Hereby enclosed is a list of PlayStation 2 games, the top 20 of all time.
Im not sure we will see sales this high for individual games again when you consider the number of consoles now available.
MGS2 sold 7 million despite coming out 2001 when the PS2 only had around 10 million units. Now granted probably 30% of those sales came when the PS2 install base came out but I remember having a hard time finding this game in like 2003 or 2004. MGS4 will do as good as MGS2 this generation. The reason MGS3 didn't do well is because it was an upgrade of MGS2 from a tech standpoint. MGS1 a showcase for the PS1, MGS2 a showcase for the PS2, and MGS4 will be a showcase for the PS3.
this looks like a wikipedia job to me. Pes ought to be on that list...japan and europe/other buy that game by the shedloads even if its broken...
for america fans:pes is like the madden for the rest of the world...
and come to think of it...maybe fifa or something...
but if u guys remember a game called "psi-ops mindgate conspiracy" you would be wondering how it didn't made the list, even though it didn't sold a lot but dam.
so basically a lot of GTA, GT, FF and Madden nice to see DQ8 in there- that was an excellent game
This is a list of the top selling PS2 games, right?
I don't see SoTC there which instantly makes this list garbage.
It's not a list of the Top 20 quality games, it's a list of the top 20 sold.
Hmm not much variety in the list but also some of my fave games are mentioned.... GTA: Vice City is by far the best so far... nice to see DQ8 on the list....
only good game there is gta series rest are crap
lol your one of those kids who begged mommy for a xbox and couldn't afford a PS2 afterwards- and eneded up thinking that it was better (despite the PS2 having upwards of 500 exclusive games, and the xbox having very little) your an ignorant little kid, but don't worry- im sure mommy has a trust fund for you
I think the trust found he got...could only buy him a 360 also...dats why he hates the PS3..still can't afford a Sony console...
I think thats unfair.
Gran Turismo, that is undeniably one of the best racing games ever.
Metal Gear, another of those greats.
Final Fantasy, I don't like it, but it's undeniably a good game.
MGS3 dint do well becoz it was not the story of snake which fan really liked and loved...Snake is returning in MGS4 after nearly 7 years ....cant wait
And MGS2 was about Snake???
1. er erm
2. hmm let me think...
Wow, Jak and Daxter sold a lot on the PS2 (hint hint Naughty Dog! I Want Jak 4!)
Haha, it seems my "big 3" games for the PS3 that I gonna get are the top 3 series of the PS2...GTA4, GT5, and MGS4. History repeats itself!
Is this sales worldwide or only America?
Thank God! I was getting worried that no one would post a "Top 20 PS2 Games Of All Time / You Should Play" list this week...
Just goes to show PS3's biggest gun has been muzzled by MS. GTA4 is the big deal, NOT MGS4, get it through your brains, the numbers do not lie. Ninja Gaiden 2 will be stealing enough of MGS4's thunder.
