GamingFront.net give gamers their Top 5 PS2 Games List.
Whats your favorite PS2 game? In my opinion GTA SA such a huge and cool world.
The awesome thing about the PS2 is that even a "Top 25" list would leave out a lot of great titles.
Agree Gwave, much like the Snes and PS1, there are just so many excellent games from many genres. I love my PS2.
SOTC/ICO GOW MGS GT FF Okami RE Yakuza Beyond good & Evil DMC R&C J&D ... OMG so many great Games it is hard to choose only 5!
Such a great console RIP PS2 I will always remember you when I open my closet.
is #1 IMO.
A similar list of Ps3 games would leave out great games!
I totally agree with that list. I haven't played a Final Fantasy game before, so I can't really speak on FFX, but I've heard nothing but good things about that game, so I wasn't surprised to see it in the Top 5. GTA3 for me wasn't my favorite, but I guess it was included in the Top 5 because it's the GTA game that really started the GTA revolution and I can agree with that, but San Andreas is still my favorite GTA game to this day. My Top 5 PS2 game would go in this order: 1.Shadow of the Colossus 2.God of War 2 3.Metal Gear Solid 3 4.GTA:San Andreas 5. ICO
I can't do top5, but I can do top10. Shadow of the Colossus Silent Hill 2 Okami Kingdom Hearts Ico Disgaea Digital Devil Saga Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne Odin Sphere Gitaroo Man
1. SOTC 2. GOW - The 1st one is still the best 3. MGS3 4. FFX 5. GTA : VC
Final Fantasy X is on the list, which means this article is already a failure. Come on, XII is better in every conceivable way, the story in X is like an episode of Smallville or some other overly romanticised teenage derived drivel with some of the worst voice acting in videogame history. The combat system was extremely poor to boot. And since when is GTAIII better than either VC or SA? God of War II certainly gets the nod, as does SOTC. But ICO deserves a slot methinks. And for god's sake get FFX out of there.
SotC vs ICO That's a tough call.
SotC over Ico...but only for the whole "fun factor" thing. They are both so incredible!
I think GTA: San Andreas was better than 3. Even vice city was.
the ps2 gta games omg they were AAA gta 4 wasn't as good
Final Fantasy X had the greatest story i've ever experienced in a video game, the only games i can think that could come close would be Okami or Zelda:OoT
Best story has to go to the God of War series.
I got nothing against God of War but personally i like stories which are original rather than ones which are just adding a twist to an existing one Since knowing the characters (the Gods at least) beforehand kinda killed it for me since I came to game having pre-defined personalities of them and when they tried to switch it up like make Zeus seem evil and the god of war 'seem' like the hero it just seemed weak While in FFX it was a whole new universe which made it a lot more interesting and the CGI worked better in FF than GoW
The story and mythology in the God of War series is seriously enthralling. Amazing series of games.
good luck finding the top 5 games on psp, its impossible, however there are many games missing on that list such as RE4, gta vice city, silent hill 2 etc.
Silent Hill 2 seriously? It was a good game don't get me wrong. No way was it a Top 5 game.
GTA SA is the best.
5. Bully 4. God Of War II 3. Ico 2. Resident Evil 4 1. MGS3: Snake Eater.
top 5 Ps2 isn't enough for ps2 games .
PS2 had tons of great games.
Twisted Metal Black and Devil May Cry.
It should really be at least top 20 games. Top 5 doesnt even scratch the surface...makes it difficult to really pick out the good games. On the number 1 spot I would say either GoW2, MGS3, or GTASA. Silent Hill is an amazing game...but it doesnt belong on that list...there's thousands upon thousands of games...im sure they could've done a teeny bit better. But after all, this is just an opinion...so doesnt matter.
Timesplitters 2 anyone?
1. Final Fantasy X 2. MGS3 3. Final Fantasy XII 4. GTA San Andreas 5. God of War 2 God of War 2 is not top because whilst it is the pinnacle of PS2 gaming, I found it had a somewhat poor story and the gameplay got a little button mashy at times. But make no mistake its still a 9.5+/10 game.
Overall, good list. Although I'd put Prince of Persia: Sands of Time in place of FFX... but that's just because I personally don't like JRPGs that much.
Games that should be in top w/e # PS2 games - Grandia 2 - Timesplitters 2 - Ratchet and Clank (pick one) - Rogue Galaxy - Beyond Good & Evil - Kill.Switch (one of the most underrated shooters ever, maybe the most underrated PS2 shooter) I woulda said Final Fantasy X but they listed it... RPGs are amazing and fu*ing epic so emphasis on Rogue Galaxy and def Grandia 2 (one of my fav rpgs ever) on my list
I have played all except for that gta game.
