I voted the PS3 because that's the one I spent most of my time with, but we all know that the PS2 is king.

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.

I'm probably going to have to go with the PS2, if only for the sheer number of exceptional games the console had, but the PS1 and PS4 could have just as easily been number 1, and I think the PS3 is great as well, at least as far its game library is concerned, but perhaps the weakest of the four overall.

Top 5 PS2 games would be:
1. Shadow of the Colossus
2. Final Fantasy X
3. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
4. Persona 4
5. Okami

And just because I can, here's my top 5 for the PS1, PS3 and PS4 as well.
PS1:
1. Final Fantasy IX
2. The Legend of Dragoon
3. Final Fantasy VIII
4. Final Fantasy VII
5. Grandia

PS3:
1. Dark Souls
2. Valkyria Chronicles
3. The Last of Us
4. Dark Souls II
5. The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II

PS4:
1. Bloodborne
2. Dark Souls III
3. Uncharted 4
4. Horizon: Zero Dawn
5. Nier: Automata



Surprised so many people are voting for PS5. Granted the console has been out for just 1.5 years.. and from current releases. There's hardly any big hitters, especially when compared to older PS consoles..



I like the original Playstation the best. It was the first non-Nintendo/Sega/NEC-made console that I really cared about and it ended up having a nice library of great games. Being able to play Street Fighter Alpha and Tekken at this quality was fantastic and once Resident Evil released I was convinced that this console was going to have many a great game, with Castlevania: SOTN being one of my very favorite games of all time. The PS1's big weakness for me was that Sony's 1st party offerings were nothing like they are with the studios they have now, but securing Final Fantasy and Metal Gear as exclusives showed Sony's dedication toward becoming a major player.

Favorite PS1 games:

1. Castlevania: SOTN
2. Street Fighter Alpha 2
3. Resident Evil 2
4. Resident Evil
5. Metal Gear Solid

Playstation 2! Not even a contest.

The order is:

1. PS2
2. PS1
3. PS4
4. PS3
5. PSP (Can be connected to a TV and since people are saying a handheld like Switch which can be connected to a TV counts as a home console so does PSP then!)
6. PS5
...
999. PSTV

PS5 has too many issues. The Dualsense is a huge step down from the Dualshock 4s ergonomics. You can't transfer PS5 saves to USB drives. No folders although having a huge library of PS4 games. No real next gen games as of now! You only have a demo of The Matrix to get a glimpse of what is possible.
PSTV is as worthless as its handheld counterpart.

Games:

1. Shadow of the Colossus
2. Okami
3. Ico
4. Xenosaga series (except Episode 2)
5. Shadow Hearts series (except New World)
6. Fatal Frame series

Thought I was the only one in thinking this. The DS4 was the perfect controller for me, at least in terms of ergonomics and layout.

Counting only games made specifically for this gen yeah but I mainly prefer playing newer games and PS5 has backwards compatibility with PS4 so its been my favorite

It feels like you are missing the point.  If we listed the top 100 games in that generation, the ps2 had access to what 70%?  80%?  It was one of the most dominate generations I have ever witnessed.  Personal preference, but that fact that "Shenmue II" is being listed proves my point.  Outside a handful, and I do mean a handful, there isn't much the ps2 didn't have on their console.  

Edit
Also if I were you, I would have listed JSRF, given it was one of the better xbox exclusives.  Don't get me wrong, I owned and enjoyed my xbox, but the ps2 smashed the competition.  It wasn't an accident that it is the highest selling console of all time, while both the GC and xbox were meh in sales.

Personally I am glad both MS and Nintendo raised their game and provided Sony with better competition since those days.

Tough call, but I’m going with PS2. It was simply a beast. Between the PS2 and GameCube, I was pretty well set up for gaming.

Top 5 games:

1. FInal Fantasy 12
2. Dragon Quest VIII
3. Final Fantasy 10
4. Okami
5. GTA: Vice City

My favorite PS consoles: PS2 > PS4 > PS1 > PS3. No opinion on PS5 yet since I haven’t really been trying to find one. I’ve pretty much been sticking with Switch.
