This month we’re looking for the top 10 games for the PlayStation 2.

If you need a reminder, here’s a list of PlayStation 2 games

Just list your top 10 below (each counts for one vote, so ranking them isn't important).

Voting is open for a month, and will close on 9 June.

As always, I look forward to seeing your nominations.

1. Rez
2. GTA San Andreas
3. Shadow of the Colossus
4. ICO
5. Gradius V
6. Jak & Daxter The Precursor Legacy
7. We Love Katamari
8. Frequency
9. Transformers
10. Shadow of Rome

No place for Maximo (or its more conservative but still awesome sequel Army of Zin), R-Type Final, Virtua Fighter 4, Bujingai: Swordmaster, Gregory Horror Show, Urban Chaos Riot Response or any number of other worthy games that probably won't get much of a mention from the majority.

EDIT - Also not including games that were multiplatform and significantly better on other platforms (so no RE4).

people voting for VC above SA is a travesty; its a way worse 'game' than SA, even if you can argue the soundtrack is better :x

I've changed my vote back to GTA3 - the sequels undoubtedly improved on the formula but I remember being blown away at the first pictures of a 3D GTA on the gooseberry fool school computers.

Unbelievably, these are the only PS2 games I've ever played. I was big into Nintendo at the time and only got around to some PS2 games once the PS3 was out via backwards compatibility/re-releases.

God Of War
God Of War 2
Ico
Devil May Cry 3
Burnout 3
God Hand
Rachet & Clank

Rez
Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistance
God of War 2
GTA 3
Ico
Shadow of the Colossus
We Love Katamari Damacy

(trying to think of my last two. There's some third parties like RE4 but I associate them with other consoles)

SA was the first game to put me literally to sleep. It only took a few hours too.

SA had this on the soundtrack so it automatically wins for me.

It and 2 other Soundgarden games were on Road Rash. That was an awesome game. Played it on Saturn though. I miss Road Rash and Skitchin'
