Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

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
