My Top 10 PlayStation 2 Games

PS2 is the best selling console of all time, and really is a much better console than the PS1, though still far from my favorite, but I do love it anyway. I have 51 games for the sequel console and have played 41 of them so far. So which are my top 10? Let’s take a look!

#10

Mega_Man_X8_Coverart

Mega Man X8

Valuewave Co., Ltd/ Capcom

2004

The last game in the X series is pretty solid and a huge step up from 7, bringing back more of the roots of the series.

king kong

Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie

Ubisoft Montpellier/ Ubisoft

2005

I was gifted this randomly by someone and I thought it was going to be terrible like most movie games are. But it turned out to be an exciting, unique mostly first person shooter, and you even get to play as Kong on occasion which were great segments. A very solid and fun game. Now I know why…I had no idea it was made by Ubisoft.

ps2_call_of_duty_2_big_red_one_gh_se

Call of Duty 2: Big Red One

Treyarch/ Activision

2005

This is by far my favorite Call of Duty game. It was made in the height of first person shooters, a few years before their decline. So in addition to that, what really set this one apart for me was the story, or rather the character development of your group of soldiers. You actually get to learn about the people in your squad and develop an attachment of sorts to them, making you actually feel like part of the team. This has never been done before and never has again…as far as I know anyway.

#7

DBZ_Tenkaichi_3_Cover_2

Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3

Spike/ Atari SA

2007

This is easily my favorite Dragon Ball game of all time, and mainly because of the enormous roster. I can always sit and play a few matches thanks to the endless amount of characters, crazy attack moves and transformations.

Kingdom Hearts: Re:Chain of Memories

Jupiter Corporation/ Square Enix

2008

A full remake of the original GBA game, this version of the first sequel to Kingdom Hearts is quite impressive. Thanks to the clever use of cards, this is one of the best strategy games out there. But it’s easily the worst game in the KH series, mainly because it’s very slow moving, grindy and getting your cards broken all the time is super annoying. But it has a great story and introduces a butt load of important characters.

Star Wars: Battlefront II

Pandemic Studios/ LucasArts

2005

This is definitely my most played game on PS2. I played the crap out of it. Alone or with a friend, this game is so much fun. There’s nothing like whittling away a few hours by blowing up space ships or slaughtering armies of droids or troopers.

#4

gow

God of War

SCE Santa Monica/ SCEA

2005

This game set the standard for all future action games. Smooth, responsive controls, exhilarating combat, light puzzle solving, banging chicks, killing gods…this is the most macho game ever, and Kratos is easily the most bad ass character ever created. Such a fun game. Oh, and a good story.

#3

gow2

God of War II

SCE Santa Monica/ SCEA

2007

This game doesn’t F around. You start with everything you had in the first game and just get stronger. All the perfection from the first game is brought back and somehow improved upon, making this one of the best games ever made.

#2

Kingdom Hearts

Squaresoft

2002

I was hooked the moment I played this game. This was the best RPG I ever played at the time, because it took all the good stuff from the genre and left out all that complicated crap. The gameplay is excellent, the game satisfyingly challenging, and the start of the best story ever. Oh and the incredible wacky idea of combining Disney and Final Fantasy is geniusly bizzare.mIt’s hard to believe that 16 years later, we still have not seen the conclusion of said story.

#1

Kingdom Hearts II

Square Enix

2006

And here is my favorite PS2 game of all time! This game makes the first one look crappy beyond belief when compared to this one. It is hard to believe just how much they improved this game over it’s prequels. It’s just so good…the story, the world’s, the gameplay…my god the combat is so much fun. This is the only game I can think of that I would willingly grind just because it’s so much fun to kill stuff. It’s just a masterpiece…sniff…

Donald Trump Is President…Get Over It Already

I am not a political person. I don’t care about them; they certainly don’t interest me in any way. I don’t care who the president is in the slightest. Seriously, I couldn’t tell you who the Vice President is, or who Obama’s was either. In fact, the only thing I like about presidents is seeing how horribly they have aged in the 4-8 years behind probably the most stressful job ever. I hate everything about politics and I hate that I am writing this, but I have just had enough.

I am of course referring to the fact that almost everyday I see a headline or I accidentally find myself partially reading an article that is slandering our president. The trouble is, these are the most biased and untrue articles I have ever seen. Do these authors really think people are believing what they are writing? And why write them at all!? Why do haters constantly spread false rumors around? Just because they don’t agree with him, or didn’t vote for him, they are going to make sure they can turn as many people to their side of thinking as possible.

But why? What is really the point? How is this doing anything beneficial for the country? These people are just hurting. No one will ever know if Trump is ever doing anything good, because there are so many things, 99% of them made up, talking about all the horrible things he’s done.

Why can’t we just get the facts in an unbiased way so that we can make our own decision of our presidents? The poor guy had so much hate before even being elected. A President should only be judged at the end of their term. You can’t judge someone on their campaign speeches. Sure, that gives you an idea of where they stand and what they might try to do, but when has any politician ever done everything, or even remotely close to everything they promise during campaign speeches? They care only about the votes. That is why Obama pulled the troops out of Iraq right before his reelection, because that made him look good. Reasons like this are why I hate politicians. Their motivations, their life styles, their thinking, is nothing like the people they are payed to represent.

