Top 10 PS2 Games in my Backlog

Sony’s PlayStation 2 is a system I completely missed out on growing up. I played some PS2 games at friends’ houses, but I never had an opportunity to play the big PS2 single-player games.

Since those days, I have experienced a few PlayStation 2 titles myself, both on actual hardware and via emulation. But for the most part, I’ve still played very few PS2 games. Some classic PS2 titles that aren’t in my PS2 backlog include Final Fantasy X, as I plan on playing an HD remaster version someday, and the Kingdom Hearts games, as I own both the 1.5 and 2.5 HD Remix collections on PS3, and have played a bit of both. Still though, there are quite a few PS2 games that haven’t seen an HD remaster on another system. Some of them are available to download digitally and play on other Sony systems, but many PS2 games have only had a release on the PS2 itself.

That said, here’s my list of the Top 10 PS2 Games in my Backlog! Read on, and discover how I plan to try (likely in vain) to catch up on all the PS2 games I missed out on!

Top 10 PSP Games in my Backlog

Having been playing a lot of Persona 3 Portable lately, Sony’s PlayStation Portable (PSP) has been on my mind a lot.

I never had a PSP, so I missed out on the system and its library entirely. Now I have several possible ways to experience the PSP titles I missed out on, whether that be on my PSTV by playing games from PlayStation Network, or emulating them on my phone or PC. Personally, I’ve really enjoyed playing Persona 3 Portable on my phone with a Bluetooth controller. The one I have expands and your phone sits in the middle with the buttons on either side, so I like to imagine that the experience is similar to a real PSP.

Enough rambling though, let’s get into the Top 10 PSP Games in my Backlog!

This week, all I played was the PSP game Persona 3 Portable. I’ve tried to keep out any plot spoilers, but if you want to play P3P yourself someday and go in blind you might not want to keep reading!
