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!
