    I never got a Playstation but I'm a big RPG fan on the PC...and as the PSONE is so cheap now I thought I'd pick one up and get some second hand games.

    The question is: It seems a lot of the best RPG games didn't come out in the UK - is there any way to get an adaptor to play foreign games (like you used to be able to to on the SNES and Megadrive?) I'm looking to get games like Chronocross and Xenogears.

    Cheers

    Nopes, your best bet would be to import a US PS2, then you can play the majority of PSone games and the latest PS2 RPGs as well.

    Anyway if you decide to get a PS1 then get it imported as well, it may be difficult to get hold of the RPGs these days as they are obviously no longer produced.

    I would recommend :-

    Final Fantasy Tactics (the best PS1 RPG ever IMO)
    FFVII - The 2nd best.
    FFVIII
    FFIX
    Vagrant Story
    Front Mission 3
    Xenogears
    Suikoden series
    Alundra
    Grandia
    Valkyrie Profile

    To name a few :)

    You won't find hardly any of them on PAL though :(

    Can anyone suggest the best place to import a U.S PS2? I take it I'll need a step-down converter...
