The Best PS2 Games of All Time

April 03, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 289

5. Final Fantasy 10 This was the first Final Fantasy title to launch on the PlayStation 2. Never before did we have a story-driven RPG with voice acting and stunning graphics. I'm happy that a Final Fantasy title was able to be the first to reach that milestone. Square Enix deserved it.

4. Grand Theft Auto 3 Rockstar reinvented the 'sandbox' genre with Grand Theft Auto 3, making a completely different game from the previous two Grand Theft Auto games. The most noticeable was obviously the game now being in 3D. The amount of liberating freedom you have in that game is amazing.

3. God of War God of War had excellent presentation and was one of the most polished PlayStation 2 games to ever release. By polish I mean few bugs(which was important considering the PlayStation 2 didn't make use of 'patches' much like PC games do) and smooth gameplay. The sequels were just as good but the original game is what opened the doors for those games. It has unique brain-bending puzzles and a combat system that is terrific, allowing you to do button mash mini games to give a final executing blow to your foes. This one was a favorite of mine.

2. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty This was the first Metal Gear game to appear on the PlayStation 2 and it was an instant classic. Hideo Kojima improved a lot of aspects from Metal Gear Solid including the ability to aim in an over-the-shoulder viewpoint behind Snake. Hideo said this was a tough decision because the game would no longer be the traditional Metal Gear Solid birds eye view type of gameplay. It was for the better though.

1. Shadow of the Colossus After it's success, the devs who made Ico decided to go big. Literally. Shadow of the Colossus features gameplay that no other game could compare with. Fighting giant colossi. The player got a satisfying sense of accomplishment after taking down one of these huge beasts. The variation between the different Colossus was great with each one requiring a different strategy to take it down. They can even be considered as puzzles to be honest. The game has a touching story with an ending that leaves no stones unturned.

Conclusion There you have it. My pick of the top PlayStation 2 games to ever release. The console had a great run and many of my most memorable gaming experiences were with PlayStation 2 games. The PlayStation 2 was also my last console, as I have now moved on to being full time PC gamer.

I hope you enjoyed list of the top 5 Playstation 2 games to ever release.
