Poll: What's Your Favorite PlayStation 2 Game of All Time?

image

The PS2 era is officially over, but these titles will live on forever.

As we reported yesterday, Sony has ceased worldwide production of the PlayStation 2, officially ending the console's 12-year lifespan. But while this may be a sad event for gamers, the millions of PS2s in homes around the world will continue to bring enjoyment to their owners for many years to come. With that in mind, it seems appropriate to take a look back at the most popular PS2 games and let you all weigh in on which ones were the very best.

As you might imagine, we couldn't possibly include every PS2 game in the list -- in fact, it's not even close. However, we've gathered what we believe to be the cream of the crop. If your all-time favorite title doesn't appear as an option, feel free to make your choice known in the comments section.

Could have put a bit more effort into that list. No Persona 4? No Tales games? Ah well, voted for Katamari but of the list Jak II would have been my next choice.

Well you didn't have an option for The Godfather so it was a toss up between San Andreas and Burnout 3.

Where is Persona 4 and Nocturne? I also see no Killer 7 on that list! Cream of the crop my foot!

OT: Kingdom Hearts II, easily one of the finest gaming experiences of my life! It took everything from the original and made it twice as good! I can't wait to play it again if they make a HD version of it!

San Andreas would be the next choice, so many hours of untold carnage!

Star Wars Battlefront II.

So much fun was had.

Battlefront wasn't an exclusive, so I went with Bully.

Yeah, I'd put Persona 3, Xenosaga 3, or Ar Tonelico 2.. none of which are represented by that list.

Yeah the list should include waaaaaaaaaaaay more. I voted Resi 4 but I feel that Metal Gear Solid 3 is missing :\ and the most fun I had was shamefully Sonic Heroes

Persona 3 FES with runner up Odin sphere. Neither are on the list.

Zone of the Enders: 2nd Runner

Another person annoyed by the lack of Shin Megami Tensei games and spin offs.

I'm still...in a dream

SNAKE EATER!

Some worthy choices there, but I couldn't choose anything other than Metal Gear Solid 3 as soon as I saw it.

Since Time Splitters 2 wasn't on there I had to choose Kingdom Hearts II.

However it's a really fucking hard choice since the PS2 holds so many of my favorite games on such an equal level, I can't possibly just choose one.

Was a tough decision between Kingdom Hearts, Okami, and Vice City. Vice City won out for having the most fun held within that I've had in a long time with my friends. Only Just Cause 2 has come close to the amount of hilarity we got into.

Time to be in the minority! I voted for Final Fantasy XII, although I play the International Edition, but it is still my favorite Final Fantasy game ever. Although it was tough for me to choose as I've been playing through Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and that game has been fun. Also, stinks since most of my PS2 games are imports so they aren't necessarily represented on the list. :/

Where is Persona 4!? Whaaaaaaaaaa---?!

Escapist, I am disappoint.

I would of like to see Disgaea 1 and 2 on the list. I voted for Kingdom Hearts 2 though.

Off the top of my head it was immediately Final Fantasy X. Played that game through so many times, even worked on a complete sphere grid challenge for a while, and just had a wonderful experience with that game. Even played it last year when I gave up waiting for a PS3 HD remastered version. FFXII and God of War were also in my top games for PS2 but I went with my gut.

Such a grand system, RIP PS2.

DVS BSTrD:
Battlefront wasn't an exclusive, so I went with Bully.

Neither was Resident Evil 4 (GameCube first) but it's included anyway.

Mr Cwtchy:
Star Wars Battlefront II.

So much fun was had.

So much this.

Personally though, I've got way too many favourites just to put down one (so many memories...)
I mean, let's see; we got Armored Core 2 & 3
Starwars Battlefront 1 & 2
Sonic Riders + Zero Gravity (I liked them, ok?)
Metal Slug 3
Devil May Cry 3
Midnight Club 1 & 2
And then Gauntlet: Dark Legacy

They might not be the best games, but when I look back at them atop my shelves, I think "Good times... gooood times...".

Final Fantasy X (International with dark aeons) by a long shot. Although Disgaea would have been my first choice. Sooo many hours pumped into that game.

Although I did love me some Blitzball..

..I know I am weird

I went with Shadow of the Colossus due to the disgraceful lack of Persona 4. For shame.

Can't say I saw any Dark Cloud on the list, so went with Dragonquest: Journey of the Cursed King, I love this game, so much. Beaten it so many times, and 100% it several times as well. <3

Was Susan not around for this? Why is there no persona on there?!

No Disgaea or NISA titles? No Persona titles? Guess i'm going with Snake Eater then.

because of a lack of Dark Cloud, i voted for San Andreas. Sorry, Metal Gear Fans, i didn't play MGS3 until it was re-released on Xbox last year, but had i played it back then i would have voted for it here.

Doesn't seem to be on the list. The Bouncer.

Ar Tonellico 2 or Persona 3. Tz tz tz, that list is seriously lacking.

No Persona or Disgaea, so I went with FF X. Any of the three would fit as my favorite ps2 game.

Out of that list, it definitely had to be Final Fantasy X. So much fun to play.

I too would like to see the inclusion of some Shin Megami Tensei games. My pick would probably be Nocturne :)

Almost none of my fav games were on that list...

Anyways, I voted R&C 3 since it was the game I enjoyed the most on that list.

In terms of the amount of fun that I had with any one single game on the PS2 however, it would probabl be Star Wars Battlefront 1 or 2.

Excuse me? Persona 4? I mean, Silent Hill 4 is there....

That's a pretty limited list. No Persona? No Shadow Hearts? No Z.O.E. 2?

Actually, where's Devil May Cry? How did you make a best-of PS2 list and not include even one DMC game?

With the lack of Wild Arms 3, I voted Jak and Daxter: The precursor Legacy.
