I don't think this was ever done here before, but if it was maybe we could use a refresher.

The rules are simple.  You only have $10/equivalent of your local currency to spend (no tax or other nonsense). You can pick whatever from whatever price category you want AS LONG as you don't bust the $10 price.  There isn't anything exotic in here, and this is meant more as a gaming exercise versus a collecting oneWhat would you buy?


As an example, I am a big RPG guy (which is weird because I tend to fizzle around the 25 hour mark for everything), but I would choose Shenmue ($5), Skies of Arcadia ($4), and Grandia II ($1).

Ha! This is a fun question. Most of these games have been ported/remastered over the years, but I guess if we're talking in the context of the DC era...

Shenmue ($5), Power Stone 2 ($2), Dead or Alive 2 ($2), Dynamite Cop! ($1)

Soul Calibur - $5
Chu Chu Rocket - $3
Grandia II - $1
Resident Evil 2 - $1

It's a bit hard, because my instinct is to go with stuff I might like, but also think about replay value, and getting the most for my money. Challenging!

If you like RPGs in general, then yes.  General consensus is that it isn't as good as the first but is still a worthy RPG.
