    Going to go out in a limp to post here just for massive ego stroking about PS2 games I own here and say which ones are really best of best out of here. And what counts as best? I think it should be a game you enjoy a lot and can come back to it at alll times, meaning that the first experience isn't the high point and rest being just dull.

    So here's what I have:

    And out of all these, I say Tekken 5, Jak 3, Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams, Viewtiful Joe, Final Fantasy X & XII and Rayman 3 are all definitive favourites of mine. Each of those are from different genre and are magnum opus of said genre, which I have yet to see even games of today to top off.
    What are your favourites?

    "Definitive" does not always mean it's an PS2 exclusive but some of those multiplatform games are developed for PS2 and with PS2 architecture in mind.

    Red Faction
    GTA 3
    Champions of Norrath
    Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance I & II
    Hungry Ghosts (SH looks like a pops drama movie in comparison)
    SotC (ofc)
    MGS 2-3 (not my favorite but it is a definitive PS2 game)
    F1 Grand Prix Challenge
    Transformers Armada: Prelude to Energon

    Well I was meaning definitive more as a term for a rason why you would ever to recommend games on it for people from the future, when everybody probably has long forgotten about even PS3/4.

    Metal Gear Solid 3 is honestly my favourite game from the PS2. But the Subsistence version, the original has a weird camera which really takes away from the game.

    You mean fixed camera like in every iteration of PS1 games had when they didn't figure out yet camera that you could rotate with analog stick?

    Yeah, it worked in MGS1&2, but not so much in 3
