Best PS2 Games

Okay, it's starting to get to be that time where the games are nice and cheap, but right before that point where scarcity becomes an issue and used game store completely rook you because they know you can't find the stuff anywhere else. PS2 was a really cool game system, it's the first one I've owned since NES and I'm glad I did because it stomped everyone else and had the coolest games. The verdict is still out on PS3, but since there aren't as many console-exclusive games anymore it looks kind of bad for PS3. Anyway, what are the best games so I can get them before they go away?

I wish used PS2s were as cheap as used Gamecubes. I'd love to finally pick up a PS2, but I don't think I care enough to spend the $80 or whatever a used slimline unit goes for. Oh well.

If you haven't played Katamari Damacy, do so. Bizarre as hell and completely fun.

Gran Turismo 4, SSX Tricky and Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

they're all pretty old, but still darn good. M vs. C 2 is kind of rare, though.

Add ToCA Race Driver 3, MotoGP 4, Enthusia, Okami (although the Wii version is slick), both of the Katamari games, Tourist Trophy (I liked it), Simpsons Hit & Run, Star Wars: Starfighter, Colin McRae Rally (I have the 3rd one), and any Guitar Hero game (although you'd have to get a guitar controller, too). The Lego Star Wars games are a lot of fun, too.

Original movie trailer:

Okay, now it makes a lot more sense to me. I think my mom vehemently kept me away from those kinds of movies so I never heard the storyline before. I might have to get it for myself now.

+whatever for Katamari. The first one is mandatory. The second one is almost as good (which is still really good).

Dance Dance Revolution are also good picks.

God of War
Gran Turismo 3/4 (espically if you can get your hands on a Logitech steering wheel and pedals)
Metal Gear Solid 2 (i haven't played MGS3 yet but it comes highly recommended by others)

I'll post more when i get home, i've got a big stack of games sitting next to my computer monitor. Alot of them unplayed/unbeaten though...

(i like to collect the good ones)

I like all the lego games. I got'em for playing with my 9 yr old daughter, but I like them solo, too. I also highly recommend Tomb Raider Anniversary.

Shadow of the Colossus is kinda mandatory.

If you haven't played it already, Resident Evil 4 is also a good choice.
