With the launch of the A38s, Astro has clearly shown that they can rock our eardrums off even if we aren’t sitting in our living rooms.

Destiny Review
With Bungie's leap to next-generation platforms and interstellar space closer to home, I wonder if E.T. is out there somewhere.

While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

Hey guys, I've decided I'm going to start assembling a little collection of all the greatest games.

I want to start with the PS2, because well... it's got such an amazing library. I just started hunting down some of the must-haves, but I want to know which you all think I need to include in my library.

So please help me out letting me know which titles you think no PS2 library should be without.

Kinda hard to say, with all the HD collections coming out nowadays.

Dynasty Warriors made up a lot of my fondest childhood memories. Then there's Gauntlet Dark Legacy, Jak & Daxter, Ratchet $ Clank, ATV Offroad Fury, Final Fantasy...

I hear ya, but just pretend that HD collections don't exist Smile

I'd rather own the original PS2 copies anyway

Definitely agree with FF and the Jak series - honestly I like Jak & Daxter much more than Uncharted

I played ICO several years ago but never finished it. How does it compare to SotC?

I just picked up dark cloud for 3 bucks, and been enjoying it thoroughly, not a triple A title sure, but for 3 bucks you can hardly go wrong

Katamari games are a must and Dragon Quest VIII is a solid old school rpg with a nice artstyle

That's such a steal for $3. Even in Canadian money.

Man, everything good is getting named.

I absolutely loved Tekken games on the PS2, Tekken Tag was on a constant rotation.

Okami because it's amazing.

Persona's...considering the fact that I'm just barely picking them up and they're still amazing.

Red Faction 1 & 2 were both good.

All old shooters feel dated. Half-Life 2 possibly only exception.

The only ps2 games I still have are MGS3 and MGS2, I never had the heart to rid myself of them. I have the subsistence version of mgs3 so the behind the back camera makes it much more playable
