Hottest PS2 Game (Write Ins)

Postby Friday » Fri Feb 01, 2019 8:29 am

Well, it's that time again.

FRIDAY GO BACK AND FINISH YOUR OLD POLLS YOU STILL HAVE LIKE THREE OPEN

DO YOU AT LEAST PROMISE TO FINISH THIS ONE

We've done NES, SNES, Genesis, PS1. The Age of 3D is now fully upon us.

Again, US releases only.

As we move forward in time, there's more and more crossover between platforms. RE4, for instance, was also on the Gamecube. So should it go in this thread of the forthcoming Gamecube thread, or both, or none? It sold mostly evenly on both platforms (I think the PS2 version outsold the Gamecube slightly) so I can't really use that either. In the end, I'm going to include it here and any other games (like Soul Calibur 2) based purely on where -I- played them. It's arbitrary, but whatever. Make your own poll with blackjack and hookers. That being said, if you really want to write in Half-Life I won't stop you.

1. God Hand
2. Killer 7
3. Kingdom Hearts
4. Kingdom Hearts 2
5. Viewtiful Joe
6. FF12
7. FFX
8. Pyschonauts
9. Silent Hill 2
10. Silent Hill 3
11. Silent Hill 4
12. Twisted Metal: Black
13. Gitaroo Man
14. Disgaea
15. Devil May Cry
16. Devil May Cry 3
17. Ratchet and Clank
18. Dragon Quest VIII
19. Beyond Good and Evil
20. Dark Cloud 2
21. Okami
22. Guitar Hero
23. Soul Calibur 2
24. Soul Calibur 3
25. Guilty Gear 2
26. Frequency
27. Persona 3 FES
28. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3
29. Katamari Damacy
30. God of War
31. Resident Evil 4
32. Rez
33. Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner
34. Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
35. GTA San Andreas
36. GTA Vice City
37. Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance
38. Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence
39. Ico
40. Shadow of the Colossus
41. God of War 2
42. Bully
43. Timesplitters 2
44. Persona 4 (Poll closed, let's get drunk)
45. Odin Sphere
46. jpeg Dog Zero: The Belkan War
47. Armored Core 2
48. Armored Core 3
49. Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter (hey Paco)
50. Castlevania: Lament of Innocence (hey Mars)
51. Castlevania: Curse of Darkness
52. Dawn of Lyrai
53. Drakengard
54. Drakengard 2
55. Fatal Frame 2
56. Nano Breaker (hey fbm)
57. Ys: The Ark of Napishtim (I -think- I remember Brentai telling me this was the best Ys. Feel free to correct me.)



Write in up to 3. I'll add everyone in as long as the total number isn't crazy, if it goes over, say, 80, I'll run a megapoll.

just for that it's going to the top of the list

I'm nostalgiaing for it pretty hard right now as it's the only game I've tried that I can't get playable on pcxs2.

Ys: The Ark of Napishtim (I -think- I remember Brentai telling me this was the best Ys. Feel free to correct me.)


That's Oath in Felghana, at least by popular opinion. Ys 6 is fun but it has some weird issues; Oath iterates on and refines the engine, while redeeming one of the most maligned entries in the classic series.

Star Wars: Battlefront II

I've never had a PS2, so beatbandito can use my 3 submissions if need be.

(carries laptop to book/game shelf)
Armored Cor- dangit
Katama- of course
Zone of the- okay

Lexi: What about Dragon Quarter? Because that's definitely not the hottest. I loved it, but it killed the series.
Yoji: Nope, Pacobird wrote it in.
Lexi: ...huh. I think I'm unclear on what "hottest" is here.

And a question about Killer7: Are we judging strictly on the PS2 version or the game in general? Because the PS2 port stank; weirdly long load times, graphical shortcuts, that kind of thing.

All entries are to be judged on the system the poll title refers to.

That's Oath in Felghana, at least by popular opinion. Ys 6 is fun but it has some weird issues; Oath iterates on and refines the engine, while redeeming one of the most maligned entries in the classic series.


Hmm. Is Ark at least the best Ys entry for PS2?

It's the only one we got in the U.S.*, so... yes?

I wouldn't expect it to get very far though.


* Japan got a somewhat unique port of I+II Chronicles, and (different) third-party remakes of 3, 4, 5, meaning that the entire series up to 6 got put on the PS2 in some form in Japan.

I was kind of hoping more people would pull from the lists, I made a top three for each list to represent me and caithness' selfless sacrifice.
