A Turn Up For The Books

I was given a PlayStation 2 yesterday. Without a controller and without accurate knowledge of how well the system works, but a PS2 nonetheless. I don't understand.

But I am now bored beyond belief. I thought people might be at home by the time I returned home from work at 10. I was wrong. So I spent an evening refreshing webpages and looking through the history of PS2 games to look into. Recommendations would be appreciated as I have always had a tendency to ignore Sony's systems, to some extent. Though I was becoming very curious with the PSP for it was starting to have quirky game concepts appear on it. The PS2 games I'm most curious of are the games which I never got to try while I lived in England.

So, to try and most likely acquire:
The Katamari Damacy series.
Shadow of the Colossus.
Ape Escape 3.
Soul Calibur 3.

Curious of:
Ratchet & Clank variants - I enjoyed bits of the first two games.
Sly Cooper & variants - I enjoyed what I got to play of the first.
Arcade-y golf game? - I enjoy playing those types of games to relax.
Bully - just because I want to play a Rockstar game without the killing.
Micro Machines v4 - for nostalgia's sake, but I fear it's awful.
Metal Gear Solid 3 - but I am awful at sneaking games.
Mercury Meltdown Remix - but I sense the PSP version is better.
Lumines - again, I sense the PSP version is better.
