The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

GameRevolution's Top 25 PS2 Games Of All Time (Full List)

Posted on Friday, June 28 @ 15:00:00 PST by Alex_Osborn
For many, the question as to which console is the greatest of all time has an easy, straightforward, and inarguable answer: the PlayStation 2. To honor Sony's glorious gaming machine that followed up the original PlayStation, we here at GameRevolution decided to put our heads together and craft a list that compiles the greatest experiences that the platform has to offer.

While we easily could have stretched this list out to over fifty titles, we wanted to keep it condensed and relatively digestible. As such, there are bound to be a few titles you absolutely adore that didn't make the cut, and that's what the comments section is for. Alright, no more rambling, let's get right into it.



25. Katamari Damacy

The PlayStation 2 is home to a wide array of different concepts, art styles, and genres, andKatamari Damacyis basically the epitome of that fact. This Japanese third-person puzzle game has players rolling around a magical ball that picks up objects from the world, growing as it moves along. The goal is to create masses large enough to be stars in an effort to repopulate the sky with the glowing objects because the King of All Cosmos accidentally destroyed them. It's totally wacky and out there, but at the same time extremely charming. If you're looking for an experience like none other, Katamari Damacyis an absolute must if you've got a PS2.



24. SSX Tricky

Fans of snowboarding games should be incredibly familiar withSSX Tricky, the second game in Electronic Arts' sports action series. While the original was fantastic in its own right, the franchise really hit its stride in the followup. With additions like a rival system and Uber moves,SSX Trickybrought some much needed personality to the genre. It's easily one of the best sports games on the platform, and for that reason should not be missed.



23. Dark Cloud 2

Level-5, the studio that would one day go on to make role-playing gems likeNi No Kuni,had a few noteworthy offerings on the PlayStation 2, namely theDark Cloudseries. The first game was incredibly unique and blended traditional action role-playing with a deep and engaging town-building element. The second, however, took it a step further and brought to the franchise a memorable cast of characters, an intriguing story, and a gorgeous cel-shaded art design.



22. Guitar Hero II

Love it or hate it, theGuitar Herofranchise spearheaded a phenomenon that took the gaming world by storm, andGuitar Hero IIis where the series really hit its stride, reaching far beyond just the core gaming crowd. The music-rhythm genre started to take on a life of its own, and Activision proceeded to milk every ounce of juice it could from the concept. But before it became a yearly cash-grab,Guitar Herowas something special and wholly unique, and for that it deserves a nod.



21. Final Fantasy XII

Remember whenFinal Fantasygames used to be good? WhileFFXIIhas proven to be a polarizing title among JRPG enthusiasts, it still bears the markings of a great game, and is believed to be by many the last solid effort by Square Enix. Following hot off the heels of the prior entry, which was an MMO,Final Fantasy XIIabandoned the traditional turn-based battle system for something a bit more dynamic, akin to howFFXIoperated. It was a bold step forward for the single-player games in the series, and yielded an experience that felt entirely unique.
