PS2 games is really cool to play. So, I have a confession to make. I never had a Game cube growing up. Instead, my angsty pre-teen years were spent fittingly with the edgy black PlayStation 2 but it was a lot bulkier back then.
Ever since I saw the trailer for this new console and thought they’re making a second one?!?” I was hooked. I remember playing Airblade at the local Best Buy and realizing I NEEDED one of these things.
I mean this is the future! Little did I know that the PS2 Games would give me some of my fondest gaming experiences as an adolescent.
*PS2 startup noise* ahh, now this brings back some memories.
So, to kick off the new year, let’s countdown some of my favorite PS2 games, and no doubt nostalgia is going to play a big role in this. A lot of these games haven’t aged too well, and playing them again for footage.
Yeah let’s just say they seemed a lot better in my mind’s eye. But either way, it was fun to relive some of the moments that I’ve cherished so dearly, so let’s talk about them! Starting with:
10. Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance
Now this was an interesting one because I only vaguely remember playing it from back in the day.
I had never seen any other Baldur’s Gate games, I just liked it for the dungeon crawling beat them up action! It reminds me a lot of Diablo, with different starting classes, a quaint little tavern with friendly villagers, and increasingly scarier and harder boss fights.
So I wasn’t able to get to the end to show you this because my game kept freezing, but when you beat the game you get the Onyx sword which is by far the strongest weapon, and when you start a new game you can reload your character into it, almost like a pseudo new-game+, so you can destroy anything standing in your way with ease.
I must’ve replayed Dark Alliance 5 or 6 times because it was so fun to plow through enemies.
Yeah that was definitely the reason.
