it, you can get the sequel (which I haven't gotten around to playing yet).
And funnily enough, I've been debating Shadow of the Colossus too. The idea for it sounds insanely boring, but I keep hearing awesome things about it, and it's gotten really good ratings on IGN, Gamespot, etc. I'd check that out, it's probably pretty cheap.
Other ones you should definitely check out because, given how old they are, they're probably cheap are...
GTA Series (just bought Vice City for $7)
Devin May Cry (series of games)
Final Fantasy (they're RPG's, so they're different than the others mentioned)
Metal Gear Solid (another series)
SOCOM (2 and 3 are awesome if you have online)
Like RidonKs said, God of War is an awsome game. I have also played through it two times like him and it was equally awsome both times. I highly reccomend that game and I assure you that you will not be dissapointed. Fantastic game.
Unlike RidonKs though, I have played God of War 2 and I can tell you that it is just as good as the original. It is another game that I strongly reccomend. Both of those games are outstanding. They are both two of my favourite PS2 games of all time. I guarntee you won't be dissapointed with either of them.
I owned both of those games as well as God of War 2. Definitely get God of War. It won't let you down in the least. It's a great action game. Shadow of the Colossus is a good game too, but is definitely slower paced. You essentially ride around on a horse looking for these trully massive creatures. You have to use clever ways of beating them. If God of War is a 10 in my book, Colossus is an 8.
Wow. God Of War is incredible. I got it yesterday, and I've been playing it as much as I can. I haven't done that since I got Tekken 2 and Need For Speed when the Playstation came out when I was around 10.
I'll beat it in 2 weeks and then beat it in God mode, and then buy the second one, do the same thing, and be caught up for the release of God Of War III.
