Maximo VS Army Of Zin

Odin Sphere

Dark Chronicle (Dark Cloud 2)

God Hand

Shadow Of The Colossus

I should definitely check out the Maximo games, and God Hand is from Clover, right? The ex-Capcom studio that would later become Platinum Games, if I remember.

Very interesting that you specifically list MGS3: Subsistence. I've read about this in some gaming magazines back in the day but I couldn't imagine if I would like it. This is basically the pure gameplay essence of a MGS game with no cutscenes at all, right?

Dragon Quest VIII
DMC3 Special Edition
Silent Hill 2
Ace Combat Zero
Persona 3
Persona 4
SMT: Nocturne
MGS3: Snake Eater
Ace Combat Unsung War
Ace Combat 4 Shattered Skies
Disgaea
Disgaea 2
Okami
Suikoden III
Shadow of the Colossus
Dark Cloud 2

Lots of PS2 games I haven't played yet though, so this list will likely get changed in the future. 

I think the appeal of Ace Combat games is quite hard to describe, isn't it? You fly aroud and make stuff go boom, but there is so much more to it, these games usually have a very deep storyline as well.

- Jak II / Jak 3
- Final Fantasy XII
- Ratchet Deadlocked
- Resident Evil: Code Veronica X
- Space Chimps
- Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

There's a lot of great PS2 games, but I can't list them all.

My gf played the Jak trilogy on the PS2 and while she really enjoyed the first game in the series, she absolutely hated the second. What is it that you like about it?
