\(^o^)/ yay Peach Follows! my first console was a PS2 as well! !
And you're right, games really suck if you don't have a memory card. what i can't understand is that they're still like $20! i thought the price would go down by now!
would you mind a game suggestion? Simpsons: Road Rage! a really fun, easy game that lots of people can enjoy! and no potty mouths!
( ^-^) it was the first video game i ever owned! basically you get to choose from a whole cast of Simpsons characters, and you drive around and pick people up and drop them off at where they want to go! it's a taxi game!
if you feel like checking it out, here's a youtube video of how the game plays!

OH! and they also have special characters and cars on Christmas Day! and one other day, but i forgot!
Hope this helps! have lots of fun! !
