Creating a list of our favorite games of the PlayStation 2 era is easy.

Winnowing that list down to only 25 is an exercise in nostalgia fueled aggravation. There are hundreds of PS2 titles that were groundbreaking and easily deserving of classsic status.

Here is 25 of the Greastet PS2 Games We Love and Miss.
