Welp guys all y'all know how i feel about this baby. It is my favorite console EVER! The gaming library is the only that can compete with the SNES. This console gave us some kickass and memorable games. The system brings nostalgia to pretty much all the 90s babies!

Great list of games, except Crash Tag Team Racing was terrible, most definitely the worst in the Crash Bandicoot racing series. You should have posted Crash Nitro Kart (2003) on there which was a fun game overall with great track designs & items. Not as good as Crash Team Racing (1999) for the PS1 which was the best Crash racing game in the series, but Nitro Kart for the PS2 was still the 2nd best of all.

The PS2 (along with the PC, PSP, and Xbox) were home to my favorite GTA games of all time. Including San Andreas, but that's already mentioned.

PS2 is probably what turned me into a "core gamer", as they call it. I started buying really niche games that I don't think most people here have even heard of.

Out of the ones in the OP though, I loved Dragon Ball Z Budokai series. That was still some of the must fun I've had in fighting games! I also had WWE Smackdown Vs. Raw 2005. The game had a really fun single-player mode.

I did own The PS2 console but it was the notebook version, the small one.

Look at how large and diverse the PS2's game library is compared to the PS4's. The PS4's games come from different genres too, but only the dudebro shooters are in the mainstream.

I used to dislike waiting for my brother and earliest friend to finish competing in Budokai, but looking back, the memory is amazing. Budokai's soundtrack is so nostalgic. Haha When I got the PS2, I kept getting this "Your late to the party vibe." Def Jam Fight For NY is G.O.A.T of the series and I doubt its making a comeback. I really don't want to play as these new rappers.

Especially with GTA V being their favorite game since it was released in 2013 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. But those games were more popular with the PS4.

Ouch, that must've hurt.

The system introduced me to the DMC series. I heard awful things about DMC2, which I didn't play, but DMC and DMC3 (and DMC4 for the Xbox 360) were amazing!.

Another game series I loved the Need for Speed games. I loved the chase! I remember taking turns with my brother and my friends to finish a lot of the missions. The game was hard!

Underground 2 was my favorite Need for Speed game of all time, but I had it for the XBOX. Naw bruh, that game was easy! Just like any other racing game was easy for me  ;D

Underground 2 did have its challenges but I unlocked everything on there and had so much fun! I killed everybody on multiplayer mode as usual.

It's weird how I didn't have any of these except when I played one over at my friend's house (I think it was the first Sly Cooper). Those exclusives were off the charts.

I wish Sony would have made more Crash and Spyro games considering there wasn't many on the PS2 for some reason.

It was just a small console that it was easy to trip over.
