Games | PlayStation 2: Far and away the best-selling home system of all time, though to be fair, probably two thirds of the units moved were to replace those with worn-out disc drives.


Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter: The Breath of Fire series burns out rather than fading away. Because, y'know, fire.

Final Fantasy X-2: Where Final Fantasy went completely insane.

Final Fantasy XI: Where Final Fantasy went multiplayer.

Final Fantasy XII: Where Final Fantasy went awesomest.

Guitar Hero: Great game or greatest game? Calorie Mate's loving tributs lends credence to the latter.

Ico: Tackling the age-old question: Can a game be hammered into the ground during arguments whether video games can be art?

Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil: The sequel and still pretty OK.

Shadow of the Colossus: Team ICO brings us a bunch of enormous bosses and a big beautiful world to explore.

Suikoden III: Konami's Suikoden series steps into 3D and tries some other new things as well.

Suikoden IV: Konami's Suikoden series refines its 3D presentation, but otherwise stops trying.

Wild Arms 4: What would the Japanese video game equivalent of a spaghetti western be? A yakisoba western? Maybe it's best not to think about it.

Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht: Will humanity succumb at long last to the LOLocaust of the Xeno franchise? No. This series died with Episode III, and thank god for that.
