It is nearly impossible to pick the ten best PlayStation 2 games, as there are too many amazing games to choose from. I know some of your favorite PS2 games are not on this list; some of mine are missing too, but sacrifices were made in an attempt to cull the list down to 10. The best proof for just how wide the range of quality games is for the PS2 is the impossible task of trying to create a top ten. The following is in no particular order and, for the sake of brevity at least, largely ignores multiformat games.
