In this month's issue of Retro Gamer (issue 191, Retro Gamer is a British commercial magazine dedicated to retro games and hardware) are the results of the readers' favourite PS2 game vote. The winners are: 25 Gradius V 24 Virtual Fighter 4 Evolution 23 Devil May Cry 22 Final Fantasy XII 21 Grand Theft Auto III 20 Dragon Quest: The Journey of the Cursed King 19 Kingdom Hearts 18 Gran Turismo 4 17 Katamari Damacy 16 Outrun 2006: Coast 2 Coast 15 Persona 4 14 Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy 13 Timesplitters 2 12 Okami 11 God of War 10 Burnout 3: Takedown 9 Metal Gear Solid 2 8 Ico 7 Silent Hill 2 6 Final Fantasy X 5 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas 4 Resident Evil 4 3 Metal Gear Solid 3 2 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 1 Shadow of the Colossus I don't think it's too surprising that Shadow of the Colossus won, or that Resident Evil 4 is so high, but I am surprised that there are so few first person shooters in there. Granted, the PS2 had very few exclusive FPSs, with the original Timesplitters and Cold Winter being the only ones I can think of offhand, but the console had some good ports of PC first person shooters, and also had all of the major multi-console FPSs of the time too. I'd definitely have put the superb Timesplitters: Future Perfect in the list, and probably Half-Life, Unreal Tournament, and Quake 3 as well, but then I am a FPS fanatic. And of course Deus Ex: The Conspiracy is nowhere on the list at all. I'll never understand why such a fantastic game (which is 96% identical to the PC original, which is just called Deus Ex) is all but unknown on the PS2, whereas on the PC many people still regard it as the best PC game ever. I can't comment on many games in the list, but I'm surprised that GTA Vice City is higher than GTA San Andreas. I'd agree that Vice City has better atmosphere and *much* better music, but to me, everything else is better in GTA San Andres.
