With the launch, there's a wonderful nostalgia filling the air again, so much so that we are looking back, lovingly, at the best PS2 games of all time. From this little lot, it's incredibly easy to see why it's still classed as one of the best consoles of all time. Not only did it boast a rather enviable library of games, but it also arrived as one of the most affordable DVD players at the time.
Because of that the PS2 continued to sell well beyond the arrival of the PS3, and was actually only discontinued in 2012, some 12 years after its initial launch. It saw off challenges from plenty of rival formats - including the and - and laid the foundations for. It also saw the launch of Sony's PSP, which was intended as a companion handheld for PS2, even if it didn't quite work out that way. Among the best PS2 games ever you'll find some absolute classics - from console exclusives like God of War to mighty franchise chapters like Metal Gear Solid 3. It was also the original home to cult classics like Shadow of the Colossus, Psychonauts, and Okami - games that endure today on other formats.
Its DualShock controller has evolved into the amazing we know today, but the design remains very familiar. And PS2 also did early work in establishing the PlayStation Network we know today, even if it was the PS3 that birthed PSN in its current form. So read on for the best games from one of Sony's greatest ever consoles.

At least, you should. This ingenious hybrid challenged you to be as adept with city design as you were with dungeon crawling. You adopted the role of Max, a resourceful young craftsman who was charged with rebuilding his world by collecting items (geostones) from dungeons and assembling villages piece by piece with help from the local Firbits. 's world-creation system was addictive, to say the least. It's randomly generated dungeons made searching for geostones feel fresh with every visit, and it was easy to lose hours snapping photos and sussing out every last village piece. The game also shipped with an addictive golfing minigame called spheda and a fishing diversion; all in addition to a meaty story. We don't know how we found time to save the world, but we know we had fun doing it.
Soulcalibur 2 Arcade-to-console ports are risky, but Project Soul pulled off 's PS2 translation with nary a scratch. Considered one of the tightest, prettiest, and most fluid fighters of its day (and even today by some), the sequel improved on everything its Soul Blade and Soulcalibur predecessors did right, while introducing new faces, weapons, modes, upgraded visuals, and a substantial weapon master side quest. Part of our love for Soulcalibur 2 stems from the fact that this was the series' first appearance on a PlayStation console. True, Soul Blade made the leap from arcades to the PlayStation in the mid-'90s, but the first actual 'Soulcalibur' could only be enjoyed at home with a Dreamcast. By the time SoulCalibur 2 expanded the series' reach to other consoles, both hardcore and casual fighting fans were eager to enjoy their arcade favourite on the PS2, and Project Soul did not disappoint.
