Is there any way to play my Playstation 2 on my computer screen? Is it even worth it? Thanks for your time in advance.

Yes there is, but its a long process to get it to work....I tried it once (n)
anyway once you get it to work it works great. espessially if you have a pc controller. that makes it even better. http://www.pcsx2.net/ check this website.

I imagine they would run a lot faster on a real Playstation 2. Bear in mind questions about how to get these games running on a PC run the risk of breaking the forum rules regarding discussing software pirating methods.

I think you're misinterpreting the question Arcadion, he wants to play his playstation through his pc monitor, not pirate the disks.

It's actually very simple and cheap to sort out, I do it with my xbox.

The best (and cheapest) way is to buy an analogue tv tuner card. I picked up a 2nd hand Hauppauge off ebay for £12. What is important though is that you get the type that has the component inputs on it, the yellow, red & white jacks (s-video + 2xaudio). This is because that is *exactly* the cables coming off your PS2. Simply install the tv tuner card, and software to view input from it (eg winTV2000), plug your PS2 into the tuner card ports, select the input (eg AV) and voila, console gaming on ur pc, either fullscreen or in a window :)

whoa! you mean "composite" inputs. Or better put, RCA inputs as they're commonly called.
