JunkExplorer: PlayStation 2, the first successful console of this century as most outstanding and memorable gaming hardware ever with awesome, amazing and exclusive games. Here are the 10 most successful game titles of PS2.
Not a CoD in sight, was so much better back then.Seeing this list is kinda making me hate the 7th gen a bit now, wth happened? Hopefully 8th gen fixes this.
Everyone is bashing Call of Duty but it still sells millions and millions of copies. I enjoy COD. Did not get Ghosts though. Black Ops II multiplayer Free for All is still great fun. Looking forward to Sledgehammers COD 2014.
"Everyone is bashing Call of Duty but it still sells millions and millions of copies." There's no accounting for taste.
Call of Duty still sells because it's still the dominant shooter in its genre. Games that are tried and true, and don't steer too far from their predecessors are notorious for their ongoing success through generations. Since Modern Warfare, not a whole lot has changed in gameplay. Since Gran Turismo, not a whole lot has changed in gameplay. Same for Mario, Grand Theft Auto, Madden, FIFA and any other game that developers crank out. The difference between these games and other games is that the developers for these games just happened to find the one formula that makes their franchise popular and applied it to the core of every future title in the series. It's for this very reason that you don't see many titles stray way out from their breakout game and when they do, they aren't very well received. Gamers cry for innovation, but often bash uniqueness. Doesn't make sense sometimes.
Well in generation 6 you had people like bashing GTA just as now you see people bashing COD. You just didn't here it back then online as much with out collaborative news sites.
I agree. Back then games weren't getting made just to make a quick buck. They were coming up with new ideas. I loved the variety on the PS2, it was perfect.
#1 ain't surprising.
I thought it would been FFX for most sold on PS2
an rpg game is never going to beat an shooters or racer in terms of sales. i hate that but rpg doesnt hit the mainstream like shooters and racers do.
I cannot access the page, nor can I access the other page of the article Dadag has posted up.
Let me help you out then. 10. God of War - 4.61 million 9. Kingdom Hearts - 4.78 million 8. FFXII - 5.2 million 7. FFX 6.6 million 6. MGS2 - 7 million 5. GTA 3 - 7.9 million 4. GTA Vice City - 9.61 million 3. Gran Turismo 4 - 11.73 million 2. GT3 A-Spec - 14.89 million 1. GTA San Andreas - 17.33 million Gotta love it when someone has nothing to write about so they go to VGChartz and look up sales numbers to make an "article" about, even if the games are 10 years old or more.
I'm amazed that FFXII sold so well. Also that the first KH and GoW sold more than their better sequels.
Talk about rough... my PS2 never touched any of those games.
@Jeebus in my opinion only kingdom hearts 2 and god of war 2 were better in almost every aspect. other sequels/ prequels weren't better than the first of both games. @the Division dude ... wow are you kidding ?
Nice to see a few RPG's in that list.
