The End of an Era: Looking back at the PlayStation 2's best games

GameZone writes, "We couldn't help but look back at some of the PS2's best games, whether they were sequels that lived beyond the hype or new IP's that remain quite popular in this generation of gaming. So, without further ado, here are various PS2 games that are well worth revisiting, even if that means tracking down a used system and playing the classics all over again." (God of War, God of War 2, Grand Theft Auto III, Katamari Damacy, okami, PS2, Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus)

No Final Fantasy X, Metal Gear Solid 2 & 3, Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2, or Resident Evil 4? For shame.

Not being a d*ck to you here EliteDave, but Mikey, your question is a bit void with him only having one bubble =P

Just the thought that that was 12 years ago terrifies me. So many good times though =)

My top PS2 titles: The Suffering series, MGS2/3, Ratch and Clank, GTA, Prince Of Persia, Burnout 3, Need For Speed Undercover, Bloody Roar, Tekken...

plus so many more... PS2 will probably be the remembered as the greatest generation of home consoles ever since the 2D to 3D jump. Too many bad habits set in the industry this gen that i won't remember anywhere near as fondly as the trusty ol' PS2 =')

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Metal Gear Solid 2 are my favorites.

No timesplitters plus most of the other games mentioned in this forum, this list is pretty lame.

God of War games were my favourite
along with Prince of Persia, Devil May Cry, Tekken and Ratchet and Clank!

I remember when God of War 2 came out, it put a helluva lot of what we were seeing touted as "next gen" games to shame. Fantastic series all around. Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 were 2 of my favourite PS2 games, but the first Devil May Cry, SSX Tricky and Baldur's Gate:DA would all be on my list as well.

I think the list it's pretty good but at the same time left so many favorites out, just an example of how good was the PS2 lineup. You can do a top 100 and still don't include lots of amazing games.

Grandia is my fav
Hicken  +   467d ago
Hope you don't mean Grandia II. I love the game, but the PS2 port was almost unplayable at parts due to lag.

On topic, the list isn't nearly lengthy enough, and suspiciously lacks any number of JRPGS that are considered superb(from FFX to virtually every SMT). There's also no Metal Gear or Zone of the Enders, among other notable snubs.

I'd suggest going back to the drawing board with this one.

Okami was my favorite. I remeber when I took that game out of my gamefly sleeve.
