Which has a better game library?

Playstation 2
Nintendo DS
Both are equal
See results

Now that DS and PS2 are so close in hardware sales (please leave the debate about which one is ahead out of this thread), we can call them both kings. PS2 is the king of consoles, DS is the king of handhelds. Which one of the two kings has a more loyal court, that is, which one has a better library of games?

I've given some examples from both camps below, but feel free to give me suggestions that I can add to this post.

Please note that this is not only about exclusives, but rather the overall library.

All the PS2 games listed in the OP are terrible imo...

EDIT: Apart from GTA:SA!

Anyway, I vote for PS2. Lots of great games like AOE2, Turok: Evolution, etc.

You think so, lol? Well, that's why I asked for suggestions. What is AOE2? Not sure if I should add Turok since its reception isn't very good.

Age of Empires 2, of course. Add Turok! It's one of the best games of all time, if not THEE best

I was actually thinking about this earlier but I have to say the PS2 outshines the NDS in software especially when it comes to RPGs imo.


RPG = PS2 (possibly debatable but in terms of newer IPs/installations the PS2 wins while the NDS wins the remakes)
Platformers = NDS
Racing = PS2
Action = PS2
Fighters = PS2
Sports = PS2
Strategy = NDS (?)
Puzzles = NDS
Shooters = PS2

Five of the PS2 games listed in the OP are on my "top 50" list, so this is an easy decision for me. The PS2's library is a monster.

Age of Empires 2 was on PS2?? What the crap! Alright, adding Turok then

I love the DS -- it's probably the greatest handheld ever -- but this isn't much of a contest. PS2 wins rather easily.

Fixed OP up a bit but can't for the life of me make words bigger (I'm even using the How-to thread)

Not a fan of handhelds so it's an easy win for PS2.
