It has so many GREAT games for it! Especially when playing football games. The gameplay is great and honestly the 360 and ps3's graphics can sometimes get too detailed in my opinion. Like when you look around and everything in the room in the game has all kinds of shadows on it, scratches, ETC. It's not necessary and it shouldn't decide which console is better. Especially when another console has better gameplay like the PS2.
This console brought gaming to a whole new level. It was very simple, but both fun and elegant in its simplicity, which is an outstanding quality to have on a game console. Besides having great games, and an abundance of them, it was also the best selling console of all time, and had the longest life span of a console, it was in production from 2000 to 2013. This is the best console of all time and nothing will come close to it for a long time to come, if ever.
I had this and the original Xbox and however much I loved this console... I'm sorry to say the Xbox was superior in every way. The graphics, games (Halo 2, controllers (yes the big duke controllers which were perfect for gaming) and the online.
I never got the wingers who said those controllers were too big. Clearly they just have small feminine hands.
I have had my PS2 for 10 years and has NEVER got broken. Also has some of the best games! ( Destroy all humans, Simpsons: hit and run, Grand Theft Auto 3 and Grand Theft Auto San Andreas) It was also my first ever game console and now I play on my Xbox 360, yet I still have my PS2. Oh, I forgot, the games are great prices too!
Had this ever since I was born and I love the eyetoy the games (love yugioh gx: tag force evolution and sonic heroes also sega superstars) and everything this is my second best console ever 1st being n64 and I'm so glad I grew up with this thing! This should be at least second!
I believe this system should be number 1. I grew up on the PS, PS2,
And the PS3, and had an great time on all three. The PS2 sold the most systems of all time and that speaks for itself. The PS2 is a console for hardcore gamers and gamers that just want to have fun. The PS2 should definitely be in front of the PS3 and Xbox 360.
This is by far the greatest console of all time... I love it! Games like God of War, Killzone, Jak and Daxter, Star Wars Battlefront, Cabela's, Tony Hawk, and much much more just made it so much fun. It may not have been the most advanced console of it's time but it's the one I have the most fond memories with.
This list is a load of rubbish. The NES saved games consoles, the ps2 brought in analog sticks, the atari 2600 made gaming possible, yet a pimped ps2 and a disc eating box that fails every 5 minutes are 1 and 2. Fanboys just want to see their favourite console they use now at the top
Absolute destroyer of all competition in that era, sold an astronomical number of units and still very playable to this day (Grand Theft Auto need I say more, but if you want I've got crash bandicoot, star wars battlefront and then some)
How on earth is this not higher, it has been supported for so long and has sold 150 million units. it also has amazing exclusives which no matter how much halo is hype up will always destroy the Xbox's. sony always manages to get amazing exclusives
It still hasn't died yet and it absolutely changed the gaming world. Online? Done. Graphics? Perfect! So many good memories of Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Gran Turismo 2... let alone it is the most sold console of all time. Enough said.
PlayStation is master race! I have such good memories of playing on this when I was little. And there are still awesome games now. But my brother broke it :( whatever still my favorite console with really creative good games
It should be number 1 on this list because it has 156,000,000 units its the best selling consoles and the bad thing about the playstation2 is that it ended in the 6th generation of consoles because it ended on jan,51,2013
The fact that this console is the best selling console ever and has the most games than any other is enough to cement it to the top of this list. I even occasionally still play San Andreas - jamienicholls
Blad this is the greates console ever I pre ordered fifa 13 and I got 8 games. Ps2 will never get boring its great to kill a couple hours with it. Who cares about ps3 seriously it doesn't matter if the ps2 has a wired controller it makes it even funner. And all the games are incredibly cheap and awesome. Its just great I tell you.
Nearly all of the games I played back when I was an intense gamer were on the PS2. Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy XII, Xenosaga... There will always be a fragment of PS2 in my heart. - LukasMcDrake
Sold well, amazing games, amazing controller, what's not to love? I am a Nintendo fan so I don't own one, but man, no matter which side you choose, you are missing out!
Ratchet and Clank was my gaming childhood, and I still enjoy it to this day. I also like Sly Cooper, Jak and Daxter, and the surprisingly good SpongeBob games. - Garythesnail
PlayStation 2 must be at first place.This is the most revolutionary console with the best games like Grand Theft Auto,Final Fantasy,Metal Gear,Resident Evil 4,God of War...And this console have 155 million copies.
Grand Theft Auto San Andreas best game on Planet,Sony PlayStation 2 best console of all time.
Games made for it had good gameplay. There wasn't only focused on graphics like today. Best racing and sports games came out on this console.
Sold the most units of any system in history and had great games such Ratchet and Clank, God of war, and grand theft Auto just name a few.
So many fantastic games, very reliable hardware, sold through the roof, could play DVD's, perfect controller. The best there ever was. - mikeyeggo
Classic console. Owned the best titles that made up my childhood. Best gaming system of all time.
They still make games for this long amazing in years to come we will see if PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 how long they will last
The best selling video game console. The best experience Sonny could give us, better than all consoles of all time
