We are going to do what so many other sites SHOULD do - let the public decide what is the best PS2 title of the year.  I'd like everyone to post their top 5 in this thread.  We'll cut that list down and create polls to declare our winners.  This isn't a time to argue about anyone elses choice, so if you think Horsez is your GOTY, just toss it in here.  We'll laugh, but that is your vote.

Final Fantasy XII
Guitar Hero 2
Grandia III

I haven't tried much in the way of other new PS2 games this year, though Gamefly is allegedly trying to send me Valkyrie Profile 2 after they botched everything else for me so far this month.

These are the only 3 I bought this year, I believe.

Dragon Quest VIII was released in 2005, otherwise it'd be my #1 pick.  Thus:

1.  Final Fantasy XII

2.  Lego Star Wars II

By sheer volume of games I've acquired I should have a lot of PS2 candidates, unfortunately I haven't been able to play them all.

However:

FFXII tops what I have played

Okami is a close second

I just bought a PS2 this fall so I haven't had a chance to play MGS 3, DMC 3 or KH II yet. I have played GOD of War, but wasn't it released in 2005?

I've gotta go with FFXII getting the top spot.

Runners up would be MLB 06 : The Show and Guitar Hero 2.

Nothing this past year.  There were a few could-have-beens but they were ruined by design decisions.  Like putting moogles in FFXII. Gag.  At any rate, nothing for 2006.


I think after God of War 2 in 2k7 I am done with the PS2.  What a great machine though.  Was a blast.
