It would literally be a museum in my home which has every PAL Playstation 2 game that has ever been made. It would be quite the sight to see mind you considering I'll need 3 more shelves to fit the entire library on there.

"Phase Alternating Line" - It's the way the video is encoded. In North America we use NTSC, in Japan they use NTSC-J, and in Europe the standard is PAL.

So when someone references PAL games they are referring to the European release.

It the 'region' that covers most of Asia, Africa, Europe and Oceania in the game releasing world. Some games in Japan arent available in Europe, they are in differnt zones.

edited my mistake, PAL isnt the zone where the US is, its Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania.

NTSC is the video system or standard used in North America and most of South America. In NTSC, 30 frames are transmitted each second. Each frame is made up of 525 individual scan lines.

PAL is the predominant video system or standard mostly used overseas. In PAL, 25 frames are transmitted each second. Each frame is made up of 625 individual scan lines.

Phase Alternating Line it's the European equivalent of NTSC, the US 480i standard for television. However it was developed several years later and so has better definition and colour but only shows 25 frames per second instead of 29.997. Games made for the American market wont work on unmodded systems in Europe.

Although the French use a different system which was then copied by the Soviets.

So your motivation is appearances? Like buying a piece of artwork you like an hanging it on the wall at home? I suppose I can sort of understand it in that context, but I still wouldn't be impressed that you bothered to buy the worst PS2 games ever made.

I really enjoy collecting, it makes me happy. To other people, such as yourself, may not find it as enjoyable or amazing as I see it but each to their own I guess :)

Those shitty games are part of ps2 history as well. OP is a collector, a completionist etc. It's like the guys who want to own every MoTown record out there.

You are literally Zoidberg with the whole "Your hobby is bad, and you should feel bad!" attitude.

I think OP is doing this more for himself than to impress others. It seems like it's just a fun little thing for him to do.

Your shelf needs some lights to shine upon your collection! Adds to it's authenticity ;)

Hmm, like LED's behind the game cases so it shines from behind them? The deep blue color similar to the Playstation 2 color as well.. You know, I've never thought about doing that but it actually seems like an amazing idea!
