Top 10 PS2 games - vote now!

Post by NickThorpe » Tue Jan 15, 2019 2:32 pm

Hello everyone, it's been ages since we've done any democracy around here, so let's do some now! We want to know your top ten PlayStation 2 games. As normal, choose any ten PS2 games you like (but it has to be a full ten), ranking them in order of preference (10 points for your favourite, down to 1 point for the last entry on your list).

We'll be featuring the results in Retro Gamer issue 191, and any comments that you make about your favourites in here may also be included.

10pts - Persona 3 FES
9pts - Yakuza 2
8pts - Odin Sphere
7pts - Grand Theft Auto San Andreas
6pts - Soulcalibur III
5pts - Tekken 5
4pts - Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria
3pts - Outrun 2006 Coast 2 Coast
2pts - Enthusia Professional Racing

Could have easily been a top 20 in all honesty. Far, far too difficult a choice.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

7 - Psychonauts (Such an amazing game that seemed to come out at the worst time possible, only issue is its a tad bit hard)
6 - Resident Evil Code Veronica X
5 - Brian Lara cricket 2007
4 - Outrun 2006
3 - Topspin

10 - fire pro wrestling returns (can't play it for toffee but use it to sim ..... a LOT)

9 - gta san andreas (simply the best gta game on the machine, even though i actually bought a PS2 in the first place because of vice city)

8 - killzone (never cared about shooters until this came along, played the demo of timesplitters 2 and was rubbish, but KZ is bloody great)

7 - smackdown here comes the pain (nice loose engine, controls are fantastic and having constant triple tag team matches with characters I GENUINELY HATE and beating them up was fun as hell)

6 - lego star wars (it's lego, it's star wars, it's lego star wars! almost completely 100% it too, LSW2 is just as brilliant)

5 - world snooker championship 2005 (oh man the hours i poured into this and was "technically" good at it, no wait i was actually good at it)

4 - fifa 07 (again mostly used for simming but i actually enjoyed playing a FIFA game)

3 - burnout 3 takedown (hours and hours of vehicular mayhem, actually liked the crashing sections)

2 - tomb raider legend (the first game of the series i actually cared about, bought it and traded it, then bought it again ..... i've even managed to finish the FIRST LEVEL!)

1 - cart fury (never knew about this fabulous racer until i saw it in the arcade down in ayr scotland, and loved every bonkers second of it, realised it was on the PS2 and bought it off amazon)

honorables

black
simpsons hit and run
gun
bully
smackdown vs raw
lego batman
pro evolution soccer 3
motorstorm
conflict global storm
world pool championship 2004
