Never actually played Gradius V, but the series to me was the embodiment of cool in the NES/MSX era.

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.

I tried playing Dirge of Cerberus, but I couldn't get past the first boss.  The controls on that part did not feel intuitive at all, not to mention that it is nothing like the gameplay up to that point.

Shadow of the Colossus is just perfection.

Based on what I actually played during the PS2 generation itself...

Final Fantasy X
Time Splitters 2 and Future Perfect
Metal Gear Solid 2
Devil May Cry 3
Dragon Quest VIII
