In a weird twist of fate, I just happened to come across an apparently fully functional Play Station 2 at a Goodwill (second-hand store for those what might not know) and even though I generally think of Sony a the bane of the video gaming industry, at $12.99, I simply couldn't pass it up.
I took it home, plugged it in, got it all set up and it seems to work perfectly. Obviously I don't have any PS2 games, but I shoved a DVD in there and it ran cleanly, so unless something suddenly goes horribly wrong, it would seem I got one hell of a deal.
So! What are some good PS2 games? I've been out of the loop for most of the last couple generations, since the cost of gaming (especially Sony gaming) has gone through the roof. Also: Besides the obvious sources (such as Amazon) what are some good places to find used games? I understand GameStop is the spawn of Satan, but surely there are some good options, right?
I honestly don't really know where to begin. Not too fond of FPS's, but I love a racing game where I can reek havoc on the road (good damage physics is a plus!).
A little bit of RPG, but Otherwise, just throw some suggestions at me!

You never quite realize how much you enjoy high-speed cable internet until you're without it for several months.

We have new neighbors. They are about my age, perhaps a bit younger (so in their mid-to-late twenties). There were concerns about it when they arrived. My roommate was all like "Oh great, we're going to have more twenty-somethings living next door." and I was all like "Don't judge them by their age. You never know, they might play obnoxious music and stuff."
Of course they do. And they play that genre of music that seems precisely designed to inspire irritability, frustration and general tension in yours truly: Heavy Base Music.
Maybe I'm just odd like this, maybe there's some strange quirk in my physiology that makes me unusually sensitive to bass frequencies, but I cannot stand prolonged low-frequency sound. After a while it makes me feel physically ill and tense to the point of violence. In essence: I don't just hate it, it hates me.
I have to confess, though, that they have been reasonable enough. They don't play it constantly and tend not to play it after nine or ten at night. I can live with this.
But the fact remains: It's there. And it's got me wondering about this strange phenomenon of ultra bass sound systems. Are there people who just like the feeling of having all their internal organs vibrated like Superman phasing through a solid wall or is there something else?
I like a little bass. Enough to give the sound depth and punch, but after that it starts to get into the territory of painfully discomforting. And before anyone says 'don't knock it till you've tried it' I have. I had the misfortune to ride with some friends, in a car with one of those stereo systems that have audible bass for a city block radius. It was, perhaps, one of the most singularly painful experiences of my life. It was like my whole insides were being scrambled and I was seized with the incredible urge to just throw the door open at the next light and make a run for it. Like, curling-up-in-a-fetal-ball miserable.
Is this normal? Is it just me?

A while back I had an brilliant idea: I have an HD TV as my monitor and a nice computer which I use for watching movies way more than the actual TV in the living room, why don't I just buy a blu-ray drive for my PC instead of a separate player?
It was a genius move, really... until today.
Of course the drive came packaged with playing software. Fine, a bit crappy but it works, right? Well... no, it seems to have given up that intention. PowerDVD is it's name and I hate it. A lot.
Long story short are there any other good programs out there for blu-ray playing on the Vista PC? Preferably free?
I'd rather not have to work my way through the labyrinthine maze that will inevitably be required to get this crappy program to work, so any cheaper/free alternatives would be appreciated.
