I saw a post talking about worst games. :) Thought I would start one which lists best PS2 games. Pls feel free to add other games but mention the hardware.

Definitely Gran Turismo 4, especially with the Logitech Driving Force Pro wheel.

Katamari Damacy is great fun, too, even if it is incredibly strange.

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. A great tactical RPG. No other system has ever come close to this exclusive PS2 title.

I'd narrow it down to two- God of War(1 or 2) and Grand Theft Auto(Vice City, 3, San Andreas- whichever). For the longest time GTA was, in a sence, what Halo was for the Xbox... You couldn't own a PS2 and not have a GTA game. God of War 2 has the best graphics that have graced the PS2 and one of the best stories.

If you have a HDTV, make use you get component cables. Several PS2 games support 480p or 1080i and even those that don't look pretty good via a component connection. If your connected to your HDTV via the Red, White, Yellow cables, that's composite and that's bad.

PS 2 Games I loved
Metal Gear Solid 1, 2 and 3: I especially liked 3 as it had the most comprehensible story and the best boss fights.
ICO: ICO is a fantastic game, I enjoyed every moment and was sorry to see it end, it's must have
Gran Tursimo 4. The game looks pretty ok in 1080i and it's the best racer on the PS2
Ace Combat 4 or 5: Fun arcade style play and great graphics.
Tourist Trophy: A motorcycle racer from the creators of Gran Turismo. It's the best bike racer on the PS2, but the learning curve is fairly steep.
Zone of the Enders 1or 2: ZoE 2 is getting hard to find, but it's better than 1. ZoE is the best mech game on the PS2, I hated the Armored Core games.
Resident Evil 4: Far and away, the best RE game, scary and fun.

best ps2 games hmm...

Shadow of the Colossus
Metal Gear Solid 3
Silent Hill 2

Those are 3 of the best games i've ever played.

I haven't played enough PS2 RPG's to be able to include any on this list.

GTA and God of War are both not that great in my opinion. (and halo is horrible, so your analogy doesn't work for me)

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 9, 2008 7:36:17 PM PDT
God of War 1 and 2
Final Fantasy XII (X and X-2 are great too)
Star Wars Star Fighter
Metal Gear 2 and 3
Ratchet and Clank 1,2,3 and Deadlock
GTA:San Andreas ( I like it better than GTA:4)
Red Faction (great FPS)
Half Life (great port of the PC original)
Killzone (yes, I like it)
War of the Monsters!!!! (I pray they make a sequel with online gaming)

R-Type Final with 100 ships to unlock.

My wife & I constantly play Gauntlet! Star Wars Battlefront is addictive, as well as Road Trip Everywhere 2012. Of course War of the Monsters is a must (and the Godzilla games too). There are several Guncon games- Time Crisis and Dino Stalker if you like shooting guns. Simpson's Road Rage is great. My daughter loves Dora & Diego and Finding Nemo. Finally- Tom & Jerry- War of the Whiskers is fun. If you find them - Portal Runner was interesting, and Crash: The Wrath of Cortex consumed a week of our lives :)

Personally I couldn't stand Metal Gear Solid 3 or Shadow of the Colossus!

The Playstation 2 has of course had a ton of great games, but off the top of my head I'd probably have to say some of my very favorites are:

-Final Fantasy 10
-Shadow of Destiny
-Tome Raider: Legend (actually I played through this on PC and 360, but I've seen the PS2 version running and it seems to look and play fantastic too)
-Resident Evil 4
-the Katamari Damacy games

Best PS2 Games:

GTA San Andreas
God of War 1 and 2
Odin Sphere
Radiata Stories
Soul Calibur II/III
Valkyrie Profile II
Disgaea 2 (haven't played 1)
Tomb Raider: Legend

I have played these, but I did not think the following games warrant the best PS2 games:
Final Fantasy X
R Type Final
Twisted Metal Black
Shadow of the Colossus
Tekken 5

The jury is still out on:
Bully

Sorry, did not play any of the Metal Gears!!!

I agree with Strider, R-Type final, my favorite shmup.

I noticed you just listed Jack and Daxter 1...does that mean you don't like the sequels? That's the case with me. I loved the first one, thought it played like the Rare N64 games, only with way better graphics. I was really looking forward to the sequel, but then they changed the gameplay, added shooter elements, and made it this boring (to me) post-apocalyptic setting everything uses. I haven't liked ANY of the sequels. Now if they did a TRUE sequel to the first game on the PS3, that was just a straight, great looking/playing 3D platformer, that would be awesome!
(EDIT: I don't like the Rachet and Clank games either, which IMO are basically straight shooters, not platformers at all even though everyone describes them as platformers...wish someone still made great 3D platformers AND 2D platformers. Other than Super Mario Galaxy and Psychonaughts there hasn't been much of anything good since Jak 1.)

I say you can't beat Ratchet and Clank 1, 2, & 3 (Size Matters sucked on PS2).
Honorable Mentions:
Soul Reaver 2,Timesplitters series,Shadow of the Collosus,Tomb Raider Anniversary,and MGS series.

Gradius V deserves a mention, at least. Gran Turismo 4 is great too. But yeah, Gradius is a must-play, especially considering how underplayed it is.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 22, 2008 8:26:38 PM PDT
The Ratchet and Clank games, and the Dark Cloud games for sure. There were a lot of great ones though. And Kingdom Hearts 2.
