The Best PlayStation 2 Games
Sony’s PlayStation 2 console is a classic example of the “survival of the fittest” mentality. Developers and publishers had to learn to use the new hardware, and Sony wasn’t going to provide the resources they needed to maximize the PS2’s potential. Sony’s approach to PS2 games in the early days was “figure it out,” and the development kits and instructional documentation were extremely unorganized. Developers working on games for other consoles also needed more resources to create titles for the PS2 version.
Sony’s PlayStation 2 has had a long and storied history. As of June 2013, there were 3870 PS2 games available. With its classic nature, there are many great games available for this system. Many of the classics have been adapted for a modern platform. Sony’s PlayStation 2 was sold in over 155 million units worldwide, making it the longest running video game console in history. Listed below are some of the most popular PS2 titles.
The PS2’s architecture and design are still impressive. Sony managed to create multiple processors and chips to help it run games effectively. It is difficult to reproduce the same quality of experience on a PS2 with today’s games. This was made possible by the ‘Emotion Engine’, a proprietary Sony software. It also sported a full-color display and a number of other innovations. But what really sets it apart from the competition is its ability to play a wide range of games.
