I didn't like the "big console" version of Episode 3 at all. I enjoyed The Bouncer quite a bit back when that came out though. IMO that's FAR from the worst Square's done. Not sure if I'd like it now or not, but I didn't regret buying it.

I'd have to say God of War II is the best the PS2 had to offer. Just about everything else mentioned here is great, too, though. It's nice to hear a mention of Zone of the Enders 2 (I agree, best mech game on the PS2... My copy got stolen while loaning it to my brother and I'm still upset about it, especially since it's so rare now). There's also nothing else quite like Shadow of the Colossus.

GoWII really pushed the hardware to its limits. It's by far the best looking while still being the smoothest playing game on the PS2. If you squint real hard, it almost looks like a first generation 360 game. It's by far my favorite action game to date.

All my friends loved Kamari Damacy, which is maybe why I hated it. I'm really put off by the whole quirky oddball Japanese thing.

I would probably have to say that Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within ranks highest on my list. The first Prince Of Persia for the PS2 felt too much like a cartoon, and in terms of story, The Two Thrones felt like a repeat of Sands Of Time.

All the games in the series for PS2 were great though, as were Okami, and Tekken 5. Unfortunately I can't voice my opinion of God Of War (1 or 2) because I haven't played either one.

RESIDENT EVIL 4 Never a dull moment in that game, and it's long as hell.

WolfPup says:
Yep, Resident Evil 4 is just plain great. I think most people will like it, unless you're REALLY squeamish or just don't like a more thoughtful action game (both of which are fine!)

I really don't like gross movies or the like, but the Resident Evil games have never crossed that line for me. And I love the sort of adventure game they are.

The one thing about 4 I disagree about with all the reviews is the control scheme. To me it feels pretty much the same as the previous games. It's been evolved, but it's not a complete departure-which is a good thing to me. But eveyone acts like it's completely different.

What's amazing is all the times Capcom has had an almost finished Resident Evil game, and then completely trashed it and started over. I mean who wants to bet the earlier versions of Resident Evil 2 or 4 would STILL have been better than most games? :D

I sure hope they can keep up the quality indefinitely-and that sales always reflect that quality! They deserve success!

The Kingdom Hearts games (how come no one mentions those?) and Okami.

Rogue Galaxy - an amazing RPG, I loved it. Do yourself a favor and get a guidebook.

To D. Baretta....The bouncer? That was literally one of the worst games I've ever played!! So disappointing.

WolfPup says:
It wouldn't be on my "best of" list, but I liked The Bouncer. That's...I've probably played more games worse than it than better.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 21, 2009 5:52:00 PM PST
The bouncer was and is, one of the most terrible games in the history of PS2, the game that you beat in like one hour and a half and after the game was complete the creators "made" this "arrangement" that if you finish the game 7, 10, 12 times you have the chance to play with new characters. It's without a doubt one of the worst mistakes of square, and that brand makes great games, but that game sucked without a doubt. Maybe you like it a lot because before that you had like an atari 2600. But paying 50 bucks for a game that the next you'll dump it on the shelf, well, c'mon, that game it's way off the best game, way off.

WolfPup says:
I don't think The Bouncer is anywhere near the worst game Square's made. I'd put it in the top half. And game length doesn't correlate with quality. Just off the top of my head, that DS Final Fantasy RTS and the DS Mana games are far, far worse.

For myself, my favorite games are
The Simpsons driving games (i.e. Road Rage),
StarWars: Battle Front,
Champions of Norrath,
Lego StarWars series
and Hunter Wayward: The Reckoning,
Ratchet and Clank: Deadlocked.

My fiancee says:
Kingdom Hearts series (I have to agree)
He says, "I'm rather fond of the gummy ship creation. More so in 2 than the first."

I do wish that the console games, particularly Playstation, had come out with more 2-player games or party games.
