No particular order (except the first one is number one)

-Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
-Tony Hawks Pro Skater Underground 2
-God of War 2
-Ratchet and Clank (all of them)
-GTA Vice City
-Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
-Kingdom Hearts 2
-Need for Speed Underground

In no particular order:

- Final Fantasy XII
- Gran Turismo 4
- Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance
- Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence
- Gradius V
- Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King

The list is smaller than I expected. But that gen was an unusual one that had my main console go from the Dreamcast to the PS2, and then the PS2 getting slightly edged out as my main console by the GameCube (like 40-60 or 45/55 %). The last time a Nintendo made a console that managed to be my main console of choice. The only other having been the SNES, two generations prior.

So there are quite a few titles that could have been included here, but I played them on either Dreamcast (like Resident Evil Code: Veronica and Street Fighter III: Third Strike) or GameCube (like Resident Evil 4 and Beyond Good & Evil).

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

Haven't played PS2 games or the console as much as I should've. Maybe I'll buy a PS2 one day. Of the ones I've played my favorite are...
-Lego Star Wars: The Video Game
-Both Star Wars Battlefront games

I knew you would say that lol. But jokes aside, I really like the SSX games too. SSX Tricky and SSX 3 were amazing, I also played SSX On Tour for a short while.

On topic: So it appears that all games from my list in the OP are resonating with you guys since all were mentioned a few times in your lists. However, nobody likes FFVII: Dirge of Cerberus *cries in the corner* I wonder why.

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

I never even had that many PS2 games, and that generation as a whole was the absolute nadir of my involvement with video games. The medium just wasn't clicking with me at the time. Probably 80% or more of my time spend playing video games from 2000 to 2005 was just in Halo. But I did manage to nab several gems on the PS2, namely Final Fantasy X, Shadow of the Colossus, and Gradius V.
