  3. 1. Fire Pro Wrestling Returns – it’s the best wrestling game hands down on ps2, in North America, it was ported from Japan, and there’s better wrestling games in Japan but never ported…

    2. Virtual Fighter 4: Evolution – It was a budget title, $20, and is prolly the best fighting game on the system, it’s intricate, easy to pick up, and hard to master, with many fighting styles represented. It was a nice surprise when this came out and I had a lot of friends who got it also, who weren’t necessarily VF fans, but the game is so good

    3. Burnout 3: Takedown – Crashing…always good

    4. Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks – Expanded the MK story at the time, and had a decent VS system within the game. More importantly, THIS WAS A HARD GAME TO FIND! I only played it because the neighbor rented it. Never could we find the game for sale again until the MK PS2 collection came out that had (i think) Deadly Alliance, Deception, Shaolin Monks, and Armageddon

    5. Street Fighter Alpha Anthology – All the Alpha game..ALL OF THEM…even 3 Max/Upper if you high light alpha 3 and input a special code.

    6. NBA Street Vol 3 – Street is an amazing series, and Vol 3 has a slam dunk contest mode…ALSO, create a player mode.

    7. WWE Smackdown: Shut Your Mouth – It’s not the best WWE game on ps2, but it has the best CAW mode in the series. You can make Darth Vader and Spiderman in this version, even has an entrance for Spiderman, also a lot of costume options to make faithful representation of several real life wrestlers, most notably Bret Hart.

    8. Marvel Ultimate Alliance – Great game, better as a multiplayer mostly for the party atmosphere of it, but just as easily played alone. Great controls, and a good story.

    9. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 – First pro skater on PS2, and I hear Wolverine’s in it, but more importantly Bam Margera is in it, and it was at a time when Jackass was HUGE

    10. We Love Katamari – I didn’t get this until a couple years ago on PS3, but it’s a great game
