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

Posted on Friday, June 28 @ 15:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


10. Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec


Driving perfection. That's what a lot of racing fans would call the third entry in the Gran Turismo series. After establishing itself on the original PlayStation as a development powerhouse, Polyphony Digital had a lot of expectation to live up to when launching its first racer for the PS2. Much to gamers' delight, Polyphony not only matched expectations, it managed to exceed them. Racing purists look to GT3 as the gold standard, and with good reason. 



9. Jak II

Sure, the original Jak & Daxter is an absolute platforming marvel, but the bold new direction that Naughty Dog took the franchise in with the sequel is where the series truly shines. The studio has since gone on to create unparalleled cinematic experiences, and Jak II was the first real step in that direction. From incredible cutscenes to stellar writing and voice acting, the second chapter in Jak and Daxter's tale is an absolute must for Naughty Dog fans. But the studio didn't just innovate in storytelling and presentation, Jak II also brought open world gameplay to the series, taking a page out of Rockstar's book. It's an experience that simply can't be missed. 



8. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

How do you follow up a generation-defining experience like Grand Theft Auto III? You up the ante by taking gamers to the sunny streets of Vice City. With a new protagonist, a fresh new setting, and a cast of characters that actually feel like real people, Rockstar Games managed to prove that it can take the open-world formula and inject an interesting story full of personality. Others may have attempted to mimic the studio's formula, but Vice City proved there's nothing quite like the real thing.



7. Final Fantasy X

For the longest time I was a Nintendo fan through-and-through. Then I got a chance to play Final Fantasy X and that was the moment I knew I needed to start saving my allowance to buy a PS2. The game's opening CG cutscene followed by a overly-dramatic blitzball match had me eager to explore this world for myself. It was a visual marvel at the time, and the adherence to the classic turn-based JRPG gameplay was a huge win for fans of the prior entries on the PlayStation. Many regard this as the last amazing Final Fantasy title, and in many respects, I'm inclined to agree.



6. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4

Our reviews editor, Daniel Bischoff, has an unhealthy obsession with Persona 4, and I really can't blame him. While he fell head-over-heels for the Vita version, the PS2 original has all the charm of the handheld upgrade. Serving as part high school simulator part dungeon-crawler, Persona 4 is a unique role-playing blend that will have you hooked for nearly a hundred hours, if not more. It's got a great story, great characters, and so many options you'll have a hard time deciding what to do. I mean honestly, why concern yourself with real life when you can join a virtual drama club?
