I highly recommend you get images of your games so you don't have to use your old scratchy discs ruined by your old PS2 machine (saves time, huge amounts of frustration, and just basically makes everything old seem new again, etc):

Use your favorite search engine (duckduckgo or google) with colon (site-search) for emuparadise (great resource), i.e.: emuparadise: ps2 god of war or emuparadise: ps2 prince of persia warrior within; the results should take you to the page on emuparadise you are looking for (has yet to fail me).
