The Graying of the PS2: Saying Good Bye to A True Legend

In an article by The long and prosporous life of the PS2 is remembered. They also recap some of the greatest games to graze the system as of late and did not fail to mention it may have a couple more hits left in it.

"Just because your PS2 seems to be a little gray at the temples and not quite as sexy as that glossy PS3, that doesn't mean it is time to put it out to pasture. In fact, some of the best games for a system come at the tail end of its lifecycle. Age has its privileges."

Reading this article almost brought a tear to my eye. I remember the first day I brought that sucker home. My first comment was....

"OMFG... Soul Calibur plays better on my dreamcast!!!"

Here we are 7 years later and it has been one of the best console experiences I have yet to have. PS2 deffly one for the record books.

Isn't PS2 still outselling PS3? And 360? And heck, maybe even Wii? I wouldn't call that dead.

yea but God of war 2 is probably the last good game for that system...

The PS2 was indeed a great system. I remember trying to figure out which "next-gen" system to ask my parents for for Christmas. I also remember my dad being on a "business trip" on launch day. My mom and dad took turns waiting in line at Walmart for it. I played Tekken Tag Tournament and Madden 01 too much to realize that it was coming under pressure from the media at the time. Possibly the greatest console of all time, and it's still kicking (God of War 2 FTW).

Hell, it also pushed the DVD format. I can't say that I miss the old VHS tapes.
