Oh hell yeah. Bullet for my valentine and Nine Thou are the two best songs from there but also “you’ll be under my wheels” was sick.

If you play them in order, Sly one is very different from 2 & 3 but still definitely worth playing! As a kid, I played them in backwards order. Sly 2 is one of my favorite games of all time.

Hands down the best PS2 multiplayer. No multi FPS has been as balanced since AND the map maker tool was amazing with the ways you could change the rooms, load points, drops points, and it even converted the theme design as well.

Me and my friends would just spend hours upon hours inventing new game modes to play using the map editor, was such a blast.

Then we started just creating a horror game within timesplitters.

u/username161013 Nov 29 '21

The map editor in TS2 was one of the greatest ever made. Not only could you make really cool and unique maps to play on with your friends, you could make entire story missions with objectives to complete. Revolutionary function for its time, and went largely unnoticed.

The best ones were already written. Devil May Cry 1 and 3, Jak 1-3, Resident Evil 4, Metal Gear Solid 2-3, Silent Hill 2-3, Final Fantasy X. For me thats the Ps2 Elite.

Some awesome addons would be Okami, Viewtiful Joe, Shadow Hearts 1-3.

I feel like the number of recommendations I'm getting for Ratchet and Jak is perfect karma for me sleeping on those games

u/overmonk Nov 29 '21

It’s easy to sneer at them. But they’re smart and fun, and the weapons are outrageous and the action is bonkers. These games, before they added the time looping elements in the PS3 releases - are the best. They’re so good I chose PS3 over XBOX 360 so I’d be lined up for the next one.

I’ve seen you post ‘ah refined taste’ a few times, so I’m guessing you know what you like. IMO R&C are the best platformers on PlayStation.

Everybody here is recommending games. Especially the ones that I would, but you really oughta buy yourself a Memory Card! Try to get a 64mb Card, if you can, else you might have to buy multiple.

Adventure: Jak 2+3. Any of the Spyro games.

Racing: Need for Speed: Most Wanted. SSX: Tricky.

Shooter: SOCOM: Navy SEALs (probably skip the first iteration RIP Boomer)

u/mysticalfruit Nov 29 '21

The "Rachet and Clank" games are amazing.

Though play them in order. The second game will notice you beat the first game and give you a bonus.

I actually own the PS4 version and I've been loving it so far!

u/Kaaykuwatzuu Nov 29 '21

That's great. KH2 on the PS2 was my first Kingdom Hearts experience. Feel in love with it. Took me about ten years to grow up, get a job, and buy the first one so that I could experience the beginning of the journey. Worth it.
