As you all know I'm not a fan of the PS2, but today it's 13 years old.

This thread is for all 6th generation consoles.

Love the console - many fond memories playing through the Jak trilogy and the Ratchet games, being amazed by ICO and Shadow of the Colossus and spending hours on Final Fantasy X and Dark Cloud.

Coincidentally I'm playing Splinter Cell HD today (though I believe it's meant to be the xbox version). I've enjoyed the PS2 most of the games I've played through HD collections including the first half of Jays list (other than Jak 2 obviously). Looking forwards to the FFX HD collection.

I suppose my happiest PS2 memories were of watching a friend play Final Fantasy X, and occasionally helping my brother out on some of the mini missions in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. It was also the console where I first sampled Rez, Space Channel 5, Okami, Canis Canem Edit and Parappa the Rapper 2. Not bad for a guy who never owned a PS2, I guess.

I've also got an unplayed copy of Shadow of the Colossus sitting on my shelf. I picked it up very cheap when my brother had his PS2, but I have no personal means of playing it myself.

Best thing's I've played on a PS2 is Team ICO's games, nothing else on the console applied to me after getting a Cube & Xbox.

It's what I'd imagine a drug trip to be, from the perspective of a person who's never dabbled in 'em. Typical SEGA inventiveness of that era. Space Channel 5 was similarly inventive, but I wasn't all that keen on the game itself.

REZ a classic dreamcast game which was ported to PS2. I need to get REZ for my dreamcast but is on the pricy side.

I took the PS2 option at the time because it was stupidly cheap. I think it cost me £6.

Yeah, I got my copy for dirt cheap too. PS1 and PS2 are ridiculously cheap these days.

There's still a few priceyer one's like Hack on PS2, just looking at REZ on DC it's down to about £40 now used to be up around £90.

Also I've brought up X-Box, Cube and Dreamcast would you mind if I change topic from PS2 to 6th Generation thread instead or leave it how it is.

Feel free to expand it if you wish, though naturally people are going to reference other consoles in the same time period when discussing ports and such.

@Jay: Just don't expect to find cheap copies of the Sony Mega Man outings, Klonoa and Tombi.

My local indy store has ex-rental versions of both Tombi's there £35 each which is a good price.

I don't view Retro often, but I feel that I need to come in and sing the praises of the Gamecube.  What a console.  It was my favourite in the voting thread, don'tcha know.  Luigi's Mansion, Sunshine, Monkey Ball 2, Metroid Prime, Pokémon XD, Mêlée, Power Tennis, Double Dash!!, Wind Waker, Thousand-Year Door...  It may not have had a lot of games, but it did have some utter classics.  Nice dinky console too: I actually like it more than some of the later, "cool"-looking consoles, like the Apple-white Wii and Wii U.  And the controller wasn't bad either.

I'm sure I've forgotten some other games I loved (I never played Chibi Robo or Jungle Beat, sadly), but that list is enough to make me all warm and glowing when I look at it.

The Cube was 3rd on my top 10, highest nintendo console. That's some great game's Balla and you missed out Resident Evil Remake, Zero & 4, eternal darkness, PN03, metal gear twin snakes, tales of symphonia and more

I think I preferred the Cube at the time, but retrospectively I'm high on the PS2.

They likely will.

I saw a post about Spider-Man 2 on Reddit yesterday, anyone play that? Best superhero game to date.

I've got that on the cube but still haven't slotted it into the machine. Surely it can't be better than Batman though?!

I played it on Cube back in the day, it was excellent. But now like Andy say's batman is better but for that generation if you want a super hero, movie or licensed game that's the best really you can do. Apart from maybe Riddick on Xbox, also I think Xbox version is best for spidey.

They were all basically the same console to console though. Meh 

Still a cracker though, and while I'd probably agree that Batman: Arkham Asylum is a better game (I prefer Asylum to City because it feels like a much tighter, polished experience) I still think Spider-Man 2 trumps Batman in regards to moving about and free roaming.

I used to think the same about Asylum but the enemies and levels are just much more varied.

I think the xbox version had better draw distance if I remember correctly. I think asylum is the better of the 3 games.

I was also thinking back onto the Timesplitters series - bloody brilliant games those. Whatever happened to that Timesplitters next-gen game we were going to get a while back?
