I don't think any console will top it, for me.

The variety in the library alone proves this,...and for the sales junkies it will most likely remain king in that category look at the parity in the industry now.

it is one of the best. i have enjoyed gaming for the last 30+ years that i really can't say if one platform is more deserving of the sole title of "best".

there have been many ups and downs in this industry when it comes to the games and the consoles that played them. PS2 is definitely in the "ups" category in both respects.

When I look back at the PS2 and its humongous, amazing and diverse library of games, I believe that it was an honor to have been alive during its generation and to have played so many of its games.

SuburbanHell1357d ago

Records are meant to be broken, so I hope someday we will see something greater, but I agree, the PS2 is tops, to date.

The Ps2 is the highest selling Home console ever , But DS recently took it over as Highest selling Gaming platform ever.

Ps2 is one of the best platforms ever and I can see why most people would think it is. M major issue was the lack of 4 controller ports as standard. I used to hamer Smash bros , Mario kart and Halo 4 player with friends.

Even though the Ps2 had the most great games. I felt the small amount of Amazing games the Gamecube had were better. Metroid prime 1 and 2 , Windwaker , Smash bros Brawl , Mario Sunshine , F-Zero GX , Phantasy star online episode 1 and 2 , etc.

PS2 is right up there. But for Me the SNES , N64 , Gamecube are my three favorites!

Kingofwiiu thinks the GameCube was better than the PS2 and tries too downplay the PS2 sales with the DS.......
Big freakin surprise /s

There's no other console anywhere close. And that's saying something considering I had more PS2's fail on me than Xbox 360's.

I'm most excited for next gen to see SONY move on from the mess that is the PS3 and focus on making the PS4 more like the behemoth that was the PS2.

ps3 is a mess ?!
a console that have the highest rated exclusives this gen and the most awarded games
the best hardware and free online
is a mess ??!!

The only thing 'messy' about the PS3 was it's launch, since then it's gone from strength to strength. The fact that it has recently surpassed the 360 in lifetime sales (despite it's year head-start), is a testament to that.

ps2 had it All, no rehashing same games as it is now days.

It is. Not only is the library huge (the largest one I'd even dare to say), but it actually has a high a pretty damn good high quality game to shovelware ratio.

Those who didnt have 2 multiple Taps missed out on some great 6-8 player action in Sports/Wrestling games.

It was too bad we didn't do this in the early years of the PS2. But it was a good send off as we eventually moved on to newer systems. I personally got a PS3 in 2008 and bro a year earlier.

MultiConsoleGamer1356d ago

A high water mark in gaming history.

WeskerChildReborned1356d ago

I enjoyed PS2 games more than games this gen, don't know why.

PS4isKing_821356d ago

cause they were better than the games from this gen.

online passes, dlc, fps overload, japan game devs killing and butchering their once great franchises etc.

i pray next gen the industry corrects alot of the mistakes it made in this one.

HarryMasonHerpderp1356d ago (Edited 1356d ago )

@shonen_82

I fully agree with you.
Last gen was a complete juggernaut and I hope we get a gen like that again with the new consoles.
I don't think we will though because like you said we now have online passes,dlc (and not the good kind), too many fps shooters and Japan destroying their best franchises. I don't think there is any turning back now the men in suits have had a taste of our cash and how much we are willing to pay extra to play the games we love. I think it's only going to get worse.
The PS1-PS2 era was the golden age of games for me, I include the GameCube and N64 in that too.

RedDevils1356d ago

This gen, is too Online/Multiplayer focus, but forgot how important is the story mode/single mode. Hell I still enjoy the PS2 games more than any top game this gen

animegamingnerd1356d ago

agree in fact i am playing persona 3 right now on my PS2