But any-who, I remember not even 3 days went by when Trump was inaugurated, and the whole internet exploded about how he was the worst president of all time etc. Really? How can anyone accomplish anything, good or bad in 3 days?

Everyone swore the country was going to fail with Trump, but here we are. They swore it with Obama and Bush and every other president ever. But guess what? We’re still here, as always, and life has pretty much remained the same throughout all of that. It is this fact that I don’t understand a lot of people. So many people seem to bank their whole life on a president, swearing that their life will be ruined if the person they vote for isn’t elected.

This is not the case. I here people complaining everyday that their lives have gotten terribly worse since Trump has come into office, and it just makes me laugh. These are people I have known for decades and their lives are wholly unchanged from when Obama was in office a year ago. The only constant I have noticed with life is that it sucks, and gets suckier every year. And that is because the world is occupied by human beings, not because of whoever is president at the time. We will always end up paying more money than the year before, greed will always reign supreme, and we will always struggle. That is the life we live. Instead of placing all our unspoken problems in a president who is never going to actually fix any of your problems, we would all have to actually band together and take a stand. Unfortunately this would require the unity of the entire country or government, if not the world. And that is just never going to happen…period.

The President is just there for people to blame their problems on so they can take the blame off themselves and feel a little bit better about themselves before they go to sleep.

For instance, I heard something on the news the other day that Wall Street reached an 18 year high and the economy has been the best its been in years and years…yada…yada. This makes me laugh. All my life, I listened to people blame bad economies on the president. I for one, don’t see how a single man could influence it so greatly, but I digress. But when it raises or improves, I never hear any credit going to the pres, especially when this is Trump we are talking about. So when things are looking up, it has nothing to do with the president, but if someone is laid off or gets a pay cut, F that damn guy in the oval office.

And the whole political party set up is just baffling. Democrats side with democrats, republicans with republicans. There’s nothing like slicing a huge rift in your country. And from what I’ve seen, most of the time, voters don’t choose a side all on their own, they just go with what their parents were, because that is what they were raised to believe. That is why my state will forever be democratic.

But anyway, none of this is news. This is how its always been and always will be. But with social media and the internet and all that junk, so many people are able to voice their opinions across the globe now, and I can’t stand it. Mainly because it seems every celebrity or media site are all democratic or liberal or whatever to an unbelievably obnoxious degree. This is why I really am fed up and am writing this now.

I don’t want to hear about political views when I am trying to read something about Star Wars. When a new song by an artist comes out, I don’t want to hear about how much they hate Trump. I don’t care, and I seriously doubt anyone else does, though Trump haters revel in it, I imagine.

Just seriously, keep your personal politics out of the lime light. That is not why you are famous. I’ve even read a handful of video game reviews with Trump slander going down within it. Why? How do the going on of Donald Trump have anything to do with a video game about some fantasy stuff going down in an imaginary world from 158 B.C.? Shut up with this crap already!

And I’m still hearing about some comment he made about pussy grabbing or something like 2 years ago and how every woman just hates him for saying that. This is truly mind blowing. Women really revealed their naivety and ignorance at this moment.

Here’s a helpful hint so you don’t get so butt hurt. LITERALLY EVERY MALE TALKS LIKE THAT!!! So either live with it or start a separate country for just women, completely void of all wiener.

But the most disappointing thing about all of this is how truly childish and pathetic democrats have shown themselves to be. When Trump won the election, there were riots and all sorts of destruction on innocent cars, buildings, people, etc.

What are you proving? That you have no respect for the country that you apparently are so emotionally invested in that you act like a complete jackass to defend it? That sentence doesn’t really make senses does it? Just like your actions! Like seriously, all of those rioters should be removed from the country. They have no reason to be here. If your life has truly gone so down hill in the past year, then you should have no problem leaving anyway. I don’t want to share a country with such people. They are honestly no better than terrorists as far as I am concerned.

And here is the beauty about politics. As I said before, the political parties are stupid and hardly anyone votes for anyone but the political party they are a “part” of. No one actually pays attention to their campaign crap and all that. And I am going to be a perfect example. The democrats have acted so unbelievably babyish and disgraceful, that I will never vote for a democrat ever again in my life. I do not want to be associated with such people, nor do I want them to have any kind of power, however small political power might actually be. Such violent and rambunctious people should not have power at all.

And that’s what all your nay saying has gotten you people. One less person to vote for your “life saving heroes.” I am sure I am not the only who feels this way, so a few more votes lost there too. And that’s how politics work. We don’t care who is up there at the podium, but the banner they stand in front of.

No president is ever truly wonderful. It is impossible. I don’t agree with everything any of them do, but I assume they are doing the best they can. I don’t care what party they belong to. Honestly, who are we to judge the president unless we were one ourselves. I can’t imagine even remotely all that they know and have to deal with. I just put my faith in my country and hope the people living in it make the world a better place, not just one person sitting in the white house.
