The PlayStation 2 is arguably the greatest console ever made. If not the greatest, it's still the best selling so it must have done something right - almost everyone has one.
To pay tribute to this, we felt the time was right for us to compile a list of what we think the best games from the PlayStation 2 era are. But we don't want to be greedy and hog this all to ourselves, we want all of you guys in the community to contribute to this too.
In order to make this comprehensive list, we want each of you to tell us your five most cherished games. We don't want you to just give us a clichÃ© list of what you think the best five should be. No, we want the five that enabled you to have the best experience on your PS2, the the five you think were most enjoyed by everyone else; gaming isn't all about review scores and hype.
Alongside each game, we also want you to write a paragraph or two explaining why the game you've chosen means so much to you - there's bound to be a story attached to it. When we post the finalised list up, your username will be referenced as the person who picked the game, and your short story/experience will appear alongside it. Because of this, please try not to nominate games someone else has. Well, unless you think the experience you had with it trumps someone else's.
So, in short:
- We're compiling a list of the greatest PS2 games of all time
- We want you to nominate FIVE PS2 games that had the greatest impact on your gaming lives
- Alongside each game, please write a paragraph or two summarising why this game made such an impact
- Only choose one game per franchise
- Try not to nominate a game that's already been mentioned, unless you really feel you have to
- Attach your nominations to this thread/article
We hope you have fun!
