While there are many great PS2 games which I played in different versions (e.g. TimeSplitters on the Gamecube or the Ratchet and Clank series on the PS3), I don't even remember ever owning twenty (or even ten) PS2 games. I do however remember that Champions of Norrath and Champions Return to Arms were the reason for me to initially buy a multitap and later insist on getting the first model of the PS3 so that I could keep playing those games. Such a shame that Sony completely dropped both this series and the genre as a whole.

5. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time 

 

I really want to play Rule of Rose, because I heard a good words about the game but it is so expensive even in PAL region. Maybe one day I will find a cheap copy ;)

 

Still PS2 is the best survival horror/horror genre console ever made.

1. Final Fantasy X

2. Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King

3. Shin Megami Tensei: Lucifer’s Call

4. Kingdom Hearts

5. Shadow Hearts: Covenant

7. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

8. Jak II

9. God of War 2

10. Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal

11. Devil May Cry 3

12. Rogue Galaxy

 

I can’t think of anymore games that I really enjoyed that aren’t in the above franchises. I would rate Final Fantasy XII or Kingdom Hearts 2 higher than Jak II for example. But I picked one game per franchise.

1. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas- the pinnacle of open world gaming on PS2

2. Final Fantasy X- simply one of the finest RPGs ever made

3. Resident Evil 4- the best Resident Evil game though some blame it for the series' downturn

4. Kingdom Hearts II- simply the most fun I've ever had with an RPG gameplay-wise

5. God of War II- vicious and exciting Greek mythological carnage

6. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (Subsistence)- the series' zenith, all the good stuff of its predecessor with less of the postmodernist wankery

7. Shadow of the Colossus- one of the most atmospheric experiences ever

8. Silent Hill 2- same as above, but with horror

9. Final Fantasy XII- underappreciated by FF purists because of the battle system that takes some getting used to, actually one of the best stories in the series

10. Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy- awesome platformer

11. Ratchet & Clank 3 (Up your Arsenal)- awesome gadgets and guns

12. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City- the pinnacle of open world gaming on PS2 before San Andreas came along

13. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (Substance)- if Snake had been the main protagonist everyone would hail this as the best game ever

14. Beyond Good & Evil- criminally overlooked action platformer

15. Dark Chronicle (Dark Cloud 2)- criminally overlooked RPG

16. Canis Canem Edit (Bully)- like GTA but in school

17. Kingdom Hearts- lots of charm and nostalgia

18. Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening (Special Edition)- one of the best hack and slash games ever made

19. God of War- gave us Kratos, deserves a spot for that alone, but it's also really fun

20. Gran Turismo 4- the best racing game on PS2 and the only one I would ever consider playing again.

 

I know this looks like a "safe" list but it's my honest opinion, although I have played literally hundreds of PS2 games and there are others I loved a lot that I wish I could give a spot to

Some other favorites...

 

Rogue Galaxy

Dark Cloud 2

Devil May Cry 1 and 3

God of War 1 and 2

Onimusha 3

Mana Khemia 1 (bought part 2 but could not get into it like the first game)

It's nice seeing some people mention Shadow Hearts, that's a series you rarely ever hear about anymore, but damn were they good (I really need to dig out my PS2 & play those again). :D What I'd give for just a remaster of that trilogy. 😑

Games from the same series are in order. The ones I liked more are higher. Other than that, the order is random.

  1. Burnout 3: Takedown
  2. Burnout: Revenge
  3. Ratchet & Clank 3
  4. Jak 3
  5. Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
  6. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
  7. Metal Gear Solid 3
  8. Metal Gear Solid 2
  9. We Love Katamari
  10. Kingdom Hearts
  11. Silent Hill 2
  12. Resident Evil Code: Veronica X
  13. Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within
  14. Need For Speed: Most Wanted

No KH2, RE4 or Katamari: Damacy on the list because I haven't played them. They would probably be on the list if I did.

Also didn't put Vice CityThe Sands Of Time and NFS Underground because I only played them on PC.

 

Shout outs to everyone who said Burnout 3 and Burnout: Revenge. I'll make sure to give you my karma points when I get my daily portion of them 😄
