Considering this is a machine that came out in 2000, it's amazing the level of detail in God of War 2 and Resident Evil 4.

Amazing machine.

And to think, it was the least powerful of the 3 gaming machines of that gen. Oddly, the Gamecube was the most powerful, there just weren't enough good games made for it.

PS2 has so many good games I missed out on.

I missed out on a lot myself but started buying the best of them in the last year or so. Trust me when I say that the gems are still worth playing. I have Okami, Persona, Onimusha, etc. It's nice to have them in the collection.
Gamecube had a lot of great games but not quite as many.

Shadow of the colossus , GOW2 and other titles proves that the PS2 is a legendary machine.

The Ps2 was the peak of gaming. It will never be forgotten. I think Ps4 is a reincarnation of Ps2 :3

The PS4 is actually the PS2-2nd.

The name was just shortened so it'd be easier to say.
