    Oh and DeadOrAlive2 you can get it for close to nothing, and it's so good in multiplayer!


    I wanted to add so many more games... But then I thought those up there are the ones I consider "essentials", if you don't have them, and you have a PS2, you're from another planet.
    The others would be more games I really really enjoyed, but there "essentiallity" is questionable...

    You have 2 Tales Of The Abyss



    I'm sure that once more people put in their votes, there won't be so many 1 vote games.

    I pretty much agree that all those games are a must-play on PS2.

    Also, those games are everywhere on the interwebz. It's impossible not to find them [​IMG]

    when games are old (read seeders), you cant find them anymore.
    plus that if you are doomed to have dial up.
