After all, PS2 Games marked the childhood of many people, and not to mention that this video game is considered one of the greatest consoles ever made.

And we don't think that the PS2 is one of the greatest consoles of all time, because there is proof of that. And that proof is as follows, the PS2 ranks first on the list of best-selling consoles of all time. To give you an idea, since its launch in 2000, more than 155 million units have been sold.

And it is worth remembering that he only officially arrived here in Brazil, that is, in our country, in 2009.

What Made the PS2 So Successful in Brazil?

The PS2 arrived here in Brazil at a time when the internet was not as advanced as it is today. Young people at that time didn't have many options to spend time and have fun with friends, until… The Playstation arrived, which at that time, completely changed the way children and young people had fun, which was playing video games.

And it wasn't a video game of those small ones that fit in the palm of the hand, it was one connected to the TV, and that had DVD reading. The person could simply control football games, fights, races, etc. on TV, using only one controller and their hands.

And what made the PS2 a great success was certainly its catalog of games, which aroused the interest of children, young people and adults. And those who didn't have money to buy the Playstation at that time could just get some coins and go to a rental store.

In this video store, you could rent a Playstation for a few minutes or hours, you played there, what do you mean? These rental companies had TVs, Playstations and chairs, just sit and play for the time you paid for, simple. Only those who lived through that time know what an incredible feeling it was.

When did the PS2 stop being made?

As we said before, the PS2 was released in the year 2000, and a year later, in 2006, its successor arrived, the PS3. However, the success of the PS2 was so great, that despite the arrival of the PS3, it continued to be manufactured and sold worldwide.

And this continued until the year 2013, when the PS4 arrived, which Sony informed that it would stop manufacturing the console. And in these approximately 13 years of the PS2, more than 4000 official games were released, licensed for the console, and you know what the last one was? The last game released for PlayStation 2 was Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 released on November 8, 2013.

Anyway, now that you know when the PS2 was released and when it was finished manufacturing, let's get back to the main subject. And the main subject of this article is to quote for you which are the 7 best PS2 games of all time.

It is worth remembering that this list with the 7 best PS2 games are not in order of quality, but randomly.

Well, I couldn't help but mention in this list about GTA, which is certainly one of the best PS2 games that ever existed. The game takes place in the fictional state of San Andreas. Where the game's protagonist has to deal with gang wars, clashes with police and relationships with his family and friends.

What made this game a tremendous success was the dynamics that exist in it, where the player does what he wants. Of course, in the game there are consequences for doing what you want, such as being chased by the police, gangs and etc… And suffering that persecution is what makes the game fun.
