The game I probably spent the most time on and enjoyed that time would be Final Fantasy X. I actually also liked XII a lot and was rather fond of the battle system but I think I'm alone there

God of War series is definitely up there, as well as Gears of War.

Gran Tourismo 4 was also a favourite

GTA 3. It was groundbreaking. It's hard to believe it was released in 2001.

(Grand Turismo 4 is also right up there)

I liked XII's battle system and the way the world map and such worked, my main problem with it was I felt the story lacked cohesion and pacing.

Final Fantasy VIII or X for me... Hated the XII combat system. Thank God they're using a more traditional system for XIII... (Similar to X-2 afaik)

It's meant to be a cross between the two. I don't understand why people hated it so much, for me I have to agree with NarcissistZero in saying it was the story that lacked. The world, art direction, combat system and everything else was fantastic IMO.

It just seems to me that most FF fans don't want drastic changes in the gameplay mechanics. I on the other hand think there is A LOT of room for improvement.

BATMAN!!!! Ok I know many won't agree, but playing Arkham Asylum was one of the most enjoyable times I remember. I felt like Batman. My little brother watched me play and after I beat up 20 guys, I always would say "I'm Batman." It's a good game to play with somebody watching.

I will name some of my fav PS2 games. Most played are GT4 and F1 2006

I liked pop sands of time quite a lot when it was released (glad to know they are making sands of time pop again this year) Always wanted to play ICO but the game was gone when I came to know about it, no previous GT games as well Shadow of colossus was also impressive.

My list, in no particular order (console exclusives only):

Skies of Arcadia
Metroid Prime
Final Fantasy X (surprised to see so many votes for this, I didn't realize people liked it so much!)
God of War
Metal Gear Solid 3

Agreed, the game's replayability really suffers from this. Otherwise it would have made my list, I really enjoyed FFXII.

Personally, I hated it because it made the battles less strategic. I enjoyed FFX the most I can say because you could think for ages how to respond to something etc etc. The turn indicator also played a huge role in planning your strategy for your next move. In other games, its just a matter of inputting the command as fast as possible... And while it was fine with active ATB in other games, I think it was a mess with FFXII. Combined with a lacking story, it was enough for me to lose interest half way through. It was the first FF game (traditional that is...) I didn't finish since starting the series with FFVII...

For me, it would be these games, in no particular order.

Gran Turismo 4

Rock Band 1

Guitar Hero 1

Project Gotham Racing 2

Halo 2 & Halo 3

Forza Motorsport 2

Devil May Cry

Tourist Trophy

Winning Eleven 7 (Pro Evolution Soccer 3 I believe)



If I had to pick a single one, it would be a tie between Gran Turismo 4 (PS2) and Project Gotham Racing 2. For me, the best console of the decade was PS2.
