The 12 best PS2 games to own forever

SBG: "The Best to Own Forever series isn’t about what’s great right now. It’s about what will be great in 10 years, even though there will be better-looking games and later sequels, and what will keep you pulling that dusty old console out of the closet every once in a while. In this installment, we look at the long-lived PS2." (Culture, Dragon Quest VIII, Final Fantasy XII, Gitaroo Man, Katamari Damacy, Kingdom Hearts II, Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil , PS2, Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne, Sky Gunner, Suikoden V)

Good call out on black, one of the best fps made. I would've also included Mercenaries and Psi-Ops.

good list. davemirras bmx2 was so good one of the first games i played for ps2. bully was also really good, and i had Black in my list but took it out because i only played it i didnt play the whole thing, the shooting and the graphics were incredible tho.

and mercenaries was insane too. too many games.

Most of the best games aren't in that list!

FFXII over FFX. Suikoden V over Suikoden III. Maximo over Jak... What crappy list is this? DQVIII and Nocturne are the only games on that list that are worth mentioning.

There were so many ps2 games I don't know how this list is even possible, so many flavors on that system...I would personally throw ico on there I was so unexpectedly immersed in that game.

What a horrible list...

It's a shame that some people actually consider KH too childish. They're all great games and if you accept them for what they are and don't focus on how cheesy it can be they are fun games with great characters.

All your lists are made of great games, no doubt. But any game that has a good HD remake or re-release, or was multi-plat and as good or better on the other system was considered ineligible for the purposes of this list.

That did remove a number of games that we would have put on it otherwise.
